Thank You, The Faim, For Being A Positive Inspiration In Our Lives

The Faim have inspired many people, so here is my personal thank you.

Thank You, The Faim, For Being A Positive Inspiration In Our Lives

Just like myself, so many fans have been inspired by Aussie band The Faim. I came across them May this year and my life has been impacted in such a positive way. From their music to the lyrics, to the friends I have made because of them and the positive messages they spread.

Through them I have found confidence, I have made new friends and have fallen in love with music in ways I thought to be impossible.

Their music has impacted me in such a positive way. They have also inspired me to be more open with my creativity, because of them I have rekindled my creative streak, their music has sparked something in me which I thought was long gone, my writing is coming back to life because of them and I couldn't be more grateful.

The Faim have not just inspired me, but they have also inspired the people around — the people I call friends. They have had such a positive impact on so many. They inspire my friends and me to be the best we can and to want to give 100% in everything we do.

So this a thank you to them. I think the reason for this being is that they're not afraid to express how they really feel, their songs definitely come from the heart.

Their music is an escape, as well as being real. The songs hold important messages, many fans are thankful for the raw music they provide but are also thankful for the fact it provides shelter and escape when going through a rough patch.

Songs such as "Make Believe" prove this. With heart-wrenching lyrics such as "I want to feel something" and "All we are is guilty hearts in a sea of memories." These lyrics just show how open The Faim are.

Make Believe is my favorite song to hear them play live as the amount of passion that goes into each performance of the song is truly astounding.

Unreleased song "Infamous" also means a lot to many fans such as myself as the lyrics provide a powerful message. With lyrics such as "don't lose your way" it is easy to understand how so many people are able to connect with this band.

They give so much to their fans and in return, the fans connect to their music and take something from each song.

Another inspirational song is one of their singles Summer Is Curse. This song provides lyrics such as "All we need is time" and "If you never try then you'll never know."

Personally, when I am feeling downtrodden, I will listen to this song and these lyrics will make me feel more positive about the world around me.

Not only do their songs provide positive messages, but the band members like to spread a positive attitude, especially lead singer, Josh Raven. All he wants is for fans to feel safe and be able to explore their creativity and take what they want from life.

Josh also teaches fans to not be afraid of being themselves.

"Don't sell yourself short. There's nothing wrong with being different. Being yourself is the most unique and beautiful part of being human."
"Be your own hero. You're strong enough to be anyone, achieve anything and create whatever you want. It all starts with a thought in the right direction."
"When you hit rock bottom, you've got nowhere to go but up. I was so broken, ruled by my anxiety, sadness and anger, It took a lot of thinking to realize that life can be unfair but it's never wasted. It makes us stronger and opens us to the fact we're all deserving of happiness."

For me, these are vital messages, I am still young myself, but there are fans younger than me who would need to hear such positive, vibrant messages as I know I still do. These quotes honestly make me happier and push me to be the best I can. These are the quotes that give me that extra push when I'm having a bad day, they are encouraging, myself and so many others are thankful for these small ounces of wisdom.

The fact that Josh isn't afraid to speak up about his mental health and raises awareness towards those who follow him is an inspiration. He is an inspiration who demonstrates, even though we have bad days we can still free ourselves from these days as things will get better with time.

I am thankful for The Faim for being a really inspiring group of young men who create great music and spread such a positive message to their followers. They truly are great guys and I will always be thankful for the positive messages they spread whether it be through their songs, captions or tweets — this allows us all to realize we are not alone.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
