TikTok, why are you leaving me?

9 Things TikTok Did For My Life, In Response To It Potentially Getting Banned From The United States

Dear TikTok,

We've had some good times together.

Although you sometimes creep me out with your crazily accurate algorithm when suggesting new videos on my 'For Your Page' and have sucked out hours of my days while mindlessly scrolling through your interface, I really hope this isn't the end to our short-lived two years with one another.


But with the looming possibility that you may be gone from devices across the United States for a while, here's a reflection of all the times you've influenced everyday life and conversations.

We've hit many woahs, mastered the Renegade, and got to throw it back together over the years.


You've reminded me on my worst days that I am still truly a "Savage" and helped me to manifest my goals with the audio, "Get the bread, get that head, then leave."

Best TikTok Compilations

You've introduced me to many delicious, yet simple recipes, from whipped coffee to pancake cereal.


You took my boredom in quarantine this year and spun out a bunch of different challenges to keep me entertained, from the plank challenge to making me learn the moves to "Blueberry Faygo."


You've given some of my favorite influencers the platform to share career, fashion, and beauty tips and advice with their audiences.


Lastly, ("I've been waiting for this one, turn it up!") thanks to you, I can no longer have a normal conversation without dropping one TikTok reference.


At the end of the day, however, I may just be another "Ordinary Girl" with a burning TikTok obsession, but I speak for everyone when I say that we will miss you.


TikTok, I hope this isn't a goodbye, but if it is, you've truly earned a place in my heart forever (and that's on periodt).

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

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.
