Cuddling is my favorite pastime, and personally, I think snuggles are the best way to destress, steal warmth and connect with others — all without saying a word. Fellow snuggle buns will know what I mean. Here are 27 things only cuddlers know to be true.


1. Whether it's once a day or once every two weeks, every cuddler has an cuddle quota to meet.

Quality cuddle time should never be disregarded as a "luxury."

2. Everyone close to you is aware of this. Even the "no-touchie" sibling cannot deny your affection.

3. You're resistant to new people.

Initially...

4. But once you get to know them, you're overly friendly at times.

5. When you're tired, your mom/best friend knows you well enough to pat their lap so you lay your head and snooze.

Till their thigh goes numb, and they shove you off. Then you just cuddle yourself around them.

6. You're the only one at sleepovers who's excited about the sleeping part.

7. And sometimes, that makes you look like a touchy-feely creep.

8. But really, you just want some body heat.

9. You always go in for the hug.

Always.

10. Refusal to provide cuddles can result in plaintive cries of "You don't love me!"

11. But sometimes you can go days without physical contact and be totally okay.

12. Though most of the time you're craving a snuggle or two

13. Except you hate it when strangers take that to mean you want a hug — from them.

Um, no thanks.

14. You actually don't like everyone touching you.

Only select individuals are deserving of your snuggles.

15. The household pets love you best because of the hours-long cuddles.

16. No matter how old you get, everyone sees you as the "affectionate baby" of the family.

17. The real reason you want a relationship is because of cuddling perks.

18. You can cuddle literally anywhere.

19. But you prefer to cuddle on soft surfaces.

20. And with furry animals.

21. You will seldom pass up the chance for a free hug.

22. But you certainly have your favorites.

Body heat at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit + firm, cozy cuddle grip + smells amazing? Sign me up!

23. Just this.

24. You love soft fuzzy blankets and curling up in them — even when it's summer.

25. You covet fluffy objects, from fuzzy pillow pets to furry phone cases.

26. You daydream of one day lying in a pile of furry animals.

27. But until then, you'll take whatever cuddles you can get.

To The Girl Who Had A Plan

A letter to the girl whose life is not going according to her plan.

“I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” - William Ernest Henley

Since we were little girls we have been asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” We responded with astronauts, teachers, presidents, nurses, etc. Then we start growing up, and our plans change.

In middle school, our plans were molded based on our friends and whatever was cool at the time. Eventually, we went to high school and this question became serious, along with some others: “What are your plans for college?” “What are you going to major in?” “When do you think you’ll get married?” “Are you going to stay friends with your friends?” We are bombarded with these questions we are supposed to have answers to, so we start making plans.

Plans, like going to college with our best friends and getting a degree we’ve been dreaming about. Plans, to get married as soon as we can. We make plans for how to lose weight and get healthy. We make plans for our weddings and children.

We fill our Pinterest boards with these dreams and hopes that we have, which are really great things to do, but what happens when you don’t get into that college? What happens when your best friend chooses to go somewhere else? Or, what if you don’t get the scholarship you need or the awards you thought you deserved. Maybe, the guy you thought you would marry breaks your heart. You might gain a few pounds instead of losing them. Your parents get divorced. Someone you love gets cancer. You don’t get the grades you need. You don’t make that collegiate sports team. The sorority you’re a legacy to, drops you. You didn’t get the job or internship you applied for. What happens to you when this plan doesn’t go your way?

I’ve been there.

The answer for that is “I have this hope that is an anchor for my soul.” Soon we all realize we are not the captain of our fate. We don’t have everything under control nor will we ever have control of every situation in our lives. But, there is someone who is working all things together for the good of those who love him, who has a plan and a purpose for the lives of his children. His name is Jesus. When life takes a turn you aren’t expecting, those are the times you have to cling to Him the tightest, trusting that His plan is what is best. That is easier said than done, but keep pursuing Him. I have found in my life that His plans were always better than mine, and slowly He’s revealing that to me.

The end of your plan isn’t the end of your life. There is more out there. You may not be the captain of your fate, but you can be the master of your soul. You can choose to be happy despite your circumstances. You can change directions at any point and go a different way. You can take the bad and make something beautiful out of it, if you allow God to work in your heart.

So, make the best of that school you did get in to. Own it. Make new friends- you may find they are better than the old ones. Apply for more scholarships, or get a job. Move on from the guy that broke your heart; he does not deserve you. God has a guy lined up for you who will love you completely. Spend all the time you can with the loved one with cancer. Pray, pray hard for healing. Study more. Apply for more jobs, or try to spend your summer serving others instead. Join a different club or get involved in other organizations on campus. Find your delight first in God and then pursue other activities that make you happy; He will give you the desires of your heart.

My friend, it is going to be OK.

If You Don't Actually Live In Chicago, Stop Saying You Do

Chicago natives only.

If you call the Sears Tower, the "Willis Tower" then you are not from Chicago. If you have no intellect on the colloquial language or slang that is used in Chicago, then you are not from Chicago. If the CTA was not your primary form of transportation at some point in your life, then you are not from Chicago. If you have never seen a chair in a parking space, or personally put out a chair to save your shoveled parking spot in the winter, then you are not from Chicago.

If your address does not include: 606, Chicago, IL then you are not from Chicago!!!!

I have heard a lot of suburbanites complain about how adamant Chicagoans are about not letting them say they are from Chicago. I understand that if you are from a small town that nobody has ever heard of, it might be easier to say that you are from Chicago, but we both know that isn't true. Instead, say that you live x amount of hours away from the city. The reason that Chicagoans become so upset when people not from the city say that they are, is so much bigger than we simply don't like sharing our city. I agree Chicago is an amazing place, and I couldn't imagine growing up anywhere else, but by claiming that you are from Chicago, when in fact you are not, you are discrediting the hardships and experiences that people from the city endure.

Living in Chicago comes with a lot of good things, but it also comes with a lot of bad, as well. Those who grew up in the suburbs will never understand what living in the city is actually like unless they have experienced it themselves. I am a Chicago Public School alumni and was in the system from preschool all the way to high school senior. In all of my fourteen years of being a CPS student, funding to keep school doors open has been a consistent problem. There have been countless times that the Chicago Teachers Union has threatened to go on strike for better wages and condition. There also have always been plenty of times that they actually have gone on strike costing students valuable class time that could have been avoided if CPS properly funded their employees and schools. School closings are also not uncommon in the city and they happen predominantly in low-income neighborhoods. The system makes it even more difficult for people in the hood to make better lives for themselves through education by limiting their access to education.

Quality education is hard to come by in the city and is permitted to a very lucky few. It is a real problem and a battle that suburban kids are oblivious to because having access to quality education is something they would never think twice about.

The fight for quality education is just one thing of many that suburbans will never understand. They could never fathom the thought of not being able to go to a certain area because it isn't safe. They couldn't think of having to help their friends grieve over another life taken from gun violence. They will never understand that we say "be safe" to everyone we say "goodbye" to because you never know when the dangers of the city will affect you next. They couldn't imagine seeing their families and friends uprooted from their longtime homes because gentrification has finally affected their neighborhood to the point that they can't afford to live there anymore.

Chicago to suburbans is a fun train ride downtown to go shopping on Magnificent Mile and visit the bean. It's taking pictures for their Instagram at a new coffee shop up north. It's going to the beach and playing beach volleyball. My city is so much more than that. My city is murals and art all over the building walls, and corner stores on every other block and dancing to house music all night long. My city hearing fireworks a month before and after the Fourth of July. My city is cultural festivals all summer long and driving down Lake Shore Drive with music blasting. My city is having the option to eat at Portillo's, Ricobene's or Connie's. Suburbans will never know my city so stop saying that you are from Chicago and act as if you do. It's about time that suburbans stop appropriating a culture that they have no idea even exists.
