Astrology is popular on social media today, several tumblr blogs and twitter accounts are dedicated to it. After seeing multiple posts, and one I find hilarious and slightly accurate, I'm writing this article because the numerous tumblr posts on representations of the sings are hilarious, and astrology is fascinating. Some people ask the bloggers what sign they should date, but some of my favorite posts have been the signs as various gifs. In this case, I'm using a post the user snowdiac created, and adding some of the stereotypes of the signs I've seen from other posts and websites.

Aquarius includes birthday from January 21 to February 19, and are represented by a water-bearer as their symbol. Traits of an aquarius are friendly, witty, humanitarian, loyal, unpredictable, inconsistent, and stubborn. A wide-range of interests and dislike of monotony motivates this sign to seek out new things such as intellectual stimuli, friends, or ways to change the world, but they are stubborn in their beliefs and it is hard to change their way of thinking. The are considered inconsistent because their feeling in the moment influences their behavior or performance in a situation. This gif somewhat represents aquarius in their unpredictable behavior, but I also included another dog gif that is supposed to show how stubborn slash determined they can be!

Pisces includes birthdays between February 20 to March 20, and their symbol is a fish. They are known for being compassionate, imaginative, accepting, idealistic, pessimistic, and lazy about things that they don't care about. If things don't turn out the way they expect, then they tend to look at the negative side of events. Also, they have high energy for short amounts of time, which is understandable, and so it makes sense they can be considered lazy when the subject or situation doesn't matter to them. The blogger chose this gif for pisces because of their idealistic trait; they keep going and going along with their expectations until reality hits them:

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac calendar, and includes birthdays from March 21 to April 20. The ram is the symbol of this sign, and they are independent, confident, impulsive, and short-tempered, but "their upbeat and magnetic personality often entices others to follow their lead and brings excitement into others' lives." I bet this dog saw this slinky and immediately wondered what it does, so he or she made the impulse decision to start playing with it. And the dog ended up like this, which I think is hilarious:

Taurus has birthdays between April 21 and May 21, and their symbol is the bull. They are ambitious, dependable, self-indulgent, and lazy when it comes to doing something they are not motivated to do. Ambition makes taurus very goal-oriented, and they will put in all their effort to get what they want, but failures and setbacks rarely affect them. Patience and dependability are fabulous traits to have in a friend or loved one, but their self-indulgence (as a result of being so goal-oriented) can lead to ignoring another's feelings. The blogger chose this gif to show that when Taurus are unmotivated to do something, they often will not do what someone asks, and are considered lazy:

Gemini has birthdays from May 22 to June 21, and is represented by their symbol of Twins, often shown as the Roman number two II. Traits are enthusiastic, witty and humorous, versatile, lack consistency, and are often labeled as superficial. The enthusiasm and lack of consistency go hand in hand in that Gemini are full of life and always seeking new things. Wit and humor come naturally with their spontaneity, and they can keep you entertained for hours. Versatility leads them to be open to divulge in new experiences and subjects that they consider exciting. The superficial trait comes from their (supposed) inability to pay attention to detail and express emotion. However, they often feel lots of emotions at once and cannot accurately express them. This gif shows the wit and humor of Gemini that will always keep you laughing:


Cancer includes birthdays from June 22 to July 21, and their symbol is the crab. They are faithful, loving, protective, clingy, and suspicious. Cancers are generous and deeply admire people close to them, and often are protective of loved ones and interests. Some think they show lots of emotion, but they often have trouble showing emotion even though they are sensitive. They are thought of as clingy because it is hard for them to let things go, and they are paranoid about people's intentions. This gif shows a dog with multiple treats in its mouth and looking a bit suspicious as to why his or her owners gave him or her so many treats:


Leo has birthdays between July 23 and August 22, and the lion is their symbol. Traits are energetic, loyal, straightforward, dominating, possessive, and impatient. Their energy spreads positive vibes and they are a loyal friend in that they will tell the truth by being frank. They like to be in control and get things done as soon as possible, so they often expect people to follow them and become anxious because of their impatience. Possessiveness is the result of sharing, not giving, they are very giving, but sharing can result in jealousy. This gif shows a puppy playing with a door stop, which illustrates Leo energetic:


Virgo has birthdays from August 22 to September 23, and their symbol is the virgin. They are known for being analytical, practical, trustworthy, meticulous, harsh, and judgmental. Their attention to detail goes hand in hand with their analytical and sometimes overcritical nature, and no imperfections will go unnoticed. Practicality means they are in touch with reality and do not live in a fantasy world, but their harsh bluntness can hurt loved ones. Virgo can also be judgmental as they pay close attention to details, in other words, they are perfectionists. This gif shows a dog holding his or her owner's hands while in a car, which illustrates both the trust yet also reassurance the dog needs (if I were this dog, I would be overanalyzing and thinking about getting shots at the vet when we might just be going to the park):


Libra includes birthdays from September 24 to October 23, and their symbol are scales of justice. They are charming, just, indecisive, tactful, and easily influenceable. Their charm acts an aid to being tactful as Libras like to get things done, but they would never use someone's emotions against them, as they are (too) good of a person to manipulate others. Their symbol accounts for their trait of justice, although they are easily influenceable by others' opinions, and as a result indecisive. This gif illustrates how libra take interest in random situations, and using charm to relate to another person, such as the owner of this dog making sound with a glass:


Scorpio has birthdays from October 24 to November 22, and a scorpion is their symbol. Traits are bravery, intuitive, faithful, jealous, and manipulative. They are ambitious and reach for the stars, and their intuition and bravery are a large part of making decisions and choices. In making tough decisions, they can be ruthless in that emotions will not hinder them although they are known for being sensitive. Having a Scorpio who trusts you guarantees faithfulness until they think you have betrayed them, or if you make them jealous as they are very possessive. They like to have things done their way, and are not scared to manipulate people to reach a goal or to persuade someone. This gif shows a dog exploring a great snowfall, something that I think is brave and makes me believe this dog is the first to venture into the snow, before his or her owner, to make sure things are safe:


Sagittarius has birthdays from November 23 to December 22 and their symbol is the archer or centaur. They are adventurous, straightforward, largehearted, impatient, and tactless. Being straightforward means they do not sugar coat the truth, which can sometimes make them tactless as they are too harsh towards others. They are generous and love helping others and making them comfortable. Adventure is always an option for them, and they can become impatient and restless in waiting to decide what to do for said adventure. This gif shows a dog jumping around excited for the adventure of going on a walk, and we can see that the dog is impatient for his or her owner to make the proposition:


Capricorn has birthdays from December 23 to January 20, and their symbol is the goat. They are ambitious, wise, patient, pessimistic, and moody. The traits ambitious and pessimistic somewhat intersect as they have big goals and put in their best efforts to achieve them, but they often think of themselves as underachievers. They are wise in that they are mature and sensible, and part of being ambitious is ensuring that they secure a future for themselves and their family. Patience allows Capricorn to appreciate that things take time to materialize and so their goals make take time, but they do not lose hope. They can be funny and witty at one moment and then grumpy at the next. This gif shows a dog driving a car while remaining calm and patient, let's say the drive is long and this dog is heading out to immediately start pursuing one of his or her goals:

Let me know what y'all think, and I highly suggest checking out the astrology blogs and twitter accounts, even for a good laugh.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.

104
views

On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
