Snakes on a Boat

One thing about me that has never changed, practically since I was born, is my ultimate fear of snakes. I have had nightmares about snakes since I was 0 years old. I probably even dreamt about them the night I was conceived. They are the world’s most terrifying and useless creature and also, ugly. Every …

My Drunk Anonymous Friends

I thought it would be quite entertaining to share a bunch of hilarious mini drunk stories from over the years. No names will be mentioned because of course everyone is a professional something or other now. So, will I write about you, or can you guess which ones were actually just me? - The time …

Advice to My 23 Year Old Self…or Anyone

A friend requested I write about what advice I would have given to my slightly younger self (yes, I can take requests!). This is an accumulation of some of my experiences, and trust me, I’m sure I could write another one of these in about a year. Instagram Is Not Real Life Falling into the …

Life with an (Un)Fashionable BF

I am very lucky to be in a happy relationship with my best friend (although he refuses to call me his). He is thoughtful, kind, funny (mostly to himself), generous and very personable. He is also fashionable, for the most part. Not to say that I am the biggest fashion guru on the planet, but …

Wide Legged Bandit

Just under two years ago I started a job at a new company, and though at first it seemed like a far reach from my personal style, I quickly began to drink the Koolaid, or even chug some might say. You see, my personal style BEFORE my new job was mostly all black and whatever …

The Rebirth of Rapunzel’s Reality

I originally started this blog because I needed to create something, in a time where I felt that I had nothing particularly special happening in my life. I mainly shared the misfortunate happenings that seemed to continuously occur to myself—a young, single and naive girl living in the city. Fast-forward to four years later, I’d …

Crying on the Inside, Broke on the Outside

As I sit here cuddled up in my bed on a Sunday afternoon, doing countless hours of reports for work (on my day off), it strikes me.. whats this all even about? I’m 22, working in retail, working to live, living with 3 roommates and having Ginger Ale for breakfast. Is this what being a …

Club Footed Freak

I’d like to apologize for my unexplained, extended absence from Rapunzel’s Reality. These past few months life has decided to pick up, now this doesn’t mean that embarrassing things don’t happen anymore, its more that I don’t have the time to write about them. But this most recent experience left me no choice but to …

Tears and Fears of Near Unemployment

Most of us by now can all understand the depressing roller coaster that is unemployment, and because I decided to document my broke-ass journey, your all aware of mine. For the past two and a half months I've been working at a clothing store that I've really come to enjoy, and would be quite upset …

Don’t Pay the Extras

To be perfectly honest, I don’t do much with my free time. Basically, my time when I’m not working is spent watching netflix or drinking cheap alcohol and pretend I’m saving money that way. Recently, I had a night off and was asked by my agency to be an extra in a music video. Now …
