Célia: Friends for Life

Meet Célia:

This is our personal hairdresser at Holger. From fishtail braids to double dutch braids, she's your girl. This 22-year-old French student has stolen our hearts with her kindness. From making an AMAZING rainbow cake for Nancy's birthday to disapproving our self-depreciating jokes, Célia is always there to lift up anyone's mood and make you feel special. HOWEVER, do not be fooled, this Parisian is also 100% diva and attitude when necessary. You should see her hair flip! She parts her hair to the side and flips it with a single whip of the head, then she raises a single eyebrow and gives you the death glare. #VictoriaSecretModel? It is so awesome when she does that, but also terrifying.

One of my favorite things about Célia is that she is always my party buddy when we have papers to write, we come home super early together and it is awesome! I can always depend on her to come home with me at a decent time. She encourages me to ride my bike and is always keeping an eye out for me when we ride together. One time she stopped and waited for me to find my balance when getting on my bike and I took so long, the rest of the group left without us. They didn't even notice that I'd fallen back in the group, except for Célia. The best part? She was sooooo nice about the situation. I felt so embarrassed to be holding back bike traffic and at the same time so infuriated with my inability to get back on my bike! Célia, however, was cool, calm and collective for me. I remember her just saying, "Ana, it's okay! Just take your time, nobody cares. I can wait for you!" Ahhh that was so sweet.

My favorite Célia moment, however, came when we were hanging out outside one cold winter night. She was smoking her cigarette when all of a sudden she broke out into the cutest dance I have ever witnessed. I started laughing, prompting an explanation from her. Smiling back at me she told me that she has a secret dance she likes to do randomly but only her closest friends have seen it, and now that I had seen it, I was one of her closest friends. I was so overwhelmed by the pure joy of having her declare me a close friend. It dawned on me just how close we all were in such a short period of time.

Célia, you too are one of my closest friends, and you will be seated in the Holger table at my wedding some day. I cannot wait to come see you in Paris and have you in Georgia. I love you soooo much!

Unfortunately, the time is here. It is officially the spring semester, and you know what that means: lots and lots of studying. If you are in the same situation I am, then you are probably doing your 3rd semester of online/hybrid school. Not being at school or not attending classes in person definitely makes learning and studying a lot harder. Because I know this struggle all too well, I put together a list of study tips to hopefully help us all succeed a little more this semester.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn't sure how to write this article.

In the past, I've written about the lies we tell ourselves. I've written about how thoughts can be destructive, how they can have power over who we are.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
