Most of all, I hope you dance.

To The Me I Hope To Be In Three Years
@thetrendytomboy

After turning 22 last month (insert T-Swift lyric here), I've been thinking a lot about my future. Where will it be? What will it be like? How will I get there? I haven't been able to answer any of these questions, not with certainty at least, but I can tell that 25-year-old girl I'll be in three years just a few things I hope she never forgets.

Dear 25 year old me,

I hope that when you look back on your college years, you can't help but smile. We had a good run. A run full of challenges, all-nighters, nights out on the town, and class too, of course. I hope you remember the good times just as clearly as you remember the bad. I hope you laugh a lot, you take chances, and you thank the good Lord for every blessing that comes your way. I hope you remember the people that got you to this point, the people who love you and have supported you - whether they're family or not.

I hope you give, not take, happiness to those around you. I hope you strive to make the world a better place every day. I hope that when your cup runs over, you pour a little into someone else's cup that isn't quite as full. I hope you are just as strong as the things you've experienced have made you. I hope you keep your head up when your world is falling apart. I hope you dance in the rain even when you're in your good shoes.

Most of all, I hope you remember who you are in this crazy mess of a life - a daughter of the one true King.

So, as you take on the rest of your life, I want you to remember just how important the little things are. I want you to remember those nights with friends that you never see anymore. I want you to remember the days you drove across the state just see your mom for a few hours. I want you to remember all of the last minute concerts you went to. I want you to remember the times you stayed in and ordered pizza because everything was just too much.

I want you to remember everything, girl, because without the good and the bad you wouldn't be where you are today.

Don't forget.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6583

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
