35 Thoughts Every Girl Has While Online Shopping

You know the addiction is real when you won't check your bank statement.

Anyone ever start their homework and magically end up on Amazon buying a memory foam bean bag? Please say yes or I'll be slightly embarrassed (mostly offended because the bean bag is magical!)

Online shopping is a whole different ball game than shopping at the outlets or mall. It involves precision, and knowing every discount code to type in to get free shipping (cause we're lazy and would rather buy it online than head to the store.) While it has it's disadvantages with having to know your exact measurements for every inch of your body, it's like having and endless birthday when checking the mail. I receive items I completely forgot I bought constantly! Whatever the case may be, we all spend some of our free time online shopping and buying items we'll most likely never even use.

Here are some thoughts you may experience while browsing those bean bag chairs I know you're looking at now:

1. *Studying* Oh I have that concert coming up, let me find something to wear.

2. I shouldn't have started this.

3. Look at all the clothes I could get!

4. Key word "could," I'm broke.

5. Okay we'll be wise about this.

6. I've got some spending money, I can buy 4 items and be good.

7. I need a new black tank after mine ripped last night.

8. Tanks are $5...

9. Well, I guess getting every color won't hurt.

10. Look! I'm only at $25.11. Now shorts.

12. Oh these would be perfect for the festival!

13. Okay, let me just get my size.

14. *Out of stock* or NOT.

15. How could they be so cruel to me.

16. Making me fall in love with items I'll never be able to get, and no I'm not getting on a wait list for it.

17. Okay, let me check out the sale items now.

18. I probably should've started with those but that's okay.

19. NO WAY! They have those sandals I've been dying for ON SALE!!

20. This is fate! I was supposed to be shopping today.

21. *Adds to cart* $40.23 now?

22. I could probably get one more thing and make it $50.

23. Let's check bathing suits since summer is approaching.

24. JK, my summer bod is no where to be found.

25. Maybe a one piece will cover my tummy.

26. It'll look like I'm trendy too since everyone has one now.

27. I don't need this cover up but it popped up and it goes perfect with the one piece!

28. FOCUS. $75 in, when did that happen!?

29. Why am I like this?

30. Okay, check out now. Don't turn back.

31. I guess I could get rid of the red and yellow tank top. I don't own these colors for a reason.

32. My credit card is already on here? I have a problem.

33. BUT LOOK! There's another SALE!!!

34. I'll look only. Just. LOOK.

35. Well, I can survive without eating this week...

An Open Letter To The Judgmental People In My Hometown

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value.

Dear judgemental, simple minded people from my hometown,

I am sorry that I have never met your level of perfection.

Coming from a small town, everyone settles to the norm of the people around them. Unlike you all, I have always been a little bit different.

I've never understood why everyone always seems to feel the need to talk down to the next person. People love to gossip about a situation as long as the situation has nothing to do with them. For every move I made, someone was always there to bring out the negativity in the situation. You all are always sweeping around somebody else's doorstep when I know your doorstep is not clean. Maybe it is time to buy a new broom. I know that I cannot please everybody and that I will also not be liked by everybody. However, I deserve respect just as the next person.

SEE ALSO: Forgiving Someone Who Didn't Ask For It

I hope for the sake of the future generations of our small town, you all can learn to be more accepting to change.

I hope that no one judges your children like some of you all have judged me. I hope that the people that you love and care about are welcomed and accepted for who they are.

If we put as much time into being better people or helping others like you put into judging others, the world would be a much better place.

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value. Pebbles are perfectly round. I'd much rather be a diamond, one in a million, than a pebble that fits in.


The one whose every move you criticize

Today, I'm Grateful For The Accident That Nearly Ended Everything

It changed my life for the worse — and then for the better.


Four years ago, on August 5th, 2014, I was in a car accident on highway I-80. We swerved over the median and into oncoming traffic. I was in the front passenger seat so I was at the point of impact. I broke my right hand, my right leg and I got a traumatic brain injury. I was in the hospital for almost two months and then was in therapy for a few months after that.

Though it was subtle, the accident changed me as a person and at first, I hated it. I wanted to go back to the way I was before and didn't understand why I couldn't. But looking back, I'm happy the accident happened and turned me into who I am today.

It's an odd thing to say, right? I'm glad my life and personality were almost permanently changed due to this traumatic car accident. But let me explain.

Before the accident, I was a shy little thing that didn't like to talk about my problems. I was depressed but no one knew so I wasn't getting the help I needed. After the accident, however, it was like a dam had broken in me. I couldn't stop talking and I was telling everyone about my problems. I was an introvert that suddenly had to navigate how to be an extrovert. I had to learn where the line was of what was appropriate to say and talk about and what wasn't.

Thankfully, after four years, I have a therapist to help me with my mental health and I think I have the whole socializing thing down... for the most part.

Another benefit of the accident is that is showed me who my real friends are. Most people who I considered to be my friends visited me for my first month out of the hospital. They would tell me how classes are going and how they missed me but then they would talk about themselves and their problems like I was only there to listen; I wasn't supposed to talk about my problems but I did. Some of them drifted away and didn't text me or ask me to hang out with them after a few months. It really hurt and made me really sad and wonder, "What did I do?" I felt so alone.

Eventually, I realized that how they were acting was not my fault and if they treated me like that, then they weren't my real friends. It taught me how I deserve to be treated and it's okay if the only company you have is you.

One of the best good things that came out of the whole hospitalization thing is that I got a dog! His name is Winchester, Chester for short, and he is a mini husky. I picked him out from pictures my dad showed me and I liked that he had one eye that was half brown and half blue. I went with my dad to pick him up from the breeder in Kansas only a week after I got out of the hospital. Chester sat on my lap the whole three hours home. My parents got him for me because they thought it would be nice for me to have a little companion and they were right. He doesn't bark or pee in the house, he's loyal, he can be playful but he can also be lazy. He is the bestest little puppers ever and I love him so much!

Moral of the story: If you want a dog but your parents won't get you one, get in an accident that almost kills you and then maybe they'll get you a dog. (But really don't do that.)

Throughout the years, I've spent too much time thinking about what would have happened if I hadn't gotten in the car that day. But I think this was something that was meant to happen to me. If I hadn't been in that accident, I might've gotten hurt a different way and my injuries could have been worse. I am actually thankful that this happened to me because if it hadn't, who knows the kind of person I would be today?

Plus, if it hadn't happened, I wouldn't have gotten a dog and he makes my life so much better so I'm glad I have him.
