Ladies, Stop Trying To Hide Your Intelligence For A Boy

In a world where "the future is female," I find myself astounded that so many girls are still pretending to be dumb around boys because they think it makes them more attractive to them.

We live in a society full of strong, successful, and beautiful women who are doing such amazing things with their lives and have proven themselves as huge role models for all women, and yet some girls still think the key to a man's heart is by acting as if you don't know anything?

It's not helping you. All pretending to be dumb to attract boys does is hinder the growth of women all around.

A quick look at the history of women and the struggles for equality that we have and still continue to go through should be enough of an indication that being smart is beautiful. Showing off the hard work you've put in at school, in a job, at a hobby, or any other aspect of your life should be treated as a proud accomplishment, and any man you're trying to get involved with should absolutely see it as such.

If they don't, they're probably threatened by or jealous of your success, and honey, you don't want him.

Your girlfriends and your parents should not be the only people supporting your creative and academic endeavors. Especially in a lasting relationship, it is important to feel like the man in your life not only supports your intelligence but is pushing you to achieve even more.

If you pretend to be less intelligent than you are, and you do end up dating the guy, you'll never be able to break out of that cycle of acting like someone you're not. How can you want to be with someone that doesn't even know you?

"Knowledge is power" is quite cliché, but it's the truth. For the sake of all women in the past, present, and future to come, don't be afraid of your intelligence.

Embrace and flaunt it.

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.
