Making Room: Relationships of the (formerly) chronically single

For the past 9 months, I’ve had the great fortune of experiencing a wealth of love and travel but have had no idea how to translate it onto digital paper without sounding full of myself. And admittedly, unless I’m talking to my friend Sukanya who is really really good at asking specific juicy questions, I’ve been pretty mum about it in real life as well. Because honestly, do people really wanna...

For The First Time In A Long Time

It’s been nearly a year since I’ve published a piece on this blog and honestly, I’m getting hot flashes of anxiety as I type out this first sentence. I feel like a fallen child star clawing her way back to relevancy, praying that you’ll take me back. It’s my first time in a long time, so remember, please be gentle. My friends and I ventured off to France and Spain for 2 weeks this month, hoping...

Nesting, A Tale of Betrayal

My roomies and I were doing seemingly typical Thursday night things – rating engagement rings on the Tiffany website, discussing the pros and cons of raising a child on the east coast vs. the west coast (I’d want a kid with Hollywood charisma but an Ivy League education), comparing the effectiveness of Oxiclean to a trusty storebrand detergent – when it occurred to me. We are nesting. In a...

A Belated Blog’versary!

A year ago, I started this blog as my 2012 resolution to simply write more. I started writing at a young age and it soon became my primary outlet for expression. It’s true what they say about middle children – we are creepily quiet and should be kept at arm’s length. We can be found befriending house plants, peering out behind pillars, being left behind at the airport while our families board...

That Awkward Moment When…

The Perks of Being Reckless

The Perks of Being Reckless

“I want to be edgy. I write this as I lounge around in my pharmacy school sweatpants while listening to the Taylor Swift station on Pandora and nibbling on alfalfa sprouts. I have come to a realization worthy of a quarter-life crisis that the only edge I have is straight edge…”

Indulge Shamelessly

Indulge Shamelessly

I’m sorry I’ve abandoned you guys but I am now a bi-weekly columnist for my college newspaper, The Daily Targum. My column, “Young and Restless” runs every other Tuesday. I’ll be posting my articles up here for ya’ll to read. “Indulge Shamelessly” was my first column which ran two weeks ago. Ready, set, read!

Party Like It’s 1991

I am officially a twenty-something. While most people have their first alcoholic beverage in their teens, I didn’t have one until just three weeks ago at the stroke of midnight on my 21st birthday, and even then I weaned into it with a Mike’s Hard Lemonade. When you tell people that you don’t drink, they often go through a series of reactions that I like to parallel with the 5 stages of grieving...

Would You Still Love Me In The Morning?

Okay so it’s been a couple of posts now and I feel like ya’ll are getting a nice idea of who I am, what irks me, yaddayaddayadda. However, I want ya’ll to know me, know me before we take this relationship to the next level. You know that guy who professes his love for you after 1 week and you’re like, hol’ up you haven’t seen me at my worst, you haven’t seen me when I have just woken up with...
