What I’ve Learned So Far

Hi there long-neglected follower darlings! I spent Wednesday night through Saturday night in Baltimore with the manfriend, his sister, and her boyfriend.  It was probably the most insane vacation I've ever taken, even considering the fact that we went to bed during the PM hours almost every night.  We're super cool like that.  But seriously, I think I drank my weight in beer, ate my weight in brick oven pizza, and walked about 30 miles.  I'm going to write a full post - including some photos - later this week! It's been about a week since we began our official move-in, so ...

Living and Loving Arrangements

Darlings, the last week has been absolutely 100% different from what I anticipated. Until last Thursday, I was planning to move into my apartment in one of the nice, safe, but boring neighborhoods of Pittsburgh.  I would be moving at the end of the month, living with two guys I didn't know (but who seemed very sweet from our brief meeting!) and I would hope to save enough money that in case something happened after I graduated and I lost my job at Adam & Eve, I could still pay my bills.  And honestly, it was giving me a stomach ulcer. Obviously, ...

Why I Don’t Go to Shows

Most people think it's just because I'm grumpy and like to be able to sit down whenever I please.  And while they are correct, there is a much more reasonable explanation: I accidentally Carrie Bradshawed my way through Pittsburgh, so large gatherings of 20-something hipsters aren't a safe place for me. Last night, Steve took me to see the Dirty Projectors.  They were fantastic, and I'd actually never heard of them before because my boyfriend is way more of a hipster than I am.  As a quick little interlude about the band, I will tell you that the female vocalist is ...

I Dunno, Cupid…

Hi pretties! It's been a very long time since I posted about this, but it's exciting so I feel like broaching it again: online dating.  I don't think I've ever addressed here, properly, why I like it and why I don't think it's just for crazy cat ladies. I've actually met some nice, normal guys online.  Specifically, on OKCupid.  It's free, and there are a lot of students - both undergrad and graduate - in my area.  Perfect, really, for casually dating or looking for something more serious.  I swear!  It's true!  Guys who have respected me, had life goals, and carried on ...

Happy Manday

Yes.  Manday.  I promise, this isn't going to degrade into Cosmo bullshit about 100 Outrageous Ways to Please Your Man, How to Handle Testicles, or 50 of Your Sexiest Sex Qs Answered!  I don't play that game. No, no.  I'm going to talk about your man, because here's a secret: I live with him. The facts:  I live with two dudes.  Both are 21, both are college seniors, both are economics majors, but they're two very different dudes with very different relationship styles so I am pretty sure I basically know your boyfriend.  Because he, too, is a dude.  So every week, ...
