23 Reasons I Simply, And Unconditionally, Love My Boyfriend

The story of how he stole my heart.

23 Reasons I Simply, And Unconditionally, Love My Boyfriend

If you're lucky, you will meet the love of your life in college, or in the years to follow. I was lucky enough to meet my amazing boyfriend at the end of my freshman year. When I first met him, I really didn't like him all that much. Today, I couldn't imagine a day without him. He loves me to the moon and back, and I fall in love with him all over again every day.

Here are some of the ways he stole my heart and the reasons why I love him so much.

1. He never gave up on me. Even when I told him I wanted to take a break from him and I started talking to other guys again, he never let his hope of us getting back together die. He fought for me.

2. He always has my back. Even if he doesn't really agree with me, he never says so. He will go to the end of the Earth and back to take my side and stand up for me.

3. He is strong mentally and physically. So much happens to him and myself and he never falters, and he never lets anything break him.

4. I know that we will get through anything together. Through thick and thin, already he has proven that he is a keeper.

5. He tells me he loves me more than once a day, every day.

6. He instills confidence in me and sees me at my best, even when I feel at my worst.

7. He knows exactly what I am thinking before I even get a chance to say what that may be.

8. He takes care of me. When I am sick he cuddles with me in bed and makes me soup. When I am feeling great, he takes me on little adventures.

9. I never get bored or have a bad time, when I am with him.

10. He treats me amazingly well. Whether it's going all out for me on my birthday, or buying me a tiny surprise just because it's a Monday, he doesn't mind going the extra mile to see me smile.

11. We like all of the same things. Except for which brand of peanut butter or mayonnaise is better...which is Jif and Duke's.

12. He makes me laugh until I start crying about the most stupid things ever.

13. My dog likes him better than me at this point.

14. He loves to stay in bed with me all day and watch movies and be lazy.

15. He loves Chipotle as much as I do, which is saying a lot because ya girl loves chipotle. It's my life.

16. He talks about our future together with me, however hypothetical it may be.

17. He gives me piggy back rides.

18. He is silly and goofy and immature with me at all times throughout the day.

19. I trust him with my life.

20. I always feel safe around him, and he taught me how to shoot a gun and defend myself.

21. He calls me the cheesiest nicknames but I love them more than my actual name.

22. He stands up for what he believes in.

23. He kisses me like it's going to be our last almost every time.

Even though we fight over stupid things sometimes, and struggle to get along always, I love the little games we play with each other. I am so blessed and thankful that I met him at that one party my freshman year, and I can't thank my lucky stars enough that they forced me to give him a chance.

I love you Ricky. I know you have been asking me to give you a shout out in my articles for a while now but I thought you deserved a little more than just that. I am so proud of you for all you do in your life. Happy graduation!

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
