There are a lot of things in this world I can handle, mosquitoes are not one of them. The list of things I would rather deal with than those devilish little bugs is long and wordy, so here's the short version.

1. Getting a brain freeze from eating ice cream too fast

I hate brain freezes with a passion, but I hate those stupid bugs more.

2. Getting cut off in traffic

Bonus point if they're on their phone.

3. Getting stuck in the slow line at the grocery store

I enjoy getting stuck behind Martha and her 27 cans of cat food as much as anyone, but I would rather do that all day than sit outside in the evenings and become a meal for the bugs,

4. Stubbing your toe

And in the dark at that.

5. Realizing you have a test when you walk in the room

I will take all the pre-cal and chemistry you can throw at me over the mosquitos any day.

6. Being out of gas when you're running late

My hatred for pumping gas at shady stations at five in the morning doesn't even come close to my hatred for mosquitoes.

7. Having your card declined in a busy line

It's embarrassing and time consuming, but has nothing on the little blood sucking buggers.

8. Getting sunburnt

Unless severe blistering is involved, I would rather deal with red itchy, burning skin than those bugs any day of the week.

9. Finding the perfect shirt and then it not fitting

A truly heart breaking pain thaws nothing on the demon bugs.

10. When the next shift for work shows up late

This one is actually almost a tie, but at least you can leave and ignore your awful/late coworkers. Bug bites itch for days.

11. When your food comes out wrong at the restaurant

I would eat mushrooms in my pasta everyday if it meant I never had to drown myself in bug spray again.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
