Dog-Calling

December 5, 2017

Any time a dog parades down the Main Green, looking so fluffy and happy and immediately wiping the concept of finals out of everyone’s minds, a strange sight emerges. Some people run up immediately, beginning to pet the dog. Others watch from a distance, staring, contorting their mouths into puppy dog lips and ‘awwww’-ing.

I only know three things about latest pop sensation Dua Lipa. One is that she’s freaking gorgeous in a way that makes me question whether I want to be her or on her. Two is that she should definitely try to get a lip gloss deal with Sephora or something with a name like that. And three, she has got to be a total badass who gives really solid advice.

A Boy Ghosted Me, So My Mom Became a Spy

November 28, 2017

If there are two things you need to know about me, they are 1) I’m very close with my mother and 2) I’m an avid user of the dating app Bumble. With this in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the second a Bumble prospect crumbles, my mom is there to comfort me and to whoop his ass. Continue Reading…
