Stop Judging, Start Living

You are beautiful, just the way you are.

Stop Judging, Start Living

What is the definition of beauty? Is something that can change day by day? Currently, we live in a distorted society, a society which judges individuals on beauty. How can you judge someone on something that is so difficult to define? There is no one right or wrong answer for the definition of beauty, why is this? Well, because beauty is unique to each individual.

Women struggle with self- image because we are constantly comparing ourselves to other people. Think about it, how many times have you seen another girl walking past you and you thought of everything she has that you don't. You might wish you had her skinny toned legs, her nice clothes, or hair. You want to change yourself to be like her. Imagine it the other way around, if you didn't like the outfit the girl was wearing. You walk past her judging her every move, her every flaw that you think she has. How does judging someone else make you any better? You're still going to look and feel the same way as you do. This constant pressure to be perfect causes self- doubt and insecurities. Stop trying to compare yourself to others and just be yourself. You are beautiful in your own way.

Today’s generation is attached to their cell phones. We allow these tiny devices to control what we do, how we feel, and what we think about ourselves. An inanimate object impacts and influences our daily lives. Even more detrimental it influences how we perceive ourselves. We live in a generation where someones beauty is defined by the number of likes they receive on their selfie Sunday post on Instagram. Once again we need to stop judging one another based off of looks. If you feel confident and want to post your duck face selfie, then you go head and do it. This is your life, you can't let the judgements of others stop you from living your life and doing what you want to do.

We need to remind each other that we are not defined by our outward appearance. You are so much more than the clothes you wear, or how you style your hair. What about the beautiful life you are living? Think about how lucky you are to have a roof to sleep under, food to eat, and air to breathe. Life itself is a gift and every single day is an opportunity to do something great. Go out there and do something positive.

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.

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.
