Love Letters To The Unknown

Dear Dad,

To the father I don't talk to. I've thought about a million things to tell you. Each time I end up not sure of what to say or if it's even right. I have so much frustration towards you but somehow the love I have for you overpowers it all. I wonder why you haven't spoken to me or even tried to reach out. Is there something wrong with me? Or do you just not love me like I love you. I always question why you left us without a fight. Why was it so easy for you to leave and not look back. You're supposed to love me unconditionally but yet your love for me stopped. I sent you a letter a few years back. I know you got it. Was that not enough for you to call me or send me a letter back? Every time I do something life changing I've wanted you to be there. I wondered if you'd be proud like I felt at that moment and if you wouldn't be ashamed to be my father. In the end, I hope you're safe and well. I wish the best for you because through it all my love for you will never die.

Dear No one,

You have become a faint thought in my mind. You meant so much at the time but now it seems like you're off in a different planet and our lives will never coexist again. I am actually fine with the idea of not having to see you. The very thought used to make my stomach churn and my mind rocket. It was like I wasn't going to survive because you weren't going to be here anymore. I've learned that I'm stronger without you and that I had to go through this heartache to reach the point where I am at now. I'm going through life not afraid of the beginnings and the endings.

Dear My future someone,

I'm sorry if it's hard for me to trust right away. I don't want to get attached to you from the start and yet I know I will. I won't show it and I'll always try my best to hide it but believe me I care for you. I get excited over the smallest things. I could see a picture of a giraffe and it'll make my day. I try my best not to overwhelm people with the way I am. I hope you don't get tired of my over exciting personality. I also have days where I feel down or agitated with no explanation whatsoever. Just bear with me. I'll always be there for you when you go through rough times and the good times. You won't have to question if you have any support in your life because you'll have me. I love just being able to enjoy little things in life with someone else and I hope you do too. I plan to enjoy life to the fullest, care for people immensely, and help the world as much as I can. If you can accept me for all my flaws and heart, I'll accept you completely.

P.s. : I love pets so I hope you're ready.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
