Every one wants beautiful, luscious everything. Women get $800 hair extensions to make themselves feel more beautiful (not for your guys, sorry to break it to ya,) and I, being the broke post-gradder that I am, get free eyelash extensions. Yes, free. I willingly glued synthetic falsies to my eyes, but for a good cause. Laziness was my main cause, friendship and education was also my cause, and this blog was my cause. I needed more material so I thought let’s glue some stuff to my face.
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York!
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Alicia Keys got that shit right.
I was in the big apple all weekend, woke up with the glim of a Manhattan skyline, and everything was gonna be alright.
The first image that comes to mind when I think of my mom is walking into the kitchen with James Taylor turning on the record player … but I always thought that I’d see you again, one more time again… the sun is streaming through the windows glowing on her. She’s in overalls and a DIY tank top; her golden blonde hair is messily thrown up in a clip with strands falling out the sides and bottom of her neck. She’s one of the most free people I’ve ever met in my life and the way she lived has taught me much about myself.
Dishes were (almost) broken, things were thrown and bruises on knuckles formed. I got into a huge fight with my brother yesterday.
My brother is three years older than me, and I have been living with him for 22 years. Yes, I’m 22.
I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately, Mom. I guess the all-night dreams over the last few days have finally gotten to me. Most of the time I can shake things off, and tell myself that you’re better off wherever you are. I know that you’re with your parents and you’re with Dad, and that makes me feel better knowing that you have your great love beside you.
Nobody goes through life totally happy, as people in a thriving society, we always want more. We want more money, more excitement in our jobs, and more passion in our romances. We thrive to survive through the idea more will get us there. And sometimes more just is a mean to get by.
I graduated from college in the Fall, and I’m still searching for a job. It’s crazy to me that to be considered for an entry-level job you have to have 1-3 years experience, and unfortunately I didn’t have the option of working multiple unpaid internships during college because I had rent, car payments, insurance, loans, food, and gas to pay for as I’m sure a lot of people my age also had to do.
I’ve lived in New England my entire life, and I’ve played sports my entire life… meaning I’m a New England sports fan. I love the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins just like the rest of our spoiled rotten side of the country when it comes to professional sports.
I’ve been running away from a lot of things for a lot of years, and honestly it’s been one of the best things for me.
Cobble stone streets, not so cheap eats (the dollar ain’t got sh*t on the pound,) and English greets. And some other stuff.

So I’m sure everyone has heard, most people that never studied abroad regret it. I studied abroad for a summer (only six weeks) and I regret not doing an entire semester. But guess what, those six weeks still ruined me, so here’s six reasons why:
