7 Book Recommendations For The Aspiring #GirlBoss

A 'Girlboss' is a woman who has identified her worth and her ability to be successful and can do it on her own with her self-motivated mindset. We all have a personal list of dreams and goals that we hope to one day, achieve in our lives.

Whether it be landing that job that someone your age could only dream of or be figuring out how to break those awkward elevator silences with your boss, you are going to impress yourself with how much of a 'Girlboss' you are.

Girlbosses themselves wrote these seven books. They have got the world figured out and they did that by figuring themselves out. Once you know you can achieve anything, you will.

1. "#Girlboss" by Sophia Amoruso


It only fits that the first recommendation on this list is by the 'Girlboss' queen herself, Sophia Amoruso. From being homeless to enduring through a hernia and selling vintage clothing on Ebay, Amoruso started her very own empire, Nasty Gal.

2. "Staying Strong" by Demi Lovato

With these 365 pages, Demi Lovato takes you on her journey through all of her inner demons that she has faced throughout life thus far. As a celebrity, your life can appear to be perfect. But with this book, she shows you that it's okay not to be okay and that self-help is the best tool for happiness and success.

3. 'Scrappy Little Nobody' by Anna Kendrick

"Scrappy Little Nobody," written by Anna Kendrick, is a very real, open and honest memoir into her personal life. Every experience that she has had in life has shaped her into the person she is today. She is unapologetically herself and encourages you to do the same.

4. "Unfiltered" by Lily Collins

Lily Collins, known for her roles in The Blind Side and To The Bone, opens up about things that every girl needs to hear, such as relationships, body image and much more. Growing up can be terrifying, especially as you experience different things without understanding them. Knowing this, Collins wrote the book to guide younger women as she wishes she had been.

5. "The Devil Wears Prada" by Lauren Weisberger

More widely known for its motion picture, "The Devil Wears Prada" is a novel about an aspiring journalist that lands a job in the fashion industry which challenges her morals and influences decisions that she usually wouldn't make. This experience transforms herself into a confident woman that now knows her worth and lives for herself.

6. "Strong Looks Better Naked" by Khloe Kardashian

Living her life fully in the spotlight, Khloe talks about the importance of self-love and her journey through good health and how it has helped her grow as a person. The media captures everything, whether it be good or bad and keeping your mental and physical strength through it all is how you become the ultimate 'Girlboss' of your life.

7. "Speak" by Laurie Halse Anderson

After a life-altering event, it's easier just to shut yourself out and keep quiet. In this novel, Laurie Halse Anderson reveals why it's essential to utilize your voice to speak up for yourself and take control of your own life. A 'Girlboss' cannot let anyone shut her out because she has too much to offer to stay silent.

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.

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.
