Seasons of life

"I've come to the conclusion that we all go through seasons of life."

Seasons of life

Do you ever wish you just had time to entertain all aspects of life? As a college student, I often feel like I'm slacking, like I'm neglecting parts of my life that constantly need improvement. How in the world am I suppose to be able to maintain a job, college, healthy eating, working out, social life, family time, adulting and still have time to Netflix and chill? I've come to the conclusion that we all go through seasons of life. It is impossible to maintain all the seasons of life at once and you just have to pick an choose which seasons you want to be in?

1. The season of FITNESS

In this season of life, you are fully committed to eating things that are good for your body! If it's not going to fuel or benefit your body, you are not putting it in your mouth! Working out seven days a week has become a beautiful habit that you don't want to interrupt. I myself, have only been this committed once, but I'm working on it! I'm constantly struggling with this season because lets face it, shawty likes cheese burgers and naps!

2. The season of TRAVEL

Oh, how I wish I could just hang out in this season for a little while longer! Of Course I'm constantly day dreaming about this season, and always planing the next adventure, writing it down on paper and hoping to execute it in the near future. Unfortunately, school bells ring, class is in session and your bank account looks worse than Miley Cyrus during her "We Can't Stop" party season.

3. The season of PARTIES

A lot of people look down on this season of life, but if I myself skipped out on this season, I wouldn't have met some of the greatest friend or experienced some of the BEST memories! In this season, I made some of the worst decisions but thats shaped me into the woman I am today, and I wouldn't trade that for the world! Being in college and getting invited to a new party every weekend is the highlight of your life in this season! You're constantly texting people, asking them which party they're going to and wondering which party is better, the frat house or billy joes back yard bon fire. (Coming from the southern girl, choose the bonfire! You're less likely to get roofed and more likely to have a good time! Besides you'll be more socially accepted at the bon fire than an the frat house!)

5. The season of the HOMEBODY

Oh how this is one of my favorite seasons! NETFLIX AND CHILL!! Holla! This season has to take place when your work load and your studies are at a minimum so you can maximize your time binge watching Shamelss or OITNB. Hey, just because your in this season of life, doesn't mean you're socially awkward or have no friends. It just means that you're drained from all the other seasons of life and need a time out!

6. The season of ROMANCE

Ugh. This season is the best season, but also the worst. In my opinion, its the most time consuming. Having to constantly think of someone else; their feelings, thoughts and emotions, can be quiet tiering. Once this season of my life comes to an end,(because lets face it I'm going to end up an old cat lady) I don't want to see it again for a solid 6 months! I'm the type of person who gives my all in a relationship so I'm just about ready for the homebody season after this one!

7. The season of devotion

This is the most intrinsic rewarding season of them all! Giving to others selfishly and devoting your time to the good Lord is so fulfilling. I believe we all struggle with this one the most, partially because we get discouraged with our faith and partially because we get so consumed with life that we forget to stop and than the man above for providing us with even the simplest of things. This season is the only one I try to maintain a constant in my life! Not only from a christian standpoint but being a good citizen consist of devoting your time to the less fortunate. In this season you can only walk away with positivity, so enjoy it!

8. The season of ADULTING

Ahh the inevitable adulting stage! There comes a time in your life when the party and romance start to slow down and you just want to focus on yourself and your career, and thats okay! You're constantly worried about building your credit score, the best deals at SAMs and how to get ahead on your finances for next month. Its scary and sometimes overwhelming. This is currently the season I'm in! I'm avoiding the bar and chasing crazy dreams that seam nearly impossible. This is new territory and I'm not sure how long this season lasts, but I'm excited to finally be here!

Every season is crutial to molding you into the person you are suppose to become! No matter what season you may be in, love it, embrace it, and don't regret it, because you never know when you'll get to see that season again!

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

I don't need to feel bad about myself because of who I follow on social media.


Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
