A Message To My Internet Friends

When we were at the age of signing up for all the social media: Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, we all had the same talk with our parents.

The talk that was always don't talk to strangers because they could be an 80-year-old man or some sort of stalker.

I do have to say that the first time I used social media it was hard to not talk to strangers because you had the whole world right in front of you.

I remember the first person I DMed on Instagram went to a Panic! At The Disco concert and I talked to her about how the concert was because I was seeing them a couple of weeks before then. I then DMed somebody who went to a Twenty One Pilots concert.

It then turned in to replying to be in group chats and meeting some great people (Which was during my Twenty One Pilots phase)

Now fast forward to the present I have been obsessed with a band called Why Don't We. I was scrolling through my twitter feed when I keep seeing pictures with a meet and greet phots with five dudes.

I started DMing a couple of them asking questions about the concert (again). And through some process I have met some of the most important people in my whole entire life, they mean the world to them, and I can't imagine my life without them.

KENNA: By the time I post this we would have already tackled each other to the floor and watched our favorite 5 favorite men on the stage for the best night of our lives. The first time we talked it was replying to a tweet asking what WDW concert date we were going to, and we found out we were going to the same show and ever since then we talked and just since then we clicked

JAY: I met you because I congratulated you on getting Jonah's follow. And we started talking about how I was never going to meet him or get his follow and you comforted me saying it was going to happen one day and I just need to stay positive. From there I was always there for you when you asked us to mention one of the boys on your drawings. And I am thankful that I congratulated you on Jonahs follow because I would not have you in my life and I don't know what I do without you in my life, you make me so happy

SOPHIA: I remember asking about the Vegas concert ( I know what a shocker). From there we talked about the possibility of my new tattoo, and how I was never going to meet them (again you should be shocked). Then we talked about the chance of me vlogging the concert. I then helped you picked out your outfit. I love you with all my heart.

Sometimes when it comes to talking to people on the internet you should be careful, but you also meet some of the best people. People aren't wrong when they say that internet friends are better than in real life friends and they are right. But talking to these three girls was the best decision of my life and I can't thank them enough for being them and being in my life and making me the happiest person on this earth. And I can't wait to hopefully meet you guys one day.

And I can't thank Why Don't We enough for giving me my best friends.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
