Why The Britney Stage Will Always Be Relevant

Don't deny it; almost every girl went through the Britney fan phase. I'm just still in it, and I always will be.

Why The Britney Stage Will Always Be Relevant
Meagan Hoard

I am not ashamed to share that Britney Spears is my home girl. I still have CDs of her early 2000s albums because I love her that much. When I just need some girl power, I could just pull up a Beyonce playlist. But sometimes, I need a sweet escape back to my adolescence; Britney is the girl I need. Here are five times Britney spoke (and speaks) to my soul:

1. "If there's nothing missing in my life, then why do these tears come at night?" -"Lucky"

This song so honestly depicts how we can easily present ourselves as happy to the world, but we know the true condition of our hearts. Things become the most real when no one is around.

2. "I'm Mrs. She's Too Big Now She's Too Thin
(You want a piece of me)" -"Piece of Me"

Although this song is from the perspective of a celebrity, girls everywhere can relate the impossible standards we held to. Some days it feels like no matter what I do, I can't please anyone. Britney feels that, and responds with some sass.

3. "Lollipop- must mistake me, you're a sucker" -"Womanizer"

Mean boys try to play you. But Britney ain't having it, and neither should I.

4. "I’ve had enough; I’m not your property as from today" -"Stronger"

Whether I may find myself in the midst of a bad relationship, or maybe allowing myself to be beaten down for the sake of inclusion, I must remember that nobody else should be able to dictate how I feel about myself. I will always be worth more than the subject of someone's manipulation.

5. "People can take everything away from you, but they can never take away your truth" -"My Prerogative"

No matter who society tries to make us out to be, we all are created uniquely and wonderfully different. In spite of the pressures to conform or the ridicule we may face, no one can ever take away our identity. But we still have to be sure to not allow ourselves to be lost in this crazy world.

So, whoever wants to take me to a Britney concert- let's go.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
