11 Reasons Why New York City Is The Greatest City Ever

I have always thought to myself, "Why do I love New York City so much?" So here are 11 reasons why I love the city so much.

1. The iconic skyline

The skyline is always recognizable and you will always know that it from NYC when you see it. There is nothing like seeing One World Trade Center or the Empire State building.

2. Public transit runs 24/7

Literally, you can get anywhere in the city at any time if the day and it's very convenient.

3. You can eat whenever you want

Restaurants and food stands are open 24 hours so don’t worry about finding a late night snack.

4. You can travel the world in one city

In just one borough, you can try many different types of foods from all around the world.

5. You can go see a show at one of the many theaters

NYC is one of the cities with the most theaters in it. From broadway shows to regular movies, it has it.

6. Central Park

I always love going to Central Park and walking around and seeing everything. I especially love going to the locations where movies were produced in Central Park.

7. Street performers

I love watching people play instruments on the street and in the subways. It makes the subway ride entertaining and fun.

8. Statue of Liberty

I always loving getting on the ferry to go see Lady Liberty! It reminds me of the freedom we tend to take for granted sometimes.

9. City that never sleeps

There is something always going on in NYC and you will never be bored.

10. The place of opportunity

In NYC if you have the drive and motivation you can make it big in the city no matter what it is you want to do.

11. Diversity

In NYC there so many different types of culture and it is cool to see it. You can go to China Town or Little Italy and feel like you are in China or Italy.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

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!
