If I Had 10 Wishes, We'd All Be Thriving

9. I'd wish for advancement.

If I Had 10 Wishes, We'd All Be Thriving

With all the talk about the Aladdin remake, I started thinking about how the magic lamp gave Aladdin the genie. If I could be granted 10 wishes, what would I even wish for? After thinking about my family, friends, dreams, and hopes, I came up with these 10 things. Truly, if everybody in the world could have these granted, the world would be a better place.

1. I'd wish for peace.


We all need inner peace and world peace. More of that to go around would be amazing. Talk of nuclear weapons would stop, and the world could finally work together instead of against each other.

2. I wish that everyone had a home.


No human being should not know shelter or the feeling of having a home. Whether this is a roof or a group of people, everybody needs to experience the safety and happiness of a home.

3. I'd wish for equity.

Many people confuse equity and equality. Equity is fairness. Equality is sameness. By wishing for equity, there would no person left behind. No longer would disabilities prevent anyone from doing anything. Each and every person would get exactly what they need to make it in this world.

4. I wish that we would stop climate change.

Climate change is so terribly scary. Earth is dying, and we are so heavily contributing to it. If we do nothing, there will be no future. Without a future, what are we doing here? The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is a federally funded program and their evidence of climate change is scary.

We need to preserve this beautiful planet for as long as possible.

5. I'd wish for more time.


My biggest fear is that time runs out before I'm ready. Moments end too quickly. The best memories, events, and years, are gone in the blink of an eye. More advancement in technology to let you live longer would allow for more of it all.

6. I wish for happiness.


Whatever my genie thinks will make me truly happy, I want it.

7. I'd wish for cures.


Every ailment and disease needs to have a cure. Mental health and family medical history can really determine a person's whole life, but cures would solve everything.

8. I wish to know if God is real.


My God is based on faith, but I want to know. Is all the pain worth it? Is anybody listening? A 'no' to this question would change a lot of lives, some for the worst but many for the better.

9. I'd wish for advancement.


Advancement piggybacks on equity. It takes advancement to safely and securely get to equity. Our would needs advancement in treatment of people, technology, and so many other things.

10. I wish for more wishes.


C'mon, you knew this one was coming!

Would you make any of the same wishes? Would you change some of mine?

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

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.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

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.
