Can We Discuss Disney Princesses Though


I was on the phone with my dad yesterday crying (surprise) over my lack of romantic luck recently. He gave me some really wonderful advice, the most hilarious of which came when he said, "The worst thing Disney ever did for society was write those stupid happy endings." Or something to that effect -- I tend... Continue Reading →

Mingbin, Gaga and Me


I do not want to get on this plane.  I want to stay in this state of airport gate-waiting for eternity. I'm not afraid to fly. I don't particularly like it, and usually I feel a little ill when I fly, but it's only an hour flight and I have good music and a book about... Continue Reading →

Webs


Three spiders have made their homes outside my apartment windows. Sometimes, I watch them spin their webs in the dark, orange streetlights barely illuminating the fibers. Usually they're sheltered from the rainy Oregon weather but every so often, when it rains sideways, huge holes appear in the meticulously symmetrical designs. I'm always so amazed at the...

November 9, 2016


You may have noticed that uh...my country has made a terrible decision. The fact that Donald Trump is the president elect made it hard to get out of bed this morning. Just existing today has been a struggle for so many of us; I'm afraid and angry and sad and disappointed and horrified. And the... Continue Reading →

Think Less, Live More


Cosmetology school is hard. Not "bachelors in psychology" hard, not "this statistics class is so confusing" hard, not "I live in India and have had E. coli for 3 weeks" hard, but it's hard. It's a different form of learning and living. I don't always want to touch people. A lot of times, my anxiety... Continue Reading →

Its my day off, so I'm laying on a blanket in the park reading a book and watching people play with their dogs. There's a little breeze, the kind that barely glides across your skin, the kind that feels so soft it's like a little kiss hello. My feet sit in the sun, the rest... Continue Reading →

Summer Vacations Are Over


I just realized I'll never have three solid months off for the summer ever again. And if we're being totally honest, I'm not that sad about that. I never really loved summer vacation. I grew up in a pretty rural area, but it wasn't so rural that everyone else lived in a rural area....if that makes sense...... Continue Reading →

If You’re Ever Feeling Ugly


Maybe you look in the mirror and notice that your chin hair (mine's named Vern, so don't be ashamed of yours) is growing back with a vengeance. Maybe you have a huge zit right in between your eyebrows, and it's totally blocking your third eye. It's possible that your butt grew two sizes overnight (sort of like the... Continue Reading →
