Ignore Social Media Instead Of Nature, You'll Thank Yourself For It

The sounds of nature relax you more than scrolling through Instagram.

Ignore Social Media Instead Of Nature, You'll Thank Yourself For It
Bethany Seibel

It's so nice to just sit outside and listen. Go somewhere where only a few cars go by and there are minimal people. Feel the warmth on your face and the fresh air in your lungs while you're taking a deep breath.

It's nice to go somewhere different but yet you're breathing the same air and feeling the same sun that you breathe and feel when you go everywhere. Leave your phone at home and just be still and listen. The waves, if you're by a lake or the ocean, are rushing wild and free. The birds in the sky are communicating with one another. The wind is moving through the sky and the trees.

The sounds that are always there but somehow are the sounds that we always miss because we're too busy. We're too busy to take a walk and be aware of our surroundings or we're too busy to go to a river and just watch the rushing water, and we're too busy to really appreciate all the things that nature has to offer. Why? There's really nothing to do a lot of the time but we make social media and Netflix a priority when it takes up unnecessary time we could be using to get in touch with nature.

The beauty outside doesn't need to be posted on Instagram and you don't have to do a Snapchat of the ocean you go to. Just live and appreciate the beauty that God has given us and the life you have.

Go somewhere for the weekend, I know funds can be tight but Airbnb is a great website or app to use and find somewhere to go and just be. It's nice to be in the loop but it's so refreshing to be outside of the loop and do your own thing and live your own life.

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.

Allyson Foutty

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.
