On the Subject of…

High School. Recently I have been binge watching  the, sadly, short-lived Carrie Diaries (only 2 seasons…sad face.) And like all the teen dramas I’ve enjoyed in my life (Dawson’s Creek, The OC, One Tree Hill, etc) watching it makes me feel like maybe I missed something. I never had a first kiss in high schoolContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

Quality over Quantity

Think back to when you were in the 2nd grade. How many friends did you have? If you’re a social butterfly like me, then you had lots of friends. I knew practically everyone in the 2nd grade at my little, country elementary school and they all knew me. I was the one who was alwaysContinue reading “Quality over Quantity”

Overachiever Much?

Back in high school, no one could accuse me of being an overachiever. I sat in the back of the class, half-assed my work and got bad grades to show for it. I graduated with zero honors and went to Community College because I didn’t get in to FSU on my first go around. AllContinue reading “Overachiever Much?”

I Don’t Believe In That Anymore

Back when I was 15 and a wide-eyed, romantic high school kid, I believed whole-heartedly in ‘The One.’ I believed there was One predestined,  preordained (I won’t say perfect, but pretty darn close) person God had picked out for me. And it was just a matter of time till he found me or I foundContinue reading “I Don’t Believe In That Anymore”

I Know the Good Stuff

I have been on exactly one real Valentine’s date in my entire life. I’ve been on plenty of V-Day dates with my girlfriends where we sit around and talk about how awesome we are all and how being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t all that bad. And I’ve spent plenty of Valentine’s Days watching actionContinue reading “I Know the Good Stuff”

The Indefinable, Wonderfully Made Me!

It’s fair to say that back in high school and even in college, I did not know myself very well. When I was little I was the outgoing one. Always in the middle of whatever was happening. The center of the spotlight.   In middle school I learned that not everyone valued the ability toContinue reading “The Indefinable, Wonderfully Made Me!”

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 14: Torrance Shipman from Bring It On Today is travel day and I needed something easy and off my face. So I chose the quintessential high school cheerleader movie from 2000.
