Note: I am not a psychiatrist nor do I play one on t.v. so please remember that my advice is just advice and should be followed at your discretion. If your feelings of sadness go beyond just a funk and at all resemble depression, please seek out professional help. 

No one is happy 100% of the time. And really, it’s delusional to expect yourself to be because sometimes life just SUCKS.

Lang Leav has been a favorite of mine since her first poetry book, Love & Misadventure. Since then, she’s published four books of poetry that revolve around the themes of love, loss, empowerment, & life. Her latest poetry collection is no different. Sea of Strangers by Lang Leav beautifully details the diverse emotions that are felt upon finding and losing love and losing and finding yourself in-between.

Like many modern day poets,

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been self-conscious of my smile. My teeth have never been super straight or pearly white. And as much as I love caramel frappes, my addiction to them have made my smile less than bright.

If you’re somehow unfamiliar with ghosting, consider yourself lucky. Ghosting is the act of disappearing on someone you were dating, talking to, or in a relationship with. It occurs when a romantic prospect or partner decides to cut off all communication with the other person. Sometimes, you can see it coming while other times it happens when you least expect it.  Regardless of how or why it happened, there’s no denying that it’s an inconsiderate and cowardly way of ending things.

When some people think of Chippendales, they think of attractive men mindlessly dancing around wearing nothing more than briefs and a collar bow tie. But, the Chippendales experience is sooo much more than that! After attending a Chippendales show in Indianapolis earlier this month, I have newfound respect and admiration for the Chippendales men.  Don’t get me wrong, I love eye candy just as much as the next girl, but the men who make up Chippendales have a hell of a lot more to offer than a pretty face and perfectly sculpted abs.

We all know an exceptionally nice person. If we’re lucky, we know more than one person. Or maybe, we ARE this person. Of course, most human beings have the ability to be nice. But the nice people I’m referring to are those who are so nice that they constantly have the word floating above their head. When someone asks about their character, the word ‘nice’ is found in their description. The ‘nice’ tag follows them all throughout life whether it be in the workplace,

Unlike most schemes, none of these methods I’m about to reveal to you require your credit card number or other super confidential information.

Once, I shamelessly sent a text to a guy that said, “Show me your soul instead of your selfies.”

As expected, he quickly replied with a confused “Lol…what?!”

Although my text might have been worded strangely, or maybe was just plain weird, my underlying message still stands. I wanted to see more of him, but what I wanted to see had nothing to do with his looks.

I wanted to know his biggest secrets,

It’s been awhile since I’ve got lost in the fictional world of a book. While I’m an avid reader, I usually gravitate towards poetry or nonfiction. However, The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin immediately became a book on my “to-read” list. Though my interest in this book began after seeing the movie trailer, I was instantly intrigued after reading the book’s synopsis.

In a world full of dog loving men, it sometimes seems impossible to find someone who shares your love for cats.  Though modern society has a stereotypical view of what cat lovers look like, cats are loved by more than just old and/or lonely women.
