To The Girl Who Loves You Next...
Jourdyn Alford

I’ll never understand why this happened with him and to be honest, four years ago you weren’t even a thought in our heads. You have maybe heard about me or just know of me. Who knows what he is calling it these days. God only knows what he has told you about me, part of me doesn’t even want to know. I’m almost certain it is more bad than good, but that’s because he has a tendency to run from things that touch him emotionally. You see, you are not only in love with my first love but my ex-best friend, and for that reason, I am secretly cheering the two of you on from afar.

There are a few things that you need to know about before you take on this crazy adventure hand in hand with him. His past is deep, dark and cloudy. Don’t force him to talk it will happen when he is ready. If you truly believe in him, wait. Wait for him to peel back those layers because the soul of his is like one you will never encounter again.

He’s an asshole, but I promise you it’s in the funniest way possible. He will have you laughing until you have tears in your eyes, and pain so deep in your stomach you’ll be forced to stop. When he’s hurt he’ll say things out of spite. Don’t take offense to it, just give him space. But always come back, never leave. Trust me if he is loving you he wants you there, he doesn’t just let anyone in.

He will almost always push your buttons; he loves to test people. He won’t always make the right choices or know exactly how to handle a situation and that is when he will need you the most. Be his best friend. Be his biggest cheerleader. And NEVER let him feel as though he is not valued.

His favorite baseball team is the Red Socks. And football? Die hard Notre Dame. If you’re with him you probably love sports too, which will most definitely come in handy since his weekends are consumed with football. But if you don’t know anything about anything, show up with a bottle of Advil on a Saturday afternoon and start asking 100 questions about the game, I’ve been there done that.

You probably think I hate you or have some deep resentment toward you, but in all honesty, I don’t. Over the years I’ve learned that some people enter your life to make a lasting impact but are not meant to stay. I’ll never really understand why it wasn’t him, but God’s plan is always bigger than our own, and for him his plan was you.

Eventually, you’ll figure all this out and then some, knowing him like the back of your hand. You’re loving the man, and I loved the boy. The man who deserves the entire world and then some. Don’t break his heart. Kiss him goodnight. And don’t take the responsibility of loving him lightly.


The one who loved him first

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
