I'm sure I'm not the only girl who's noticed the scrunchie trend. One day you're seeing a cute scrunchie on a friend's wrist, the next it's on every girl's wrist, hair, in-stores, online — even your grandma's wearing it (literally — scrunchies are retro).

I swear, in a blink of an eye, the trend was everywhere. And I'm not complaining. As a matter of fact, I've converted to the scrunchie lifestyle myself. It's the only form of hair tie I use. I refuse to go back to those ugly black hair ties.

If you haven't converted yet, here are 7 reasons why you need to head to your nearest Walmart and stock up.

    1. NO DAMAGE.

    You hear that, ladies and long-haired gents? No. Damage.

    2. No harsh indents.

    Kind of goes in line with the "no damage" perk, but there's also no harsh indents. You know, the ones you get after having your hair up for an extensive period of time? Yeah, don't worry about that anymore. Scrunchies are indentless!

    3. They're cute and aesthetically pleasing.

    'Nuff said.

    4. They're collectable. 

    I use to never know what to say when people asked me if I collected anything--now I do.

    5. Easier to find than black hair ties.

    How many times have you lost your favorite black hair tie?

    6. Won't break.

    Doesn't it suck when your hairband snaps? These are reliable.

    7. Makes for a cute bracelet.

    OK, come on. Admit it. It looks cute on your wrist, doesn't it?

    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?

    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.

    3665

    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.

    With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

    The Gift Of Basketball

    The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

    I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

    Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

    Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

    In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
