I am in a fantasy league centered on The Bachelor. There, I said it. When I moved to Nashville in early January, a few of my friends had a group of people that they watched The Bachelor with, and I was fortunate enough to be adopted into this inner circle of reality TV watchers. We then decided to make things interesting and created a fantasy league for this season. We had a draft after the first episode, giving all nine …

Dear Homeland, I hope this letter finds you well. I began writing this after the second episode, but then I thought I was jumping the gun and being a bit too harsh. I thought that it wasn’t fair to judge a show so quickly that has such a strong history. However, after watching episode three, I can’t hold back anymore. Homeland… you know when you’re reading a book and you catch yourself zoning out? Then, you have to go back …

Ever since receiving the call from my dad telling me that Grams had passed away, I have been constantly reflecting on how I would define my grandmother.
