wonder(ful) woman

I finally,  finally got a chance to watch Wonder Woman last night and I have some thoughts. Spoilers ahead, maybe. I’d be v. surprised if I’m not the last person on earth to see this movie. did anyone else tear up during the first big fight scene between the women and the Germans? just me? cool. the whole girl power/girl boss (i…

paying my civic dues

I have a running joke with my mom that I am a poor representation of an adult. I mean, I have a job (or two), I have credit cards that I pay the bills on once a month, I watch the news fairly regularly, I had to Google what ICYMI meant the other day, I can drive and I don’t have…

I think, since I haven’t really done one in a while, I’m going to fill you guys in with a Currently post. I know you’ve been absolutely dying to know what’s going on in my mundane life.

thoughts from a youtube addict

Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of making Youtube videos. By toying, I mean that I’ve thought about it, remembered that I hate how my voice sounds on camera, realized I’d have to edit the videos, and then ultimately decided against it. Added to that is the fact that I’m not a consistent blogger so I probably wouldn’t be…
