When the state Oklahoma is mentioned, the first things that
may come to mind are crop fields and acres of grass. Like many
other midwestern states, Oklahoma does not appear to have
anything interesting or worth visiting. However, with careful
research and planning, you may find unique and worthwhile
places to visit. Here are 4 interesting places to visit in Oklahoma
that I have discovered during my recent visit!

"Girls never go after guys like me"
"I'm such a nice guy!"
"Girls only like the jerks"
"She rejected me, I guess she doesn't like nice guys"
If you ever find yourself saying these things, whether it be out loud or on Facebook at 3a.m., I have news for you:
You are not entitled to a girl because you are "nice" to her. You are not entitled to her body, her number, or even her time.
According to Wikipedia, the term "Friend zone" was coined in 1994 by the infamous "Friends." In the episode, Ross is in love with Rachel, but she only sees Ross as a friend. Now, if you watched the show, you'll know that the two do eventually fall in love. But if that doesn't happen to you with your dream girl, I've got news for you: she just doesn't like you.
Many men (and yes, women too, but the term is more often than not used by men) will see a girl, whether it be at work or school, and become attracted to her. In that instant, he will probably ask for her number and constantly talk to her in person and on social media. He will probably complain to his buddies about how she "doesn't notice" his flirtatious advances and only keeps the relationship platonic. He will also complain that he does "so much" for her, like voluntarily buying her lunch, telling her she looks nice, or listening to her talk about her "a**hole boyfriend" and how she doesn't recognize all of his effort. Honey, she notices. She doesn't like you. She does not have to. She may not want to tell you straight up because she does not want to hurt your feelings, or maybe she has already dropped hints that she just wants to be friends and you haven't noticed. She may have even flat out told you "no," yet you took that as an opportunity to "show her what she's missing out on" and continue your advances.

1. Your spice tolerance? Sprinkle some sugar on your tongue to cut the spiciness. Coincidentally, sugar packets can be found on tables at just about any restaurant.
2. While traveling, put some dryer sheets in your luggage. This will keep you clothes smelling fresh and clean!
3. To open a difficult pistachio, stick one side of a used shell in the crack and twist to make it pop open.
4. Use Internet Explorer or Safari when streaming Netflix on a computer. Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome only stream up to 720p.
5. To keep your cats and their kidneys healthy, separate their water from their food. Cats don’t like to drink water when it’s close to their meal, so they’ll want to stay hydrated when the two aren’t together.
If you're having a rough day or just feeling a bit on the edge you've come to the right place! Here some methods I use to calm those nerves on high anxiety days, from things you can don't the go to some rainy day activities when you need something to keep busy!

Koreans are known for their skincare, and green tea has always been a staple in their creams and serums. This cheap, easy-to-do step in my cleansing routine has been the reason why my skin has been clear since middle school, sans hormone-related breakouts that we all get. I learned this from my mom, and this method has been passed down our family for years.

Summer is in full swing, meaning anywhere you look, you’ll peek a new makeup release. The whole makeup community has really embraced the more artistic side of the industry over the past year, thanks to social media allowing new and up-and-coming makeup artists to get their cosmetic creations into the public eye. As a result of the consumer’s new artistic inspiration, makeup companies have been releasing more unique and avant-garde products. Though many makeup lovers have deemed a lot of these products “unwearable”, I have fully embraced the more experimental options. And if any of you out there have been eyeing a blue lipstick every time you walk into Sephora, or a yellow eyeliner, but have been too scared to try it, you should go for it! Life’s too short, ya know.

When thinking of summer vacations, road trips are rarely
the first to come to mind. Long hours in the car and large
amounts of money spent on gas may not seem like the ideal
vacation, but with careful planning and a leap of faith, a road trip
could be the best trip of your life.

Welcome to Night Vale is a bi-monthly podcast about the fictional and bizarre desert town of Night Vale. I'm not really a podcast fan, but thank God I started listening to it. And here are 5 reasons why I think you should, too.
1) It’s odd. Cecil Baldwin, the narrator, reports the news of Night Vale. Unexplainable things happen in this city: the arrival of two moons, a glowing cloud that commands the town's worship, a dog park where dogs are forbidden, unknown hooded figures- the point is, Night Vale is weird. The podcast’s content is beyond unique and I have so much respect for the creators. If you have a pull towards strange things, this podcast was made for you.
