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).

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…

22 things to do in general.

You know that list of 23 things you *should* do before you get married or instead of getting engaged or whatever? Yeah it’s the one everyone is obsessed with. All this controversy. Blah blah. How are you going to make this new, Bonnie Jean? By telling you there isn’t a deadline for you to do…
