3 Video Calls Every Long Distance Couple Needs

I never imagined I'd end up in a long distance relationship but here I am, enamored with a person who lives hours away from me. If it wasn't for video calls, I'm not sure we would have been so successful. Phone calls and messages are great but there's nothing like seeing your partner's cute face mirroring your googlee-love eyes that makes all the bother of distance worth it. Having been in a long distance relationship for almost 2 years, I'm sure these are the three video calls you'll need to keep that spark.

Face to face conversations.

Texting and phone calls are nice but sometimes you just want to see your partners face when you talk to them. You wanna see their smile, facial expression, hand gestures. You don't just want their words or their voice you want to be as close to them as technology will allow. Long distance is hard. You really need those face to face calls to look into their eyes and have those deep, intimate, loving conversations.

Other times you just want them in the background

Sometimes you don't feel like talking but you still want your partner around. These video calls are just to have your partner in the background so you can do your own thing but still be together. I've had video calls with my partner where one of us is literally napping while the other goes about their day. Sometimes you don't need to say anything. It's funny how just being in each other's company does things words alone just can't.

The romantic call

And then there's romantic call where you call your partner just to stare stupidly into their eyes and daydream about the next time you can see them. When you're comfortable with someone, awkward things like flirting and intense eye contact suddenly become a fun, sought after way to connect.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

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

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.
