Dear Mommy,

Dear Mommy,

I love you

Dear Mommy,
Harley Ann Kearney

I seriously never give you enough credit. For dealing with my mental breakdowns cause I am overly stressed, my boy problems, then the weekends I want to go to NYC/ New Jersey, because why not? I enjoy every second we get because I feel we are not getting enough time anymore.

I feel I am losing time with you. I feel like I need more. I should work less or go to school less, to be able to spend more time with you. And I know that as time passes I will get fewer days with you. I will get busier with my own life.

I am treasuring these moments, the home facials, weekend getaways, the car rides, the Tuesday Domino Pizza nights, the cold pool nights, I am putting them in my back pocket of mine to remember them.

I remember growing up you weren't always around, you were always working.

You would get home, you would yell cause the dishes were not done. You didn't always make it to the school events. Then, I would get a little upset, I wish you were there more, I wish you did not have to work as much. But looking back, you gave Dea and I the best lives we could ever imagine. You made sure we always had food in our stomachs if that meant you ate one less meal. You made sure we had clothes to wear, a roof over our heads, you made sure we were happy and healthy. You made the sacrifice to get up deal with the cards you were dealt with and take it head-on. If that meant working a couple of extra hours to pay the mortgage you did it. I did not realize it then, I was young, I was upset. Realizing it now, you made the moments we had together, timeless and special. If it was just watching CSI all three of us. Or going to the laundromat to wash our blankets. You made it an adventure, a memory, you made it special and timeless.

Mommy, I appreciate all the money you have spent. All the hours you lost sleep cause of me. All the tears you cried, the help you gave me. I can never thank you enough mommy. You are the best mother I could ask for. I can't imagine my life without you, I do not want to, cause when I do I cry. I love you more than anyone in this world.

I can't wait to continue driving you insane, making you smile, making you proud.

You have sacrificed more than I could ever ask you for. You have made this earth a better place with your smile. With your laugh. You are my biggest blessing. You're my best friend, I will continue saying thank you, continue saying I love you.

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.

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.

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.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

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.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

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.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.
