1. You make me feel like shit more than you make me feel good.

2. I get insecure when I think of you with another girl. We’re not even dating. We’re not even hooking up on a regular basis anymore. We’re “just friends”.

3. You leave me in tears as often as you leave me in laughter.

4. I started liking my best friend less because I was hanging out with you more.

20 Books That Will Change Your Life

Thought Catalog

1. Paint It Black by Janet Fitch

This was one of those books I read as I entered my 20’s and have the tendency to re-read at least once a year. It follows a young woman whose boyfriend commits suicide and the weird path she goes down trying to piece it all together. Fitch is a fantastic writer who likes to use California as a backdrop to women figuring themselves out.

2. The Best of Roald Dahl by Roald Dahl

It wasn’t until I was 21 that I realized my favorite author as a child also wrote fiction for adults. And as I’ve discovered, most people don’t . This is a collection of his more popular short stories, many of which inspired by his time spent in the British military and truly a testament to what an amazing writer he was. It’s a little something to grow with you from…

Find What Makes You Happy

Thought Catalog

Do you loathe your own birthday but count down the days to celebrate for your roommate’s? Do you cook a flawless dish of chicken parmesan for your partner and tell them you can settle with a bowl of Captain Crunch for dinner? Do you come back from vacation with a bag full of shot glasses for your friends but forget to buy one for yourself?

My whole life I have gone completely out of my way to do things for other people. There has never been a time where I’ve just baked a batch of my favorite white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for myself to merrily munch on. I don’t even save a couple to the side because I feel too guilty when they could be in the happy hands of others. I have this innate desire to do things for everyone else. I am an avid people pleaser.

2. “Sometimes we must undergo hardships, breakups, and narcissistic wounds, which shatter the flattering image that we had of ourselves, in order to discover two truths: that we are not who we thought we were; and that the loss of a cherished pleasure is not necessarily the loss of true happiness and well-being.” – Jean-Yves Leloup

Redeeming

Thank you for checking out my blog and hanging out with the girls!  To show my appreciation, here’s a QR code (that hopefully works) for a Bed Bath and Beyond coupon valid in stores.  Take a break, have fun, and splurge yourself with unnecessary but also very necessary items for your homes.

REMEMBER MEme

Instead of tamagatchis, furbies, or pokemon cards, the new craze sweeping the nation are memes.  With all the technological advances you’d think the next big “thing” would be a real life space ship or flying cars that people could own, but hey it’s the little things that bring us joy- I guess in this case they come in the form of a very sarcastic and a little condescending picture on the Internet about issues that are only somewhat funny.  They bring us joy in the moment and help us get through the day, but don’t really do much in my opinion.  Still, people spend their day looking through the same picture (meme) or clip (gif) with a slight variation in text underneath it.  I mean, I’m not judging..whatever helps people get through their boring mundane days I suppose.  But I think this new craze is brought about not just because some of them are actually funny, but because people can relate to them and feel like they are apart of a community when they find others that can also find relevance.  The sense of knowing that someone is going through the same thing as you are or feeling the same way about an issue brings people together and lets them no that they are not alone in what they are going through.  It’s a sense of comfort and bringing people together through some tough times with a laugh and smile on their face.

With that said, I am a little riffed that a Girls meme doesn’t exist on Knowyourmeme.com yet, not going to lie.  Nonetheless, I have found some gifs and memes of our favorite girls to brighten up our day that we can all relate to.

Commonly Creative

Who would’ve thought that not everything on the Internet is copyrighted and images that we take don’t belong to us….  Just kidding nothing besides our inner most being and organs belong to us, and even for that we can’t take all the credit and have to thank our parents for.  So what’s so different from using and taking pictures, images, and videos off of the Internet?  Just because it’s there for us to share, and readily available for us always, doesn’t mean it will always be there for our disposable or that we have the right to, like, post it on our Facebook pages.

The picture I chose to use is the signature “Girls” screen that comes on at the beginning of every episode, as if to tell you “shit’s about to get real, so get your popcorn ready and watch the show.” I never would’ve thought it’d be safe to use but it is here for our enjoyment and use and I am a happy camper about this.

Upon finding the picture, I also wanted to search to see what cool songs and remixes I could find that would also add to my blog.  I was originally looking for a remixed version of “Dancing on My Own” by Robyn, which is one of the iconic songs in “Girls” and is featured on the soundtrack, but I found this cool mashup instead.  Enjoy!

Don’t worry, I’m not being illegal right now- because I would never do such a thing as break the law- but instead, I obtained the picture and remix that add to the aesthetic of my blog from the Creative Commons Search Engine.  They assure users that all their images, videos, and sound files are all copy righted and allowed to be used by the public.  It’s Favoring Fair Use because it is all for a nonprofit educational institution.  So remember next time, think before you link! Make sure everything you use on the Internet is safe!
