The Next Great Generation →
This is a blog for Millennials, by Millennials. It’s smart, topical, and entertaining.
I just want to talk for a minute about the new app for Facebook that notifies you when your crush changes his status from taken to single. Do you mean to tell me there are people out in the world who would start wall posting/FB chatting/photo tagging/lol’ing at this individual regularly once the status reads “Alone in this world”? Absolutely. Can you imagine being the...
The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the...– Monica Baldwin Why I love morning so much.
Where have the good men gone? →
This is yet another article about 20-somethings and their inability to get their lives together - by WSJ. But this time, it’s only the guys they attack. Women our age are more successful and more educated than our male peers, which, according to this author, means young men are a bunch of useless pigs. Here are a few things I’m sick of: 1) Older generations being absolutely mystified...
Figure out who you are. Then do it on purpose.– Dolly Parton
I ate a piece of your ham when I was drunk on Saturday.– My roommate, in an embarrassed, rushed admission of guilt. (Still laughing.)
Paul Haggis vs. the Church of Scientology →
This is a REALLY long read in The New Yorker. Paul Haggis (in case you didn’t know) is a famous screenwriter and director who resigned from the church. If you’re not fascinated/horrified by the throes of scientology, this probably won’t be your cup of tea. BUT I read it in parts over a couple days and was glad I did. Scientology is effed up. And Tom Cruise wasn’t painted...
Last night’s episode of Glee was titled “Blame it on the Alcohol”. It reminded me how much fun getting drunk can be. I’ve been all work and no play since January 4th. But I suddenly have the urge to paint the town. (Inconvenient on a Wednesday.) Come find me on Saturday.

I plan on beginning to tackle this list once I finish my portfolio and secure a job.
The following is a trending topic on Twitter right now: #thatswhyyourmyex Is it because the person left an apostrophe and an ‘e’ floating on a lonely island somewhere? Here are some actual tweets from it: When I told you call me daddy you wanted to act stank. YOUR SWAGGER ISN’T RIGHT you kept trynna get my ass pregnant You told me that you didnt believe in outer space...
2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal →
I read this article in Time the other day. It’s long, but worth it. And it freaked me the eff out. Holy shiz. I’d love to get all 3 of my followers thoughts on it.
Copying Cougar Town
Under my blog title, it leaves space for ‘Your Awesome Tagline’ here. For those who make the awesome life decision to watch Cougar Town every Wednesday eve (seriously, it’s about to pass Modern Family in the order of shows I like), you know the title above the opening credits changes every episode. While I cannot pretend to be THAT ambitious with my tagline, I have decided it,...
I'm trying to respond to your "In and Out" post
The response I’d like to make is: That’s what she said.
In and out
That’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make today. How much time and effort should be spent on intake, on inbound messages, on absorbing data… and how much time and effort should be invested in output, in creating something new. There used to be a significant limit on available intake. Once you read all the books in the college library on your topic, it was time...
Dial it down
Guys, listen. I know I’m a little intense when it comes to work ethic. So if my quotes are ever too hardcore, I recommend putting a “kind of” and/or a “food baby” somewhere in the quote. For example, “If there’s something your food baby wants, you’ve kind of got to speak up.”
If there’s something you want, you’ve got to speak up.– Barb Stanny again

Too hilarious. #5 is my favorite.
It is no secret amongst my friends: I HATE the lottery. H-A-T-E it. Could there be a dumber way to spend your money? You are literally telling the 7-11 cashier/slushie machine operator that in exchange for two perfectly good dollars, you would like a tiny piece of paper that you can throw in the garbage upon leaving. My favorite protest is, “Well, someone has to win.” Well, if...

This is well worth five minutes of your day. Promise.
I had to make a fake movie trailer during video class tonight. This is the result.
It’s unreasonable to get out of bed on a snow day, when school has been cancelled, and turn the downtime into six hours of work on an extra credit physics lab. It’s unreasonable to launch a technology product that jumps the development curve by nine months, bringing the next generation out much earlier than more reasonable competitors. It’s unreasonable for a trucking company...

If you’re looking for fashion insight, you should head over to the tumblr of girlchasingthewind. I, on the other hand, am readily available for mocking fashion of any sort. The Beekeeping Hat 2.0 is making big waves. I will be creating a DIY version by taping a paper towel to my face and then cutting snowflake-like holes in it. Who knows, I may even make a Thanksgiving version by tracing my...
Long-distance relationships are stupid.
I can speak with some authority on this because I’ve been in two. Both times sucked. Listen, I’m not saying no one can pull it off. At least 63% of the world population are better people than I am (and I would make that number higher, but with all the serial killers and politicians, it really makes my stock go up). I just think life is too short to solely rely on phone sex to get the...
I don’t even like to sleep. I feel as if there’s too much to do.– - James Franco (Embarrassed to be quoting him, but I 100% agree.)
Tumblr has been stazzing me so far by removing punctuation from some of my posts. You should just assume when something is awry that it wasn’t a typo on my part. You know how I feel about grammar. __________________________________ stazz (v.): to mess with someone or something; origin: “steph + jazz” hybrid that resulted from us tricking enough people that a word needed to be...
It’s being a cottonheadedniggymuggins.– Well, this went from cute to racist in a matter of moments. (via thegreensandyellowsofhappiness) It’s important to note the racism was unintentional on my part.

I write to know what I’m thinking.– - Unknown This is SO TRUE for me.
I guess I tumbl(e?) now. It’d be a lot easier to come up with inspirational things to say if I wasn’t hungover and trying to prevent my stomach from falling out my uterus. Let’s hope this blog is more consistent than my sex life. Go Domino’s or go home.
