The Bachelorette: Men Tell All Recap & Final Rose Preview


Well, my experiment failed. I thought maybe if I stopped writing about this season that it would just go away. I got tired of Andi and her boy(z II men). I was tired of watching these men swaddled in scarves perusing some of this world’s greatest cities. But, I Read more

The Importance of Henderson, Tennessee (and all Hometowns)


   "Everybody has to have a hometown, Binghamton's mine. In the strangely brittle, terribly sensitive make-up of a human being, there is a need for a place to hang a hat or a kind of geographical womb to crawl back into, or maybe just a place that's familiar because that's Read more

Summer under the Stars: What our love for "The Fault in Our Stars" says about us


When it comes to of-the-moment teen book series, I’m certainly a connoisseur. I eased through the Harry Potter stories, devoured the Hunger Games trilogy and – yes, sad to say – even gave the Twilight saga a spin back in the day. None of these endeavors I really regret, either. Read more

Why we dislike Shia LaBeouf


Shia LaBeouf is at it again. Seen the latest headline? The actor was ejected from a Broadway performance of “Cabaret” and promptly arrested for disorderly conduct. His crimes were worse than peering down his phone at Snapchat during the show, too. Apparently, the actor was caught smoking, yelling out Read more

When you lose a parent, the first reaction is never one of appreciation. The immediate aftermath is not filled with happiness over all the times you shared and how blessed you were to have that person in your life.

Instead, you tend to focus on what can never be. You think of all the years you have left where you won’t have that parent around to talk to or share memories with moving forward. It’s that notion that leads to most of the heartache you experience when suffering through those first few weeks following a passing. Read more

Entertainment Inspiration Entertainment Inspirations: London Calling

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

There’s nothing better than the summer Olympics. Nothing. Listening to Bugler’s Dream, or even Chris Brown’s “Dreamer” from 2008 always gets my blood rushing, just imagining how crazy it must feel to be at that caliber. Someday… someday I will go to an Olympics, most likely as a spectator. Until then, I’ll sit here on my couch, dropping my jaw at perfectly synchronized dives, tragic mistakes, and tear-inducing victories. Go America. Read more
