Why It Is Important To Be A #GirlBoss

Why It Is Important To Be A #GirlBoss

It is time to take your passions to the next level and become the #GirlBoss you've always wanted to be.

I am the next #GirlBoss...are you?

Sophia Amoruso, the Author of the very famous book #GirlBoss, takes her stand on the importance of being a bad a** woman in the working world against the sea of men.

"Don't let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then let's do this," Sophia Amoruso.

I am here to share and speak the importance of learning how to be a #GirlBoss.

We are taught all the proper manners at a young age, shown the best way to dress and get upset when we chip a nail...yeah right.

It is our time. To all the ladies who feel the passion within their blood and see a path that has been calling your name, it is time to go get it. It starts with learning to grow past our insecurities that have been brought upon us and OWN whatever we have to offer to be a #GirlBoss.

As a woman, it can be difficult to take our potential and expand it out into the world. Your creative and strong mind is ready for you to embrace your power and show everyone what you are made of.

Are you a #GirlBoss already?

Do you work so hard for what you love that you are constantly trying to find new innovative ways to do it?

Is your work never done? Not because you don't complete it, but you love it so much you want to make it perfect, make it be YOU. Is your hustle real? Do you work and work and work until your heels quit too? If you have a dream and you go after it, you mean business.

Are you sharing your journey with others? #GirlBosses in the present are proud and determined to make a name, brand, and life for themselves. Not only that, but they don't want to do it alone. They want support, love and an audience to embrace the hard work they are doing.

You embrace the struggle. The struggle of your dream taking a long, long time. The struggle of late nights, many jobs and always trying to stay ahead of the game.

Any of this speaking to you? If not, no worries you can still become a #GirlBoss as long as you have a goal, passion, and a dream you want to see come to life.

Tips from Sophia Herself:

1. Mistakes will get you everywhere

You need to make mistakes to push towards your dream. You need to constantly be challenging yourself so you grow as not only a person and woman but a leader.

2. Be you

As women, we have the power to be sweet, charming and caring. When people see the other side, the strong and brave, it is empowering and not only will you look fearless but you will feel fearless.

3. Work hard and work harder

The harder you work for something you enjoy..the more in love you will fall with your passions. What is better than loving what you do?

We all have dreams. We all have goals. But, there are #GirlBosses that push beyond all limits to show their strength and dedication to the world. The world needs more #GirlBosses. I am ready...are you?

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

My Childhood Nostalgia

Straight from the mouths of babes.


Almost all of us as Millenials and Gen Z were raised around technology. We love it and are constantly adapting to the world and new technologies around us. As we age, we sometimes forget about the online games we played and the things that brought us joy on the internet when we were younger. Sometimes, it's great to go back and reminisce on what we used to play. This allows us to see how far we've come and think of much simpler times. These are a few of the most popular online games when we were younger, and how they're doing now, many years later.



Neopets was an online pet trading and adopting game that started in 1999 and rose to popularity starting in 2005. The game had players create their own customized versions of species and interact with others. In 2010, the game slowly started dying off as most of the main fanbase grew out of the targeted age demographic and due to intense hacking. Now, Neopets is still active and there are updates made to the website.

Disney's ToonTown

Nerd Bacon

Not just a place in Disneyland, Disney's ToonTown was an online game where players were able to choose the toon they wished to play as. The MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role-playing game) saw thousands of people play every day from around the world. Released in 2003, the game continued to rise and be played by many and was praised for its ability to allow people to connect with those from different areas of the globe. However, because of Disney wanting to focus it's attention to another game, ToonTown was discontinued in 2013, much to the disappointment to many fans. As a result, people teamed up and created a carbon copy of ToonTown called ToonTown Rewritten a few months following its closure. This version of the game is still open for people to play today!


This game was one that allowed people to explore their inner Nancy Drew. This game had players explore secrets and uncover mysteries. The game was created from the same creator of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and was very popular during the time the books were popular as well. Aimed for people ages 6 to 15, the game continues to have players. Although not as popular as it once was in 2007, the game does have updates and new mysteries uploaded.

Club Penguin

Club Penguin was another on of Disney's online games, and a game that led to the demise of Disney's ToonTown. This game took off, but ultimately end up failing as Disney tried to modernize the game too much, turning it into an app. The over-complication of the game led to many people no longer being interested, and thus Disney closed the online version of the game in 2017. Much like Disney's ToonTown, fans of the game have created their own version, called Club Penguin Rewritten, where people are able to continue their penguin lives.
