For The Love Of Fuzzy Socks
Nacirema Johnson

As an introductory piece I have decided to put my opinion on something that I would say is very me. Obviously, you might be able to tell what this weeks little shpeal is going to be about just by looking at the title. Fuzzy Socks.

You heard it here first. Fuzzy socks. As a lover of socks in general, I'd say they are a second favorite to me only to socks that have food printed on them. Fuzzy socks, small clothing articles that can make a huge difference in seconds. Who doesn't love these things. They keep your toes warm on the coldest of occasions, are always soft no matter how many times you wash them, and are definitely the easiest socks to find and match in the laundry. They also make amazing addition to gifts or stocking stuffers (ideas for next holiday season?) Although I may not be able to tell you who hates these, I can with confidence tell you who does love these wonderful creations. Men. *insert noises of amazement and awe here*

That’s right y’all, it is more than just women, young ladies, and girls that love to put their feet into fuzzy socks. Even the “manliest of manly men” like to have the instant soft warm fuzzies of fuzzy socks on their feet. The love for fuzzy socks has no specific market. Who could blame them? Not me, they’re like the best thing ever. I can personally say that on more than one occasion my own boyfriend has borrowed a pair of my fuzzy socks to keep his feet warm and most importantly help him get warmer faster. Basically saving him from the meat locker that is my room at night.

It just kind of grinds my gears that stores and commercial marketing only really make them for women. I mean there should be some made for everyone. So the other day, I did something that I feel to be fairly progressive in defying gender roles. I bought my boyfriend his first pairs of fuzzy socks. I chose the most gender neutral colors I could, keeping in mind his personal clothing choice and put them in the Christmas gift I gave him. His reaction was better than I could imagine, and now he doesn’t have to take all of mine lol. That night he slept with very warm feet.

Just as anyone should be able too. Hey, who knows maybe I’ll start a line of fuzzy socks for all fuzzy sock lovers (probably not but it’s a good idea). However, I do believe they should be made for all cold feet to wear, Fuzzy socks for all!

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
