Taller girls can find a pair of jeans that actually fits them length-wise and shirts that aren't too long on them. Me? I have to scavenge the petite section looking for a decent-looking pair of jeans … Continue reading Problems of Being Short
It's less than four months until I graduate college. Less. Than. Four. Months. There's a possibility that a part of my brain is still in denial that come May, I will actually be walking the stage and leaving the school I've been at for the past three years to enter the real world.

"How do we know you had Starbucks unless you took a picture of it?" And now you know I had Starbucks the other day.
If I Stay by Gayle Foreman My rating: 5 of 5 stars. I can honestly say that I probably would not have picked up this book if I hadn't seen the movie trailer earlier this past summer. I knew I had to read it first because that's how I prefer to do things; read it, then … Continue reading If I Stay [book review]

What is my life without a computer? I've been without my computer quite a few times. It is very hard for me to function doing everyday things without it.
