The world has changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes, the best that we can do, is to start over.
With all the crazy, horrifying, and tragic things happening in our world today, this just seemed fitting.



Taylor Swift’s new single “Shake It Off” is awesome!

It’s an energetic, I-don’t-care-what-you-think, haters-gonna-hate anthem that has a “Oh Mickey, you’re so fine!” old-school feel to it.

This is Taylor’s first official song as a classified “pop” artist and was inspired by the pop era from the year of her birth, 1989. (Also, the title of her soon to be new album!)

The video is so entertaining! I LOVE the fashion throwbacks and the use of multiple dance genres.

Also, you gotta love Taylor for always bringing the silly fun and not caring what anyone thinks about her.

Taylor proves that you may not be able to beat the haters, but you sure can have more fun than them!

Go T Swift! Can’t wait for the new album!!


Taylor Swift is coming out with a new album, titled ‘1989,’ on October 27th!!



Robin Williams, World Tragedies, and ‘The Grieving Contest’

Different things impact people in different ways. Just because something doesn’t matter to you or didn’t impact you, doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter to anyone else.

I don’t get the people in this world who don’t like something, and then feel the need to spread their anger and dislike.

People are entitled to their own opinions, ideas and perspectives.

Respect that.

You can disagree with someone, but at least respect that they have the freedom to state their piece.

12 Reasons I Love Cincinnati

My hometown is the best <3

I love this idea!

The Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables campaign, started by Intermarché in France, takes imperfect-looking vegetables and fruits that are not sold in markets, selling them for 30% cheaper and turning them into healthy juices and soups. They saved 1.2 tons of produce per store from waste just in the first two days! Incredible!

France is proving that you can’t judge a book by its cover and I absolutely agree! Not every vegetable or fruit grows exactly the same. The “strange”-looking produce is just as tasty and healthy as the “societally accepted”-looking produce.

Go Intermarché and France! I wish I knew someone in the American food and farming industry to pass this along to. 

There is so much hunger all over the world and so many tons of produce tossed every year. This is a great stepping stone in the fight against food waste!

What Everyone Gets Wrong About Where You Go To College

Interesting article. 

I agree. Having just graduated college myself, I can tell you that it’s not where you go that makes your college experience. It is what you learn. It is the friends and memories you make. It is who you connect and network with. It is the experiences you garner. It is your growth as a person and discovery of self.

In the end, you get out of college what you give.

Find your passion, do what you love, and the rest will follow.
