I have a severe case of cabin fever. I want to go outside in shorts and a tshirt, wade barefoot through the creek in the woods, and stay out until the only light left comes from the fireflies. Too bad last night we got another two inches of snow. To offset my longing for spring by just a little I made purchase of some seeds and soil and I decided to start my own little summer from my bedroom. After purchasing lavender, cilantro, basil, and carnation seeds along with small little planters, I decided I wanted to do something a little fancier for… View Post

Like many little girls, I dreamt of growing up to be a disney princess. I most identified with the clever and sweet Belle, perhaps it was because of my big brown eyes and dark hair, or maybe it was because Beauty in the Beast would play in my house on a loop, so often that my brother begged my mom to name me Beauty. No, not Belle, just Beauty. Whatever it was, a small part of my heart truly believed one day somebody would discover my true identity and sweep me away to live in my castle. I’m a little… View Post

Organization: The one word that used to cause me to let out an audible groan. I was never the girl in elementary school whose desk was impeccably neat, and keeping my room tidy has never been on the top of my to-do list.

I try not to be bothered by much, and for the most part I’m not. But something that is a huge pet-peeve of mine is the ways girls treat girls. Way too many girls are catty and mean and just not nice to other girls. If we are going to be mean we should at least focus that on stinky ‘ol boys, right? But lets just actually be nice to everyone. Good karma all around that way! With that said, here are the top ways I see girls bringing down other girls. It’s easy to fall into the cycle, and if… View Post

I am generally a very easygoing person. I like everyone, generally they like me back. If not, that’s fine, I hold no grudges, but I mean, their loss. I’m mostly joking. But if I don’t like you, then I have a reason. And it’s a good one, because I am queen of second chances. In fact, in my eighteen years of life, there are only two people who I can’t find a single redeeming quality in. A former teacher of mine, and a classmate who spent an unbelievable amount of his time trying (and to a great extent, succeeding) to… View Post
