Signs You Were Obsessed With The Jonas Brothers

Signs You Were Obsessed With The Jonas Brothers

And you probably still are.

During my "Tweens," the Jonas Brothers were the biggest thing. They were huge pop-stars back then and every girl had a major crush on at least one of the brothers. Even though they are broken up now, the brothers are still very much in the spotlight. When I look back on my childhood, the Jonas Brothers played a big role. People like me claimed they had "OJD" or "Obsessive Jonas Disorder" and these are a few of the symptoms.

1. You went to every single one of their tours.

Every tour they ever went on, you've been to. I remember waiting at the computer the day the tickets went on sale. We even made a point to see them when they were in town not on tour. We actually went and got to see them play baseball!

2. You still probably own every single album.

If you didn't have every album, you weren't a true fan. Over the years my sister and I collected all of them and still have them to this day. I remember making our mom take us to the stores the day they came out to buy them. We'd save all our birthday and Christmas money to pre-order the CD's or buy them once they were released.

3. All your school supplies were Jonas Brothers or "Camp Rock" themed.

In middle school I had so many of these. I never wanted to use them though because then I'd have to throw them out when they were used up.

4. You knew every single word to every single song.

(and still do)

That was one of your greatest accomplishments in life and you don't forget it that easily. Every time a JoBro song comes on, I still know all the lyrics, like I never stopped listening to them.

5. You had posters all over your room.

So this is pretty much how my room looked with all the posters - you could never have too much! Whenever my parents started telling me I had too many, I started hiding them by hanging them up on the inside of my closet instead. I was dedicated.

6. You own at least 3 Jonas Brothers t-shirt.

I had the shirt on the left and the shirt on the right. I actually still have them in my closet somewhere. I collected those 2 shirts and more from going to so many of their concerts. These shirts were my prized possessions and I made sure I wore at least one a week.

7. You've seen every single episode of "J.O.N.A.S."

If you don't know what "J.O.N.A.S." is you weren't ever a true fan. We recorded every episode and knew all the songs from the show. In addition to "J.O.N.A.S." you always were extremely enthusiastic about their 3D concert movie and "Camp Rock."

8. You were heartbroken when they broke up.

... And by “breakup” you mean Nick leaving them. But hey, they did good as a band and as they grew up, so did their fan base.

9. You still listen to Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas solo.

It's not the same, but it's sufficient. Since the Jonas Brothers' fan base grew with them, Nick Jonas's solo songs and Joe Jonas's band are more mature than the Jonas Brother were. Though the music is a bit different, you will always stay loyal to your first love.

10. You knew all there was to know about them.

Yes, I was an expert. I knew everything from their birthdays, birth places, to every single person they ever dated. The gossip magazines were our favorite "books" and we made sure to check fan websites religiously.

11. You know who each one dated.

It seems like the list goes on and on. The 3 of them together dated so many girls it's impossible to keep them all straight, but you made sure you knew at all times, just in case you had your turn.

12. You have no shame in admitting you love(d) them.

You know that through it all, they will always be a part of your past. Being a Jonas Brothers fan was something to be proud of.

Through it all the Jonas Brothers were a huge part of my childhood. I made so many memories I'll never forget. Their music made me who I am today and paved the way for my music tastes in the future. I'll always love the Jonas Brothers, though I may not be "obsessed" with them anymore, they will always have a place in my heart.

To The Girl Who Had A Plan

A letter to the girl whose life is not going according to her plan.
“I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” - William Ernest Henley

Since we were little girls we have been asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” We responded with astronauts, teachers, presidents, nurses, etc. Then we start growing up, and our plans change.

In middle school, our plans were molded based on our friends and whatever was cool at the time. Eventually, we went to high school and this question became serious, along with some others: “What are your plans for college?” “What are you going to major in?” “When do you think you’ll get married?” “Are you going to stay friends with your friends?” We are bombarded with these questions we are supposed to have answers to, so we start making plans.

Plans, like going to college with our best friends and getting a degree we’ve been dreaming about. Plans, to get married as soon as we can. We make plans for how to lose weight and get healthy. We make plans for our weddings and children.

We fill our Pinterest boards with these dreams and hopes that we have, which are really great things to do, but what happens when you don’t get into that college? What happens when your best friend chooses to go somewhere else? Or, what if you don’t get the scholarship you need or the awards you thought you deserved. Maybe, the guy you thought you would marry breaks your heart. You might gain a few pounds instead of losing them. Your parents get divorced. Someone you love gets cancer. You don’t get the grades you need. You don’t make that collegiate sports team. The sorority you’re a legacy to, drops you. You didn’t get the job or internship you applied for. What happens to you when this plan doesn’t go your way?

I’ve been there.

The answer for that is “I have this hope that is an anchor for my soul.” Soon we all realize we are not the captain of our fate. We don’t have everything under control nor will we ever have control of every situation in our lives. But, there is someone who is working all things together for the good of those who love him, who has a plan and a purpose for the lives of his children. His name is Jesus. When life takes a turn you aren’t expecting, those are the times you have to cling to Him the tightest, trusting that His plan is what is best. That is easier said than done, but keep pursuing Him. I have found in my life that His plans were always better than mine, and slowly He’s revealing that to me.

The end of your plan isn’t the end of your life. There is more out there. You may not be the captain of your fate, but you can be the master of your soul. You can choose to be happy despite your circumstances. You can change directions at any point and go a different way. You can take the bad and make something beautiful out of it, if you allow God to work in your heart.

So, make the best of that school you did get in to. Own it. Make new friends- you may find they are better than the old ones. Apply for more scholarships, or get a job. Move on from the guy that broke your heart; he does not deserve you. God has a guy lined up for you who will love you completely. Spend all the time you can with the loved one with cancer. Pray, pray hard for healing. Study more. Apply for more jobs, or try to spend your summer serving others instead. Join a different club or get involved in other organizations on campus. Find your delight first in God and then pursue other activities that make you happy; He will give you the desires of your heart.

My friend, it is going to be OK.

Homer Simpson's Guide To Having A Good Cry

A compilation of sad songs and sad movies for when us girls (or boys, no shame) need a good cry.


I hope I'm not the only girl, or even person, who has had times when a good, fat crying session was needed. Sometimes it's after a stressful day or work, sometimes it's when you're on your period, and sometimes it's just when you need to cry. It happens. Sometimes I'll sit there all fine one second and the next, I feel like bawling my eyes out. Okay, maybe not to that degree, but you all know what I mean.

More often than not, the emotions just build up and you need a trigger to cry and get it all off your chest. For me, sometimes I lay in bed and play some sad music or movies and let myself have a hearty cry, or other times, I'll run myself a nice bubble bath with some candles and I'll play sad music and let it all out. There's no right or wrong way to do it.

If you need help triggering a good cry, here's hoping these songs and movies will help!

Disclaimer: I think most of these will revolve around love and broken hearts. They're just easy to cry to.

1. Movie: Cyberbully with Emily Osment

If I had to be honest, I probably watch this movie every other month. The scene where she reaches her breaking point and almost swallows the pills gets me every time! This whole movie definitely tugs at my heart strings and the buildup to the big scene will leave you ready for nice cry.

2. Song: Be Alright x Dean Lewis

The slow, smooth beat of the music and his sad lyrics get me every time. I think my heart breaks every time I play this song.

3. Undone x Haley Reinhart

I scream these lyrics at the top of my longs and I'm not ashamed.

4. Song: Can't Help Falling In Love x Haley Reinhart

This song may seem overrated because at one point everyone was blasting this and singing to it, but I promise, it does the trick.

5. Song: When You Love Someone x James TW

His voice is beautiful, his lyrics are beautiful, and the instrumentals are beautiful. Enough said.

6. Movie: The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Absolutely do not watch this if you don't want your heart broken. Be prepared for your eyes to start flooding.

7. Song: The Fall x Bryce Vine

My heart has a soft spot for Bryce Vine. Nothing like a song about heartbreak and moving on to get the tears to start.

8. Song: Monsters x Timeflies (ft. Katie Sky)

Basically a song about suffering your monsters alone and needing someone to help you go through tough times.

9. Song: Catching On x Elephant (ft. Nevve)

Another song about losing yourself to love. Basically all about catching feelings despite being led on.

10. Song: Plans x Elephante (ft. Brandyn Burnette)

A beautiful, meaningful song about finding that one in a lifetime love. That sounds like such a happy song but the beats are a little sad so it tends to bring me down a little.

11. Song: Wounds x Quinn XCII

We all know how it feels to go back and fourth in a relationship and just wanting to move past it.

12. Song: Lights Down Low x MAX

Nothing like a soft song with some instrumentals to pull at your heart strings. The lyrics hit me hard.

So these happened to be all songs and barely any movies but I hope this does the trick for you!
