Four Months After My Stomach Surgery
Madeline Dziak

Oh, look what we have here. It's Maddie again talking about her stomach surgery that happened a while ago. Will we ever get over her talking about this because honestly, I am tired of it.

Well, Janet, let's just say I hope this is the last thing I write about my stomach surgery until the one year of it because this in itself is just a thing for me to say how my summer since my surgery has been.

Ah, so yes. My stomach surgery again. This is article number...five?...about my surgery and honestly I'm tired of it also but the due date is today and I needed an idea and after watching a 45 second video of Jungkook from BTS rapping RM's part from the rap line's song "Ddaeng" (listen to it) from their fifth muster fan meet and spending an entire weekend with my family from New York and still not having any clue what to write, I decided to go back to this topic and write another one.

Then next March, let's expect me doing a one year since my stomach surgery. Unless I decide to write one in September about six months but let's be real there's so much to say.

So I don't know if I mentioned this in an article I wrote about it already, although I might have, but let's start with what happened one month out of surgery. I got an infection in my incision. That was by far the worst experience I had to deal with. I went to the emergency room (after discovering it at five in the morning when I had to go to the bathroom), and the surgeon was so generous enough to come in to look at it and confirm it was infected. The day before Easter!

We drained the incision (horrible experience) and then I stayed home the rest of the day. I ended up having packing to put where the surgeon opened the incision and drained it and being the scared person I was, I decided to ask the health center at school to do it for me. I did that for a while until the day I had to have a follow up I could get it in myself.

We then changed the packing to an easier one and I could change it once every other day. Then I was able to do Greek Showcase for Greek Week and it was a blast.

Once all of that was done, I packed up my dorm and went home for the summer, my incision hole getting smaller and everything almost normal. The last thing that was left was getting the okay from my surgeon that I was fine.

Then that day came, and I swear I almost cried.

Everything was done, and I am truly back to normal.

It's currently July and I have been feeling good. I have gained over twenty pounds since the start of this whole thing, and I feel so much better. With my job being outside for a good chunk of time, I was able to get a great tan that I haven't had in years. I feel more energetic and I'm getting more sleep (even though I'm still so tired after that). I enjoy things like being outside, eating, and even dancing again.

With all of the past few months behind me, I'm now looking towards the future.

So time for me to get some lunch now.

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. 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.


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.
