To The Teachers Who Made Me Want To Become A Teacher,

You may not have realized it at the time, but each and every one of you truly changed my life. Not only did you teach me the material you were required to, but you taught me so much more. You taught me to work hard for what I want in life. You taught me to chase after all of my dreams, even the ones that don't seem reasonable. You taught me that even the smallest actions matter and even the tiniest moments can have the biggest impact on someone's life.

Thank you all for teaching me that it's OK to fail as long as you don't stop trying. Thank you for believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself. Thank you for showing me that it's OK to be quirky and that fitting in is overrated. Thank you for showing me how to think for myself and form my own opinions. Thank you for fostering my love for reading and writing. Thank you for making me a better student, leader, friend, and overall person.

For years when I was trying to figure what I wanted to do with my life, I always said that I wanted to make a positive impact on people and change the world however I could. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that some of the most positive influences in my life were teachers.

Teachers have this fantastic opportunity not only to encourage students to become passionate about their chosen subjects, but to offer unconditional love, guidance, and encouragement to their students, especially the ones who may not receive those things from anywhere else.

Thanks to you all, I have finally realized my true passion for teaching and helping others, and I am so excited to begin my journey as a future educator. I am confident that this is the right path for me, and I owe it all to the teachers that made me fall in love with learning.

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.
