My life is not perfect, but I'm going to be OK.

To Whoever Cares, I'm Alright

Hi there,

Over the past couple months you've most likely seen my struggles and my low moments in life. You may have seen my heart break, my life fill with sadness, and my brain filled with stress. Despite all of this, I would like you to know that I'm alright.

I'm not sure how exactly this happened, but when I wake up everyday, I wake up happy. I'm happy I'm alive. I'm happy with the life that I continue to live in. Of course, there are some days that I wish went a little different, and I have things in life that I wish were “better”. I've learned by now that yes I have to keep working at those things, but that doesn't mean it's the end of the world.

The truth is that I've learned to focus on the positive aspects of my life. For example, I like to focus on my family and friends. No matter how many mistakes I make, they are always there supporting me. They have faith in me and continue to motivate me whether they know it or not.

I'm proud to say that I've given a lot of focus to myself as a person. I try to make the best of everyday, no matter what happens in that day. Things may not always go how I imagine them to, but that doesn't mean I give up. I've been through some not so happy times as other people have, but I don't let that get in the way of who I am. I try to spread happiness and kindness to others because in my dark times I know that's what I would want to receive. I'm proud to say that I'm a person who loves creating smiles on people's faces because it genuinely feels great!

I'm going to tell you a secret. I focus on my family, my friends, and myself because in my opinion that's what matters the most to me. I've realized that I'm the happiest when I focus on the positives of my life like my family, friends and myself. I don't care about expensive makeup, clothes, cars, technology etc. The materialistic things in life do not bring me happiness; that's not what matters in life. I can't express how great it feels to surround yourself with people who love you and you love back.

Because of all the warm love I receive from these incredible people in my life, I'm alright. Because of the self love I have for myself, I'm alright. Because I believe in happiness and my dreams, I'm alright. My life may not be perfect, but I wouldn't change one aspect about it because of my family, friends, and because of who I am.

So for those of you who have seen me struggle, don't worry because I'm alright. Sometimes I may make mistakes or fight with my internal self. I'm sure I can't be the only one because I'm sure you have those moments too.

I have a lot to figure out in life still, so just let me figure these things out. My heart may hurt sometimes, but it always heals. My life may be filled with sadness from time to time, but I'll be happy again. My head may stress out, but I'll find peace.

Take care,

A girl who's alright

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.
