Debbie Thornberry Is My Spirit Animal

Debbie Thornberry Is My Spirit Animal

I am Debbie Thornberry & Debbie Thornberry is Me


Crop tops, outrageous curly hair, jeans ripped at the knee, this is sort of weird seeing these pictures side by side… It also goes without saying that I have quite the collection of flannels.

Then there’s those days when I just can’t even. My day just doesn’t seem to be going very well at all, I’m crabby, hungry and just overall pissed that Red Bull Italian Soda’s don’t exist out of Seattle, Washington. Debbie living in the jungle against her will and me living in the Midwest, I can feel her pain AKA leave me alone or else.

Sub Debbie’s love for rock & roll bands for my love of EDM and various DJ’s and we have a pretty good match! Her obsession with said bands is over dramatic and unrealistic to her parents, but all I can say is “Girl, same." Not being able to see these amazing artists live gives us both genuine heartache, so we settle for headbang sessions in the car with our mains.

Though she is just a character on a cartoon, I could tell that Debbie Thornberry is a unique soul who has a lot of things to say, much like myself. In the show you would often see her on the phone or writing in her diary. You can look anywhere around you and find a millennial on their phone, it’s 2016. There are several times when one might think I’m just browsing the interwebs when my eyes are glued to my phone, but there's a good chance I’m actually saving ideas for my next Odyssey article!

All in all, Debbie Thornberry is me and I am Debbie Thornberry. We’ve been relocated to a somewhat undesirable location, but from time to time we find ourselves enjoying it. Of course when we realize we actually might like our new home we have to shoot back with sarcasm and wit, but that’s just the teenage angst in us.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
