Strange Night

By | Mar 12, 2011

It started when I heard a noise in the middle of the night. “Kloe? You slept over?” I said. With my roommate abroad, my other two “roommates” technically live next door, but the one sleeps over sometimes. She didn’t answer, so I went back to bed. The next strange thing was when I went to…


Detective Work

By | Mar 8, 2011

For someone who doesn’t have midterms, my teachers seem to be sneaking a lot of “midterm-like” assignments my way. It started with one essay for a class due this week. Easy enough. I took the essay as a midterm because the title was “midterm paper.” The teacher is fairly strait forward, so I didn’t mind…


Seeing the Reality of TV

By | Mar 6, 2011

The one thing I’ve always been able to rely on is ruining my life. Television, the heart and soul of my existence, is giving me unrealistic expectations of life. Relationships, both romantic and platonic, are supposed to go a certain way (perfectly). When they don’t, I’m at a loss for how to react. I also…


Plan

By | Mar 6, 2011

I’m so over Twitter. I didn’t use it except to see who followed me. And I don’t blame only 14 people pretending to check my page for updates; I only sent out four. The first was a test and the most exciting one was about my failed attempt to study in the school library. It’s…


Happy Birthday

By | Mar 2, 2011

There are the friends that you want to hang out with all day every day. Usually those relationships fizzle out after a few weeks, because you both realize that all your other friends need some time, too. That person can either remain a friend or not, and not seeing each other all the time is…


@Lill_Mill I’m Now on Twitter #Randomuselessknowlege

By | Feb 28, 2011

I spent Sunday in bed, mostly sleeping. Around 10 p.m. I woke up and have found myself with a surprising amount of time to kill. I am not a big social media user. Facebook isn’t my cup of tea—I’m more into chamomile. Different strokes for different folks, I always assumed, Facebook and I aren’t meant…


The Game

By | Feb 27, 2011

I just had an epiphany. It is a few years too late, but still worth noting. In high school when I wanted something, I played a game with my mom. “Hey can I go out tonight?” “Sure,” (for the record, the process from asking to go out and getting the go ahead was more complicated.)…


Reverse Volcano

By | Feb 25, 2011

I woke up this morning and saw the white light. Not “light,” but “tundra,” which for all intensive purposes is close enough. Ithaca, NY, for those who don’t know, has been hit with snow. It’s not that much, but it is coming down quickly so it seems like more than normal. Nothing was plowed when…


20 Going on 30 (Yikes)

By | Feb 18, 2011

So today in class I had to write for a certain amount of time without stopping. I mostly went from topic to topic in my mind and wrote them down. People have told me that they want to “live in my brain for a day,” but seeing my thoughts written down, I don’t think they…


Back Story

By | Feb 15, 2011

In one of my script writing classes today we talked about drama, and how to create it. Being a teenage girl, I assumed that I know everything there is to know about drama, but there was a whole different lesson in it for me. “There is a protagonist, who has an overall objective,” the professor…


Radio Shift

By | Feb 12, 2011

I sat in my bed, wrapped around my body pillow. All I wanted to do was sleep, but I kept my eyes open as I watched TV on my computer. It was Thursday night, and like every Thursday last year, I was awaiting the clock to strike midnight, for my radio shift. Last year I…


Culture…Whatever That Means

By | Feb 8, 2011

An assignment for a class I’m taking involved “identifying and explaining two cultures you belong to.” Easy enough, I thought. Wrong. I started by thinking about how I would describe myself. I came up with the following: I get all my news from “SNL Weekly Update” and “The Daily Show.” “Sex and the City” and…
