The opening lines of the "One Tree Hill" theme song alone make me emotional: I don't want to be anything other than what I've been tryna be latelyyyy... Let's be honest—the entire series made me emotional. It's borderline embarrassing to admit how many times "One Tree Hill" made me sob like a baby. Even if at times "One Tree Hill" seemed completely unrealistic—that dog eating Dan's would-be heart, COME ON—it still managed to be one of the most relatable shows I have ever seen. Nine seasons, 187 episodes, and an infinite number of quotable moments, here are 20 "One Tree Hill" quotes you need to hear right now.

1. "At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes — all you need is one."

2.

3. "If you miss them, that means you're lucky. It means you had someone special in your life, someone worth missing."

4. "There is no shame in being afraid. Hell, we're all afraid. What you've got to do is figure out what you're afraid of. Because when you put a face on it, you can beat it. Or better yet, you can use it"

5. "And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it's only in the black of night you see the stars."

6.

7. "We're all crazy, some of us just hide it better than others."

8. "The hardest part of saying goodbye is having to do it again every single day."

9. "We fell in love, and at some point, the people we love forgot to love us back."

10. "You know, you might wanna take a long hard look in the mirror. And see if the guy staring back at you is the kind of person you want to be."

11.

12. "Live the life, live the dream, no fear."

13. "Happiness comes in many forms-in the company of good friends, in the feeling you get when you make someone else’s dream come true, or in the promise of hope renewed. It’s okay to let yourself be happy because you never know how fleeting that happiness might be."

14. "Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Did it steal into our lives or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us that we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war, hoping for their safe return, but knowing that some would be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows. Swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?"

15. "Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside of us while we live."

16. "If you’re lucky… if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back."

17. "And once you lose yourself, you have two choices: find the person you used to be… or lose that person completely."

18.

19. "Every day we ignore how completely broken this world is and we tell ourselves it’s all going to be okay, you’re gonna be okay. But it’s not okay. And once you know that, there’s no going back."

20. "We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good, chasing things with integrity is good, dreaming. If you had a friend you knew you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it. Do it. Don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever. Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want, everything you want. Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle’s going to come from, the next memory, the next smile, the next wish come true. But if you believe that it’s right around the corner, you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the certainty of it, you just might get the thing you’re wishing for. The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it? Good. Now believe in it with all your heart."

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

The 9 Types Of Guys You're Destined To Meet In College

Yo bro, ya heard? That's what's up!
7
views

Oh, boy! In college, you will come across people of all shapes and sizes with a wide range of personalities. Despite that, there seem to be several categories that boys fall under while at college. This week, I've outlined the 9 types of guys you'll run across in college:

1. The total frat dude.

Yo bro, ya heard? This guy is in a frat and has made it his mission to let everybody know he is. His go-to look is a polo shirt with cargo shorts that are just a tad too short. He probably has an American flag hanging on his wall and his most creative Instagram caption is "Saturdays are for the boys". Don't get me wrong, frat guys can be nice just stay away when they're too many beers in on a Tuesday night.

2. The 'Victory Royale'.

Almost like clockwork, this guy posts a snap on their story of them winning Fortnite a caption along the lines of "AYYYEE" or "Dubs only." When this guy is not on a bean bag chair two feet away from his TV screen he's with the bros. This guy might not be the best at getting ladies but at least Fortnite is always there for them (except when the servers crash).

3. The gym rat.

Muscle tees, pre-workout and a gallon jug of water are this guy's best friend. He either is busting out of his own skin after taking steroids or is the leaner guy that could take someone out in one punch. You never see these dudes on a treadmill, only lifting weights. His favorite food is probably chicken and he likes to post snap stories of him eating an excessive amount of eggs. He likes to date girls that are tiny to make him look big in comparison. These guys are nice until you question their masculinity.

4. The cool nerd.

If you meet a nice guy who is smart there's a 50% chance he's an engineering major. This guy probably likes to casually play sports and/or is in the band. School is always his number one priority but he also wants a smart girlfriend to talk nerd too. This guy peaks around sophomore year when most people start to settle down. He's the one at the end of college with a high GPA and a girlfriend out of his league.

5. The country boy.

This guys truck/ jeep is named after a girl and is most likely on their Instagram page. Every weekend this boy is either mudding or on a boat with their neighborhood friends. They are the only reason Natural Light is still being sold and were taught to shotgun at age 13. This guy loves him some camo and "Make America Great Again" hats. Don't let him have aux at parties unless you want an erratic playlist that has a mix of country, rap, and the occasional girly pop song. However, don't let the country fool you – these guys end up graduating with a good GPA and a business degree.

6. The dad bod.

This guy is probably in a frat and has been for the past four or five years. He is really taking his time with the whole college thing and doesn't let it stress him out. This guy is either really tall or awkwardly short and you can't really tell if they're muscular or heavier. This guy came into college and went wild his first couple of years and now he has a beer in his hand the majority of the hours he's awake. Although this guy loves making pledges drink until they're on the verge of alcohol poisoning, he always makes sure everyone have a sober ride home.

7. The pothead.

This guy never fails to let everyone know he has a three-foot-long bong and treats it like it's a precious artifact. He loves wearing hoodies and posting pics of him lighting up a blunt in nature. His favorite colors are coincidentally the same as those on the Jamaican flag. His role model is Bob Marley and his room always smells like a mix of rotting food, dirty laundry, and a quite herbal scent. All his friends hang out and end up talking about how cool elbows are.

8. The hard worker.

This guy is one everyone respects. He somehow manages to take a full course load and work a ton of hours at his job. He is smart and level-headed. He goes underappreciated all throughout college but turns out to be super successful in his career.

9. The GBF.

Gay Best Friend might be a 2014 movie but these guys are real. They have a ton of pretty girlfriends and are always the go-to for venting. These guys take the show at the club and really make the best of college. Their Instagram feed is so much more aesthetically pleasing than yours and they are always flashing their white teeth. They're always super nice unless you piss them off.
