Date Anna: A 'Bisexual Icon' In New Jersey

Date Anna: A Taylor Swift-Loving Bisexual Icon Who Dislikes The 'Jeopardy' Theme Song

Let's see how this goes.


I realized that I would rather not die alone or die with any more regrets, so I am putting myself out there. My name is Anna and I am what you people on Tumblr might call a "bisexual icon" or a "bicon." I'm a Cancer whose birthday is June 27. I like long walks on the beach while wearing shoes, Indian food, drag queens, and The Pussycat Dolls' new music video. My dislikes include, but are not limited to slow walkers, the "Jeopardy" theme song, chalk, and yoga.

About Me:

  • Age: 21
  • Height: 5'3"
  • School: Drew University
  • Job: Student, Writer
  • Location: Madison, NJ
  • Hometown: Hamden, CT

Fun Facts:

  • I can remember almost everything that happened in one day, the plot and dialog of a movie or TV show, and almost every song title and artist, but I forget stupid daily things like taking my allergy medicine and getting my water bottle out of the fridge
  • I'm vegetarian
  • I do a lot of celebrity impressions
  • I can rap Nicki Minaj's verse in "Bang Bang"


  • Dogs or cats? Cats, though I do like dogs.
  • Night owl or morning person? Night owl. It's why I'm not a morning person.
  • "The Bachelor" or "Keeping Up With The Kardashian"? Neither, I prefer Bravo.
  • Taylor Swift or Beyonce? Tayonce! They're both queens!
  • Baby Yoda or Baby Groot? I didn't see either movie.

Never have I ever _______________.

There's a lot of things I haven't done, but I think the only thing that is relevant here is that I'm a virgin.

If there was one funny story from my life that perfectly describes me as a person it's this:

I went to the beach with my family and I tried to read in the sunlight, but I ended up getting distracted watching a couple fight about something and having my family take photos of me for Instagram.

Four qualities I am looking for in a partner and one I am absolutely not:

  1. Extroverted. I am an introvert and would like someone to bring me out of my shell, and encourage me not to stay in all the time.
  2. Good sense of humor. I like to laugh.
  3. Be a fan of or be able to appreciate the amazingness that is Taylor Swift. I will be talking about her a lot.
  4. An income.
  5. Don't be a Trump supporter, a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, any of that. You don't have to have the exact same political views as me, but just don't support the idiot that is our president.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one fo my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"
