  Funeral Selfies are..a thing. The internet is abuzz right now over a tumblr entitled “Selfies at Funerals,” Wherein-- you guessed it-- people take selfies at funerals. Partly in jest, the selfies consist of teenagers making weird faces before , after and during funerals. The hashtags range anywhere from #funeral to #sadday.  Yes, our generation’s access to social media breeds superficiality (see pretty/ugly youtube trend). But holy smokes, I am terrified for the mental health of our teenagers. Read More
If you didn't have a Lisa Frank backpack at some point in your life, then I'm sorry your childhood was so miserable. Those iconic neon animals and the weird, ice-cream filled world they lived in was the stuff of dreams. Or the stuff you would hallucinate if someone spiked your Sunny D with acid.   Not that I would know from experience.

Michael: Did I just wake you up? I didn’t even know you were home. Lindsay: No, Michael, I don’t just sleep all day. Narrator: Actually, Lindsay was so upset at Michael that she tried meditating to calm herself but ended up taking a two-hour angry nap. I have a confession to make y'all. I am 100% obsessed with tumblr (don't let the intentional lack of capitalization denote anything less than total reverence). I spend HOURS sorting through the following tags, in no particular order: feminism (duh!), DIY, and Arrested Development. Read More
