Trend Alert: Why I Wear “My Intent” Bracelets

So what is so special about these small little bracelets? The answer is more than you can imagine.

A new celebrity favorite, “My Intent” bracelets are taking over our social media. You might have seen these coin-like bracelets on celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Cody Simpson and many more. So what is so special about these small little bracelets? The answer is more than you can imagine.

Chris Pan is the guy to thank when it comes to these meaningful dainty bracelets. The founder started this company/ movement in Los Angeles, California. The intent (no pun intended) for starting this company was to spread positive energy and encourage meaningful conversations.

I first saw these bracelets on Instagram and I fell in love right away. The idea of having a word or phrase that you strongly believe in being able to be made into a piece of jewelry is pretty cool, to say the least. We all need to be motivated from time to time, and what better way to do that than wearing your motivation on your wrist at all times?

Here is my “My Intent” story. I personally need constant motivation in order to get through the day. The phrase that I chose for my “My Intent” bracelet is SELF LOVE 105. To me, SELF LOVE is very important. Being able to love yourself is harder than it sounds. It is really easy to pick out all the bad things that are wrong with us but picking out the good ones is not that easy.

I have always had a very bad attitude when it came to loving myself, I would constantly pick out every little thing that I do not love about my body and everything that I wanted to change. Having the phrase SELF LOVE on my bracelet reminds me to think positively about myself and love myself whether I am having a shi**y day or the best day of my life.

Now you are probably wondering what the 105 stands for. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you (since I’ve started writing articles, I feel like the whole world knows every little detail about me, so why not tell you this). The 105 is not a class number or a date like some people assume. The number 105 actually means 105 pounds.

I’ve always had some body image insecurities since I was little and 105 pounds has always been the weight that I loved myself the most at. Now tying this back in with SELF LOVE; instead of worrying about what people will think about me or this whole 105 pound thing, I learned to always love myself and focus on ME. No one is living in my body other than me so the weight that I will love myself at (which is 105 pounds) is the weight that I will push myself toward.

I’ve had my “My Intent” bracelet for a little over a month now and it is doing wonders. Whenever I am feeling discouraged during school or frustrated at work, I look down at my wrist to give myself that little reminder. This bracelet is not a medication or magic trick to motivate you or make you be positive. It is all about you and you motivating yourself. You are the one choosing the word or phrase that keeps you going and you are the one channeling your negativity to positivity when looking down at your bracelet every day. I strongly suggest giving “My Intent” a try if you are struggling with being positive and motivating yourself (and let’s not forget how stylish it is).

So my question to you is; what is your word?

10 Games That Will Make Or Break Your Friendships

Going through hell and back with your friends can be as simply done as playing these games. You might actually just want to leave them there.


Some nights, you might think to yourself "I just have too many friendships!" To remedy this, play any of these games! If you're looking for new ways to ruin your relationships, look no further.

1. Move or Die

Move or Die will always keeping you on the go. No, literally, if you stop moving, you'll drop dead. Different puzzles and game modes keep the pace of gameplay rapid, with games where the floor slowly disappears, bombs fall randomly into a decaying landscape, and you literally stab your friends in the back with a chainsaw. Each round takes roughly 20 seconds as this chaotic game of chance will make you ruin your relationships for the sake of sweet, sweet victory.

Local and Online.

2. Brawlhalla

Brawlhalla is an easy to learn fighting game, making it accessible to a wider range of friends with its simple one button finishing moves and attacks. With an emphasis on air attacks instead of ground, you'll see yourself slapped out of the air enough times to want to slap the controller out of your friends hand. Less gamer inclined people do well, which can make you potentially resentful of your friends' newfound winnings, which you might spitefully chalk up to "beginner's luck."

Local and Online.

3. Cloudberry Kingdom

The puzzles in Cloudberry Kingdom look easy and straightforward, but the increasingly difficult and randomly generated levels will probably have you screaming at the screen within a couple levels. (No cheating possible.) You can spend time customizing your adorable character with funny hats and capes, only to watch them burn up into lava because your "friend" jumped on the only cloud AGAIN and you have to start over.

Local and Online.

4. Ultimate Chicken Horse

Imagine a 2-D platform game that only asks that you cross the finish line. That sounds easy, right? Now imagine that your friends will have a selection of weapons or items to either help you or kill you, though we all know with one is more likely. You'll watch your pals (enemies) effortlessly finish with a coin bonus in tow while crossbows shoot the ambition out of you and black holes drag you inches away from the end. This game will truly test how benevolent you and your friends are.

Local and Online.

5. Deceit

As the title implies, this game is about lying, specifically to your friends. Two out of your six friends will be infected, but you won't know who. To find out who is the liar, you'll have to wildly accuse your allies based on the faintest of suspicions, until the infected collect enough supplies to turn into monsters and kill you. To prevent this, you'll have to shoot your friends, which sounds bad, but your friendship will survive. (Probably).

Online only.

6. Overcooked! 2

Overcooked! 2 has you and your friends cooking quick dishes in harmony to hordes of hungry customers. Or, more likely, your friends throw your sliced chicken off the stage or don't take the rice off the stove and proceed to burn down the kitchen. While Overcooked! 2 is not nearly as stressful as other puzzle games, this fast paced and deceptively cute game masks how frustrating a kitchen can be.

Local and Online.

7. Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts is a gelatinous fighting game. You'll have to throw your friends off the level, but instead of being able to use combos and defeat your friends through practiced skill, you'll barely be able to control your own character. The floppy mechanics of Gang Beasts makes it near impossible to guess what will happen as you try to throw your friends off the stages, pro wrestler style. The jelly like controls make it just as likely that you'll kill yourself rather than your friend, making a humorous, albeit aggravating experience with friends.

Local and Online.

8. Speedrunners

Speedrunners is a particularly competitive game, in which players race through a looped stage while the screen grows smaller and smaller over time. Items like the claw (the claaaaw) and rockets will throw your pal, or you, into death as the screen closes around them. Even items like a bomb can also be used to either propel your friend forward or toss them backwards, showing how much you truly value their companionship.

Local and Online.

9. Dead by Daylight

Dead by Daylight adds a new layer to wanting to kill your friends, because one of you will be trying to do exactly that. You and three other friends will have to start generators to escape the killer. Trying to predict how your friend will hunt you down while coordinating with friends to escape will strain any relationship. If you're caught, you'll be hung on a meat hook (Texas Chainsaw Massacre style), and one of your friends will have to risk helping you to their own peril or they could just decide to leave you hanging. This dynamic of hiding and teamwork could make your group tighter through a "no man left behind" mentality or allow discord to ultimately kill everyone.

Online only.

10. Super Smash Bros.

The classic. The champion of lost friendships. No game will deteriorate a relationship faster than Smash. The recently released Ultimate features a larger roster than ever before, making it possible to be defeated by the cutest of Nintendo characters, which just makes everything so much worse. Depending on how competitive you are, watching your friend murder you with a plant can erase any good feelings in an instant.
