Paul Walker Set Our Standards For Men Too High

Sorry, Boys, I'm Picky About Guys Thanks To Paul Walker

He melted my heart while other guys turned it ice cold.


Anyone who knows me knows I'm infatuated with Paul Walker. Yes, some seem to think I'm a bit crazy because I'm basically in love with someone who I've never met nor never will get to meet. Being a hopeless romantic isn't easy. I'm not the only girl out there who's hopelessly in love with Paul. What makes him so special anyway?

To start, just look at him. He's got the look that Hollywood pays for and women lust for. What gets me the most is his eyes. His eyes are as deep and blue as the ocean he loved. They say the eyes are a window to the soul, and when you look into Paul's they show a soul of absolute purity and honesty. I'm not saying you have to be pure in order to be relevant to me, but I want my guy to have a soul that compliments mine. Someone who strives to always do good, as Paul did and often said to everyone he knew. A guy who will push me to be the be3st version of me is what any girl deserves. I also love his hair, regardless of whether it was cut short or was still long (gotta love the hippy Cali vibes his long hair portrayed), it always looked good in my book.

He's a family man. From day one, Paul has always had such a strong connection to each family member, especially his youngest brother Cody. I'm extremely close to my family as well, and I don't know if I could ever be with a guy who didn't share close bonds with his family. I've seen how Paul was with his family in "I Am Paul Walker," and I've seen him with his "Fast and Furious" family. The way his friends and family cherished him is how I want my guy's friends and family to be. It's hard to imagine how some guys can treat a girl so badly, yet treat his mother or his sister like a princess. Often, it's easy to figure out how a person will be based on their friends and their actions. Seeing a guy in his element with his buddies by his side is the best way to see how he really is.

I don't have to know him to know Paul was a passionate person. He saw the effects of the earthquake in Haiti in 2009 and found a way to get there and help, even creating Reach Out Worldwide to aid the cause and any future causes. It didn't matter how dangerous it was, he knew he wanted to go and help. He was also passionate about the ocean, especially the sharks that live in it. His safe haven was the ocean, where he could go back to his roots and just surf without the pressure being a celebrity places on a person. He's always loved nature and even contemplated ending his acting career to become a park ranger. Ironically, I wanted to do something along those lines by becoming involved in Wildlife Biology. Plans change, but my passion for the natural world will always be a part of me, just like my love for reading and writing.

To find someone who is passionate, whether it's about the ocean or cars or even something as simple as football, is an important quality. A guy that can show me what he's passionate about and teach me why it's so important is very attractive. If you can't be passionate about things, how can you be passionate for a person?

Finding a guy who is exactly like Paul Walker in both looks and personality is probably next to impossible. I may find someone who has similar physical qualities, but the personality is one that repulses me. Ultimately, I know I'm picky, and I used to feel ashamed of this since I wasn't giving certain types of guys a chance. However, I've realized that it's OK to be picky. Why settle when I know that I deserve someone just as amazing as Paul Walker? I know my worth, and I know the right guy will come around. I hope that he shares in those qualities Paul possessed, like kindness, loyalty, humbleness, and love for everyone and everything.

Kim Kardashian West: Attorney At Law

People are underestimating her, much like how Warner Huntington III underestimated Elle Woods.


If you've been paying attention to social media, then you may have noticed the little announcement that Kim Kardashian West is participating in a 4-year law apprenticeship with the intention of taking and passing the bar by the end of it. Yes, you heard that right. THE Kim Kardashian. Armenian bombshell, reality show star, businesswoman, and most importantly, the most famous crying meme you'll ever see around.

I'll be honest with you, I don't particularly like the Kardashians. I used to watch their show religiously, but then they got super into promoting appetite suppressants and waist trainers in their social media and I wasn't about that unhealthy body-image life and I stopped following them. However, I do have a certain level of respect for her and how good of a businesswoman she is, because as much as people hate her, they can't deny that she has an empire built around her, no matter how superficial and expensive it is.

Beyond all of that, a lot of my respect for her comes from her and her husband Kanye being loud and unsubdued voices on Criminal Justice Reform. Many people have heard about Kanye's unabashed support of Donald Trump, but putting those feeling aside (however hard they may be), much of what Kanye has done by schmoozing up to Trump, is bring attention to the bigger picture of our broken justice system.

Back to Kim, in May of 2018, she went to the White House and spoke to Trump about prison reform as well as the possibility of pardoning Alice Marie Johnson. One week after her talk with Trump, Johnson was pardoned from a life sentence and was set to be released from prison after serving about two decades for a first-time drug offense. It was this instance that really drew Kim towards law.

This past week, Kim announced that she was going to become a lawyer and since then I've heard many jokes and comments about her and these particular ambitions. These comments mostly come from people who are not of color. These comments come from people who don't understand the hardships that this justice system imparts disproportionately against people of color. These comments come from ignorant people, but I get it. I was taken aback by it too. However, she is using her money, name, and fame to do some really necessary good in this world and for that I applaud her.

So join me in welcoming and wishing her the best at using her fame for something good. Kim Kardashian West, Criminal Justice Advocate and Lawyer.
