For The Love Of Fuzzy Socks

No, they are not just for girls.

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!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
