Complaining On Facebook Isn't Helping Anyone

This past Tuesday, known around the country as "Super Tuesday," brought about the first round of presidential primaries. Most of the states that voted were part of the very conservative area of the country, so naturally Donald Trump won most of the states as far as Republicans go.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a huge fan of Trump. He's done plenty of horrible things that I definitely don't agree with. But you know what isn't helping the fact that he won all of these states? Complaining about him (or any other candidates) on Facebook.

People find a way to complain about everything. As soon as the results of the primary came out, people were quick to rush to Facebook and make snap judgments about the chosen candidates. I'm not trying to say that people shouldn't voice their opinions, but going on Facebook and bashing a candidate because they're not the one you wanted to win is just ridiculous.

And the worst part of it all? Most of the people who were complaining on Facebook didn't have facts to back up half of their criticisms. And on top of that, many of them did not bother to go out to the polls and actually vote for the candidate of their choice. In the state of Georgia, only about 6 percent of the population voted. And of that 6 percent, about 90 percent of them voted Republican.

When uninformed people start rambling about the primaries, things are bound to get out of hand. So many times I have seen adults and teenagers getting into heated arguments about politics on social media. Social media was not created so that people could get into pointless arguments about trivial subjects. Social media was created so that we could stay connected to out friends and family despite geographical boundaries.

So next time you log into Facebook and get ready to make a post about politics, don't. If you want to have a nice and civil conversation about politics, get informed, vote, and find a nice friend who wants to join in the conversation.

So-- stop complaining on Facebook. It's not helping anyone or anything.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
