Is your life over? Probably.

8 Terrifying Thoughts You Have When You Lose Your BuckID
The Huffington Post

You know the feeling: casually sliding your finger across the back of your phone to check for you BuckID and stopping cold, your heart in your throat, when you feel nothing there. If you're lucky (or much more responsible than some of us), then you've never lived the terror. If you have, then you know the feeling of losing the most important part of yourself. Here are 8 thoughts you have when you lose your BuckID.

1. Why am I human piece of unorganized trash?

For once, you actually thought you had yourself together. When you lose your BuckID, you suddenly remember that you are almost never together and the fact that you held on to your ID for this long is astonishing in its own way.

2. No way I'm paying $25 for a new one.

You're a college student, which is actually a synonym for being poor. How dare they ask for $25 to essentially restore your existence at OSU while you're already shelling out thousands of dollars to be there in the first place?

3. Am I ever going to eat again?

Your BuckID is your ticket into the dining halls. Without it, you are hungry. If you don't find it, who knows what you'll resort to eating. The squirrels are pretty friendly on campus....

4. If someone picked it up, my whole life is in their hands.

You start to panic when you consider that you may have dropped it on the ground in the middle of campus, right where any one of Ohio State's 60,000 students could have picked it up. There goes your dorm, your meal swipes, your dining dollars, your BuckID cash, your student ID number, your checking account, your middle name you never tell anyone, and that nasty picture of you from orientation. RIP, Life.

5. My roommate is a saint.

As you frantically text all of the people you've ever met on campus asking if they've seen your BuckID, your roommate valiantly says that they'll tear apart your room looking for it to give you piece of mind. Then, they'll come get you so you can get into the room. Bless you, sweet roommate, for being a source of sanity in my moment of hysteria.

6. Darn, I can't do laundry.

Since the laundry rooms make you pay with BuckID cash, it looks like that ever-growing pile of smelly laundry will live to see another day. How sad.

7. Now that I'm locked out of my room, someone else besides me will know that I'm a mess.

Whether you ask for help looking for it, go to the front desk for a loaner, or get it replaced entirely, at least one person will know that you are, in fact, a hot mess. There's no more hiding it. The truth is out, and now you have to own it.

8. At what point is it acceptable to tape it to my forehead?

Whether this is your first loss or twenty-seventh loss, eventually you'll wonder if there's a way you can always keep track of it. Duct tape is quite sticky, or you could get a sticky pouch for the back of your phone. It's all about personal preference now. We all know that no matter what you do, you're going to lose it again.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
