What to Do When You Get the Dream Job

    I came to a really terrifying realization the other day. I’m twenty two years old and the next major milestone in my life will be my wedding. Pretty sure I’m still internally screaming as I type this. A few weeks ago, a day before school started, I got hired to teach fifth grade science in Newport. It was exactly what I wanted and exactly what I’d worked so hard for. Teaching has consumed the good majority of my time these past four weeks and I’m amazed at how exhausted, invested, and fulfilled I feel. There’s something unimaginable about…

Please, Don’t Ask Me Again

  “Sometimes what we want doesn’t happen when or how we want it to. But that doesn’t mean the answer is “no” it just means the answer is “not now.” – Sarah Centrella   No matter how you ask it, it’s all the same question. What have you been up to? What are your plans for the fall? How’s the job hunt going? Why aren’t you employed yet? It feels like, ever since May, the badgering has been insistent. Like the only thing anyone is allowed to ask a new graduate is whether they’ve lined up an opportunity in which…

This One’s For the Girls

  “Female friendships that work are relationships in which women help each other belong to themselves.” – Louise Bernikow   One Saturday night, a few weekends ago, I was sitting around a roaring fire with a group of friends. For a moment, everything went a little out of focus. I didn’t register what was happening, or notice the brief sadness filling my chest, but I still sank a little deeper. Then, a small hand reached out and took mine. It squeezed gently, bringing me back. We didn’t need to look at each other, didn’t need to acknowledge anything. It was…

To Be Or Not To Be.. Single

  “As a self described idealist, I never consider myself as single. I like to say that I’m in between romances at the moment.” – Carl Henegan   You hear it in bar stool stories and coffee shop murmurs, quips of passing conversations on your walk home. Young women talk with heads tucked together and hands fidgeting. Eventually, they reach a conclusion: sometimes, being single simply sucks.   We live in the age of social media, where everyone shares what they had for breakfast, how their kids did on a spelling test, and my personal favorite, the past, present, and…

Day to Day

Careful Newport, Your Privilege is Showing

  “Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act.” – Albert Einstein   It’s tourist season in Newport again. Mopeds and bicycles, bucket hats and hawaiian shirts flood the roads. Families stroll down Brick Market Place as couples toast with champagne, out on the lawn at Castle Hill. The locals gripe, serving at restaurants and organizing store fronts by day, sneaking off to drown their complaints at their favorite dive bars by night. Cars trail slowly on Ocean Drive while Bellevue Avenue hosts sidewalks full of crowds. Everyone’s on vacation, ready to take full advantage of…

Write Your Heart Out, Kid

  “Growing up is losing some illusions, in order to acquire others.” – Virginia Woolf   I’m not going to get into the nitty-gritty here, but rather, simply explain that lately I’ve been feeling the need to use this blog for something more. Those of you who know me in real life can confirm how easy it is for me to run my mouth when it comes to something I feel passionate about. I want to apply that passion to this creative outlet. I want to put genuine thought and relatable concepts into paragraphs and posts. Today’s modern young women…
