The Art of Being a Pathetic Wedding Planner // Anna’s unconventional romance, pt. 2

Welcome back to the next installment of my sister's strange wedding story! If you haven't read Part 1, do so here. To summarize— Anna fell in love with a bearded dude and agreed to renounce her family's name in exchange for his. And I was not at all bitter. I will admit, I'd always imagined [...]

Pride, Prejudice, and Pandemic // Anna’s unconventional romance

Last year was weird. You saw the weirdness take shape in the form of germs and unflattering headgear and that time everyone was really enthusiastic about toilet paper, and all those insulting signs that assumed none of us knew the most basic principles of hygiene. I, on the other hand, came face to face with [...]

This is Not About Covid-19

This is Not About Covid-19

I think we’ve had enough of it plastered across every headline, conversation, text message, social media post, blog post, lamppost, fencepost, whipping post, and every other post in existence. Friends, I come bearing glad tidings of joy in these troubled times: Believe it or not, I am one of those rare people who actually knows [...]

A Cup of Randomness // kittens + campfires + sarcastic summers

My friends, I come as a herald of happy things and sad things, great joy and exponential tragedy. The happy thing is that kittens exist. The sad thing is that I don't have it in me to write a blog post. "Whoa, whoa, Sarah, it's already been two weeks. You're skipping AGAIN?!?!" ...make me feel [...]

Euphoria // michigan sunsets + kitten pictures + a small sampling of anna weirdness

Guys, I'm not gonna lie: Life is pretty great right now. I know, I know, I just spent five weeks agonizing over some silly graduation, and before that, flipping out over basic social interactions and the price of eggs. The world is morbid and dark and determined to be miserable, and as a cynical INTJ, [...]

An Entrance and an Exit // life + camp nano + another hiatus + other such paraphernalia

*casually slinks in* Did you miss me? (If not, please go away.) Yes, 'tis I, returned from the void of... everything. And boy howdy, do I have stories to tell! If you're not sitting on a stable, flat surface right now, I highly suggest reseating yourself. What follows is a long and intense summary of [...]

The Misery of Spring // a series of disturbed facial expressions

The Misery of Spring // a series of disturbed facial expressions

Hullo, minions! I was poking through some old drafts yesterday and came upon an aged, dusty post dated exactly one year ago today. Why I never posted it is beyond me, but after reading through it (and subsequently laughing my face off), I decided it would be quite appropriate for today. Enjoy the misery of [...]

Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear

Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear

My sister is in Peru. (Smooth, Sarah. Just jump right in, and maybe they won't notice that you skipped the intro after seventeen failed attempts to write one.) As of yesterday, my sister has been in Peru for a week, and she'll stay in Peru for another week yet. Laying concrete, or something equally monotonous. [...]
