10 Things You Can Relate To If You're Living A 10/10 Single Girl Life

Have you reached peak yet? Or should we pop some more bubbly and turn on Pretty Woman?

10 Things You Can Relate To If You're Living A 10/10 Single Girl Life

Your favorite Ellement here!

Let's just talk a minute about the dreaded single girl life. Because if you're single, chances are you can definitely relate to these things 10 things about living your life solo. So pull on your leggings, ladies* and let's conquer this together! Or, at the very least, let's empower each other so it doesn't feel so bad.

You talk to your pets more than people

Let's be real. Your cat/dog/hamster/fish or WHATEVER pet you love and hold dear, has listened to your sob story on more than one occasion (and we both know that you probably are talking to them about this very post... I won't tell).

You have take-out on standby daily

You know those menus those Chinese food places give you when you get carry out? Yeaaahhhh... how many do you have lying around or accessible to you via SS?

You ALWAYS sleep in the dead center of the bed

You don't have to share your space, so why in the hell would you do anything other than sleeping in the middle of your cozy bed. HELLO, more room for activities and comfort.

Dating bores you — or pretend dating

You've got the tinder, the coffee meets bagel, the bumble and meetme... but let's be real af right meow - you are so bored of dudes trying to get in your pants that it's LITERALLY becoming a game.

Your binge-watch everything on Netflix with your pet

You're sitting there watching the new "To All The Boys I Loved Before" for the 10th time in a row - because you can't help yourself.

You've DEFINITELY eaten an entire box of Mac and Cheese with no shame

We don't need to tell anyone they were dino-shaped... unless you want to share with me because I would love you forever.

You watch cry movies & shows because you hate yourself (but also love the pain)

The notebook, party of your feels being sucker-punched in the face.

You've resigned your wardrobe to black leggings and whatever shirt is clean

On the plus side - you don't have to think about your outfits too much. Grab and go baby, you deserve the good life!

Date night for you consists of an entire bottle of vino and a nap

You know what I'm talking about - bubble bath, netflix, an entire bottle of bubbly and the inevitable nap until your water is cold (does life get any better honestly?)

You've forgotten what it was like to share with people

Your food, the blankets when you're cozy and it's cold - the hot water when you shower, and the list goes on and on. Why share when you can have it all? (totes sobbing rn... NBD)

*Note: The term "ladies" is referring to all individuals who identify as females/femmes regardless of their genitalia (FUCK your gender normalities)!

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

I've been in a media job for the entirety of my professional career. From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
