At Manchester Pride, Ariana Grande Proves Her Strength Once Again

After breaking off her engagement, losing her ex-boyfriend (and close friend), and surviving a terrorist attack at her own concert, Ariana Grande has every reason to be broken and lost. However, she has proved to be the exact opposite.

Opening 2019 with multiple hit singles and now a chart-topping album, Grande has proved to be one of the strongest in the industry. She has received endless criticism but has yet to fall to the level that her criticizers attempt to push her too. Now, as if she needed to prove her strength anymore, it has been announced that she will be the headliner at the 2019 Manchester Pride event.

For most artists, this would not be a big deal, but after the year Grande had — and this being the exact city she survived a terrorist attack in — she couldn't be making a bolder statement. However, no good thing comes without some type of backlash.

According to many reports, the ticket prices of the event have nearly doubled and people are blaming this on Grande's appearance. Many acknowledge her bravery and thank her for her support, but then go on to accuse her of exploiting the event for her own personal gain.

However, as always, Grande handled the chatter with grace and respect as seen in the response below.

She captioned the response, "I saw many people discussing this and wanted to chime in...hope that's okay." Her understanding and patience with the harshness of social media are mature beyond her years and she continues to prove it over and over again.

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.
