Hey there, it's been a while. Although I've been posting a lot about pop culture, I thought it was time for something a little more personal. I was FaceTiming with my boyfriend and we started to talk about ex's. We are over two years together and don't really talk about past lovers but for some … Continue reading Should You Purge Your Ex?
I am currently mooching off of my older brother and living in a spare bedroom. It makes no sense to look for jobs on the mainland (AKA: the continental US) while living with my parents back in Hawaii. I have been on the hunt for an apartment closer to NYC where there's a better job … Continue reading A Review of Online Roommate Hunting
