Can We Stop Talking About Beyonce's Pregnancy?

I get it, she's pregnant. Lots of other women are pregnant too, but do we care about them?

Can We Stop Talking About Beyonce's Pregnancy?

I used to be a Beyonce fan when she first started out as a solo artist back in 2003. "Crazy in Love" was my jam, and Beyonce herself was a great performer. But the more famous she became, the more my opinion on her changed.

Hearing Beyonce in Lady Gaga's "Telephone" was probably the last time I would ever enjoy listening to the singer. When she came out with "Single Ladies" a few months later, I sort of lost interest. I'm not saying I flat-out disliked Beyonce, but it seemed to me that she was now more interested in making money than making music for her loyal fan base.

I'm sure that a majority of the people reading this are members of the "Bey Hive," but hear me out: don't you miss the days when Beyonce was in Destiny's Child and her music videos weren't so over the top? In other words, don't you miss the time when people cared more about Beyonce's voice instead of how she looked?

Don't get me wrong: Beyonce is still beautiful and a great singer, but I feel as though she believes she has to put on a spectacular show all of the time. Whether she's at a basketball game or walking her daughter in the park, Beyonce always appears to be ready to perform.

And to be honest, I think she shouldn't have to worry about what people think of how she looks at this point in her career!

Beyonce is one of the most popular people in the world. She did not have to do a complete photo shoot to announce her pregnancy. She simply could have posted a picture of a pregnancy test that read "Positive" and the internet still would have lost its mind.

Many women today are following suit when announcing their pregnancy. Some couples have done photo shoots of their own, while others perform songs on the internet!

If you ask me, the whole thing is ridiculous!

Discovering that your pregnant is an exciting feeling; telling the world that your pregnant is also exciting.

But your announcement should not have to cost you a fortune.

The best pregnancy announcements have been remarkably simple. One of my favorites is a woman taking a picture of baby boy Nike's next to her husband's own Nike's, with the caption reading, "I'll soon have two men around the house!"

Short and to the point.

This message goes out to women everywhere who want to share some big news with the world, whether it's a pregnancy, engagement, or even a promotion at work: don't think that you need to make a big deal out of telling people what's happened -- just keep it simple! Make the focus about YOU, not about your financial status.

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.
