Yes I Get It, My Room Is A Mess

What do you get when you combine two weeks of laundry with old coffee mugs and a half eaten Poptart on the nightstand? No, this isn’t a riddle meant to teach you the errors of your ways. This is a description of my bedroom. Yes, it’s messy. Yes, I should throw away that other half of that Poptart. Yes, half of my sheets are on the floor. But no, I will not be changing this anytime soon because this unkempt room is the perfect analogy for my life.

I’m busy. I attend the University of Michigan–we’re all busy. If you aren’t in class, the Ugli, or Skeeps you’re probably at a club meeting or discovering a new microorganism. This is what makes the University of Michigan so special to me. This isn’t high school anymore where it’s cool to skip class and slack on homework. We have all been given the opportunity to attend one of the best universities in the world and no one is taking that for granted. So, sorry I didn’t get a chance to tidy up I was busy dealing with the public relations for KGrams and making a difference in elementary school students lives.

That heaping pile of clothes piled on my desk isn’t just a pile of clothes. The pile may be large and overwhelming but I know what is on that desk. If you asked me where my Patagonia Vest is I would tell you it’s in the near middle of the pile. If you ask me where my favorite mauve nail polish is, I know the answer. You see, this pile of clothes is just like my life. To others it may seem chaotic and unorganized but not to me. I know every article of clothing, necklace, and nail polish that is scattered across the desk. From an outsiders view my life may appear to be turbulent but to me, its just another adventure waiting to be gone through and put away.

When walking into my room you may ask yourself why is there a hair blow dryer, a pair of black pumps, and 3 textbooks in Taylor’s bed? To which you should answer yourself, she is a multi-tasker. I don’t have time to just be blow-drying my hair. I need to be blow-drying my hair, catching up on my psychology readings and putting on my shoes and I need to be doing so simultaneously.

I’m an optimist and that makes be believe I always have time to do one more thing before I run out the door. Being an optimist doesn’t mean I’m not a realist, this just means I realize I need to be doing that one extra thing while I do thirty-seven other things. Interview in 20 minutes? Just enough time to find the square root of pie, travel to the moon, and make a cup of coffee.

You see, my messy room isn’t just a messy room… or maybe it is a messy room and I just don’t want to clean it.

Sorry Mom.

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.
