To The Person Who Doesn’t Realize How Much I Appreciate Them

You have to be pretty cool if I compare you to the best literary heroine of all time.

To The Person Who Doesn’t Realize How Much I Appreciate Them

Hey, you. Yes, you!

So, I recently wrote you a little note on the way back from a conference trip that we went to together. I kept it short with the amount of paper I had, but I told you that I had so much I could say about you. This is what this lovely piece of writing is for; I have approximately 450 more words to go at the minimum, and that’s going to be a pretty easy word count to reach.

I guess what I first want to say is thank you for just being you. Thank you for being a person who makes the world around them a little brighter. You never fail to make my day happier whenever I run into you. You always have something interesting to say, something that always gives me new perspectives on life and all its weird tosses and turns. I truly love conversing with you, and I always look forward to the talks we have.

I think I have told you this before, but also thank you for always making me feel comfortable in my own skin. Sometimes I struggle with self-confidence and self-love, but your reassurance and your positive energy always make me happy with who I am. You always comment on how I am a kind soul, but you are the true kind soul. You always show that you care about me and my feelings, and this is something that I truly value.

Also, just thank you for always motivating me to be a better person. I always see how well you conquer life and all of its stresses, craziness, and zaniness. You are student-teaching, being a pretty bomb CF, and just conquering everything in your life with every ounce of effort you have and that is amazing. Sometimes, when I am feeling stressed and overwhelmed with all of my responsibilities, I’ll see you handling your stresses extremely well, and realize that I can do the same.

I think you know very well that I am a huge literary nerd, and I love typing the people in my life as some of the greatest literary characters. If I could compare you to any of them, I would say you are very much like Scout Finch from “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Scout is never afraid to fight for what’s right, often putting others ahead of herself in the scariest of situations. She is confident, wise, and just someone anyone would love to be friends with. I think it says a lot about your character if I am comparing you to one of my favorite characters of all time, just saying.

I wish I could tell you how much I appreciate you more. You have been such a positive influence in my life this school year, and I am so happy that we were given the chance to get to know each other. You are creative, strong, wise, and overall just a wonderful person. Please never change who you are. Thanks for always motivating me to be a better person and being a great role model in my life.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

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.
