5 Reasons Why You Should Learn How To Sew

During my senior year of high school, I got really interested in sewing because I felt that it would be a cool skill to have and it looked fun to try out. My grandmother has a sewing machine and she has been making me clothing ever since I was born, so I figured that it would be very easy to pick up and learn. Plus, I already had a teacher readily available. Since first learning to sew, I have made many really cool items that I am really proud of, and I encourage everyone to try it out for themselves!

1. It's fun!

Sewing is a lot of fun once you get into it. I am the first to admit that it could be a little frustrating when you first begin, but that can be fixed with a little practice. Sewing is one of those things that get better with practice, but trust me, once you know what you are doing or have a general idea of what you are doing, it can be a really rewarding experience.

2. It's a creative outlet in which you can express yourself!

Do you feel that it is impossible to find clothing that fits your style in stores? The great part about sewing is that you can make whatever you want in whatever style you want. After learning how to sew with different prints and patterns, the possibilities are endless.

3. It’s really gratifying wearing something that you knew you made.

There is nothing more satisfying than someone coming up to you to tell you they like what you are wearing and you telling them that you made it yourself. One of the greatest aspects of making your own clothes is that it will be completely unique and no one else would have the same thing.

4. It gives you a chance to upcycle items you already own.

Nothing worse than having to give up your favorite article of clothing because it is too small or it doesn’t look as good as it once did. When you are able to sew, you would be able to give your favorite items of clothing a new life as something else that you can continue to wear. You will be great at fixing other people’s clothes.

5. You will be the coolest kid with the coolest Instagram feed.

Trust me, there is nothing cooler than posting your own creations online. You would be able to create your own style and look that you can share with other people. You also will be able to foster a community with other people that have similar interests and fashion styles that you have.

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.
