Before I was in a relationship, I found it so weird that girls and guys found their SO their best friend. Now that I am in one for almost a year I realized that I look at my boyfriend as more than just my boyfriend. He's my absolute best friend, I figured that out so quickly into the relationship.

1. You call him with all of your "girl drama"

He could honestly probably care less about what you and your girlfriends are fighting about today, but he'll listen because he loves you. He'll probably give you some cute advice that will make you smile because he's just so "cute" when he tries to help. It's nice to always have someone on your side. (Hint: It's always nice to have a boyfriend to tell because he's a boy and won't tell your friends about anything because again, he probably could care less.)


2. You let one loose around him.

You know exactly what I'm talking about- a FART. Farting is probably the most anticipated event in a relationship (besides the first kiss). But, take it from me, letting the first one go is always the most awkward but once you fart, you never go back. You'll probably find your inner first grader and crack up every time you hear a "toot".


3. He's your ideal shopping partner!

You always call your boo to come to the mall with you to help you find the perfect outfit for the weekend. He's always the first one, to be honest about what outfits he likes best or just talk you into buying all three!! He wouldn't want his baby walking around looking a mess!


4. He's basically a part of your family!

Remember when you were 12 and you were allowed to bring a friend on vacation and such, and you always picked your best friend? Well, now that you're older you always pick him in accompanying you and your family on vacation or at dinner. Your family loves him, and at family parties, he's always seen dancing the night away with your mom and dad!


5. You'd prefer hanging out with him doing absolutely nothing rather than doing anything else.



You love when he invites you to his house or offers to spend the night at yours because it's probably the purest form of fun ever. You always have fun together no matter what it is. And of course, when it's time to part your ways you're found tugging on his leg in tears begging him not to go.


6. You don't always have to look "flawless" in front of him during those preferred hangouts.

End up having a sleep over? Waking up with no makeup on doesn't even phase you both. Even just hanging out in each other houses doesn't call for an hour of makeup. You simply just walk out the door and he'll make you feel absolutely flawless either way.


7. You're so comfortable with each other's weirdness that embarrassment isn't a thing.


I mean he's your best friend, nothing that you can possibly say or do is embarrassing and you never feel judged when you're around him. Whether you're just cracking stupid jokes or dancing like a weirdo, you can always expect him to join or tell you you're stupid and laugh anyway.


8. You don't need words to judge people


You simply just look at each other and chances are that you're thinking exactly what each other is thinking.


9. He brings out the best in you.

He literally can change your mood from a 0 to 100 so quick. He can make you feel better when your sick with just a kiss on the cheek or being there when you need him. He gives the best advice and cuddles on your worst days.


10. Your fights are probably over picking a place to eat or what to watch.

...and you can get over them in seconds. You're the king and queen of compromises and talking things out. Like going to Wendy's for dinner so you don't have to get dressed up or pay too much.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.

If I Unfriend You During The 2020 Election, Yes, It's Personal

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden's plans for Black America matter.

The Black Lives Matter movements have sparked widespread conversations and protests across the nation. With justice not being served for the murders of innocent Black people like Breonna Taylor and absolutely no support from President Donald Trump, this upcoming election is quite important.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Air Travel Looks Different Now

If you have to travel, you can — you just have to take a few extra steps.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

As we are learning how to live our lives in the midst of a pandemic, one big question being travel. States that were initially labeled coronavirus (COVID-19) epicenters, like New York and New Jersey, are extra cautious in how freely residents can travel and then come home. Other states may not have the same travel restrictions as the epicenters, but one thing is for sure — no matter where you fly within the United States, that trip will look different than your usual summer vacation. Sure, it can still happen, you just need to take a few more steps to make sure your trip will go smoothly.

I've seen too many people faking various conditions to claim that they cannot wear face masks right now. Often, the claim is asthma and other breathing conditions. I figured it's time for people to hear from those who actually have these conditions. Not only are these people at a higher risk for serious complications after contracting COVID-19, but many of them also have been wearing face masks before this pandemic began. Take my mom, for example. As someone with damaged lungs, she has been using face masks for years. For those with compromised lungs, face masks protect from bad air-quality, dust, and other hazardous things that can be breathed in.

I figured hearing the facts from the source is the best way to hinder the spread of false information. I interviewed my mom about what life is really like for those with compromised lungs during this pandemic.
