How can you tell when you are in love?

You can't... you just know it

I think I've been in love

No you haven't

Why do you Say so?

Because, you think. I said you'll know

But I was in a long distance relationship for almost two years

Time has nothing on love and that does not mean anything.

Why else would I be with someone I hardly see for that long?

The right question is... What about him did you fall in love with?

I never met him, I don't know


Ok maybe not him, I was in love with the other guy

How do you know?

Because I was stupid, i broke all my laws to please him even when he did not care and threw it back in my face.

No, you were not in love

Why else would I be so stupid to put him before everything?

You were stupid because you knew you did not have to take the blame, you knew you could blame it on love, that's not love!

Okay maybe not them, I was in love with the other, other guy

How so?

Well I always liked to be with him...

You sound like you were lonely and vulnerable that's not love.

Oh wow... maybe not him but I was definitely in love with this other, other, other guy

Go on

He was so mature, like very mature, he had amazing lips, and every time he's present, my heart gets heavy, when he hugs me, I just feel so alive! His voice was like melody to my ears.

That's not love

What!?... What do you mean?

You saw something you like and your hormones got excited.

This is confusing

No it’s really not.


How then do I know when I'm in love?

When you stop looking forward to it, when you cannot question It, when it happens... you will know

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

As a first-year college student, I've been doing a lot of meeting and introducing myself to people, often with the classic format of "name, hometown, major".

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

It's definitely not easy, but it's something so many kids are struggling with right now.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
