Thank You Longden Hall

Don't get me wrong I am not sorry that I won't have to wear shoes in the shower (not that I did anyway).

Thank You Longden Hall

Dear Longden Hall,

Thank you for an unforgettable first year of college. You have been the place where I have made most of my favorite memories but you've also been the place where I have some of my least favorite memories. There have been many countless nights spent in the study room at 2 am and there have been just as many nights where I'm under the covers at 11.

You have become my home away from home and while you are the size of a shoe box, you've become my home. 336 has become the place that people hang out for movies on Tuesday nights and it's also become home to the hangout room before going out on a Friday night. Countless hours have been spent in perfecting what you look like to make it the perfect place to study and watch Netflix.

My favorite days are the ones I can come back and just relax. You have become my refuge from the hard Spanish classes and the place that I can nap through lunch. I've done that more times than I can count.

You have also given me some of the greatest friends I could have asked for. A year ago I didn't know my roommate aside from the information we had told each other on Facebook but now we're one of each other's best friends. I'm so glad that you have given me her. You have also given me other friends that I cannot imagine my life without.

Now I am sadly packing up my room and the emptier it gets the sadder I feel. Don't get me wrong I am not sorry that I won't have to wear shoes in the shower (not that I did anyway) and I am definitely not going to miss the small bed I slept on every night. I will miss the late nights talking about life with my roommate and the constant flow of people in and out. I will miss having basically no responsibilities other than getting myself to class but I know it's time to let it all go and move into the next room.

So as much as I hated and loved living in you, I cannot say that I will be super upset to not share a floor with 40 people next semester.

So thank you Longden for what I can say has been an amazing year.

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.
