You win, Target, you win

I get on kicks. Everyone around me knows this. My kicks sometimes have a theme, or sometimes they’re so impulsive that they take on a life of their own. Writing has always been a central theme to my kicks. Whatever it is that I want to pursue at the time, I’ll always find that I […] [Read More]

Me-Day V-Day Declaration

on
“You’re a liar. Straight liar,” my friend, Kyle, said. “No way any girl who says she doesn’t really care about Valentine’s Day is telling the truth.” I was shocked. Was I really the first girl to ever admit I’m not that into Valentine’s Day? And if so, am I breaking some pact I didn’t get […] [Read More]

Challenges of a storyteller: My life on the “big screen”

on
I love the movie, “The Notebook.” I’m a hopeless romantic. I cry at weddings. I cry when my friends get hurt by life’s daily tumbles. I also cry when I watch Marley & Me and the Lion King — every single time. I’m completely okay with all of this. It’s what makes me, me. It’s […] [Read More]

Gold diggers beware, I’m onto you

on
Click. Click. Click. Giggle. Click. Click. Click. The girl behind me at Starbucks is going crazy on her BlackBerry. And giggling every time a text message annoyingly rings in. My obvious response? Sigh. She’s in l-u-s-t. Thankfully, she’s with a friend who is quite inquisitive about this little situation we have on our hands so […] [Read More]

Dear Mr. Smith…

on
Well, it’s about that time. I’m packing my bags to head to New York for a great career opportunity that will also bring me closer to my family and friends. But don’t worry, I’ll still be writing about my own and my friends mishaps in relationships and life because God knows that writing supply will […] [Read More]

Facebooking your feelings

on
I’m positive I’m not speaking for just myself when I say I can’t take people with emotional Facebook statuses anymore. There, I said it. A song lyric here or there is fine, but when you’re spilling out the most detailed description of your recent break-up with direct quotes to boot, honey, even Nancy Drew doesn’t […] [Read More]

From NY to FL to CT: One girl’s adventure to realize it’s okay to be alone

on
Sometimes, even at the ripe age of 23, I look back on my dating life and say to myself, “What was I thinking? No, seriously, what?” I’ve always been the kind of girl to be in a long-term, committed relationship. I’ve never had flings, or one-night stands, or any of those things that people cringe […] [Read More]

Desperation vs. persistence

on
I have some friends, who, bless their hearts, don’t know when to quit it. One in particular, who we’ll call “Sue,” met a man not too long ago and they went out together on a few dates. From what she had told me, they really seemed to hit it off. They began to text and […] [Read More]

Outfit? Check. Place? Check. Convo? Umm…

on
So you’ve met someone great and you’re gearing up for that first date. You’ve picked out the perfect outfit, know where you’re going and are in the process of figuring out what to do with your hair. But something that can kill the connection even after all those crucial steps are met? Terrible conversation. Nothing […] [Read More]

Finding love is just a train ride away…literally

on
Get your train bags ready my beautiful Connecticut ladies, love is just a Grand Central ticket away. New York has taken the 2009 top honors for the best city for singles, according to Forbes.com. Last year, Atlanta took it all, but apparently it wasn’t hot enough to keep the flames going. That’s when the Big […] [Read More]
