As You Wish

If you read my post on my life as the bachelorette, maybe you saw this coming. I joked when I wrote it, but never in a million years thought it would actually happen. That I’d fall for a roommate and he’d fall for me and we’d live happily ever after in this three month harvest…

I Was Exclusive with Myself for Two Years and Regret Nothing

I don’t know about you but some of my best friends are serial daters. Like just broke up with the love of their life, will start seeing someone a few weeks later kind of daters. The kind that go on a first date every night of the week, even if they could use a little…

Why Winemaking Matters

The only reason I’m writing this (because really, who needs another reason to love wine) is because of this scene from Sideways: a movie ridiculed for its average acting and snail-pace story line. While the movie may have been rough, this passage Virginia Madsen delivers really spoke to me. But I didn’t want to just steal her…

Somewhere between Insanity and a Daydream: Funemployment Begins

Thanks to the wonderful life milestone that is graduation, I’ve more or less been officially funemployed for two weeks now. In that time here’s what I’ve learned: 1. Funemployment’s not all it’s cracked up to be. When all your friends around you either have jobs already or are still in school, the world can be a…

Legalize It: 18+ Drinking with a License

For years now, I have been trying to understand the justification behind preventing American adults who can legally support themselves, make decisions about their own lives and even serve the country, from drinking. And today I finally feel as though I can say it—after all the hours of research projects, presentations on the subject, interviews,…

The Best Compliment

Last night, I was catching up with someone who I only vaguely remembered meeting at a party two years before, when suddenly he stopped, and said, “You’ve changed a lot since the last time I saw you.” I could see the recalculating interest on his face and for a moment, could see myself from his…

The Laws of Attraction

The amount of people in the past few weeks who have asked me to turn what I’ve learned in my current Sex, Relationships and Communication class with Daniel Degooyer into something they can study is amazing. Why is it we’re so fascinated with how relationships work? How to effectively flirt and draw in those around…

20 Things I’ve Learned in 20 Years

Today’s my 20th birthday and I don’t even know how that happened. It’s as though I blinked in August and now everyone and everything seems to believe it’s December and I’m just in shock. Not unhappy or in denial, just generally stunned. Does time pass faster as you get older, or just busier? Either way,…

A Butterfly and Me

When asked what kind of animal I’d be, I usually respond in one of three ways: a dog, an eagle or a butterfly. Now the dog and eagle explanations are simple. A dog because of how much simple things make me happy and my loyalty to those I love. An eagle because of my wanderlust…
