5 Tips To Having An Aesthetically Pleasing Social Media Feed

Instagram is no longer just about posting, nowadays people post for their feeds. For a beginner looking at amazing feeds can make doing the same for your feed seem daunting and impossible, but once you know all the tricks it is super easy! Hopefully this article will give you the foundation you need to make your feed amazing.

Pick a theme

Choosing a theme helps you stay disciplined on what to post and make your overall feed come together. Your feed can vary from being a color, a certain filter or mood i.e. happy, funky, mellow. It is completely up to you on how you want it to look. I like to change my feed based on the seasons. during the spring and summer I post brighter and colorful photos and in the fall and winter I post darker photos.

Use an editing app

While all photos do not require editing, doing so makes it easier to create a theme if all your photos have the same filter. Editing apps also keep your photos looking posh and gives you creative freedom. I recommend using VSCO because it is free and has an assortment of filters and tools to make your photos look perfect.

Organize your photos before you post them

It can be difficult to mentally visualize how a photo may effect your feed or how a group of photos will come together, so using apps to organize your photos allows you to physically visualize this. I recommend using the app UNUM because it is synchronized with your Instagram account so do not have to manually do it on the app. UNUM also allows you to switch photos around and this makes organizing them easier.

Switch up your themes


If you find yourself getting bored with your current theme or your pictures no longer suit a theme it is okay to change the theme. In fact, I believe changing your theme makes your feed more interesting. When changing it you can either switch right away or you can post 3 similar photos that can act as a barrier between the differing themes.

Do not compare your feed to others 


It is okay to use other feeds as a reference, but do not compare your feed to others. Everyone is unique in their own way and eventually you will find what works best for your feed, based on yourself not someone else. I have found when I tried to copy or compare my feed to others it was not authentic, but when I began doing my own thing the results were amazing.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
