To The Girl Who Is Ready To Settle Down,

DO NOT settle down.

And by settle down, I mean do not settle and downgrade yourself. Wordplay is kinda my shit. Do not take anything less than exactly what you want.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how I might be ready for a relationship again, and this has brought me to think of some people in my past that could have been eligible candidates. For almost thirty seconds, the idea of being in a relationship was almost more important than my actual happiness and wholeness. I almost forgot that these people are in the past for a reason, because they could not give me what I want or need, and I cannot settle for any less because along with wanting and needing certain things, I deserve them. I will not take anything less than I deserve. I will not settle.

And you should not either.

You are not wrong for wanting to settle down if that's what you want. Your'e not wrong for wanting to find the one who lights your soul a'flame. But make sure before you pour your time and effort into making it work with a certain human, make sure they are all you want and more.

Because like Christina Yang on Grey's Anatomy said:

"He is very dreamy, but he is not the sun. You are."

Be selfish, and love yourself enough to know the difference between settling down and settling-down.

A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
