The Bachelorette Week One Recap

Has peace been restored to 2020? The Bachelorette is back!

The Bachelorette Week One Recap

I am doubtful this show will improve things, but last week's premiere summoned college girls everywhere to take a break from ultimately homeschooling themselves for thousands of dollars a semester to drink Rosé in excess with their friends on a Tuesday! As I said in a previous post, I am by no means a Bachelor Franchise aficionado. This means I know nothing of the trials and tribulations of this season's leading lady, Miss Clare Crawley. The Bachelor is something I just tried a few times in college, which out of all the self destructive behavior I could pick from this isn't half bad. Mom and Dad I hope you're proud.

To be frank, I don't have high hopes for this. From my minimal experience so far, this show is a ponzie scheme that is addictive and leaves you with nothing.

Exhibit A: my first season, Colton's season. In addition to this being primarily an exposé on male virginity, this season made my head explode numerous times right down to Colton picking Cassie. Then we had to watch them be "in love" on Instagram for a contractual period of time only to end with Cassie filing a restraining order on Colton or something like that and the relationship combusting. I feel like this isn't the first restraining order this girl has filed. One she's beautiful, but two she definitely thinks everyone is obsessed with her.

Exhibit B: Hannah B as the Bachelorette. This has been my favorite so far since I just adore Hannah B, but her picking Jed was a personal affront. Unsurprisingly after this horrible choice she ends up with no one and once again the return on my watching time investment is zero.

Exhibit C: Peter's season. This feels like a lifetime ago but there was so much insanity, random country singers and yelling just to have Kelly who Peter surely banged once before the show "surprisingly" end up with him at the end after the run of the season. Cool. Real Classy.

So you can see why I wasn't betting any money on this horse until I saw these men! Clare you have a pretty, pretty pool to pick from. Also, hopefully I'll know the names by next week but here is my general description of the episode in case you missed it:

As if we all didn't already know we were living in the midst of a Pandemic, ABC carries on for about twenty five minutes by showing us up close and personal nostril videos of all the men testing themselves for Covid-19. I'm sure there is a fetish out there for this somewhere but it sure isn't mine! Please get to the cringey introductions please and thank you! As I said I didn't know Clare but she seems super sweet and she looks amazing for nearing forty. Or really, amazing for anyone.

The only other things you need to know are as follows:

  • Most of the men are good looking
  • Some of them brought Clare food and the ones who didn't cried about being left out
  • There is a contestant named Bennett who I'm fairly certain was created in a test tube in the very back room of the main Vineyard Vines headquarters.
  • Someone dressed in a straight jacket which was highly inappropriate and I believe he was sent home.
  • There was the obligatory prior to going on the show Instagram bombshell which involved one guy with a wacky accent telling Clare that Yosef was "being reckless on Instagram." Clare, recognizing that around every Saturday night around 1 am we are all a little reckless on Instagram choose to ignore this and send the tattle-tale home instead!
  • I feel like half the people got sent home since as usual the Instagram bombshell monopolized the time and all men left standing looked excited.
  • There was a makeout at some point but it's so early on who even cares.

I hope you found this helpful please just read this instead of relinquishing two hours of your life to this soul sucking program!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
