Love (and Breakups) in the Digital Age

This month will be one year since we broke up. Last October was a difficult month. October’s always seem to be busy for me, full of fall activities and homecomings, and last year was no different. But I usually had him at my side during the rush and ramble of autumn. Which is why when... Continue Reading →

Reminders

A year ago this week I was nestled on the edge of the Appalachian mountains just north of Stanardsville, VA in a luxury yurt trying to unplug from the world and single-handedly repair whatever had gone wrong in my relationship with my ex. I wrote in my journal every day that week, analyzing his moods... Continue Reading →

Is This My Love Story?

This Grey’s Anatomy tribute to Lexie and Mark popped up on my Facebook timeline this morning, and because I’m a sucker for tragic love stories, I watched it. From 2010 to 2015, I was a dedicated Grey’s Anatomy fan. I binged through the seasons that had already aired, had my favorite “ships,” and sobbed during... Continue Reading →

Long distance relationships suck. There’s a certain level of freedom that you can fool yourself into believing is kind of a cool benefit of not having your significant other around all the time. And then there’s the fact that when you do see each other, it’s just one giant extended date. Like even sitting on... Continue Reading →

Josh Sundquist is Getting Married! (And Other Thoughts on YouTuber Romance and “Ships”)

There have been a lot of YouTube relationship revelations this year—most of them having a very unhappy ending with all the break-ups and abuse accusations (both sexual and emotional). In fact, before 2014, I didn’t pay much attention to who the YouTubers I watched regularly dated. Usually I would notice simply because there would be... Continue Reading →

Five Reasons Being “Cool” is Overrated

  When you’re in middle school, you eat, breathe, and live “coolness.”  Most likely, you’re not part of the “cool crowd” because that’s reserved for only a select demographic, but you want to be in that group desperately. Maybe if you buy those latest tennis shoes or cut your hair like the most notorious celebrity,... Continue Reading →
