NFL: Why I Do Not Care

Why I couldn't care less about the NFL.

NFL: Why I Do Not Care
Wall Paper Cave

Well it is that time of year again when the Super Bowl is coming up and teams are reaching the end of the playoffs. Personally I look forward to this time of year, not because I like watching football but because I no longer have to endure watching the sport for a few months. I'm sorry but I do not see why these guys get paid millions of dollars to play this sport. Often times the players that get paid the most are the ones that get hurt the most or really are just not that good. Now I am not saying I could play football any better, in fact I know I would be terrible but I just hate seeing these athletes getting paid so much for really not doing a whole lot.

Typically I only watch the one game a year and that is the Super Bowl and honestly I only watch it for the halftime show and the commercials. I couldn't care less about the teams that are in it especially since most of the time it is the same teams like the Steelers, the Patriots, the Packers, the Saints, or the Cowboys. Some of these teams are made up of people that honestly are not the greatest people or they have been surrounded by scandal whether in their professional career or their college career. I also think that the NFL season goes for way longer than it should. I mean most sports seasons go longer than they should.

When I was younger I would watch football but that is because it would always be playing on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays because of my dad. After I lost my dad football would only be played on Sundays and it was usually either the Colts or the Bears in my household. Now that I have gone off to college I just do not watch football. Its usually playing at work but I do not really watch it. In other words football in the NFL is just not interesting to watch anymore.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
