I Got The Best Life Advice From 3 Gov Ball Artists
Governors Ball Music Festival

I learned a lot about myself at Gov Ball. I learned I cannot go very long near a pizza station before I desperately need a slice. I learned I really cannot stand high school and college students, especially if they have been drinking vodka Gatorades in preparation for Chance the Rapper. I get it. I was in high school once, but it is 3:30 p.m. on a Friday and you are passed out in the middle of the field. I also learned a lot from Lo Moon, Saint Motel and Michael Blume.

After Friday's performances, I headed straight for amazon.com and checked out Denis Johnson. He is on my summer reading list and Lo Moon lead singer Matt Lowell agrees.

I highly recommend bringing "Jesus' Son," a collection of short stories, on your commute to your coveted internship in NYC.

When I am not reading, I am constantly thinking about my job, my love life (or lack thereof) and my friends and family. I am a perfectionist. What can I say? I am your classic Virgo. I need to chill.

Saint Motel does a little pre-show horseplay which I have added to my morning routine. No horse masks though, because then it would be weird. And for the record, Saint Motel is not weird.

After I do my morning horseplay I remind myself of why I am where I am and what I am doing every day to get to the next step. Michael Blume gave me some great advice and living each day for myself and no one else.

"Trust. Commit. Commit to doing and being what you want to do. And just give no fucks. There's just no time to give fucks. There's no fucking time."

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.
