As a young child, do you remember running up to your mother, with tears streaming down your face, after falling and scraping your leg? Of course, she enveloped you in a hug and made the pain dissipate immediately. Coming home from school after a challenging day, did you curl up into your mother's arms — consequently feeling invincible for the first time that day?

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.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

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

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.
