Life is a mess during young-adulthood, but it is a beautiful mess.

It's Okay To Not Have Life Figured Out Yet

As young adults, it’s easy to fall into a stage of uneasiness because we don’t have our lives figured out yet. We forget that we are still young and we still have a lot of trials and errors to be made before we find what best suits us in life. There are so many trials and errors to be made in this early stage of adulthood and it is completely normal to not be sure on which path to take.

In today’s society, we are so wrapped up in various social media which are controlled by young platforms around the same age as us and we tend to compare our success to theirs. It’s becoming an everyday habit of asking ourselves what it is that we’re doing wrong and what things are we lacking that is holding us back from being popular and wealthy like them.

We so often see those people earning a living through social media and other big platforms. I️ consider circumstance and luck as the only two factors that separate us from them. There is nothing wrong with being young and lost, and just because we aren’t where we want to be in life yet doesn’t mean we are deemed unsuccessful.

Notice how I said “yet.” There is plenty of time for us to grow, venture through life, make connections, and build ourselves up into the people we want to be. Each and every one of us moves at their own pace in life and we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others.

Focusing on your own individual strengths and weaknesses is the only way to find yourself. Trust the process of discovering what you’re destined to be and trust the process of reaching your full level of potential.

Being young is all about living. It’s our time to figure out life and all it has to offer. It’s our time to make mistakes just to learn and grow from them.

Remember that life shapes you into who you are and one day you will be shaped into a successful and prosperous person who can lead a glamorous and intriguing lifestyle just like the 20 year-olds we see on Instagram and YouTube.

Embrace the present as well as the future and enjoy all that life has to offer while growing up and taking on the world in your own way. Pursue an education or take another route that best suites whats best for you.

As long as you believe in yourself and support yourself throughout this process of young-adulthood, everything will fall into place when the time is right.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
