To The Single Girls, I Can Only Hope

Don't spend it being miserable because guys are stupid.

I know that you have probably gone through multiple heartbreaks and still haven't found the one. Trust me, I know that it is a struggle trying to find someone that treats you right.

What I am here to tell is that everything will work out for you.

I understand that at this point you are thinking about giving up because it just seems like it is not worth it anymore. I get it but I want you to listen when I tell you that it is.

I hate the male population just as much as you I am sure of it but what I’m told is that you know when you found the one.

With that being said, I say you stop stressing over trying to get into a relationship and just enjoy life. Go out with your friends and do whatever without having to worry about anything. I feel that girls our age think that we only have a certain time frame to find somebody and then once we hit a certain age it is like well looks like I’m single forever. That is not at all how that works.

The best things come to those who wait and you most definitely won't see them coming.

I understand that it is something that everyone our age is starting to want move out, find the one, and start a family. But let me ask you this: Would you rather rush through all of that and have it all come tumbling down on you? Or, would you rather take your time and find the one and enjoy the rest of your life with them? I think the answer to that question is very obvious.

With that being said, being single isn't really all that bad.

You have to take the time to really know and love yourself before it will ever work with anyone else. Being single is the time to figure all of that out. The time for you to figure out what your goals in life are. The time you, yourself, decide what you want your future to look like. I know that some of those questions are for you to answer with whoever you decide to spend your life with but there are some things you need to know yourself. You want to have a career that you enjoy and no one should get in the way of you being what you want to be.

You want to be a teacher, photographer, engineer, doctor... You name it, then go for it.

Don’t let anyone influence you making this decision. If doing want you want to do means lots of college, then do it. The goal, here, is to know what you want before you try going to make it work with anyone else.

So, to the single girl that thinks she will be single forever, I need you to do me a favor. I want you to take a couple steps back and enjoy this time in your life that you will never get back.

Don't spend it being miserable because guys are stupid. Just take your time and don't try to rush anything. Everyone finds the one at different times in their lives. So, no worries, your time will come and I know that it will be everything you ever wanted.

To all of the single girls out there, I can only hope that you take a bit of advice and be patient - your time is coming and the one for you is out there.

Why You Should Stop Chasing Him

You deserve better.

They say “the thrill of the chase" makes someone more enticing. There's just something about wanting something you can't have that drives you crazy (in a good way). There is never a dull moment. Pursuing him is a challenge. Nothing comes easily. What's the fun in that anyway?

I'm going to tell you this: stop chasing him. Stop forgiving him when he forgets to answer your text messages and phone calls. Stop being the one to always make plans. Stop letting him bail on you. Stop waiting around for him. Stop being lied to. Stop making excuses when he doesn't make time for you. There is a difference between someone who is “hard to get" and a flat out jerk who doesn't give you the time of day. Stop letting him use you.

You deserve to be with someone who makes you fall asleep every night in the middle of texting him because neither of you want the conversation to end. You deserve someone who plans dates for the two of you. You deserve someone who asks you to hang out before midnight. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you just as much as you do with them. You deserve someone who insists on paying for your ice cream. You deserve someone who won't deceive you. You deserve someone who is straightforward. You deserve attention. You deserve affection. You deserve a partnership that is mutual, not one-sided. You deserve to be chased.

You are better than 3 a.m. “Hey" texts. You are better than a night spent watching a movie just to fool around. You are better than trying to decode his vague messages. You are better than his shadiness. You are better than mind games. You are better than being ignored.

If you have to chase him, he's not worth it. Don't settle for someone who makes you beg for his attention. If he is genuinely interested in getting to know you, he will put in the effort. A relationship where your feelings are reciprocated is far more rewarding than one where you constantly feel like you have to drag him along.

Change your mentality. Become more independent. Be confident, be bold. Find happiness in being alone. Don't waste your time pathetically chasing after someone who doesn't feel the same, but doesn't have the heart or the courage to tell you so. Your self-confidence and positivity will make you radiant, and eventually, you will attract the kind of guy who is mature enough to not mess with your head.

Looking for a fright? Try "Dying Light."

Good night, good luck.


"This is Jade, get to the nearest safehouse and wait until dawn... Good night, and good luck." The radio goes off as your watch beeps. It is now 21:00, and you are in danger. In the night, things are never the same...

Dying Light is one of the most iconic zombie games of this era, featuring never before seen concepts in its genre. It also features one of the most scary features of all, drawing inspiration from Minecraft. Here are all the things that makes Dying Light terrifying. Beware, violent images ahead.

A better "Dead Island"

"Dying Light" was developed by Techland - a company famous for its prior zombie game: Dead Island. Dead Island was a hit due to its new mechanics involving heavy emphasis on melee combat and weapon crafting. This put players in a tough spot because unlike its predecessors of "Left 4 Dead" or "Killing Floor," guns are a rarity and survival depends on resourcefulness.

After the failed release of "Dead Island: Riptide" - a low effort expansion - Techland parted ways with their publisher Deep Silver, in pursuit of a game that they can formulate on their own.

Flash forward to 2015, and "Dying Light" was released with massive success. It featured functions not available in "Dead Island" while debuting a new feature: parkour. Yes, you read that right, parkour.


Parkour was an interesting system to be implemented in a zombie game, but it would make total sense when you think more about it. Imagine the streets being filled with mindless zombies. One bite, and you're infected. Leave untreated, and you're gone. The rooftops is the only safe option, and you need the athleticism to scale buildings and run away from danger. In Dying Light, you're not a hunter. You're the hunted.

The night

Fear not the day, for night is your true enemy. In "Dying Light," zombies are infected with a special virus. This strain of virus is afraid of UV light, meaning that during the day, the zombies' motor functions are extremely suppressed, making them sluggish and dumb. But when night comes, the virus unleashes its full potential, turning slow zombies into athletic and crazed chasers that can pursuit you for miles at incredible speeds.

Other than that, at night, a special mutation of zombies appear called "Volatiles." They are athletically superior, incredibly strong, and are terrifying. They usually emit a gargling sound and makes clicking noises, both of which join together for a scary combo. Plus, in the night, you are vulnerable. Sneaking while watching out for monsters in the dark isn't exactly easy.

Equipped with a UV Flashlight with limited battery life, you are left with only one weapon for self-defense if you ever find yourself in a pursuit. And in all cases, just run.


"Dying Light" has an interesting approach to noise. Zombies are very sensitive to noises. A gunshot, an explosion, a car alarm, or a loud crash onto a crumbling building could attract hordes to your position. In this game, noises determine your survival at night. Know when to throw a firecracker for distraction or when to trip car alarm traps could mean the difference between surviving a night and not seeing the day.

Dying Light Noise Attracts Virals

Closing words

"Dying Light" promises a unique zombie experience different from most games. It's gritty, it's scary, and it's fun - these standards are those that game developers could only dream about when designing a zombie franchise. Nothing is more bone-chilling than hearing a volatile scream as the night comes, an explosion going off nearby, or when the sun sets gently behind the slums of Harran. But zombies aren't the only threats. Humans are an entire different ball game, but that's up to you to explore.

Good night and good luck...
