5 Thoughts On Sappy Movies

5 Thoughts On Sappy Movies

To have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse.

Sappy movies hold a special place in my heart. I’m not sure if it’s closer to my feelings for all things deeply emotionally and tragic, or all things happy and good (where the unicorns are stationed). Either way, they are somewhere special. The movie always starts off just like school every year. Everything is going great, nothing can ruin life for me at that very moment. Then it turns into an emotional roller-coaster. Pregnant women’s hormones have nothing on a girl that is watching a sappy, romantic movie.

1. You starting thinking how depressingly single you are.

Either cats and dogs are on your Christmas list for the next 15 years, or just until you’ve hoarded enough animals to fill every inch of lonesomeness in your home.

2. You think you will recover after the movie.

The damage has been done and there isn’t enough super glue to recover the pieces of your broken heart. You move on to watch another movie to rip out your heart again.

3. You start dreaming of the perfect guy.

Yes, McDreamy I will be yours forever.

4. Those tears are real.

Those tears are a mixture of sadness for my sorry life and because i’m starting to realize how my life isn’t together at all. You start thinking how you’re over 18 years old and have done nothing with your life. This girl in the movie has her life together. A perfect boyfriend, a great house, amazing hair. Her dog is cuter than a button and you and your piece of pizza are going no where in life right now.

5. You start thinking about what you are going to tell your family at the next family reunion.

Yes, Grandma I’m very sorry I am once again single. I don’t have any plans to get married but I think i’m starting to be content being all alone…forever…maybe. Maybe grandma is right maybe her smelly old friends have the perfect grandson just for me.

Sappy movies can be a very scary ride for girls everywhere. And everyone knows around Valentine’s Day those movies are everywhere. No need to tell you to prepare yourself for this trauma ladies, you’ve already been through it enough times.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

The Bantamweights Move Forward After Dillashaw 1 Year Suspension

What Is Next For The Bantamweight Division?


Shocking news broke last week that former 2-time UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw tested positive it is pretty unclear what is next for the 135-pound division. This was a huge blow to Dillashaw as he announced that the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) found an "Adverse finding" from a test following his bout with UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo this past January. In a bout that was controversial as Dillashaw lost the fight in 32 seconds via TKO.

Following the announcement TJ who has 16 wins and 4 losses in his career also announced he would be vacating the UFC bantamweight championship as it would not be fair to the rest of the division if he held the title while under suspension. The 33-year-old former champion plans on dealing with this recent test failure accordingly as he announced it on his Instagram. Many were expecting a fight announcement involving a fight between Dillashaw and #1 ranked bantamweight "Magic" Marlon Moraes for the title or a rematch with Cejudo rather than a drug test failure.

With the proclaimed greatest bantamweight ever being suspended for 1 year which was retroactive since the time of the bout with Henry Cejudo in January we will more than likely see a new champion crowned before the end of the summer. Though we do not necessarily know who the challengers will be for the title, Marlon Moraes will more than likely be one of the contenders. Moraes is currently on a 4 fight win streak as he protested for a championship bout in his most recent submission victory over #2 ranked bantamweight Raphael Assuncao.

Potential contender #3 ranked bantamweight the "Funk Master" Aljamain Sterling has been on a tear as he is on a 3 fight win streak as his most recent victory was over Jimmie Riveria via unanimous decision. It would make sense to have a rematch between #1 ranked Marlon Moraes and Sterling for the now vacant UFC Bantamweight title as they a both in the right position to fight for the title. The first time these two fighters met Marlon knocked out Aljamain with a knee in the 1st round.

#4 ranked bantamweight Pedro Munhoz put up a convincing performance at UFC 235 when he knocked out former UFC bantamweight champion #6 ranked Cody Garbrandt in the 1st round which was considered fight of the night. There are a handful of fighters that could possibly fight for the vacant title since T.J. suspension. The only problem is it is kind of unclear who it will be.

Former bantamweight champion #5 ranked fighter and commentator Dominick Cruz recently got injured once again as the injury was to his shoulder. He then announced that he is expected to be out for a year. There is not a guarantee when Dominick will be back as he cannot shake off the injuries. Top prospect undefeated "Suga" Sean O'Malley is expected to return from suspension very soon as his suspension will be up at the end of the month. It will be interesting to see where he will fit into the division with T.J. Dillashaw's absence.
