Why I'm Thankful I'm A Godmother
Lexie Klingler

July 4, 2013, is the day that changed my life forever. On that day, I became a Godmother. It is nearly impossible to put into words how greatly this blessing has impacted my life. To this day, I am overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness because of the opportunity that my Uncle and Aunt have allowed me to have. Without any questions and hesitations, I agreed to take on the role as a Godparent and it has be an honor to say the least.

I have been an only child my entire life. I have no complaints with being an only child, but it does come with some downfalls. Not having siblings means that I am never going to be an aunt. I find myself feeling slightly blue when I think about that because I have seen the way that my Aunts and Uncles treat me, and I wanted nothing more then to be able to give that in return. Being a Godmother has given me the opportunity to be an "aunt" and for that, I am forever grateful.

I was born on July 7, but the twist is that I was supposed to be born on July 4. Nevertheless, the fact that my Godson was born on July 4, the day I was supposed to be born on, seems as if it were meant to be. I feel as if I was almost destined by God to become a role model for my Godson. I know I may sound totally insane, but it's the small things that make me think further in depth. So for technically having the same birthday, I am grateful that we will forever share this memory together.

Being a Godmother comes with responsibility and motivation. I motivate myself to become a spectacular role model for my Godson. I want him to have the same hard work and dedication tactics that I do. I want to see him excel, to say the least. I want to shower him with gifts and love until he is 50 years old. I want him to know that no matter what the situation is, he can always come to me. This is my chance to be like an older sister or an aunt to my Godson and I promise to not let him down. You are a miracle baby and I'm so blessed to be here for you.

I love you, Zachary Aiden Klingler.

Uncle Max, Aunt Darlene, My mom, Zachary and me. This is the day I officially became his Godmother.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
