I Am My Own 'Sugar Daddy' And That's The Ultimate BDE

Like, get this: I am an independent woman who can afford to spoil herself.

I Am My Own 'Sugar Daddy' And That's The Ultimate BDE

My best gal pal was telling me all about the new job she just scored. The location was pretty, but the pay was even prettier for it to be just part-time. We geeked out over it together because she really did deserve it.

"Wait," my eyes got so big when the realization hit me. "You are your own sugar daddy!"

Just months before, when I supported her in denouncing the male population, I came up with an accurate life motto for her: "I am my own mans." And, it became our go-to line whenever she would have to deal with another annoying member of that species. We hyped each other up because who needs boys? (Yes, I have a boyfriend. Yes, I still hate boys. We exist.)

I was joking about needing a sugar daddy to provide some financial assistance (being a broke college student is not the life that I dreamed of for myself). She laughed before calling me out on my not-so-healthy spending habits but still managing to praise for spoiling myself, "You bought a coat in two different colors and reload your Starbs card without giving it a second thought."

First of all, yes, she was 100 percent right! But, guess what? I love giving myself what I know I deserve.

I love treating myself to Starbs on the daily. I love having extra money to buy what my heart desires. I love knowing that I work hard for my money. I love being an independent woman.

The feeling of having the means to provide for yourself is so satisfying. You do not need to worry about being a burden; you will not be relying on someone else. It totally okay to accept help if needed, but, when you know you can do things for yourself, it just gives you the best high.

Being an independent college girl is underrated when it should be a big deal. Girls do not get enough credit for all the hard work that they do.

When my friend made me realize that I do not need someone else for monetary support, I felt a sense of pride in myself. My new life motto is I am my own sugar daddy.

I grind for the bread. I put time and effort into what I do. I enjoy doing what I do. I am thankful for the opportunities that I have been given. I would not be able to afford to treat myself otherwise.

Remembering how spoiled I used to be that some people did not think I would be capable of ever standing on my own, I laugh at the thought of it now. I did not think I would end up here either, but here I am!

And, I am so proud of me.

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.
