Enough is Enough.

An Open Letter to Bandwagon Fans

Bandwagon fans are the scum of the sports world. You know who you people are; you bunch of good-for-nothing, fake supporters that make up a disloyal fan base. Your motives to support a team are unjust due to the fact that “your” team is winning games and have high contention for a championship. A prime example is the people from the metro area that hopped on the Brooklyn Nets bandwagon when the team moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn. The nerve of these “fans” to think that they can join in on decades of tradition, that include good times and bad times, to call themselves loyal because they support a team that got a new location and mediocre players. Let’s see how long they last when the team misses the playoffs, their star player gets traded, and they fall back into the losing ways of the New Jersey Nets, a team that only carried a group of truly dedicated fans before moving. You bandwagons fans have the power to turn a compacted set of dedicated fans into a mass blob of unjust supportiveness and create a sense of confusion when trying to locate the true fan base. Your reasoning behind your so-called supportiveness is porous, as a real fan stands by his/her team through thick and thin.

These type of people can apply to almost anything that is trendy and in-style, such as those damn two-wheel hoverboards. All of a sudden, celebrities all around the country sported this new way to get around. Naturally, the average person wants to join the pack, so they mindlessly spend $800 on this fad, only to realize the high risk of injury and inconvenience as opposed to simply walking. So, there goes a ton out the money out of the window to cling onto the next best thing that comes along. Not to mention, these type of things are only cool for about the first two times you show if off to your friends. Honestly, your friends probably don’t even care and they can see through your bandwagon ways as you only bought it because you saw other people on them, not because you really wanted to buy it. Hopping on the bandwagon can be a lifestyle, as you people blindly support things you really don’t know about.

It must be painful for you to go through your thought processes in that fat head of yours. How can you go through the procedure that runs through your head of “I’m going to root for this team because they win most of their games and have a good shot at winning a championship, even though I’ve only started paying attention to them a week ago and I only know the team’s two best players”? Not to mention that this runs through your head about two weeks before playoff time, only to hear the ear-piercing words come out of your foolish mouth, the six words the bane my existence, “I was there from the start.” You pick a team that has championship hopes, ride the bandwagon until the team is no longer in contention and then disseminate around the league to find that next team to cling onto and still think you’re able to say “I was there from the start.” To put this nicely, bandwagon fans, find a team and stick with them through good times and bad, or leave the sports world alone.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
