It's time for us to be better.

16 Pictures That'll Make You Realize How Messed Up The World Is

I'll start off by saying that I by no means know if any of these are 100-percent true. Some are self explanatory, but some could be wrong. I'll have my beliefs and you'll have yours, but you can't deny that all of these will get you thinking. It might even get you mad enough that you'll want to do something about it, and all I have to say to that is–good! It's time for a change.

So now, without further ado, here are the 16 pictures that will make you realize how messed up the world is.

1. We're not the only ones on this planet.

2. Give 'em hell, kids.

3. We're what?

4. The Government seems to have a theme with this one.

5. 100 billion dollars a year corporation, yet no cure? Yeah... Okay.

6. Eating healthier = More money?

7. Throw people in jail instead of teaching them. Because that makes sense.

8. Are. You. Serious.

9. This one is unfortunately very true. (Via an ex-Electronic Media Emphasis)

10. Our education system is SO messed up... S.N.S.

11. Oh, so you got more funding from our test scores? Great, I'm glad. But, what is that teaching me?

12. Not a future anyone wants but, unfortunately, everyone seems to have.

13. Because this makes sense.

14. This too.

15. It's messed up, ain't it?

16. And, the biggest lie of them all: "I am free."

While we are more free than many other countries, which I am thankful for, we are nowhere near as free as everyone thinks, and that makes my skin crawl.

Again, you can take this article however you'd like, not everyone thinks the same as I do, and I understand that. But, you can't deny that this world is a tad bit messed up and it's only getting worse.

All in all, of course there is a lot of good in this world, but even with all that good, the bad shines so, so bright and with that brightness it sometimes gets hard to see the good.

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 Gift Of Basketball

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."
