Ya Like Jazz?

Ya Like Jazz?

What do you think buzzy boy? Are ya bee enough?

The Bee Movie is terrible. Take my word for it. However, while it is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, it is also one of the best movies I have ever seen. Between the terrible puns and the horrible one liners, you find yourself hating the fact that you enjoy it.

It took me all the way until my freshman year of college to finally see this movie, and frankly, I’m kind of glad I didn’t watch it until now. There is a great joy that comes from seeing kids movies when you’re an adult. You finally understand all of the adult humor that you didn’t get as a kid, and The Bee Movie is full of it. Jerry Seinfeld is a great comedian, but he should not write a kids movie. Granted the kids don’t understand how terrible the jokes are and what they mean, but us adults do. There have been too many times I have turned to my roommate with a look of dismay on my face because I can’t fathom what just happened. That being said, that is the kind of humor I enjoy hearing.

While Seinfeld’s jokes are pretty cheesy and bad, the puns are far worse. However, a lot of times the characters don’t make puns, they just throw the word “bee” into their conversation and call it good. One of the worst/best examples of this is the character Bee Larry King. This angers me profusely because they were sitting on a goldmine of Larry Sting. It is so cringey in the best possible way.

I know it may seem like I’m completely bashing this movie, but that is quite the contrary. It is all of these terrible aspects that make this one of my favorite movies. If you haven’t seen it yet, then you are wrong. Plain and simple. I would never take back finally seeing The Bee Movie because without it life would bee a complete buzzkill.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
