Five Angry Renaissance Babies that Are a Mood for Western New York Weather

The title is long but so is this winter

Five Angry Renaissance Babies that Are a Mood for Western New York Weather
Alanna Paris

This is the background you need to know in order to understand this post. It is April. It is snowing in Western New York. This is oppressive. We are being punished. It is inequitable and unjust. Now here are five ugly Renaissance babies who set the tone for my bitterness.

1. When you need a lift and it's too icy to drive

The worst part of never-ending winter is the driving. It is horrible just to slide across the ice walking, let alone barreling down the road at 55mph.

2.When you wake up and look out the window and see that snow flurry greeting you

The dread that fills your soul as you wake up to see bleak, gray skies, and snow flurrying around is beyond measure. You know how you felt in the second Hunger Games book when you realized Katniss was going for the Hunger Games round two? Yeah, that's the level of dread.

3. When you are trying to stay warm but all your winter clothes are boxed away

There is nothing more disappointing than breaking out your floral button ups and lacy dresses and having to cover them up with clunky cardigans and not quite warm enough jackets. Or even worse, you just continue to wear your winter clothing.

4. When they claim it's Easter but it's seeming more like Christmas

Nothing is more horrific than waking up on Easter morning to see large, heavy snowflakes murdering your tulips. Nothing.

5. When you slip and fall into a snowbank and you decide life is suffering

There's the point when you just give up and decide, this fate, and you must suffer. This is heightened when your work or school is out of salt and the ice is everywhere and you become one with the snow that is, in fact, colder than the air. Life becomes suffering, everything is suffering, I'm cold.

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.
