10 Signs You Are a True Gemini

10 Signs You Are a True Gemini

You're a lover and a fighter.

Geminis are born May 21st to June 20th, and are symbolized by the Twins. Although Greek mythology says the Twins are two brothers, sons of the Queen of Sparta, astrology depicts the twins as an angel and a devil, or, two sides of a face, thus implying a dual or split personality. The Gemini is an air sign, which is connected to intelligence, and ruled by the planet Mercury, which is connected to effective communication.

1. You’re two-faced.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Geminis are inherently two-faced, meaning we are both, as well as either or, an angel and a devil. We can easily choose to be one or the other, if we want, depending on the situation. While we are an angel to some people, we can be quite the devil to others, and we can change in a second’s time. This is why Geminis are known as two-faced: one is as sweet as could be, and the other could eat your soul and not even feel bad about it. Geminis are ruthless, relentless, and wear our hearts on our sleeves. We Geminis are very in touch with our emotions, and aren't afraid to show it.

2. People don’t want to get on your bad side.

You are the queen of the cold shoulder, or, in my family, the Sicilian silent treatment. You have no problem cutting people off if they have wronged you or someone you love.

3. You are fiercely loyal to those you love.

You have no fear in sticking up for your loved ones, and you will surely defend them before you defend yourself from petty gossip. While you let people gossip about you unbothered, the second someone says the wrong thing about your friend, watch out!

4. You take relationships very seriously.

You fully invest your whole heart and soul. While this is great for healthy friendships and relationships, it can harm you when invested in the wrong person. This means us geminis are easily heartbroken, because we never hesitate to give so much to someone who turns out to be not the person we thought they were. We like to see the best in people, and believe that humans are naturally good. Often this comes back and bites us.

5. You are a communication queen.

For this reason, people often come to you for advice, and to mediate tense conversations with others. Although un-apologetically biased, you are great at seeing both sides of a situation and providing a fair middle ground. You also have a propensity to see someone’s true colors upon first impression.

6. You are a social butterfly.

While not always the most likable person in the room, Geminis are sociable people who enjoy good conversation and company, but just as much appreciate some alone time for deep thinking.

7. You seek solace in other people.

Because the Gemini sign is the Twins, we may feel as though we are missing our other half. This makes life a search for someone or something to make us feel whole. We appreciate loving and being loved more than we do being on our own. Although very independent, Geminis would rather have a companion along the way.

8. You overthink… a lot.

Geminis are known as intellectual and clever people, which is good in most cases (you're probably a good student and a good worker) but we have the tendency to overthink. Our minds sometimes work overtime, leaving us feeling stressed about things we can and cannot control in our lives. And Geminis like to be in control.

9. You're not afraid of a good fight.

Geminis are headstrong, and confrontational, because we stand up for what we believe in and what we think is right. We will never back down from a fight that's worth fighting. Geminis thrive on conflict, it keeps life interesting!

10. You hate just as passionately as you love.

You have a burning fire inside of you, and are intrinsically motivated to use it to the best of your advantage. You are fiesty, with a fiery spirit, with the power and the desire to change the world.

Things To Know Before Dating A Firefighter

You'll learn how to tell the difference between different kinds of sirens.

There are just certain things you are going to want to know before dating a fireman. In my experience, I had to learn along the way. But at the end of all the calls, constantly smelling his gear in the car and sometimes even cancelled plans, I sure do love my firefighter!

You were promised a list, so here it is:

1. If they are even within 20 minutes of the station, they will always leave you to go on a call.

No matter the circumstances, if you have a fireman on your hands, he will jet to the car and be on his way.

2. Meeting nights are not something you try and fight with them about. They are going to leave and you do not have to like it because it wasn't up to you anyway.

I have learned that these nights are not optional. Yes, other people miss them, but not my firefighter.

3. No matter where you are or what you're doing the minute they hear a firetrucks horn, they're looking for it and hoping they're not missing anything good.

You will learn the lingo. Structures, fully involved (the good stuff) smoke alarms, cat in a tree (ehh I mean they are fireman...soooo still good stuff).

4. They know the exact difference between an ambulance, cop, and, of course, a fire truck siren.

Which means that you will have to learn, too.

5. You’ll have to accept that when he has to do hall rental cleanup, you're going with to help.

You fold the chairs and he stacks them. And Im talking at like 12 a.m.,1 a.m.

6. When you come around the firehouse, there will be jokes made and they'll mess with him about you or even you about him.

Honestly it's a giant bromance going on and they prey on this kinda stuff.

7. At first, you won't really have a name to the fire guys. Until you're around long enough.

You'll just be Boyfriend's name's girlfriend.

8. The fire pager goes where he goes.

Next to the bed, in the car, next to your bed, your living room, EVERYWHERE. And even if it's not the real pager, it's the dog app that I can never remember the name of so dog app it is. (Say that really fast to get the full effect).

9. They will probably wear their station shirt/apparel at least 4-5 days a week.


10. If you've got a good one, you're always put first. The list will always go "You, the firehouse, me, everyone else."

But secretly they always want to put the firehouse first.

11. You will learn and know more stations, trucks, members, and chiefs than you will ever want to admit.

Unbelievably true.

12. When you're driving and you see a fire station, you'll have to look at it.

If its an amazing building, you'll have to remember the name. And then you'll have to tell him about it. And then you've just proved number 11 correct. Add it to your list.

13. Never make plans while he's on a call. You can never know when he'll be back.

Even if the calls are short, they could stay at least another hour washing the trucks and being boys, of course.

14. In case you didn't understand the severity of the first one, if you are on the phone and you hear the pager go off in the background, just tell him you love him and hang up.

Because if you don't, he will. "Got a call, Love you, bye." Mid-sentence is always what you want to hear.

15. You'll never want to watch "Ladder 49" again.

You will cry like a baby and then want to make him quit.

16. Outside of the stations, fireman tend to forget that fire isn't a toy and it's pretty damn hot.

*Playing with the lighter fluid or burning things on the stove*
"No it's alright, I'm a firefighter."

17. You will start your own station shirt collection.

From NYFD memorial shirts, a station from where you're vacationing even acquired old shirts of his, you will have started your own pile of station shirts.

18. You can't get angry or upset when he is unavailable because he's going to go to the firehouse for the fifth time that week, or if there's another fire prevention thing to do.

You can't be mad because he's doing what he loves and also because a man in a uniform isn't too shabby.

There are a lot more things to know before dating a fireman, but the rest you'll just have to learn along the way.

Please, If You're Somehow Still Using The 'R Word'— Leave That Habit In 2018

Come on guys, its 2018. Google a new word.


Maybe it was because I witnessed two boys get in trouble in elementary school for using this word as an insult. Maybe it's because I fell in love with a thing called Camp Able. Maybe it's because one of my best friends is a special ed major. Or maybe it's because I try to be a decent human being. I do not use the R word.

Until this past semester, I hadn't really heard anyone use it often despite one encounter in 6th grade. Most of my best friends I have met while serving at places like Camp Able or Camp Bratton Green where summers are dedicated to people with diverse-abilities. I think having been surrounded with like minded people for so long made me forget that some people still use it as an expression. Let me tell you, it's annoying.

The word itself has been brushed off even in a "scientific" sense. It means to be slowed down, but it has stretched far beyond that meaning and has turned into an insult. It's an insult of comparison. Like any word, the power behind it is given by the user and most times, the user uses it demean another person. It's like when you hear someone say "that's gay". Like, what? Why is that term being used in a derogatory sense? Why is someone's sexuality an insult? Hearing someone use the R word physically makes me cringe and tense up. It makes me wonder what truly goes on in someone's mind. People will argue back that it's "just a word" and to "chill out", but if it was just a word, why not use something else? There is a whole world full of vocabulary waiting to be used and you're using something that offends a whole community. Just because you don't care, it does not mean it shouldn't matter. Just use a different word and avoid hurting a person's feeling, it really is just that simple. There is not a good enough reason to use it.

I volunteer at two summer camps: Camp Bratton Green and Camp Able. If you know me, I talk nonstop about the two. More realistically, if you know me, it's probably because I met you through one of the two. Even before I was introduced to the love at Camp Able, I still knew that this was a word not to use and it never crossed my mind to think of it. The history behind the r-word goes back to describe people with diversabilities but because of the quick slang pick up it was sort of demoted from the psychology world. Comparing someone or something that is negative to a word that you could easily avoid speaks volumes about who you are as a person. The word is a word, but it is subjective in its meaning and in its background.

Just stop using it.

"A few beads short on the rosary"

"On crack or something"
