Open Letter to the Graduating Senior

Elementary, middle, high school or college if you are graduating this may help.

Open Letter to the Graduating Senior

Whether you are graduating elementary school, middle, high school, or college, this is for you! This is from your friend that is staying behind after you leave whatever you are graduating from. I will be honest I am a junior in college and so this is a little more directed to those graduating college but definitely fits high schoolers as well. Though this is an open letter it is also more of a list of things you should do before you say goodbye to those friends that you have made through your years at school. There is a good chance that you will not be seeing many of these people again, as hard as that is to believe and hear you really won't. I struggled with that thought when I graduated high school but I realized that not everyone is meant to stay in your life for forever. You move to different schools and even though summer and winter breaks seem like a great time to hang out there really isn't as much time as you think!

Graduating is really something to celebrate so I hope this doesn't bring you down. The last semester of your senior year should be about fun! Yes you still need to make sure your grades don't drop to the bottom of the barrel but it really is about hanging out with your friends because as much as you hope you will not be able to visit as much as you'd like. I am not saying you will lose all your friends because that is 100% not true. But there is no way you will be able to keep in touch with the kid you talked to only in your English class. A big reason things don't work out as planned is because you are moving away and it will literally be difficult for you to be able to talk to the kid in your English class from across the country.

Your friends that you keep are the ones you need. It will always be trying to keep them and make sure you share all of the important things with them even from far away but luckily social media and cell phones are extremely helpful for that! And of course you can at least somewhat keep in contact with everyone with social media. So please do not fret although this is a huge change in your life and goodbyes are hard but goodbyes just lead to a hello.

So college and high school graduating seniors please remember to take these moments, sign everyone's year book, and friend everyone on Facebook because a lot of these people will become a memory, so make them a good one!

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.
