My Second Third-Year

Not everything goes as planned. Sometimes, you don’t just get knocked off course, you get knocked off and then the path you were on before, well, it gets doused in kerosene and lit up like a rock concert and then hit by a tsunami, which, while it puts out the flames, also destroys any markings … Continue reading

Cat vs. Dog

This video has been making this rounds lately, and it prompted me to share my own cat vs dog tale . . . My aunt brings her dog over for thanksgiving every year, and every other subsequent holiday, which is fine; it can be fun, even, seeing a cuddly, energetic dog for a change from my … Continue reading

Summer Skincare on the Cheap

Not to brag, but I have pretty great skin. Genetics have been good to me that way: good skin, crazy family, so I guess it balances out. Because of my perfect pores, I often have friends, and sometimes complete strangers, asking me what my secret is. Truthfully, there is no real “secret” to good skin. … Continue reading

What Not To Say On A Date

Honesty should always be saved for the 3rd date.   “I’m just recovering from a chest infection, I shouldn’t be contagious though!” “I sleep in old man pajamas, like loud, obnoxious ones. I’m sorry, what were you asking me?” “On this one episode of Phineas and Ferb, they delved into Candace’s mind and encountered her … Continue reading

Why I Should Be on Murdoch Mysteries

Why I should be on Murdoch Mysteries **Sidenote: If you don’t already watch Murdoch Mysteries, GO. GO WATCH IT NOW. Set in 1890s Toronto, it’s a crime drama, very Sherlock-esque for all you fangirls suffering withdrawals who haven’t been able to get into Elementary (it’s okay; I couldn’t either). So much fun. Canadians are quite … Continue reading

How to Grieve, katherinepedia-style

There are lots of things to grieve over in this world: famine, war, economic decline, poor fashion choices. More personally, I’m grieving over my GPA (RIP 3.5), my previous mile time, my overall health, my missing wallet, and the death of my grandpa. I thought other people might be grieving about things right now as … Continue reading

5 Things to do With Matcha

Ode to Matcha You make my heart sing out, tinting my world bright green. You are so quick and simple to make (no steeping required !), and with 137 times the amount of ECGC of normal green tea, and your antioxidant dense complex that makes spinach pale in comparison, not to mention your stress relieving … Continue reading

How to Not Look Hungover

Me and vodka have a love-hate relationship, of sorts. More accurately, actually, I just have an extremely low alcohol tolerance, that when coupled with my inability to process sugar correctly, leads to some rather unfortunate incidences. Some are rather hilarious, but most are just horrible hangovers the next morning, more than one of which has … Continue reading

Letter to a Lost Friend

Hey there. I know it’s been a while, and you’re probably going to disregard this before you even read this, if you ever read it, but that’s okay, because at least then I’ll have tried. We were best friends for what felt like forever, even though, in retrospect, it wasn’t very long. We bonded over … Continue reading
