Young people are known for making split decisions, right?

Moving across the country for a significant other? Buying the car (or just something really expensive)they probably don't need and probably can't afford. Getting tattoos they've only thought about for less than an approved amount of time?

Which ones are you guilty of? Because I know which one sings true for me.

All types of people are fans of tattoos. Men, woman, children, older people you'd expect, people you wouldn't expect...the list goes on. And I admire the people that think about their tattoo for less than a week and by Saturday, they have it on them permanently.

I admire that.

Who's to say that split decisions are any better than the ones that people think long and hard about? Your mom, probably. But that's beside the point.

Some people see tattoos on other people and then they use that as inspiration for their own tattoos. Some people see other's people's tattoo and steal the idea completely. But whose decision is it?

Is it the person whose body it is? The tattoo artist? Your mom's?

Who knows?

Sure, everyone tries to be rational and say that "Remember, tattoos are permanent. Think them through."

How many other decisions do you think through? Having Taco Bell 5 times a week?

Trust me, that has a lasting effect on you as well. (Doesn't stop me, but it definitely does)

Do you think through calling out of work knowing that's the main reason your bank account isn't a negative balance right now?

Do you think through who you choose to be roommates with knowing you might get that psychotic one who thinks she doesn't have to contribute anything or even be a decent person (been there, done that)?

I don't wanna be that person to tell you to stop thinking things through, but don't be as afraid of those split decisions. Don't let those things stop you from living your best life.

Sometimes those split decisions will be the best choices you've ever made.

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.


Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.
