My Relationship With Colton Underwood


Here's a fun thing to know about me: I didn't watch one single episode of The Bachelor this season. I ... just ... couldn't.

I just like could not be convinced that Colton was interested in women and I just couldn't go an entire season hearing about his virginity and I also didn't watch Becca's season, so like I didn't know Colton and all I knew about him was actually I knew a lot of things.

How Our Diets Have Evolved, and What This Means for You

This is a contributed post.

Food is such an important part of life in the modern world. For some people food is simply sustenance; a source of energy that can make a big difference to the energising you for the day ahead. For others, food is an experience to be savoured and enjoyed, and time should be taken to indulge in every facet of it.

The bottom line is, no matter your views on food, it is clear that it plays a phenomenal role in your life. This is the reason why it is so important to make sure you have the right diet, and that you understand the changing landscape of food in the modern world. Here are some of the ways our diets have changed, and what this means for you moving forward.

My Friends Think I'm A Carrie; My Boyfriend Thinks I'm A Charlotte



Wow, remember Sex And The City? That show was really good until you turn about 25 and then suddenly, you're like, wait, this show is v v bad?????

Carrie, a SEX columnist, is like comically closed-minded. Remember when she didn't believe you could be bisexual? And remember that time Samantha slept with a black guy and the entire episode was black jokes. And remember that time she didn't want to get on Berger's motorcycle bc of her ugly hairdo. WOW. What a horribly great show.

Anyway, one time my friends and me and my boyfriend got to discussing which character I am most like. Everyone is someone. There are only four types of women in the world and you must fit into one of them.

I Now Wake Up In The Middle of The Night To Pee


Being 28 years old means these things:

  1. You survived the 27 Club
  2. You are almost 30
  3. You are no longer in your early 20s
  4. You're the age Paul McCartney was when he went solo
  5. You get up in the middle of the night to pee

Being A Social Justice Warrior Is Hard


At the beginning of 2018, I was an ignorant but blissful fool, just trying to navigate the world as a social justice warrior.

It was 2018, merely one year ago, that I decided to give up fast fashion. Fashion that is fast. It wasn't even that I wanted more sustainable fashion or clothes that would last longer, I really just wanted to put my money where my mouth was. If I was going to be against sex trafficking, I was going to be against labor trafficking. Read: I didn't want a 6-year-old trafficked child to make my clothes in some factory in a third-world country.

So I gave it up. No more Forever 21 or H&M or Zara. These places are relatively cheap (kind of: when did Zara get so expensive), so I figured they would have a lower risk of their clothes being made in sweat shops.
