Because if you know me at all, you know that I hashtag on twitter, I pointlessly hashtag on facebook, and I even hashtag irl. Hashtaging out loud started off as an obnoxious joke, but then it just sort of stuck. I use it as a way to summarize my sentences, I use it for emphasis, EMPHASIS, and I even just use it as a sort of filler word when I don't know what else to say. #Hashtags have made a delightful addition tp my lexicon and for that I'm forever #thankful.
2. Women's Suffrage
Alice Paul worked her buns off in jail, doing hunger strikes and finally after the suffragettes fought the damn good fight, it became a law protected by the 19th amendment. Alice Paul wasn't the only badass to be thankful for, Sourjourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Helen Keller, and Ida B. Wells were some of the other badasses helped give us our rights and really were at the forefront of feminism and we should forever be thankful for them.
3. Public access to contraceptives
Now there are like a MILLION different forms of contraceptives and while they may not all be free, many you can find for free, check out bedsider.org cause this website is something I am definitely thankful for.

5. "Selfies" now "Selfys"
Aka pictures of yourself, taken by yourself. Because in the words Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend, "I think anybody who's anti-selfie is really just a hater. Because, truthfully, why shouldn't people take pictures of themselves? When I'm on Instagram and I see that somebody took a picture of themselves, I'm like, "Thank You," I don't need to see a picture of the sky, the trees, plants. There's only one you." Ugh he's dreamy, anyway he reminded me that I need to believe in my selfies because who else will? I'm thankful for selfies because they have taught me that I need to look cute everyday and that I need to work my angles.
Ugh. I'm thankful for wifi pretty much every day of my life. And if it werent for wifi you wouldn't be reading this right now.
7. Zayn Malik
Girl, what do you think I operate on? Without coffee I would be a zombie about 100% of the time. Coffee is what gets me up in the morning and through my day. Coffee is like a liquid pep-talk that tells me "Don't worry Caelan, today will be okay" and kisses me on the forehead while simultaneously kicking me in the butt, giving me enough energy to last through a day of total and utter bullshit. I'm so thankful for coffee above all things.
9. YOU PUSSYCATS
