A poem about moving onto the next chapter

Tears fall from my eyes

as the raindrops pelt against the window,

feeling as though my body is buried under six feet of snow,

yet, I know that I am just curled up on the couch.

Little did I know

that right out my window the snow has begun to melt,

and as the flowers begin to bloom

a spark is beginning to ignite in my own soul.

I talk too much

but then again I don't talk enough,

there's nothing in this world that will ever make you happy

and I wished I knew that

before I ever followed you to the other side,

but now as the flowers bloom

I begin to take on a new form,

one which you will never notice

because I will become a spirit that haunts your memory.

There was once a time where I thought to myself,

"How will I ever find love again?"

But now I know that I am done crying over you,

done with how I used to feel about myself,

curled up with tightness in my chest,

listening to the only song pelting against my own window.

How do I love again?

How do I trust again?

I follow the flowers that are blooming from the snow,

become anew,

become a new version of what I used to be,

and let that spark ignite a fire inside of me,

so I can take on what lies ahead of me.

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.
