you’re almost there!

To The Class Of 2019

Dear Class of 2019,

You're almost at the finish line! Seems like almost yesterday when you were all walking through the door as freshman lining up anxiously awaiting a new chapter.

When seniors say time really does fly,they aren't kidding! When they tell you to enjoy every minute of your last year, they mean it! Don't take any opportunity for granted, and act like it's your last. Unfortunately, you will be saying goodbye to some of your closest friends that you remember meeting during orientation. But that doesn't mean that you don't still stay in touch. Believe me when I say this, it won't be easy. I shouldn't sugarcoat this next part of what I'm about to say because you should know this in the best way possible. It's not going to be so simple where you graduate and things will come together, because they won't. There will be times when you're going to feel lost and confused. I sure as hell know I was.

For the High School seniors, I remember my first day of college thinking that it was going to be the best day ever. Turns out I was nervous as hell surrounded by people I'd never met before, I was almost late to my first class because I didn't know what to wear, and I thought my now ex was everything I wanted in a boy (and boy was I wrong). With college, I was looking through social media seeing everyone 'live their best lives' while I was trying to get a job to be able to do such. I felt like I was doing something wrong, and I didn't feel good enough. But that mindset came from what I wasn't familiar with. I thought that things after we're not going to be as bad as I expected they would be. There's always beauty within the struggle. Just because you're struggling right now doesn't mean you're meant to struggle forever.

You're not expected to have it all together after you graduate. Just remember to take your time. Also, just because you put your cap and gown on doesn't mean that you should change who you are. Your mindset may be the only thing, but it's the most important. Friends may come and go, but it doesn't mean the most important will. Your most important people after you graduate should always be the ones you stick by no matter what. Even when you feel that you're doing things on your own, it doesn't mean that they're not always there for you. Someone told me that some of the closet people in your life won't be there for your well being...they're wrong. The truest most realest people in your life will. In this big world that we live in, you're not going to be the only one that will be alone at it. There are plenty out there that will be going through the same thing.

So with this I say to you all, good luck! Sending nothing but beautiful, and positive vibes your way.

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.
