15 Reasons Ohio is the Best State

Everyone seems to hate on Ohio anymore except when elections come around. In this list we will look at what makes the state of Ohio far better than any other state.

1. Ohio has the best fans around

This is a bit of s start but to be true we do. Ohio fans are above others. We generally care about our teams and we really just want a national championship. Ohio will never forget the day Lebron James left for Miami and rioting passed through out the land and then when he came back a parade was there for him.

2. We are the true founds of flight... and space

Sorry, North Carolina but you can take that off your license plates. The Wright brothers were Ohio natives and designed and built their plane in Ohio! Not only that but 24 astronauts came from Ohio including the very first man to step on the moon! Everyone seems to joke about what makes your state want to leave but Ohioans see it as flying above the haters.

3. Our form of high comes from major thrills

Nothing compares to the feeling of dropping 120 feet and the spiraling through the sky strapped safely into a car. Ohio has Cedar Point, USA Roller Coast Capital of the WORLD, and Kings Island brings us many thrills and we can't get enough. People travel all over the world to experience what we know too well.

4. We gave you rock n roll

Well, at least the hall of fame, and we are proud of that

5. Our flag is cooler than yours

Let's not try to hide that fact that our flag is cooler than yours because it just is. We represent that American colors and we aren't square like the rest of

6. We determine the destiny of U.S. Presidents

Candidates fight over our state because we determine the future leader of the America. Ohioans are proud to be in the swing-vote state!

7. It is easy to spell our states name with our arms

You only need 4 people and we are cool like that. When I travel to Argentina in January we were welcomed by other staters hating on the shear awesomeness that only our state can represent. I would like to see North Dakota spell out their state in arms.

8. We have buckeyes

Food, foliage, and people. We are all about being a little nutty!

9. We can't be scared

Ohio has so many haunted houses that we were named the most haunted state in the nation. It is safe to say that we can handle most things.

10. Oberlin College was the 1st interracial college

Ohio stood above race and thought everyone deserved an opportunity to have the same type of higher education.

11. We denounced slavery before we even became a state

Even before Ohio was a state they did not stand for slavery. We later went on to help with the underground railroad and transport people to Canada.

12. Our athletes are some of the best in the world

LeBron James, Jesse Owens, Russel Wilson, Jack Nicklaus, Stephen Curry just to name a few!

13. An Ohio native lit up your world

Thomas Edison of Milan, Ohio gave you the light bulb! You can still visit his childhood home and see the original light bulb!

14. We love water

We are surrounded by water and have the Country's Largest Indoor Water Park at Kalahari. We love water and you will often find us near it during the summer!

15. We're better than Michigan

We just are and there is no arguing it and if you want to just remember 42-13.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
