A Year of Thanks (and Giving) // A Poem

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! And welcome to the holiday season! This time of year is filled with so many wonderful memories for me, but as someone who suffers from depression, it's also a particularly hard time as I struggle to separate the happiness and nostalgia from the anxiety and the clouds. I tried to capture some... Continue Reading →

Adulting Ahead

If you haven’t already seen the slightly sleepy and delirious vlog I made with Alanna at William & Mary’s Homecoming discussing the peaks and valleys of post-college life, I highly recommend you do that now! Otherwise, I’m going to dive right into a few more thoughts on “Adulting” because even though I was SO TIRED... Continue Reading →

A Concert for Charlottesville

Two weeks ago, my friend Katherine called me on a lazy Sunday afternoon and asked what I would be doing the following Sunday. For once, I actually didn’t have much planned that weekend so I told her I was totally free, and she subsequently invited me to A Concert for Charlottesville hosted by The Dave... Continue Reading →

Immune Disorders and Why I Can’t Seem to Take a Sick Day

Let me tell you a little bit about immune disorders. If you didn’t know…they suck. (But I imagine you could guess that.)

Social media in 2017 has pretty much been making a... Continue Reading →

Home is Where Your Friends Are

The last year has involved a lot of change for me. A new job. A new city. Transitioning to being a “real adult” like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. I’ve spent a lot of my life hating myself and where I live and my life circumstances, not because they’re particularly horrific, but because they’ve... Continue Reading →

Why is Everyone So Angry?

Two weeks ago we discussed how toxic fandoms can become, especially in online discourse. And in writing that blog, I realized there was a much bigger issue at play that I also wanted to address: Why is everyone so angry? I feel like I’ve gotten trapped inadvertently in a global outrage cycle. For a while,... Continue Reading →

My Life: One Year Later

This time last year I opened Gmail to find a truly mind blowing arrival. An email from the YouTube staff letting me know that I had been chosen for YouTube NextUp NY’s inaugural class. The email was sent on March 31st, and it basically had to say “This isn’t an early April Fool’s joke! You... Continue Reading →
