What Not To Wear This Summer

Start off your morning by looking in the mirror, and instead of being your own worst critic, give yourself a compliment.

What Not To Wear This Summer

Summer is right around the corner for many, and has already began for some. As the temperatures come up, and stress comes down, it's time to break out those summer clothes.

But what should you wear, you may ask yourself?

Wear what you want!

So many people say "I wish I was smaller so I could wear that type of thing." or "I wish I had the confidence to pull that off"

I'm going to let you in on a secret. You can pull off anything you'd like. What you wear should be based on what you feel comfortable in, not what others say is "okay" to wear.

Unfortunately, there are always going to be the judgmental people out there. Every time I am out in a crop top, or shorts, I know there are the few people that will look at me like I'm from another planet, but so what?! I have the confidence to wear it, or at least give off the presence that I am confident.

So to the girl that has a little bit of a stomach, wear that crop top, and be proud.

To the person who is scared to show their scars, wear the short sleeves, and shorts. Be comfortable, because you are a warrior.

To the person who won't wear their favorite dress, because your scared of being judged, wear it, and wear it with pride.

The people who know me often say they wish they had my confidence. They say I'm fearless, and don't care what others think.

Do you want to know my secret?

I'm not that confident.

I may seem like it, but it's because I wear what I want and do what I'd like. I still second guess it all, but it is actually quite liberating. So do me a favor, even if it's just once

Stop worrying about what others think!

You won't regret it. If you think to yourself "what if they don't like my outfit" Pull yourself back from that thought. You picked that shirt because you liked it, and I promise that you rock it better than you could ever realize. Keep your head held high, and strut your stuff this summer.

Start off your morning by looking in the mirror, and instead of being your own worse critic, give yourself a compliment. It's hard, but it helps.

This summer, no matter your size, your race, your social standing, wear what you want. Do what you feel best doing.

Fuck society's standards. This summer is yours.

Make the best of it.

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.
