The lives of celebrities have, and are currently being effected by the media. Today with the popularity of reality T.V. and gossip networks, the media has an enormous impact on the rise and fall of a celebrity. The way a common man views a celebrity, by which whom they’ve never met, is completely up to how the media portrays them. The media coverage of a celebrity can extremely shape and mold the type of person they are perceived to be. Because of this idea, many celebrities are misrepresented by the media and seem to lash out in a negative way. On the contrary, many celebrities take advantage of the media’s power and use it as an opportunity to stand out in order to gain more fame and fortune. The power of the media creates a strong identity for a celebrity that is recognized not only by an audience, but by the celebrity as well.

Celebrity information is extremely valuable and easily accessible, which attracts a lot of mediums. Celebrities impact on society creates dynamic and long lasting stories that all mediums can take advantage of. To an audience, the star or celebrity is not just a desired object, but also an intimate doorway for connecting people. There is a large audience of people, especially in America, who genuinely care and want to know everything about a celebrity's day to day life. The media understands that there is a high demand for celebrity exposure. Television shows, newspapers, magazines, and websites all spend a lot of money and coverage time in order to satisfy the wants of all the celebrity demanding audiences.

Fame is an extremely powerful and dangerous aspect of one’s life if they are ever able to obtain it. The media understands that in many cultures today, celebrity based news is the most profitable and desirable content on the market. Due to this fact, media corporations send out paparazzi that go to extreme efforts in order to invade and inhibit the lives of everyday people who are desired by the public. Because the media has such an impact on these newly famous people’s lives, it is hard for celebrities to learn how to adapt to a new world that only few people ever get to experience. Celebrities have been shown to act out in many different ways, proving that the media has a direct influence on the lives of the celebrities, as it pushes them to change their lifestyles in order to maintain a steady income and a strong mental stability.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
