Best Song Ever

by Marielle February 4, 2014

I’ve Got With Me All That I Need

by Marielle November 25, 2013

Okay, this post is probably gonna come off as a little cheesy, but who doesn’t get cheesy around the holiday season? Everyone likes to talk about what they’re thankful for this time of year, and I’d like to say that I’m thankful for people. Anyone in particular? Not really; I’m being purposefully vague. While it’s […]

For one joyous day out of every year, we get to celebrate the beauty of Americans […]

by Marielle November 5, 2013

Who has two thumbs and is excited about Spirit Week?!? Unsurprisingly, THIS kid right here. Back in my high school days, Spirit Week was a super big deal because we got to dress up according to themes (already right up my alley) and NOT WEAR OUR SCHOOL UNIFORMS. Now that I’m in college, I don’t […]

by Marielle October 29, 2013

You may think that as a senior in college, I’ve finally reached the point where I’m sick of going to school dances. You would be wrong. I love music, I love dancing, and I love dressing up. Hence, I have not missed one single school dance since my freshman year of high school. Homecoming, Winter […]
