But First, Love Yourself

No better you than the you that you are.

But First, Love Yourself

It can be easy to forget to love yourself. You get caught up in impressing the people around you and pretending to be someone who you are not. In the process, you lose your true self. You lose the awesome, unique, cool person who you were made to be. That should not happen; your life would be so much easier if you started to appreciate and love your current self.

Forget about impressing people and trying to look cool. Without even trying hard to fit in, you are naturally awesome and phenomenal. Stop trying to get people to like you. If they do not like you, then those are the people who should not be in your life. For real though, who could not appreciate someone as awesome as you? You cannot please everyone; so be yourself. The most powerful thing to be in this world is your true genuine self and confident in your skin.

Here are some ways and tips to love yourself:

Dress the way YOU want to.

If you love what you wear, you will automatically feel great. Wearing a nice outfit boosts your confidence and happiness. Nothing makes me feel better than sporting a beautiful outfit. Also, happiness attracts positivity. If you are truly confident and happy, others will notice. Good, happy people attract true, genuine people.

Write yourself inspiring quotes on your desk or vanity.

Seeing these quotes will help you to motivate yourself and encourage you to be your best self. They will also remind you to be fierce and to never stop working towards your goals because you are a #girlboss.

Treat Yourself with coffee.

Coffee makes your mood 100x better and can give you a great start to the day or a nice boost in the afternoon. Also, treating yourself to little things reminds you of your hard work and that you deserve a little treat.

Remind yourself that you are worth it.

There is no better you than the you that you are. You deserve to be happy and to accept yourself. Sometimes we simply need to remind ourselves of our individuality.

It can be difficult to implement this routine of self-love, but that does not mean that you should not do it. Loving yourself is not about showing off or trying to be someone you are not; it is truly about being yourself and loving the way you are. “The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.” – Walt Disney

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
