This Summer, Dress to Feel Like Yourself

I dress how I like.

This Summer, Dress to Feel Like Yourself
Dress Up

This is a response to the article, "Dressing For Yourself and Not Others, With Confidence and Comfort."

I always like to dress comfy but stylish. I like to dress to feel the best version of myself. Even on my lazy days off. I couldn't care less if people judge about what I wear or not. I only want to please myself. And in opinion, anyone should do the same. People should dress to only please themselves.

When I was a preteen, I wanted to dress to impress my fellow peers. I tried to dress like other girls. But I knew I didn't feel like myself. I thought I would be more popular if I tried to dress what was trendy at that time. But now as a 25 year old, that did not matter anymore. As I grew up, I've learned to not conform to society pressure because I've figured out it doesn't matter and life is too short to worry about the silliest things. I figured that I would be happier to be my authentic self.

For now on, I only dress to impress myself. I like to dress in sundresses, leggings, crop tops, big chunky sweaters, heels, shorts, and sweats of course. I dress how I want, depending if I'm going out or not or how I'm feeling that day.

To anyone reading this, dress to feel like yourself. Do not care if people judge or not. Haters are going to hate. It's your life so live it by wearing what you want. Since it's getting closer summer, you can catch me wearing sundresses, shorts, and crop tops.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
