No, I Will Not "Put Some Clothes On"

Social Media is a form of self-expression. I get to choose what I post.

No, I Will Not "Put Some Clothes On"

Recently, I read an article about ladies choice of clothing. The author states that you should not post photos of yourself in revealing clothing. But I would just like to say, I wear what I want. I post what I want. I know there will always be people that look at my decisions with distaste, but it is still my decision. You are correct when you say that you will not be able to avoid all of the girls that post these things on social media. Because people post things they feel comfortable in. Why does that concern you in any way?

You have gone swimming. Maybe at a beach, maybe a pool. And you see girls walk around in bikinis. So why does it matter if a girl posts a picture in a crop top and shorts, or shows a little bit of side boob. It's their body!

But one thing that was stated really got to me. So let me say this. I do expect my boyfriend or girlfriend to accept what I wear. Because as you said, people might hit on me, but how much do you want to bet that that is how things started with me and my significant other. The person getting into the relationship KNOWS that that is how I or any other girls dresses, when they start something. So why is it fair for them to try to get someone to change, after you get together. Guys may hit on me, guys hit on everyone! It's not about what I wear, it's about trust and loyalty. If a guy were to hit on me, I would say I have a boyfriend. No matter what I was wearing. He would not break up with me or any other girl because of the way we dress, and if he did, then that seems slightly shallow.

Everything in today's society is open. You walk down the street and you will see lingerie ads, or girls in bathing suits everywhere. So don't act like you cringe if you see a girl in her bathing as you're scrolling on instagram. The truth is, people can wear and post whatever they'd like. That is exactly what social media is for. That does NOT mean someone is asking for it. That does not mean that they deserve to be talked about. All that it means, is that they had the confidence to post it, and that is admirable in itself. So, to anybody that says "Put some clothes on" How about you focus on yourself. Thank 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.

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.
