Worth 1000 Words #13: Ol’ Reliable

On the first day of college, I was nervously approaching my first ever class - Health and Wellness - wondering who I would sit with, if I'd make any friends, and why on earth said class needed to be so freakin' far away from the parking lot, when my backpack strap broke. Now, superstitious folk... Continue Reading →

Worth 1000 Words #12: Monochrome

Despite my complete lack of fashion sense, which is an affliction I have suffered from for the duration of my life, I watched Project Runway for a handful of seasons, binged my fair share of ANTM back in the day, and have seen enough episodes of What Not To Wear that I should genuinely know...

Worth 1000 Words #11: In the Bleak Midwinter

*I will only be making Friday posts for the month of December. Regular Monday and Friday posting will resume in January.* Now that December has blustered into my neck of the woods, bringing cold winds, the scent of pine, and absolutely ridiculous inflatable holiday decorations adorning the yards of my neighbors, I have a confession...

Worth 1000 Words #10: Reese

On a Wednesday night in 2007, I received a cryptic text message from my older sister while watching the latest episode of Lost. The message contained only one word. Meow. Some time later, I was dozing off on the couch when my sister returned home and deposited something furry onto my lap. I opened bleary... Continue Reading →

Worth 1000 Words #9: Snowtober 2011

Some of you, particularly those of you who reside in the northeastern United States, might remember the freak snowstorm of October 2011, which resulted in near state-wide power outages and general icy desolation in some areas.

Worth 1000 Words #8: Coffee

A cup of coffee can either save or ruin an entire day. I guess that also applies to tea or other similar beverages, but I dislike most tea that is not of the iced variety, so this post will strictly deal with coffee. For several folks all over the world, coffee is what sets the morning... Continue Reading →

Worth 1000 Words #7: Studying

Allow me to spin a cautionary tale about the importance of studying, and the evils of procrastination and putting off work. Throughout my academic career, from kindergarten to college, I was a decent student - in the sense that I got good grades and I generally behaved myself. On report cards, I never got below...

Worth 1000 Words #6: Leon

My first car was a navy blue '02 Subaru Legacy, purchased with 148,000 miles on it. I was 17 years old and absolutely terrified of driving on the highway (still am, for the record), but regardless, I was ready to (slowly) hit the road. And boy, I loved that car. I named him Leon, because all... Continue Reading →

Worth 1000 Words #5: Our Little Life

In the late spring of 2014, I got to visit every English major's dream locale; Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. I have actually been lucky enough to visit a few literature-based landmarks on my ventures across the pond, including the Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens (Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie is one of...
