  1. DONT PAY ATTENTION TO HIS SOCIALS

If you don't have the willpower to delete him off of everything (like me), just try your absolute hardest to not constantly be stalking to see if he posted a snap/insta story, or monitor his likes on twitter. If you do this you are SEARCHING to be hurt. If you see his stuff in passing, cool. But don't go out of your way to make yourself upset.

2. Actually try to talk to other boys.

This might sound ~bad~ but something that I have been trying is to just talk to other boys to keep my mind off of things. Sure some could view this as problematic to be entertaining other boys, but my excuse is that if they know that it's not that deep then there's no harm done

3. Other guys aren't him sis, stop looking for silly flaws.

Something that I also find myself doing is when I do find a new guy that I think I may start to like. I look for so many flaws within his personality. But in reality I am being totally unfair because I am just saying that they are flaws because they are not acting the same as my ex. If you are doing this it's not good!! It's not fair to you and your new interest.

4. If it is meant to be it will!!

I know so so cliche. But it's so true maybe the reason you are so upset about this break up and can't get over it is because you guys are meant to meet up again but just at a later date, or maybe your not at all. But just know that everything happens for a reason and if things are meant to happen they will, we can't control everything in this life.

5. Time heals :)

This is the most painful solution but sometimes the only thing that works. For some breakups you just have to wait everything out and hope for the best. This will absolutely suck and I know that, but as time goes by and life moves on it's gonna begin to get a little bit easier to live a life without that one person.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
