Make America UNITED, Again

If you want to make a difference, start with you.

Make America UNITED, Again

We are the United States of America, right? If we are supposed to be UNITED, then why are we so divided? It's always Hispanic versus American, black versus white, male versus female, and soon enough, it is going to be cat versus dog. Why are we always so against each other, rather than with each other? Don't you think the world would run a lot smoother if we actually were untied? Right now, we are looking like the "Separated States of America."

Why do we fight against each other, rather than with each other? We feel the need to belittle people based on their thoughts, skin, culture, etc. White lives are not better than black lives. Black lives are not better than white lives. Men are not better than women. Women are not better than men. Americans are not better than Hispanics. Hispanics are not better than Americans. No one is better than the other. I don't care what color you are, how wealthy you are, what you look like, or what you like. Respect each other and fight with each other, not against each other.

If you want things to get better, start with yourself. Be less judgmental of others. Understand that people have different opinions than you do, and accept that! I am a big dog person, but I understand that some of my friends are big cat people. I only used that scenario because I do not want to place my opinions and views on you. I am respectful of my friends and family and all of their opinions. Sure, I do not agree with many of them, but I respect that they believe something different than I do.

If you want to become the UNITED States of America, again, make yourself united with those around you. Respect others. Respect those of higher authority and respect those of lesser authority.

God Bless America.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
