From The Girl Who Can't Believe Senior Year Is Around the Corner

So you’re telling me I’m about to be a senior?

So you’re telling me I’m about to be a senior?

It’s the Wednesday of finals week and all I have is 2 finals left before I’m classified as a senior in college. I guess my first question is how? And my second is, where in the world did time go?

How am I about to enter my senior year of college and then the real world? How am I old enough? When did I become old enough for this? I can definitely say this is about to be a very emotional year.

I guess first thing’s first, I don’t think I’m ready. I don’t want to grow up, but I do. It’s such a weird feeling. I’m over the 8 am finals but I can’t wait to have a job that I’ve gone to school for so long for and actually start to live out my dream. But how did time fly by so fast for that time to almost be here?

I guess the saying “time flies when you’re having fun,” is so incredibly true. I can thank my friends for that one. I have met some of the best people in my life here. They encourage me to be the best I can be, to chase my dreams, not to worry about the little things but to celebrate the big, we have each other backs through thick and thin and I will forever be grateful for these friendships and they will be the hardest to leave.

I’m so excited to see where everyone ends up and can’t wait for the trips to visit with one another, but leaving Oxford and all the memories we have made here will be really rough.

Junior year, all in all, has taught me a lot of things. How to be happy, to cherish every moment, especially those quick runs to Sonic with friends, the late nights of studying for hours at the library and getting delusional, the random nights of going out in t-shirts and having one of the best nights, watching the sunset from the top of the parking garage, cherish those times, let it all sink in, because those will be the times you miss the most.

This year also brought me a lot of opportunity with internships, jobs, and getting more involved. This has been the best year, and I can’t wait to see what all senior year is going to bring, other than a lot of happy and sad tears!

I’m sitting here thinking, when did this all happen? How did it become such a reality so quickly? I know I still have my senior year, and that’s a year full of lasts. Last first day of undergrad, last home football game, last time to register for classes, last sorority events, but I just have to remind myself of all the “firsts” to come with it too.

First ‘big girl’ job to apply for, getting that first “real” job, being a real adult for the first time, all of these I’m so excited for.

It’s just so bittersweet.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
