Halsey Is An Icon Of Our Time And She Doesn't Deserve The Hate She Gets

Halsey is a badass on more than one level.

Halsey Is An Icon Of Our Time And She Doesn't Deserve The Hate She Gets

Halsey. You know the name. You know the voice and the endless hit songs. Halsey is an icon of our time, even if people don't want to accept it. It seems to me that people are eager to pile on the negativity when it comes to Halsey. Anything she does, people are quick with their rebuttals and comments of disapproval. I never understand this. Halsey struggles with many things, yet still decides to give her all in whatever she is doing.

Halsey is a badass on more than one level. She suffers from endometriosis. This is a disorder in which a tissue that normally lines within the uterus, grows on the outside. This disorder can be debilitating. Yet, Halsey performs with severe pain. She even once gave a performance while she was having a miscarriage, but she didn't know it. Try to think if you would continue giving a performance while going through something like that.

Halsey is a fighter for the empowerment of women, people of color, and the LGBT+ community. Nightmare is her latest single and it talks about body dysphoria issues and standing up as yourself against people who don't want you to be who you are. Halsey is a mixed woman. She stands behind all people of color and fights for their empowerment. She uses her platform to speak out against injustices of all kinds of people.

Also, Halsey is the first western artist to have a feature on a BTS album. She went out of her way to work with a Korean pop group because she knows her platform would give them more traction in the US, and she feels they deserve all the attention in the world.

A lot of people feel they are entitled to have their opinion on Halsey's personal life. They feel like what she does in private is also meant for their eyes. This happens with a lot of celebrities. The reason people dislike Halsey is because of things she said in 2012 when she was 18 years old. They hate her for doing, and saying, the exact same things they did. These people are hypocrites, and that's just a fact.

Halsey is an iconic woman. She battles many things in her every day life, yet continues to perform, write, and meet fans. She stands up for injustices against any innocent person. And she has an amazing talent. For once, we need to cut her some slack and let Halsey grow into the person she is meant to be. We need to let her become the icon she was born to be.

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.
