2018, Goodbye And Good Riddance

This not the end of me, this is the beginning.

2018, Goodbye And Good Riddance

Dear 2018,

You really tested me.

You brought me up and down more than any roller-coaster ride could attest for.

You moved me around about six or seven times as I can somehow just thrive without stability. You played me your hand of cards, and they were the opposite of steady, happy, and hopeful. For that, you scared me more than anyone or anything ever possibly could have, and trust me, no one will replace you for that one.

You repeated my past then laughed at my face about it. My recurring nightmares became real once more, just for you to make sure I was ready to accept it and move on from my trauma. You mocked me in such a way, and I have no respect for you.

You took one of the most important people to my family and me, and I will never forgive you for that. Broken hope and broken promises seemed to be your motto. Let me know how far you get in life with that outlook.

You put a shiny, beautiful dream in my life, I got so close I can taste it, only for you to rip it away. I'm glad you thought that was funny because I was a little concerned for my future. No big.

You've tested my faith in my career and who I even am. No matter how many times I built myself up, you came knocking on my door just to tear me back down. Never in my life have I encountered something so merciless.

You have, however, blessed me with a beautiful gift, that I can't open until 2019, so guess who will get the credit for that one?

Mark my words.

I know for a fact...

I will not let you destroy me the way I did 2017. You will not get the best of me, and the worst of me has been permanently laid to rest. So guess what — you get none of me.

You tore me down more than any year I've known in my young life, but you will not get away with having the last laugh. You have been victorious over me more than enough, and because of this, you have no idea the warrior you've created, and the one yet to come.

I do not condone your behavior 2018, and I do not forgive you. I will never be able to forget you, but you did NOT WIN.

This not the end of me, this is the beginning.

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.

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.
