Just Say Yes

It's time to throw "no" away.

Just Say Yes
Sparkle Quotes

No. One of the easiest words in the human vocabulary.

People told you 'no' when you were in trouble, when you couldn't have something, and when you were wrong. So you learned it and you say "no" a lot. We live in a world of no.


When you say "no" you're missing out on a chance. What chance is that? Who knows. Maybe it was life changing but you'll never know because you decided that it wasn't for you. I get it, it's hard to step outside your comfort zone but you know... it might be worth it. Don't stall your life with "no."

I personally am the worst at saying "no" when it comes to relationships. I don't know why, I'm not shallow... I just hate opening up and making myself vulnerable because I've been hurt so many times before. I know what you're thinking, "it's just the beginning, you're young... you don't know what hurt is." But boy, do I. I've been hurt by the cute guy, the athletic guy, the frat star, the druggie, and the "nice" guy. Some of those were the same person, so don't think that I'm THAT popular with the guys... which I'm not, so that should be a reason to not be so darn picky.


You know that guy you wouldn't go see a movie with or that trip you canceled because no one would go with you? Yeah, forget about that... Text him, NOW, and tell him you want to take your raincheck on that movie. Go down to the river and read in the sun, enjoy a day to yourself. Say "yes" and wait for everything to fall in place.

Make this summer the summer for "yes". Take a spontaneous trip with your friends, go see a movie by yourself, date, and have fun. Just keep saying "yes." The world opens up when you do. Don't stay at home wishing your ex will text you, making plans, or watching tv. Get up and do something, no matter what it is.

Now, I'm not saying that you should say "yes" to everything. Like if someone offers you drugs... that's a good time to say "no," but I'm sure you already knew that. I'm asking you to say "yes" to the little things that could change your mood, life, and friendships. Just remember what John Lennon said, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." So go out and just live your life.

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.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

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.
