Dear Boyfriend

An open letter to my boyfriend thanking him for all he has done for me

Dear Boyfriend

The first thing I need to say is thank you. Thank you for opening my eyes, we don’t always see things through the same light, (such as the recent election, but you kept me from being totally and utterly judgemental of the republican party.) Thank you for reminding me that I am beautiful, and for not letting me shut you out when I get down. You're a stubborn son of a bitch but that's one of the many things I like about you, you don't always let me get my way. Which keeps me from becoming a big headed, egotistical, spoiled brat. You hold me back sometimes but not always in a bad way, my sense of adventure can be overwhelming I know that, so as much as I tell you I hate how homebodied you are it's not always a horrible thing, I wish I could get you to go out and explore with me more. Although, if you didn't keep me home sometimes I would wear myself, and you, out. Thank you for helping me overcome my fears, as the holidays approach and there is shopping to be done you really have helped me come out of my shell and be more confident talking to strangers and asking for help. I hope i have been able to restore some of your confidence as well. You really are a handsome man, you will always deny it, doesn’t stop the fact that it is wholefully true. Thank you for the little things, like flowers and forehead kisses. Thank you for the big things like driving me to the airport at 5am and your amazing promposal. But most of all thank you for believing in me and being by my side the whole time. I believe that we will be together forever, with my whole heart. But even if we aren’t, if something goes wrong and we end up apart. I know that I am a better person for having you in my life, the world is a more beautiful place when I’m with you and I can’t thank you enough.

I love you,awhhh

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
