I’m going there.

It’s finally time to hit the tween of all tween mother-ships and write about: One Direction.

One Direction happens to be my guilty pleasure, there is just something about the whole boy band thing that brings me back to a time where N’SYNC and Backstreet Boys were the kings of the land and used to make me dance around my playroom for hours on end. Boy bands are just ever 90’s kid jam. If you are a girl from the 90s and you don’t at least appreciate the One Direction phase you had an awful childhood.

My favorite, adorable love song of theirs Little Things. There is not a lyric in the song that doesn’t make me want to curl up in a ball with my stuffed animal and blanket. Can you imagine a boy saying to you they are in love with you and all your little things? Like how you can’t go to bed without a cup of tea, or your voice and your thighs? Ha, if a guy said that to me in a heartfelt way they could marry me tomorrow.

You never love yourself half as much as i love you
You’ll never treat yourself right darling but i want you to
If i let you know, I’m here for you
Maybe you’ll love yourself like i love you oh

My favorite third act twist in the song comes in with the above lines. A guy is supposed to love a girl twice as much as she loves herself. Well, a girl has to love herself to be able to handle a healthy, stable relationship but the guy loving her that much doesn’t hurt the situation. I’ve always said that girls should be treated like princesses, so thank you One Direction for telling the world to treat their girls right. Some things should just be common sense, but as our tour guide in Italy Jose would always say, “Common sense is the least common of the senses”. Our one chaperone loved that quote.

You still have to squeeze into your jeans, but

You’re Perfect to Me.

Hi, all girls listen to that. You are perfect to somebody, and you can squeeze into those jeans all you want. They look fantastic on you! Quinnipiac is doing a confidence week and I’ve really been appreciating it. I found this in the bathroom yesterday and I couldn’t help but smile.

So you should smile, because you are beautiful, and listen to Little Things by One Direction and pretend someone is singing it to you! You deserve it!

Love, Lindsey

Lucky

This week is seriously dragging on and all I want is for it to be Friday. I get to go home and celebrate my birthday (a little early) and see the loves of my life aka my parents. I haven’t seen them since January and it is seriously breaking my heart. I am a huge homebody, and if I don’t get my “home-fix” every so often I go insane.

Talking about my parents makes me the happiest person alive. So I’m going to write about another one of my mom’s favorite songs. It’s a duet by Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz, “Lucky”, and it is probably one of the prettiest songs I’ve ever heard. I’ve always been a huge fan of both of them, but this song is just pure gold.

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

My goal in my love life is to fall in love with my best friend. I mean that by saying I want to find someone who makes me, happy, and loves me for me. I think those qualities come from a best friend, and can be best found in a friend first. Friends are the family you get to choose in life, isn’t that the same as a husband? They become your family and you choose them so I feel the connection is close. Plus, I’m just a hundred percent myself around my friends and family which is the best way to be.

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you, I promise you, I will

Like I’ve mentioned before I fall in love with lyrics, waiting for love seems like it takes a life time. I know I’m only 20 (almost 21!) but as girls watching movies programs us to think that it is out there. That something big will happen, we will be swept off our feet. It’ll happen, but you have to put yourself out there. But I love the fact that this song says that when they say goodbye they never want to stop. It’s adorable, and exactly what I want. I have high hopes I know that, but why settle for something less than love? We should want the best for ourselves, and no we shouldn’t just “accept the love we think we deserve” unless that love is 100% the best it can be.

Every girl deserves to be treated like a princess, regardless of what day it is. Find the love that is worth it, that makes you feel lucky that you’re in love with your best friend.

Love, Lindsey
