Dear Cancer, You Suck

I dream of the day that you do not exist

Dear Cancer, You Suck

Dear Cancer,

F**k you. Usually, I would apologize for the vulgarity but not this time.

This is for the millions of life taken too soon,

This is for the millions still living in pain because of the lives that were taken,

This is for the millions currently fighting for their lives,

I have never hated one single thing so much in my life. You give me so much anger that has nowhere to go. You come into someone's life and just destroy until there is nothing left but pain in the hearts of people who deserve so much better. You cause pain to people who deserve to find nothing less than serenity. You bring sadness and anger to the ones who deserve happiness and eternal peace. Those who lose their lives to you deserve to be alive, and you, you should not exist. You deserve death, not those innocent souls.

I have watched you come in and destroy so many lives. I have watched you impact my friends, I have seen you impact my friend's loved ones, and now I watched as you took the life of one of my loved ones. As much as my heart aches for my loss, it is also aching for everyone else because it just is not fair. It is not fair that you get to come out of nowhere and destroy the lives of people who worked so hard to live that life you took. It is not fair that you impact lives of people that deserve a life full of happiness and you turn their lives to a life full of struggle.

There have not been many moments in my life that I have doubted God, but you cancer, you make me doubt God. Why are you on this earth? Why would God create something so horrid and dreadful that takes the lives of innocent kind souls? Why would He allow you to take all those lives? Why does He continuously allow you to hurt millions of genuinely loving people?

I always try to look on the bright side, but with you, there is no bright side. You come into innocent lives and suck all the happiness out of those lives until you have consumed it all and leave amazing souls with only pain and despair. It is unnerving just to think about the millions of lives you have ruined. You are a terrible, disastrous, and hideous disease. I can only dream that one day you will not exist.

I dream that one day something will come into this world that can heal all the hearts you broke. I hope that one day, everyone who has lost a loved one to you gets to be reunited with that loved one. I wish for the day that all the pain you are currently causing and all that pain you caused in the past becomes non-existent. The day you are gone is the day I am the happiest girl alive.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.
