Relationships are beautiful things.

Valentine’s Day is now in the past, and I always find it shocking to see how soon the “Love” disappears from social media. It just goes to show that we don’t need a certain day to show our love. Here are some things you can do to show yourself or your loved ones that you care.
Such a simple word, but it brings forth so many different emotions. Is there anyone not triggered by the word love? Maybe it makes the butterflies in your stomach flutter up, up and away. Maybe it makes you scoff with cynicism or bitterness, or simply because you’re too busy to be bothered. Maybe it makes you lower your eyes and reminisce on what was, or what could have been.
I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed with my current schedule, and it’s been putting me into a bit of a funk lately. I decided to clear my head by thinking of all the good things I should be thankful for. Here’s a list of things to be thankful for that you probably take for granted daily.
There is an odd stigma in our society that a girl cannot possibly ask out a boy. It’s unheard of, it makes girls look desperate—you have to wait until he confronts you!
I beg to differ. Waiting for that boy to ask you out may take forever. You may sit there and wait, and wait… and wait, and he may very well never ask. Okay, okay, that’s worse case scenario, but seriously, it happens!
My question is, why do we succumb to this stigma, why don’t we just embrace the fact that we too can ask out guys before they ask us out? I don’t have an answer for you, but I do write to tell you that if you want to ask that man out, girl, go for it!
Hey queen, it’s me again, 2017 Paige. I’m here to chat with you about something so fun and so terrible – money. I know, I know, you just got your first job and you can ACTUALLY go out and buy those shoes for yourself now instead of groveling to your parents about the necessity of a 20th pair of sneakers. I’m here to tell you, you messed up. You messed up kid! Plain and simple. How many times did dad tell you to save your money and did you? NO! I’m here to give you some reasons why/how you SHOULD save your money before you spend anymore of it.
1. You can eat lunch at home.
I know that sounds so boring. However, all that weight you gained in high school could have been avoided had you eaten a healthy meal at home. ALSO eating out almost every day? You could have gotten 200 PAIRS of sneakers if you had just eaten in.
