What is love?

Love Lost-One Left Standing
By DJ Cooper
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away." 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8, NIV

Unfortunately, this is not always how it goes...

A question posed by one so sad that it prompted this poem for the heartbroken.

How it feels… to the one left standing with the question.

What happened?

I think about you every day
Wonder if you think of me.
Even though you're so far away
gives me joy for all to see.

I know our lives they differ much,
yet they feel indeed the same.
In every day I crave your touch,
Still, I fear it's just a game.

The players in this wheel roulette
cannot see the frail in me.
all the cards on the table bet
Heartache stands, my fate shall be.

so when you deal with a heart's song
remember how it can ache.
a game will soon make that love gone,
in real life, it's what's at stake.

Our paths are cast in times of love,
to walk through fire, pain, and fear.
To find the one who'll rise above
brings our hearts a joyful tear.

Remember this my soul's good friend,
don't play games, there's too much cost
a heart in pain soon will mend,
but by then it's you who's lost.

for many see what you have done,
a heart's broken in the end.
So you say it was all in fun,
then don't fret what karma sends.

so in these words, a lesson looms,
remember when you break trust.
A love that may have let you bloom,
will now be made of only rust.

Do not be sad for I will heal,
it is you who is so cold.
And while today you cannot feel,
What you lost? Worth more than gold.

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.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
