Winter has come.

9 Reasons Why Winter Is The Absolute Worst

We are in the dead of winter, with snow on the ground, ice on the streets, and the frigid air nipping at our skin. Of all the four seasons, winter is undoubtedly the worst. It doesn’t bring the beautiful blooming flowers of spring, the endless BBQ evenings in summer or the colorful autumn leaves — instead, it brings gray skies, the death of your social life and a heartbreaking bank account. Here are the reasons why winter is the WORST.

1. Chapped lips

This is the worst feeling ever tbh. Thank GOD for ChapStick.

2. Scraping ice off the windshield

As if the winter morning routine was not painful enough, having to leave an extra 10 minutes early to de-ice your car is a pain. I like to play an extreme sport of driving before the windows are defrosted so that I can get to work on time.

3. Ice

For those of us who weren't gifted with good coordination, winter is essentially our worst enemy. Black ice is like a shady little trickster who's personally out to ruin your day. One time I slipped on ice when I was walking to class, and it was the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to me.

4. The cold

When winter air blows on you, it feels like thousands of tiny knives stabbing you in the face. This may seem pretty obvious, but we often forget what cold is really like until it’s the middle of January and we’re on our way to class, questioning whether or not our toes are entering the early stages of hypothermia. Sorry, Elsa, but the cold does bother me.

5. Flu season

Wash your hands, folks.

6. Treacherous driving conditions

Everyone forgets how to drive the second a snowflake hits the ground.

7. Unflattering clothes

No one looks good in three layers of clothes, a big winter coat, Ugg boots, and hat hair. Literally no one. We all look like a bunch of marshmallows waddling down the street.

8. Shorter days

I hate when it's 4 p.m. but it feels like 10 p.m.

9. Ugly black snow

The snow is pretty when it is gracefully falling from the sky and untouched, but after a day or two, it looks miserable and disgusting to look at.

* * *

Winter isn’t all bad, though. It definitely has its perks, like being cuddled up on the couch drinking hot chocolate and listening to holiday music. But aside from those few moments of relishing the beauty of the season, winter is a relentless beast that comes out of its cave every year just to torment us. Just give me back sun, warmth, and summer. Please.

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. 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.
