An Open Letter to The Boy Who Left Me

I know, now, that what I have to offer is for someone who realizes just how spectacular I really am.

An Open Letter to The Boy Who Left Me
Pintrest

To the boy who left,

I'll never forget how we met was like a scene taken out of a classic romantic comedy. It was the first semester of my freshmen year of college, and little did I know that I would become head over heals for my professors nephew. I'll never forget the way I thought you were the cutest thing to walk the planet (still do), or how your smile warmed me up inside. I'll never forget the sweetness in your voice, or the way you looked at me. And I'll definitely never forget the night you left. I'd like to say you took everything when you left, my pride, confidence, and my heart. You left me like it was last minute decision, like I was nothing. And boy, did you make me feel like nothing. When you left it's like the person who I used to be left with you, the happy go lucky girl. Now I can't sleep, eat, or think without you coming across my mind. When I wake up in the middle of the night I still reach for you, and you know what the saddest part of it all? You didn't even give me a second glance. You just left, like I was easy to leave.

I'll never forget our inside jokes, the way you rubbed my back when I didn't feel well, and our debates over which show on Netflix is better. I'll miss our Steak 'n Shake dates, and even all your friends. I'll miss your tiny dog, and the way you angrily type on the keyboard. All the good memories will always make me smile, and maybe one day I'll truly be over you.

Also, I'd like to say thank you. Thank you for breaking my heart. It has truly opened my eyes to who I am and who I want to be. Thank you for showing me how a boy should treat me, and most of all thank you for putting up with all the complications I come with. You did teach me a lot of good life lessons, the best one being; I deserve someone I shouldn't have to beg to be with me. You showed me that if a guy gives up on me as fast as you did, that relationship isn't worth it. Even though we gave it our "best" I still think we could've tried harder to make "us" work. I had so many plans for us that I guess you didn't, and that's okay because now I'll share those ideas with someone who will stay. So, thank you for leaving me. It's the best thing you could've done.

Lastly, you probably think I hate you. I don't. I'm just very bitter towards you, and angry with how you gave up. I still play that weekend that ruined "us" in my head over and over. However, I don't hate you. I still very much love the person you are, just not the decision you made. I know, now, that what I have to offer is for someone who realizes just how spectacular I really am.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

8147

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
