11 Things You Can Do Rather Than Worry About Ariana Grande And Pete Davidson’s Relationship

Their relationship (and anyone else's, for that matter) is not your business!


For about a month or so, the media has been swarming around Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, speculating on the details of their relationship. There have been tooo many tweets and comments about how ridiculous people think it is that they're already engaged and that they've already got matching tattoos and other tattoos for each other. News flash: it's none of your business what's happening in anyone else's relationship.

If they're happy, they're happy. Even if they're not, there are VERY few people that even have a right to say something at that point. Today, there are about a million other things for y'all to do rather than scrutinizing someone else's happiness. Here's a few:

1. Get off Twitter

Seriously, guys, it's summer and some of you have nothing better to do than top sit on Twitter and comment on things that have absolutely nothing to do with you in any way, shape, or form. I'm guilty of this myself honestly, but seriously. The best memories usually come when you get off your phone and venture off into the world.

2. Go for a bike ride

Grab a friend and take a ride around your city. Maybe stop somewhere and take a quick photo shoot or get some ice cream along the way. It's a great way to get in shape, hang out with a friend or two, and kill some time minding your own business.

​3. Look into colleges, internships, scholarships, or jobs

I am a firm believer that the more you look into something and figure out what you really want to do, the happier you'll be in the long-term. Nearly anyone is capable of getting a boring and tedious job that'll pay the bills, but if you really explore your interests and delve into the things that you love, the pay off will be well worth it. If you love what you're doing, you'll never work a day in your life. Put in the effort now, so you don't live with regret later.

​4. Learn something new

There are endless amounts of skills for a person to have, so rather than honing your celebrity stalking skills further, why not take up a new hobby? Learn to play an instrument, join a sports team, find out how to make a perfect lava cake every time. The internet provides the gateway to learning nearly anything you could ever want to know. Use it to your benefit.

​5. Read a book

There are so many incredible books out there and there are new books coming out literally every single day. You could take a trip into thousands of different lives for 100 or so pages. Reading is truly worthwhile and I think that everyone should at least read a single book a year. It's TRAGIC that some people don't even get that far. Y'all are MISSING OUT.

​6. Binge watch a show or movie series

They are CONSTANTLY pumping out new material for TV shows and new movies and it's only fair for people to enjoy it after the creators have spent large portions of their lives slaving away to provide you with that content. You could binge watch all 9 seasons of The Office before Netflix takes it off January 1st. Or get into a series with a cult following like Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead. There has to be a reason so many people are so into it. Enjoy a few episodes and see if you can't find out why.

​7. Get informed on current issues

This one will take up A LOT of your time, but if you're worried about the Grande/Davidson saga, it seems like you'll have plenty of time on your hands for this. Learn about what's going on with immigration/deportation, gun control, North Korea, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, new policy, old policies, and everything in between. Educating yourself on every aspect of an issue is the absolute best way to fully be able to understand the way the world is and form your own opinions on everything going on. There are too many uneducated people out there making harsh judgments and calls on things that they actually know very little about. If we all work just a little bit harder to know what we're talking about before forming opinions, I think the world would have much less conflict.

​8. Spend time with your loved ones

Life is precious and people come and go. Spend time with the people that you care about while you still have them in your life. If they're really worth your time, you'll enjoy the time that you spend with them anyway. Maybe even foster your own relationship with someone rather than worrying about Ariana and Pete.

​9. Make a bomb Spotify playlist

Sometimes when I get stressed, one of the most exciting things to do is to make a new Spotify playlist. Playlists are delightful because if you make enough of them, you can capture every interest and every feeling that you might have. You'll never find yourself at a loss for music to listen to exactly the way you want it to be. If it really will appease you that much, add some Ariana Grande to it so you won't be too far from worrying about her life and choices.

​10. Write

Writing has always been a favorite pastime of mine. There are literally limitless possibilities when you write. There are so many different platforms, mediums, and styles for writing. You can write about literally anything and do it nearly anywhere. It's an activity that can help you express just about anything and that can be done just about anywhere. Write Ariana and Pete fanfic even if you're STILL really that worried about what they're doing.

​11. Literally anything else

The bottom line is that folks on the internet never seem to know where to stop. Let couples (famous or otherwise) be happy and have their relationship to themselves without speculation about their every move. The internet has a way to kill a good thing. If you're willing to interfere with someone else's life or potentially ruin a good thing for a meme, then you are the worst kind of person.

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.

The Kate Spade Foundation Follows Through On Their Million Dollar Promise

One year and a million dollars later, the fight against mental health issues continues.


Going through a mental illness can be one of the most isolating and lonely feelings known to man. When you're in that state of mind it's hard to imagine that anyone could feel as bad as you do right then and there let alone have gone through something similar. Not only that, but many people will suffer in silence, avoiding speaking up or asking for help. Which, if anyone who's battled a mental illness would know, is not an uncommon feeling.

It's hard to speak up and ask for help, especially with something that feels so deeply personal and at times hard to describe. Many people find ways to cope and regain a balance in their lives. Many others never find that balance.

Roughly one year ago, on June 5, 2018, Kate Spade took her own life after battling depression and anxiety for nearly her entire life. It seemed completely out of the blue and nearly everyone was taken aback. But that's the nature of mental illness in some ways. We don't understand the severity or how deeply someone may have been struggling with their mental illness until it's too late.

The reality of mental health is often harrowing, especially when it comes to access to help. An increasing number of Americans are seeking help for a mental health condition but millions still remain with unmet needs or an undiagnosed condition. Many states with a mental health work provider workforce have only one worker for every four individuals requesting therapy.

But there are organizations across the nation who are working to make mental health care not only more accessible but affordable as well. The Kate Spade New York Foundation has just completed their $1 million donation pledge to mental health services such as The Jed Foundation and the Crisis Text Line.

Kate Spade's death, alongside those such as Anthony Bourdain and Robin Williams, proved to many of us that mental health issues affect us all regardless of our wealth, fame or status. In the time following their deaths, I felt that we've become more honest with ourselves and worked hard to destigmatize mental health as a whole. Her death raised the conversation surrounding mental health to new levels that I don't think had previously been touched. Regardless, there's always more work to be done and we should all aspire to live in a world where those affected with these illnesses no longer feel alone.
