Nicki Minaj Is Teaching Me Where My Lady Balls Are

This isn't who I am. How did I get so skittish that I flinch at the sound of my own voice? How did I lose sight of goals that were so clear to me just a few months ago? How did I let fear and anxiety run my shit? Well, that's a dark rhetorical rabbit hole that I'm really bored of falling in to. There's always one person I can turn to to boss me up: Nicki Minaj.

How To Succeed in Friendship Without Really Trying

Recently I started a theatre company with my six best friends. Sounds like a really great way to ruin a bunch of relationships, doesn't it? But here's the kicker. It's actually really working. We are by no means perfect and are still in the thick of figuring out a process that works best for us. These are the things that I've learned so far on this weird little journey.

I'm a Comedian Who Doesn't Smoke Weed

Happy 4/20, you guys! On this day of days I want to take the time to confess something. I write comedy and I don't smoke weed. I know, I'm sorry. It's really disappointing. That's probably one of my most frequently asked questions I get after people find out what I do. Here's why it doesn't work for me.

Sorry Ladies, Clothing-Optional Spas Make Me Awkward

I'm a feminist, but that doesn't mean want to see your bush. Let me explain. I spent my morning at a water spa in the city. An important part of this scenario is that bathing suits are optional. Great! Cool! I'm a modern lady! I've seen Dove commercials! Nakedness is no problem for me. EXCEPT THAT IT FOR SURE WAS!!!!!

Patio season took a toll on you, girl. Kudos on your sangria tolerance though, that took work! Let's take a little baby break, clear the system, save some dollars, walk home wearing shoes, etc. Plus, this gives you a very dramatic and lovely opportunity to ,at the stroke of midnight on Halloween, transform back into that famous little Drunkerella we all love so much!

I'm On An Emotional Rollercoaster With Lena Dunham

Dunham has changed the game on how young women can talk about their bodies, and their lives, and their problems. But my general reaction to this sentiment is UGH because we had to wait for someone to do that. I can be funny and popular now because the general public has a frame of reference for me. People can now qualify how funny or attractive I am based on another human being's life.

Thoughts on Adulthood From a Brand New Adult

As I creep ever closer to death and settle in to my old age (23 is the new 83!) I've made a couple of realizations about myself and how I'm gonna get out there and put my stamp on the world. So allow me to impart upon you my sage wisdom that I've accumulated in my whole, like, 16 months as a human adult lady.

This Podcast Taught Me Everything I Need To Know About Life

This is what happens when you realize you can't just smoke weed and masturbate for the rest of your life. That's maybe cruder terms than what I was actually doing (which was mostly Netflix and beer) but hearing someone say it woke me up. After spending most of my first out of school fall getting drunk on Wednesday days and dicking around I was just kinda sad. So I started a blog!

How I Learned to Relax and Embrace My Inner Basic Bitch

I'm in a love/hate relationship with Colour Me Rad. I totally appreciate the event. But it also brought out I side of me that I rarely like to indulge. It brought out my inner basic bitch. The last time I indulged in something so broadly stereotypical for a white 20-something woman I was on the floor at a Taylor Swift concert.

Secrets of a Reformed Girl Hater

I used to be one of those girls who said I didn't like girls. Now I'm really embarrassed. I am a reformed girl hater. I still have a ton of dude friends (whom I also love and am obsessed with and think the world of and enjoy the person I am when I am with!) but I learned how to be a good girlfriend.

How To Survive Theatre School

You will not be a normal person when you finish this. You may wake up from this in four years and be like "who is this person that I am now?" I'm always sort of on the verge of tears, I'm too busy to eat or shower, I can't not articulate every single word, I haven't worn real pants in years, I'm not as funny as I used to be, the list continues for literal days.
