Coloring Books

Coloring Books

    Adult coloring books are seriously the best thing ever. I’ve always liked creative things, but I literally have zero talent when it comes to drawing, and adult coloring books are the perfect happy medium. You don’t have to be super artistically talented and can still […]

Peter Pan

Peter Pan

A Reaction to the Grammys

A Reaction to the Grammys

So here’s the dilemma:     I REALLY dislike Meghan Trainor. She ruined my freshman year summer with “All About that Bass” and continued to ruin others’ lives with songs like “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.” She won the Best New Artist Grammy, when it should’ve CLEARLY […]
