30 Thoughts Before 30: #21: “Why Do I Even Still Have a Facebook?”

I made a Facebook account in 2008 and other than my first Gmail account, it’s one I have had the longest. Remember the days when you were forced to post a response after “is”? Surely, you’re parents don’t know, because they’re the latest to join the site and have kind of ruined it for those […]

30 Thoughts Before 30: #24: “I Don’t Mind ‘Friends’ Now”

Growing up, I was far too young to get into “Friends” during its original run on NBC. I was also reluctant to give it a chance during reruns on cable. But I must admit, I have found myself watching the show on-and-off again with my weird work hours and having days off on weekdays. Also, […]

30 Thoughts Before 30: #29: “I Kind of Want a Dog”

I had two dogs growing up. My parents currently have two silver labs. My oldest sister has one, that will soon have a baby to contend with. Many people have expressed in their own way of saying that dogs are better than humans. I can’t think of a truer statement. In my neighborhood, it is […]
