Because I Am Perpetually Single

​I feel like I owe you an apology.

Because I Am Perpetually Single
Huffington Post

I feel like I owe you an apology.
You see, I'm deeply flawed.

I probably won't ever trust you completely.
It's not personal; someone else broke me a long time ago.
I know I shouldn't make you pay for their mistakes, but I'm only human.

I do a lot of innocent flirting, but the moment you take it farther than I'm comfortable with; I won't speak to you for a while or even ever again.
It isn't because I don't like you, or maybe it is.
I just can't allow myself to be an object of sex ever again.
I refuse to put up with disrespect ever again.
My red flags go up the instantly and that a sign I need to leave.

I'm not going to sleep with you, and I'll never send you pictures.
I am more than what I do or won't do with my body.
If I ever feel pressure from you; I'll show you the door.

I know who I am and what I'm worth.
The second I have to question if you know or not is the moment you'll be gone.

I won't blow off my friends for you.
If you want to do something with me, I can't be a last minute thought.

I'm not sure if our relationship will ever grow or go anywhere.
I was married once and it was the biggest mistake of my life, and I never want to do that again.
Not that I didn't enjoy being a wife, but when you've given your best away there's nothing left to give.

I like my independence.
I love not worrying about being lied to, cheated on, or suffering from a broken heart.

I guess the bottom line is, I'd love to go to dinner and a movie, binge watch Netflix, and cook you dinner every now and then, but please don't expect anything more.

I got nothing left.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
