10 Reasons You Should Travel

Traveling is an adventure waiting with doors open to amazing possibilities. Granting, traveling isn't for everyone but, if you enjoy traveling, you should soak up every opportunity to do so. Life is only so long. There's so many reasons why traveling is essential.

1. Travel gives you a break from reality

Who wouldn't want to spend time away from work or responsibilities to visit a world outside their own?

2. Travel teaches independence

As we speak, I'm planning my itinerary, plans, and what I will need for my trip next month. It's the first time I'm ever planning a trip all on my own and it's teaching me to take control and be responsible.

3. You can experience new cultures

Staying in one place is not only boring, it leaves you uneducated about the world. One city in a large world is not showing you the world. You won't know what's out there unless you see it.

4. Trips can be affordable

Don't put off traveling because you have no money. Many wonderful trips can be planned on a budget with careful research and time.

5. Traveling helps you learn about yourself

You may prefer to travel to an island or to Europe or to the west coast. Knowing where you like to go will help you to understand your personality and your likes and dislikes.

6. You get to spend time with loved ones

I doubt you'd plan a trip with someone you didn't like very much. We generally travel with family and friends. It's a great opportunity to get closer to them and strengthen the relationship.

7. Travel plans never go as planned

Traveling never goes exactly the way we plan. Unexpected problems occur every single time. This helps us grow and learn to face life as it comes. It helps us to expect the unexpected. The best adventures are usually ones you didn't plan for.

8. You can build memories

When your kids and grand-kids ask about your younger years, they don't want to hear that you stayed home and saved money. Trips will create great memories and stories for you and for you to tell to your future family.

9. It's better not to regret

It's better to look back and be thankful you did it, than to regret never having gone on that dream trip. Even the worst of trips and never regretted.

10. Traveling helps you realize that we are all the same, yet different.

Travel is an amazing way to experience how others live and to see how their foods, music, and lifestyle is different than yours. It's also an opportunity to see that we aren't so different. You have the same needs and wants as someone that lives on the other side of the globe.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!
