Going Back to School, Told By 'Harry Potter'
Huffington Post

Here we are again, another summer come and gone. It seems to go so quickly, yet so slowly at the same time. Despite that, I know that most people are dreading the idea of school and class and work again. We go through it every year, but it doesn't seem to get any easier. Summer has been a dream and now it is time to wake up. Here's a look at that cycle of transition from summer vacation to returning to school ... as shown by "Harry Potter."

1. When you're on summer vacation...

2. When someone starts to mention that school is coming back soon...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636073928190181664159252485_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=359&h=d530e0f1bfc1a5e42ecc9f56c1b2f24b455fbb95e7f6afa2742a33917c030382&size=980x&c=2600144981 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636073928190181664159252485_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D359%26h%3Dd530e0f1bfc1a5e42ecc9f56c1b2f24b455fbb95e7f6afa2742a33917c030382%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2600144981%22%7D" expand=1]

3. When you start to realize that school really is coming back within just a few weeks & that your summer is basically over...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636073932510590959-1197305625_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=705&h=b458320e33ceee20c2021527af44b59a47c38af6bc119813054288ff59b5d62d&size=980x&c=2562158354 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636073932510590959-1197305625_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D705%26h%3Db458320e33ceee20c2021527af44b59a47c38af6bc119813054288ff59b5d62d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2562158354%22%7D" expand=1]


4. When you realize that all you did was eat this summer and your "beach bod" is not ready to see all of your classmates, who you haven't seen for 3 months...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F21%2F636073930893148415763490010_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=67&h=b1aa22146a6d08cfe6a03a0a7ab80b92f7b7448b7f30e26301e7b312fb84e863&size=980x&c=2800942053 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F21%252F636073930893148415763490010_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D67%26h%3Db1aa22146a6d08cfe6a03a0a7ab80b92f7b7448b7f30e26301e7b312fb84e863%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2800942053%22%7D" expand=1]

5. When you realize that you didn't do anything on your bucket list this summer, so you desperately try to pack the last few weeks with cool things to do...

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7404

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
