Country music is truly monstrous.

5 Reasons Why Country Music Is Actually The Worst

"Don't knock it 'til you try it" is a quote that I firmly believe in. This is also why I despise country music. Once hearing it for the first time, I knew it wasn't the music for me. Country lacks diversity and individuality. All the songs sound the same and all the artists aren't really that different from each other. Whenever I flip to a country station, I feel like I'm listening to the same song ten times in a row because they are all so alike. Here are five reasons why country music isn't all that great.

5. All the instruments are the same.

Guitars, banjos, and drums. That's all that is really needed to make a country tune. This is one of the things that has always bugged me about country music. It never switches up its sound. They always seem to stick to the same old instruments and never try to dive into new sounds. Country doesn't take chances when it comes to the music industry. They play it safe.

4. They always sing about the same topics.

When you hear a country song on the radio, chances are the single is going to mention America, alcohol, or cars. This seems like a trend in the genre, attracting listeners from all across the globe. It's as if country artists know that their song won't be a hit single if it doesn't mention the United States, beer, or trucks.

3. The voices are all identical.

Luke Bryan. Kenny Chesney. Brad Paisley. Toby Keith. All these guys literally sound exactly the same. The artists have that similar "southern twang" in their voices, making all the songs alike. Yeah, they have different vocal abilities, but in the end, their tunes always come out the same. This is a problem for me because it doesn't give me an opportunity to branch out in my music taste because there wasn't much diversity in the first place.

2. The sound never changes

Music is always changing and evolving. The early 2000s were all about R&B. The early 2010s were focused on pop. Today, EDM and Dance are thriving. With country music, nothing has really changed. Maybe more instruments have slowly been added in or the beats have picked up but other than that, it hasn't changed much.

1. It's predictable.

I can tell when a specific guitar riff is going to happen. I know when the chorus is going to start or a beat is going to drop. Country music has become extremely predictable, which makes it unenjoyable as well. As an avid music listener, I'm always up for new tunes and sounds. But country music doesn't seem to change or advance in its sound. In the end, country music gets way more glory than it deserves.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
