The minute you wake up, you text your honey "good morning." Sometimes a text as simple as "good morning" can mean the world to another because it reminds them that someone is willing to reach out to them in the morning; someone is willing to say I love you or I care. For myself, mornings are really tough. Especially the getting up part. Why get out of your nice, soft bed when yo would rather lay there all day. Productive plans for your day, right? But when someone willingly shows you that they care, to just send a "good morning" text, it whips away every thought in your head about laying in bed all day because, obviously, you have to go out and have a good morning, right? The following piece, emphasizes a few good reasons why good morning texts are so important.


Good morning texts don't have to go to someone you love.

Good morning texts are usually sent to someone really close to you; someone you have been thinking about and you want to start a conversation with. If you are sending a text, like all the millennials prefer, this conversation usually starts with the click of a few buttons on your mobile device. With the more traditional people, like myself, like to offer a few good morning "hellos" occasionally to the people I care about to start their day. While I am not one to get out of bed in the morning and make something of my morning, sometimes I know my friends and family can use a bit of encouragement.

But good morning texts mean the world to someone you love.

One thing that I absolutely admire is someone that reaches out to me in the morning to wish me a good-morning. This can mean the world especially if this is coming from your loved one, perhaps your boyfriend or girlfriend.

It reminds the person you love that you were thinking about them.

Yes, you! Your boyfriend was thinking about you so much he couldn't get you off of his mind all night.

It reminds them you care.

Receiving a friendly hello can make any day good.

By texting or calling someone you love in the morning, it shows that you can't wait to speak to them.

Yes, you! Your girlfriend couldn't wait to say hello to you.

It makes the person smile.

It doesn't have to be a person you are in a relationship with. A smile is bound to go on your face when someone wishes you a good morning.

For crying out loud, they aren't wishing you a bad morning, so smile.

It makes them feel wanted.

A text or a simple call can show a person how willing you are to reach out to them.

It is a nice way to start the day.


We all have those down days, where we feel like no one cares for us. We put into our heads that it is just us, we are on our own and no one is wants to talk to us. I get that. But a text in the morning can shift this bad day to a good day.


If you are the one receiving the messages, also make sure you wish them a good morning.

Because a morning is better if you are sharing it with someone.

If you haven't sent a good morning message in a while to someone you care about, now is your chance.

Send it right now. Go on! Don't be shy!

Say hello to people you care about. Say good morning to all your friends. It doesn't mean that you have to be in love with this person to send them a good morning text. Just remind the people you love that you care. Remind them that you are willing to go a little out of the way for them. To all the boyfriends, girlfriends, lovers, and beings out there, send a friendly "hello" or perhaps a "good morning" to the one you love. In fact, send it every day. Call them every morning if you can. If you can manage taking a few minutes out of your time, a friendly message can mean the world.

Why High School Musicals Should Be As Respected As Sports Programs Are

The arts are important, too.

When I was in middle school and high school, I felt like I lived for the musicals that my school orchestrated.

For those of you who don't know, a musical is an onstage performance wherein actors take on roles that involve singing, and often dancing, to progress the plot of the story. While it may sound a little bit nerdy to get up in front of an audience to perform in this manner, this is something you cannot knock until you try it.

For some reason, though, many public schools have de-funded arts programs that would allow these musicals to occur, while increasing the funding for sports teams. There are a few things that are being forgotten when sports are valued more than musical programs in high schools.

Much like athletic hobbies, an actor must try-out, or audition, to participate in a musical. Those best suited for each role will be cast, and those who would not fit well are not given a part. While this may sound similar to trying out for say, basketball, it is an apples to oranges comparison.

At a basketball try-out, those who have the most experience doing a lay-up or shooting a foul shot will be more likely to succeed, no questions asked. However, for an audition, it is common to have to learn a piece of choreography upon walking in, and a potential cast member will be required to sing a selected piece with only a few days of preparation.

There are many more variables involved with an audition that makes it that much more nerve-racking.

The cast of a school musical will often rehearse for several months to perfect their roles, with only several nights of performance at the end. Many sports practice for three or four days between each of their respective competitions. While this may seem to make sports more grueling, this is not always the case.

Musicals have very little pay-off for a large amount of effort, while athletic activities have more frequent displays of their efforts.

Athletes are not encouraged to but are allowed to make mistakes. This is simply not allowed for someone in a musical, because certain lines or entrances may be integral to the plot.

Sometimes, because of all the quick changes and the sweat from big dance numbers, the stage makeup just starts to smear. Despite this, an actor must smile through it all. This is the part of musicals that no sport has: introspection.

An actor must think about how he or she would respond in a given situation, be it saddening, maddening, frightening, or delightful. There is no sport that requires the knowledge of human emotion, and there is especially no sport that requires an athlete to mimic such emotion. This type of emotional exercise helps with communications and relationships.

Sports are great, don't get me wrong. I loved playing volleyball, basketball, track, and swimming, but there were no experiences quite like those from a musical. Sports challenge the body with slight amounts of tactic, while musicals require much physical and mental endurance.

The next time you hear someone say that it's “just a musical," just remember that musicals deserve as much respect as sports, since they are just as, if not more demanding.

10 Shows To Watch If You're Sick Of 'The Office'

You can only watch it so many times...

898

"The Office" is a great show, and is super easy to binge watch over and over again! But if you're like me and you're looking for something new to binge, why not give some of these a try? These comedies (or unintentional comedies) are a great way to branch out and watch something new.

1. "New Girl"

A show about a group of friends living in an apartment in a big city? Sound familiar? But seriously, this show is original and fresh, and Nick Miller is an icon.

2. "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Ya'll have been sleeping on this show. It's a musical comedy about a girl that follows her ex boyfriend across the country. I thought it sounded horrible so I put it off for WAY too long, but then I realized how incredible the cast, music, writing, and just EVERYTHING. It really brings important issues to light, and I can't say too much without spoiling it. Rachel Bloom (the creator of the show) is a woman ahead of her time.

3. "Jane the Virgin"

I know... another CW show. But both are so incredible! Jane The Virgin is a tongue-in-cheek comedy and parody of telenovelas. It has so many twists and turns, but somehow you find yourself laughing with the family.

4. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"

Giphy

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been in popular news lately since its cancellation by Fox and sequential pickup by NBC. It's an amazing show about cops in, you guessed it, Brooklyn. Created by the amazing Michael Schur, it's a safe bet that if you loved "The Office" you'll also love his series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".

5. "The Good Place"

Another series created by the talented Micael Schur, it's safe to say you've probably already heard about this fantasy-comedy series. With a wonderful cast and writing that will keep you on your toes, the show is another safe bet.

6. "Fresh Off The Boat"

Seriously, I don't know why more people don't watch this show. "Fresh Off The Boat" focuses on an Asian family living in Orlando in the mid 90s. Randall Parks plays a character who is the polar opposite of his character in "The Interview" (Yeah, remember that horrifying movie?) and Constance Wu is wonderful as always.

7. "Full House"

Why not go back to the basics? If you're looking for a nostalgic comedy, go back all the way to the early days of Full House. If you're a '98-'00 baby like me, you probably grew up watching the Tanner family on Nick at Night. The entire series is available on Hulu, so if all else fails just watch Uncle Jesse and Rebecca fall in love again or Michelle fall off a horse and somehow lose her memory.

8. "Secret Life of the American Teenager"

Okay, this show is not a comedy, but I have never laughed so hard in my life. It's off Netflix but it's still on Hulu, so you can watch this masterpiece there. Watch the terrible acting and nonsense plot twists drive this show into the ground. Somehow everyone in this school dates each other? And also has a baby? You just have to watch. It might be my favorite show of all time.

9. "Scrubs"

Another old show that is worth watching. If you ignore the last season, Scrubs is a worthwhile medical comedy about doctors in both their personal and medical life. JD and Turk's relationship is one to be jealous of, and one hilarious to watch. Emotional at times, this medical drama is superior to any medical drama that's out now.

10. "Superstore"

I was resistant to watch this one at first, because it looked cheesy. But once I started watching I loved it! The show is a workplace comedy, one you're sure to love if you can relate to working in retail. If you liked the Office, you'll like Superstore!
