Even More Unpopular Opinions

So I've done two of these so far (find them here and here) and now I'm back with a whole new round of unpopular opinions. Agree or disagree, some of these are sure to spark conversation or debate!

1. Glossier is overrated.

2. Short hair on girls is super cute.

3. Game of Thrones was probably the worst series of the decade. 

4. Traveling alone is more fun than traveling with a partner.

5. Bob Dylan is good, but probably not the best folk singer of all time. (Sorry, fellow Minnesotans!)


  1. Unpopular opinions are always fun to read! I definitely agree that short hair on girls looks great (as well as long hair). I even like how some girls look bald :)

    As for Game of Thrones, I really loved the series right up until the last season that I really wish didn't exist. It's still hard for me to believe that it was such a colossal failure (as far as I'm concerned at least).

    1. It seems like a lot of people didn't like the end of Game of Thrones. That's a bummer, it's always horrible to close a series on a sour note.

      Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a lackluster ending, in my opinion, and I'll always be a little salty about that. :p

    2. I feel the same way about Buffy. It was my favorite when I was growing up and I was so disappointed by the ending...

How to Unlock Your Best Life: Move The Fuck Out!

If you've been reading any of my recent blog posts, a consistent theme has surely cropped up and that has been the desire for me to have my own place to live. A few weeks ago, I actually signed a lease on a new studio apartment - for real.

Nestled in a lovely Stepford-esque neighborhood just south of where I work in Lowertown, this ground level unit is running me less than $700 a month and has freshly painted white walls, newly refinished floors, surround sound speakers and well....excellent water pressure. Because that's important.

Last weekend, I started moving in and it was an adventure:

One member of my moving party cancelled on me the morning of - due to a hangover - and while I was initially bummed at not having her large SUV at my disposal, I made the best of the situation in order to move 80% of my personal belongings via two car trips. A huge shout-out to my cousin and her boy for the assist. And a special thank you to Angie who was battling a hangover of her own and …

52 Self Discovery Questions - Question #7

7. What are my personal gifts? I used to think that I viewed the world from a lens that was very different to other people's. Where someone saw opportunity, I saw struggle. Where most would see the glass half empty or full, I was looking at what the contents were. Where I saw beauty and wonder, most others saw decay or rot or vulgarity. I saw paths other people couldn't...

For a long time, I felt very at odds with the world around me. I knew I wasn't the only "different" person in the world, that was statistically impossible, but I don't think I was meant for the small farming community I came up in either. It took travel and years of relocating to see that there are so many different lenses through which to view the world - each of them valid and unique to the individual bearer.

One of my best and strongest of gifts is my ability to change out which lens I see the world through, depending on who I'm interacting with, what kind of perspective-shift I need…

So you want to teach yourself Japanese? Part One

I took a year of Japanese in university - and in that year of intense study and group projects I had mastered hiragana, katakana, and some Kanji. I was doing well. Then the class was over and I no longer had an opportunity to use what I had learned.

90% of my fluency went up in smoke.

One of my 2019 goals is to re-learn all that Japanese fluency that I lost. I'm pretty much starting from scratch, so if you're also interested in teaching yourself Japanese, I invite you to come along on this journey with me.

I also have a variety of handouts, practice sheets, and some flash cards from my old university class. I will strive to provide links to those resources as I'm able to locate them!
