Dear low self - esteemed girl,

I know you think that the more skin you show or the more makeup you cake on, it's going to make you more attractive, right? That's where you're wrong.

As coming from a girl who absolutely hates every possible thing about herself, I can tell you that it doesn't make me feel any better about myself.

I mean, sure, makeup is so great, it does make me happy to wear it, and showing a little more skin could come off as being confident... or trashy, whichever way you look at it.

I know that you might want to have the "perfect" body and have others admire it, aspiring to have that same look, but is it really worth it? I can assure it's not.

Okay, so I know I don't have the best body in the world or the prettiest of faces, but I don't think that doesn't make me a horrible person.

When it comes to loving my body and who I am, it can be quite hard; the are all these standards that we have to supposedly meet up to when it comes to our clothes, weight, looks, the way our makeup should be done, and even then so, it always somehow comes out wrong to one person or another.

So, what? You think that just because you don't wear the most expensive clothes and have the best name brand makeup, that you're not good enough? Again, WRONG!

I can easily say that being a girl with a low self-esteem is one of the worst ways to live. Now, I mean, I can tell we're getting better at loving ourselves, including myself, which is amazing.

I won't hit you with the whole cliché thing of "we're all beautiful in our own way," because who really, honestly, believes that? I know I don't.

In the simplicity of it all; it's. not. easy.

I know that there are many of us girls out there trying to keep their chins high and their smiles bigger, because that's what matters the most.

And if you don't believe me when I say that personality is key; it really is and that is nothing short of the truth.

For as much as I can say I don't particularly like about my appearance, I can say that my personality is one of my best traits that I have.

Sure, it might not win over the hearts that I so desire it to, but that's because those hearts didn't matter in the first place.

I guess all I'm trying to say here is that beauty isn't based on the opinions of others and how they see you; it matters how you see you, and you should see yourself as a princess who is nothing but the best and deserves the world and more.

"So keep your head up, princess, your crown is falling."

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.
