The IVF Diaries: Baby Steps

Some of you may remember a post I wrote a few months ago about having Turner syndrome. (If not, it’s cool: I have a link!) In it, I spoke about having the condition, but somehow in my stream-of-consciousness writer ways it ended up having a bit of a focus on one aspect of Turner syndrome […]

P-Mag Nostalgia Project: 2000 with Amanda

I was so elated when I was chosen for a section of  the Nostalgia Project, I could hardly stand it, and this year turned out to be an especially great one. I was amazed at how many things that ended up defining my early teenage years came out this year. And heeeeeeere we go!

Board Game Review: Apples to Apples

I write today, Persephoneers, to give my impression of a board game that I had the pleasure of testing out last week with my husband and a friend. I know that it’s been out a while, but I had never played it before, and it was really fun. It’s called Apples to Apples.

Universal Like You Mean It: A Team Member’s Guide to Guests

As mentioned in passing in some of my previous posts, I work at a local theme park, but I’ve never said until today that it was Universal Orlando. I’m here, lovelies, to give you all an insider’s guide to the parks (and CityWalk) so that if you’re ever in my neck of the woods, you […]

Nerd Love Can Happen

There are many reasons why I love my husband. He is kind, funny, generous, and always great to be around. For the most part, he always puts others before himself (although there are some exceptions to that one). No matter how I’m feeling, he can usually make me feel if not 100% better, at least […]

In the wake of the election, I decided to post something a little lighthearted and write a throwback review of a television show that is still near and dear to my  heart: Animaniacs!

On Turner Syndrome

By looking at me, you can’t tell. You’d assume I’m just your everyday, average short 26-year-old. (I am, but for the purposes of this article, I’m choosing to differentiate myself.) I may come off as a little goofy and childlike, but that’s all part of my charm, or so my husband says. Unless you are […]

Me and Baby Brother

I chose to post on October 9th for a reason. Today is my brother Aaron’s seventeenth birthday. As you all read this, I’m probably on my way over to my parents’ so that I can spend some time with him on his day. Will I succeed? Maybe, maybe not. He tends to be locked into […]

Snatches

For this week, my fellow Persephones, I am going to delve a little bit into my own psyche. Well, sort of. I’m taking a creative writing course this semester, and one of the subsections the professor set up was nonfiction. (Technically, she called it “creative nonfiction,” but only so that we could differentiate between something […]

I Am the (insert percentage here)!

As I’m sure is the case with many other voters countrywide, within the week or so I have developed another reason to vomit over the idea of a Romney presidency.

Movies With a Side of Nerd: “Pirate Radio”

And now, o fellow Persephones, I present to you the first in an I-don’t-know-how-often series that I’d like to call MOVIES WITH A SIDE OF NERD! :D I am calling it that because any movie I will post about will most likely not be one that you’ll find nominated for an award (although I swear […]

Here Comes The Sun

I normally refrain from putting up any sort of familial issue on the web, but after today, I knew what I wanted this week’s article to be about. Let me start about a year ago.

A Twenty-something Looks at Politics

As if you guys couldn’t get enough political articles to read, here’s my two cents (or less if you bargain with me) on the matter. As the title suggests, I am a twenty-something (25-soon-to-be-26 to be exact) who lives in Florida with my husband. Yes, we are a hetero white couple who live in a […]
