Look At The Bright Side

In life, being optimistic can be hard. Why be positive when negativity is so much easier? In a society where school shootings, suicides, and hatred exists, it's easy to lose sight of all the good our society does indeed have.

Instead of being weak and letting those negative thoughts intrude, be strong to let yourself have peace of mind.

Enter your day with the intention of of granting anyone whom you may interact with, with prosperity and happiness.

Make everyone important in your life feel like they are enough and that there is something special within them.

To be optimistic is to make your optimism come true. Look at the world with hope. Even when it's gloomy, look at the day as if it sunny.

Get rid of the intrusive thoughts and think only the finest thoughts. Expect the best and you will receive it.

Look at life with color. It is bright and beautiful and here for you.

Being optimistic can be mistaken as narcissistic. Do not let that happen. Be just as happy about others successes as you would be your own.

The past is the past, pay attention to the greater things coming for you in the future.

Smile. Head up and smile. Smile at yourself and others.

Think only about you and how to make you the best you so you have no time to denounce others.

Be happy. Too happy to let trouble effect you.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
