A "Triple Threat" to Society

Yesterday, not unlike many other days, Lindsay Lohan had a court date. Why do I know this? Because today Yahoo told me, as did Fox, the Huffington Post, ABC, CBS, etc. I had also been previously informed of it by E! News. Although I don't want to be interested in this "breaking news"; as a pop-culture fan, I feel slightly invested in the story of the steady decline of LiLo. Whats Going On: Lohan is currently facing charges of assault…

Sh*t guys like.

I recently read a blog on Barstool entitled "The Definitive List of Weird Shit Girls Like". Yes, I love Buffalo chicken dip, mimosas, and seltzer water. However, "KFC" writes as if men DON'T get excited for "weird shit" too, so I guess I will. Weird Shit Guys Like: Fixing Things- Guys absolutely LOVE to fix shit, and I will never entirely understand why. To men, fixing the car, the sink, or the lawnmower is the single most manly thing you…

ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas

Thanksgiving has past and its officially Christmas season (not "holiday season"; Christmas season)!!!!!!!!! The season of traditions! Buying your dad last minute presents because you avoid it until the very last minute, eating all your advent calender candy in one day, and minor/short-lived excitement over the very over-rated ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas. The concept of ALL Christmas movies ALL the time for an ENTIRE month is nothing short of awesome, I really want to be excited about it!…

My views on mainstream music

Mainstream music is mainstream because its relatively generic, yet catchy and enjoyable for many. Music becomes "mainstream" because enough people enjoy listening to it. Therefore, it is unreasonable for me to say it "sucks" or that I hate it because I don't. While the lyrics and style are often repetitive how often does someone truly game-changing come around? Not often. Lady GaGa is a good example but since then others have come along very similar to her. Her music is…

A Book I Love

  Prep.   I was one, that's why I bought the book that had a hot pink and green ribbon belt on the cover. I bought the book because it appealed to my identity. "You can't judge a book by its cover", what a cliché quote, but I did just that.       I believe I was thirteen when I read Prep for the first time. I had seen the novel in hardcover many times in the Hanover Mall Borders…

“Suffolk Freshman’s guide to welcome week”

Heres the most recent article i've written for Her-Campus. A Suffolk University freshman's guide to "welcome week". This article was written mainly for girls about to attend Suffolk but is relatable to any college girl. Freshman’s Guide to The First Week of School! This is not a tropical resort. Although you have just met these people and it feels like vacation because you’re having so much fun and partying so much you will have to see everyone EVERYDAY FOR A…

Drunkorexic

"“Drunkorexia” is a slang term for a condition in young women who choose to eat less during the day so they can “party hearty” and binge-drink without gaining weight.... Clinicians at the Eating Disorders Center of Denver (EDC-D) noted an increase in eating disorder patients with binge-drinking problems. Of all the college-aged females enrolled in the program, 75% met the criteria for alcohol abuse." I've been at Suffolk for about 2 months now and I cannot believe the number of girls…
