From Eden

Her: His voice was engraved into my skin.

From Eden

Her: His voice was engraved into my skin.

The rhythm of his laugh was in tune with my heartbeat.

We were crafted by the hands of God before our own creation, just to exist in tempered time against the chains of solitude.

Him: She was Beauty in mastered form.

She was a message stripped from my skin and delivered to my soul by way of grace.

I was a crippled mass of flesh and bone with a missing rib and an empty heart, void of the perfection she bore.

And then Time carried her smile to my spirit and cracked the merciless walls of my soul until there was nothing left but dust.

Her: He was Brilliance and Honor and quiet sound.

He was my bloodstream, and I was his heart.

My existence was tethered firmly to his, and his to mine, a grand gesture of a love that neither of us could have created or crafted with our own hands.

A love that existed outside of us and within eternity.

Him: I stand in reverential dismay at our entwining futures and our unremembered pasts.

We were born for the other, a present example of tangible purpose.

Her: It is impossible to enumerate the reasons we were bound to be one. But only one reason mattered:

We were loved.

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).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
