1. Put deodorant on...AT NIGHT

So, if you’re American, then odds are that you wear deodorant (at least we all hope). However, do you notice that sometimes that doesn’t help? Or that you still..smelly smelly? WELL, putting it on at night allows the deodorant to tackle the issue while you’re asleep, slap another coat on before you go out (even after showering) and you should be better off.

2. AIR FRESHENER/INCENSE

You can place a $1 air freshener in your room, bathroom, living room, wherever else, and you’ll have cheap way to increase the general ambience of your living quarters. Because perhaps your house/room doesn’t smell that bad...but an air freshener/incense can only help.

3. PERFUME/COLOGNE

Investing in some cologne or perfume will give you that extra boost of deliciousness for a day of smelling GOOD. Plus, people love complimenting people that smell good...so why not go fishing?

4. STOP SMOKING CIGARETTES

These things are gross and stink, so if you have found yourself using them..I know it’s not easy, but consider trying to stop. Even if it takes months, just trying is worth it. Plus, your breath, clothes, car, house, and anywhere else you normally smoke will smell SOO much better.

5. USE MOUTHWASH

Okay so you brushed your teeth...that’s not enough! You should also use mouthwash and floss. We don’t all do this, but if you want to be FRESH..then maybe start doing it.

6. DRYER SHEETS

Ya know those obnoxiously smelly things that go into the dryer, guess what..they make your clothes smell amazing. You already knew this, but have you been doing it? If your goal is to truly smell better, then it’s worth the extra few bucks to purchase them.

7. SHOWER IN THE MORNING

Showering at night can definitely be easier and more relaxing for bed, so do you. However, if you want to be fresh as can be for the start of your day, I recommend taking the extra time to shower in the morning.

8. WEAR SCENTED LOTION

If you don’t have any allergies or sensitive skin, then try using scented lotion to get that extra whiff of smell good around you. Coconut lotion tends to be a good neutral smell that most people find pleasant.

9. MINTS

Invest in a bowl, put some mints in it, put it right beside your door, and every day when you leave for wherever it is you go, grab one!

Enjoy a 2018 with fresher air, and less nose pinching.

"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hor air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

It's 2018, Time To Stop Judging Women Based Off Of If They Wear Makeup Or Not

If a girl wants to wear make up everyday, then that is great for her. If not, that is equally as great.

It seems like in this day and age, everyone has an opinion towards other people. Now usually, that opinion is not needed nor necessary but this generation always feels the need to insert themselves in other people's lives. What really grinds my gears is when girls post a photo of themselves and random strangers tear these girls apart for either not wearing makeup or wearing too much makeup.

I can easily sum up the point of the article in one sentence: Girls do not go natural or wear makeup to please you!

A girl doesn't wake up one morning and think "maybe I will put makeup on so I can please all the strangers I don't know." If a girl feels comfortable going natural, she will go natural. If a girl wants to put makeup on because SHE likes it, then she will definitely sit in front of her mirror and beautify herself.

When a girl posts a selfie on Twitter or Instagram, you should not feel entitled to comment on the photo saying, "you wear way too much makeup" or "maybe you should try wearing makeup." Not only can that mess with a girl's self-esteem but quite frankly it is also none of your business what a girl does with her own body and her own life.

All girls are beautiful in their own ways; no two girls are the same. Some girls like makeup and some don't. It is as simple as that. You judging a girl based on if she wears makeup or not is honestly childish and I don't understand why you do it. There is no point to you doing it except for you to be negative and try to bring people down.

If girls wanted your opinion, they would ask for it. If their photo comment does not say "should I go natural today?" or "how is my makeup?" then your opinion does not matter and is invalid.

What makes these comments worse is that they normally come from other girls!

Come on ladies! We are supposed to be sticking together, not tearing each other apart. It is one thing when a straight guy comments on the photo but it is a complete bummer when I see girls tearing down other girls.

I just don't understand it. As a girl, why would you want to tear another girl down? Why would you want to tear anybody down? I always think it is a jealousy issue. I feel like jealousy plays a big role in tearing down other girls' self-esteem but if you're jealous of a girl then just comment that? A simple "wow, I'm so jealous that you can be so natural/wear makeup" is way better than "maybe you should wear makeup" because you're jealous that you feel like you can't go natural or "you wear way too much makeup" because you're jealous that you can't pull that look off.

Let me tell you girls something: all of you are beautiful. You may think you need to wear makeup; you don't. You may think that you look ugly when you are all natural; you don't. You may think that your makeup doesn't make you look any better; it might and it might not. As long as you have confidence in who you are, you will be beautiful. Makeup doesn't define whether or not you are beautiful, confidence does.

It is 2018. Judging girls for (not) wearing makeup should not be something anybody does anymore. We, as people, need to see the beauty in others and realize that what we say to people can hurt them. The saying "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all" really gets put into play here.

We should be building girls up, not tearing them down. We should not be asserting our opinions where they are not needed nor wanted. Ultimately, we should not be judging girls when we don't know them or their stories personally. We don't know why they wear makeup or why they don't and for you to judge them about it says more about you than it does about them.
