The 'Mamma Mia!' Quote I Live By

My motto at all times.

The 'Mamma Mia!' Quote I Live By
Skyler Anderson

Now, my favorite movie of all time is "Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again," this movie is my dream. I would kill to be young Donna (played by Lilly James). One quote that stuck with me from this movie is, "Life is short, the world is wide, I wanna make some memories."

Let's break this down. Life is short. On average you have about 70 years on this earth and for a good chunk of those, your parents get to decide what you do. Then, with all the things to do in this world, will you have enough time to do it all? Pus, calculate in the time you have to spend working and doing all the parts of daily life, you have even less tie than you thought. And, you never know what can happen, you aren't promised another day.

The world is wide. A true statement. The world is wide and vast and there is so much to see. One hundred and ninety-five countries. That's a lot. There are also wide differences around the world, so many cultures to be enriched with.

I wanna make some memories. Pretty self-explanatory.

Here's the summary. I'm not guaranteed any amount of time on this earth, I want to use it while I have it. I have a lot of ground to cover in this wide world. And you can bet your money I'm gonna make some memories while doing it.

I want to travel to as many countries as possible and meet more people than I can remember so that I can connect and feel like I have come to understand this world. But, I also want to make some crazy memories. I want to skydive, I want to bungee jump, I want to swim with sharks, I want to travel alone and be perfectly terrified and perfectly in awe at the same time. Because...

"Life is short, the world is wide, I wanna make some memories." — Donna Sheridan

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. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. 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.
