6 Things We All Face When Winter Hits

Winter has arrived, whether we like it or not. Here are some things we all face when winter hits...

1. Saying Goodbye to T-shirts and Shorts


Your closet goes through that annual change of ignoring the t-shirts and shorts, taking them out of your closet for a while and welcoming the sweaters and pants. The more comfort the better. Anything fuzzy and warm is now accepted.

2. Driving in the Ice


This is a special talent that only a few regions of the United States actually know how to conquer. Anyone south of the Mason Dixon probably doesn't even get enough snow or ice to have to deal with this issue. But when it hits the Midwest, we all are forced to scrape ice off our cars and pray we make it back alive.

3. The Struggle to Stay Warm


You try to find many ways to stay warm such as being wrapped up in blankets, wearing fuzzy socks and sweatpants, drinking hot cocoa, or sitting by the fireplace. Whatever works for you.

4. Dressing in Layers


It doesn't even matter how you look, as long as you're warm. You break out the layers, the scarves, mittens, and fuzzy boots.

5. Gaining Weight


The cold weather gives you little motivation to go to the gym. Therefore, every meal is staying glued to you. Although maybe you want the extra weight to stay warm, it happens to us all.

6. The Horrid Weather


When you walk outside you get pelted by the snow, sleet, or whatever cold air is coming through that day. Your face becomes numb and red from the wind.

Stay warm, my friends!

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

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.
