All the single ladies, put ya hands up.

  3. Happy Hour.
  4. Getting to travel or move anywhere in the world without feeling guilty or restrained.
  5. Harry Potter Marathon Weekends.
  6. Any and everything related to Beyonce.
  7. Chipotle.
  8. Rolling up "squad deep" to parties and bars with your friends.
  9. And then leaving equally squad deep to go get in yoga pants and laugh about every ridiculous escapade of the evening.
  10. Netflix.
  11. Re-reading The Fault in Our Stars 10 times.
  12. Learning something new and unexpected that changes you for the better.
  13. Singing obnoxiously in the car.
  14. Wine.
  15. Wine.
  16. Knowing concretely that wine had to be said multiple times on this list.
  17. Hanging out with your mom.
  18. That miraculous moment when no one is really at the gym.
  19. It's like, PRIVATE GYM, WHAT UP.
  20. Pinterest.

  22. Having some time by yourself to just stand outside and soak up the overwhelming joy that you're alive.
  23. Nutella.
  24. Gossip Girl.
  25. Weekend sales.
  26. Seriously, that crap can be half off.
  27. The song "Problem" by Ariana Grande.
  28. New shampoo.
  29. French fries. If you tell yourself you don't have a deep passion for French fries, you're just lying to yourself.
  30. Finding a new hobby or interest.
  31. Actually having the time to dedicate to exploring that new hobby or interest.
  32. Pitch Perfect.
  33. Entire containers of Ben and Jerry's.
  34. EOS lip balm.

  36. Waffles.
  37. Movies with Ryan Gosling in them.
  38. Concerts.
  39. Taylor Swift girl power anthems.
  40. Eating a home-cooked meal after you haven't eaten anything that wasn't frozen or packaged for too long.
  41. Having a surplus of pillows.
  42. Dancing like a diva.
  43. Sleeping in.
  44. Online shopping.
  45. Understanding that half of these items are more comical than accurate and yet there is an underlying truth. What is the greatest part about not having a boyfriend? It's understanding that you do not require one to be complete. You should be happy with who you are on the inside, and content watching Netflix marathons and going out with friends. When the right guy comes around, he will. Until then, go blast some Beyonce ladies, being single is a beautiful thing.
