I Love Being A Masshole

It's a lot more than just being a supposed jerk from Massachusetts

I Love Being A Masshole

What is a Masshole? In short, it is a generalized term for a resident of Massachusetts. Many consider Massholes as loud-mouthed, belligerent, and reckless drivers, but I think otherwise. Here is a list of quick facts that sum up what it is like being a Masshole.

We are a people proud of where we come from. We have some of the best education, hospitals and sports teams in the country.

We have four amazing sports teams that have had high and low seasons. Boston Red Sox Baseball, Boston Bruins Hockey, New England Patriots Football, Boston Celtics Basketball and even the New England Revolution Soccer (although to many it does not count). I’ve had the privilege to see the Red Sox, Bruins, Patriots and Celtics win titles (some teams on multiple occasions). I've attended four different parades and celebrated on Boylston Street in Boston, MA with the rest of Sox Nation during the 2013 World Series victory. Like what is said above, people are proud of their sports teams.

We also have all four seasons. As much as I love the cold winters with the snow, there’s nothing like watching the flowers bloom in spring, spending my days off at the beach in the summer and then going on scenic hikes in fall.If there isn’t a Dunkin' Donuts within a mile of where you are I’d be a bit nervous. It is a Massachusetts and New England staple overall. (Also CVS).

Every driver believes the other driver is the worst driver. Especially if it is raining or snowing outside. Every driver becomes that much more crazier on the roads. Very true, we are all guilty of it. There is also no other place I’d rather learn how to drive despite us being “road ragers.”

We come off as cold, hard, and mean people, but in the end we look out for one another and are unique to the rest of the country. We love who we are and where we come from and there is no other place I would have rather been raised.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
