10 Bold strides 'The Bold Type' Made For My Editorial Life

For most, "The Bold Type" is just a show. For others, like myself, it is a window into the life of a type of editorial life. Even though the characters deal with many struggles without the show there are many moments when they show their inner female power to overcome and empower.

1. "You are stronger than that." - Jacqueline


Sometimes we all need that one person to support us both in and outside of work.

2. "I can't afford to fail." -Sutton


When you say it over and over, you start to believe in yourself.

3. "You know, life can change in a flash, so...what are we waiting for?" -Jane


From Jane, we can learn to not hesitate on taking leaps in life and to understand that opportunities do not always come to us all the time.

4. "I choose to wear the hijab, It does not oppress me." -Adena


Adena allows people to understand that she is strong and independent and she wants to wear the hijab as a reminder of who she is. Her identity is very strong.

5. "I want to write about bigger things." -Jane


Jane wants to write about hard hitting news and she knows she might have to leave something comfortable to get it. She does not want to stay behind writing about sex and relationships. She knows what she wants and beginning to go after it.

6. "Well, then I guess I'll have to show them a woman defying them." -Kat


Kat is all about pushing boundaries and that is what draws her to making her name known in the world. She is the first black department head in the company and she will not let anyone stand in her way.

7. "I'm going to go for this job in the fashion department with or without your support." -Sutton


From day 1 Sutton has always dreamed to work in fashion but she settled in finances because it was "safer", now she has branched out to her calling and is done waiting for approval from anyone.

8. "You are a modern, millennial woman." -Sutton


We all need that reminder that when all else fails, we have each other and that we are strong, powerful and bold.

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.
