This Savage Song and Growing Out of Young Adult

This Savage Song┬áby Victoria Schwab is a Young Adult novel. This is the thought that kept traveling through my head the entire time that I was reading it.

My Tattoos Are Stories

I've loved tattoos for quite a while now--ever since I binge-watched a bunch of episodes of L.A. Ink once when I was in elementary school (I guess TV really is poisoning the minds of our youth).

Boy howdy has it been a minute since I did a blog thing. Not since the election was still fresh and painful (it's no longer fresh, but definitely still painful).

Living Life to Write It

I did something this year that I never in a million years imagined that I would. I joined a sorority. *Cue the gasps and cries of outrage. Ladies are fainting left and right.* It's not really a "real" sorority, it's a service sorority, but we still do some sorority-type things. Adding this gasp-worthy extracurricular activity...

There are moments in my live when I'm struck with the frantic need to do everything. I constantly feel like I'm running out of time to live life and do what I want. In three and a half measly years, I will have to have a real job and pay rent and all of that... Continue Reading →
