You Do What You Want When You POPPIN’

Lately it’s been hitting me that I’m 20 years old and I’m technically old enough to do what I want, when I want, where I want, and with who I want. Coming from a strict Haitian household, that’s a pretty major revelation. I have literally just realized that I’m a grown up now.

I didn’t grow up with a lot of freedom. I was the youngest of 3 and the only girl so my mom kept a more than watchful eye on me so when I got to college, saying that I was happy to be out of my house would be an understatement.

So now I’m thinking, “What do i do with this kind of freedom?”

Whatever the hell I want because YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT WHEN YOU POPPIN’.

What’s the point of this post? Well you could be like me waiting for something or someone to tell you that you’ve reached adulthood. Well, here you go. Congratulations. You’re an adult.

You can take trips without asking for permission, you can move out, you can party, you can sleep til 4 o’clock in the afternoon.

I mean you also have bills and other unpleasant adult things too but I mean..it’s totally worth it lol

Relationships SUCK

It’s been awhile, I know. I’ve been trying to (and failing to) get my life together with school but I’m back now!

So Valentine’s Day is over and the air of lovey dovey-ness has finally passed.

I know what you’re thinking. “But aren’t YOU in a relationship?”

Yes. Yes I am.

While my valentine’s day was pretty great, it doesn’t quite change the fact that being in a relationship sucks a good 60% of the time. So if you spent V-Day without anyone special, it’s okay. Bae’s aren’t all their cracked up to be.

So before you, in the spirit of single awareness season, try to find the nearest soul to cuddle up to, here are 5 tips on how NOT to be a sappy single.

  1. Learn how to be happy by yourself or else you’ll find yourself looking for happiness in someone else. Some argue that it’s not all that bad to find your happiness in someone else but what are you going to do if that person leaves? Does your happiness leave with him/her?
  2. Don’t get caught up in “cuffing season” lest you find yourself with someone you have NO business being with either. No one wants to waste their time and that’s exactly what you would be doing dating someone you only kind of like.
  3. Put down your phone. You don’t miss your ex, you’re just lonely/bored/in the mood.
  4. Relax. Not everyone who’s nice to you likes you like “that”. (no shade lol)
  5. Go out and have fun. You really don’t want these relationship problems.
