Dear Sunday, Why Are You Like This?

Do us a favor and change your aesthetic to Saturday Part 2.

Dear Sunday, Why Are You Like This?

Dear Sunday, Why Are You Like This?

Listen, I get that it’s tough to go first (or are you the last day of the week? The calendars have always made that confusing). But, why must you be like this? I just want to have another peaceful day. Why do you have to stride in wearing your Sunday best? Why are you always wearing the Best Elevated Fashion(™) on Sundays? Isn’t that kind of a waste? Sunday Best? More like Sweatpants Sunday, honey.

You start out just fine. Maybe I’ll grab some brunch, or maybe I’ll sleep until 3 in the afternoon. The calm Sunday morning is destroyed by the dark clouds of Sunday evening. You shove the list of things I have neglected to do all weekend in my face. Suddenly, the whole day is devoted to catching up on things no one wants to do.

I’ve been trying to learn some compassion. But, I can’t quite figure out why such a stressful day masks itself as a peaceful one. You force procrastinators to face 12 page papers due in the morning. Why would you do that to them? They just want to procrastinate the paper into oblivion, and you won’t let them. Rude.

Most people I know grumble about Sunday at least a few times a month. Not everyone is a Sunday hater, but most of us prefer Friday or Saturday. Days are not our children, we’re allowed to pick favorites.

All we want to do is be lazy. You might think that it's all we ever want to do. You might be on to something. But that doesn't stop us from feeling unbridled rage towards Everything That You Are. Sunday is the beginning of more work, more exhaustion, and less fun. Didn't you know we all collectively are pessimists? There's not a single optimist among us. Don't even waste your time fact-checking that.

I know, I know, I should probably cite my sources. An informal survey conducted reached a conclusion that you are The Worst. You may try to deflect the blame onto Monday. And you may be right, but then I would have to rewrite this whole article to trash Monday instead. And I’m lazy, so that’s not happening.

Give us those Saturday Part Two vibes, please. That's how to win the weekday game. Rebrand from the end of the weekend to just the beginning. Just change the whole fabric of time, actually. That would be great.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Breaking Down The Beginning, Middle, And End of Netflix's Newest 'To All The Boys' Movie

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
