Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres in Epic Lip Sync Battle

Why the Lip Sync Battle is one of the best things to happen to humankind.

Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres in Epic Lip Sync Battle

This past Wednesday marked a new historic and beautiful day for not just our country, but for the entire world. On Sept. 9, 2015, two of our world's funniest human beings battled it out in one of the most epic lip sync battles of our time. Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres finally went against one another in this epic form of war. If you didn't catch it, check it out below. It's lengthy, but so worth it.

So if you're still around to read the rest of the article, great! Because now I want to discuss the importance of this phenomenon that is the Lip Sync Battle.

For starters, if you didn't know, the Lip Sync Battle was made most famous by Jimmy Fallon. When he was promoted to "The Tonight Show" after Jay Leno left, he started having these Lip Sync Battles with some of his guests on the show. The segment was so popular that it became worthy enough for its own television show. It airs on Spike TV and is hosted by none other than LL Cool J.

So why should we buy into this form of battle and entertainment? Simply put, it's entertaining. Seriously. It's hilarious. I mean, who doesn't want to see the classy Anne Hathaway swing around on a wrecking ball like Miley Cyrus?

What about the time Terry Crews was one of the worthy competitors? He gave the audience exactly what we wanted. A lip syncing of "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton. It took us all back to a better time when the wonderful comedy "White Chicks" was super popular.

Then there was that time America's sweetheart, Anna Kendrick, showed us her true inner diva by lip syncing to Jennifer Lopez's "Booty." This performance also featured a very special appearance from Jenny From The Block herself. Yeah. That was definitely a good one.

And perhaps, my all time favorite. When John Krasinski did a flawless interpretation of Tina Turner's much hailed "Proud Mary."

So it's pretty much clear how awesome the Lip Sync Battle has become and is. I love it so much that I've competed in a couple in my lifetime (both of which I've won but who's counting?). Go ahead and enjoy my own Lip Sync Battle I did over the summer to Meghan Trainor's "Lips Are Moving."

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
