It feels strange to think that in exactly one week I will be twenty-two. Huh. I’m officially in my Young Twenties™. Resolutions for JJ’s Twenty-Second Year Stop using credit card. In the end I only end up poorer when I try to pay off the whole balance. Continue putting away at least $500 a month […]

Surely something is wrong in the world when you feel old at twenty-one (I will resist the urge to start singing Tori Amos’ “Jackie’s Strength”). I am an Adult now, and it’s the weirdest feeling ever. The first indication was being on buying end of Girl Scout cookie season. When I was younger, my parents […]
Despite being poor, poor, poor (after checking my bank account this morning, I was aghast to find that I had $8.85 to last me until next Friday…stupid medical expenses!), it has been an amazing couple of days. Tuesday night I went out with The Kitchen Girls to karaoke at Sing Sing on St. Mark’s Place. […]
Just a perfect day, Problems all left alone, Weekenders on our own. It’s such fun. Just a perfect day, You made me forget myself. I thought I was someone else, Someone good. – Lou Reed, “Perfect Day” Jetskis, she thinks, are really just boating motorcycles.

Not for any particular reason, but because I never really caught on to his music. However, […]
I love the onset of summer, if only because the gorgeous weather allows me to wear skirts and show off my (rather nice, in my humble opinion) legs. I bought this particular skirt at the Gap a few years ago, a simple pleated khaki and white plaid in homage to my schoolgirl days. It was […]
Last night one of my roommates and I were discussing our childhood idea of “the perfect body.” She and I are both well-endowed in the chest area, but breasts are something I have never really wanted. “You mean you never wanted big tits?” she asked incredulously. “What sort of pop culture were you exposed to […]
It’s Girl Scout cookie season. I know I’m officially a Grown-Up™ when I’m on the buying side of Girl Scout cookie season, rather than the selling side. Last week my boss circulated the order form (they’ve gotten even more expensive!) throughout the office, a gimmick my mum and dad used to do in order to […]
You know a little bit of sunshine is in order when, to your absolute horror and embarrassment, you realise your foundation is darker than your skintone. And to your even greater embarrassment, you realise that because you never really wear make-up, it’s taken you six months to realise this.
