One of the hottest and funniest comedians around.

10 Reasons We Love Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has been making headlines all year. With her own comedy skit show Inside Amy Schumer and her first movie, Trainwreck, premiering this past summer, she has been on a steady upwards slope to fame. But why is she so popular?

Amy has brought in a new fresh breath of air to the comedy scene. She's like the cool big sister or favorite cousin we all wish we had. While she can sometimes be vulgar and offensive, that's not all there is to Amy. Here are 10 reasons we've absolutely fallen for Amy Schumer:

1. She's not afraid to be herself.

One thing Amy promotes is the importance of being yourself. Even for a laugh, Amy isn't afraid to roll around on the floor, wear ridiculous outfits, or perform in silly skits. She knows that we all need to be comfortable in our own skin and through her television show and interviews, she promotes self-confidence and acceptance.

2. She tells like exactly like it is.

Society has a few problems, some more sensitive than others, but Amy isn't afraid to look them straight in the face and tell them to F-off. She's okay with putting mean and hateful people in their place, especially when they are being disrespectful.

3. She makes people laugh at awkward situations that happen to all of us.

That awful text that you sent or the awkward stain on your pants? Oh yeah, you can believe that Amy has talked about it. She points out the funny and embarrassing situations that would normally turn us the shade of a tomato. There are too many times in our lives that we're going to be embarrassed or feel humiliated, and it's nice to see that sometimes we can laugh at ourselves.

4. She shows that we don't always have to be ladylike.

Are you so hungry that you just want to put your whole face into a bowl of pasta? Maybe just eat the cookie dough straight from the roll? Amy doesn't care. She's all about preaching and doing whatever or whomever makes you happy.

5. She knows that wine can help fix things.

Sometimes a nice glass of wine can help relax you after a long day, and if you want it, then go right ahead and have it. On occasion, we should give into our guilty pleasures, and Amy seems like a true advocate for that!

6. She shows that working out is not always our favorite thing to do.

Working out is hard, but it's important to be healthy. Amy is a beautiful size 6 and isn't afraid to admit that to anyone! But spending 30 minutes on the elliptical for a few times a week? I'd rather not....

7. She expresses that we need to find beauty within ourselves.

As stated before, Amy is a beautiful size 6 and she absolutely rocks it. That woman is dripping in self confidence and it really is infectious. I mean, how else do you explain her comedic genius and being best friends with Jennifer Lawrence?

8. She's a proud feminist.

Amy Schumer definitely talks about important issues. She makes people laugh, but then she makes people think. Not only does Amy understand women, she also understands men. But when people hear the word "feminist" they automatically think something negative. However, being a feminist really means equality for all and Amy is definitely an advocate.

9. She isn't afraid to talk about sex and sexuality.

There is always at least one sexual skit or topic during Inside Amy Schumer or any of her standup shows. Amy is definitely not shy or too afraid to talk about it. She talks about the double standards, and how she is perceived as "slutty" because of her interest in sex. None of us should be ashamed of sex and it should be talked about more often!

10. She's not afraid of being single

While Amy does do some skits about being in a relationship, Amy is currently single and has been for a little while. Many of her skits also talk about the importance of being strong, independent and learning to live with yourself first.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
