Hello! Sophomore year has quickly come and gone. I am currently sitting here at the Tech Bar wondering where the HECK this year went. I have learned many things about myself within my sophomore year. I feel as though this was a huge year for […]
As we have been drawn closer and closer to believing that love is dead through watching celebrities relationships explode in their faces, we sometimes come to wonder if love still exists. The first offense was the end of a perfect marriage: the split between Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. But the break up that ruined the concept of love for many was when the story came out about Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloe Kardashian just days before she gave birth. (Still not over it.)
I’m not a love guru, (sheesh isn’t that the truth!?) but I can say with the utmost confidence that whatever happens to a celebrity does not mean that your love life will also explode. Your relationship is not defined by the tabloids. Focus on you and the one that makes you happy and you will be a-okay.
For me, my ride or die is currently posted up in Denver, Colorado. Hold onto your questions because I will tell you right now that: yes, it isn’t easy. And no, I do not see him often. But of course, the relationship is all worth while.
My main squeeze, Pete, and I have had to get creative in ways that we show appreciation for each other. Whether that be through FaceTime, snail mail, or in making playlists, we have explored many different mediums.
Here, I am going to share two playlists put together by the dude himself.
This first one is called “for fiddy.” “Fiddy Kal” is a nickname of mine. This playlist is an absolute banger. It has classics such as “Today Was a Good Day” by Ice Cube, “Vienna” by Billy Joel, and “Waves” by Kanye. This group of songs absolutely bumps and is great for any type of mood you are in.
This next one is called “cell phone” as our main form of communication is through our mobile devices. This playlist contains more current songs such as “Hotline Bling” by Drake, “Only One” by Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and “Love$ick (Feat. A$AP Rocky)” by Mura Masa. This playlist is also an absolute banger and is super fun to jam out to.
Both playlists get credited to Pete, a true gem for taking the time to create these.
Well, now that I have dug myself out of the two feet of snow that so kindly decided to fall as we inch closer and closer to spring weather, I have realized that I only have 13 days of school left until summer.
For the next 13 days, I will be drowning in papers and projects gasping for air and any form of entertainment. As stressful times fall upon us college kids, it is important to take 5 and do something that makes you happy. College goes by fast. (Good grief why am I getting old at such a young age???) So, continue to enjoy the “best years of ya life.”
Ah, I’ve said it before and yup, I’ll say it again: music is a huuuge form of happiness for ya girl. I turn to music when I need a lil’ pump up in my life.
Below is a playlist composed of a wide variety of songs that I find are able to catapult me into a good attitude. This playlist includes “Celebration” by Kanye West, “Ventura Highway” by America, and of course “Dancing Queen by ABBA.” Please allow yourself to get a little ~groovy~ with your dance moves and shake off some of the stress that may be your ball-and-chain for the next couple of weeks.
All in all, the end of the semester is definitely crunch time for everyone but it is truly important that it be super fun as well. Take in these last couple of days to enjoy those who may be graduating and those who you won’t see over the summer. Soon, I will be heading off to camp for the summer so until then, I will have these good, good tunes in my ears to keep my happiness in check.
I hope the end of the year brings us as much happiness as Pete is displaying above. And if this picture doesn’t bring you as much as a mere drop of happiness, then sheesh out of luck for you, dude!
Hello! One of the more difficult aspects of college isn’t necessarily maintaining good grades or finding ways to minimize potential FOMO, but it is taking care of yourself. Many college kids make it from freshman year through senior year by swimming in a sea of beer, […]
What a wonderful day it has been thus far in the 2 hours and 5 minutes that I have been awake this morning. Not only is it finally Friday, not only is Easter break less than a week away, but it is also the best day of them all– National Puppy day!
For all my puppy people, dawg’s dawgs, and canine lovers out there, you know just how special this day is. Not only do we get to celebrate all the tail waggers in the world, but we also get to scroll through endless pictures of our friend’s and family’s posts that show a lil’ extra love and appreciation to their pups.
For those of who who have been blessed with having a dog as a part of your family, you know just how special they are. They bring a certain joy that you couldn’t gain from any human. They give you endless love and attention without question.
Today, I want to celebrate the two balls-of-fur that provide me with endless, unconditional love.
This is Coco. She is 10 years old and a rescue from Kentucky. Coco is extremely intelligent which can be very frustrating as she is always looking for ways to sneak out of the yard or onto the dining room table. (Uhm… rude!?) Coco is truly a great dog though. She joins me in nightly slumber parties when I am home from school. She loves to sit on laps when company is over to act as though she is part of the squad. She is a great companion to have and is a very loyal dog. Coco is very lucky to have found our family but we, more importantly, are lucky to have found her.
Alphonse is coming in hot as the woofer of the crew. More casually known as Alfie, this is the pup that everyone fawns over. He is about a year and a half old and is still learning and growing everyday. Alfie loves running around and, unfortunately, digging holes in the back yard. (Uhm… rude too, dude!) He also enjoys spending time at doggy daycare with his pals when everyone else has to work long hours during the day. Alfie is the king of snuggling and will love you so much that it is almost annoying. He is easily comparable to Olaf from Frozen. Even though he is just a pup, Alfie has made a huge impact in all of our hearts.
So throw ya paws up for the dogs in the world today. They give us all of their love so today, and everyday, let’s give them ours. Whether they’re a yipper, borker, woofer, or even the D-O-double G himself, lets show our appreciation for all the dawgs in our lives.
If you want to show some appreciation for your pup today, feel free to give ’em a lil’ shout out action in the comments.
