Yes, I Watch The Bachelor, But No, I'm Not Like Any Of The Girls

I was gonna try to find a time to bring this up, and I figure why not now?


So the bachelor season has started up again and I was gonna try to find a time to bring this up, and I figure why not now? The season has barely started but I have had these thoughts on my mind as I have been observing all of the girls.

I have noticed that all the girls get caught up in the drama for the most part. I'm not one to judge, but I really don't think that drama is my middle name. Have I ever gossiped about someone before? Oh of course, but I'm not usually the one to sit down with my glass of wine on a Friday to gossip for hours about Emily. The girls on the show usually tend to be a bit high maintenance with how they want to do their hair and makeup. I mean quite frankly, I do love to do my hair and makeup nice when I go out but on the regular, I am a powder and go kind of girl.

As far as my hair, I usually straighten my hair if I'm feeling it or I will put it in a ponytail. That's the vibe I always tend to go with and roll with. The girls also tend to be very fit and athletic and I'm not those things. I do work out, but I'm not very swole to be honest. I do think that it's a great thing to be fit, but it's just a lot of hard work and hard to keep up with.

Even though I haven't been all of these things, I am still going to watch the show and try to relate to the girls on some of the other things. I do like to wear yoga pants on the weekend and binge watch shows on Netflix, so I have that in common with them. Only time will tell to see if there are more things that come up on the show that I will have some thoughts on!

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

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
