Because why have one when we can have 365?

Make Every Day Feel Like International Women's Day

Does International Women's Day have you feeling empowered and ready to take on the world? Hold on to that feeling. Celebrating your womanhood does not have to only happen once a year, it can happen everyday! Here are just a few of the ways you can celebrate your inner goddess.

1. Wear Whatever You Want Because You Are Strong And Beautiful.

As long as you feel comfortable and confident, you should feel good about showcasing your body in whatever way you choose.

2. Donate To A Cause You Care About.

Examples include Planned Parenthood, Tostan, and Girls Not Brides. However, there is an amazing amount of other worthwhile charities.

3. Have An Open And Honest Discussion About Your Ambition And Goals With Your Friends.

The more we discuss all the incredible things we want to do in life, the more we inspire each other.

4. Have An Open And Honest Discussion About Feminism With Men.

Approach this situation as calmly as possible, like Emma Watson. Sometimes the biggest disconnect is just a lack of understanding.

5. Watch A Movie/Show With A Strong Female Lead.

Netflix has this as a category for a reason! You'll feel inspired and ready to take on the world.

6. Pay A Random Compliment To A Woman.

It may seem small, but when we build each other up, we all feel more empowered.

7. Donate Your Time By Helping At A Women's Shelter.

There are more than you think, and you can volunteer to play with children or serve a meal.

8. Tell Your Female Role Models How Much They Mean To You.

You can do this with flowers or a hand-written letter. Just speak from the heart and let them know all the ways they inspire you.

These are just eight simple ways you can keep every day feeling like International Women's Day. If a man asks you why there's a women's day and not a men's day, avoid ripping their head off and simply explain the importance.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
