It's Time For Change

5 Reasons Why Change Is Important

I like think of each individual person as a caterpillar in their cocoon waiting to turn into a butterfly. To evolve and to change is a part of life and I think it is a really imperative aspect because without it, the world would be dull. Here are 5 reasons why change is important:

1. It is normal for our routines to change and sometimes that is needed to make life more interesting and to give us that push we need to accomplish goals such as a new work out plan, new diet, new friends, etc.

2. Changing your appearance can boost your confidence. I think that is why I always dyed my hair so many times in college. I always felt like a new and improved person and I liked the power that it gave me. Even getting a new outfit made me feel like I was going forward in life.

3. Change can transform your attitude and your perspective on life. The happier and the better you feel, the more noticeable it is to others. Maybe you are smiling more or you appear to love yourself more--that change can effect everyone around you and that happiness is contagious.

4. Change can bring about new opportunities. Sometimes, things aren't meant to work out the way they should but it doesn't mean that it's going to stay that way forever. For every bad thing that happens, there is always something good that will follow.

5. Change can take you on a journey in life to that brings you to others who you would never think you'd meet. I always look back on situations and think that if it weren't for a simple change of plans, I wouldn't have met some of my friends.

With change, we learn to overcome our fears. When things are new, it is scary and you sometimes want to run, but then you have to tell yourself that this is worth it. as long as it is not hurting you in anyway, embrace the change and push through the emotions you are feeling.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
