Kids Playing on Nintendo DS

With Christmas around the corner, I've been having flashbacks to the gifts I used to receive as a kid. Nintendo DS games were definitely some of my favorite! If you grew up with a Nintendo DS, I guarantee you've played at least one of these games.

1. Nintendogs



Playing this after school was the next best thing to coming home to an actual dog. Name something better than virtual puppy playdates!

2. Kirby Super Star Ultra

I absolutely loved how there was a different helper for every power (and they're all adorable)!

3. Cooking Mama

Cooking Mama was one of the most iconic cooking games out there!

4. Mario Party DS

Playing this on long car rides with my siblings made time fly by! My brother and I got super competitive whenever we played the minigames.

5. Mario Kart DS

Every console needs a good racing game!

6. Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum

Every Pokemon game has a special place in my heart, but this is one I remember playing vividly as a kid.

7. Drawn to Life

Drawn To Life

A game that combined art, stories, and video games was like a dream come true for me. This was by far one of my favorite games as a kid!

8. Brain Age

This is one of the few educational games I've come across that was actually fun.

9. Scribblenauts


This game was all about thinking outside the box and always kept your gears turning. Games like this are why I can think on my feet!

10. Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing let gamers discover a whole new world of little animal friends! I remember legitimately getting emotional when one of the in-game characters had to move away.

11. Warioware Touched!

I think keeping up with this game is where I got my quick reflexes.

12. Rhythm Heaven

I personally never owned this game, but my little cousin let me borrow it once and it's pretty addicting. Also, any game that incorporates music into it is bound to catch my attention.

13. Professor Layton and the Curious Village

This was my brother's all time favorite game. If you're into puzzles and mystery novels, this is the game for you!

14. Littlest Pet Shop: Winter

You were already collecting all of the toys, so buying the game was the logical next step.

15. Purr Pals

This was similar to Nintendogs, except for when you needed your daily kitty fix!

Just looking at these game covers is making me all nostalgic!

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
