10 Things That Will Happen Before I-44 Construction Is Done

Everyone that drives through St. Louis will understand this all too well.

10 Things That Will Happen Before I-44 Construction Is Done

If you live in or near St. Louis, Missouri, you know how bad I-44 traffic is due to road construction. I have been driving for almost 5 years, and I regularly have to drive that interstate. When I finally think they are done with construction, they start a new project on the same roads they just finished. I-44 is one of the worst interstates to drive in St. Louis because of the road construction, it's not as bad as I-270 during rush hour, but it's pretty close sometimes.

Since I have always had to deal with driving that interstate with all the road construction, I have decided to put a list together of things that will happen before they are finally done with all the road work.

1. IPhone 8 will be coming out

Should be coming out sometime in 2017!

2. Toy Story Land in Disney World will be finished

There's no official date set yet, but should be opening within the next few years!

3. Me graduating college

Hoping to graduate by 2019.

4. Trump presidency will be over

Unless he tries to go for another 4 years, a new president will be named in 2020, and Trump will be out of office by early 2021.

5. Me having kids

Not really looking to have kids within the next few years, unless something happens. But I know I'll have kids before I-44 construction is done.

6. College will change

Could become more online base instead of going to classrooms. This will help you work a full-time job or take care of your children,etc.

7. Me becoming a grandparent

Hopefully this won't happen for another 30 years, but It will still happen before I-44 is done.

8. Someone will find Waldo

People have been looking since 1987, and no one has yet found him.

9. Flying cars

Heck, we won't even need roads by the time I-44 is done.

10. Cubs winning the World Series

It'll take another 108 years, but it is possible for them too win again before I can drive on I-44 without any issues.

You can never trust that Missouri is ever done with I-44 construction, but you can believe that most of things will happen before they are done. I know road construction is important, and creates many jobs, but it doesn't mean it's not a pain in my butt when I'm trying to get to work. Best of luck to everyone on their travels.

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

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
