Be proud of who you are

10 Ways You Can Express Yourself

To express yourself means to let the world know who you are. It is a way to identify and stand out in a world of similar people everywhere you turn. There are several ways we can express who we are through our daily lives like art, writing, music, langauge and more.

1. Writing

Writing is an easy way to express your feelings, your opinions and even to just write stories that interest you.

2. Singing

No matter how good you are, singing can be fun. You can put your own touch on popular songs. No two people ever sing a song exactly the same, that's what makes your singing voice unique.

3. Painting or Drawing

Artwork is a great way to express what you like. You can create a picture however you want and put your own personal touches on the work.

4. Sports

Play a sport you enjoy. By playing soccer, baseball, tennis or any sport, you can have fun and let the world know who you are.

5. A journal

You can keep a daily journal and write down your feelings. You cannot express yourself until you first know yourself and learn who you are and how you feel.

6. Dancing

Dancing is a fun way to express you. There's so many different styles, so you can chose what you like and jump right in.

7. Join a club

Find a club with others who share your interests. The best way to express yourself is with others. You may find many people who think like or like the same things as you.

8. Decorate your room

Put things in your room that let others know that this is you. Your bedroom can be as unique as you. Put up pictures, decorations or quotes that you enjoy.

9. Your style

Wear clothes that make you feel like you. Create a you trend and find a style that you personally love to wear.

10. Play a musical instrument

Take up a new instrument. Playing music is a great way to express yourself. It helps you to shout to the world who you are. Like dance, there's many different styles and you can find the one you enjoy.

Expressing yourself is a great way to let the world know, "This is me and I am proud to be me!"

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
