5 Reasons That Black Is The Best Color!

The light lies in the dark.

There are plenty of wonderful and beautiful colors in the rainbow! There are so many of them that it is just too hard to pick just one that you love best. Many people say that they love blue or green. Society praises girls for wearing pink and boys for wearing blue. What about the colors that aren't in the rainbow? I tend to be drawn to black. Some argue that black shouldn't even be considered a color. I am here to tell you that the absence of light and the complete absorption of light is a beautiful thing.

1. Makeup!

Ladies! I'm sure that we appreciate many colors when it comes to finding what's best to define our eyes. There are some colors out there that work for different people depending on their skin tones and what they happen to be wearing. Black never fails to work its magic! Eyeliner, lip liner, mascara, and other things look great and make a huge statement in the makeup world. Black often gives a lot of definition to the shape of the eye that makes women come off as fierce. It's bold and leaves us with a powerful look that is striking and even in some ways intimidating (in a good way of course)!

2. The Way We Dress!

Many people over centuries of time have said that they believe black is the color that makes everyone look more slim. I think it's pretty true. Some people are afraid of their body types in different colors because everything is more pronounced in brighter colors. Black is totally different. Wearing black gives us a powerful yet classy feel. It's mostly worn as a professional color. It's a color that you can never go wrong with, and it goes with everything. In my opinion, every woman should have a "little black dress"!

3. Anybody Wanna Buy A Car?

Black cars are the best cars! I've seen so many vehicles that look gross and dingy because of their paint color. All colors are awesome, but I think black works the best. Brighter colored cars tend to look worse when they haven't been cleaned. They also overtime will have a significant amount of normal wear and tear. Bright colors just help show off the damages and dirt much better than black does. Black cars just seem to last a little bit longer when it comes to looks. On a side note, I personally think they are ten times cooler looking in black!

4. Animals!

A long time ago, society came up with a bunch of superstitions about anything and everything black. Cats were specifically disowned and exiled from society because they were believed to bring bad luck. This superstition is also why many people are afraid of birds. Those who gave names to specific animals had a reason for it. For example, a group of crows is called a "murder". A group of ravens is called an "unkindness". It's pretty unfortunate that animals are disowned because of their color. All creatures deserve the same amount of love and care as their multi-colored counterparts!

5. Photographs!

We've all heard the phrase, "a picture is worth a thousand words". Pictures these days are meant to be full of color and full of life. Cameras are updated and redesigned to bring out colors in their best forms. I think that colors are more of a distraction from the things that matter the most. We don't always get the full idea of photos when we focus on the yellows and the reds of the world. Black and white photos are amazing to look at. There's so much more under the surface that we can discover when we are given less to focus on. Many pictures even seem to be more profound and more beautiful when all of the paint is striped away. Those are the ones I love the most!

Let's remember that not everything that is black is considered to be cynical or harmful to our world. Black isn't just depressing and boring. It can bring things to life. Sometimes beautiful things are wrapped up in the most mysterious packages. Step outside of societal norms every once in a while. Go black. Go bold. Go beautiful!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.
