Hair Dye Secrets!! No Pain, No Itching!!

Note: Although I mention a lot of specific brands, this is not sponsored content. I am just sharing what helped me! They say beauty is pain. But I have no tolerance for the scalp-burning kind of pain that hair dye has always meant. Not to mention the other problems that come with dyeing your hair…

The Bachelor Contestant Survey

In preparation for Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor premiering soon, I started reading the profiles of his Bachelorettes on ABC’s website. And as usual, it’s hugely entertaining. Some of the girls’ answers are laugh out loud funny. But really, would mine be any better? I fill out the biography questionnaire below for fun. Contestant…

Act III Woes

I just have to share… I am REALLY struggling to write right now. I know what I have to write, I want to write, but I have to write the climax at this point. I’ve reached my climax chapter. This is what I am worst at as a writer. I have a lot of strengths,…

Pirate Bikes

One of the reasons I chose to go to Southwestern University was the bikes. It’s something they’re known for- they call them the Pirate bikes. All over Southwestern’s beautiful, Hogwarts-y campus are bright yellow cruiser bikes. If you find one, you just get on it and ride to your next class or dorm. When I saw…

TV Show Round-Up

Fall is such a great time for TV. I remember when I was a kid, all of a sudden it would be summer- the perfect time to watch TV, right? I never went to camp, I didn’t have school- so I had tons of free time and a TV in my bedroom. And yet Sabrina The…
