To The Man I End Up With

To The Man I End Up With

I'll pray for you since you're stuck with me and my Cheetos obsession.

While it's "cuffing" season and everyone is quickly falling in love with one another almost as fast as the leaves are falling, I am not. I don't believe in love at first sight (as I would be in love with pizza and wing); however, I do believe in a happy ending. I believe that it takes time to find the right person and I have plenty of time to do so. While I often think that I'll end up as a cat woman for the rest of eternity, I can't help but picture the perfect ending. Most girls have thought about it since they were little, I may just now be getting to this stage.

For us girls, we all have hopes about who our mystery man will be. Here are some hopes and ideas I have for the future us.

1. I hope we have endless adventures.

If you're anything like me, you will enjoy traveling to old cities and trying new things. Promise that even when we're old and having new experiences that you'll still hold my hand and laugh with me when I pronounce a word wrong. I want a best friend to travel with and laugh until my stomach hurt.

2. Yes, I like my pizza cold.

I have weird food cravings. I don't like my pizza hot and I eat breakfast for dinner. I hope that you embrace these weird habits I have with food instead of bash me for it. When I choose to go vegan for a week, promise not to get angry but instead support me. You'll know that my stomach isn't a fan of many food items anymore.

3. I have a terrible attitude and a sarcastic sense of humor.

I can be as cold as ice sometimes. If I feel disrespected or hurt, I won't talk for days at a time. It's a work in progress. I will do my best to share everything there is to know about me just as I hope you do the same. I will always protect myself more than I should. When the time is right though, I will love with everything I have. I have a big heart, it just takes some time to show.

4. I don't take compliments well.

Heads up, I don't like flattery or attention. I will not accept it, and it's not for you to keep telling me these things, it's because I do not feel comfortable with them. I have struggled with my looks and weight for a long time and I do not like to discuss it. So when I shake off your compliment, understand that I'm sure you meant well.

5. Thank you and I'm sorry.

Lastly, I want to thank you. For the man that I end up with will be a believer and kind. I know that I will learn new things about me I hadn't known before. Thank you for taking me on those midnight food runs when I'm craving french fries and sprite. Not only do I want to thank you, but I want to apologize. I will be stubborn and loud. I will most likely blurt out ideas I should've kept in my head. For this, I am sorry.

To the future us, I know we're gonna kick it like it's 1980.

P.S. I give you endless kudos for putting up with me. You rock dude.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

A New Perspective For 2019

New year, new you... but for real this time.


As this year comes to a close, I have spent a lot of time reflecting on how it went. Like every year, there have been a few bumps in the road, but overall, 2018 was not terrible (unpopular opinion, I know). With that being said, I hope to make 2019 even better, and with that, comes a change in perspective.

I am done spending my time to worry about things that I can't control. This year, I am going to focus on being a better version of myself, and the time spent on worrying and complaining needs to be left in 2018. I want to get the most out of life and reach my full potential. I will start saying "yes" more and go with the flow instead of constantly trying to control everyone and everything in my life. I want to live in the moment and not worry about all the work I could be doing instead. You only live once (YOLO), so we might as well make the best of it.

It is time to start only surrounding myself with people who love me. I know the whole "cut toxic people out of your life" idea is overdone, but it really is true. We should all simply focus on those who make us feel loved and make us better people. There is no point in being fake to others or putting yourself in a bad mood because you have to be around someone who makes you feel bitter and upset. It is time to wake up people!!! Be a little selfish and only be with people that make you happy and help you grow.

It is important for me to stay positive. Sometimes I get so caught up in the drama in my life that I forget to sit back and put things into perspective. This year will be about staying positive, but also being realistic. I can't dwell in the negativity; I want to let myself be upset, but then accept it, move on, and learn from it. This year is going to be all about learning and finding lessons in the little things.

Basically, I want to be the best I can be at everything that I do. I will try to put 100% of my effort into everything, even the little things. You get what you put out in this world, so if I do the best I possibly can, I will get the best back in return: the law of attraction… look it up.

Another thing that I want to start focusing on is looking for the good in people. My grandma has always said that you should find at least one positive attribute about every single person you meet. I know this might be genuinely hard to do for some people, but think of all the good that can come from it. This simple change can really make you a better person internally, and even a better person to be around. I want to be someone that makes other people's days brighter. If I am constantly gossiping and focusing on the bad in people, I won't be fun to be around, I would just be an insanely draining person.

2019 is the perfect time for us to start focusing on what is really important in life. We should all focus on making deeper connections with our family and friends, and just being a better human being all around. I hope this year brings us all nothing but peace and happiness.
