Students who love their school will still be able to list off the aspects that suck about it. If you go to Grand Valley State University, here’s 10 things that suck that I’m sure you can relate to.

1. Size:

This can be a good thing but not when you try to get a quick bite to eat on campus and end up bumping into everyone. It can range from co-workers to classmates to old high school peeps you were hoping you could avoid.

2. Doors:

Everyone holds doors open for people at Grand Valley State University. At times, it gets to a degree of politeness that just seems weird. You don’t have to wait 1-5 minutes for me so I can get through the door. Thanks, but no thanks.

3. Tailgating.

We get it, it gets crazy before games. But please put your empty bottles in the trash!


4. Printing:

This has just recently become a problem but avoiding printing at certain buildings can be easier said than done at Grand Valley State University. Not to mention that you aren't allowed to print past 500 pages a semester so be careful what you print.


5. Food:

Rotate your on-campus food choices. It can get repetitive really quickly.


6. Textbooks:

They are expensive as hell, but at least GVSU has the price comparison feature. Most schools' bookstores aren’t cheap either but at least Grand Valley State University doesn’t hide which places give you a better deal.

7. Printing:

Yes, this deserves another spot. Chances are you hit a good day if the printer isn’t down somewhere. Don’t try fixing it yourself either. It WILL get pissed at you.


8. Parking:

Parking is incredibly expensive due to lack of it at Grand Valley State University. Don’t be that guy who thinks they can get away with parking in the handicap spot in the landing zone under fuel. Guess what? You can’t.

9. Buses:

If you aren’t even slightly buzzed and you’re on a bus during the weekend, you are in for a world of obnoxious annoyance due to all the party-ers. Skip the trip and phone a friend. It isn’t worth it.

10. If you go under the blue bridge structure you aren’t going to have bad luck.

You will get weird stares from people who believe in the superstition though. Yes it is annoying having to deal with societal norms but don’t be the odd one out in this situation at Grand Valley State University.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
