BACK IN MY DAY (because I’m old?) breaking up with someone via text message was basically the worst thing you could possibly ever do. There was even a song about it. As a victim of what was kind of/sort of/definitely a text message break up once upon a time a long time ago, I can […]

Dear Today’s Youth…

Dear today’s youth, It may be a sign that I’m getting old, but there are a lot of things that you teens and 20-year-olds do that I just do not understand. You wear crop tops.

Please Stop Overachieving, Younger Sister

I’m the oldest in a family of three girls, but I most definitely look like the youngest (it’s a gift, and a curse.). Due to this, often times people will confuse my younger sister and I. I’m 26, and she’s 24, and she looks maybe like she’s 31, and she has her life completely together. […]

An Open Letter To Online Negative Commentators

Dear Hidden Villain, As I’m trying to break into the world of online blogging, I have noticed that you always have something to say and it’s almost never positive. What’s up with that?

I Abstained for 40 Days

I took Lent to the next level this year. Instead of giving up one thing important in my life, I created a list of things.  Here’s what I came up with: No sex of any kind. That should have been enough; I’m 24. But it’s whatever, so I went further: No alcohol (I really enjoy […]

Checking in on the Dry-Speller

The last time you heard from me I was giving up all forms of sex for Lent. I was also giving up junk food, drinking, swearing, House of Cards, dehydration and Hayden Panettiere, but those are minor in comparison for a single 24-year-old male. That was 5 weeks, trips to San Diego, San Francisco and […]

It’s (Not) Going Down, I’m Yelling TINDER

For someone who is employed by the Internet, I am incredibly technologically inept.  I mean, a few months ago, I learned prefixing a web address with “www” is no longer necessary.  When I heard about “Tinder”  I was leery of giving it a try, largely because I knew there was a 100% chance I would […]

FTS Reflects: Looking Back on the 2013 Boston Marathon

One year ago, you were probably glued to the TV. Horrible images filled the screen. People being wheeled away on stretchers and in wheelchairs. Crowds that had been cheering started sobbing and screaming. Countless sirens and flashing police and ambulance lights. As hard as it was to watch and hear these horrible things, it’s even harder […]
