10 Trends That Need To Die In 2016

All the social media trends of 2016 that are too played out

10 Trends That Need To Die In 2016

2016 has had it's moments and these are definitely some of them. Trends have came and gone and every year we see some really bad ones. I beg the world that by the end of 2016 and entering 2017 that these will die off.

1. Waist Trainers

These are getting very annoying especially when every Instagram Model is trying to sell them

2. Skinny Teas

Every celebrity and famous Instagrammer is now making money by promoting teas that will reduce bloat, but it is just an expensive way to lose water weight.

3. Netflix and Chill

Find another way to have a date in 2017

4. Cultural Appropriation

Like the picture says culture is not a costume. Have respect for other cultures, and that means don't adopt them as your own if you are not that culture. A lot of celebrities are guilty of this.

5. Any Challenge

All of these mannequin challenges and other challenges like #LongHairChallenge, #GloUpChallenge, #SkinnyChallenge, etc. At first they were funny and nice to take part in but now they gotta go.

6. Dabbing

Once Grandmas, politicians, and even the peanuts guy at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade do it then it is dead.

7. Camouflage

We can still see you

8. Cheap "Fashionable" Clothing

Yes the clothes look good on the Kim Kardashian like models, but the clothes are cheap for a reason.

9. Kermit and Arthur Memes

Another meme that were funny at the beginning but are now played out.

10. Clowns

They are scary.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
