pros and cons of small children

pros: They’re adorable. I have half a mind to upload the video I took today of my almost-three year old niece repeatedly shouting “I like boat rides!” in public. But I won’t. Just trust me that it’s really cute, okay? They think you’re great. You’re really old compared to a toddler, and as such, most(…)

it turns out i’m not dateable

Oops! In fact, I am totally dateless. Here, look, there’s proof (thanks to website-of-horrors, rudateable.com, founded by motivational speaker and noted misogynist Justin Lookadoo): The awkward thing is, I think I answered these questions pretty accurately.

Pros: Learning is cool! I’m only being a little bit sarcastic. I’ve been taking summer classes since the eighth grade.

Snapchat allows you to be goofy without repercussions. If most social media has college(…)

pros and cons of ifbcon

So you wanna be a blogger. You’ve come up with a name, realized it’s taken (who knew I wasn’t the first person to try ‘Cupcakes and Cashmere’?), come up with another name, registered a domain, started writing on tumblr, changed your mind, and now you’re happily set up on wordpress or something. Maybe you want(…)
