It Is Time For Us To Break-Up

When something consumes your life so much, it is time to give it a rest.

It Is Time For Us To Break-Up

I think it is time we take a break.

It is not you, it is me…but I guess it is also you. Remember when we first met? The room was full of people searching for the same thing I was. I was interested in others, not even noticing your lovely glow. I went around looking for what I pictured would be the perfect one, and then I saw you. You were not my first choice at the time, but the more I got to know you I fell quickly in love. I knew I had to have you.

Our relationship started off great. I would hang out with you in my free time and you only captured my attention an hour or two a day. As we got to know each other more, I had you exactly how I wanted you to be. I made changes and adjusted everything about you to be the perfect one for me. You complied and even offered suggestions of things that I may like, movies I would want to see, places I would like to go, and even restaurants that matched my interests. You knew my likes and dislikes almost better than anyone else.

Then, I tried to make new relationships. When I would take you to dinner you would take my attention off of my family and friends. You would nag at me until I paid attention to you. In the middle of the night you would wake me up with your incessant noises just to try and let me know what was going on at the time. The more you became obsessed, the more I became obsessed. Soon, you were the first thing I thought about in the morning and the last thing I thought about at night.

It grew so bad that when I was without you, I would grow anxious. Who would help me capture the memories that I wanted to keep? Who would allow me to keep a public diary with them at all times? Who would give me the latest gossip and the latest news?

One day, I was scrolling through my pictures and noticed that you were the most reoccurring thing in them. Why could I not enjoy my life without you there? Why could I not take in everything around me by myself? Why could I not enjoy just being with my friends? Why must you always interrupt when I am trying to create REAL relationships?

Our relationship is no longer the one I wanted it to be. I wanted you to be there when I needed you and occasionally when I was bored, but now you consume my life. I need to take in the world without you there. I need to enjoy being in the present and not worry so much about who knew. I need to make new relationships instead of you constantly reminding me of my old ones. I need to make my own life without you.

That is why, my dear cellphone, we need to take a break.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
