40 Things To Thank Your Boyfriend For

Dear Boyfriend,

Looking back on our time together, the big things such as birthdays and holidays are the first things that come to mind. However, it's the day to day, little things that go unnoticed that really matter. It's the little things that make up a lifetime, it's the little things that make me fall in love with you more every day, it's the little things that I need to thank you for.

Thanks for keeping me sane but keeping me crazy in all the right ways.

Thank you for not getting (too) annoyed when I ask you take that 17th picture because I didn't like my hair, the lighting or the angle in the first 16 tries.

Thank you for not only dealing with my never ending sassiness but embracing it

Thank you for bringing a little bit of chaos into my life

Thank you for listening to my countless rants about politics, school and why I need that brand new naked palette.

Thank you for telling me I'm beautiful even when it's the middle of finals week, I haven't brushed my hair in two days and I have a coffee stain on my t-shirt (well, technically your t-shirt that I stole, sorry not sorry)

Thank you for TRYING to watch Orange Is The New Black with me even though you can't stick with it

Thank you for reading the countless posts I tag you in on social media

Thank you for not judging me when I'm emotional and i start crying over tiny things like the death of an animal in a movie or my drink spilling all over my shirt

Thank you for not getting annoyed when I ask you to check if my winged eyeliner is even every single time.

Thank you for using Snapchat solely for the enjoyment I get from sending you 1700 selfies a day with the dog filter.

Thank you for stopping me from making impulsive decisions like cutting all my hair off because you know I would instantly regret it.

Thank you for consoling me when I make an impulsive decision and my red to blonde transition ends up bright orange.

Thank you for being my number one supporter in everything from exam grades to perfecting my contour

Thank you for giving me tough love when I start to slack off while studying and end up on Pinterest.

But also thank you for helping me stand back up when I fall.

Thank you for getting a large fry instead of a medium when I say I'm not hungry because you know I'm going to end up taking some.

Thank you for not getting irritated when I answer with "I don't care" when you ask me where i want to eat and then proceed to deny all the suggestions you come up with

Thank you dealing with my never ending need for cuddles regardless of whether it's 85 or 10 degrees outside.

Thank you for not watching an episode of our tv show without me(sometimes)

Thank you for putting me in my place when I'm actually overreacting about whatever so and so did. At the time, iIll disagree but deep down i know you're right.

Thank you for not judging me when I eat my own weight in pizza.

Thank you for going on adventures with me even though I consider everything an adventure even going to McDonalds at 2 am.

Thank you for opening up and talking about your feelings with me.

Thank you for driving me around because even though several girls defeat the "women are bad drivers" stereotype, I definitely am not one of them.

Thank you for sharing your family with me.

Thank you for going to 3 different Tim Hortons at 2 am to get me coffee when I'm in the midst of studying for an exam.

Thank you for helping me get through the difficult spots in video games and not saying anything when I brag about how good I am at Fallout.

Thank you for earning my trust and never breaking it.

Thank you for getting up and getting me food because the walk from the couch to the kitchen is JUST TOO LONG (even though you make me do this, just as often).

Thank you for making me feel perfect even when I'm far from it

Thank you for fixing my car while I help and by help I mean supervise and update my Snapchat story.

Thank you for reminding me to slow down when we're drinking and to drink water and then not telling me "I told you so" when I completely disregard that and wake up hungover.

Thank you for not getting annoyed when I tell you to get off your phone when I want attention even though I just spent 6 hours on Instagram.

Thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for being the person I can always count on and go to. Thank you for brightening up my life because I was never a fan of mornings until I started waking up next to you. I was never a fan of studying until you started reviewing flashcards with me. I was never a fan of the cold until I had your arms to crawl into. Thank you for making even the bad things, great things.

Thank you for everything you do for me. Just know that even if I don't tell you every day, what you do doesn't go by unnoticed. I appreciate it all.

Most importantly, however,

Thank you for being you.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.
