Listen To 'Exhale' By Sabrina Carpenter, And Exhale

About a month ago one of my friends sent me the song "Exhale" by Sabrina Carpenter, and I didn't think much of it. I played it in the background while I cleaned my room and then skipped to a new song. I didn't take the time to appreciate the song, and I really should've.

A few nights ago I don't know what hit me but I just didn't feel like myself, I was in a weird mood. Music is therapeutic to me, I feel as if it gives me a voice when no words are adequate to describe my emotions. This song was buried deep on my Spotify account but wound up playing for the rest of the night.

The song has a calming sense to it and is all about just taking a moment and actually breathing. The song makes your mind focus and I felt as if a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. The song isn't one of those sad songs you blast when you need to cry or one of those bops you scream to in your car. It's a song you listen to when you feel stressed or just not a hundred percent yourself.

Think about your life, where you are. Who you are, and most importantly how far you've come. Look around you and stop and smell the flowers. Know that even if things don't feel okay, they will be OK. Know your worth, your importance in this life, and that when it becomes too much you can sit back and exhale. Calm down and breathe.

This song allows me to open my mind, to reflect on all that has happened and process it. It is about the weight of the world and how at times you feel as if everything is happening too fast. Life can be stressful, no one has had an easy journey, and you are allowed to take a step back and catch your breath.

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.
