The Best Piece of Advice I Was Ever Given

Recently I had the honor of having a personal article published in Bust. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Bust, it is a kick-ass, groundbreaking, women’s lifestyle magazine and website that aims to connect with bright, influential young women. The magazine was founded in 1993, and is published six times a year. It has an attitude that is funny and feminist, but still addresses key issues for a variety of topics, including sex, the fashion industry, music and politics.

Exciting Life Update

Hello friends and prepare yourself, I am about to get loquacious. I am sure that you have noticed over the past month that I haven’t been on the blog much, which makes me quite sad. I think I underestimated how much of a time suck moving to a new city and starting a new life would be, and honestly I have been struggling with time management. Austin is an incredible city with so many events and so much life that I have already had some of the best experiences of my life here. I have met not one, not two,…
