And usually people don’t brag about surviving happy hour but I’m going to because it was 6 fucking hours, 10 stiff whiskeys and, like, 23 bowls of popcorn worth of happy hour. I thought I’d be home by 7 and I definitely got home somewhere […]

A few things have interestingly enough coincided this week, so I’m going to take it as a sign from the universe that what I’m about to write is meant to be. The first being the conversation I had this morning with my friend Bev ^, the second being the fucking shit storm of opinions on Kim K’s latest […]

I love birthdays. If there’s anything you should know about me, it’s that I love birthdays. I LOVE them – I don’t understand people who take them lightly. When you reach a milestone as big as living another year and getting to kickstart the next, you should celebrate. You deserve it – life isn’t always easy and it’s almost […]
