In A World Full Of Kim Kardashians, Be An Audrey Hepburn

"Makeup can only make you pretty on the outside, but it doesn't help if you're ugly on the inside. Unless you eat makeup."

In A World Full Of Kim Kardashians, Be An Audrey Hepburn

One thing anyone should know about me is that I absolutely, positively love Audrey Hepburn. She's not only a fashion icon, but she's also an incredible actress and she was an ambassador for UNICEF. Hepburn had to live with the effects of World War II, as well as the death of her uncle.

The "Breakfast At Tiffany's" star did not have an easy road to becoming the incredible icon she is today. Death, war, and being moved across countries takes a toll on someone, but, she never once let that interfere with her life and overcame all of her battles.

In today's society, we have Kim Kardashian who cries when her diamond earring falls off in the ocean or rises to fame through her father's work in the OJ Simpson trial and the "world famous" sex tape.

Young women and girls look to famous stars, like Kim Kardashian, as a way to live their life. They dress like them, buy their products, use all of the products they endorse, and even go as far as getting plastic surgery to look like them. Having the mindset that if they do everything like the star, they will eventually have a life like theirs.

The role models we need shouldn't endorse lip fillers, shouldn't be famous for how "big their butts are," and certainly shouldn't rise to fame by creating a sex tape.

Role models should have poise They should be known for their contributions to both society, charities, and for how they overcame hardships.

The Kardashians are famous for all of the wrong reasons and are given the spotlight over things that actually matter.

Our society has changed in the sense that women are now getting more respect (which they definitely deserve, we have babies for crying out loud) and are making steps in the business world that we haven't been able to do before. Girls who grow up worshiping the Kardashians, and people like them, might as well be taking five steps back for women in society.

I will say that each Kardashian has built their own brand and have made their own net worth. But, they certainly didn't do it on their own nor do they have the morals that every young girl should have. Such as, not posting your sex tape on the internet.

With all of the steps women have made towards gaining the respect we deserve, we shouldn't allow a reality star to be idolized for her figure and her money.

The world needs more Audrey Hepburn's; women who believe and inspire other young women to accomplish their dreams and be able to overcome their personal battles, with the world or within themselves.

So the next time you flip on the TV and start watching "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," you might want to throw on Netflix instead and watch "Breakfast At Tiffany's," you'll probably learn a lot more about life rather than losing brain cells learning about lip fillers.

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.
