Festivus For The Restivus

Festivus For The Restivus

Festivus is a made up holiday from Seinfeld, but it is actually amazing and we should definitely celebrate it. It sounds hilarious and fits right into all the PR about the Holidays in 2017 avoiding religion and scrutinizing materialism.

In the series, George's dad had created this Holiday and he had a very specific agenda for the Festivus festivities. If you plan on celebrating it this year, take notes.

First of all, during Festivus you put up a pole in lieu of a tree. For many millennials this might be the most appealing thing about it because now a days if you put up a fake tree you're not eco-friendly and if you put up a real tree you are infested with little bugs, especially in Florida. A little too environmentally friendly if I'd say so myself. The pole isn't even decorated because holiday materialism is supposed to be dropped in Festivus.

Next, they have the airing of grievances. This is great in the worst way. At this point you share with everyone how they have disappointed you this year. This could be funny, therapeutic, and also potentially catastrophic. I would suggest treading lightly on this Festivus tradition, but you do you.

I don't understand this next one at all, but it sounds entertaining. It's called the feats of strength where HOH is pinned. It sounds like an episode of big brother holiday style. If you're HOH, don't pull a Paul. Make sure all your alliances know from the get go that you are trying to win big brother Holiday edition. Perhaps you could drop that on them during the airing of grievances. This one could also end catastrophically, but lucky for you it's the 23rd and the ER is still open if the tussle gets rough.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
