The world needs more Rom-Coms

The world needs all the good it can get, and rom-coms are one of those things.

10 things i hate about you

The world needs more rom-coms.

I am a firm believer of that sentiment. The world is full of things that are terrifying and confusing. Life is hard and makes you question yourself and the world around you.

A little good in all of that can go a long way, and romantic comedies are just one way to spread that good.

So I believe the world needs more rom-coms. An hour and forty-five minutes of nothing but laughter, dramatic exits, and unrealistic expectations for love. Movies have the power to change your mood, your day, and even your life if it is the right one. They take you somewhere else. They show you the world. They make you laugh and cry. They make you appreciate the things you have and wish for some of the things they don't.

Movies open doors and make the impossible seem possible. Romantic comedies are just one small fish in a pretty large ocean but are one that means so many to people. People love their rom-coms.

"How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." "13 Going on 30." "Can't Buy Me Love." "My Best Friend's Wedding." "Breakfast at Tiffany's." "50 First Dates." "Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging." "Love Actually." Any Hallmark movie ever.

The list goes on. People are dedicated to those films and so many more, and for good reason. They bring people joy. They turn the bad days into good ones. They bring people together. I have spent many an afternoon laying on the foot of my mother's bed while we watch movies. Our favorites? The cheesy, romantic ones that make you laugh way too hard and dream of that one love. There's a rom-com for every emotion. Feeling nostalgic? "Can't Buy Me Love" boasts a young McDreamy. Want a not so PG laugh? "Trainwreck" has you covered. Looking for a 90s classic? "10 Things I Hate About You" or "She's All That" are the perfect fit.

Romantic comedies are timeless in the way they make people feel, no matter what era they come from.

So I support what seems like another upcoming rise in the genre that seemed to rule the early 2000s. I support the Netflix films that have taken the internet by storm ("The Kissing Booth" and "Set It Up," can someone please message me to gush over these with). I embrace another year of Hallmark creating even more movies than the last. I'm here for the movies that will go on to win awards and the ones that will be long forgotten. It takes all kinds, even in the world of films.

So here's to more rom-coms in the world. May they make us laugh, cry, and fall in love along the way - and may they help spread just a little more goodness in this world.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
