I Really Hope God Is Real

I really hope he hears me.

I stare at the keyboard while I write this so I don't actually have to look at the words.

I really want with all of my heart to believe that God is up there with my Granny and Papa, with the two girls who hold a piece of my #CumberlandStrong heart, with the boys who ran their cars off roads at 2 a.m., with the ones who couldn't make it another day living this life, and with everyone in between. I really hope that they sing hymns every day like Granny used to tell me they did. Most of all though, I just hope that God tells them I said hello every night when I remember to say my prayers.

I want to believe that God knows I am trying so hard to believe. It is so hard some days to just know. I want to think about all the happy days with those who are gone instead of the days they left. Most of all though, I just want to think about them every second so they never feel forgotten.

A part of me knows that I will never know 100% for sure, even after all the testimonials I've heard and all the stories I have been told. A part of me knows that God is out there, watching me type this, watching over me every second of every day, but a part of me doesn't. A part of me hasn't forgiven him for taking those I love away from me, but I know I should just move on. I know it's the circle of life.

What does that mean though? "The Circle of Life"- some people only get half of a circle, or a quarter, or a sliver. It's not fair and I can't wrap my head around why some people get more time than others. I can't wrap my head around the fact that I could die tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after and leave my parents all alone. I hope I don't, but I could. I can't wrap my head around the thought that one day my parents won't be here anymore because what on earth would I do without them? Move on.

What is moving on? Moving on indicates that time doesn't stop, but it does. For a split second when you know for sure that they aren't coming back, the world ends and collapses and stops altogether. For anyone who has lost someone close to them, they have felt this dead inside their soul. The world just…stops… Then you're screaming, full blast, and it feels like time is hurdling a thousand times a minute, faster than you can catch your breathe.

So really, I just hope that God comforts the ones who have lost someone today. I really hope that God wraps his arms around the ones who lost their sister today, or their best friend, or their daughter. I just hope that God is real, that he has all the strength in the world to comfort me on the bad days and love me even harder on the good ones.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?


You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.

I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
