Dear Granny,

Our last hang out session didn’t end as I had planned; you decided to die in my arms, which was not cool! I forgive you though, only because I love you! So as you probably know because, I’m assuming you’re one of my guardian angels (you just can’t get enough of me huh!?) I’m out in Los Angeles pursuing a degree in Fashion Design at this AMAZING school called The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. This is all relatively new to me. 4 years ago I had no idea that I would be in California, let alone learning draping techniques, cut and sew methods, and all the rest of this fancy designer stuff.

It all feels right. There’s this deep knowing within me that this path has been specifically paved for me. When I work on the designs for my clothing company, or when I do sketches, or think of ideas, everything comes to me so effortlessly; I feel like I’m in the flow, or “tuned in, tapped in, turned on” as Abraham-Hicks would say (she is a spiritual teacher who channels). Since we’re on the subject of channeling, it feels like every time I create something related to fashion, or anytime I have a brilliant idea, it seems that you are behind it somehow. I know when you were here on earth, I had no interest in sewing or in fashion at all for that matter, even though that was your life and we were so close. So now maybe since you’re not here this could be our way of staying close to one another; I know how much you loved to sew and to create and now that is exactly what I will be doing. I would have thought Mom, or Auntie M, or Jackie would have picked up your trade, but low and behold it was me. I think it’s ironic and funny because well. there aren’t too many guys in this industry, especially not with backgrounds in football. I hope these girls don’t distract me J but, I’m sure you will be there to ward off any perceived interferences. Hey!, you could be like my fairy god-grandmother. I like that idea!

This whole life and death thing is crazy! I mean I can feel your presence sometimes and it comes seemingly out of nowhere; remember when you decided to show up at my campus tour of FIDM, which caused me to steadfastly proceed to the bathroom and cry in overwhelment... Think that appearance could have waited until later? Just kidding, I was happy to “feel” that you were there with me! You have made me realize how much of a comedy life really is!

I think you set all this up. I think you’re working on my behalf from beyond the grave (que the twilight zone music). I think that you’re “up there” guiding and directing me. I think there is a very big part of you silently dwelling within me and although I miss you very much, I find comfort in being able to feel you with each beat of my heart.

Oh I almost forgot to ask you a coupe questions. How’s the food in heaven? Can you fly? What’s the deal with ghosts and why are they so angry? They can go through walls and levitate, which in my opinion is total COOL! What do you do all day? God is a girl isn’t she?

I love you dearly, and I miss you just as much but I have a feeling that we will become very close during this new chapter of my life. So bye until next time!! Love you, love you, love you!

PS - tell Jesus and Buddha I said, “wasss good!?!?”

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

Picture this, we're settling into our date, the conversation is flowing, we're ordering drinks, laughing, and then it happens... the job convo.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
