Dream Day

Today is Dream Day. It’s the 50th anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Dreams are so crazy! We all have them, we all try to achieve them, to live them out, and unfortunately sometimes we don’t quite make it—but we can learn along the way. As an almost grown-up I’ve learned a few […]

The 10 Best and Worst Moments From The MTV VMAs

Unless you live under a rock, you know that last night MTV hosted the 2013 Video Music Awards.  And boy did it get people talking.  As a pop culture fanatic, I watched intently (on the floor of my friend’s apartment because I don’t have MTV) as the night unfolded.  Here are my thoughts on the […]

The Ultimate Road Trip Soundtrack

I spent quite a bit of time in cars this summer, driving from Austin to Dallas, Dallas to LA, to beaches and theme parks and a weekend trip to Santa Barbara, and finally from LA back to Dallas, plus driving around LA every day between all that.  I’m sure a lot of you are heading […]

’90s Music Monday – That’s a Wrap

Just over two months ago I wrote a ‘90s Music Monday post about “One Week” by Barenaked Ladies where I talked about how I was leaving for California in one week. I know it’s cliché and annoying that I’m saying this, but it really feels like that was just yesterday, and I can’t believe my […]
