Let's be real: spiders are terrifying. They are evil spawns of Satan. Whenever I see one I immediately scream until someone else comes to kill it. What did you say? People are supposed to catch spiders and then humanely release them in the great outdoors? Nope. Sorry, bud. They deserve to die. Here are the ten things I would do if I just so happened to find one in my bed.

1. Begin to cry.

I feel like this does not need to be explained.

2. Change my name and move to Iceland.

I would have to remove myself from the situation. You know, be as far away as possible? Iceland is pretty far.

3. Time travel to 1864 to ask Abraham Lincoln if I should set my bed on fire.

I just feel like he would give good advice. He would be super honest with me about the situation and I feel like he would definitely tell me to set my bed on fire, thus ending the life of the spider.

4. Actually set my bed on fire.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F08%2F6359827133232748951674150468_635982478416667557-341732873_IMG_6755.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=529&h=297ec90a28fd928d0d0edb392fee3f0df756fca9a1b459df9aa01c4b1e5ce3a5&size=980x&c=3406017036 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F08%252F6359827133232748951674150468_635982478416667557-341732873_IMG_6755.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D529%26h%3D297ec90a28fd928d0d0edb392fee3f0df756fca9a1b459df9aa01c4b1e5ce3a5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3406017036%22%7D" expand=1]

If this happened, then Abe either agreed with my reasoning and shared the same fear of spiders or told me it was a bad idea. Either way, there is no doubt I would set my bed on fire if I found a spider.

5. Pour hot coffee in my eyes.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F08%2F635982713325462408-1581191167_635982473287430010-188333595_IMG_7316.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=54&h=d890e7ef3bdacd0950505f9ab4f5edb5e17c5062d03451b25a0ccd00e0d244ad&size=980x&c=789491470 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F08%252F635982713325462408-1581191167_635982473287430010-188333595_IMG_7316.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D54%26h%3Dd890e7ef3bdacd0950505f9ab4f5edb5e17c5062d03451b25a0ccd00e0d244ad%26size%3D980x%26c%3D789491470%22%7D" expand=1]

Yes, I might have permanent eye damage, but at least I will never see another spider in my bed.

6. Fling myself into the sun.

No explanation needed.

7. Cry some more.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F08%2F635982713326431930-127573792_635982475418463484-98808197_IMG_1047.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=746&h=c3933d872217c03801a6996c81936c94041653afee7baea81f86ec32fd12557e&size=980x&c=3641546525 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F08%252F635982713326431930-127573792_635982475418463484-98808197_IMG_1047.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D746%26h%3Dc3933d872217c03801a6996c81936c94041653afee7baea81f86ec32fd12557e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3641546525%22%7D" expand=1]

Wait, did I say this already?

8. Apologize to Spider-Man.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F08%2F635982713327337287-1873931366_635982481553745304-2067843325_IMG_9069.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=505&h=719e314ae83ffaf9fbd5827635a31f717117ce93e3bff8f7b7817c891abf4667&size=980x&c=3875745975 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F08%252F635982713327337287-1873931366_635982481553745304-2067843325_IMG_9069.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D505%26h%3D719e314ae83ffaf9fbd5827635a31f717117ce93e3bff8f7b7817c891abf4667%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3875745975%22%7D" expand=1]

I mean, the spider was probably his friend.

9. Buy a new bed.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F08%2F635982713328743517-1846530938_635982483489091677-2092668253_IMG_2104.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=961&h=51046c3d32cca693ff38be6f45383958485ac419dd194f0d120454237f9dc5b5&size=980x&c=2510639383 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F08%252F635982713328743517-1846530938_635982483489091677-2092668253_IMG_2104.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D961%26h%3D51046c3d32cca693ff38be6f45383958485ac419dd194f0d120454237f9dc5b5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2510639383%22%7D" expand=1]

Actually, before this, I would probably call my mom and tell her I was sorry for over-reacting and setting my bed on fire. Then I would buy a new bed.

10. Try to move on from the traumatic event

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F08%2F635982713328743517-1082442611_635982485764114184-1021980208_IMG_7652.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=573&h=11bb6036c7920cb8339a9e3b6ed48f1b585da42b8c0036db0580645fe004e578&size=980x&c=2069589129 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F08%252F635982713328743517-1082442611_635982485764114184-1021980208_IMG_7652.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D573%26h%3D11bb6036c7920cb8339a9e3b6ed48f1b585da42b8c0036db0580645fe004e578%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2069589129%22%7D" expand=1]

After doing all of these things, I would have to move on by getting into my new bed (in my new house in Iceland) and by praying that I would never have to go through this again.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

3521
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.

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.

11609

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.
