Social Media Can Either Make Or Break Your Life, But It's ultimately Your Choice Which
Becca Tapert

Social media has become one of the largest platforms for individuals to show off their lives, thoughts and ideas. We are constantly refreshing our feed to see what everyone is up to. There are all types of different sites and apps to fulfill our social media needs, and they all have one thing in common: that is the populairty. We are using our words to express our thoughts on Twitter, our status on Facebook, our caption on Instagram and an expression for a Snapchat. Social media has given us a way to share our words with the world.

Our fingers move faster and faster as we type out each and every thought that comes to mind. We find the perfect captions for everlasting memories, the words to describe the things in our lives that are worth sharing. We are able to connect with friends, family and people from all over the world with a click of a button. Social media has forever changed the way that we communicate. Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook are popular sites among the hundreds of others. People use these sites to document their daily lives for all of their following on these sites. It has become the most efficient way to reach people all at once. Our lives have been altered since social media came about.

The writing done on social media is very serious. Anything that is put into this world forever without the possibility of it ever being erased is important. We often think of the different ways to get across our thoughts and feelings to those who matter most, those who usually follow us on social media. There is a certain etiquette to social as there is with all styles of writing. If the wrong thing is said, there could be serious consequences. People words can hurt and especially if they have the kind of audience that is inevitable on social media. A single post, photo or tweet can ruin someone's life. Internet safety is taught all over America today because some people are on social media for all the wrong reasons.

However, I have to believe that something this large and impactful is used for good. New language has been brought about through it, people land jobs and other opportunities. Social media is a great revelation in the literature world. It brings about something interesting and exciting for young people. We just have to be sure to use it wisely. The purpose is not to tear us down. Social media has become one of the largest platforms for individuals to show off their lives, thoughts and ideas through literacy. Our lives are constantly changing, and our pages reflect that growth. It can be used as a tool of something to always look back on and remember certain parts of our lives.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
