Don't Judge Me For My Tattoos

Tattoos are art and shouldn't be treated otherwise.

Don't Judge Me For My Tattoos

Don't judge me by my tattoos. I'm more than the ink in my skin.

It's 2016 and people are still judging others by their choice of getting tattoos.

Well, guess what? You can kiss my ass. Along with every other tatted person.

Tattoos are a great way to express yourself. Tattoos can say a lot about a person. They often have some kind of hidden meaning. Sometimes they are just impulsive tattoos, which I learned can be very fun and exciting.

Our body is rightfully ours. We should be able to do what we please. If you feel the need to ink our skin with words or designs, then so be it. Tattoos are like body decorators. Tattoos give people character. I often find myself remembering someone for their tattoos rather than their name. (I know that makes me sound like a crappy person, but sometimes people just have really cool tats).

In a perfect world, people treat others how they wish to be treated. There is no judging on the looks of a person, but of their character. We should all worry about the character of a person rather than if they have tattoos or not. Employers should look for the more qualified person, not the person with the less amount of visible tattoos.

What makes someone with tattoos less qualified for a job? What's the big deal if someone sees an appropriate tattoo on my wrist? Would it make me any less of a good doctor or teacher?

The answer is obvious. Of course, it wouldn't. Society needs to learn to accept tattoos. It's a part of our culture and it's here to stay.

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.
