My Beef with the Trending Topics

Every time I log on to Twitter there are a few things I have to check before I do anything else. The first place my eyes always divert is to that little box on the left side of the page which holds none other then the trending topics. The trending topics can sometimes be a life line for me. I've admitted that I get the majority of my news from social media channels, so I rely on them to tell me important things like if someone famous died, a tragedy occurs, a natural disaster happened in the world, ...Keep Reading

TV Out. Web Video In.

For the first time in my life, I don't have cable. I thought this would drive me crazy and at while at times it does, it has forced me to seek out other entertainment options that I otherwise wouldn't have discovered. This past Sunday, I tuned in the Third Annual Streamy Awards. For those who are not aware, the Streamys are basically the Emmys of web video. The two hour event was streamed live online. In between performances by Soulja Boy and Vanilla Ice, awards were given to some of YouTube's ...Keep Reading

7 Things I Love That are Completely Unrelated to Romance and Valentine’s Day: 2013 Edition

This is somewhat of a follow up to a similar post I did in 2011 about how much I hate Valentine's Day.

Britt Inspired Update: I Need a Job

So remember when I said I was back? Well, I lied. Not on purpose. But, the “real job” got in the way and I ran out time to work on the blog. Well, now the “real job” no longer exists and I need a new “real job” so I’m starting the blog back up again to prove that I can write and do stuff on the interwebs. I’m working on a blog post for tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled. And if you know of any job opportunities in Denver, hit me up. :)

How To Keep Sane During An Election Year Without Completely Unplugging

It's over! It's over! It's finally over! And thank the lord because I don't know how much more I could have handled. Seriously I hope none of you ever have the misfortune of living in a battleground state during an election year. At one point I counted 12 campaign commercials in one hour. 12! That's one every 5 minutes. Or in some cases, three in a row. I'm not even sure what show I was watching. I'm so excited I can start listening to Pandora again and I can go on Facebook without reading three ...Keep Reading

Britt Neglected

I'm baaaAAAACCCcckkk! (I hope you said that in your head the way I wanted you to). It's only been what, like 4 months? So I suppose you'd like to know where the hell  I've been all this time. Well, long story short I started a new job, got lazy and unfocused and got a terrible case of writers/ designers block. But, I'm back now. I hope. I'm currently working on a brand spanking new design for my blog. Part of the reason I stopped blogging was because I just got tired of looking at it. Sometimes ...Keep Reading
