Ten Reasons Why Technology Is Beneficial To our Success

Today’s generation has a bad rap for constantly being in touch with our technology; however, what many do not realize is how truly beneficial our technology is. From scheduling the due dates for assignments and meetings to finding a job, technology has improved our daily lives for the better. Below are the top ten ways technology has improved our lives.

1. Google Maps

Before GPS systems, we had to ask for directions before we went somewhere or we had to bring a map. If you were lost, you often had to find someone who could offer directions, and it was not likely that everyone knew where every popular destination was located. Now, with the tap of a screen, one can find their way almost anywhere, and know exactly how long it will take to get their.

2. Uber and Lyft

Sometimes one needs a ride to a popular destination. Calling a taxi can take time, and it is also expensive. Uber and Lyft offer rides in less than ten minutes, and they are usually less expensive than a traditional taxi.

3. Group Messages

While annoying, group messages allow people to always be in touch and stay informed of upcoming events and outings with their groups.

4. Calendars

With calendar applications, one can be notified when they have a meeting scheduled without having to rely on a paper planner.

5. Social Media

Because of social media, the world is smaller than ever. With the tap of a button, one can communicate with family or friends next door or around the world.

6. Ebooks

Ebooks make it easier for many readers to access the books they love. Audio books allow anyone to enjoy their favorite novel or class textbook, even on long road trips.

7. Smart Watches

Smart watches, such as the Apple Watch, allow the user to see their phone notifications without having to look at their phone. These also allow people to track their daily exercise, which is a popular activity among many.

8. Smart TVs

Watching TV has gotten even easier. Instead of searching for your favorite TV show, one can watch it on demand.

9. Emergency Notification

If their is bad weather in the area or or another emergency, more people are informed than ever before.

10. There’s An App for That

Today, their is an app for almost everything—news, weather, games, and email.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

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.

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.
