How To Better Yourself

Don't judge other people.

How To Better Yourself

As a kid I was bullied. From kids moving their chairs away to not sit near me, to being called medusa cause I was "so ugly I turned everyone into stone", to knowing that if I got chosen to go up to the board, people were gonna start laughing at me for one reason or another. When I got to college, the bullying stopped. It got better, I became confident, and I watched the people that once bullied me change into adults.

As I look around now, I realize how much hate there is in the world. People are so opposed to anyone that's different than them. Someone at work told me she was not okay with anyone being gay. She said that girls should not buy boys clothes. But why? What makes you view the world like this? Why must you have an opinion on other peoples lives? If what someone decides to buy has so much effect on your life, you must be doing something wrong. If you must have these opinions keep them to yourself.

There is still racism in the world. I hear people in the streets talking about sending people "back" to other countries, and I watch the racism spewing from my television as the presidential debates occur. I read in the news every day how another person has been murdered due to racism. When will this end? When will people stop thinking that different is bad?

I'm not claiming to be a perfect person. I'm not saying I've never judged anyone, or thought differently of people who do things that I don't agree on, but the world would be a much better place if we just stopped letting other peoples choices bother us. People are taking their own lives, because of the lack of support they have in this world. You could be the one to make a difference, and save a life, just by being there and giving your full support. If we support everyone's choices in life no matter what, we can stop all of the hate in the world.

Love, is love. Love everyone no matter what. If you share the love you have in your heart with other people, they'll have more love to share as well.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
