100 Things that Annoy Me

When writing this… I definitely noticed a few themes. When I wrote this list, I did so in a stream of consciousness – I did not think of 100 different things that annoyed or bother me, but rather thought of my number one pet peeve and thought of other annoyances that are related to the previous one. Not only am I completely hypocritical (me being / doing some of the things on this list) but I do not take into any personal reasons for why people do these things. But I did learn a few things from this list; mostly that I just really don’t like people, but I also want to point out that I think it’s really annoying when people say “they hate people”, so there’s an example there.

I also kind of realized that many of my topics loop. I started off with hating people to hating the way our world works, only to come right back to people. I’ve also come to realize that it seemed almost too easy for me to list 100 things that annoy me, and for that, maybe I really need to chill out! I also did attempt to be slightly humorous when writing this, so do take into account that i'm not 100% serious with some of these.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
