10 things that happen when you move out of your parent's house

Yes, I'm moving out. No, I don't hate you mom.

10 things that happen when you move out of your parent's house

1. When you announce that you're moving out, it is an ordeal.

2. When you finally move out on your own, everything you do is kind of exciting.

i.e. grocery shopping, keeping yourself alive after a spell of sickness.

3. You discover a new hobby/ enjoy a hobby to its fullest extent.

For me...I discovered cooking and I was also able to sleep in more often.. (hey!..sleeping can be a hobby)

4. After a couple of weeks or so, the novelty wears off. Not that you don't like it, because you can still do stuff you wouldn't be able to do with people around...like spazz out and call it dancing.

5. You have to get ORGANIZED.

Example: making sure you pay your bills on time because OVERDUE notices are freaking scary.

6. You have no other option than to budget...but sometimes you gotta remind yourself that it is ok to TREAT YOSELF once and awhile.

7. You become pretty nostalgic sometimes, so you start making dishes your parents or grandparents make like Caldo de Pollo, Arroz con Salchichas...Going to go get some pan dulce...ya tu sabes.

8. You become like your parents in the way you keep your "household," even though you swore they were a little cray for vacuuming at 7am on a Saturday.

9. Everything you grew up on from superstitions to home remedies stays with you.

10. In the end, you take everything your parents taught you, and mix it in with your own lifestyle and values, and you end up really appreciating everything they did for you 10000x more.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
