Return of the Mack

It's been a minute. And by a minute, I mean nearly two months. For that, I apologize—but the break wasn't for nothing. I needed to take some time to remember why I started blogging in the first place and rethink what I want to accomplish with these posts / how I can make the whole [...]

Run the World

About a month ago, I briefly touched on what I learned during my four years as a Delta Gamma. I still stand by that list, but I'd be remiss to talk about how I became who I am without mentioning Duchesne. I went to a small all-girls high school. It's weird how many people are surprised [...]

For You

I did some really bad math and realized approx. 12 people in our 30-person marketing department have April birthdays. Pretty cool month, if you ask me. Here's the thing about birthdays, though: Depending on how well you know a person, you might have to get them a gift. Some people are really, really good at [...]

Here Comes the Sun

Remember when I said I plan my posts way in advance? This one backfired big time. See, it was supposed to be about all of the fun things I've been able to do since spring sprung! With warm weather and sunny days and birds chirping so loudly you can't sleep in but that's okay because it's [...]

Addicted

To understand this topic, you have to know how I "plan" my posts. I try to have my topics laid out at least three weeks in advance. So I crack open my Erin Condren to take a look at what's planned for those days—concerts, road trips, an online order due for delivery. You get it. It takes [...]

Girls, Girls, Girls

Before I get in so deep you start to question my true feelings for this godawful franchise, please know: I hate The Bachelor with the fire of a thousand suns. That fact alone prevented me from watching any second of the show for years. I'd go to extreme lengths to avoid ABC every Monday night, January through March [...]

I Pray

DON'T WORRY. I'm not here to stand on a pedestal and talk down to you non-believers about your one-way ticket to hell and the many other perils that await, should you choose to turn away from God. I am the last person who would ever be in a position to do that. Instead, I just wanna [...]

Step Out

First thing's first: If you ever just wanna feel awesome, sit back and hit play on José González. Ehh, scratch that. First, you definitely need to watch "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". Then indulge in José. Both are so underrated it's borderline criminal. As for the actual purpose of this Monday eve's installment, I am very much outside [...]

Unwritten

Spoiler alert: I love to read. I've always loved reading. Even when I couldn't read, I was fully convinced reading was my jam. (Dr. Seuss is not difficult to memorize.) But it wasn't until fifth grade that I reached peak nerd by participating in Battle of the Books. In a nutshell: Borders (R.I.P.) put together a [...]
