12 Reasons Why I Won't Find Prince Charming Anytime Soon

I am at a point in my life where many of my friends are in long-term relationships. Many of those same friends wouldn't mind spending the rest of their lives with their current significant others. I have always been the single friend who gives everyone else advice, and while I'm a little tired of third-wheeling, I don't think I'll be in a relationship anytime soon. Here's why:

1. I am terrified to make the first move.

When I see a cute boy, I pretty much keep my mouth shut... forever. I'm not likely to ask them to even hang out as friends, nonetheless on a date. I will never make the first move... I have zero confidence.

2. Commitment is kind of scary.

Not to sound old-fashioned or generalize, but commitment isn't what it used to be. People are usually never satisfied these days, and it's scary to see something so good go south so quickly.

3. Sometimes I expect too much.

From both myself and others. I get upset when I don't receive the results I expected, too. This would be a factor in a relationship that's hard to work with.

4. My mental health hasn't been great lately.

I cried over not being able to successfully cook ground meat yesterday.

5. Feelings are dumb.

Feelings can really blind you from seeing something for how it truly is.

6. Dating apps will never be my thing.

I'm never gonna be able to message first. I'm never gonna wanna hook up and I'm never gonna be smooth enough to interact with boys on Tinder.

7. I have zero time to relax.

My schedule is jam-packed with schoolwork, regular work, and other commitments. I don't even know when I'd be able to make time for a possible date.

8. I am not a patient person.

I'm working on it, but patience is so not my strong-suit.

9. I don't know how to flirt.

?????Is there a class for this??????

10. I don't go out enough to meet someone.

The parties I do go to are with friends and friends only.

11. I'm incredibly awkward around boys.

Palms sweaty, mom's spaghetti awkward.

12. I'm not actually actively looking for anything.

It'll happen when it happens, right?

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
