Carrie Tells All

Have you ever wanted to interview your best friend? Well, I wanted to, so I did! 

Ok, this was fun. Carrie and I have known each other for over a year now and I knew she was the one I wanted to interview for this post. We met on Twitter in April of 2016, and met in person for the first time that October in Los Angeles. Carrie’s one of those people who will talk your ear off about nothing for hours on end, but you love her anyways. At least, that’s how it is with me. (She knows this.)

And that’s enough of me rambling… let’s just get to it.   Continue reading “Carrie Tells All”

Simon Says

My best friend from home is taking me camping.

If you know me, you’re probably laughing out loud right now at the fact that Jordyn Rowland is willingly going to spend more than 2 hours in the woods with no cell service… I’m trying not to think about that part.

But yes, camping.

Simon and I have gotten into some very interesting situations together over the years and he’s been bugging me for months about him not being featured on the blog so I thought now would be a good time…

…in case I get eaten by a bear or something.  Continue reading “Simon Says”

You’ve Got a Friend

The other day, I was sitting by the pool reading Eat, Pray, Love for the second time. The first time I read it was shortly after it came out, I was in middle school, and I hated it. But now, reading it at 19, I can see myself in some of the stories Liz tells, I could see myself in some of the situations she found herself in… hopefully not all of those situations, but I’d be okay with the Italian getaway parts.

“Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.” -Elizabeth Gilbert, (author of Eat, Pray, Love)

Cristina Yang: My Ride or Die

How did I become such good friends with a fictional character? How can I feel like I know this person? How can I feel like she knows me? She doesn’t even exist in real life. She’s just a character.

But here’s the thing: she’s not. She’s so much more than that. I consider her family. I consider her one of my best friends. I consider her one of my people. And here’s why: Continue reading “Cristina Yang: My Ride or Die”

Yes, the Internet did change my life

*No names were changed to protect identities. Sorry guys, that’s too confusing.

Do you ever go to bed thinking about your life and how you got to where you are? You look at one moment and realize that it was that instant, that exact second, that you became the person you are today? Yeah, I didn’t either until Becca told me I should write about it in a blog post.

I think my “moment” was about a year ago. It happened fast for me, it’s like I blinked and suddenly my whole life looked different. I grew up hearing horror stories of the Internet and the dreaded “Internet friend” turned serial killer ready to chop me up and put me in a freezer in some storage unit. We’ve all heard those stories. I’m assuming you’ve heard them anyways. For this post, just pretend you did even if you didn’t. Continue reading “Yes, the Internet did change my life”
