You Won't Find Yourself In A Number Of Likes

How to be the best you.

You Won't Find Yourself In A Number Of Likes
Adriana Gil

In today's society, we are all caught up in trying to fit in and making sure people think about us a certain way. We want to catch people's attention and we want people to know about us and our every move. We are losing human interaction and becoming consumed by the media. Most people are so caught up on how many likes they are getting or who to hang out with for the clout, that they become nothing of themselves and just more of the same.

Screw the clout. Some of the most amazing people I've ever met, I've met while being myself. I didn't have to act a certain way or dress a certain way to "fit" in. We all just "fit" together without having to try. We didn't expect anything out of each other or ask for changes, we just accepted the people we were. Just being yourself is the best way to be, because you're not faking it. Faking it takes away from who you are, slowly consuming you into something you're not. When you become less of yourself and more of the same of what's around you, you begin to lose your worth. You lose the uniqueness you could be showing the world. You're depriving the world of something new and beautiful. You're dimming your own light for the pleasure of others.

If you are the purest version of yourself there can be, then you'll find genuine people to compliment your life all while being yourself. You find happiness inside yourself and you conform the world around you instead of conforming to it.

Be yourself. Be the version of you you've always wanted to be. Attract the vibes that are best for you, instead of pretending to be something you're not, for vibes that don't satisfy you. Don't worry about what others think or how many likes you're getting. As long as you are being you, you will find sufficient love inside of yourself and all around you.

So set aside the time to find yourself, and stop trying to find someone else to be. Be you.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
