Advice From One Confident Girl to Another

Learn to love yourself!

Advice From One Confident Girl to Another

Honey, don't sweat it. Go to the gym and lift something heavy, post a dope selfie, and be a sass with class.

You have every right in the world to be confident. You deserve to love yourself. So show yourself some love: do naked yoga then take a lavender-scented bubble bath. Dance like no one is watching. Learn to laugh at yourself instead of being embarrassed. And most of all, learn that you don't owe anyone anything, and you definitely don't have anything to prove.

He's with someone else: Good for him. Remember that things begin and end for a reason, and someone can never make you jealous over something you have already had. You do your thing, boo. You're better off doing you anyway!

If someone is mean to you or talks ugly about you behind your back, learn to let it slide and simply mark another friend off the list that keeps getting shorter and shorter. You don't need those people in your life.

Never feel inadequate, for you have a soul that can move mountains and a fire in your eyes. Someone else's beauty does not take away from yours.

Do not allow bitterness to creep into your heart. It's a nasty disease that can easily ruin you. Find it in you to be happy for people, even if they could never return the favor.

Learn when to fight and when to let go. Unplug from social media and actually be alone with yourself. Do you like the person you have become? If even you don't enjoy your own company, then don't expect anyone else to.

Most importantly, take time out of your day for YOU. Whether that be through the gym, getting your nails done, or reading a book, do something that makes you feel good. Try meditating. If meditation is not your thing, sit in silence for at least five minutes. Listen to the sounds around you and develop a sense of awareness. Through that, you can learn to love yourself a little more.

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.

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.
