Ask me anything


Life is crazy, stressful, odd, depressing, dramatic, weird, beautiful, terrifying, amazing, and random. Its best to just go with it and enjoy it while its here.

The New York Subway Signs Experiment

"NYC subways have a strange rule. We took advantage of it."

This is cute. Also, I didn’t know that.

Embracing Your #AwkwardYears with @merileeloo

October is Bullying Prevention Month. To mark the occasion, we’re sharing the story of one Instagrammer who came up with a creative approach to reflect on her own childhood experiences and help today’s kids feel better about themselves.

When a friend asked Merilee Allred (@merileeloo) to see her old, awkward photos, she didn’t suspect it would kickstart an entire photo series and a blog. “I had a hard time wanting to show any of them to her because I was embarrassed of those pictures and my past,” Merilee says. “But then it sparked this idea to hold up my younger picture in portraits as a before-and-after. I realized I wanted to start a project that highlights our awkward years. Since I was teased and bullied, I thought it would be a good idea to raise awareness with it, and, maybe, hopefully help kids currently going through struggles, to let them know that life does get better.”

Enter the #awkwardyearsproject series on Instagram. “When I first started, I asked my friends and family to participate,” she explains. The project started on Instagram, but has since expanded to other platforms. “I only post the portraits I take on Instagram, but on my blog, Facebook and Twitter, I feature my portraits alongside guest submissions.”
