This is how they get you.

The first two things you learn when you become a student at the University of Michigan is that there is no worse place on this earth than Columbus, Ohio and there is nothing more loathsome than a Buckeye. While we all know how to get to Columbus (South till you smell it, East till you step in it), no one knows exactly what a Buckeye is. Rumor has it it is some type of deformed acorn.

Over the last few years a strange thing has happened. I have made a number of good friends here in NYC that are originally from Columbus, Ohio. They are all, despite what I had been told, lovely, smart people. It has made me re-think all I have been told. But now I wonder.

My friend Catherine, born and bred in the Columbus area, and a graduate of OSU, made me a batch of Buckeyes. Whatever they are in real life, Catherine's are, essentially, the greatest peanut butter cup you have ever eaten. A mound of smooth, rich peanut butter goodness enrobed in chocolate heaven. They are incredible. As I was eating one and thinking that maybe Columbus wasn't that bad after all a terrible realization creeped into my head. This is all part of their plan.

Clearly, they pick the best of the bunch and send them into the world to corrupt weak minded Wolverines. Not to worry though. I promise, as I eat each and everyone of these Buckeyes, I am thinking "Go Blue!" in my head.

    After years of being called a trend, it’s clear that athleisure is simply how we dress now. But, like with all other styles of clothing, there are a lot of things — whether fashion-y bike shorts or activewear designed for peak performance — that don’t come cheap. In fact, when we asked fitness instructors about their favorite workout leggings earlier this year.

  27. It Improves Creativity: Makeup is an art, hence requiring diversification. This is because you don’t want to be seen applying the same set of colors every single day. This is why most people who use makeup love to experiment with it, helping their hands become more talented.
    Benefit of Makeup

    It adds a bit of Maturity to your Face: It’s a general misconception that makeup only makes you youthful. When the right colors are combined, makeup can help make a young face look a little more mature- think of the dark shades.

  30. I found a way out of a site with beautiful romanian brides if you, like me, have no wealth and are continually denied, don't be bad. Romanian women want you to provide for your family too, but their choice of the husband will never be based on his wealth. Even when you start your career, a Romanian lady will gladly help you and take your side. Best good wishes!
