I’ve been digging through and clearing out the stuff I’ve left at my parents house, helping them convert my childhood bedroom into a guest room. I’ve been going through and documenting the things I don’t particularly wish to keep, but wanted to share before they got tossed. Thankfully, between the old notes from middle school, […]

Come on in for some fun, feminism, and science (with a side of misandry)!
Finally, your ability to quote almost every single line from Mean Girls is going to pay off! Colorado College is offering a class titled “Queen Bees, Wannabes, and Mean Girls (CO200)“. (For those of you who didn’t already know, the Mean Girls movie is based on a book, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive […]
