First Day of Fall!

Fall has officially arrived! Alas, summer is over. Gone are the days of eternal daylight, warm weather, and the feeling of idleness. They've now been replaced by cooler temperatures, shorter days, and more responsibilities as we prepare for the winter. Whether or not we look forward to such days towards the end of the year, …

Life after France: Two Months Later (rant ahead)

Bonjour, folks. As of today, it has been two months since I left France. I'd been living abroad for the past four years, and I finally returned home to Los Angeles to be back with my family. It has been a bit weird since coming back, getting re-adjusted and all, but it's gotten a lot better …

SPILLING THE TEA: Why I Quit my Job after Three Weeks

Hello, there. As of this past Friday, I have officially quit my job after three weeks of being hired. Why's that? Long story short: I was involved in a MLM company.

I Used Two Dating Apps for a Day (and here’s what happened)

Valentine's Day is here, and I found it appropriate to write about my thoughts on dating and relationships through the example of today's ubiquitous dating apps. Hope you enjoy it! Growing up as a Millennial in the mid-to-late 2000's meant that I saw the shift from flip-phones to smartphones, along with the apps that came …

Why I Don’t Identify as a Feminist (as a woman)

Yup, that's true. Sounds like a scandal that might blow up-- after all, why would a cis-woman like myself refuse to fight for women's rights in the 21st century? Surely, she must not believe in giving a voice to women, let alone support "girl power," in general? That she finds the patriarchy justifiable, and that …
