What It's Like Being Friends With A Cancer

You've befriended the most nurturing sign of the zodiac, but what's the real tea on this crabby gal?

What It's Like Being Friends With A Cancer

So you've befriended a female cancer? Or maybe you're cautious to? Here's the truth about having one as a close friend:

1. She's moody.


Number one characteristic anyone can give about a cancer is their moodiness. They're the crabs of the zodiac for a reason!

2. If you guys are true friends, to her, you’re her family.


Cancers protect their family like no other, and if we consider you family, we treat you like you're our blood.

3. She’s honest.


Cancers want the best for our friends, and if being honest means saying something you might not agree with, we do this out of love. No one wants a friend who would lie to them just to make them feel good, right?

4. She may be a homebody.


This differs from person to person, but cancers do enjoy alone time. You'll have to invite this one out if you want to hang with her, but each time you do hang out it'll be well worth it.

5. She gives great advice.


She may not take her own advice, but is great at giving it. Cancers observe before they take action, so she sees things before they even happen.

6. You probably thought she was mean at first.


Being a crab, it's not hard to identify her hard shell, but once you get to know us, cancers have kind personalities.

7. She’s compassionate and empathetic.


If you ever have a problem or need someone to talk to, she will gladly be there for you!

At the end of the day, us Cancers have your best interest and love you with all of our hearts. We may be a little moody and spontaneous, but in the best way possible!

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
