Horoscopes: Real or Fake?

Horoscopes: Real or Fake?

There may be some truth behind them.

Every day, when I have time, I always read Cosmo on Snapchat. Every Monday the writers post horoscopes for the week, and I always check mine. I don't really believe in the whole horoscope thing, but I am curious as to see what my week COULD be like. Anyways, the other day my friend and I were talking about things that happened over the weekend and she mentioned that her horoscope said similar things to what actually happened. Naturally, I became curious and checked my own horoscope for the past week and realized that it was ON POINT. I was so shocked.

There were things that were said that could be related to specific things that had happened that weekend. I know some people are really against this kind of stuff, but you have to admit that there is always a little bit of the horoscope that you can relate back to something that has happened in your life, and that's extremely concerning.


I was kind of freaked out for a second because it made me think that maybe I should really take into account what my horoscope says every week. There is something I find so fascinating about horoscopes. Even though I know better than to believe everything they say, but it does make me question that a little when the horoscope ends up being completely true. I've decided now that I am going to try a little experiment over the next few weeks.

At the beginning of every week I am going to look at my horoscope and make sure I save it to my phone, and at the end of every week I am going to look back at it to see if anything that the horoscope said ended up being true or not. I'm really curious about the whole astrology and horoscope thing. I don't really understand it and I think that's why it's so fascinating. I want to know the method behind a horoscope, like how does whoever writes these come to the conclusion that a Gemini (or whatever star sign you are) should look out for these certain things in a week? I've been to a palm reader before and she could tell that I was a little skeptical about it going in, but I found that this random person who knew nothing about me actually said things that were true to my life. How is that even possible? How do they do it?



I really want to get a full psychic reading just to see how accurate it would be, also sometimes I feel like that could clear my head a little, even though I know it might be nonsense. However, there are real people out there that actually believe they have some sort of sixth sense, which is so creepy. It's not like "That's So Raven," like these people can talk to the dead and creepy stuff like that. I am just wondering how they do it?

Things I brought to college I didn't know would be a lifesaver. 

The top 5 things I brought to college I didn't know would be so useful and helpful throughout my first year,

A Trunk

Having a trunk is such a useful purchase! It has so many jobs in my dorm room. I can lock my valuables in it, use it as a step stool, have extra seating for guests when they come in and it can also be used as a table! It's also a cute decoration.

Hats

A blessing in disguise. 50% of the time I wear a hat when my hair isn't doing what it is supposed to do. It also adds a little something extra to your outfit!


Fuzzy socks

They're honestly a saving grace! Going to school in such a cold climate, having fuzzy sicks makes everything better. Putting these on while walking around campus or even sitting in your dorm can make any day a little better and more comfortable.

Hamper with wheels

Where I attend college, the laundry room is in the basement and there is no elevator. So having a hamper with wheels has made transporting laundry so much easier.

To The Celebrities Who Didn't Wear Black To The Golden Globes

In a sea of black, red will shine through.

The Golden Globes were aired this past. If you didn't notice, Hollywood decided to coordinate their color dresses but some celebrities stuck out from the crowd like sore thumbs. The event was meant to advocate for sexual harassment and sexual assault in the entertainment industry and hoped that by making a statement with color, the message would be heard worldwide that women are no longer remaining silent when oppressed by powerful misogynists.

Maybe some missed the memo and decided to roll with it anyway, or they simply chose to remain completely separate from this highly politicized issue. Either way, the time and place for individuality may not have been a place dedicated to activism.

Blanca Blanco and Barbara Meier were among the few women who chose to wear red to the awards ceremony. People had some interesting things to say about it, too:

Some may have responded in rather funny ways, but the root of this issue is anything but humorous. These women made their statements as to why they chose not to dress in black, but people are not accepting these responses as valid.

Blanca Blanco simply responded, “I love red,” which not only refuses to address the actual issue of failure to support, but it does little to really explain her choice. If you ask a football player who refuses to kneel during the anthem why they do it, I’m sure their response wouldn’t be, “I like standing.” Every choice means something, and one can venture a guess that choices made by people of high fame are almost inherently political.

As entertainers and icons, it is important to exercise your voice and be heard and stand up for issues that impact the majority of people. To wear red when women supporting sexual harassment and assault victims are wearing black is not only disrespectful to the cause, it essentially states to these women that what they are advocating for is not worth supporting, or worse, is not worth acknowledging at all.
