Look who’s not a daddy’s girl

October 14, 2011


Recently, Meghan McCain (yes, daughter of John McCain) spoke at the University of Connecticut. Quite honestly, I didn’t know about it until after the fact. That’s what I get for not reading emails… Anyway, when I heard that she visited UConn, I rolled my eyes. She’s probably such a daddy’s girl, I thought to myself. […]

Enough with the bull

September 8, 2011


Who else thinks Obama was bad-ass tonight? I can hear a few of my commenters vomiting right now, lol. It’s been a while since I’ve heard such a strong speech by Obama. He was emphatic, he was stern, he was direct, he was sure. Missed it because you were pre-gaming for the official start of […]

Peace, maaannnn

September 6, 2011


When we think of world peace and working to achieve it, most likely these sorts of images come to mind: Yup, “peace” is just for those pure, hippie-dippie potheads, we think. So many people dismiss it. But we shouldn’t. Even I have fallen into that trap of thinking that peace is simply unattainable. People are […]

It’s possible to entertain me after 11:30 p.m.

September 2, 2011


Very little captures my interest past 11:30 at night. A 14-page piece from The New Yorker that I have to read for Literary Journalism? Dear lord, do I HAVE to read it? Yes, yes I do. It’s my senior year, so let’s own this shit, I tell myself. Come on, Grace, plug through it and […]

Let’s not be ripping down the closet doors

August 30, 2011


Hey peeps! I’m back! I stayed at a house on Lake Winnepesaukee in New Hampshire for a week and had a blast. Guess what?? I jet-skied for the first time. It was a proud moment for me, because I am usually a scaredy-cat when it comes to adventurous, daring things. For example, I’ve never been […]

Bachmann running from her words

August 16, 2011


Michelle Bachmann…               I’m sorry…that was mean. But I’m not a fan of the woman. Here’s why: Anderson Cooper talked on AC360 last night about some particularly insulting remarks Ms. Bachmann made several years ago about gays. She has been asked about those remarks recently many times, but she […]

Nice girls rarely make history

August 5, 2011


The following is the “ideal” woman: June Cleaver. She’s freaking picture perfect, isn’t she? She cooks. She cleans. She cares for her children. She  cares for her husband. She runs errands. She  does the gardening. She resolves all the family issues in a mere half hour. She’s what every wife, mother, friend, WOMAN should be, […]
