Writing Is An Escape

Writing has a big place in the world and I love to contribute to it.

Writing Is An Escape

If you like to write, listen up or I guess read up. Writing has always been an escape for me. It's a way to contribute to the endless stream of words that people see everyday and it's actually everywhere. We write status updates, captions, essays, letters and more. It's been a central part of people's lives and their education.

For some, it takes the back burner but for me, it stays in the front of my mind: always there and constantly within reach. It's my way and many people's way of contributing to that stream that I was talking about earlier. Writing and reading go hand in hand like Mac & Cheese or PB&J. It's one of those iconic duos that people dare each other to name.

One person writes and another person reads it, it's constant and endless and hey guess what, you're reading this now, so exhibit A. I got encouraged to write this after seeing the same little ad on the side of the road on my way home everyday. It said, "You just proved these ads work," and I'll admit, it got me thinking.

People read even when they don't mean to, our eyes just gravitate to letters and images, which helps people like me who gravitate towards assigning meaning to letters and images. I realized early on in life, I don't really write for me. I write for school, I write for followers and long story short, I write for others. Writing is a way to keep others informed, create a fantastical escape for yourself or as a way to vent (remember the old write it down and rip it up). Growing up, my favorite TV characters loved to write like Elena Gilbert from The Vampire Diaries (sorry not sorry) or Veronica Sawyer from Heathers and it really encouraged me to step up with my writing too. I realized as long as it was everywhere and as long as everyone gravitated towards it be it intentional or unintentional, I should try and contribute my own voice.

Don't ever stop writing and don't ever stop reading. I know it may not be for everyone and that is totally okay but for those who like to write, try not to stop. Realize that your voice is important and that with the stroke of a pen or a click of your keyboard you can contribute to this endless stream and one day make a difference with what you have to say.

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. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. 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.
