You're never fully dressed without a smile.

How To Put A Smile On Someone's Face
Rosalind M. Keeley

Smiling is special. It is a way to be friendly and loving towards people. One of my favorite songs from a movie is "You're Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile" from the movie and play "Annie." The song just says how people might look nice on the outside, but the smile is what really completes the outfit. I love the feeling of making someone close to me laugh or smile, but I really feel amazing when I can make strangers and people who I have just met smile and feel appreciated. Everyone deserves to have a reason to smile every day. Even when they are in the depths of despair, everyone should have someone who can make them smile. Here are a few things that you can do to give someone a radiant and beautiful smile during their day!

Give someone a hug.

One of the simplest ways to show a person that you care and without saying it. Tell them, "I love you," or, "I really care about you."

Give them a flower (or a plethora of flowers).

This can say, "I really appreciate you and I think you should have something this pretty in your life." Surprising someone with a random flower is lovely as well!

Give them a pit of puppies.

OK, who doesn't love puppies?! They are furry and look so innocent. A puppy was at school today and everyone who laid eyes on it smiled and even came to pet it. Now, imagine a whole LITTER of puppies surrounding a friend of yours? A no-brainer way to a smile!

Give them a chocolate fountain.

A friend of mine mentioned this one and I totally agreed with her. I probably would skip the smile and just start eating! But in all seriousness, chocolate is the bomb.com and giving your friend some chocolate (a whole fountain) is an awesome idea.

Send them a text that says "good morning" and/or "you're beautiful."

If you have a significant other, sending this to them in the morning will grab their attention and give them a great start to the day (I speak from experience). Even just telling someone that they are beautiful will boost their self-esteem and brighten their day!

Say "good job," and notice their talents/accomplishments.

Taking the time to remember someone's accomplishments or talents means a lot. Even when it is something small, everyone deserves a pat on the back and this could also make someone crack a smile on a bad day.

Snapchat/apps.

Everyone loves a good face-swap or filter on Snapchat. Whatever app you might be using, these could make someone laugh or smile to themselves on a daily basis. You never know what could happen!

Bad dad jokes.


Even though some jokes are really bad and really corny, they never fail for a smile!

Good clothes that fit WELL.

Sometimes it is hard to find clothes that fit a person really well (especially jeans). BUT, when your friend compliments you or genuinely says, "That looks AMAZING on you," you can't help but smile and feel a little bit better about yourself. There is no shame in lookin' smokin' in an outfit.

I feel better when I'm dancin'!

OK, so I see this GIF everywhere, and it still makes me smile! Dancing with people you love and sharing that fun time with them makes memories that last forever!


There are multitudes of ways to shine light on someone's day. They could be as simple as a compliment or something like a pit of puppies or kittens (whichever kind of person you are). So make someone smile today and pass on the love!

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6200

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!
