Because sometimes wearing green isn't enough

10  Irish based movies for St.Patty's day
Irish Channel

St. Patrick day is a holiday loved many, myself included. Everyone will wear green and if they are over 21, drink green beer. Here is some movies to watch St. Patrick's day.


This movie is an example of cheese to the extreme. It has Jennifer Aniston in one of her first movie roles. It spawned many terrible sequels.

2. The Luck of the Irish

This is a movie from many peoples childhoods, that nowadays makes you go "huh?" when you read the plot. A link from Wikipedia can be found here. Read the plot and just laugh at it.

3. Once

Once is a musical movie that has great music . It was on Broadway a couple of years ago. If you're looking for a modern love story this is it.

4.The Quiet Man

The Quiet Man tells the story of a American man fight for his love, literally. It has John Wayne in the movie. That is all I have to tell you.

5.The Secret of Kells

The Secret of Kells tells the story of a monk fighting against darkness. It's something different from your traditional animated movie, a little darker than most. It was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars.

6. The Gangs of New York

If you like bloody and violent movies, this is the movie for you . It has Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis facing off in the classic revenge story with fighting over a women into the mix.

7. The Departed

Just look at the cast list alone at that should convince you .

8. Brooklyn

Brooklyn was the underdog film at Oscars a couple years ago. It seems like the perfect movie to watch if you want a feel good story. It has romance of the American dream, along with love between people as well.

10 . Leap Year

Leap Year throws some gender norms on its head, with a girl purposing to a guy. It has Amy Adams... that's about it for the cast. If you want a movie to take your mind off of stuff for a while, this is the movie for you.

11.Angela's Ashes

Based of a memoir of the same name, this movie tells the story of a man trying to get back to America after having to move in Ireland with his family.

These are my picks to watch movie this St. Patrick day. Enjoy and be safe.

Thanks for reading! :)

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
