10 Reasons Why Gina Rodriguez Is One Of My Favorite Humans

Continue to slay Gina, and I will do the same.

Gina Rodriguez. One of the women, besides Kerry Washington, I wish I could meet and become best friends with. Her charismatic and loving personality allows people like myself to fall in love with her each day. Every night at 9 I find myself in my room watching her play the role as Jane on the captivating show Jane the Virgin. Seeing her outside of her role continuously promotes girl power and exemplifies a strong, confident woman in all her glory. Gina never allows her confidence to be withheld and makes it pertinent to encourage young women of color to be ambitious and express themselves freely. There are many ways in which Gina Rodriguez produces moments of happiness and courage within in me, however sharing my top 10 hopefully allow you to adore Gina Rodriguez as much as I do.

1. She embraces her body type

Gina is curvy and she is satisfied. Many young girls and women in society are constantly pressured by the societal construct providing females with a certain body type. Gina is revolutionary as she embraces herself for who she is and does not allow society to marginalize her into a certain figure. She is happy, healthy, and loves herself.

2. She spreads Girl Love all day every day

Gina Rodriguez spreads girl love like nobody's business.Whether it is for her other female colleagues in the entertainment industry, or for her fans, she is always showing her support. Gina continuously spreads positivity throughout the female community.

3. She is always ready to give back in any way she can

Gina promotes girl power so much that this year she created the Young Women's Honors. Rodriguez is using this platform to discover, honor and celebrate women who demonstrate confidence, intelligence and leadership, that will inspire others to follow. The official program airs on CW December 19 at 9/8c.

4. She is not afraid to show her goofy side

Her epic lip sync battle performance when she performed "A Milli" by Lil' Wayne and even her interviews on various award shows prove she is not afraid to let loose. If there is one thing I love about Gina is her ability to break down the wall between Hollywood and the rest of the world. Her genuine personality gives us the chance to see Gina for Gina and fall in love with her even more.

5. She is fearless

She can do it all. She acts, she's a business woman, and she boxes. I don't think there is anything she can't and won't do if given the opportunity. Gina is not afraid to fight for herself and speak out against injustice. She even takes on powerful roles such as Andrea Fleytas in "Deepwater Horizon." Gina takes on amazing roles to prove that she can and will do more to make a difference in the world.

6. She is proud of her heritage and embraces it like no other

She is Latina and she does nothing to hide it. The show "Jane the Virgin" revolves around Latin American culture. Inside and out of the entertainment industry, Gina does the utmost to be a positive role model for all Latin Americans who wish to make their dreams come true in America just as she has.

7. She is Jane the Virgin

If you don't take time out of your schedule to watch this show every Monday at 9/8c on CW, you really need to. This show goes beyond the normal with the female lead. It brings forth the main character Jane who not only has a child, but takes on multiple jobs, and is in the process of going to graduate school to pursue a career. Jane proves anything is possible and nothing should stop you from being a bad ass woman who knows what she wants. The show also does more to strongly represent the Latin American culture in all of it's glory.

8. She is always encouraging others

If there is anything that I could love Gina for it is constantly encouraging others. She is constantly supporting her fans and letting us know if no one else is rooting for us, she is. Gina even takes time from her hectic schedule to encourage younger generations they are capable of anything they choose to put their minds to.

9. She got to interview President Obama

Gina Rodgriguez got the chance to speak with POTUS about the most important thing of this year: voting in the election. With both POTUS and Gina, this youtube video honestly couldn't have been any more amazing.

10. She is a boss in her own right

Enough said...

Continue to slay Gina and I will be encouraged to do the same.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
