Let’s Talk Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy, while most are familiar with the word, is defined by Merriam-Webster as behavior that contradicts what one claims to believe or feel. Some synonyms of “hypocrite” are pretender, deceiver, plaster saint, sham and fake. Admittedly, everyone’s probably been a hypocrite at least once or twice, but what makes this an issue is that self-righteous individuals will use their so-called morals to shame other’s actions, beliefs or preferences. “Not practicing what you preach; lacking the willpower

Some have had boyfriends/girlfriends and other experiences, while some are still in the process of acquiring one and some just don’t care or have the time for those things. I’m here to say that having a boyfriend/girlfriend doesn’t mean as much as everyone makes it

Daria: The Show That Defined A Generation

I wasn’t alive during the 90’s, but the late nineties (1996 to 1999) sounded pretty great. Tragedies and misfortunes are inevitable, which is why not everyone will agree about the late nineties being great, but there’s one thing about 1997 that would have kept me going if I were alive back then: the TV series “Daria.” For those who are unfamiliar, Daria is an animated television series based on teenager Daria Morgendorffer.

An Emo Christmas Playlist

Christmas is only a few days away and most people have been playing Christmas music since November, or in my case, October. However, some people are beginning to get tired of the usual “Joy to the World” or “Deck the Halls” or the multiple renditions of “Last Christmas” because let’s face it — not everyone has the best Christmas experience all the time. Whether you’re going through a difficult family situation, a breakup, or any
