Week 3

It's week three of the year of less, and to be honest I slipped up this week. I bought the new Sims 4 expansion pack (Tiny Living, btw) AND ordered food twice! And one of the times it was Dominos! I spoke too soon last week, I s'pose. I talked myself into these things because … Continue reading Week 3

Year of Less: Week 2

I'm not gonna lie, this is way easier than I expected. While Rudy's surgery hurt my wallet, I was super proud of myself for having the funds on hand to be able to pay for it. In the week since, I think most of the money I've spent has gone to Lyft rides and groceries. … Continue reading Year of Less: Week 2

Year of Less: Week 1

Already a week into the new year, and my shopping ban is in full swing! I've set a budget and have tracked every expense, so I'd say things are off to a great start. Y'all, I have only purchased coffee once! I was thinking this would be the hardest habit to kick, but it's been … Continue reading Year of Less: Week 1

2020: My Year of Less

2019 is wrapping up y'all, and in 2020 the Suburban Hipster is #adulting. I moved twice last summer, and realized that I had entirely too much shit for a 23 year old. So I channeled Marie Kondo and got rid of a ton of it. It feels good to be able to see all of … Continue reading 2020: My Year of Less

My Top 10 Albums

A few months ago, my boyfriend Jason and I were at my mom's house for dinner, and found ourselves in a discussion of the top ten albums of all time. Obviously we each had our own ideas about which 25-minute-or-longer musical artifacts hold the most significance, and it ended up being a really interesting conversation. … Continue reading My Top 10 Albums

New Beginnings

When I started this blog 7 years ago, it was a place for me to explore my love of music in a new way. I have always been a playlist maker and a journaler (okay, owner of many journals), and have a preoccupation with documenting things. I really loved doing research on new bands and … Continue reading New Beginnings

Vote Yes is Winning?

Somehow, supporters of the marriage amendment to ban gay marriage are outnumbering those who will "Vote no." According to a recent poll, 50% of Minnesotans support the amendment, and only 43 % are against it. Crazy. Honestly, what's most concerning to me is that Minnesota is considered to be one of the most liberal states.

In the Words of Sassy Gay Friend, What, what, WHAT are you doing?!

Judge Tom Head means freakin' business as he warns the public of civil unrest, civil disobedience, and possibly civil war in the event that President Obama is reelected. Where do I even start? Let's start with an angry rant, then I'll provide some logical thinking. Seriously. What, what, WHAT is he doing?! Who even is … Continue reading In the Words of Sassy Gay Friend, What, what, WHAT are you doing?!
