Life is a mess. There’s no way of avoiding that. It’s sweet, bitter, fun, rough, beautiful–but in the end, always worth enjoying. Vodka & Cupcakes came together thanks to my crazy thoughts, undying passion for writing, and in my opinion, what summarizes the culture of an everything but average 20/30something trying to make sense of adulthood one post at a time.
And besides, who doesn’t love vodka & cupcakes?
“If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.”
I’m Rita, complete 80’s kid at heart influenced by the minds of everyone from John Hughes to Ice Cube, and I constantly feel like a live version of those “Me Getting My Life Together” memes. You know the ones.To my family and friends, I may look like a responsible adult, but I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m allergic to college, know entirely too much reality television and pop culture, probably love beer more than humans, sure my relatives believe I’m a closeted lesbian and I can’t handle a cat longer than a 24 hour period without feeling stressed. So my future as a cat lady is kinda screwed.
Oh, and I also love GIFs. A lot. Along with a good book on a quiet day, discovering new music, food, tacky Lifetime movies, the window seat of an airplane to my next adventure, food, conversations with someone smarter than me, and avoiding actual gym sessions. Every day is leg day when you’re running from responsibilities.
But really, while most times I feel like I have no idea where I’m going or what I’m doing…the good thing is, no one else really does either. We’re all in this mess together.
