Dear Boys That I've "Talked To" ...

Narrated by Taylor Swift

Dear Boys That I've "Talked To" ...

Similar to Taylor Swift, I am that girl who "goes on too many dates". So when I first heard Taylor's new song, "the 1", all about ex-flames who didn't work out, I STARTED BLASTING IT!!!

The lyrics got me thinking and some of them really resonated with me and my experiences. So here it goes, an open letter to all the boys I've talked to, as told by Taylor.

To start off, I know from the start that we were different. We never painted by the numbers baby, but we were making it count. We had our fun together, and it was worth it. But for some reason, it just didn't work.

If one thing had been different, would everything be different today? Maybe we could have worked together after all, but I guess you never know. I can't stay caught up on the what-ifs because after all, you know the greatest loves of all time are over now.

Though I say I can't get caught up on you, I think about you a lot. But in my defense, I have none because, at the end of the day, we were something, don't you think so? I really think that it would have been fun if you would've been the 1. We could be sitting around, rosé flowing with your chosen family. It would have been sweet.

But I guess that it's just another day of waking up alone. I keep telling myself that if you never bleed, you're never gonna grow. Maybe, all you are meant to be for me is a lesson.

Since we haven't been together, I have this dream you're doing cool shit. Or maybe last night you met some woman on the internet and took her home. It doesn't matter to me, I'm doing good, I'm on some new shit. You taught me how to move on with my life and enjoy the little things.

Even though things didn't work, and if my wishes came true, it would have been you, I'm doing fine without you. Thanks for our fling, it taught me a lot. I hope that this letter doesn't dig up the grave another time.


Your "Ex"

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
