A picture is worth a 1,000 words, but a good IG caption is worth $1,000 bucks.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but a good Instagram caption seems like it's worth $1,000 bucks. Rather than searching through Pinterest for quotes, consider using short poems for a more unique caption. Popular Instagram poets like Rupi Kaur and Atticus are perfect with their 'Instapoetry', or short, concise poems designed to evoke strong emotions with few words.

In Love Her Wild, Atticus' Instapoetry discusses adventure, simplicity, beauty, and (of course) love, making his poems perfect to describe and caption your summer pics.

1.

She lived in me
like the first few days
of summer:
warm
and new
and
infinitely
possible.

2.

3.

I Just Need
You
And
Some
Sunsets .

4.

A storm was coming
but that's not what she felt.
It was adventure on the wind
and it shivered down her spine.

5.

6.

Every girl,
if you leave her alone
long enough,
will
eventually
sing
and dance.

7.

She wasn't
bored,
just restless
between
adventures.

8.

9.

She wanted to be rich
and she looked good on a yacht
but I wanted a girl
that looked good by a campfire
with freckles like sparks
to stain
the ashy sky.

10.

She found herself
over a long
and treacherous road
and the more
treacherous
the road became,
the more of
herself
she found.

11.

A good muse
gives you calm seas
in the morning
and storms
at night
to make you kiss the shore.

12.

13.

There is nothing quite
so pure in love
as a boy
and a girl
building castles
in the clouds.

14.

I think it's beautiful
the way you sparkle
when you talk about
the things you love.

15.

A sky full of stars
and he was staring at her.

16.

I hope to arrive at my death
late,
in love,
and a little drunk.

17.

18.

I will follow you,
my love,
to the edge of all our days,
to our very last
tomorrows.

May you spend your summer going on wild adventures, making new memories that you can capture and share. As Atticus says,

I aspire to be
an old man
with an old wife
laughing at old jokes
from a wild youth.

I hope you stay wild for the rest of your days, or at least for the summer.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

3677
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11666

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
