A Letter From The Girl You See Through

Dear Mr. You,

I know that we have our differences, and we actually have two completely different upbringings, but I feel like you're the only one who understands me. When I talk to you, I feel comfortable, and you make me feel like people actually listen to the words coming out of my mouth. You're also the most understanding person that I have ever met.

I like listening to you go on about the things that you love. I may not understand them, but the way you get excited is captivating. You don't know how much I love the sparkle in your eyes when I can see that you are in your element. You could make any person change how they feel about your passions just by talking. Honestly, I think you could tell anyone anything and they would believe you. Your tone of voice is enthusiastic and comforting, which can sometimes be conflicting.

When we interact, I often misread the signals. Deep down, I know you see right through me. But in the moment I feel like it's just you and me. You bring out the best in me, I'm confident and secure with who I am. I didn't know that a whole other person could bring out such strong feelings in me, but that person is you.

My feelings are confusing, because while you seem to get me so well, you may not get my feelings. You make me happy to be alive, but you also make me anxious. When I'm around you, I am aware of how I look, how I talk, how I sit, how I exist. My existence will never be worthy to coexist with yours. Partially because I can't even see it happening. I wouldn't be mad if you didn't either, because we don't make sense.

You're passionate for the world and want to explore it all. But I'm excited about new discoveries, to be comfortable with my feet on the ground. My dreams don't fly as high as yours. That's okay too, you broke all limits set in front of you. I admire that the most about you. I also admire how you can manage to keep your composure. Wrinkles in your plans don't seem to phase you, and you can easily adapt to change. I usually never back down from a challenge, but the standards you have seem impossible to reach. They seem impossible because I'm intimidated by the way you handle yourself. I'm scared of the way you seem to know what you're doing, even when you can be out of your element (which I should add, isn't very often).

I'm writing this because you might be able to read in between the lines. Telling you how I feel wouldn't make a difference, because, at the end of the day, we are two very different people who are both going to do amazing things; just separately.

You inspire me with the way you move. I admire your charm, confidence, and quirks. I know this doesn't mean much coming from me, but this is the hardest thing I've ever had to write.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

COVID-19 is real people, do your part to protect yourself and others.

Ilana Stein

With the ever-changing reality of our world due to COVID-19, there has been one constant throughout these past unforeseen months, masks. Ever since coronavirus hit the ground running in the US, the CDC has been recommending social distancing and mask-wearing to stop the rapid spread.

Many people have been great about adhering to these policies, mandates, and suggested uses, but others, not so much.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.
