Why You Should Be a Shawn Mendes Fan

5 Reasons Shawn Mendes Should Be On Your Favorites Playlist

I mean, he is beautiful why wouldn't you?


I don't really know why, how or when my obsession started with Shawn Mendes. It was recently, circulating the release of his third studio album. I had always liked him and thought he was super talented. But now, the whole game has changed. He is BEYOND talented, on the rise to uber-stardom, and honestly, one of the most beautiful and talented singers in the industry right now. Here is 5 reasons why you should love Shawn Mendes as much as the rest of the world.

1. He is beautiful.

There really is nothing to say to this category, other than he is classy and clean looking. I shouldn't even have to explain it.

2. He can really sing

Even from his days on Vine (R.I.P.), he was known for his incredible vocal range. He can really sing, and even live he's great. He really knows how to make good music in a world where everything is super edited.

3. He has amazing collaborations.

Khalid, Camilla Cabello, Julia Michaels. I am sure there are so many more amazing artists he is going to add to this list, but he is collaborating with artists that are in basically the same playing field as him, and they are able to give him the recognition he really deserves.

4. His new album is legendary

His third self-titled studio album was released last month and has not stopped playing on my rides to work, kitchen jam sessions with my friends, and even is the main highlight of my shower playlist. It is so diverse and really shows all that Shawn can do.

5. He is relatable.

Shawn didn't come from a family that had the connections you would think you need to get the big break. He used a 6-second app to rise him to fame. And now he is playing on the radio and performing for the Queen. He has made it.

I love Shawn Mendes, and you should hop on that bandwagon real quick before he's too big to remember us little people.

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
