Remeber That Challenging Times Are Temporary

Remember who is there for you and who is just there to ONLY tell you that everything is going to be okay.


I know times are difficult right now; I know you're not in the position that you wish to be in right now. But, just remember that it is only temporary. There is a reason why certain things that are bad refuse to last. That reason is because bad things are not meant to stick around forever.

As much as you think that it is, it's not.

I promise that things will look up, just keep working hard and understand that something good is going to come your way. It may not be today or tomorrow, but soon. I also know that waiting is also challenging. It is not the most exciting thing in the world but I promise that it is worth it.

There is no such thing as being in a bad situation forever. Why do you think some people praise the current situation that they are in? That is because they were once in the situation that you are currently dealing with right now. Feeling so hopeless and lost is normal. Don't feel ashamed of trying to find who you are, we're still on that journey.

You never truly truly know who you are, but you certainly find your purpose. It may not be right away, but just like that it, it will come... Your purpose will be right there waiting for you. Also remember who is there for you and who is just there to ONLY tell you that everything is going to be okay. If someone is truly meant to stay in your life, that means that they have seen you struggle and are willing to guide you continuously. Always remember that those who are still there for you are STILL here for a reason.

I'm very happy that I surround myself with individuals who only want the best for me. There may have been some bumpy roads to this current state, but there will be plenty more. This is only the beginning. For those of you that can relate, hang on; we're on the same ride together. Things are not perfect now for a reason. It means that bigger and better things are coming. We may not expect it now... But it's there. Let's keep preparing for it.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
