Emma’s Dilemma: Denial

Emma’s Dilemma: Denial

I think I’m in denial about leaving high school. Of course, it’s hard to tell if you’re, you know, ACTUALLY in denial. Mostly because denial is not admitting that something is happening and basically lying to yourself, but I’m fairly sure I am. Almost entirely sure, for a matter of fact. ...

You know that feeling when you learn about something and then suddenly it’s everywhere? I’ve been having that feeling constantly the last several months. It seems like every movie and show I watch has something to do with someone’s senior year in high school. Frankly, it’s maddening. I know wha...

I know there are many options for my post this week (I know many seniors will never forgive me for forgetting powder puff), but I have one topic that seems perfect for this Thanksgiving week. Let me set the scene: My mom and I were in San Francisco to see If/Then with Idina Menzel. The show start...

If you have heard anything about my life these past few weeks, you could assume this post is about one of two things: college applications, or the fact that Cody thought he lost his pants and definitely lost his ID. Both relate to identity crises, but the former is a topic I think is more representative ...

Dear Diary, So much has changed over the past ten months. It seems like just yesterday I had Jack, and now he has said his first word, can crawl all over the house (and gets into everything possible), Drew and I are now engaged, and I’m in college. Every Saturday, Jack and I walk down to Mr....

Emma’s Dilemma: ASB Elections Fall Flat

A few weeks ago, the voting for the student government class next year occurred. Maybe for the other grades this is a momentous occasion (the junior class president race is heating up, after all), but for the juniors that are about to be seniors (take a second for the panic to sink in), voting was a...

A few months ago, I went and saw Mockingjay and Natalia and I each got a large soda. Now this was not just a large soda. This was a LARGE soda that was bigger than my face. I got it because it was refillable and we would be there for a while. I regretted this because that thing was heavy. While carrying...

You know that scene in Sleeping Beauty, the animated one, not Maleficent, where the fairies fight over what color Aurora’s dress should be? And they change it back and forth from pink to blue and back again? That’s a pretty good representation of my weekend. On Saturday after my mom picked me...

Down With SeaWorld and Their Blood Money

It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t seen, or at least heard of, the documentary Blackfish. There has been plenty of debate about SeaWorld and the treatment of their animals. Since the airing of the documentary in 2013 on CNN, ticket sales have dropped, entertainers have canceled appearances, and...

After impatiently waiting for nine months to see the little person who kicked me non-stop, gave me horrid morning sickness, tossed my self esteem down the drain, and broke me out into hot flashes in the middle of winter, my beautiful son was born on Sunday, November 9 at 10:06 p.m.

I haven’t had a full night’s sleep since March 1st (at least). I have also realized that on last Wednesday, I spent more time in the theater than at my house. I have paint-stained clothes and bags under my eyes and a room that’s filled with things I carried into my room and dropped on the floor...

At the Grammy’s this year, Sam Smith won four awards and in his acceptance speech, he thanked his ex-boyfriend who broke his heart and because of him “he had four Grammys.” His speech was given high praise by all kinds of media and has become a staple on Tumblr. But as much as I enjoyed his...
