Yes, The Bold Type is the show with the three girls screaming in a subway station; and, yes, it is exactly the show we need.

The world of The Bold Type is populated by fashion, city lights, and effervescent dialogue. But amidst all of the chaos lies the heart of the show: three best friends, all in their mid-twenties, all working through their own struggles. Though the very pink advertisements and Sex and the City comparisons give off the impression that The Bold Type is just 40 minutes of escapism in which women talk about shoes and relationships, it is so much bigger than that.

The Bold Type has tackled topics such as immigration, sexuality, women in politics, the BRCA gene test, and sexual assault with grace and integrity; and in doing so, it has shown us three women who are powerful and unapologetic.

These ladies are bold, but not in their readiness to scream in a subway station without regard to who’s watching.

They’re bold in their vulnerability and willingness to admit they want love.

They’re bold in their ability to acknowledge when they’re wrong and apologize.

They’re bold in their quickness to stand up for one another.

They’re bold in their awareness of what they deserve.

These ladies are bold because they stand up for what they believe in, especially when what they believe in is themselves—which is something we could all try a little more often.

So, in the spirit of this sparkling, relatable, and socially relevant show getting renewed for two more seasons, here are some of the most iconic quotes from season one that is guaranteed to empower you to live your boldest life.


1. When you need to put yourself out there more.

2. When you're feeling stuck....

3. ...But you're caught between doing what's safe and doing what you love.

4. When you're not the best at what you do, but, my god, do you love it.

5. When you have to fake it till you make it.

6. When you realize your worth and hope he does, too.

7. When you don't give yourself enough credit

8. And when you're terrified of letting people down.

9. When you finally hit your breaking point.

10. When you need to realize that life is tough but you are so much tougher.

11. When the guy you thought was attractive turns out to be the actual WORST.

12. And he underestimates you.

13. When there's something you've secretly always wanted to do but never had the guts to try.

14. When you decide to go for the thing that scares you most...

15. ...And it all works out.

16. When the world has absolutely no idea what it's up against.

Here's to living boldly.

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

12 Not-So-Boujee Must Haves For Your First Home/Apartment, If You Want To Actually Survive

Broom > Swiffer. Trust me.

225
views

Whether a college student or just moving into your first home or apartment, here is a list of things you probably didn't know you needed.

1. Shower Curtain Rod. 

In my furnished apartment, I was thinking the past tenant would have left this item. WRONG. Walmart is going to be your best bet for getting this, I went to at least three other stores first, and none of them had it so save yourself time and just go to Walmart.

2. Organizers. 

I was lucky enough to already have one. However, drawer organizers are so important. Not only do they save space for me in my apartment and on my desk, but it acts as my nightstand. Living on the fourth floor of my apartment, the last thing I wanted to do was haul a wooden nightstand up to my room. So get an organizer that has wheels, they usually have colored drawers so they can follow whatever color scheme you have going on.

3. Wall Decorations. 

I'm usually not one worried about decorating, but the walls will feel empty without even a cheap poster from Walmart or family photos. Something about decorating just really makes it feel more like home, than if you had just an empty room.

4. Oil Diffuser.

This was new to me. However, not only does my oil diffuser give a little extra light when it's on, but my room always smells amazing now, even if the rest of the house smells like food. Scentsy pots work too, but with the oil diffusers there's less mess and you can use oils similar to DoTerra for health and mood benefits.

5. Tinfoil. 

We all eat food. And let's be honest, college students are lazy and life is so much easier when you can just throw tinfoil on top of your dish and toss it in the fridge. Especially when you're in a hurry. Yes, that's also what Tupperware is for but you also can use it for cooking in the oven.

6. Rugs. 

Most kitchens are hardwood or tile of some sort, having a rug in front of the entrance and in front of the sink are essential to creating less mess to clean. We have a lot of guests in our apartment and since we don't have carpet anywhere but our rooms, it is tough to ask for shoes off so having a rug at the front door can cut down the amount of dirt tracked in.

7. Lamps. 

Lighting can be limited in rooms so it's nice to bring some sort of extra lighting. Either a stand up lamp or just a desk lamp can make a huge difference in the lighting of your room.

8. Dry Shampoo. 

This is less of a need for your home and more of a need for you. I have recently jumped on the dry shampoo trend and it's a life-saver. If you have a long night of studying or wake up late and don't have time to wash your hair, it's a great fix and easy way to keep from looking like you are losing your mind.

9. Extension Cords. 

If you didn't figure this out in a dorm, you are now. Outlets can be in inconvenient places, and as a college student, you have to have space to plug in a laptop, printer, phone, lamps, and anything else that you need to plug in. Extension cords and power strips will solve that problem.

10. Broom. 

Yes, a broom. Not a swiffer. Sadly, if you have more dirt than dust, a swiffer will do you no good. You can get a cheap broom at just about any store that carries any cleaning supplies.

11. Paper Towel Holder. 

I mean you could go without but it does make things more convenient. Also looks nicer than just having a roll of paper towels sitting on the counter.

12. Cooking Oil. 

Super easy to forget, but used more often than you think. Cooking oil is used for so many things, and if you have a kitchen, make sure you have it. Nothing is worse than having a meal planned and finding out you don't have cooking oil.
