Let's get real about how it feels to be the girl of the moment
Start writing a post

Don't' be that girl that is someone's sometimes. The girl who answers the text or snapchat instantly after not hearing from him for a month. Don't be the girl willing to run over to his house when he has never come to see you. Don't be the girl doing his homework, buying him coffee and so on when he never does anything for you.

If you've found yourself in any of these instances you need to check yourself and reevaluate your self-worth.

Society has become this place where if you don't have a certain something in your life your viewed as less. In high school, it was all about the perfect car or the perfect prom date. If you didn't have either you were cast off in an island of misfits, the people that do not fit into the perfect lives society has dreamed up. If in college you don't have a constant hook up or a boyfriend your weird and people wonder what's wrong with you. Or at least that's the impression I've been getting.

Society has made girls turn into people that think they need constant attention or attraction to the opposite sex. If a guy isn't paying attention to you at a frat party or out at the bars something must be wrong with the girl. Why can't anything ever be wrong with the guy? Why doesn't he have the balls to come up to the girl?

This brings me to the point where we have come to except it to be okay to just be that guys sometime, maybe hook up. Standards have been thrown out the window and we take what we can get.

What happened to the mentality that its a privilege for the guy to talk to the girl. He's lucky she's giving him the time of day.

I recently read a quote that is really important to understand and to truly take to heart

"Independent females are so undervalued, She doesn't need you, she wants you. She is going to do her own thing with or without you"

Ladies, we do not need guys. This mindset society has set forth that makes us lower our standards it not okay!

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
