Breakups suck, but when you don't have to do it alone it's not as bad. However, if you choose to pick up the pieces with someone who is maybe a little more than a friend, it can be hard and confusing. What's even MORE confusing is when you're both trying to heal.

We would hang out, like a lot. We talked all the time, facetimed at night, and we were always there for each other. We made long drives to visit each other, and I guess I started to fall for him. He didn't feel the same in the end, I guess. And I'm okay with that now, but I wasn't for a while.

He started talking to a new girl, which was pretty common during the time we spent "talking", and I wasn't sure it was going anywhere. He always got a little distant, but it was never serious. But this time, it was like night and day. I would get "streaks" and little to nothing else. He tried to stay a good friend and call to "check" on me, but it was always late, when your new girlfriend had already gone to bed. We went from talking 24/7 to hardly anything.

I was hurt. I always felt like I was a second choice for him. His fall back in case his new Tinder find didn't work out and for a while I went with it because it didn't feel like anything special. But then I started to fall for him, and he went a different way. I miss hanging out like we used to (as friends, you know), but I realize we might not be able to go back to that, and that's okay. I still care, but I'm glad we both moved on. I also learned that I should always feel like a priority. I shouldn't feel that pit in my stomach wondering how you feel.

So, thank you, I guess, for the lesson. I'm not happy you hurt my heart. I hope she makes you happy, because I know I'm way happier where I am now than I thought I was back then.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
