Just live your damn life, homie!

26 Things I've Learned In the Past Year

1. Don't trust everyone you meet - hell, don't trust anyone you meet.

2. Drinking water is actually wicked important. People don't just say that because they like the taste.

3. Your social life can wait, missing one night out won't kill you.

4. School work is more important than the one night you were so worried about missing.

5. Use the term "friends" very loosely.

6. Don't forget about those who matter the most (your home team).

7. Don't say yes if you don't want to - to the party, the drink, the people... just say no if you want to say no.

8. Running sucks but bread is good so ya know....

9. If it is over 50 degrees out and you don't sit outside for a least a half hour that day, you're just not doing it right.

10. Do at least one thing you really don't want to do every day - no matter how little motivation you have, do it. You'll feel better afterwards.

11. You can be the nicest person on earth and there will still be people who don't like you. Who cares.

12. Smile more (cliche).

13. Have at least one hobby that you love.

14. Listen to good music. Life's too short to listen to bad music.

15. Also, listen to that music on vinyl. Trust me.

16. If you're upset, write it down. Read it the next day and realize that life's to short to be upset about trivial matters.

17. Coffee shops cure all.

18. Social media is stupid. Delete the apps and log on once per day on your computer.

19. Similarly, you don't need the puppy filter to look cute, but if you like the damn filter use the damn filter... who cares.

20. Do more things alone. Company is nice, but being able to hear your own thoughts is important too.

21. If you want to drive an hour to get the coffee you like, do it.

22. Don't apologize for things that aren't your fault / things that you cannot change.

23. Do apologize when you actually should. Swallow your damn pride.

24. Give your old towels to cat shelters. They need them.

25. Read a book you want to read, not just the ones your professors assign.

26. Just live your damn life homie.

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.
