It'll be okay

To Those Who Are About To Lose Hope

Before anyone asks, you might be wondering why I am about to write about giving up and not losing hope. I'm writing this because I wish someone would've told me to not lose hope as many times as I needed it to be said to me this week.

I definitely was at one of my lowest the past week. I was suffering from a cold, several projects were thrown in my direction, don't even get me started on group projects, band was at the halfway point, I'm trying to keep up with stuff in my sorority, there's this voice in the back of my head telling me dumb things that I really shouldn't worry about, my period is here, and I have been having a lot of off weeks and I just want to curl up in a ball and cry myself to sleep.

It's been the theme for me quite a bit the past couple of weeks but what else is new school has been picking up.

But in those times, I know that there are things that tell me to not give up on the hard times.

Especially with a recent event.

I have a family friend who was pretty much the influencer of why I wanted to go down the special education route of teaching. At the beginning of the year, he announced that after years of trying and fertility things, he and his wife were having a baby. I was so excited for him because he is such a great coach to all of the kids on the challenger team that he would be a great dad to his kid. I couldn't go to their baby shower (yay band) but I would help out on Sunday for his wife if I needed to.

A couple of days ago, their son was born.

He posted a video on Facebook about it and so then I called to congratulate them. They were an example of not losing hope in the darkest of times.

Okay, so I was going to continue but my brain was going in and out of losing my train of thought. However, in light of some recent news in the entertainment industry, I just want to say this.

Talk to someone. You are not alone. You are human. You are important to the world. Even if you might not think that what I am even saying is true, it is. Don't let anyone put you down for being who you are. Take care of yourself. If you even need to take an hour or a day to yourself, do it. People will be there to listen to you, to be a shoulder to cry on, to be that support you need. It might be near, it might be far, but it is there.

Do not lose hope, even in the darkest times. What I might have said in the recent paragraph might sound like bullshit but please, look out for those even the strongest ones.

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.

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

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.
