I’ve suffered from this my entire life. The desire to make anyone and everyone happy.

Voting in 2016

On this election eve, I felt the need to address something that I’ve been thinking about for almost a year now. We see celebrities, politicians, our peers all say “go vote,” “it’s your civic duty,” or “your opinion doesn’t matter if you don’t vote.” The reality is voting is your right and only that.

If you follow my blog, you know that we aren’t afraid to address topics that might rub people the wrong way (no pun intended). I’m a very open person and like to address things from fashion, politics, and today – the topic of porn. Ok WHAT? Why? What needs to be said about PORN? Isn’t that kinda self explanatory?

How To Be Excellent When Life Sucks

For an early twenty something like myself, my reality is somewhere between dreaming of the future and trying to pay tomorrows bills.

50 Things About Millennials That Make Corporate America Scared Out Of Their Mind

In 2013, Joel Stein deemed Millennials the “ME Generation.” The TIME contributor called Generation-Y selfish, egotistical and lazy. He also noted, however, that we may just be the generation that will save us all. Per usual, no one knows what to make of us. Our parents scorn us, then praise us. They lament over our technological dependency, then ask us to set up their iPads. They tell us we’re lazy, then ask us for a loan. Our generation is an…
