Piercings Are BadA$$

Listen if you have a piercing you are automatically a badass!

Piercings Are BadA$$
Olivia Schultz

I was inspired to talk about my favorite piercings and different piercings you can get because I just got my nostril re-pierced for the third time! As of now I have had my first and second holes on my ears, my septum pierced and my nose pierced. There are multiple types of piercings and they are all beautiful don't ever let anyone tell you other wise. Trust me you will be a badass for getting the piercing!

Let's start out with the basics that mainly everyone gets! The different types of ear piercings!

Helix Piercing (Cartilage)

This piercing is a very popular one that we saw almost everyone wearing a few years ago. The big craze with this piercing was the heart shaped jewelry that everyone would wear! 10/10 would recommend! But be careful while its healing that your hair doesn't get caught on it.

Conch Piercing

I love this piercing! It is a subtle and cute piercing that says hey I am adventurous! The conch piercing became popular when it was rumored that it could help with migraines. Though no one knows if this is true or not many people still get them to help with their headaches! 10/10

Industrial Piercing

I love the adventurous jewelry you can wear with the industrial piercing but its a lot. Like the picture above the jewelry takes 4 places to go through! So unless you are willing to be ready for this pain this piercing may not be for you. 5/10

Eyebrow Piercing

Okay lets be honest we have all wanted an eyebrow piercing at some point and time in our lives. The thing with eyebrow piercings is that you have to have the eyebrow for it. But if you can pull it off the way it looks is amazing! 8/10

Nose Ring/ Septum

Above is my two lovely facial piercings I have, my septum and my nose. I think a nose piercing can suit anyone. Unfortunately for a septum to look right your nose has to be a bit symmetrical. But if you can get both of them they look amazing together! Also be prepared for your eyes to water while getting these piercings. When you leave the shop you look like you were crying, I know this from experience. 10/10

Lip Piercings

Snake bites were huge a few years ago but you don't see them as often. I say that if you are brave enough to get your lip pierced well damn do it! 7/10

Tongue Piercing

These are a hit or miss with a lot of people. I like them because it is kind of like a secret piercing but you can still show it off! 6/10

Belly Button

Uh the piercing that everyone famous seems to have. If you want it go get it but be careful that you don't get caught on things! 4/10

There are some other types of piercings in this world like dermal, nipple and genital ones. But those ones are some that people aren't comfortable talking about so I am going to let you form your own opinions on them.

But hey in the mean time go get a needle shoved through you face and get a new piece of jewelry. Or don't. Its up to you!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
