A Lazy Girl's Guide To 3 Cute & Simple Hairstyles

For those days when your natural hair just doesn't cut it.

A Lazy Girl's Guide To 3 Cute & Simple Hairstyles

If you're anything like me, you don't wash your hair every day. There's a void in the week that only dry shampoo can fix, and some days it's still bleak. These hairstyles are perfect for when you're running late to class, work, or just need a change up to your look for that day!

Half-Up "Gymnast" Bun

I call it a gymnast bun because, when I did gymnastics as a child, I always shaped my buns like this.
  1. Brush hair to the top of your head, gather into a ponytail.
  2. Twist the ponytail into a spiral.
  3. Wrap twisted hair around the hair tie.
  4. Play around with the shape of it.
  5. Seal with elastic and bobby pins as needed.

Not-So-French Braids

This braid will definitely keep all your hair away from your face. For a little flare, wear a headband or use scrunchies.
  1. Part your hair wherever feels natural (I part down the middle).
  2. With the pointed end of a wide-tooth comb, brush hair straight down the back of your head, starting from the crown to the ends.
  3. Section hair into 3 equal sections, begin tugging and braiding right above your ear.
  4. Repeat on the other side of your head.
  5. Seal with an elastic, pull at strands for volume.

Pretty Pony

This little trick adds major Ariana Grande vibes to any ponytail.
  1. Part hair down the middle
  2. Section front pieces of hair (about 1/2-1 in.)
  3. Pull the remaining hair into a low or high ponytail (I usually prefer middle/low-ish)
  4. Adjust with bobby pins if needed
  5. Straighten front pieces (optional, but that's what I like to do)

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
