Elise Sickinger, Backpage Editor

March 22, 2020

Stepping outside into the backlot, the frigid mid-winter air nips at your ears—you’re still trying to grow your hair out long enough to cover them.

June 2, 2017

You awake at 6 AM on the dot to a loud, relaxing “BEEP. BEEP. BEEP” followed by the daily yelling of your family to change your alarm -- but you’re too lazy to do so. Plus, it’s the clock’s default alarm, and there must have been a reason for that. Then, you dress yourself in your daily...

First thing you do when you wake up every morning is grab your air horn and run to your sister’s room. She’s about to be pranked. BWAAAAPPPP. Satisfied that she has been properly woken up, you grab your whoopee cushion and head downstairs. You treat your family to a lovely breakfast of pancakes...

May 11, 2017

You wake up from a horrible night’s sleep; your laptop’s screen was lit up all night and you were too lazy to get out of bed and close it. To make matters worse, you forgot to plug in your phone last night. You’re only at 97%! You think to yourself, “How am I going to survive the day without...

BP Profile: Too hyped for Christmas Kid

March 27, 2017

They smell you before they see you walking in the hallway. Wearing your grandma’s ugly sweater that survived in the closet three generations too long and exerting the light scent of peppermint, you pass them by.
