Thank you for everything you do for me

10 Things I Forget to Thank my Boyfriend For

I have never been a fan of Valentines's day, which happens to be quickly approaching. My reasoning is because I believe if you truly love someone that you shouldn't need a holiday to show them that you care. You should show that you care all the time. Then I realized how guilty I am of getting caught up in my everyday life. As a full-time student who also works part-time, it is so easy to forget to say thank you and to forget to show appreciation for things that those who love you do for you. Here are 10 things that I forget to thank my boyfriend for:

1. For listening

I know you couldn't care less about a lot of the stuff that I rant about but thank you for sitting down and listening to me rant anyway.

2. For your time

Thank you for giving up so much of your time to help me, take care of me, and spend time with me.

3. For scraping the ice off of my car in the winter

Thank you for letting me stay warm when it is -10 degrees outside!

4. For buying me food

Thank you for all of the times that you have taken me out to dinner, brought me a bag of greasy food from sheetz, taken me for ice cream, or even just bought me a $1 cookie.

5. For waiting for me

Thank you for being patient all of those times that I have told you I was ready and really wouldn't be ready for another half hour

6. For making me laugh every time we are together

I could be having the worst day ever and crying my eyes out and you would still say something to make me laugh. Thank you!

7. For going shopping with me

Thank you for going from store to store with me while I browse and try stuff on even though I know you would rather be literally anywhere else doing anything else. And thanks for never complaining about it either!

8. For understanding my anxiety

You never get upset with me when I have a panic attack or when I get anxious over something I have no reason to be anxious about. Thank you for always staying calm and rational and making me feel better.

9. For reading literally everything that I write

As someone who loves to write, this is a big one for me. Thank you for not only going out of your way to read everything that I write but for also giving me constructive criticism and praise. You help to make me a better writer and I can never thank you enough for that.

10. For being my best friend

I know girls always say that their boyfriend is their best friend but it really is true. Thank you for being the one I can do everything with and tell everything to.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
