Energy in space was the ultimate bad father!

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a musical comedy drama from the beloved CW. I love this show with all my heart. It makes me laugh, cry, and question life. The show is unique in the sense that it talks about important issues through songs. Each season has had major bops, but season three really took home the grammy. Here is my top 10 countdown list of my favorites!

Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD

10. "Miracle of Birth"

Ahh yes, the miracle of birth; a beautiful, yet terrifying thing. In this season, Heather becomes Darryl's surrogate and they show her about to give birth. Paula, a mother of two, steps in to enlighten the young girl about the journey she is about to embark on once she is in labor. She sings about the pain and all the gruesome details that come along with birth, all while remaining annoyingly upbeat. The tempo of the song and the word choice make it hilarious and memorable.

9. "The Moment is Me"

This was definitely one of my favorites, because it is a song where young Heather is shown feeling confused about her life after college graduation. She sings about what she is going to do now that she has graduated. For the past two seasons, her catchphrase was, "I'm a student" and in this moment, she realizes she can't say she is any longer. Heather feels lost because a student is all she has ever been, which I'm sure is relatable to many college students and newly college grads out there, struggling to find their true calling.

8. "Fit Hot Guys Have Problems Too"

The title alone is enough to get a sarcastic laugh out of anyone who does not match the description. I loved the scene where the three most fit guys on the show, Josh, White Josh, and Nathaniel begin to dance shirtless, complaining about their problems. They want to make the point that even though they're attractive and healthy, that they still have problems, like the rest of us. Do they have that many problems? That's for you to decide.

7. "I Go To The Zoo"

I laughed out loud multiple times as Nathaniel, big, buff Nathaniel, sang passionately about going to the zoo when he is upset about something. One part is about the zoo being closed so he ends up going to the aquarium. It's such a random bit to do but I think it showed the side of Nathaniel that we didn't usually get to see on the show, in a comedic way.

6. "Where’s Rebecca Bunch"

The season starts off with the residents of West Covina singing this song, dressed as though they were from colonial times. The tempo of the song and the lyrics were very catchy. "Where's Rebecca Bunch?" "I've got a hunch!" says Heather, who says she does not and that she just liked the rhyme shortly after. It's funny but suspenseful. The song leaves the viewer wanting to know where Rebecca is.

5. "Without Love You Can Save the World"

We've all been there; we've all felt like love is a hard concept to understand. The great thing about this song is that the show is based around a woman changing everything in her life for love. She chases it and wants it more than anything, but once she sees how it has destroyed her to love the wrong person, she realizes that maybe the only way to save herself is to stop loving. The song and video for the song is a bit extra, which is why it's so funny. It shows the entire cast wearing heart shirt with the hearts crossed out as they sing about the concept of not loving. Fun fact: when I first heard the song, I heard, "without love, you can save the whales, save the whales."

4. "Let's Generalize About Men"

A hilarious satire filled song about men. The lyrics are golden. The women begin singing about how ALL men are awful and end up saying that gay men are great, so the song turns into, "let's focus now on straight men, let's generalize about them." This is something many girls believe, which is why it's so funny to have it be shown in such a unique way.

3. "A Diagnosis"

Rebecca's diagnosis made it to my top three because this was the most relatable song in the entire show for me. She sings about the fact that she is finally going to receive a proper diagnosis. This news fills her with joy, because with it, she can seek proper treatment, to actually help her out. So many people are misdiagnosed everyday, by mental health and general health professionals. Feeling awful all the time and never knowing what you have or what you must do to fix it is frustrating, I know from experience. Doctors saying, "Take this, do this," and it not working is the worst. I love how this show shone a light onto this topic that is rarely ever talked about. Mental health illnesses are often just directly labelled as depression or anxiety, so finding out the truth is a huge breakthrough for anyone in a bad state.

2. "Life Doesn't Make Narrative Sense (The End of the Movie)"

No it does not. Life is a mess; a messy mess. The song shows Rebecca hitting rock bottom. She does not understand anything in her life anymore. The song shows that just when you think you have life figured out, something happens to completely throw you off. Life doesn't make sense like movies do. Life doesn't always have happy, picture perfect endings where everyone is pleased. People do things that don't make sense and hurt you in ways you never imagined could be possible. The song is raw and real and features the talented, Josh Groban, who sings his own name. What more could you want out of a song?

1. "Nothing Is Ever Anyone's Fault"

The song that I have listened to on repeat when I'm in a sad mood takes the number one spot. This is the most hyperbolic song I've ever head. Nathaniel and Rebecca sing passionately about how their mistake are not their fault; they are no ones fault because the big bang was "energy in space was the ultimate bad father." Rebecca is sitting in jail and the two sing their hearts out about not needing to take responsibilities for their actions. The humor in this song gets a little dark, but I love it so much.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.


2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.


4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.

Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.


I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.


I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.


As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
