Why I Stand By Kim Kardashian

Earlier this week Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint at a hotel in Paris by five men in masks. The men got away with over five million dollars worth of jewelry. Since this event, Kim has received a lot of criticism and hate. People have condemned her for not having enough security, for flaunting her wealth and for constantly posting her whereabouts on social media. Many people have blamed her for what happened. They have even mocked her for not having any cameras rolling while she was robbed.

I stand by Kim Kardashian. No one deserves to beg for their life. No one deserves to have a gun to their head while they are tied up, gagged and robbed. The lack of security that Kim had wasn't her fault. She didn't expect that at 3 a.m. she would need security to protect her in the private place where she stayed. As a public figure, she places trust into the world that they will not hurt her. Of course, she has security when she makes public appearances, but she never thought she'd need a security guard in private.

Furthermore, it isn't fair to blame Kim Kardashian because she flaunted her wealth. Many people think that Kim Kardashian just miraculously makes money. However, aside from her reality TV show she has her own brand, her own video game and several clothing lines and stores. She works hard and deserves the wealth that she has. She has the right to flaunt that wealth because she earned it. No one has the right to rob her of that wealth.

Since the incident, Kim has silenced her social media. I would too if I felt betrayed by the public. Not only was she robbed, but now she has to deal with the unnecessary backlash and criticism while she tries to deal with being traumatized.

I stand by Kim Kardashian and you should too.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
