I Named My Showers

Scrub a dub dub.

I Named My Showers

Showers are necessary for moisturizing my frizz ball hair that might as well be a stack of hay, toning my blonde color, thinking, warming up on a cold day, oh, and, I almost forgot, cleaning myself up! I don't know about you, but I have a few different kinds of showers. One day while daydreaming, I decided to name them, so, here goes.

1.  The ​​​"I Got Stuff To Do So I'll Scrub My Body For Like Three Seconds"​​​ shower.

It's almost midnight and I have sorority points to get by the end of the week, two 19th birthdays to celebrate, eight hours of sleep to catch up on, a "911" episode to watch, and four assignments due by 11:58:59 p.m. Also, I should hit the gym, and I just remembered I have a project due in two days. Have I eaten yet? I'm tired. Let's get this shower over with.

2.  The "Whew I Stink" shower where I scrub my feet about six times.

I forgot to bring my loofah the past couple showers, I've worn the same Adidas sneakers for the past week, and I woke up sweating in these hot dorms (even though my roommate and I opened the window all the way in the middle of winter while it's 10 degrees outside and blasted the fan) so I need to really scrub today with extra soap. That is, if I haven't run out of soap yet. I might have to borrow my roommate's soap since I don't have a car, don't want to pay for shipping, nor do I want to take a 16-minute bus ride, walk three blocks in the cold, wait in the cold for a bus, then ride 16 minutes back.

*Later in the shower* Oh, oh no, I forgot my loofah. Again. I ALREADY GOT IN THE SHOWER. Time to FaceTime my roommate and ask her to bring it to me.

3.  The "Oh No, It's Time To Wash My Hair" shower so I gather up my products and pray for a good outcome.

I go as long as possible without washing my hair to be totally honest. Gotta pre-poo for a while. Gotta leave my conditioner in for a while. Maybe deep condition for a bit. Maybe even tone with my purple shampoo for like 30 minutes. I might as well shave while I'm already taking forever in here, but I'm going to run out of razors soon. I need to pass the time, so I tend to jam out in these showers (and waste a lot of water because it's too cold to turn it off while I wait).

I can't afford these products. I can't afford to shower.

4.  The classic "Debate Life" shower.

Why did I do that yesterday? What DID I even do yesterday?? What am I going to major in????

You see, showering is a blast. It's warm me time that doesn't involve dirtying clothes that will need to be cleaned, I can do or say whatever I want without judgment, and I come out squeaky clean.

Which shower will it be tonight?

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
