To The Mean Girls Of The Adult World, Time To Grow Up

It is time to move on and stop continuing to bully those around you.

To The Mean Girls Of The Adult World, Time To Grow Up

Everyone loves the movie "Mean Girls" and how could you not? It is comedic brilliance with quotable lines for almost every situation. At the end of the movie, fortunately, the girls move past their mean ways and become "actual human beings."

However, this is not always the case in real life.

While at a Kesha concert this past weekend (which was absolutely amazing by way), she ended the show with a song from her newest album called "Bastards." I've listened to the album "Rainbow" quite a bit but hearing the songs live made me appreciate the words so much more than I did before. In the song's chorus, she sings,

"Don't let the mean girls take the crown, don't let the scumbags screw you 'round, don't let the bastards take you down."

Although it is a simple set of lines, it really resonated with me. In the past year, I have dealt with an enormous amount of unnecessary drama alongside some of my friends from a certain group of young women that seem to have forgotten to leave the drama and their mean girl ways in high school.

The sad truth is, not everyone leaves behind their bullying ways after graduation and are appalled when others refuse to participate as well. Those that are true bullies find every way they can to continue it into their adult lives. Instead of leaving behind negativity and focusing on making an impact in the world, they resort to childish behavior as a default.

Growing up and moving on is somehow too difficult. Resorting to this behavior is all they have ever known and they believe that life is boring without it.

Bullying has no place in the world, both when you are young and during adulthood.

I can only imagine how torturous it must be to carry such anger and hatred around all the time. It is easy to get sucked back into that world of negativity, but thankfully I have no desire to continue the cycle. I hope you wake up one day and realize the same thing.

I hope that if you have daughters one day that they recognize your toxic behavior, if you are still participating, and rise above it. I also hope they aren't treated the same way by other mean girls just like you.

Choose to leave behind bullying. End the cycle and spread positivity. Today, this world cannot get too much of it.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

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.

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 or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
