I’m going to start this off by admitting to the fact that I probably spent way too much time watching TV when I was a teenager.

They defined coming of age, and became the hope we grew up on. The O.C. This show didn’t have too many seasons (running from 2003-2007, it had 4 seasons), but boy did it make an impact.…Continue Reading

19 Beautiful Taylor Swift Songs That Aren’t About Break-Ups

So, I love Taylor Swift. Everything from her songs to her merchandise, to her completely, extra dramatic videos. Apart from her super problematic brand of feminism, you’ll find me supporting her through EVERYTHING. Her music has gotten me through nights I spent crying over a broken heart, and mornings I spent bored at work. But then she gained a reputation of singing only about the guys who’ve broken up with her. And while I have absolutely NO PROBLEM with that (because her break-up songs are fucking BOMB), I’m here to prove that while her break-up songs are popular (errrrm…hello ‘Back…Continue Reading
