Please stop.

It’s Time To Stop Hating On Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s Relationship
Instagram @arianagrande

In case you haven't heard, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are engaged! While this is assumedly an exciting time for the couple, as it would be for most engaged couples, there has been a lot of people commenting about how quickly the couple got engaged. From "that escalated quickly" to "girl we know you love him but are you dumb" there has been an overwhelmingly large negative response to the couple's engagement. And honestly? It's tiring.

Now, let me throw in here that I am not really a fan of either of these people in the sense that I wouldn't put myself in their fan base. I've listened to a few of Ariana's songs and watched Pete on SNL, but I would never say that I belong in their fan base. So, I don't have a need to defend this couple out of fan adoration or anything. I'm defending them simply because I am tired of seeing them get bashed on. Yes, their relationship might have moved quickly, but that does not mean they won't last. Even if they do breakup soon, we all need to stop hating on their relationship.

How would you like it if you were in a relationship and one of your friends told you how much they disapproved of your relationship? You probably wouldn't like it much right? Now, consider how you would feel if they started posting their feelings publicly. Again, you probably wouldn't like that. I know I wouldn't. So then why does everyone think it's okay to publicly rail against Pete and Ariana's relationship and subsequently their engagement? I have yet to see more than a handful of articles congratulating Pete and Ariana and have instead been bombarded with dislike of how quickly their relationship moved, their tattoos of each other, and anything else people can complain about.

I also don't want to hear the "they're celebrities so it's fine" argument. Yes, they are celebrities, and yes that does mean that their lives will be in the spotlight more, but that doesn't mean they aren't still people who have feelings. Just because they're more famous than a lot of us does not mean that people should feel they have the right to so publicly hate on the relationship. I'm not saying don't disapprove, I'm just saying disapproval in private is much different than disapproval in public.

I'm not asking people to stop talking about their engagement because a) I know it wouldn't work and b) I don't think that's necessary. What I am asking is that we show a bit more support and a bit less hate. Going back to that old adage: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. If you don't like their relationship, don't comment. Because it's tiring seeing people constantly bashing people they don't know about a relationship they only have a limited view of.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
