To The Ex That Got Over Me In A Heartbeat
wallpoper

I thought we were so in love. I was young and naïve. I was “that girl” that thought we were going to get married and live happily ever after. You were everything I could have ever wanted.

When you did the unthinkable and put me in a position where I was forced to choose, I chose myself. I chose to leave you because I knew that you had a lot of growing up to do. I always told myself that if we were really meant to be, we would find our way back to each other.

When I broke up with you, you were “heartbroken.” I was devastated, even though it was my own decision. However, unlike you, I put my time in effort into bettering myself. I focused on changing negative attributes of mine. I focused on school and work. You decided to get with another girl just a few short weeks after we broke up. It’s funny how I broke up with you because I thought you needed time to focus on bettering yourself, and you agreed, but yet you quickly formed another relationship.

The question that quickly made its way into my mind is one that I still think about to this day, one year later: Did he ever truly love me, or was he just in love with the idea of love? For you to get over someone in a heartbeat that you dated for over a year tells me that the latter is true.

You never loved me. You loved how I made you feel less lonely. You loved how you always had someone to hang out with. You loved how I paid for literally everything we did so you could spend your money on pointless things. But did you ever really love me for me? You are so gullible and so naive that you will literally “fall in love” with any girl who gives you the time of day.

As for me, I was truly in love with you. It took me almost a year to feel like I was ready to date again. But I do owe a lot to you. Because of you, I am picky in who I choose to date. I refuse to date anyone who doesn’t push me to by my best. I refuse to date someone who doesn’t strive to make his own self the best person he can be. I refuse to date anyone who doesn’t think about how his personal decisions will not only affect me and our relationship, but also everyone surrounding him. So thank you for making me see my own worth and what I deserve in a man. It took a while for me to realize that everything happens for a reason, and a lesson can always be learned in any heartbreak, but I am so glad I did. Now, I am happier than I have ever been.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6002

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!
