There’s More To Life Than Being In A Relationship

This one is for the girls whose long-term plans are bigger than having a boyfriend.

There’s More To Life Than Being In A Relationship

A lot of people in this generation are more concerned with having a significant other and being “goals” with him or her. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, and I’m not judging, but to me right now in this moment, there are better and more important things than being in a relationship.

My short-term goal is to graduate from college. This fall I’ll be starting my final year of undergrad and I am more than determined to finish off my last two semesters of college strong. There will be nothing and I mean nothing standing in my way of getting my diploma.

After I graduate college is when I begin to work on my long-term goals. There is nothing more I want than to live in work in New York City. Obviously, New York is an extremely expensive place to work so I plan on applying to jobs early and working full-time in my home state for at least a year saving up money so that I can move to an extremely small studio apartment in NYC and hopefully starting a job as a social media strategist.

While all of this is going on, I personally don’t see the time where I am able to meet someone new, get to know him, and do all that extra stuff that comes with being in a relationship. Call me selfish, but right now I am just trying to focus on me. And it’s not that I’m against the idea of being in a relationship, because I’m not, but I’m just not about forcing one to happen. And that’s how I feel a lot of women in this generation are. I personally do not believe in going out and searching for someone, if it’s meant to be then it’s meant to be. Others may feel differently and that’s ok, but this is how I feel. I feel like as a women I am expected to be married by a certain age and then have kids soon after, but I have other plans for my life. Big plans for my life.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

Photo Credit: Sony Pictures Entertainment – YouTube

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
