These are all games you once loved or possibly still do. These games came out several years ago and still remain semi-popular in some audiences. Whether you were a die-hard player for a month or still a casual player you certainly can relate to these games in the memories of how popular they once were. In no particular order here are 5 games that you used to go crazy for...

Pokemon Go

Yes this is a game that has only been out for a few years and it ha dropped in popularity however many people were once hooked on this game, needing to relive their childhood dreams of being a Pokemon master and catching them all. The game designers have done a lot to rejuvenate the game such as allowing trading, holding community days for certain rarer pokemon, and allowing gym and trainer battles but nothing will ever be as much fun as getting a group of friends together and walking through the park catching super cute pokemon on your phones back in 2016.

Flappy Bird

This fun little game came out in 2013 and it grew in popularity very quickly, spawning many different versions of this game. It was a sensational game where you would try to get the little bird through the green pipes of varying lengths and as a result of the bird flying all crazy it was difficult. Many people grew bored with it but before that day came it was all we could talk about and it resulted in many hours being spent crying and laughing and getting frustrated that the bird would not just go through the pipes.

Candy Crush

First being seen in 2012, this game is quite addictive. It is a standard puzzle solving games with multiple levels and just like flappy bird has many different spin-offs that are just as much fun. It was all the rage back in 2012 and for the most part has stayed relatively popular with younger and older audiences.

Ballz

This game is really simple, as you raise in level you get more balls to destroy the bricks that increase in number with each level. It became a competition of sorts for some people trying to have the higher levels.

Angry Birds

This game first game out in 2009, yes it has been around for almost a full decade its hard to believe, there were several spin-off games including Angry Birds Rio, Star Wars, and Angry Birds 2, but no matter which one is your favorite you can't say you didn't at least play it once. It has managed to stay pretty popular as far as the franchise for the movies go and the plushies however the game that originally spawned it all has definitely dropped off the charts in place of its other spin-offs. we still love all the birds and we will always have a soft spot in our hearts for the adorable but mean green pigs that serve as the villains.

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
