Silent Night

Whenever I go home to Ohio, probably one of the biggest adjustments to have to get used to, is…the quiet. Falling asleep, there is nothing. Maybe a distant train. Maybe the ticking of a clock. But it is silent. Especially in the winter. When there’s a blanket of snow covering the ground, the silence canContinue reading Silent Night

Is Christianity Dead?

Well folks, another Christmas is in the books! Christmas 2K16 is officially behind us. The eggnog has been consumed. Gifts gifted. Food coma endured. And for those brave souls who took on a real tree this year, its pine needles are officially all over the floor and will be mysteriously appearing in random crevices for the nextContinue reading Is Christianity Dead?

VS Fashion Show: A Woman’s Perspective

Unpopular opinion alert: I will not be watching the Victoria’s Secret fashion show tonight. Every year, come mid December, in the midst of indulgent holiday consumption, Christmas cookies, eggnog, and holiday party food, society has decided that now would be the perfect time to showcase a parade of frightfully thin, Amazonian-physiqued women in lingerie.

Christmas Vs. NYC 

Doesn’t matter who I’ve talked to recently — Christian baby boomers, non-religious 20-somethings, an 8-year-old girl, my friends, the cute guy sitting behind me at church, the cashier at the grocery store — everyone’s in agreement about one thing: It doesn’t feel like Christmas. I don’t know if it’s the lack of snow, or allContinue reading Christmas Vs. NYC

Okay. Sometimes, all it takes is an outside perspective — or, a frank remark by a highly intelligent Wall Street #girlboss lawyer — toContinue reading Frank Conversations

The Truth About Sororities

Sooo…there’s something you don’t know about me. Something that….mayyy come as a bit of a surprise. Which, at this point…given all the highly invasive intel you have on my personal life, really, nothing can come as a shock anymore. AmIright or amIright? #NoRegrets I was the president of my sorority in college. Not like aContinue reading The Truth About Sororities

A Follow Up

Wow, thank you for the incredibly kind response to Monday’s post. I’ve got to be honest….I was not planning on publishing that post. I had a different one (that I actually shared on Patreon) all tee’d up and ready to go, but I made a game time decision to switch it up. Don’t know why…it just felt…right.Continue reading A Follow Up
