Personalize Your Social Media Feed For What You Desire

Your social media feed could be a motivational tool if you know how to use it.

Personalize Your Social Media Feed For What You Desire

People talk mad sh*t about social media and how negative it is. However, that's not ALL social media can be. Individually, we choose who we follow and we customize what our feeds will look like. I'm a huge fan of unfollowing people if their content doesn't make you happy. I want to go on my phone and feel inspired by what's on my feed.

There's no shame in following positive or motivational accounts either. If it is something that will make you happy to follow, then f*cking do it! It is YOUR social media and it should reflect what you want to do.

For example, I have an Instagram account for my photography and I follow similar photography accounts. On my personal Instagram, I follow select people from high school and my friends and family. These two accounts serve very different purposes and the accounts I choose to follow on each account accurately represent what the account really is.

Another example would be following fitness accounts if you want to start working out more. Seeing it on your feed might encourage you to actually go and DO IT. Your social media feed could be a motivational tool if you know how to use it.

Social media doesn't need to bum you out; make sure to unfollow anyone if their posts consistently make you unhappy or upset (or work on why they make you unhappy/upset) and follow accounts that encourage you to be your best self. Social media can be a tool to encourage you.

Sometimes, people take social media breaks and re-evaluate the role that social media plays in their life. I've had many friends do this and re-consider how much time they spent on social media, in addition to the way they used social media. Use it to your advantage, not your disadvantage. Remember that YOU are in charge of your social media feeds and if you're unhappy about what you're seeing, then you need to step it up!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
