What is this plan you speak of?

Why Being A Go With The Flow Kind Of Person Is The Best

If you are a go with the flow kind of person, your life is usually a hot mess. Only the most random and unfortunate things happen to you, but you don’t let it bother you. Some call us “disorganized,” but that is such a harsh word. We try to set a plan, but it usually does not go the way we expected. Usually, that would bother most people, but not us. Our cute planner we bought is basically unused or is full of things that never got done exactly according to plan, but being this kind of person is actually a gift without us realizing it.

1. Nothing bothers us.

What’s stress? Since we never know what is actually going on half the time, when something happens that really throws a wrench in our day, we never let it bother us because it is just another funny story we can tell and an opportunity for a new adventure. Oh, my car broke down? That’s okay. I became friends with the tow truck driver, Instagrammed a picture of us, heard his life story, and now I have a date with his son.

2. We’re almost always in a good mood.

If something is happening in our lives that is bothering us or we are supposed to go to something we really don’t want to, we do something spontaneous and toss our plan completely out the window. I don’t care if it was a “scheduled” (what does that word even mean?) part of my day, the one part of my life that I have in control is my mood, and I’m not going to let something stupid ruin that. Doing something out of nowhere can really get you out of a rut, I’ll deal with the consequences tomorrow.

3. "Comfort zone" isn’t in our vocabulary.

We’re always ready to try something new and aren’t worried about something tearing us down. If I’m good at it, great. If I’m not, oh well. Since we are never really worried about something going wrong, because we just go along with the flow, adversity doesn’t really bother us. If anything it just makes us work harder. We are always trying to break barriers in fun, creative, and spontaneous ways.

4. We are the most fun people you will ever meet.

We don’t need every day for the next two weeks to be planned out for us. To be honest, we really don’t want that anyways. We are the queens of spontaneity. Some people will plan that day trip to the beach a week in advance, but for us, we think of it the night before and it ends up being the most fun day of our lives. Usually, there would be set time we leave, arrive, and head back home, but not in the lives of a go with the flow person. We leave whenever we feel like it, stopping for food, ice cream, and that random amusement park. Oops - we never actually made it to the beach? Still was the best day ever. You know why? Because life is just so much more fun when you don’t know what the hell is going to happen.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
