Everything needs to revolve around us. Unlike people who turn attention away from them, we need all eyes on us twenty-four seven. While many shy away from being the center of attention, being the center of attention comes naturally to us. Here a few things those are common among attention lovers:

1. We spend a lot of time getting ready.

We love all eyes on us at all times, we take forever to get ready even if it's going to the grocery store.

2. We live for compliments.

We love being noticed and complimented. When someone compliments us, it makes us love being the center of attention even more.

3. We love to be around people.

Being around friends and family makes us super happy, they understand us and our attention-seeking personalities.

4. We are always down for a good time.

We are the party. We come prepared to make the best in every situation.

5. We belong on Gossip Girl.

Every attention lover needs to know the 411 on every situation, even if it doesn't involve them.

6. We are loud.

We talk loud, we want others to hear us. It's in our personality.

7. People think we're dramatic.

Okay, so maybe we are. We over exaggerate things because we want people to pay attention.

8. We live for meeting new people and new experiences.

There is no such thing as an awkward first conversation. We take full interest in meeting and conversing with new people.

9. We love to make people laugh.

Cracking jokes and making fun of people in a joking manner is what we do; we love the attention people give us for being funny.

10. Sometimes we seem conceded.

What can we say? We love attention and will do anything for it.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Yes, 'Dress For Success' Applies To College Students, Too

We all know it's hard to get up for that 8 a.m., and dressing nice may not be a priority but I feel it's important and a way to bring more success to your life.

I accepted the challenge and put purpose into every outfit I chose over the past week to solidify my reasons for writing the article. I've also taken pictures of each day so that I'm out in the open and no one can call me out. Although I am just a freshman in college this year, I had previously been adopting these mindsets before in high school. My day feels so much more approachable when I am looking good.

First and foremost, putting purpose into the clothes and accessories you choose to wear reflect your personality. Style has been a form of personal expression for decades, and it is a way to show who you are on the inside. By choosing pieces and styling them together, outfit choices can have more meaning to you and reflect your character.

If you dress in ways that give you the confidence you can go about your day in a more positive attitude. Something I often tell myself is "although everything seems like it's going wrong, at least I look good." Youtuber Jessica Quirk explains similar points in her Youtube video "Look good, feel good." By looking nicer, it makes you feel more capable of tackling the day. If I were dressed in leggings and a sweatshirt, I might be more easily persuaded to take a nap, instead of doing some much-needed homework. I am more productive due to the confidence I have gained from looking nicer and feeling less "comfy."

Another advantage of putting more effort into outfits chosen to wear to classes would be that compliments are given non-stop. It personally lifts my mood to have someone tell me they like my shirt and makes my day a little better. It's also possible that you might make a first impression with someone. By outwardly making an expression of your personality, others who don't know you can draw conclusions about your character. Even with people that you do know, like professors and peers, it makes an impression. They will give more respect to someone who puts effort into the way that they dress instead of someone who looks like they just rolled out of bed.

The philosophy of "dress for success" has been around for a while, and it is an idea that I keep in mind. There was a manual created to help people adopt this into their lives, that encyclopedia.com entails. I like to think that I dress for the job that I want, not the job of a student that I have. I want to make the impressions on others and gain my own confidence daily, and the way that I do that is by putting more effort into the outfits that I choose. If you don't believe me, take the advice from others! ManIntelligence provides studies and examples as to how men are affected by the way they dress. Youtuber Mimi Ikonn explains Why You Should Always Dress Your Best and Heena Somani, another Youtuber, gives her 5 Reasons Why You Should Always Dress Your Best. These two women provide their own personal reasons for why they feel it is important. I gain confidence daily by putting effort into my outfits. Others take notice of what I wear, and it gives me a positive attitude knowing that they see the outward impression that I want them to have. I encourage you to take the same challenge that I did and purposefully chose outfits that are reflective of your personality this week. Take note of the compliments you receive and how it personally makes you feel!
