11 Notorious Middle School Throwbacks

Back in elementary school, you were a fragile soul who did'nt know what was going on in the world. All things changed once you hit Junior High, handshake games soon turned into playing pages of M.A.S.H in your notebook and playdates quickly turned into "kicking it" downtown. Most kids rode the bus or carpooled to school, all to be dropped off to be emotionally demoralized by kids who made fun of you for some rumor someone spread around. In these three extensive years, you robotically developed into a "too cool for school" poser who felt obligated to look and talk the same exact way as everyone else (oh, the brain wash). You were a tween who took middle school way too seriously, who also was going through early stages of puberty at the time while dealing with overly dramatic friendship crises. At lunch your clique aways sat at the same spot, somehow finding ways to talk crap about other cliques to help boost your groups self-esteem (*hair flip*). Every other recess someone was bound to be crying in the bathroom all because someone told someone who told everyone who their crush was (this was when trust issues started). All Middle school friends for the most part stabbed you in the back at some point and almost all conversations with them were meaningless, both in person and off your pink Razor. Lastly, almost all material taught in class you still and probably never will touch on again...(R.I.P to all those hours of homework that did not reflect you getting into college). If you ask anyone, Middle school was indeed the most cringing years of their existence...they mostly likely blacked those years out of their minds up until you even popped the question!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
