So what if he's not tall, dark and handsome.

16 Reasons Why Jack Skellington Would Be The Perfect Boyfriend

We all love everything Disney, especially around the holidays. One of my favorite movies to watch for Halloween and Christmas is hands down, “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Jack and Sally’s love story gives all of us some serious relationship goals. Sally is definitely one lucky lady and here are a few of the many reasons why!

1. He's ambitious.

This is a man who knows what he wants. I mean the guy stole Christmas to fulfill his dream! Granted there was that whole kidnapping debacle, but let's not think about that.

2. He's a sharp dresser.

Just look at those outfits. How many guys have you dated who are that well put together all the time?

3. He's a King!

Seriously, this is a no-brainer. He's not a prince like those Disney boys; this man is a king in his own right, ladies. He doesn't need a lady to get his crown, and he doesn't pretentiously wear one around all the time.

4. He's a hero.

Not only did he save Sally and Sandy Claws, but he also saved Christmas, even if it was his fault in the first place. Don't forget he also took out Oogie Boogie in the process, saving children everywhere from nightmares.

5. His dog.

Don't lie, you know Zero is cute. He gives you some serious dog envy.

6. He knows how to throw a party.

Look at that intro scene! Yassss everyone rejoice! The Pumpkin King is here

to grace us all with his presence!

7. There is a Hot Topic collection with his face on it.

Hot Topic, which is already full of clothing featuring your favorite Disney characters, now has "The Nightmare Before Christmas." You can buy an entire wardrobe and accessories of a wide variety with Jack's face on it. Major plus, it won't be as weird as you putting your real man's name or picture on a shirt.

8. He can sing and act.

Danny Elfman really did Jack justice with those vocals.

9. He can admit when he is wrong.

I think everyone can agree that we could all learn a thing or two from that.

10. He's intelligent.

This isn't a man who would refuse to ask for direction, ladies. He assembled an entire science lab just to understand Christmas magic.

11. He knows how to delegate.

There is only so much Jack Skellington to go around. He didn't exactly make Christmas all by himself! He definitely couldn't go get Sandy Claws along with preparing for Christmas in two months time!

12. You wouldn't get bored.

Jack knows when he needs a change. He also knows when it's time to throw that idea right out the window, thankfully.

13. He could scare away all of your crazy exes.

That guy who is still texting you six months after the fact? That won't last long with Jack!

14. He's loyal.

Seriously, don't mess with his friends. Just don't.

15. He will tell you how he feels.

It took him a bit to catch up to what we already knew and kept poor Sally feeling defeated for no reason. When he finally realized it, he let Sally know how he felt as soon as he had the chance.

16. He's romantic.

The man really has a way with words!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone!

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
