I know I have been gone forever, I am so so sorry!! I just haven't been able to think of anything good to write on here. And then I realized that this is not the type of blog I am looking to do. I want to write funny things but not all the time, sometimes I will have some serious things to talk about to.

Essentially I just want to write about my life and things I am learning and experiences that I am going through and what my thoughts are on them as well as hear/read your guy's thoughts and opinions as well.

So I have started a new blog that is going to allow me to do that a bit better I think. I would love for you guys to check it out :-)


Thank you all!!!!

Hello Darlings!!!!

How many of you lovely ladies have ever been taking a nice relaxing stroll enjoying a beautiful day only to be interrupted by the sweet sound of "Hey Baby. Let me holla at you for a second."

Oh Romeo how you make me swoon!!

BUT for those of you ladies who are not so impressed, the struggle to not do a 180 and whack-a-toolbag is very real!!! I know how you feel and I am here to help. First of all, let's all take a quick relaxing breath together to calm those frayed nerves....whooo saaaa..... Good!

Now here are some tips to help you survive the "Hey Baby Toolbags" of the world::

1) Just Keep Walking. I am not saying that this guy will stop talking to you but eventually you will be out of ear shot. Problem Solved.

2) Turn Around and Give the Jenna Marbles Face. So if you have attempted to keep walking and he follows you, just turn around right in front of him, freeze, and give him the most distorted face you can make. Now the trick to this step is not in the face it's self but in the execution of holding the face for however long he continues to stand with you. No matter what he does or says or how long he stays in your presence, you must remain motionless and staring at him with that lovely distorted face. This may take 5 seconds or 5 hours so get ready test you human statue skills!!

3) Whip Out The Ninja!! If you are one of those ladies who is a bit impatient and is unwilling to waste your precious time waiting for the Jenna Marbles Face to kick in, then become a ninja!! Or at least give the appearance that you're a ninja. Firmly plant those feet, squat down a bit, place your hands in the ninja fighting position. And to top it all off give a few ninja battle cries like my personal favorite "AHHH  YA!!"

4) Unleash The Female Tongue of Death!!! Everyone knows that females are born with the ability to inflict some serious wounds with our quick insult throwing tongues of death, men never stand a chance in the face of a heated woman. So release your God given talent and give that toolbag a piece of your mind!!

5) And if all else fails... drop that Grade A slice of rotten meat off your nearest bridge!!

I hope these tips help you over your own "Hey Baby" Toolbag as they have helped me and if you have any other suggestions or helpful tips, please feel free to share them in the comments below :-)

That's all for now :-)

And always remember: In Daily Life, The Struggle Is Real

Hello Darlings!!!!!

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be a barbarian??? Well head on down to your local CrabPot and you will at least get to experience a barbaric lunch/dinner!!!!

So this past weekend my mom and I took a trip out to LA and drove down to Long Beach one day. While we were there my mom had stated that she wanted to go to a place to eat seafood that had a view of the water. So we ended up at the CrabPot in the Marina. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and we were able to sit outside. Now for those of you from the West Coast you may have heard of this restaurant but since we are from the Midwest, we had not. Though we quickly began to realize that it was essentially another Joe's Crab Shack but just restricted to the West Coast. At least knowing that it was only on the coast helped us to know that the food was fresh.

Now, if you ordered a regular meal, then you just got a plate and silver wear like any other restaurant BUT if you ordered shrimp or crab legs, you got these super high fashion bibs!!! Now, the struggle to pull this bib off is high but I'll give you the secret, add a floppy sun-hat…


Now, here is where your barbarian experience REALLY begins. They then bring your food out to you in this giant bowl and I am thinking they set the bowl in front of you right?? WRONG!! They take the contents of the bowl, mine was crab legs, shrimp, corn on the cob, and roasted red potatoes, and dump it on the table in front of you. Yes, all mixed together in just one big pile.

Fancy. I mean just too classy for the establishment it was served in clearly. Can we say white linen table clothes and fine china worthy?? I think so!!

So just as any hoity toity high class society individual would do, I took off my rings, and plunged into the fishy pile of goodness. And boy was the food finger-lickin good!!! Which leads me to the next struggle I faced with….melted butter.

How to eat these fantastic crab legs dipped in melted butter and still maintain your high fashion image…the struggle is real….solution??? Well that lovely bib you have been provided with of course!! See these are not your everyday bibs. Just like those super absorbent Huggies diapers, these bibs will suck up anything!! And you don't even have to worry about things soaking through because the CrabPot has taken these straight out of the surgical unit in the nearest hospital which means there is a plastic backing that prevents any disastrous liquids from reaching your clothes. So indulge! Go Crazy! Embrace the barbarian within you!! But remember, there is a such thing as a classy barbarian, I know it's a struggle, but for goodness sake, use your napkin!! I mean what were you, raised in a cave?!?!?!

And always remember:: in everyday life, the struggle is real :-)

Hello darlings!!!!

My name is Ericka and I am 23 years old. I am starting a blog to talk all about the struggles of daily life with (hopefully) a unique comical twist. But I decided my first blog should be a bit about myself so…….here we go!!!

I am 23 and attending the University of Missouri in St. Louis. I am studying Communications with a specialty in Public Relations and a Minor in Theater. I have discovered I like all things in the entertainment field but I also LOVE to talk so…..communications it was. I actually used to be majoring in nursing and right before my final semester started, I said, "No thank you. Not for me" and switched. Boy was my mother thrilled about that one :-)

Anyway, I am now doing all kinds of things to get involved and get my face out there. I have my own radio show on campus called "The Struggle" as well. I volunteer at a local radio station in the city, KDHX 88.1, where I make Public Service Announcements or PSAs. I just recently got my first part in a play in the city which I am STOKED about!!!! I started a youtube channel,, that I am starting to post regular youtube videos on. I actually have had the channel for a while but I just recently started to post regular videos to it. I talk all about my life and everything that is going on in it and how I feel about it. So….vlogging right? I think that's vlogging right??? There's no way to know haha. I also Vine almost everyday, @ErickaEaton, and I have a Twitter, @ErickaEaton, that I try to post daily thoughts too.

All in all these different things have been a good time and I am hoping this blog thing will be just as exciting!!!! That's all for now and remember:: in life, the struggle is real hahaha
