18 Things That Were Only OK in Middle School
Kamryn Romano

Ah middle school, the good old days! Back when our only worries were if other girls would be wearing a skirt too and if Josh from homeroom would see the note you left in his locker. Take a walk down memory lane to your middle school days.

1. Layered. Camis.

Sara Ursum

The finishing look to any ~fashionable~ outfit.

2. Colored braces!


If you're going to be stuck wearing braces you might as well make it fun! Black and orange for Halloween!!! Red and green for Christmas!!

3. Knee high Converse


Just because Avril Lavigne could pull it off didn't mean that we should, but we did it anyway.

4. Blue eyeshadow


We suddenly got access to makeup and we thought that blue eyeshadow was the right way to go. Nice.

5. Poking people on Facebook


Poke wars truly were the best way to spend a Tuesday evening after finishing your homework.

6. 1 <3 BOOBIES bracelets


"It's to support people with breast cancer" Yeah, ok Chad. If you had this bracelet BEFORE they got banned from your school, you are by definition, cool.

7. An emo phase


And if you went through this phase you're probably still a little bit emo.

8. PINK sweats


The one and only thing on your birthday list because these sweatpants cost a FORTUNE.

9. Hollister/Abercrombie skirts


You've planned this outfit for WEEKS but what if Carly doesn't wear hers tomorrow!

10. Tying your shirts with a hair tie


Look, we were small people given giant shirts. What were we supposed to do about it?

11. Feather hair


This was the ultimate stamp of "cool".

12. Facebook TBH and LMS

Morgan Shaffer

These were the things you stayed up for during sleepovers and hoped your crush would like your status.

13. Typing like thissssssssssssss(:

I loveeee uuuu!

14. Reading/writing fanfics

And if yours was really popular and it was anonymous, you were basically the coolest in homeroom, but nobody knew it.

15. Trying on prom dresses and taking pictures to post on Facebook

Kamryn Romano

So cringy looking back on it.

16.  Editing the f&*# out of pictures

Sara Ursum

Because you had to show your friends love somehow.

17. Tagging your friends in pic grids

Sara Ursum

Show off your CLOSEST friends to the rest of your timeline.

18. Taking one million pictures before the dance

Morgan Shaffer

Gotta make and save those mems!

And if you still do 85% of these things, you're still cooler than most. Long live middle school!

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
