Don't Stop Me Now!

I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball.

Don't Stop Me Now!

Ever since I had an opinion on music my favorite band was always Queen. The music was electric and relatable, even more now. Freddie Mercury was so confidentially himself without any apologies. He was so open to who he really was, which has always been so refreshing to me.

My favorite song of all time has to be Don't Stop Me Now. This is because of the meaning of the lyrics intertwined with a catchy combination of music and Freddie's one of a kind voice. The meaning to be yourself and don't let anyone stop you is so upbeat and never fails to get me into a positive mood.

So, because of my obsession with this group, I decided to create my own take I use for myself when I listen to this song. This song to me is a constant reminder to succeed in what you want to and remove anything that keeps you from reaching your goals.

Recently, I have found myself slowly flourishing into a more positive and happy person. So, don't stop me now! Don't try to knock me down because I will not quit.

Don't stop me now! I am shining brighter than ever before. I am accomplishing more and more every day and succeeding at life.

I'm having such a good time… with life in general. Life is truly an amazing gift if you surround yourself with people who love and support you and everything you put your mind to.

I have recently decided life is too short to continue to involve myself in uncomfortable situations. I am going to start now and live my life to the fullest, with the most confidence as possible.

So, don't stop me now because for the rest of my life I'm gonna have myself a real good time. This is what I suggest to each and every one of you. Turn the world inside out.

Be whatever you want to be. Be a shooting star leaping through the sky. Succeed at whatever you set your mind to. Be proud of who you are.

Be unstoppable. Be fearless. Be whoever you want to be. Be unapologetically, the best version of yourself.

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."
