Love really does suck... and so does season 7.

An Open Letter To The Vampire Diaries

Dear Vampire Diaries,

This is hard for me to write because you have been so good and so faithful to me. I love you like I love my own children but there are a few things I need to get off my chest. When I first discovered you, I could not stop watching you. You were just a show I saw in my suggestions on Netflix but soon, you became so much more. I watched three seasons in three weeks. My life became absorbed with your storyline and your love triangle between two brothers, vampires, and a doppleganger. I found myself wishing that I too could be adored by the Salvatore brothers. At first, like any TVD virgin, I found myself a die hard team Stelena. But soon, I found myself a die hard Delena fan. I to this day will not talk to my roommate when she mentions how she is team Stelena. How could you love Stelena? Their love is based on fate and the love of the original dopplegangers, Amara and Silas. That is not real. Delena has beat the odds. They have survived heartbreak and death because their love is real and not based on some prophecy. That is where my issues begin with you, Vampire Diaries.

After six amazing seasons, Nina Dobrev decided to leave. Yet, you continued on with the show. I gave you the benefit of the doubt, I figured that Damon would spend his remaining seasons doing things to win her love for when she woke up. Come October, I would quickly realize I was very wrong. You introduced like eight new characters that no one cares about. What even are heretics, anyway? And can Valarie please stop lusting over Stephan? You guys hung out twice like 150 years ago. A few episodes in to the 7th season, I quickly realized that much like another beloved TV show, One Tree Hill, the final seasons would be nothing short of disappointing. My one question is, if Elena had to leave, why did you have to change the story line completely?

My heart breaks because my once favorite show has become a Friday morning chore of keeping up with it, hoping that soon it will get better. News broke a few weeks ago that Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham will also be leaving the show after season 8. Part of me was very excited. This meant that the show MUST be ending since 5 out 8 original cast members have left in the past few seasons. However, much to my disappointment, Julie Plec said that she will continue the show as long as either Ian or Paul are still a part of the show. Paul Wesley has not yet announced that season 8 will also be his final season. Now, I feel as though I speak for TVD fans around the world, please let season 8 be the last season. I want to get back to the purpose of the show. Let season 8 be the season of epic endings and finales of the complicated story lines the past eight years have brought us. Let Nina come back for the finale and lets end the show on the same note it started. That is what separates a show that goes down in history from a show that is an after thought to our generation.

I love The Vampire Diaries. In a sense, I've grown up with a sense of security from that show. I graduated high school watching that show, I got through the first couple years of college watching that show. TVD became a routine that kept me a little sane when times got a little tougher and my stress level began to rise. I hate to see a show that has been such a part of my life go down the drain. It is such a beautiful story line and a beautiful concept. Let season 8 finish up that story line and help make it a show I will make my children watch some day.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
