11 Things That Happen When You've Loved The Same Boy For... A Long Time
Emma Jones

I'm not gonna lie to you, I lucked out in this department. What can I say? Honestly, I don't advocate dating someone before you're in your last year of high school or beginning college because who needs that kind of heartbreak that early, but I'm a strong nonconformist and I broke my own rule. Here to tell the tale.

Here are a few of the entertaining things that happen when you've loved the same person for the better part of your teenage life.

1. You don't know who is cute and who isn't anymore.

People I hang out with always talk about people they think are cute and if we're being honest, I'm not really sure who's cute and who isn't anymore.

2. People ask you how long you've been together and the details are a little foggy.

How long have we been together? Um... some years/months/days I don't know I stopped counting. I can tell you how long our Snapchat streak is if that helps.

3. One of you glows up and the other... stays the same.

I didn't win on this end. He did though so...I guess I'm happy for him.

Pictures for reference. 2013 vs. 2017. My hair changed. You have to give me that.

4. When you see pictures from the beginning of your relationship you're a little repulsed

5. People ask who you're dating, you tell them, and they say "OMG that's still going on???"

Yeah, girl. I'm here for a good time AND a long time.

6. "Don't you get bored of each other??"

One time we talked for 7 hours in a row. I'll let you figure the rest out.

7. Friends ask you for boy advice but you don't know anything about boys

How do you know if a boy likes you? First dates? Meeting the parents? I got nothing I barely even remember what I ate for breakfast.

8. "How do you know they aren't talking to someone else behind your back?"

Okay, this one used to bother me, but why would someone stay with me this long if they didn't have to. I'm a handful.

9. It gets more fun each year.

Adventure is out there. I wouldn't enjoy it half as much without my adventure buddy.

10. You have endless amounts of blackmail-worthy embarrassing stories.

Every once and a while you're like "hey, remember when..." and he's like ^.

11. Most of the nervousness goes away

I used to be nervous to eat/sleep/exist in front of my boyfriend. Now, working on six years later, I have no cares.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
