Rainbow unicorn toast.

Nose to the sky, we fly through the crisp December air splitting the clouds into millions of pieces. This setting is familiar. My legs sit on the plastic leather seat. Iced coffee to my right.

Here’s what I want my funeral to look like

Happy Thanksgiving you filthy animals. I'm spending my Thanksgiving in Brooklyn with family, so to fight the FOMO about missing out on Thanksgiving Eve festivities with friends, I decided to do a bit of "social experiment," if that's what you'd like to call it.

St. Patrick’s Day Collins

Age is just a number...right? March 17, 2013. It was St. Patrick's Day in Boston, the day after my 20th birthday. A few friends and I trekked into the city to catch the parade, although the parade was hardly the center of our focus.
