Confessions of a Girl who Never Sleeps: Dreams

I’m running through a forest of trees, the predator not far behind my steps. I get into the square metal building just in time. I’m breathing heavy, leaning against the steal door. The velociraptor breaks through the window and is working through the blinds as I open the door. He (or she — I really can’t be sure) reaches to bite my leg. I wake up.

Confessions of a Girl that Never Sleeps: The Posh Life for Me.

The two things I really spend money on are clothes and make up. Everything else, I will buy generic. My hair products, my food, my jewelry; even my bed cost 80 bucks at Ikea. But there’s one object in my life I’ve always wanted to be nice but could never afford: towels. One day, I was at my friend’s house for a bridal shower and and the guest of honor opens up her gift of expensive fluffy towels. I exclaim:...
