Out of the frying pan, into the fire: A life lessons listicle

A friend recently informed me that I’ve been living below the poverty line. Since blowing through my savings in a mere two-ish years on my own, I’ve had the nice, expensive Pursian rug pulled out from underneath me.

Nobody likes you when you’re 23, they think you’re the tits

You’ve seen me naked, you can say “hi”

College is an ex-lover

I’ve always been a “yes” person. I am that girl that agrees to brunch over Sam Adams Saturday night and, come Sunday morning, wholeheartedly hopes for a text saying it’s a no-go (or better yet, no text whatsoever). Maybe even a natural disaster. But I always say yes. I’ve done so for most of my […]
