To My Grandparents

I want you to know how lucky I am to have you.

To My Grandparents

Many people aren’t blessed with the fortune of knowing their grandparents. The bond between grandchild and grandparents is like no other. They are not your parents, but instead, they're friends, partners in crime and cheerleaders. No matter what struggles come up or what mistakes are made, grandparents will always be there for you. Their love for their grandchildren really is unconditional. However, we often do not tell our grandparents how important they are and how much their love means to us. Here is what I want my grandparents to know:

To My Grandparents,

Since day one, you have been there for me. You have shown me unconditional love, been there when I couldn’t talk to my parents and were the support system I always needed.

I remember all the things you did with me as a child. From hockey games to museums, to circuses and zoos, to the beach and on vacations, you showed me what fun was and the value of family.

Life is going to change, as we both grow older, and with this, our relationship with each other will change. We may not see each other as much as we hoped, but our love for one another will always remain the same. I want to make these promises to you to ensure you to not be scared of what the future will bring.

I promise to always be there for you in the future. As the years pass, life will get harder. I will be there for you every step of the way. I will be there to bring you to the store, to help you with your bills, to go with you to your appointments. I will be by your side during your times of pain as well as your times of joy. I will be there when you can no longer do things for yourself. Do not be embarrassed to ask for help. I want to help you. I want to make your life as stress-free as it can be. You did so much for your grandchildren, and it will be my turn to do for you.

I promise to not get upset with you if you don’t understand or fully comprehend something. I may raise my voice, but know that I am not upset with you. I may act like assisting and helping you is such a burden, but please know that it is not. I want you to be comfortable to ask for help. I want you to ask for help from me.

I promise to continue your legacy. I will hold with me the values you instilled in me from my early childhood. You worked so hard to raise your kids, and now your grandkids, and to keep your name strong. I will live my life always thinking of you. I will remember every moment with you and raise my kids from what you have taught me. Someday, I will love my grandkids just as much as you loved me.

I am so lucky to have known all four of my grandparents and will cherish every moment spent together forever. It may not be said enough, but please know that I love all of you and will hold onto everything you have given me. I am who I am today because of all of you. Your influence and love has shaped me into the man I am today, and for that I will be forever grateful.

With love always,
A Grateful, Loved, and Lucky Grandson

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.
