My Grandma Was My Favorite Person

I miss her everyday.

There was just something special about her. She was full of love and happiness, she radiated with positive energy constantly. If you looked up Grandma in a dictionary, you'd see her face.

Grandma's house was notorious for having cookies and all the good snacks. If I was hungry at home, it would be the “wait for dinner" talk. At Grandma's, that wasn't the case. She was lenient and let me eat cookies and chips at two o'clock.

She was so pure, she did not have a bone of malice or an ounce of negativity in her body. My cousin and I used to make her sit through talent shows, dance routines, and many games of house, and she did it with a smile. We once had a “sing-off," neither of us can even remotely sing, but we were both sure we were better than the other one. So we belted our hearts out, in multiple songs, and instead of wanting to rip her ears off, Grandma would just sit there smiling.

I miss the feeling of warmth I used to feel every time I talked to her. Some days it's still so weird to process the fact that she is gone. When other people talk about their Grandmas, I often relive these memories and catch myself speaking in the present tense because I'm still not used to live without you.

I can still feel you, in the sun shining on my skin, on the wing blowing against my hands, on the rain falling on my head. I know you're there and I know you're with me, but I miss being able to see you. I miss being able to hear you. I think that's the thing I miss the most.

Your voice always provided me with such comfort and reassurance, it seemed that you always had the ability to mask any doubt you had. I was auditioning for a part in the play, that you and I both knew I was unqualified for: “Don't stress about it, they'll love you, Mar you'll do amazing, okay, call me after."

It's weird having to live my life knowing my biggest supporter is gone, I don't think anyone could ever live up to the spot you had in my heart. It's safe to say you were my person. I think that was obvious to everyone though. The countless hours spent forcing you to be in my music videos, or the times I dragged you with me to the hair salon, the times you would dose off on my shoulder. I miss it all. I miss you.

I hope I'm making you proud. I hope you've seen all that I've accomplished. To my beautiful Grandma, thank you for loving me unconditionally all these years, you are the reason I am the individual I am today.

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.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
