The Soapbox: Some Friendly Advice For That 22-Year-Old Girl Who Wishes She Was Poorer

Some thoughts for Taylor Cotter (the 22-year-old girl who wrote about wishing she could be poorer on the Huffington Post): Right now things kinda suck. I know.

Girl Talk: The Girls In The Clique (And How I Accidentally Flashed Them)

I didn’t know girls still did cliques at this age. I mean, I guess I could’ve figured it out, but I didn’t really give it much thought. I was homeschooled, so I missed a lot of that stuff, which I’ve always felt lucky for. But no one can miss all of it. It takes about…

Girl Talk: The Things That Freak Me Out When I Think About Myself In A Bikini

I don’t want to write about bikinis. I want to write about the amazing blue cheese dressing I made with buttermilk! (For some reason, I think buttermilk is the coolest thing ever.)
