Recently I started up my LinkedIn. I know, I know, it sure took me a while! But after having a Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Tumblr… You get it. There’s a lot of social media to keep up on, so why do the uber corporate thing and get a LinkedIn? I’m a writer! I don’t need LinkedIn! Right?? Continue reading
So about a month ago I turned 26. Whoo hoo! Go me! I made it another year!
Of course, me being on social media and all, a slew of “Happy B-day Cat!” notes were posted all over my Facebook wall from people I’m close with and not-so-close-with alike. Some had personal messages, some photos attached, some just said “Happy Birthday!!!”
So what did I do later that night? Why, I wrote the obligatory “Thank you for your kind bday wishes everyone, I’m so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life!!!” status update. And I meant it. I really did. It’s nice to feel that much love one day a year. Continue reading
In bed, the phone goes off. It’s during the creeping hours of the evening. Your #1 guy or gal goes “WHO’S THAT NOW BLOWING UP YOUR PHONE?” And while you may not be busted per se, it’s obvious that something’s going on.
You cheating jerk.
They’re your zany, fun and filtered friends on Instagram, and you know you love em’. (By the way–I am totally ALL of these people).

It’s a nice surprise to open your app to that many likes, so be sure to return the favor, since that’s the whole point. Continue reading
Ahhh, Twitter. A never-ending strand of thoughts, be they good or bad! Even if you’re NOT on Twitter, you see Tweets everywhere. All day. Foreva.

Celebrity Gossip site?

You guessed it. Effing Twitter. All day. Everyday foreva. Just like I said. Continue reading
You know how it is when you’re D.C. chillin’ all day, every day with your bestie for months, years, weeks, whatever. You guys call each other, text constantly asking “OMG what are you doing later?!” on a whim. You have fun, go out dancing and laugh about your crazy shenanigans at brunch the next day. Maybe you attempt the gym as a unit, working on yo’ fitness. YOU GET WHAT I’M SAYIN. Y’all are close.
