Did It Again?

This song is a perfect description of how a good amount of young girls feel when either hooking up with the same guy repeatedly or getting back together with an ex boyfriend, who were most likley players or A-holes. It's strange speaking for most girls, we are aware that it's a mistake we seem to keep on repeating. Deep down we know the chances of any good coming out of it is about 10%. It's just we believe in that small percentage so much that it seems to make us oblivios towards any type of sensibility whatsoever. We let our feelings get the best of us....

Do You Beleive In Magic?

 While lounging on my futon with my three other roommates watching yet another Harry Potter weekend on ABC Family we discussed what exactly it was that drew us to the movies in the first place. Our initial conclusion was that since we and Harry were always the same age growing up we felt like we could relate to him and just as easily have been the child taken out of the cupboard on 4 Privot Drive. That’s when we realized what it was that kept us reading each progressively heavier novel until the very end, the small glimmer of hope that we ourselves could be whisked off to a land far, far away. When you’re growing up there’s so much magic out there from Santa Clause to the tooth fairy that you’re given a false sense of hope that it could all be real. Yet even as an adult I still love the idea of magic, it just seems to take on different forms. Twlight, True Blood and Vampire Dairies clearly confirm that creatures, demons and magic aren’t just for kids. Even the most recent Harry Potter movie had the biggest opening yet, further proving that magic doesn’t disappear with age. But at what point do we need to stop and except our reality?

While Twi-hards have become almost commonplace, people still find obsessive World of Warcraft gamers or avid Wiccans to be very odd. So where do we draw the line? The ability to discern the difference between what’s real and what isn’t is only part of the answer to this question. Obviouslysomeone in a cape and witches hat would cause heads to turn, but even college campuses have well-educated young adults running around with brooms between their legs. In the end everyone has a love of something that only the imagination can bring to life. Its through dreams and believing in the impossible that innovative and revolutionary creations can be made. Although I wouldn’t advise a quest for Neverland, there’s nothing stopping you from pushing the limits of your curiosity and being hopelessly addicted to a series of novels about a young boy who’s life turned upside-down with magic.

A Look Into How Guys Really Feel When They Fall

While looking for pictures that I could use for this particular article, I stumbled across a list explaining to girls the signs of falling for someone.
Now, had I or any other girl saw this graphic prior to writing or reading this article, I would carefully read it, related to it, and then maybe gushed 25% of my time thinking about that particular crush of mine. However, after a ladies night out, a couple of epiphanies, and a few interviews with guys, I came to realize that this list really meant absolutely nothing.....
It was on our way home, from a night out in the town, when one my best friends received a text from a guy friend confessing his love to her. After reading the text out loud and expressing her feelings of shock, naturally the rest us chimed in our "two cents"(psychological analysis that we are able to come up with in a two minute time period). We needed to reason out this revealed mystery. It wasn't until the conversation ended and I was at my house that I rethought the situation. Maybe we were looking to much into this. Is it possible this guy's feelings towards her were blatantly obvious the whole time?

So, using Facebook, I asked a wide range of men – from the “Bros” to the “average Joe’s”-- the question:

How do you know when you and/or your guy friends are starting to fall for a girl?
