Finals are over and it's time to just relax and enjoy.

1. Go on a shopping spree

You have to do all that Christmas shopping sooner or later. It's always fun to find the perfect present for your friends and family and while you're at it get yourself something cute too for all those holiday parties coming up.

2. Buy Yourself Some Ice Cream

Ummmm... yes, please! If you're like me and just had the most stressful time of your life during this finals week then ice cream can make it all better. You can even go with your friends and it can be a little celebration for being done with this school for this year.

3. Give yourself a day to just lounge around

Chances are you've been busy all quarter/semester and the days of sleeping in have become rarer and rarer so give yourself a day where you can wake up as late as you want. Maybe watch Netflix movies and have a cozy day.

4. Have a movie night

Imagine this; your cuddled up in blankets and watching movies all night with some hot chocolate on your night stand. I mean come on, can it get any better?

5. Go on a weekend-trip

It's time to spend some time with people and explore new places. So, plan a trip with your family or friends to somewhere new and exciting. Make new memories and unwind from all the stress of the school year.

Have a self-care day

Bubble baths, face masks, and candles. Yes, yes, and yes. It's relaxing and is the perfect #treatyoself moment.

Go to a coffee shop and read a book

I feel like winter just calls for those cozy vibes. So order your favorite drink, go to a cute cafe, and enjoy the quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
