To The People Spreading Negativity Around The Samantha Josephson Case

No one was at fault but the cold-blooded murderer.

To The People Spreading Negativity Around The Samantha Josephson Case

"Why didn't she ask the driver who he was here for?"

"How did she not recognize the car was different than the Uber she ordered?"

Samantha Josephson has become a common name among college students after her disgusting murder. Samantha, a 21-year-old college student, was out at a bar with her friends. When she was separated from them, she called an Uber to take her home. But she did not get in the right car and never made it home. Recently, I have seen a lot of bashing of Samantha Josephson and her friends regarding her murder.

But why is anyone being blamed besides the man who murdered her?

Yes, maybe if her friends hadn't left her, it wouldn't have happened. Yes, it was avoidable. But I'm tired of women being expected to take so many extra precautionary measures to stay safe. Women should not have to feel the need to constantly look over their shoulder whenever they go out. And it is so frustrating that the world we currently live in has to teach women how not to fall victim to traps like a fake Uber ride.

As Samantha's friends and family are going through such intense emotional turmoil, no one should be blaming anyone for the events that unfolded that night. It was a tragic murder by a cold-hearted man who would have TARGETED ANY WOMAN.

Even if we do everything right when we go out, even if we follow every safety precaution, we are still at risk of being targeted. That's just the unfortunate world we live in. So once again, THERE IS NO ONE TO BLAME BUT THE MURDERER.

I'm sorry to all the women in the world that will avoid going out because of these events. I'm sorry that we can never feel safe, even when we're just trying to hang out with our friends. I'm sorry that everyone expects YOU to change your ways instead of identifying the real problem.

No, we shouldn't have to be so cautious whenever we do anything outside of the house. But Samantha Josephson's murder proves that, unfortunately, we need to be.

ALWAYS DOUBLE AND TRIPLE CHECK YOUR UBER. That means ask for their name, who they're here for, check the car, and check the license plate. And please never let your friends Uber alone. No matter how badly you want to stay out, a friends life isn't worth an extra hour of drinking.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

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.
