No More Stranger Danger

Hey, start spreading love and speaking your mind! We all start off as strangers.

No More Stranger Danger
Julie Vellender

Other strangers that are on street

So many we pass and never meet

Mama always said do not talk to strangers

Strangers are the ones who put us in danger

Not even recognizing the stranger in the mirror after it all

We can barely fake a smile in this war zone we are attending called Cinderella's ball

Unsuspected people commit these petty theft crimes

But it is all out of desperation of looking like a dime

But we never really do look at the deeper reason

So do not judge until you ask others about their season

What about the crippling weather that makes your mind barricade words

From the swift and scary winds do you draw out your sword

Do you raise all hell fighting or just lie being eaten by the wolves

In today's society, do not bother trying seeing what "back in my day" solves

Times have changed and will never be the same

It is suddenly all about playing these games

Maybe if we were nicer to the strangers on the street

There would be this possibility of our hearts skipping a beat

Isn't all everybody wants to fall in love

To fall in love, we have to get up and feed the doves

No more worrying about how you are seen

Make a difference in the way of being open with your heart, so gleaming

Do not focus on the makeup of a dime, instead give out your extra dimes

Perhaps these simple changes will lead to less crimes

Stand tall and speak your mind

There is no need to keep your words in a bind

Do the right thing because your Mama told you that too

Do not forget that you are a stranger to many people too

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
