Spring Is Officially Here In Ohio, And I Couldn't Be Happier

Spring is sprinting back into season.

If the erratic and unpredictable rainstorms did not warn you that the tempestuous spring is back in season, maybe the fluctuating temperatures from 50s-80s is a good sign. After a long winter, all I can say about spring returning is thank God! Spring is one of the best seasons because there is so much to do: farmers markets start popping up around town, fairs, outdoor concerts, hiking, rock climbing, and late night stargazing all come rushing back into season.

Moreover, outdoor sports are a must; the lukewarm temperature and cold breeze of spring create the perfect atmosphere for those who do not want to get too sweaty but still want that outdoor workout.

Spring is back! This means outdoor barbecues, spontaneous pool parties, bike rides, lemonade stands, and the sweet smell of rain that always lingers in Midwest air. It means hunting for flowers in the middle of the day or getting off of work late at night to go to a friend's movie-watching party.

In the spring, everyone seems to shed their winter funk and reopen themselves to the possibility of the world. The grocery market becomes a little friendlier, your neighbor's kids start playing outside again, and the sound of a dog barking becomes white noise. There is so much to love about spring that can be easy to forget due to the frequent downpours.

However, these also bring about staying in and having movie nights with pizza delivered, car rides to pick up popcorn and snacks, overly competitive board game tournaments or sitting in a big chair with a good book.

Take this spring to re-energize yourself and center your energy. Remember all the good things spring will bring as it relieves us all of a bitter cold winter season, and try not to let the constant rain get you down too much!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
