WARNING: EXTREME SARCASM AHEAD. Not for the faint of heart. (The absolute irony of explaining depression using gifs delights me. The juxtaposition is almost cold, isn’t it? Belittling the explanation of feelings with a pop culture reference. So postmodern. I love it.) The past few months have been some of the worst I have ever […]Read More What NOT to say to a Depressed Person, as told by gifs
As part of my “Week of Online Dating” theme, unlike my hard-hitting expose coming later on this week (it’s, like, totally real journalism), here’s 5 reasons why I actually HATE online dating. Full disclosure: at this time in my life, I would never go on a date with someone off OkCupid or Eharmony, et al […]Read More 5 Reasons Why NOT to Online Date, as told by gifs
Today’s TMI Saturday seems to go in one of two directions: aesthetic design or evocative reads. (And of course, lots of BuzzFeed.) Hope you enjoy them as much as I did this week! Cool Design Buzzfeed says it best: these bookstore ads “capture the magic of reading”. They’re enchanting. These awesome film & TV poster inspired […]Read More Best Links of the Week: Saturday Edition
When I graduated (a mere 75 days ago, but who’s counting?), I honestly didn’t think finding a job would take such a long time. I imagined that like the magical boomerang, I’d just have to send out my resume and maybe an application once, and then BAM. Something would fly right into my lap on […]Read More Interviewing for a Job, as told by gifs.
Today I’m 22. Twenty-two! I’m totaaaaally ready–I feel like I’ve outgrown 21. There’s been SO many new experiences crammed into the past 365 years! I’m really lucky. Birthdays are all about autocracies. It’s an amazing process. 364 days out of the year you strive for attention (the problems of being in a big family, sigh) […]Read More Birthdays, as told by gifs
Dante’s Inferno speaks merely of nine circles of hell, but because Dante was a guy (who, yeah, also lived during the 14th century), I think he missed out on a HORRIBLE, awful, miserable 10th circle: summer swimsuit season. Oh yes. Welcome to the torture chamber–known commonly as the dressing rooms of any major department store. Here’s […]Read More Swimsuit Shopping, as told by gifs
First, I should explain: “physical touch” is NOT my love language. I’ve probably only had like 28 hugs in my entire life that have been not awkward (to me). I mean, I’m no hug floozy (oh, don’t act like you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about…) so (which inevitably leads to my friends taking advantage […]Read More Hugs Are Weird, as told by gifs.
So far in post-grad life, I’ve been trying to figure out just exactly where my entire day goes…turns out, it’s the Internet. (I mean, are you really surprised?) In the spirit of taking a break from constantly looking up cool articles, today’s TMI Thursday Friday is thusly devoted to literature. My parents gave me an […]Read More TMI Friday? (Just roll with it): Summer Reading
My life (and/or blog title) is a becoming a lie. I can feel myself slowly turning into more of an…introvert. Don’t get me wrong–some of my best friends are introverts! But I can’t very well have a blog called The Accidental EXTROVERT and also take great joy in canceling plans and pretending to be a […]Read More Going Out versus Staying In/Netflix, as told by gifs
Today I spent the afternoon in Huntsville, Alabama! Very random, very my family. During my 7 years of homeschooling, we went on the MOST obscure, arbitrary field trips in the world–all with good intentions, albeit a few without actual entertainment. So, as all 6 of us sojourned to the Huntsville Space Center, it was like […]Read More TMI Thursday: Best of the Week & 100th post!
