Who Is Ready For The 'New Year, New Me' Posts? Not Me.

If you really need to use the new year, every year, to be a new version of yourself, you need to reevaluate your life.

Who Is Ready For The 'New Year, New Me' Posts? Not Me.

Everyone is familiar with those posts, and we have all seen the same people post the same thing.




This is for those people. Please reevaluate your life. If you want to become a better version of yourself, by all means, do it.

But please don't post 'New Year, New Me' every year, and only stick to it for the first week of the new year. It's not only irritating but pretty embarrassing when people see you doing the exact same thing. Ask yourself why you feel the need to post this when in reality nothing actually changes.

Is it because you want to change, but don't know how? Is it because you want people to think you're actually going to do it this year? Or do you just simply know you need to change, but never take the steps to do it? Ask yourself, if you truly want to better yourself why do you wait for the new year? Why not start right away?

It's never too early or too late to better yourself. Write down your goals and then brainstorm the steps you need to take in order to achieve these goals. Your changes don't need to be publicly posted in order for people to know you're changing.

What's that old saying? ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.

Keep your goals private, reach them in private, and they will show themselves in public. Trust that. You don't need to announce it in order to get credit for it. Sometimes it's better to do it privately, even if it takes a few times, then to fail publicly every time.

Not everyone on your friends list needs to know you're goals and/or business.

So please for the love of God, please don't post the overused 'New Year, New Me' post.

Trust me, just make the changes you want to, and the actions will speak for themselves.


Every friend on your social media who is sick and tired of it.

PS- Good luck to everyone actually putting their plans and changes into action, and maybe the New Year bring you nothing but happiness, success, and hustle.

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.
