It's Supposed To Be Super Birthday Not Super Bowl Sunday

It is my birthday, I could care less about the Super Bowl.

Andrea (me)

I have never been into football. I tried to understand it, and now I don't even do that. *rolls eyes* I could absolutely care less about it. My dad used to play football, and when we would go to the high school on Friday nights for football, I found something else to occupy my time. My dad used to think I wasn't trying. I would tell him I was, but the truth is, I probably wasn't. I found no interest in the sport, so why try. Football isn't for everyone, and I am not ashamed to say I am one of those people.

Instead, I love to do scrapbooking or take a long, hot bath while watching Netflix. I am currently on season 11 of Grey's Anatomy and I am determined to find out what happens. I remember for my 21st birthday, instead of going out so I could get a drink, my husband and dad watched the Super Bowl in the living room of our apartment. I did some scrapbooking while playing with our cat Chipper. Anyone else having or had this issue??

The half time show is equally just as boring. *yawns* "Did you see so and so during the half time show?!" Nope. No, I did not, but I am sure you did, and you are going to tell me about it. Honestly, I could care less about who is performing. I know there are some people who only watch the half time show, but again it doesn't spark my interest. I refuse to watch the Super Bowl, even if it is not the game itself. I would rather read a book or write something. I can drift far away from the Super Bowl and surround myself with characters I want to be around. That is where I find my joy.

Don't get me started on the commercials. To be honest, I don't even think they are funny. I don't like to rewatch the commercials either. I usually won't laugh at them, even when my husband is cracking up right beside me. Oh, that's supposed to be funny? Oops. I am counting down the seconds in my head for it to be over. I will most likely play with our son while the game is going on. He loves to count and say his colors out loud while he spins round and round like crazy. Seeing him laugh and smile makes me do the same.

So, yeah, I refuse to watch the Super Bowl, and I am not afraid to say so. It is my birthday, and I will spend it the way I want to, not how the rest of the country wants to spend it. I find no joy in football, and I am not going to make myself unhappy by watching it. I will enjoy our company if we have any, and then I will just relax and do things I want to do. It is my birthday, not Super Bowl Sunday.

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.

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.
