Tea Is An All The Time Appropriate Gift

Not just the times where you expect tea to be given.


I might be that old lady who loves to drink tea. Think of the last time you went out and got a box of tea bags and made the tea in hot water and just drank it? Maybe add some honey or sugar? Without being sick or fearing being sick, just drank tea?

Yeah, I didn't think you could think you would have a last time. And if you do, kudos, not many people do.

So for the mass majority of the population, hot tea is reserved for really occasions, old people and being sick, but for me, hot tea is a good drink to have to unwind, when it's cold outside, not when its hot outside but maybe for when I feel like it in my house and observing the hotness outside, or really just any occasion. Therefore, tea should be a present for my birthday (January 30th, just in case you wanted to know), a treat in a gift bag for Halloween, a thank you gift around thanksgiving and a Christmas present (only in December does Christmas present apply) (Just saying).

For the tea lovers out there, you'll understand it when I say I want loose leaf tea, not the ones in prepackaged bags. Maybe even the teas that are bundled up flowers that bloom in the hot water. There's more than just the Lipton that comes on the cute little bag. There's also the matter of the filtering cups, the ones that you put loose leaf tea in then you pour water and then filter the tea leaves out with the filter, those are good! Sometimes, people just use some ginger root as there tea.

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.
