My feet are in two worlds.

One more than the other. The other has desperately been trying to get it’s hold and it’s been failing for nearly 26 years. I’m not going to sit here and tell you I’m oppressed or that I’ve been on the receiving end of racism; we both know I’m not and I haven’t. I do want…

When pride is absent.

I’m the worst dancer you’ll ever meet. When I dance, it looks like my limbs are flailing. My parents introduced me to a lot of activities as a kid — which I’m incredibly thankful for. I played sports, took art classes, and did dance. I’ll bet you didn’t know that when I was about four…

My favorite F-word.

A little over a year ago, I started writing this blog post but I never shared it. Guess what? I just deleted that whole first draft and I’m going to start over because I grew as a person and that’s worth talking about. Hopefully it took you about ten seconds to figure out that my…

Vaccinations aren’t the problem, you are.

  Look out, Bonnie’s about to get her rant on. Also a disclaimer: I am not a parent and this is not a post telling parents how to be parents. You do you. I totally believe you have your kid’s best interests at heart. But you bet your vegan sugar free shitty tasting organic brownies…

Honest feelings about hashtags.

Okay. Here’s a thing: 83% of people incorrectly use hashtags on social media. I’m convinced. For some reason, hashtags are the most difficult thing for the general population to understand. I’d venture a guess that people are more bamboozled by hashtags than they are why warning labels haven’t been removed from hair dryers. Obviously you…

Why do you fight so hard? You’re not special.

This is going to be one of those posts that I’m half afraid to even put out there because of the potential backlash it could bring out. However, I strongly feel it needs to be said. I want to start this post with a disclaimer: I have a relatively legalistic upbringing which made figuring out…

I went back to my roots.

No, I’m not talking about hair color. I went back to my old stomping grounds this morning for the annual pool shoot. You know the one. It’s where I took that one photo I entered in that one contest that one time. Yeah, it’s pretty rad. Well, of course, since I’m in town I wanted…

To the people who think Photoshop is the problem.

I have a serious problem with you. Yep. You read that correctly: I have a problem with people who have a problem with Photoshop(ping pictures of the human figure). Notice how I didn’t single out women. It’s not just a problem women go through. It’s just as easy to dodge and burn in some excessively…

How to talk to your daughter about her body.

“How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works. Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight. If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things…

I entered this photo contest.

I’ve always been a rather competitive person. I played sports growing up and always loved the rush that came with going up against other people in order to win. For many years I played soccer, I was in no way the best player on the team, but I could take (and give out) some pretty…

This is JK Rowling’s world, we’re just living in it.

I’m going to address that thing that JK Rowling said. You know the thing. The thing where J.K. Rowling admitted that she thought Hermione and Harry would have made a better couple than Hermione and Ron. I mean. Okay. I can see how that would surprise some people. But the people it didn’t surprise is…

So

The last few months I’ve written some blog entries, but never posted them. I finished them all but I didn’t really need anyone to read them. I just needed to write them. One post was about was about how I shot a wedding for one of my good friends in college and by the end…

An Open Letter to Stay at Home Moms

Dear SAHMs, This isn’t going to be what you think it is. Coming from a 22 year old with no children, this might not mean a ton to you. But I wanted to apologize to you on behalf of other women (people) my age who don’t have kids. Let me tell you a couple stories,…
