An Open Letter to My Dad

I could never explain how thankful I am for you.

An Open Letter to My Dad
Warner Bros. Television

To the man who brushed my hair, coached the softball and basketball teams, drove me everywhere, attended every sports, musical, and theater event, hosted sleep overs, encouraged me to pursue my dreams, bought me make up, made it possible for me to go to college, put a roof over my head and food on the table, and loved me unconditionally. This one’s for you daddio.

I don’t tell you enough, but I love you. I may not always seem like I appreciate you, but I really do so much. You’re my best friend, dad. I tell you everything. You’re the best man i’ve ever known and I know so many others who could say the same thing.

Thank you for sacrificing your time to raise me & my sisters on your own. You had to be both a mom and a dad. To be honest, you make a mean spaghetti & crock pot chicken!! Thank you for all of the opportunities you’ve given us. I would not be who I am if it wasn’t for you. You truly are the best dad in the world.

You’re the most hardworking man this world has ever known and you’re so selfless. I can’t even begin to explain the amount of time and effort you have put into me & my sisters lives. You sacrificed so much for us. For that, i am forever grateful.

Thank you for being your goofy self and always singing along to any John Melloncamp, Johnny Cash, Ole Crow Medicine Show, & Willie Nelson song that comes on. Thank you for watching Star Wars with me on repeat, being a Harry Potter geek, letting us have 2 puppies, and just spending time with me when you can. There’s no better dad, than you.

I love you so much, daddio.

Thank you for being you.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

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.
