10 Places I HAVE To See In My Lifetime

You should, too.

10 Places I HAVE To See In My Lifetime

I've been fortunate enough to be able to go all around the country, even outside, throughout my life and it's been one of my favorite things. A lot of people enjoy traveling and once you go out once, you just start itching to continue to explore. There's seven continents and hundreds of countries to see, so why not?

1. Santorini, Greece

The minute that I saw a picture of here for the first time, I knew that I had to travel there. All of the "Mamma Mia" hype this year also added to the longing of traveling to Greece.

2. Costa Rica

You could put me anywhere in the entire country and I would be perfectly happy. From the capital to beaches and forests, I would be living my best life.

3. Barcelona, Spain

Packed full of culture, probably amazing food, and a million things to do, Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in all of Europe and a top spot on my list.

4. Victoria Falls, Zambia & Zimbabwe

Nestled at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, it is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Described as " The Smoke That Thunders" I can only imagine the awe.

5. Florence, Italy

This historical city is so incredibly breathtaking just by scrolling through different photos. My heart, and stomach, will be so incredibly full.

6. Tokyo, Japan

I don't think that I'll have a minute of boredom in this constantly moving city. From the historic temples to the brightly lit night sky by skyscrapers, it'll be a place to remember.

7. Australia

I've never really had any city in particular that really stood out to me in Australia, but there are so many different mesmerizing ones that I'm sure I'd be just fine in any (or all) of them.

8. Bangkok, Thailand

The capital of Thailand is filled with temples, markets, and so much more; there are an endless amount of ways to fill whatever my heart desires.

9. Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

The world's tallest free standing mountain can take up to nine days to climb, but it's questionable whether or not I'll make the trek all the way to the top.

10. Buenos Aires, Argentina

The city that boasts being the birthplace of the Tango, the home of some of the most passionate football fans, and overflowing character is definitely calling my name. Being the wine capital of the world also helps.

Now this list definitely doesn't just stop at 10, but you have to start somewhere right?

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
