Sunday confessions, vol. 2

Sunday confessions, vol. 2

I hate when people try to one-up you with politeness.┬áSpecifically in regard to driving–there’s a three way stop at the entrance to my apartment complex, and I hate when I face off with another car and I wave them along because they were there first, but they just wave right back at me for me … Continue reading

Oh My God: on guilty pleasures

Oh My God: on guilty pleasures

Be still my seventh grade heart. What in the fuck are the Madden Brothers even doing? This video is so unbelievably perplexing to me–I’m having a hard time grasping the fact that Joel and Benji Madden still exist in the public eye, and I had never heard of Machine Gun Kelly until I saw this … Continue reading

Dressed to Chill in 2011

Dressed to Chill in 2011

It’s weird that I’ve been writing this blog for a year and a half now. I’d like to think I’ve come a long way since my first self-deprecating post in August of 2010, but that may or may not be the truth. If nothing else, the tone of my writing has changed significantly because I’m … Continue reading

But I’m not ashamed, because what Harry Potter has meant to me is something completely unique and awesome, something that could never be ruined for me by someone … Continue reading

fair food and more fast times in licking county

The Fourth of July weekend is kind of a big deal in my town because it’s when the Granville Street Fair occurs. For anyone who doesn’t know, “street fairs” and various other types of small summer festivals are common in the many tiny towns that make up Licking County and other similarly podunk counties in … Continue reading

what's my age again?

I finally got around to cleaning out all of the old CD cases that have been living on the top shelf of my closet for the past seven years. I had been putting it off forever because, obviously, cleaning out my closet is always a daunting task, but dealing with the empty CD cases specifically … Continue reading

one foot in and one foot back

About once a month for the past twelve months since I graduated from college, I’ve ventured back to the not-that-lovely city of Springfield, Ohio to visit my friends who are still students at Wittenberg. I go to my favorite bar, get gratuitously drunk, make cynical comments about “the real world,” impart slurry, sage-like advice about … Continue reading
