Today my friend and I were discussing college students getting engaged and I couldn’t help mentioning a classmate of ours who got engaged a month before we went to college. As a female when I hear someone is engaged I can’t help, but ask about the ring. I know for a fact that if were to get engaged I’d be posting pictures all on my Facebook page so my friends would see my three stone princess-cut Tiffany’s ring ring. I waited and waited for her to post photos up, but she never did. Because she didn’t post pictures I asked her if she was really engaged because people liked to get Facebook engaged for some reason. To my astonishment she really was engaged. I saw her about four months later and the first thing I wanted to see was her ring. I grabbed her hand and to my amazement I saw Continue reading
I love men who keep up with fashion. In fact I’ve been encouraging my boyfriend to try this “retro” look that Cosmo magazine featured in one of their magazines (You know the look where the pants are a tad bit tighter and there’s the skinny tie? Yeah I find that to be extremely sexy.) Well, I remember when skinny leg pants came out for girls and I fell in love with them. Then they came out for guys. When they first emerged I only saw punk rock White guys sporting the look and I said to myself, “Those are some men that aren’t afraid of being fashionable.” Fast-forward to 2009 and the beginning of 2010 and I think that all these men need to burn in hell. How could men ruin such a simple look that doesn’t need much altering? Well easily of course!
The first problem with men wearing skinny leg pants is that a lot of men are Continue reading
Today I had to read the story of creation for my Classical Mythology class and of course it included the story of Adam & Eve. I don’t care what your religious beliefs are 9 times out of 10 you will know the story of Adam & Eve even if you grew up in an atheist household you’ve had friends recant the story for you at least once. Well, while I was reading a this story (something I haven’t read in YEARS!) I realized how much power woman has had over man since the beginning of time. Despite Adam being here first and knowing that God told him not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge he caved in after Eve told him to try it out because it was good.
As we all know, Adam was lonely for a couple of years before God realized he needed a partner in life. It’s stated that “…a man shall leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife.” (Genesis 2: 25) Just reading the word “cling” makes me think that God was sitting Adam up for failure with this woman.

Hey readers! I haven’t done a decent post in a minute and I apologize. So much has been going on in my life lately. I just turned 20 a few days ago, school started back up for Spring semester, and that means it’s study time. I couldn’t quite figure out what to write for you all because I was having a serious case of writer’s block, but that all just changed a few minutes ago. Why you ask? Well I have this….male. I met him during my 11th grade year of high school. My aunt had tried to hook me up with him because she said he was a nice, polite, and cute young man that worked out at her job bagging groceries. Well we use to talk and when we finally met up things didn’t go anywhere near expected. He was the first guy that I had actually talked to in hopes of being in a relationship so when we decided to meet up I was so worried. I had really low self-esteem back in my teenage years due to my acne so I prayed that when we met my personality would make him ignore the fact that I had teenage acne and left over scars. When he called me to figure out where I was he said, “I don’t see you. The only girl I see parked by the light pole is ugly.” At that moment my heart sunk. I was the girl at the light pole and it’s moments like this when our flight or fight response kicks in. I wanted to crank my car up and drive off, but in the back of my head I told myself no. I stayed and I met him. The one thing I remember about meeting him was when he told me, “I’m gonna take you out and show you things you’ve never seen before.” After our meeting he suddenly became…different. Continue reading
In the words of my Daddy, “If you’re going to get drunk do it behind your own closed doors.”
As I sat at home today cleaning I remembered awhile back one of my dorm mates was discussing with me how she had just broke-up with her first boyfriend after I told her my two year anniversary was approaching. I remember when I mentioned the length of my relationship she asked me what the key was to have a long-lasting relationship. Well I am not a relationship expert; in fact I’ve only dated one person. Despite these minor flaws I have managed to stay with that one person for two years and we are still together (for young adults those years are often viewed as being the equivalent to dog years.) I believe that there are common threads in all relationships that keep people together for 60 plus years and these same threads are what can cause a relationship to last only a few minor months. So here are a few things that I think are keys to a good relationship.
1. Laughter-I think there is nothing sexier than a man who can make me laugh. In fact, I’d probably date a butt ugly man who can make me laugh compared to a man who looked like Michael Ealy Continue reading
