March has got lots to offer!

10 Things To Look Forward To This March

Each month, I've compiled a list of things to look forward to. Here are some of the best (in my opinion) things about March!

1. Women's History Month and International Women's Day


March is Women's History Month, and more specifically, March 8th is International Women's Day! With the rise of feminism and the #MeToo movement, there is no better time to band together and support your fellow woman!

2. Pi Day


March 14th is also known as Pi Day because of the date's correlation to the most popular never-ending number of the mathematical world: 3.14159265...and what better way to celebrate Pi Day than by eating pie!

3. The Ides of March


The 15th of March is also known as the Ides of March. This was an important date in the Roman calendar, partly for financial and religious reasons, but also because of the infamous assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC.

4. St. Patrick's Day


March is mainly known for St. Patrick's day, which falls on the 17th. The Irish have celebrated for more than 1,000 years in remembrance and celebration of their patron saint Patrick, an important figure in Christianity. The clover is another prominent symbol for a similar reason because of its resemblance to the Holy Trinity, (the three leaves), which is why wearing green is a popular tradition.

5. Daylight Savings Time and Spring Equinox


The 21st of March marks the first day of Spring! Even though Oklahoma isn't at all predictable in terms of weather, we can at least count on a few more warm days, some gentle sun, and fresh, green buds on the trees. Daylight Savings Time begins, too. Though you do lose an hour of sleep (which I notice all too well), the days are longer and brighter, which makes for an overall happier mood.

6. Aquamarine


January has the garnet, and February the amethyst. March has it's own birthstone as well - aquamarine! This transparent light-blue, sometimes blue-green, gem is said to protect soldiers in battle, foster young love, and rekindle stagnant marriages.

7. The Daffodil


Each month has a gem stone and each month has a flower. March's flower is the daffodil, also known as the narcissus or the jonquil. This bright yellow flower represents playfulness, friendship, and rebirth.

8. Beer (bonus points if it's green!)


Since each month has its own birthstone and flower, I've decided to add a signature drink as well. Considering the St. Patrick's day traditions and activities, it only seems right that March's drink should be beer. If you want to be extra festive, make it a green beer!

9. Spring Break!


For most of us, spring break is during the month of March. So, get ready to pack your bags and either go home to relax or travel far away for a new adventure!

10. Kite Flying Weather


March is also known for its very windy weather- which has been very clear here in Norman in the past few days. The wind patterns change and are more drastic due to warming from the sun, so it's all for the best. Grab a kite and make the most of it!

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
