The Struggles of Being a Bottle Blonde

The struggles of being a brunette faking her way to being a blonde can make anyone want to give up the Rapunzel lifestyle. We strive for Britney Spears blonde, but sometimes land among the brassy clouds. Here are some problems every bottle blonde faces.

1. Damaged hair.
There is no denying that my hair dies a little with every foil, but I just can't give up my golden locks.

Do my black roots give away that I am hardcore faking my way through life?

3. Purple shampoo.
This stuff is the best cure for brassy locks, but it smells like chemicals and is the reason my showers take an extra 10 minutes.

4. Dark eyebrows.
Even though I love my arch and eyebrow pencil, my dark eyebrows don't exactly scream "I'm a natural blonde."

5. Emptying my bank account on my hair.
Obviously it's worth it to feel like a Blonde Goddess, but beauty doesn't come cheap.

6. Getting called out for being a fake.
Alright, I am aware this is not my natural look, but I think we can all agree I look a lot better this way.

7. Brass.
I'd much rather be sassy than brassy, my friends.

8. Winter
My hair suffers from a lack of Vitamin D while the sun is hibernating during the cold months. You could say seasonal depression hits my hair pretty hard.

9. Running out of detangler.
hat damaged hair is not easy to brush through.

10. Everyone assuming your IQ went down.
Elle Woods clearly proved the dumb-blonde stereotype to be wrong, but some people still did not learn their lesson. Hair color does not determine intelligence.

11. Facing the inevitable.
One day, I will have to accept the fact that my hair has been through too much. On that sad, sad day, I will be forced to return to my natural hair color; all the while knowing that what my blonde hair and I had was real and beautiful.

These struggles may be annoying, but the satisfaction of being a blondie make it all worth while. I wouldn't give up my light locks for all of the free detangler in the world.

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.
