By Suing Missguided, You're Accomplishing What Exactly

Kim, sweetie, let me enlighten you real quick.

Alright, Kim, first things first, I've been cracking down on you and your family for a few months now, but that's because I'm not only going to be a fan, I am going to be your harshest critic, so if I see something that you do or say that I don't agree with, best believe I'm going to speak on it. You've been circulating on my feed a lot in 2019 (mind you, we just started the year). You're a businesswoman and you support brands and companies and I admire that about you; however, for you to sue Missguided, a notable fast fashion brand that provides knock off leisure is a bit much, even for you. You didn't sue Fashion Nova for recreating the dress you wore to Kylie's 21st birthday and plenty of other instances where your looks have been copied. You even turned down $1M because a knock-off brand reached out to you so you could advertise their company, even though it was a knock-off of Yeezy's by Kanye; either way, you didn't sue those companies.

I bet it gets annoying to have big companies that let you wear their outfits before they drop the rest of the line or if something is made exclusively for you that you want smaller brands to not capitalize on that, but again Kim, you're a businesswoman and this is all business. Suing one fast fashion brand for $10M is absolutely ridiculous and it won't scare the others away, just saying. I expected you to sue other sites that "misappropriate" your name and likeness when you do it all the time. Remember the baby hair fiasco? How about the Fulani braids? No? Then here's all of the information you need to know what I'm talking about. Not to mention, this tweet sums up how ridiculous your lawsuit is.

I'm not going to advise you on what to do, but let me be blunt (as if I already haven't been): you are not the holy creator of everything and you do not own everything. Get off your high horse and let people live and work as you do. And next time you want to drag someone for appropriating your name and likeness, ask your glam team not to appropriate someone else's likeness, okay?

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.
