Ever since my family moved to Pennsylvania I have missed them more than ever. I have a couple videos on my phone that help with the distance, but that doesn't always do the trick. A great thing that helps is music. Certain songs bring back thoughts and wonderful feelings from my childhood. These songs, for the most part, bring back memories of my dad. These aren’t the only songs that remind me of my family, but they are the first ones that came to mind. I love my dad and these songs bring back happy memories of him. I'm sure I've said this before, but music is the way into someone's heart and soul. I love my family and I love these songs. This music brings me closer to the people who are not immediately by my side. When you read this and listen to the songs, you should think of songs that remind you of your loved ones.

1. Heaven by Los Lonely Boys

This is a song that I listened to and sang with my dad when I was little. It took me about 5 years to remember the name of the song so that I could put it on my phone, but I found it. When I listen to it, I remember laughing with my dad and good times.

2. Buy Me A Boat by Chris Janson

Buy Me A Boat is a song that my brother and dad love! I can hear my dad and brother singing it when I think about this song. I can remember standing in line at the water park with my brother and singing the chorus with him about 30 times.

3. Drift Away by Uncle Kracker

This is another song from my childhood but has grown into so much more. If I am riding in the car with my family and this song comes on, we all sing-along.

4. Heaven by Warrant

This is a song that is in my dad's playlist. I love this song and I love hearing my dad sing-along. It may be a tad bit vain, but I like to believe that he thinks of me when he sings the line, "I don't need to be the king of the world, as long as I'm the hero of this little girl."

5. Follow Me by Uncle Kracker

This is another song from my past. (My dad enjoys Uncle Kracker.) I loved singing along as a child. It wasn't until a couple years ago that I understood the meaning behind the song, but I still love the beat and flow of the song.

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."
