2020... A Year For Myself

As the year 2019 came to an end, I started thinking of the typical New Year resolutions that never get done that I wanted to make for myself. Of course the typical workout, eat healthy, and be happy all came to mind, but I needed a change. A clean slate.

Throwback to summer of 2019, my friend and I were gossiping about boys, of course. We felt as if all of our good friends were starting to find that person for them. We started getting anxious about when our time was going to be. As a sophomore in college, I felt as if it was time to find my future husband.

After longing to have that relationship in my head, nothing ever happened. In fact, my friend and I were losing hope.

As I was sitting in my bed getting ready for my big New Years Eve event, I came to a realization. No wonder why I haven't found my man yet. It's all because I am not happy with myself! Of course I was happy during 2019, but I lost track of my health. I forgot to focus on me- watching what I put in my body, not working out, losing a close relationship to the Lord, and not taking out time to rest. Little did I know that I was just putting myself down.

I realized that when I am completely confident and happy with myself, that is when things will happen. I have to love myself and take care of myself to love and treasure my forever partner.

So I decided while getting ready for the New Years party, that I am not going to make a resolution that I will never complete, but to change and fix my life style.

It is currently January 8, 2020 and so far I have made slight differences to my everyday life and I already feel a change. I am happy, stronger, and on my journey to recovery.

I have been waking up earlier to workout. After that I do my devotional. I am prepared for classes and have my notebooks organized. I have been eating more natural foods. And guess what came along with all these changes? Me not thinking or worrying about any boys. Why? Because I am happy with myself.

2020, I am excited to see what you have in store for us!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.

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.

10511

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.
