The textbook definition of clout is to have the ability to influence others with ease. When a person has clout their opinion carries weight, people care what they have to say – they have the sauce. Such can be said for any individual who possesses a pair of these beauties:

Designed by Christian Roth and popularized by Kurt Cobain in the 90s, these vintage Series 6558 shades have been plucked from obscurity and are back with a vengeance. For people who are familiar with the glasses, they were more than likely introduced to them by music artists like Kali Uchis, Migos, Lil Yatchy, Tyler, The Creator, etc. But according to Know Your Meme, the person who’s actually responsible for the resurgence of Roth’s eyewear is Denzel Curry.

In a YouTube video that he uploaded on June 1st, Curry, while wearing a pair of glasses similar to the Series 6558s, tells an anecdote that establishes them as “clout goggles”:

In the video, Curry lets the young woman that confused his clout goggles for mere mortal lenses and the rest of the world know what’s up. By coining a phrase that has resulted in a $500 pair of glasses being simply known as clout goggles, Curry further legitimizes that he indeed does have clout.

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.

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.
