my five favorites this week

This video was inspired by the Five Faves videos that Molls does for HelloGiggles. I’ve been too busy/stressed/excited lately to sit down and write anything for this blog, so I made a quick vlog instead. In case you don’t want to watch the video, my five faves this week are: The Milk Chocolate Coated Butter … Continue reading

adventures with allison

Last weekend I went to Philadelphia to visit my friend Allison, who I haven’t seen since we studied abroad together in the fall of 2008.

Benji Madden had pink hair and some sort of dog collar necklace, and I … Continue reading

It’s Saturday, and Caitlyn and I are sitting on bar stools looking at each other uncertainly, not sure how to go about “going out for a beer.” We’re trying our best not to get too drunk to drive her car back home, but the threat of mind-numbing boredom that comes with being sober in a … Continue reading
