What It's Like To Be A Cincinnati Sports Fan

The Bengals have Cincinnati feeling all different types of ways every season, but if you are from Cincinnati, you know you can only be a Bengals fan or else you can leave (especially if you are a Steelers fan).


Here's what it looks like to be a Bengals Fan:


Getting ready for the season has you like:



When the season starts and things are actually going well and everyone's just like:


Then a Browns fan tries to tell you they are the better Ohio team:



But suddenly an important player gets injured and you just sit there and think about how bad life is like:


If you are a true Bengals fan you know we have high hopes the Bengals season will go well, but when they start going downhill again, the let-down is harsh:


But then you realize that at least you aren't a steelers fan:



At this point, all the non-loyal Bengals fans come out acting like one bad game makes us the worst team in the NFL like:


But all the true fans are standing back like this, even when we don't get past the play-offs. Maybe next year.



When the season ends and spring rolls around, it's a whole new ballgame (literally) and the Reds got you feeling whole new type of way:


Opening Day is basically a holiday for Cincy sports fans. You have to go all out in Reds' apparel because we just love the redlegs so much.


When you finally get to the ballpark and you spend an obnoxious amount on Skyline coneys because is it really a baseball game if you don't?


You also spend an obnoxious amount of money on a single beer because what's a baseball game without a nice brew in your hand to cool you off?


And after a couple nice brews these are your seven favorite words to hear:


Then when the summer is over everyones just like, "Wait, the Reds are still playing? What?"


But no matter what, you will be a Reds fan for life

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.
