5 Risky Hair Styles to Test-Run in Quarantine

Do you handle emotional crisis and/or global pandemic induced anxiety by looking to find something you CAN control? Because, same. While these risky DIY hair styles will make your hair stylist shudder...we find ourselves in an opportune moment of isolation.


Live Out Your K-Pop Dreams and Try a Bold Color


I spent one week as a pink-headed badass in 2016 and it was glorious (unfortunately, my boss did not think so). Order some pink hair dye and live out your princess unicorn dreams. If you have a Zoom meeting, I strongly suggest the potato filter and a simple "oops, not sure how to change it back...oh well". Here's a tutorial

Cut Your Own Curtain Bangs...If You Fail, Just Hide Behind Them


Ah, the cutting of the bangs - the most classic life-crisis-hair-cut there is. Luckily, curtain bangs have a pretty generous margin for error and look super effortless and cool. Worst case, you let them grow out over the next few weeks and do the old behind the ear-tuck.

Crimp Your Hair, Click Your Heels 3 Times, and You'll Find Yourself Back in Simpler Times


Do you have 90s crimping PTSD? I think we're all in agreement that the tight crimp has no place in 2020, but I'm honestly not mad at a loose, beachy, wavy crimp. It takes far less time than a curling iron and looks super cute in a pony-tail the next day.

It's Not Regrowth, Its a Root Stretch...It's Different I Promise


By now, your roots are inevitably creeping in...let them. Order an at-home hair dye that matches your natural color. Apply it to the base of your hair, wait a few minutes, and brush it out to seamlessly incorporate it into the rest of your hair. And voila, you are now a low maintenance queen! Here's a tutorial.

To Be Blunt, Everything Sucks Right Now So Give Yourself a Blunt Cut in Solidarity


Put down the bowl. This is not your mums bowl-cut. This is a sophisticated, blunt chop that will have your ends feeling oh-so fresh *warning* you WILL swish your head side to side and run your fingers through your hair while brushing it like a Disney princess. Here's a tutorial.

Combine the blunt chop with the curtain bangs, attempt a root stretch and throw some pink tint over the top, crimp your hair and you will be a quarantine goddess. Who knows, maybe you'll love your new look so much that you'll wear it proudly into our post-quarantine world. Until then, experiment and have some fun. This is a unique opportunity that we must harness; find moments of fun, light, and positivity during this dark time.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
