In this month’s edition of “Do It Anyway,” my goal is to make you like saving money. Well, maybe not like, but you definitely won’t hate it. Money seems to be a huge issue these days. Someone’s always either complaining about not having enough or hating people who do. Although money isn’t ...

I love finding things that allow me to burst through a rainbow and scream “I’m gay!” at the top of my lungs and skip down the street with an attitude that says, “I’m still better than you.” Recently, I have started to dabble in my love for makeup. I’ve always liked makeup-- except I am r...

Turning dreaded activities into everyday normalities, the aim with my column “Do It Anyway” is to provide insight on why it’s important, based on experience, to do those little things in life nobody really wants to do. To paint a quick picture of myself, I’d say I’m a pretty independen...

For this month’s DIY (do it yourself) project, I made shamrock shakes, since almost everyone goes crazy when McDonald’s brings them back every March. I found this recipe through Pinterest. I used 2 cups of vanilla bean ice cream, 1 cup of heavy cream, ⅓ cup of milk (it doesn’t matter what kind...

The loss of a loved one is inevitable sooner or later. I’m not going to get all into the death topic this time, but I’m talking about the months or even years beforehand. Sure, every process of getting there is different. Sometimes it’s sudden and happens really fast or at a time no one would’ve...
