Welcome to Illiterate Blondes! My name is Madeleine Rheinheimer, and I am glad that you are taking the time to read this sentence. Maybe you stumbled upon it by sheer accident, Googled the wrong thing, or are just trying to procrastinate doing laundry for another hour, because who likes doing laundry anyways?

Okay, two things: One, tonight, I am going to write about facing your fears. And two, it is currently 1 am. Dani and I are on winter break at the moment, but the clock is ticking. We have approximately 3 days left. We are determined to use this precious time wisely, and staying up late […]More
I really like the word hope. Probably enough to get it tattooed on my body just to remind me how much I like it.. just kidding. Mom calm down I won’t do that. Maybe a skull and bones on my forehead though. Or barbwire around my biceps. Listen to me, getting sidetracked already. Anyhow. The […]More
