Why I Hate That I Love Taylor Swift

30 Oct

TaylorSwift

With her new album recently released, Taylor Swift is taking over the social world yet again. With her catchy beats and relatable lyrics she has turned her innocent country teenage self into the emotional pop star she is today. Every single one of her songs becomes a number one hit and is played on every radio station for weeks, months, even years later. I find myself singing along in my car and dancing in bars when her songs come on. So why do I hate that I love her?

I got a little weird when her album Red was released. Even before that when Fearless debuted I become too emotional. I don’t even want to go back to the days of Speak Now. I almost got a feeling of drunkenness, or some sort of high while listening to her music. The lyrics of her relationship past only brings thoughts to your brain. What if I did something different? What could have been? What should have been? Then you start to think how crazy she must be. How many boyfriends did this girl have? Did she ever think maybe the problem was her, not the selfish boys? I and my past and current relationships are normal compared to this girl!

Then you see her perform. Those awkward dance moves and quirky facial expressions turn you off for a minute. Then you get as caught up in her songs as she does and before you know it, you looks as ridiculous as her. I mean, have you ever been to a Taylor Swift concert? Everyone looks ridiculous, everyone!

One final note about why I hate that I love Taylor Swift; we all listened to, sang along to, and danced to 22 on our 22nd birthday. No question about it.

The Struggle Of Not Being Fat

23 Oct

Yes, you read that correctly. Yes, there is a struggle with not being fat; dare I say it, skinny. Thin girls don’t get a lot of sympathy in today’s society. However, believe it or not there are some of girls out there who are skinny and don’t like it. Not saying that the dream is to be overweight, but the dream is also not to be underweight.

In today’s world women who are overweight are criticized for the way they look. Models and celebrities constantly tell us “how they lost 50 pounds” and “healthy treats to help you slim down” on the cover of magazines, on television interviews, and even in movies. There are dozens of workout routines to lose X amount of weight in X amount of days on sites like Pinterest, and even blogs dedicated solely to it. I am here to put an end to it. I am not here to say the overused sentence “you are perfect just the way you are” because let’s face it, there is no perfect. I am simply here to inform you, the people of the internet, that not every girl who is skinny is starving herself. Not every girl who is thin wants to be that way. Just as not every girl who is overweight stuffs her face, or every girl that is a little bit bigger chose to be that way. We have these things called genes. They shape who we are and how our body looks.

Naturally thin girls are tired of hearing what you have to say. Do you walk up to an overweight girl and say “oh my gosh you’re so fat”? No. Just as you should not walk up to an underweight girl and say “you’re so skinny, do you ever eat?”. I’m sorry I do eat, a lot. Don’t assume I won’t want a second piece of cake after dinner, and don’t assume I do not workout. Also, don’t grab my wrist and mention how skinny it is compared to your normal sized hands or pick me up just to say “wow you’re so light I could carry you around for days and not be tired.” I have a fast metabolism, it’s not something you need to concern yourself with. Commenting on my weight is rude. Don’t be rude.

Also, I have a right to complain sometimes. Don’t think that my life is perfect because I wear a size 3.  There are more important things in life than to concern yourself with how much others weigh. ….end rant.

15 Signs You’re Too Old For College Parties

14 Oct

I made a trip back to my Alma Mater for Homecoming Weekend and I was confused as to how to act. I was excited to see my friends and campus. However, I felt a little out of place. I graduated last December and I already felt like I was too old. Here are signs you are too old for college parties:

1. Everyone else looks like they are 14 years old.

2. When the beer bong comes your way you pretend you have to go to the bathroom.

3. To “get ready” you put on jeans, a tee, and deodorant.

4. You need to take a nap before you leave the house.

5. While playing beer pong you don’t hit every shot back to back like you could in college, you take 4 turns to make one.

6. You don’t buy the cheapest beer at the local gas station.

7. Watching students twerk on bar tops and tables makes you wonder what other bad decisions they will make that night, not the wanting to join.

8. That feeling of death in the morning.

9. Everyone wants to be your friend because you have “a real person job” not because you are a great beer pong partner.

10. Waiting in line to get into the “hottest bar” is not appealing, at all.

11. You lose your voice in the first 2 hours.

12. Everyone is giving you a hug, even the people you don’t know. And it’s awkward.

13. You don’t want to go to the sticky and dark bathroom so you hold it for hours.

14. The “fear of missing out” does not play as big of an role anymore.

15. It is apparently “fancy” to drink wine, even if it’s out of a solo cup.

5 Oct

Where has he been hiding? Nick Jonas has made himself known once again, only this time he has left his brothers at home. Going solo may have been the best decision Nick Jonas has ever made. That and heading to the gym every day. He has grown up quite a bit since his Disney days, and by quite a bit I mean he is without a doubt a man! He has become my latest obsession, and I think America is not going to have a problem jumping on this bandwagon with me. Here are 6 reasons to help you realize that Nick Jonas will be your next obsession:

1. These pictures.
He decided to show off his goods in a Flaunt photoshoot grabbing his crotch and channeling his inner Marky Mark in those Calvin Klein shots back in ’92!

2. This song/music video.
His new single Jealous is perfect in every way. So catchy and everyone can relate. Check out the video here!

Olivia Culpo, aka Miss USA and Miss Universe 2012, could not be any more perfect, and the two of them together is no strain to the eye.

4. What he was and what he stood for.
He and his brother took the world by storm with their boy band The Jonas Brothers which helped them with their first television gig “JONAS” which didn’t last too long. However, his family love and adorable charm still stuck.

JONAS

5. What he’s doing.
He has taken a role in the DirectTV series Kingdom where he plays Nate Kulina, an up-and-coming Mixed Martial Arts fighter.

6. What he’s saying.
