9 Reasons I Will No Longer Be The Boy-Crazy Girl

9 Reasons I Will No Longer Be The Boy-Crazy Girl

It's high-time I kiss and tell.


Yep. You know the one. That one friend who has a new boyfriend every week? The girl who's so smart and funny and cool, but, for some reason, can only ever talk about boys nowadays? Welp, that's been me lately. Yessiree. To the point of making my friends and family (and probably God for all I know) go crazy. So, here we go. 9 reasons I will no longer be the boy-crazy girl, written in cold, hard ink.

1. It's exhausting.

OK, so maybe some kind of reverse-satire going on with that gif, but you get the idea. The only thing more exhausting than listening to the boy-crazy girl is being the boy-crazy girl. Being a full-time college student is hard enough without having to remember who's who and who did who-knows-what what week.

2. It's not worth the drama.

As anyone who has ever alienated anyone with their drama can tell you, it's so not worth it. Neither is having to freak out about all of the things that promiscuity brings with it.

3. It's not worth the heartache and heartbreak.

It hurts.

4. Your list will grow.

You know that number of boys you kissed behind the jungle gym? Yep, that will grow.

5. Your list of neglected responsibilities will grow.

Kind of hard to keep up your got-it-all-together-girl appearance when you're doing everything but... nothing.

6. Your definition of love will be crap.

I mean, how will love mean anything if you're just telling every single person who catches your eye that you love them?

7. It will ruin your reputation.

Just take it from the girl whose family told her they didn't know her anymore--it can and will ruin the person you've worked so hard to become. And in the end, no good boy wants to be with a bad girl.

8. You'll find it harder to look in the mirror.

Your conscience will drift farther and farther away.

9. Redemption is hard, but it's worth it.

This "Frozen" scene kind of echoes the ambivalence I feel about stuffing my boy-crazy, but you get the picture. Although I felt like Elsa dancing on the mountaintop in the heyday of my boy-cray-cray phase, my kingdom of ice-o-lation was so not worth the ruin of my real kingdom.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
