We All Have That Favorite Pair of Shoes

The sole. Or my SOLE belongs to shoes. Specifically my pair of low rise combat boots I bought in Zara on a whim.

I'll admit, I wear these shoes a lot. Like almost every day, to class, to parties, to work because they are so damn versatile and I love them. They match every outfit. I'm not kidding. It will be snowing, and I will choose to wear them over snow boots, which is usually a mistake, but I'm willing to make this mistake.

But this is not the first pair of shoes I fell head over heels for. Last year, I had a pair of taller gray velvet combat boots that I wore every day too. Sadly I wore them too much during the winter semester that they were ruined by the end. I had to part with that pair of shoes. They were apart of me. It was such a sad day.

I feel like your favorite pair of shoes end up becoming apart of you. You change your outfit every day, but you can wear the same shoes every day. So they become apart of your image, without them, you do not recognize yourself because they are your staple shoe. These shoes you walk miles on miles in, are you.

I know when my current favorite shoes get worn down, I can find a pair that will replace them. But they are not the same shoes that I originally found unexpectedly. I usually find my favorite pairs of shoes when I'm least expecting it, which makes me love them even more. But I'm sure I'll have a new favorite pair of shoes next year. But I'll always miss and love my old favorite pairs just as much.

If you read this all the way to the end, I'm sure you share this love for your favorite pair of shoes too. Shoes are just special.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
