Why It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas With Baking Cookies And Making Memories

Why I Love the Christmas Season!

Now that it is Christmas time I have an excuse to play my holiday playlist that includes Pentatonix, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift. (Yes I am a pop Christmas kind of girl. I can now bake my Christmas cookies with cream cheese frosting (See recipe at the bottom!) and decorate the Christmas tree.

I can attempt to learn how to make Christmas Crack (A dessert with chocolate, caramel, and crackers) and decorate the fireplace. I can wrap and give my Christmas presents I have been saving all year long for family and friends.

One thing I love about Christmas time is getting to watch the Christmas specials. "Prep and Landing" is my favorite Disney short, and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. I love Christmas not for the presentions and hot chocolate but for the time I get to spend with my family. My family makes the holidays special and also can make a gloomy day feel like a magical day.

2 sticks of unsalted butter

1 cup of white sugar

In a mixer cream the butter and salt until smooth. Gradually add the egg, sugar and vanilla extract until mixed thoroughly. Next, add the baking soda and flour one cup at a time. If the mix is sticky add a little flour.

Scoop the dough into the tablespoon and place on a cookie sheet. Bake 7-10 minutes!

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Using a mixer beat together the cream cheese and butter. One cup at a time add the powder sugar and vanilla extract. The longer you whip, the lighter the frosting is!

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.

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.
