10 Quotes for When You Are Feeling Low
Katie Farrell

Everyone on the face of the planet knows how it feels to have a bad day. That one day can turn into two, those two into a week, and that week into a month. It is a part of life. However, there are ways to combat that lowness.

I spent the last week feeling pretty crappy about life and the things that I was doing. I was continuously asking myself why I even bothered to do all of the things I was doing because there was no point. People were not listening, they were not responding, and I felt alone. It is a pretty bad feeling, that of being alone.

All of that being said, I mentioned above that there are ways to combat that lowness no matter what is causing it. I did some research and found 10 quotes that I think are really important to keep in mind when you are going through a challenge. Whether it is school, extra curricular activities, friends and family, whatever it may be. I hope these quotes remind you that you should keep going.

1. "When you are going through hell, keep on going. Never, never, never give up." -Winston Churchill.

If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
