Why I Love Zendaya

She may be young, but she's already killing the game

Why I Love Zendaya

If you don't know about Zendaya Coleman by now, I'd love to know where you've been while she's been making her mark on the world.

At 19 years old, she is already setting an example for how to be great. From singing to dancing to modeling, she's excelled in practically everything she does. She knows how to stand up for herself in the face of harsh criticism from haters, and she has maintained a flawless composure even when Hollywood tries to tell her to do anything other than what she wants to do. And to top it off, she has maintained a down-to earth attitude that is so relatable and worthy of appreciation. So in honor of this beautiful woman, here are a handful of her greatest moments from this year alone.

1. When she slew the 2015 Oscars

Zendaya easily had one of the best looks of the night, and when Giuliana Rancic decided to add some horrible comments about her hair (patchouli oil? really?), Zendaya handled it like the classy young lady she is.

2. The 2015 Met Gala

I'm sorry, can we just pause for a moment and admire her beauty? This was easily one of the most show-stopping moments of the night. I would love to know how she manages to slay every single appearance she has.

3. The 2015 BET Awards

A personal favorite. The outfit and makeup was on point as usual, but it was the confidence and pure beauty radiating from Zendaya that night that made me love her even more. Plus, as always, she was quick to handle her haters that night with humor and grace. I'm always here for that.

I could probably go on for a long time about how wonderful Zendaya is, but I'll just leave you with this small selection of moments. Thank you, Miss Coleman, for being an inspiration to others, and for always being yourself. Don't ever change.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
