What Makes a Real Woman?

I don’t know why it took me so long to come to this odd realization, but it happened yesterday. I was watching The View (don’t judge – it was just on for background noise) and heard that Amy Schumer was bringing to light what it means to shop for clothes as a real woman. I’d heard…

The Best Accident

I’ve written before about Alpha Phi Omega, in a lot of ways, but for those of you tuning in, here’s what you missed: APO was an accident for me, in college. I was a freshman and attending as many interest meetings for clubs as I could, because that’s what you do as a freshman with…

New Year, New…Nothing Please.
