7 Confessions Of A Former 'Directioner'

7 Confessions Of A Former 'Directioner'

If Harry was your favorite, you’re a fake fan.

It was my eighth-grade year and life was great — the year I fell in love with "One Direction." I cried over the boys on a weekly basis and knew the words to all the songs. I obviously had a poster hanging on every open wall in my bedroom, and my Liam Payne cardboard cutout never failed to scare people when they walked into my room. I spent all my time on Twitter making drafts to spam the boys as soon as they were online and had "One Direction" themed sleepovers with my homies. So, if you were like me and loved "One Direction" until the bitter end (because we all know it's not the same without Zayn,) here are seven confessions of a former Directioner.

1. I hated anyone who pronounced Louis as “Lewis"

He's British, get it right, b*tch.

2. If my Twitter fan account following dipped under 1000, I would hardcore self-promote

Follow for follow, am I right? My Twitter account @liamsunfl0wers has lost its spark, but the thousands of tweets are still out there in the Internet Universe.

3. I stayed up until 5 AM waiting for a Twitcam

RIP to the X Factor days, but all the stupid jokes and screaming are still available on YouTube.

4. I believed Larry Stylinson is real

The bromance was one for the books, but there were full on conspiracy theories about how Harry and Louis were in a relationship and their management team, Modest Management, was trying to control them. Modest! was always the enemy.

5. When presenters at award shows called them a “British boy band" I was legitimately angry because everyone knows that Niall is Irish

How hard is it to say "British/Irish boy band?"

6. I read the fanfiction

There was some weird sh*t on Tumblr back in the One Direction days and I read it all.

7. My friends and I had competitions to see who could have more posters on their bedroom wall

Is her room blue or purple? I'm not sure, but one thing is certain — she won that one. Any 1D magazine was a must-purchase.

From watching the 7-hour live stream of 1D Day to memorizing the words to all five albums, there was a lot of time and effort put into being a true Directioner. When Zayn left we were all hurt and we hated on anyone who's favorite song was "What Makes You Beautiful."

RIP to the original One Direction squad 2010-2015

The End Of The Semester As Told By Todd Chrisley

Because we're all a little dramatic like Todd sometimes.

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student’s semester are always crazy hectic. We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.

3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.

6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.

7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in 2 days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.

13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.

14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.

You're finally back to your old self.

A Step By Step Of How Your Thanksgiving Will Actually Go

Every year we think it will go differently, and yet...


It's pre-Christmas, and it will be a day of stress, love, and wonderful food.

1. You wake up to the sounds of a parent slamming pots and pans on the counter top


It is time. The day has begun and your mom or dad will start yelling for you any minute.

2. You finally make it downstairs and you're assigned your tasks before family arrives


There will be the "Make this table," or the "Dust the entire house because your cousins are coming and they won't notice but your aunt sure will. Oh, and please stay out of the kitchen." You know, the usual.

3. You try to eat breakfast and lunch but honestly you can not WAIT for dinner tonight and the smells coming from the kitchen are overwhelming


What are we celebrating again? I'm just excited to eat.

4. You rush and make your way to the grocery store at least once (maybe twice) because your parents can't leave the kitchen


"You would think mom wouldn't forget anything for tonight, but I guess it is pretty easy to forget gravy when you're making a million other dishes," you think to yourself as you try to defend the forgetfulness.

5. You spend a few hours feeling bored as you wait for your family members to arrive because you still aren't allowed in the kitchen and you find yourself watching that one "Friends" episode to kill some time. 


Football or "Friends"? Honestly I should ask my mom if she needs more help but I'll just keep watching this.

6. Your family finally arrives 


It is suddenly overwhelmingly loud and you now get to talk about your life for the next few hours. Food cannot come soon enough.

7. Hours and hours seemed to go by but dinner is finally ready


At llllaaaassssstttttttttt, my dinnnnnnneeeeerrrrrrrr will be mmmmiiiinnneeeeeeeeee!

8. You have to sit through and listen to either heated debate or six conversations at once while you eat 


Honestly, I'll just keep quiet and enjoy these mashed potatoes for their deliciousness.

9. You get one look from your mom and suddenly your busting the whole table


But hey, there are worse things in life. For instance, I'm not even toughing that turkey carcass I don't care what my parents say.

10. It's round two. You've been waiting for that pie all day 


There's this cool thing called a dessert stomach where you have more room for dessert than you did five minutes ago. Isn't that great?!?

11. Your family slowly starts to leave, and the food coma starts to settle in 


It's been a great meal, even if there was some arguing. At the end of it all, it's still been a great thanksgiving.
