Everything You Need To Know About Miley Cyrus' Visit To George Mason University

You wake up and think about the millions of things you have to do. After all, it is midterm season, so tensions are high. As if impending tests and projects were not enough, the upcoming election is definitely not helping, as many fear what the future holds. Since people are having such a hard time deciding who to vote for, both candidates have increased their campaigning efforts, especially in Virginia. This is because Virginia is likely a swing state, which means that the two major political parties have almost equal support across the state. As such, college campuses can have a big impact on the election results in the state, especially since younger people like college students, are notoriously known for not voting.

In an attempt to remedy this, Miley Cyrus made an appearance on campus Saturday, October 22nd around 3:00 pm to campaign for Hillary Clinton and encourage students to come out and vote. So you may be wondering…

Why Mason?

My guess is because Mason is the largest university within the Commonwealth of Virginia. So it would make sense that she would come here since Virginia could be a swing state, and college students tend to not vote. So if they do vote, it could make a big difference. By coming to Mason, she could reach a not only the student body of the largest university within the Commonwealth of Virginia, but also anyone who follows Mason students on social media.

How did they choose which building she would visit?

If you have any form of social media, it’s no secret that she graced Piedmont 4th with her presence. But how did they get so lucky? While waiting outside to see Miley, I was chatting with one of the police officers on crowd control, and he said they chose Piedmont 4th because many of the students who live there are affiliated with the GMU Democrats or were actively involved the Hillary campaign.

How did she spend her time while at Mason?

There are many reports of Miley actually taking a decent amount of time to speak, take pictures with, and just hang out with the residents of Piedmont 4th. She even played some Mario Kart with a couple of residents at one point. Everyone who spoke with her only has positive things to say about her, and the general consensus was that she was very friendly and a down to earth person.

It’s awesome that Miley took time out of her busy schedule to come and visit Mason to make a statement about the importance of voting in this election. Now it is our job to actually do something about it.

The takeaway from her appearance is simple; go out and vote. People have no right to complain about who is in office, or the things that happen in the upcoming years if they do not exercise their voting power. So, make sure to do your duty and vote!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
