A College Senior's Final First Week Thoughts As Told By Joe Goldberg

Hello there. Who are you? Based on the course load, spring semester. Your first week of classes end early, yet fill me with stress. You have different sides to you. I want to experience all of those sides. You like to make the seniors feel nostalgic, reminding us all that this blissfully strained existence on a college campus is quickly coming to an end. Do you want to help me or hurt me? I have to know. Good thing I have all semester to figure you out. Your mediocre meals and vending machine Starbucks triple-shots fuel my motivation. Yet your thirsty Thursdays allow me to experience a short-lived sense of ferocious freedom. Regardless of how hungover I will be Friday morning, I still have to attend class. It's like you have me on a leash. I guess I'll have to deal with it for now. I'll see you in the morning, You.

Looking at how busy your last semester schedule is like...

So with all that's said and done, you very well might be the best thing to ever happen to me. I am infatuated with you. I am obsessed with you. I gotta soak you up before you slip through the cracks of my fingers. Because soon, love, you will be in the past.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
