Ugh. The Weather Channel.

I’ve wanted to write this post for quite some time now. I hate The Weather Channel. There, I said it. Blog done.

16 Things We Forget To Thank Our Moms For

Thought Catalog

1. All the times she had to double as best friend/counselor/therapist/costume designer/hair stylist/coach/all-around-solver-of-every-problem-ever. I remain unconvinced that moms aren’t actually superheroes in disguise.

2. Forgiving us when we forget to call.

3. Listening to all our pointless dramas when we do remember.

4. Being the kind of person that we actually do want to become — because as we all know, it’s inevitable.

5. Having the incredible prowess only a mother whose babes have been scorned could — mama bear protects her cubs, sometimes excessively, but we love it, let’s be honest.

6. All those times we yelled “MOOOOMMM!!” through the house to find out where our white shirt was or what time so-and-so was getting home and all the other questions we just couldn’t go to Dad for.

7. All the things she reluctantly bought us at the cash register of any given store, all the clothes and things…

Time to Geek Out

Many of you know that JK Rowling recently came out and announced that Harry Potter and Hermione Granger should have ended up together. DUHH. This is the ending I had hoped my entire life for. Unfortunately by the fifth year it became clear to me that it would never happen.

So while Ron Weasley got the babe, Harry was off sticking it to his sister, Ginny. To put it lightly.

It’s Super Bowl Sunday!

But I don’t care because the Patriots aren’t in it! So, as a Communication major hoping to get into PR and Marketing, I’m watching only for the advertisements.

I hope everyone saw the Bud Light commercials during the AFC and NFC championship games because I bet they’re going to be the best ads of the year. The series follows a man named Ian around as he is #UpForWhatever. He starts by attending a bachelorette party, then he goes to play ping pong with Arnold Schwarzenegger, there’s a llama, then Ian is on stage with One Republic. It’s pretty hilarious. Here’s a compiled video:

Holiday Decorating Ideas on the Cheap

Ever Wake Up Questioning Your Sanity?

I am always interpreting my dreams using Dream Moods. My crazy dreams make me think I’m, well, crazy. Luckily I’m not alone and TK feels the same insanity after her vivid dreams.

It’s the HolidayS!

So this topic is pretty important to me. TK said it best, but I’m going to try my hardest to stress the importance.

I see all too often people, especially on Facebook, sharing extreme right wing views (not to generalize, but these posts usually originate on “Tea Party” and “Conservative” Facebook pages) saying that people should stop saying Happy Holidays because this is America and we only celebrate Christmas.

Back up. Most of these people are the same people who complain that their freedom of speech is being imposed upon. The freedom of speech, the First Amendment. What else is in the First Amendment?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

A Blog Post I Will Probably Regret

"Be like Aslan," she wrote.

I’m tired, y’all.

Tired of not fully understanding my French reading. Tired of not having proper time to go the the Rec. Tired of my phone being broken.

Above all, dear reader, I am tired of being a Millennial.

Not because I’m ashamed of my Millennial brothers and sisters. Not because I wish I was born in another era (that’s a whole other story). But because I’m tired of being bashed in popular media.

I read anotherarticle the other day which sarcastically mocked 20-somethings. And it just might have been the straw that broke the 20-something’s back.

Hi, I’m an entitled and broke 20-something and today I’m here to share with you some tips and tricks to grocery shopping on a budget that I’ve picked up over the past year and a half. You see, I graduated college a year and a half ago and, without meal plans or…

Marriage Isn’t For You

I am no where near ready to think about marriage, but I just had to share this. This post speaks truth and everyone who has every loved or plans to love should read it.

Seth Adam Smith

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.

I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.

Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?

Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.

Perhaps each…
