I Am Finally Content With The Things I Have

Some people have it rough, they get hand me downs and more so why judge for having better than that

I Am Finally Content With The Things I Have

Living with what you have is what I have learned to do. Not everybody gets blessed with getting whatever they want. And me? I am simply okay with the things I have. Because I know that I do not have to get handed things all the time. Or get what I want all the time to know that life is not perfect. Or that my parents love me. They love me all the time no matter if they say yes or no. I am okay with the things I have.

I know my mother tries her hardest. Even when I get upset. She’s amazing. But often too many kids get handed whatever they want. They grow up expecting so much out of people and from the world. I have learned that you have to work your butt off around the house to get what you want. Even then not getting it half the time.

But living the life of only getting what you want sometimes and somethings is better than getting everything handed to me. I rather be able to want to ride around and buy something for myself, than someone buy or hand me an expensive new phone. Although it would be nice. Society plays a big role with not fitting in and that comes to play. My parents have taught me so much.

It's not all about getting what you want all the time. If you keep getting handed everything you want. How are you going to make it in the real world? As a matter of fact kids half the time do not even have jobs and want their parents to pay for everything. They are not going to make it without knowing that having a job is so important and even paying for your own stuff is better than making your parents support you with a job.

To me buying my own things is a major relief than stressing and feeling bad when my parents or someone buys me something. It is such a wrong feeling when someone buys you something expensive. I hate to break it to you but people who are spoiled don’t take the time to look past the people who have it bad. They just want to judge those who don’t get much because they have better things and better clothes etc. It is just a wrong world we live in and we get grouped by state of mind.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

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.


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.
