Saving the Earth, One Amazon Prime Order at a Time

Amazon Prime Day was July 15th & 16th, and I decided to take advantage of my opportunity to save the earth.

Last night, while watching Pocahontas on Netflix, I remembered out of nowhere that it was the last day for Amazon's huge sale for its Prime Members. If you're anything like me, you avoid Amazon because you can get caught up looking at things you don't need, and eventually purchase them. Well, with 4 hours left of Amazon Prime Day, I decided to take advantage of this sale, and save the earth.

It's no secret that we need to take better care of the earth. Recycling, using less plastic (no straws), using products made of recyclable materials, and avoiding littering are ways we can be conscientious and eco-friendly. I've been spending a lot of time looking into ways of being less wasteful. I have a few metal straws at home which are very useful, but then I realized that it's not only plastic straws and plastic water bottles we're wasting. Pretty much everything we buy is packaged in plastic- cleaning supplies, toiletries, and even cooking spices. It is absolutely understandable that switching to an eco-friendly lifestyle can be difficult, but if everyone at least tries just a little, we could all make a huge difference.

In my attempt to contribute to a better cause, I purchased an eco-friendly toothbrush and eco-friendly wooden utensils. It didn't even cross my mind that things like toothbrushes and disposable razors were made out of plastic. There are eco-friendly alternatives that you can purchase that work just as well. When I go out to eat, I can now reject plastic utensils and pull out my handy dandy eco-friendly utensils. And every time I brush my teeth I will know in the back of my mind that I am taking one extra step to save our planet. Anything helps, and if you're interested in following this movement and buying these items, I will link them down below. Everyday is Earth Day, and we should appreciate this beautiful world we live in. Practice good habits and let's be eco-friendly together!

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.

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, Chemistry.com, 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).
