Thanks for being awesome, Ellen.

An Open Letter to Ellen Degeneres

Dear Ellen,

I don't really know where to begin but to simply tell you thank you for being you. You bring out the definition of what everyday people should be: happy, funny, and living life to it fullest. All three of these are probably just a little in site into the kind of person you are. You are definitely one special human being. It has always been a dream of mine to meet you or someday be apart of your show, but let's face it... I'm not musically or artistically talented, a crazy athlete or someone with a huge life story. I guess for now I'll have to deal with the fact that I thought it was the coolest thing to come to Warner Brother's Studio, when I took my trip to California back in May, and be within feet of your studio (and where you park, but shh my tour guide said to keep that a secret!). It broke my heart I wouldn't get to see your show, but it was worth the try. But If I ever did get to meet you I'd thank you for 5 particular things.

1)Thank you for being the upmost positive person ever. It's crazy how you never let a soul rain on your parade and always finding a way to smile or crack a joke out of it. You inspire me and many other's to do the same and radiate that confidence you have.

2) Oh my gosh, you are absolutely hilarious. I don't think there's ever been a time where I've watched your show without crying laughing. You know exactly how to make each interview or segment entertaining for all ages and most importantly don't do the same old gossip talk show. So thank you for that as well.

3) The way you always look for good in people is ridiculous. I absolutely love how when someone comes on your show your don't point out their mistakes but instead you pull the good stuff about them and have a good laugh. I wish more people took this look on people because we're all human and make mistakes. So thank you for showing the world that it's okay to make mistakes but everyone has good in them.

4) Your generosity is out of this world. You're always lending a hand to help anyone and everyone. Whether it's charity, or just treating your fans right, you always know what to do to help. If a charity needs something, you're there. If a fan needs you, you're there even faster. Whatever the case may be, thank you for showing people what it's like to give and not want anything back.

5) Most importantly, thanks for being you Ellen. Your confidence, your humor, your dance moves, and your awesome show. You rock my world, and maybe one day I'll be lucky enough to sit in your audience.

Thanks for being the perfect example and inspiration for what everyday people should be.

Peace & Love,

One of your biggest fans

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

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! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

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.

Breaking Down The Beginning, Middle, And End of Netflix's Newest 'To All The Boys' Movie

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

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.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
