An Open Letter To My Aunt

Clothes, Secrets, and Laughter, We Shared It All.

An Open Letter To My Aunt

I have no idea where to start! We have never had a normal aunt and niece relationship. We were more like best friends or sisters than aunt and niece, but I would not have had it any other way.

I feel like we have pretty much grown up together. We have been through so much and so many fights, but no matter what we always had each other back. It seemed like nobody could tell us anything because we were going to do it our way anyways. All those times we had to sneak around to be able to go out to eat. All of our adventures, some of which landed up in some questionable areas of town. It seemed like every day was a new adventure.

Our elaborate pranks were the best, though. We played practical jokes on so many people; I could never keep count. We laughed at so many different things and occasionally fell off the bed laughing. We had to laugh in some situations in order to keep ourselves sane.

Pretty sure we attracted crazy people. They usually came by the dozen and in every variety. We laughed through every liar, thief, and manipulator.

Oh, and I cannot forget about all the times we shared clothes. At some point, I could not distinguish between our clothes. I am also pretty sure one of our fights consisted of whose clothes belonged to whom. Clothes, secrets, and laughter, we shared it all.

We had so many great times and so many good memories. Even though we are not as close anymore, we can always cherish the relationship that we use to have. I just want you to know that I still love you with all of my heart and I would do anything you needed me to do! Oh and thank you for putting up with me for the last 19 years! It is a hard job that not many people could do!

Thank you for being the greatest aunt and best friend I could have ever wished for! Thank you for always being at every event that I was a part of. Thank you for loving me and always being the shoulder I needed to cry on. Thank you for being YOU!


Your favorite niece!

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid,, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
