As someone who is never up on trends, I recently saw the app called Sararah and wondered what it was. It is, according to all the research I’ve done, an app that allows people to anonymously send messages, in the name of constructive criticism. Because that always ends well. (more…)
Wash your hands after going to the bathroom. You’ll have more friends, and fewer strangers will judge you.
Part I of probably many, many more to come.
I don’t advocate violence. I try to be a good person. But if I read one more thing about being special or different or atypical followed by the words “but that’s okay,” I’m going to start throwing punches. Of course not literally, because all of this bullshit is online, due to the fact that if anyone said that in a face-to-face conversation with someone, they’d have already been bullied, gotten over it, and become a better, more tolerable human for the experience.

If you’re making coffee, brew a full pot. Once you’ve had your fill and the rest has cooled off, put it in a sealable and pourable container and stick it in the fridge for iced coffee. (I suggest these.) One pot will last at least three or four days.

I know a lot of random information, and I have the blessing-curse combo of being able to see every side of a problem. I figured I could put all this to good use.

So ask away!
M is for magic.
In which I weave together writing advice and my feelings while listening to Zac Brown Band.
M is for mischief.
In which I talk about the major downsides of an INTJ personality, specifically mine. And maybe weave in more writing advice, for any of you trying to write one.
M is for muffins.
Because I made some this morning and they were delicious, and I felt like I needed a third item in this list. (more…)
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you had everything you wanted? The perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect spouse, kids, dog. The book deal. The movie deal that sprouts from the book deal. The travel that comes with being a famous author. The successful coffeeshop in a tourist trap town. I think about that a lot.
And yet, I don’t avidly work toward it.

If you’ve ever learned a foreign language, you know what the subjunctive tense is. It’s the “if” verb tense, the one that accompanies things that might happen.
