Ladies, You Don't Have To Be Put Together All The Time

You don't always have to wear makeup and have your hair done or even wear something other than sweatpants.

If a guy is in public and he's wearing sweatpants and his hair isn't exactly the most presentable, no one questions it.

If a girl is in public and doesn't have it all together, she's lazy and unkempt. Women are expected to have it all together and always look nice but we shouldn't have to. We are just as entitled to lazy days as men are.

Women, especially those that work both inside and outside the home, are held to a higher standard than men and expected to wear full makeup with nice hair and nice clothes all the time. I have news for your world, women lose their minds just like men do and have bad days. I have at least three days a month where I am completely not myself and just want to wear leggings and a big t-shirt and stay in bed.

Bad days can be caused by stress, mental illness, bad situations, and so many more reasons and they aren't limited to men. If anything women have even more reason to be stressed because we deal with the social patriarchy that rules our world and makes it more difficult for us to make strides in our everyday lives. We shouldn't be expected to keep it together all the time on top of everything else going on.

I try my best to get up, eat a good breakfast, get dressed in something nice, and put on makeup and jewelry every day but some days my Nike shorts and t-shirts are too tempting. That one lazy day shouldn't cancel out all those days that I worked hard to look and feel good.

We shouldn't let our society dictate how we have to look every day. If you want to take that lazy day or wear a dress or even get a visible tattoo then go for it. Ladies I can't stress this enough, we do not always have to be put together.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
