“Productivity” in a pandemic

“Productivity” in a pandemic

My social media feeds are inundated with businesses promoting every possible way to be productive. Take an online gym class, you sloth! Learn a new language, only to recite the words back to your computer in a laughably bad attempt at an accent. Make food […]

I just did my makeup for the first time in a month

Here’s how it turned out: I chose some orange eyeshadow from (my holy grail) Urban Decay’s Naked Heat palette. Lately, I’ve been craving a sense of normalcy. I’m sure you all also have to some degree. It’s easy to feel like life is anything but […]

Why I Love the “Until Tomorrow” Challenge

Why I Love the “Until Tomorrow” Challenge

Taking ourselves less seriously is one of the best things we can do right now. This is evidenced by the day I got my braces on (don’t you love how the alternating pink wires perfectly complement my Hollister V-neck?)   The healing power of humor […]

Pi Phi Pride

Pi Phi Pride

The most embarrassing injury ever

The most embarrassing injury ever

  I wish I had a cooler story to explain why I’ve been wearing a splint on my middle finger these past few days, but here we go.  It was Sunday night, around 10 p.m. After 10 or 15 minutes of struggling, a can of […]
