I miss him lots

To My Best Friend AKA My Dog
Gina Kelley

Dear Burney,

We got you when I was just 8 years old and the first time I pet you your leg did that funny dog thing when it goes up and down like a bunny rabbit’s. You were the sweetest little thing but somehow in my memory we didn’t become best friends for awhile. You weren’t always the most well-behaved dog. Let us never forget the Christmas you ate the tree, the presents and mom’s stocking. But after awhile you began sleeping in my bed every night and you became my favorite dog/person/companion. You became the most well-behaved, vocal, and loving dog a family could ever ask for. You like to lick all of our hands until we yell at you. You love the balls that have a squeaker in the center and little feet. You have always sat by my side when I’m sick or sad and even watched movies with me all day. You always beg for treats, and still try to get bread and salami whenever you can. You have let me cry on you (quite literally) and let me hug, cuddle and kiss you. You truly have been my best friend for 10 years.

You are such a grumpy old man now (you kind of always were but now that you have the age to back you up it’s ridiculous). I’m sorry that you no longer get to sleep in my bed every night. It makes me a little sad everytime I come home and the white fur has spread a little bit more down your neck and long your back. It makes me sad to see how hard it is now for you to jump on my bed and how tired you get after playing fetch. I know you aren’t a puppy anymore and I’m sad that I don’t get to be with you everyday as you get older. But I promise that mom keeps me updated on all your antics at home. You are still my “most handsomest boy” and the “best stinks” in the world. I love you so much and even though I had to leave to go to school, I hope that you know that I am always thinking of you.

I love you with all my heart and I will be home soon handsome,

Gina Kaye

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.

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.

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.

50 Iconic Quotes From 'The Golden Girls' That Will Always Make You Laugh

"People waste their time pondering whether a glass is half empty or half full. Me, I just drink whatever's in the glass."

It is a treasure trove filled with humorous scenes and situations that will always be relevant to watch. I still rejoice in watching these spectacular women embrace life with full stride and the way they always strive to focus on the brighter side of life.
