Wow! Am I going crazy? Seventy degrees in DECEMBER! That is unreal. No, I’m not complaining. I am soaking up all the sunshine I can get. Since finishing my semester at Wichita State, I have created a to-do list of activities to help keep me busy and away from Netflix. So far, I’ve done a […]

I have never changed a baby’s diaper. I don’t really ever want to, but I want to be a mom. You see my dilemma. But that has nothing to do with this blog. The real point is, guacamole is not baby poop. I have never understood why people would compare it to baby poop. Well, […]

On one trip to the grocery store Jared and I were both hit multiple time by parents who let their four year old kids push the shopping carts. You know, that mini carts with the flag poles so parents can actually push them when in reality parents just let their little spawn run rampant through […]

Ready. Set. Cliche’. This is my Things I’m Thankful For 2015/ obligatory Thanksgiving Day blog post. Let is be know that I am holiday hater. I don’t know what it is, but I am one of those Americans who groans when stores start setting out their holiday decorations and themed paper plates. Yes, I am […]

Anyone else remember their first tweet? Mine went something like this… “What is this? Twitter is stupid. I’m going back to Facebook.” I think I was most drawn to Facebook because of Mark Zuckerberg’s nerd-chic attractiveness and because who could tell a story in 140 characters? That was unheard of… to my 16-year-old self. However, […]

Yesterday while I was complaining… …to my boyfriend (Jared) about how upset I was that my sorority chapter didn’t win a competition, he stopped me and said, “Alyssa, being Greek isn’t about winning.” I replied in my most annoyed tone: “Uhh, Jared. Yes it is. All we do it compete.” Clearly I was super offended. […]

My name is Alyssa Johnson and I am a junior member of Delta Gamma. When I received my bid to the Gamma Upsilon (Wichita State) chapter of Delta Gamma I had no idea how much my actions would impact the lives of others. But first, let’s go back: Twelve years before my entrance to the […]

I have never before had an office of my own. And, well, I still don’t, but today I’m sitting in the design office at B2H Marketing daydreaming about a time when this will be reality — when I can update the plain walls with photographs of my future husband, children and thirty-seven dogs and have […]

Three and a half years ago I removed half of my life. While that statement may sound bizarre to many people, for me it was a completely necessary move. When I finally had the courage to stand up to my father and step-mother and step-sister and entire Johnson family, I became free. So I thought… […]

I never thought that writing would be, like, my thing. I mean, when you’re forced to read a boring novel and compose a compare and contrast essay on the two main characters’ personality traits, writing feels more like a miserable task that eventually ends up wounded with red ink than a beneficial act of expression. […]

Reality TV, for me, is a real problem. I literally struggle to function when I miss one of my twelve weekly shows. Yes, I said TWELVE. Mondays are dedicated to Worst Cooks in America. My Tuesdays belong to Are You the One?. On Wednesdays I watch Survivor, The Real World, and American Idol. Thursday I […]

Girls with long, beautiful hair are living a lie. On any given windy, Kansas day it can cause numerous injuries. My hair whipping around my head and viciously attacking my eyes has periodically blinded me on several occasions. It hurt, but I let it continue to happen. I did nothing but let me hair grow […]

Today I don’t feel it is too far-fetched to say my total worth sits in my diminishing bank account of $18.36. Here is my rant: 1. I probably won’t graduate until Fall 2017 (If I’m lucky!) 2. I had to pay back scholarship money, because I changed my major. 3. I was never billed for […]

Let’s just get a few things straight. I am not a “list of 20 reason why” blogger. I am not perfect with grammar nor am I wonderful at all times punctuation. And there is no way in Hell that I am going to repost pins from Pinterest here. If that’s what you want, just follow me there. I […]

Nothing in my life has ever been typical, so I am unsure why I assumed that this spring break trip would be just that. Tonight, after the a terrible, over-priced dinner, never did I expect my sour mood to be stunted by “The World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade” in the heart of this seemingly […]
