Sleep deprived mom of a three year old. Crazy Boston sports fan. Will eat any food placed in front of me. Knower of useless facts. If there's a dog, I'm probably petting it.
Does Coronavirus Mean the End of Sports as We Know Them?
For decades, sports were a constant, part of the background noise of American culture, and maybe an unhealthy obsession. Games were always on. Radio always filled with banter. Twitter fights were had. (And enjoyed by many). There were office pools, side bets and serious gambling. Sports gave us something to talk about when the conversation slowed, something to watch when there was nothing else to do.
Sometimes the Girl Who Is Always There for Everyone Else, Needs Someone There for Her
You feel a lot when you're the girl who is always there for others, whether you're willing or not. Your heart is a vast expanse of water, sometimes troubled and sometimes calm—but always ready to give life to those who need it... even for those too afraid to swim. You are a multilayered personality whose depths seem to have absolutely no limits. You give and you give and you give; tearing pieces of your paper soul into the smallest of fragments just to set someone else aflame.
One More Chance to Love You
The saying, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” has always stood true in my mind, especially when it comes to relationships. When you’re dealing with love, it’s easy to let things slide and quickly forgive and forget. But how do you know when you should give your partner a second chance, or when it’s time to officially call it quits? The tricky part is that it all depends. It depends on your situation, relationship dynamics, and a million other factors that are unique to only you.
What Does It Mean to Be a Woman?
Nowadays thanks to the World Wide Web anyone, much like the good Generation Z-er I am, has an endless black hole of knowledge right at our fingertips wherever we are in the world. Whether one may think it’s a good or a bad thing, there’s simply no hiding from it. When trying to conceive an answer for what it means to be a woman, I trusted my handy pal Google to help me out. Much to my lack of surprise, the results were nothing to shake your tail feather at. It’s easy to find the few recurring blogs from singular perspectives or an array of online articles. Each piece is found to be discussing stereotypes, hormones, psychology, or biology. How IS it that such an intricate and varied group of powerful people are condensed into fitting sterile categories? These categories with little to no mention of what lies beneath these things? Brushed under a rug to be left as nothing but a list of certain criteria and criticisms. Is being a woman really chalked up to being only a superficial idea? I stumbled across a question that had no definitive answer; a question that I realized is nearly absent from our current world conversations.
Daddy Dearest (Pt. 1)
My father gave me the experience of heartbreak long before any other man could have the chance. He often told me that these things were normal, that it was supposed to be a part of growing up. You're supposed to learn things in new ways, and it's supposed to better oneself.
Anatomy of a Heartbreak
Being in love is arguably the greatest thing that can happen to someone; there is nothing better than finding someone who completes you. When you meet this person, you won't remember how you lived without him or her. Being in love transforms you into someone new.
Does Social Media and Technology Conduct Isolation Within Users?
Cell phones, robotic pets, technology and all the advances that have come in the past twenty years—the past five years alone. The irony of everything is social media platforms. They're created to allow users to embrace the concept of making friends and keeping in touch with those who've been lost, but in the darkness of it all, establish a longing for actual human interaction. Countless studies have been completed to state the ideas of how social media makes users feel lonely and creates distractions. Instead of using various sites, the internet, and texting to connect between one another, they all make it easier to live within a virtual world.
Can You Find the Hidden Meanings in These Sports Logos?
Have you ever really taken a good look at your favorite sports team’s logo? Or, maybe you’ve spent far too much time glaring angrily at your least favorite sports team’s logo as you jab at its effigy with voodoo pins. Either way, it should come as no surprise that many of the sports teams out there have some form of hidden message or symbolism that represents part of the heritage of either the city, the owner, or any other piece of its history.
