WHY is the attention on the TV and NOT on me?!

22 Thoughts I Have About The Super Bowl Being On My Birthday

Every year, my birthday tragically falls on or around Super Bowl Sunday, and this year is no different. So long to the thoughts of having an actual birthday party on my actual birthday, instead I get to attend my family's annual Super Bowl bash where all of the attention will be on the TV screen or on the food- but not me.

So in honor of my 22nd birthday, here are 22 thoughts I have about the Super Bowl- Every. Single. Year.

1. WHY is the attention on the TV and NOT on me?!


2. Do I really have to get a birthday cake with the Super Bowl teams on it?

3. I can't believe all of the balloons at Publix are football-shaped.

4. Is there anything else to eat here besides chicken wings?


5. I hope my presents aren't all in the shape of footballs.

6. How many more times will I hear the words "Touch down?"

7. Pay attention to ME! Hello!

8. Next year, my birthday dinner isn't going to be at a sports bar.

9. Okay, actually, halftime isn't that bad. I have [insert artist here] serenading me.


10. Even the napkins at my aunt's house have football teams on them!

11. What about the Happy Birthday plates??

12. Well, at least Grandma is talking to me.

13. Oh the Patriots scored again, what a great gift.

14. I'm so thankful for Julian Edelman.


15. Is the game over yet? Oh it's only the third quarter.

16. When is my family going to sing happy birthday to me?

17. Are they going to sing happy birthday to me, or did they forget?

18. At least my aunt's cats can keep me company (ah-choo!) Oh yeah, I'm allergic.


19. Too bad I don't even like beer.

20. Fourth quarter, yes! It's almost time to pay attention to ME again!

21. I need to go to the gym after all of that junk food.

22. I can't wait to celebrate my birthday the exact same way next year (with the Patriots winning).

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.
