5 Habits I Have Formed in 2020, Thanks Corona

This year I have reflected and I have had made improvements


I have missed so much in my life by being quarantined; however, I know it has been for the best.

I miss the routine, the structure. I miss walking to class and seeing the faces of people I do not know. I miss the socialization. I miss going out with friends and being around people, making memories, especially in the college scene. But it has also brought closer bonds to family members and being welcomed back into my community arms from a distance of course.

Friendships have healed and new movements have been made in order for us to survive this quarantine.

1. Making a list


This list is not just any list, it is a list that reminds you about how much you have to be grateful for. You make two columns, and you list on each side what you miss during this quarantine, and what you have today. It has really reminded me of everything I have to be grateful for, such as having my health and my job still.

2. Running


I am a huge hater of running, I am the worst at cardio and am more of a lifter. But during this quarantine, I have learned to appreciate running outdoors and enjoying nature while at it.

3. Decluttering


I have decluttered so much of my room at home, and it has made me able to breathe in a way. I have enjoyed organizing my life and it has even improved my mental health by doing so.

4. Water Goals


I have made it a habit of mine to try to drink a lot more water than I normally used too, and I have personally noticed a huge difference in my metabolism, my skin, and my energy levels!

5. Engaging with the word//Reading


I recently bought a bible study guide to feel more connected to my faith, especially with church being virtual. As well, I use to be a huge avid reader but with the world being hectic along with my daily life I haven't been as big as a book worm as I use to be.. but now with quarantine, I have been able to re-pick up my favorite books.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

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.
