If Sleep Deprivation Was Like A Break Up

It's not you, it's me.

As finals week approaches, I think this is something we can all relate to.

My dearest sleep, how I miss your embrace. I miss the darkness and the warmth, I miss the pleasant dreams, and I’m even starting to miss the less pleasant ones. Forgive me for abandoning you. I know I didn’t give you as much time as I should. I know I neglected you, and I shouldn’t have. I know I used various substances in order to distance myself from you. But you have to understand, I have so much work to do. And I know it looks like my priorities are anything but you, but you mean so much to me. You’re my absolute favorite. It’s true, I miss you dearly but there’s nothing I can do. This is the way it has to be but I promise: it isn’t you; it’s me. You’ve always been there for me. You’re more comforting than most. Maybe we can still be friends? Distant acquaintances at least? We’ll see each other occasionally, briefly, in passing, and maybe it won’t be awkward.

And maybe someday we can try again, go back to the way it used to be. I dream of that day. Maybe someday it’ll get here, the day when I won’t be drowning in schoolwork with so much to do it doesn’t seem possible. Maybe one day I’ll have some free time, some time to myself. An extra hour or a spare twenty minutes. If I’m lucky maybe a whole morning. I can’t wait for that day to arrive, because it will be a glorious day, a day to be celebrated, a day to rejoice and be thankful. A day when we will be reunited. And on that day, I will do one thing. Only one, something I have waited so long for. A day when our time together won't be cut short. A day when I can finally, after all this time....

sleep in.

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.
