Ever since I can remember, I've been a woman of the night. I don't know what it is, but my mind is more active and awake. There's something about the quiet and calm of the night that every night owl, including myself, finds comforting. Here are nine things every night owl can relate to, as told by "Modern Family" (one of the shows we may binge in the late hours of the night).


1. Telling yourself to go to sleep

Come on, brain, it's 12 a.m., and you need to go to sleep. You know you're going to be tired in the morning. Watching that documentary on bananas and reading that article on the Kardashians can wait. Or, can it? No! Snap out of it!

2. That sudden burst of energy

Okay, you haven't slept and it's 1 a.m. Suddenly, I have an idea for a novel and feel more inspired than ever. Wow, I feel so alive! Who needs sleep?

3. Snacking

Well, I'm already up. Might as well get a bite to eat. What sounds good? A granola bar? Chocolate chip cookie? Eh, I'll get them both. I've earned it.

4. Being jealous of morning people

Sometimes, I can't believe that there are people out there that wake up early. For fun. Just because. How does that even work? Do you know how long it's been since I've seen an actual sunrise? I haven't slept at nine since I was in ninth grade.

5. Counting how many hours of sleep you will get

Okay so if I sleep at 2 a.m., wake up at 7 a.m., that's four hours plus one which means 5five... Great. I'm going to have to take a nap tomorrow. And maybe the day after too. It's fine. I'm fine. Who needs sleep?

6. Regret

Okay, so I slept really late. It's all good. I'll sleep really early tomorrow and become a morning person. New year, new me. I may even try yoga. Or maybe, one step at a time...

7. Late night existential crises

What am I doing with my life? Should I try harder in school? I don't text back fast enough. Do I use too many emojis? Who am I?

8. Is something outside?

Okay, so this is nice. Just me, my phone, my room. Wait, is there something outside? I definitely heard something. God, it could be a murderer. Sigh, maybe I need to go to sleep.

9. The morning after

Oy, my head hurts. Why is everybody already awake? Wait, how is it already 11 a.m.? This is why people set alarms.

How many of these did you relate to?

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

5483

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
