Body Shaming Is So "Uncool"

How would you like it if I sat there and shamed you for your body?

Body Shaming Is So "Uncool"

" Body shaming is not just about beauty. When we limit what is allowed to be called beautiful, wealso limit who is allowed to feel confident, empowered, important, sexy, brave, and proud."

I never understood why body shaming was a "cool" thing to do or at least people thought it was cool to do. Body shaming is a large reason why women in todays society feel they can not wear what they want, be who they want, and succeed the way the way they want to. Being skinny, a little on the heavy side or over weight shouldn't concern anyone other than yourself! You should be able to walk out of your house in the morning and felt simply beautiful!

I must shed some light on a recent body shaming incident which sent alot of social media into a frenzy of mixed emotions! This past sunday Lady Gaga blessed us with her absolutely amazing performance at Superbowl 51! Need I remind you she looked BEAUTIFUL!!!!! But of course as always theres that one person who had to take to social media to show us that she had the slightest bit of flab hanging over her shorts. Excuse you but if you think that, she is fat at all maybe you should go to the eye doctor because you have no idea what you were looking at!

First of all you have to take into consideration she is wearing tight shorts! I know when i wear tight clothing my stomach hangs over likes theres no tomorrow! Lady gaga is all about self love and if she loves the way she looks then why should you even care?

People, with pure intentions of insulting someone, constantly throw around “her body is so flat,” and “He’s fat, that makes him so ugly,” and “you need to lose weight.” Nobody chooses the body they have. Everyone is born into that body without a choice. As Lady Gaga herself says " We were born this way". If someone is healthy then it should not matter what they look like to anyone but their own.

One day hopefully soon I'd like to see the stop to body shaming. Instead compliment others on how good they look no matter what they look like. Stop putting peolple down and making them unhappy! It starts with you! Make a change!

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.
