Loving Yourself Is All About That Bass

Meghan Trainor’s catchy song has me toe tapping and singing out loud just about anywhere I am.

Loving Yourself Is All About That Bass

At last, a song about loving yourself, even if you’re not a twig. Don’t get me started on the video because I’m obsessed with it too!

As a 21-year-old woman, it’s always nice to hear a song like, “All About That Bass” especially while walking around Miami’s campus. We all know Miami has a certain stereotype when it comes to women and it’s a never-ending battle to look fabulous all the time. This song says you don’t need to look like you're about to enter a beauty pageant at any moment. 

Here are some lyrics that I picked out to remind myself on a daily basis that I’m beautiful. So ladies, sit down, listen to the song, and love yourself!

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two, but I can shake it, shake it, like I'm supposed to do   

I haven’t been a size two since I was like in 7th grade, and I am perfectly content with that. I used to worry about my body and my weight a lot more when I first got to college, but now as a senior, I am more concerned with embracing the way I look and being proud of it. I have short, stocky legs and a big booty, but like Meghan says, I can shake it, shake it like I’m supposed to do (if you’re interested in my moves, find me at 90's night).    

I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop. We know that sh*t ain't real C'mon now, make it stop   

We have all seen the super, duper skinny women with thigh gaps in every magazine we open, and now we’re asking ourselves, “Is that REALLY what they look like?” I’m so over fantasizing about having a body like the models in the magazines because for all we know, a large part of it is fake and Photoshopped! I would rather see a “plus” size real model than a teeny tiny artificial model.   

You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll. So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along   

Like I already said, forget about making your body absolutely flawless and embrace who you are. Most importantly, don’t let anyone ever tell you that you need to change the way you look. If somebody tells you that you need to lose weight or stop eating multiple slices of Will’s Pizza caked in Parmesan, tell them to MOVE ALONG.         

Every inch of you is perfect, from the bottom to the top   

YOU’RE PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!!! From head to toe, from bottom to top, and don’t ever forget it, ladies.   

I'm all about that bass. 'Bout that bass, no treble   

Bass is round. Treble is tall and skinny. Therefore, Meghan Trainor is saying that she’s all about being round and loving her life and who she is, rather than being tall and skinny.

So to all my lady friends out there reading this: Go bump this song in your car, in your bedroom, request it at the bars, and scream the words at the top of your lungs! You’re all beautiful. All you have to do is believe it!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
