2017 went by in the blink of an eye and it's crazy to think we already just started another year. For those of you that continuously write "2016", or some other past year on your papers, this is going to be especially hard for you. For everyone else, here is your chance to start off the year right, surrounded by the people and things you love. It's exciting and refreshing to have a clean slate, and hopefully, we'll make the most of it!

It's the start of something new

Happy New Year!!! 2018 is here and is going to be the best year yet, right? With everyone making resolutions, there will definitely be some new habits, thoughts, ideas, and actions carried out this year. It's undoubtedly the start of something new, and hopefully better!

It's out with the old, & in with the new

Coming upon the New Year, thinking about the things you want to say goodbye to in 2018 and about the things you want to keep 2018 is essential. Goodbye iTunes gift cards, and hello Apple Music.

Now or never

New Years is a fresh start, and is a time when you feel like you can conquer anything and everything. Now is the time to do it, and don't wait, or it'll likely never happen.

Breaking Free

Although getting over bad habits is hard, there is no better time to break them then the new year. Leave them in the past, and better yourself in the present. Break free from negative stereotypes, hurtful words, and the status quo, you're better than that.

I gotta go my own way

There are toxic people and things in everyone's lives. Sorry to that "friend" who takes and takes and takes and never gives, or the pair of shoes that always gives me blisters, but you're getting left in 2017. There's no room for you in my life anymore.

Getcha head in the game

Maybe first semester was a little rocky for you. Maybe you're just getting back into the scholastic mindset after a long summer, or it was tailgate season and school simply just came second. Whatever the reason, now is the time to buckle down and really focus on school, and make this the semester that you do your absolute best.

Bop to the Top

.....of your game. Like I said, maybe last semester was slow. In order for this semester to be the absolute best, you want to be on top of the world in all respects: health, school, friendships, partying, sleep, family, relationships, fitness, or even being a better person.

Everyday

For bad habits to be gone for good, the good ones need to replace them every, single, day. Yeah, maybe after those good habits are established then you can have a break every now and then. However, right now the good ones need to be put into place everyday for them to work.

Fabulous

Above all, you want this year to be fabulous, and it will be. Whatever you decide to do and whoever you decide to be, it's never too late. Make 2018 the best year yet and have it be absolutely fabulous.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
