On 33

(or: 30 Under 30 is Bullshit) Three has always been my favorite number. I was born on the 3rd. I like odd numbers and asymmetry. There are three people in my immediate family.

Sorry, not sorry; the book is crazy interesting. I picked this one up a whim, hoping that it might have a ...

When I leave my hair to its own devices, the roots stick to my head while my lengths curl in some places and hang limply in others. ...

Beginnings are scary, man

Planning to start writing regularly, I signed up for this blog a year ago, yet I'm not writing this first post until today. I told myself a lot of things: I couldn't start until I had the theme worked out. I should probably learn how to use WordPress first. I needed a good header image ...
