Does anyone still remember Felon Bae? No? Just me? OK.

Way back in the day (2014, in case you’re wondering), Jeremy Meeks got his 15 minutes of fame after his mugshot went viral. Why, you may ask? Because he’s hot, duh. He’s called Felon Bae for a reason.

But don’t worry, guys! He’s back! Our collective bad-boy boyfriend returned from his 27 months in prison to an outrageous Instagram following (but how did he update it from jail???) and a $30,000 modeling contract. In fact, he just made his debut at New York Fashion Week, which is probably a little more pretentious than having your mugshot tweeted incessantly by the thirsty women and men of Twitter (and me).

Here he is, looking fine as hell and substantially richer than I will ever be:

Well, you know what they say: there’s no such thing as bad publicity. Kinda makes prison seem worth it, huh? TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
