This is very out of character for me.

15 Very Real Thoughts I Had While Applying To Be On 'The Bachelor'

The other night, I was with my friends watching the newest episode of "Bachelor in Paradise," when I got the idea of applying for "The Bachelor." Now, I had never seen an episode of any of those types of TV shows. It just never interested me, and I would rather use Tinder or Bumble than a nation-wide event to find a date (even though neither app has worked out for me either).

So, with some encouragement from my friends, I filled out the online application. Here were my exact thoughts while I did so...

1. "Why am I doing this?'

2. "I'm definitely not going to be picked."

3. "Do I want to be picked?"

4. "No, this is just for a joke."

5. "Then why am I taking it so seriously?"

6. "Do I really need to include my height and weight?"

7. "This is basically a body contest."

8. "This is stupid."

9. "This will definitely make my autobiography interesting."

10. "For an introvert, I can be really extroverted."

11. "I would much rather fight other girls for a guy than have guys fight for me."

12. "Should my reason for applying be serious or funny?"

13. "Why not both?"

14. "I hope the person that reads my application gets a kick out of this."

15. "This is not the worst idea of my life."

Needless to say, I will not be finishing the rest of the application process, which includes a 10 to 15-minute video of myself and more pictures. Filling out this initial part of the application was quite enough for me.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
