10 Things You Still Have To Do In 2016

Let's leave 2016 on a good note.

10 Things You Still Have To Do In 2016

The top three trending hashtags on Twitter this year were #Rio2016, #Election2016 and #PokemonGo.

I'm not really sure how I feel about those being the trending topics for this past year, but I do think they are representative of what we obsessed about in 2016. We only have five days left of the year and I think most of us are pretty much ready for a fresh start. We want to do some things differently in the coming year and that is perfectly healthy, but we do need to wrap up 2016 the best we can.

Here are ten housekeeping items we should all complete before we type up our New Year's resolutions.

1. Write all of your thank you notes for gifts recieved

Leave 2016 grateful.

2. Finish all the leftovers in your fridge

You can't keep eating on those mashed potatoes after the new year.

3. Take down the Christmas decorations

It's definitely a huge pain, but if not now, when?

4. Return/exchange any gifts

Don't feel bad for exchanging a present. Most gift-givers would rather their money go to something you will appreciate than something that will sit in your closet forever.

5. Binge-watch these movies and shows before they leave Netflix


6. Apologize to your dog for making him wear a Christmas sweater for two months

You owe him.

7. Congratulate friends who got engaged over the holidays instead of being bitter about it

It's okay to be happy for other people, I promise.

8. Listen to Buddy Logan's Top Red Dirt Singles of 2016

Where my Texas Country fans at?

9. Put aside all your political hostility because there is no room for that in 2017

Seriously, it's over.

10. Get your fill of Starbucks holiday drinks while you still can

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
