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.
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.
