When Inner You Is Blair Waldorf

Well, inner you is Blair minus the scheming and attitude.

When Inner You Is Blair Waldorf

Almost everyone I know has watched Gossip Girl, or at least has a basic understanding of the characters and plot. One of the main girls in the show is Blair Waldorf; a rich, rather vicious, and seriously well dressed upper east side socialite. While I may not admire most aspects of her personality, she is probably one of the most well dressed female T.V characters of all time. Inner me is totally Blair Waldorf (again, minus the snobby persona) but outer me? Definitely a lowly Brooklyn commoner as Blair would say. Let me just break down for you what it’s like to be someone who adores high class fashion but just doesn’t reflect it, because I definitely know I am not the only one with this very important struggle.

Hair: Blair’s hair is literally flawless 24/7. She wakes up with perfect hair, she goes to bed with perfect hair. She has the most gorgeous brunette locks, and amazing formal up-do’s for special occasions. Or normal occasions. Inner me totally has flawless hair. Outer me? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Therefore, I cut it all off!

Makeup: Blair’s makeup is always on point. Always. She clearly never has messed up eyeliner, her lipstick never smudges, and her complexion is blemish free. I’m actually really good at doing makeup, but again, ain’t nobody got time for that hour-long makeup routine everyday. And every girl understands the massive challenge to get eyeliner even presentable looking most days. And lipstick? Say cheese and it ends up decorating your teeth as well. Blair does not have this struggle.

Clothing: Designer dresses on a daily basis is the life of the fabulous Blair. She can just walk into Barneys, buy a several-thousand-dollar dress, wear it once, and it’s no problem. You rock those designer dresses Queen B. In my dreams, I totally have this capability. Reality: “Oh this is pretty! Oh, it’s $50? Guess I won’t be getting that. Must preserve the dollars.” The struggle is truly real. Outer me is usually working, and therefore adorning the highly fashionable polo and khakis that many jobs require. I shall dream on.

Social Life: Queen B’s social life is bursting at the seams. She is invited to every important party and event, although she is rather lacking in the genuine friends department (I will not be trading that, no thank you). She goes to masquerades, charity balls and dinners. Heck, she even has dinners with royalty- did I mention she almost BECAME a royal. She was basically in a Kate Middleton situation before Kate Middleton. Inner me is a socialite goddess. All the parties I tell you. Outer me? Netflix and moi please and thank you. Okay but really, I definitely have a better friend situation than Miss Blair.

So what DO me and Blair Waldorf truly have in common? Well... we both love cats and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and we're both very intelligent. That's about it. Live on inner Blair-me.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
