Thrift Store Cosplay Day 19

Day 19: Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City This should be no surprise to you…I’m a Carrie Bradshaw through and through. I’ve taken the Buzzfeed quiz, so I know it’s true! It’s the hair…the fashion sense…the love of shoes…the independent lifestyle. And while I haven’t been on the dating scene in quite a while,Continue reading “Thrift Store Cosplay Day 19”

Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers

Let’s talk about sex. A very personal topic, to be sure. And I’ll be straight with you, internet. I’ve never had it. I didn’t have it on prom night or experiment in college. I didn’t have a Bradshaw-esque one night stand in New York City or make a really bad drunken decision. (Well, that’s notContinue reading “Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers”

Online Dating

It was my first foray back into the “wonderful world of online dating.” Actually, it was my re-introduction to dating after a very long time…period. And boy, was I rusty! I flexed my dating muscles by downloading 2 of the most popular dating apps: Tinder and Bumble. Basically the same thing in different clothes. The Dr. Jekyl and Mr.Continue reading “Online Dating”

Starry Night

When I think of starry nights, I think of one in particular. There was a girl and a boy and a perfect date. A date so memorable that I made an episode about it in my web series a few years ago. Take a look… You know what’s funny? Well, maybe funny is the wrongContinue reading “Starry Night”

Dating and Star Wars

It was a blind date…plain and simple. I walked into it with the lowest of expectations, because experience had taught me to be cautious and common sense had taught me to be sensible. I wasn’t bitter or jaded about the endeavor…not yet, at least. Just realistic, something I try very hard not to be onContinue reading “Dating and Star Wars”

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…”

On the Subject of…

Dating! To say that I’ve put a moratorium on dating, would be a bit of an understatement. I’ve downright boycotted the concept, the institution, the application, the very existence of dating in my life. I’m not talking about the sweet, meet cute kind you find in rom coms. You know the kind… “Oops, I spilled myContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

Return to Blogland

You know what’s hard to do? Write a book about boys and dating when you currently have no interest in boys or dating. I know, I know…I wrote an entire 40 episode web series on boys and dating. So…there’s that. And I can’t really describe to you what’s changed. The fundamental paradigm shift that’s happened inContinue reading “Return to Blogland”

Pink!

When I was a kid, I hated pink, with a vengeance. My deep and utter loathing extended into middle school and high school and even into college. I thought myself to be a cool-colors kinda girl, gravitating to blues, greens and purples instead of pinks, oranges and yellows. My insistence on the evils of aContinue reading “Pink!”

Platonic Friendlationships

Downton Abbey Season 6 Spoilers Ahead…       I confess. As I’ve watched Downton Abbey the last 2 seasons, I’ve come to wish that Branson and Mary would try and make a go of it. After all, they get along famously and make each other genuinely better people (especially in Mary’s case.) Plus littleContinue reading “Platonic Friendlationships”
