5 Serious Issues You'll Only Understand if You Wear Bras

I would trade my literal soul for a bra that did none of these things.

5 Serious Issues You'll Only Understand if You Wear Bras

This one is for all of you with mammary glands that require a little more than a Victoria’s Secret (Un)Dress Code bralette (which, to be fair, are totally cute--just super unrealistic). If you, like me, hate one of the most essential pieces of your wardrobe but know that to forgo it would mean eliciting every kind of unwanted stare in the book, you’ve probably experienced all of these things. So I say to you: stay strong, stand together, and struggle on.

1. When the cup is misshapen.

You probably dried it funny, but this is still one of the greatest injustices bra-wearers everywhere must endure. Whether the cup makes you look like a wanna-be-Madonna or it curls outward right at the top to make sure everyone can see where the bra ends and you begin, a misshapen cup is frustrating to no end.

2. When the strap keeps falling down.

What did I do to deserve this? Why does my bra hate me so? Not only does a wayward strap ruin the perfect outfit, but it’s also super annoying. Either you let it fall and it tickles the top of your arm all day, as if teasing you, or you pull it back up every thirty seconds. And it’s bonus points for the punk strap if the shirt you’re wearing has a fairly small hole for your head, because then the constant pulling up stretches that out, too.

3. When the underwire pops out and stabs you in the heart.

This is actually worse than feeling like you’ve been stabbed in the heart emotionally. Okay...maybe I’m exaggerating a little. But you don’t know pain until your underwire has turned on you. All you have ever done was care for it and keep it closer than anything else and how does it repay you? Attempted murder.

4. When it needs adjusting but refuses to budge.

You can feel that the bra needs a little yanking up and around here and there, to make it easier for you to settle into it, if you know what I mean. But you can’t seem to get your bra to move. Try as you might, she seems determined to stay put. And it’s more bonus points in the fight against your bra if you end up pulling too hard on a bra that won’t budge and you punch yourself in the jaw. I can’t be the only one...right?

5. When it’s literally a cloth and wire contraption made to wrangle and strap down the two softest and most tender body parts you have to the point of constant discomfort.

Truly, enough said.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
