Sending My Stories in For Publication

Constructive Criticism – who doesn’t love it? Or, in my case, hate it. Recently, someone very close to me (*cough cough* my best friend) told me I should start publishing my short stories. Hearing her say this, I immediately tuned out and went about my day (watching Netflix and eating Oreos). After she realized I […]

The most important detail to mention is that chocolate is half-off the day after Valentine’s Day. I repeat:  CHOCOLATE IS HALF-OFF. Why more people do not advertise this or talk about it is astounding. Forget getting me […]

An Open Letter to My Heroes at Gannon

First, I have to mention that even though I do not say it often, I love you guys! You make my day so much brighter and weirder. And most importantly, you make Gannon home. From making tea to screeching velociraptor noises at each other from across the room, I would never change us for the […]
