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)!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
