11 Reasons Why Shakespeare Was Actually WILD

11 Reasons Why Shakespeare Was Actually WILD

  1. HE WAS A FEMINIST! Shakespeare included female characters with very feminist and progressive plot lines.
  2. He would often use sexual innuendos and it can get dirty. He was the KING of dick jokes.
  3. He was Bisexual. Many of his writings referred to multiple men and women in a romantic way.
  4. He invented the original "yo mama joke".
  5. Anne Hathaway was three months pregnant when they got married. Those shotgun weddings aren’t anything new, people.
  6. Nobody knows where he was from 1585-1592. Besides speculation, there are no records during this time of what Will was up to. Maybe he was off taking a break from the spotlight in the Caribbean!
  7. He was friends with members of the royal family.
  8. He was very wealthy and owned much land which was uncommon for artists. BAH BLANG!
  9. He lived a double life. While he was a renowned playwright in London, at his hometown of Stratford, he was a respected businessman and father. Take that Hannah Montana!
  10. Even though Catholicism was illegal during his lifetime, he was believed to be a practicing Catholic. Living outside the law!
  11. He's so cool he got a shoutout in the bible. Since he was kicking it with King James, when the King wrote his version of the bible, the 46th word of Psalm 46 is “shake” and the 46th word from the end of the psalm is “spear”. It was published on Shakespeare’s 46th birthday.

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
