1.Stop posting negative sh*t about celebrities on social media. Miley Cyrus does not care what you think about her haircut, Justin Bieber does not care what you think of his tattoos and Gwyneth Paltrow couldn’t care less regarding what you think about her diet.
2. Stop resenting yourself for drunk texting your ex. Sure, its a little embarrassing, but at least you’re addressing your feelings. Not that you should aim to drink an entire bottle of rum then see what happens, but… roll with the punches.
3. Leave the country. If you don’t have money, look into doing charity work abroad. Some programs will sponsor you.
4. If you hate your job, quit your job. Repeat after me: THE MONEY IS NOT WORTH IT. Food and shelter are clutch though, so make sure you have another job lined up.
5. Stop beating yourself up for skipping the gym on days you truly didn’t have time. But also, stop skipping the gym on days you had plenty of time to go.
6. Make up — not to be confused with make out — with an ex.
7. Rid yourself of enemies. Apologize for what you did wrong and forgive those who have wronged you.
8. Rid yourself of “frenemies.” Don’t spend 2014 surrounded by people you secretly despise.
9. If you think somebody is cute, say “hi” and introduce yourself. Every relationship you have ever had started with a greeting.
10. Leave your phone number for someone. Worst-case scenario: you won’t get a call and maybe you’ll feel a tiny bit embarrassed. Regardless of the outcome, you put yourself out there and probably made the other person’s day.
11. Stop caring about how many people “like” your Instagram photos. If you like the photo enough to post it, what else matters? Social media anxiety is a waste of time.
12. Cross something off your bucket list. Sky dive, bungee jump, scuba dive, etc. Don’t make excuses as to why you can’t accomplish something, and check out
13. Stop hating yourself for eating dessert. A piece of birthday cake is a right, not a privilege.
14. Keep a journal. It doesn’t have to be something you use daily, but documenting your experiences is incredibly important. You’ll appreciate it later.
15. Strengthen relationships with family members. Blood is thicker than water.
16. Help strangers. “Pay it forward,” do good things for the world — and don’t post a Facebook status about it.
17. Conquer a fear. Personally, I fear Bikram yoga.
18. Turn off your smartphone at dinner.
19. Don’t check your Twitter feed when you’re with friends.
20. Try a fashion trend you never thought you could pull off. And, do it with confidence. Floppy hats, snap backs, Harem pants; you can do it!
21. Double-text without fear. THOU SHALL NOT BE IGNORED!
22. Shop locally, eat locally and recognize where your money is going. Consumers control the economy, so visit the mom-and-pop coffee shop down the street instead of Starbucks. Shop at boutiques rather than chains (they aren’t all expensive — trust me). Try Etsy.com instead of retail conglomerates.
23. Cry. When you’re happy and when you’re sad; embrace your emotions as they come.
24. Stop being so shallow. Next time you find yourself judging someone based on his or her appearance, imagine the person standing in front of you saying, “I’m beautiful.” You’ll start to believe it.
25. If you want someone to commit to you, vocalize it. Don’t settle for being someone’s “f*ck buddy” if that isn’t what you want. “Together” is the waiting period between “talking” and “dating”; purgatory shouldn’t last forever.
I love every single one of these… Perfect for 2014.
no one is a worse texter than a straight white boy
Everyone is dating and being cute and happy while in the meantime I’m just looking forward to my solo dinner of hamburger helper. Pretty sure I win here!
I’m so excited to move into a house August 1st, just sadfgjbsduhg
I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL I MOVE OUT INTO MY OWN HOUSE, I JUST CAN’T.
I love that you use half my bottle of nail polish remover, ruin my towels by rubbing your nasty ass red nail polish all over them, use my toothpaste/shampoo/conditioner/bodywash, use all my papertowels for toilet paper because for some reason you just can’t buy your own toilet paper??, throw a party with a ratio of 12 men to every woman, have said party until 3:30 in the morning when I asked you so many times to stop it because I had to wake up in 4 hours, have your creepy ass guys try to get in my room and walk in the apartment like they own the place when you’re not even here, drink my alcohol, spill beer all over the floor that you never cleaned, NEVER CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PARTIES, go into your roommate’s rooms when they’re not there, drink all my water and never put more in the pitcher, break my bike, and kick out our friends from a party we throw because you’re feeling bitchy that night.
And what I love the most is that all the while you think that you’re in the right
I absolutely love it, can you tell?
Finding a house is so complicated, oh my gosh. Is there not a house store that I can just go to and pick which one I want and take care of everything right there and then? Seriously people…
But I am so excited to move out of this apartment where people never replace the toilet paper, and use my paper towels for toilet paper, or play music loudly between 4-7am, or never do the dishes. Oh lord, the DISHES.
That is all.
I love my new apartment, but my room is just so bland and ugh. I would say I need to go buy some decorations, but I am bland and not creative and lazy and I just have no idea what to do
