The Perks Of A Long-Distance Relationship

Yes, there ARE perks!

The Perks Of A Long-Distance Relationship

In contrast to popular belief, there are indeed benefits to having a long-distance relationship. I'm not saying long-distance relationships are always fine and dandy — I'm just here to unveil some of the wonderful things that can come out of being in a long-distance relationship!

1. You get to visit another place fairly frequently.

And when you visit your partner (or vice-versa) you're convinced you two are Aladdin and's "a whole new world!"

2. You appreciate your time together much more.

And when you finally get to see each other, you make every second count.

3. Your communicative skills improve A LOT.

And you don't let any phone call go to waste!

4. You have your own adventures.

Yet you also get to share your adventures with your partner, similar to Gandalf and Bilbo in "The Hobbit."

5. You learn to let go of the little things.

That's right, just like Elsa.

6. You support each other from miles away.

And you realize that's the strongest support system that exists, which is awesome.

7. Surprises are a lot easier to keep.

No more accidentally finding presents in not-so-secret places!

8. With less physical contact you discover how great your partner's personality is.


9. You feel like Sam and Frodo from "Lord of the Rings" when you're reunited.

Minus the burden of the ring, of course.

10. You realize the miles just don't matter.

And that your relationship is so much greater than the distance between you and your partner.

So next time someone goes off on a tangent about how long-distance relationships suck, whip out this list, and you'll quickly prove them wrong!

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
