Some of these might be helpful, and some of them might not. Everyone has a different grieving process, and the same goes for getting over a crush. Whoever's been pulling on your heartstrings doesn't deserve any more of your time or emotional investment!

Without further ado, here are a few productive ways to get over whoever he/she/they is.

1. Listen to powerful Adele songs and cry.

I personally recommend "Water Under the Bridge," but "One and Only" is also good. Listen and be cleansed of this toxic ongoing crush. Or just be sadder. Really it's up to you.

2. Read articles about relationship horrors.

Giphy

Maybe reading about other people's romantic woes will turn you off from this oh-so-alluring person. You won't go through that sort of heartache if you just stay single!

3. Go shopping for a new outfit.

Giphy

And go all the way. Turn the dressing room into your personal catwalk. You're hot and that person does not deserve you, period.

4. Enroll in an inordinate number of classes so you're too stressed out to think about that person anymore. 

Giphy

It's classic—keep your mind otherwise engaged. The ultimate distraction is, of course, the chance of tanking your GPA.

5. Hang out with people who actually do like you.

Giphy

You know...a friend or relative. They're obligated to like you at least a little bit.

6. Binge-watch some show on Netflix.

Giphy

I'd recommend "Queer Eye" if you're in the mood for a casual watch, "American Horror Story" if you're willing to commit. This gets back to distraction—can't think about them if you're invested in this TV show.

7. Avoid your crush at all costs.

Giphy

Unfollow them on social media, even. At the end of the day, you have to prioritize you and your feelings over how they'll perceive your avoidance. If you don't see them as often, you'll probably get over them faster.

8. Don't get over the crush.

Giphy

This is a versatile option. You can either continue to pine after your crush, or (and this is the better option) you can confront them directly. Maybe you were wrong and they actually do like you. Never know til you try, right?

Whatever you decide to do, remember to prioritize self-love and self-care over anything else. If you really like this person, at least test the waters with them. If you just want to get over them, distance yourself. Your well-being trumps this crush.

Best of luck!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
