Trend Alert: Why I Wear “My Intent” Bracelets
Tingting Wu

A new celebrity favorite, “My Intent” bracelets are taking over our social media. You might have seen these coin-like bracelets on celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Cody Simpson and many more. So what is so special about these small little bracelets? The answer is more than you can imagine.

Chris Pan is the guy to thank when it comes to these meaningful dainty bracelets. The founder started this company/ movement in Los Angeles, California. The intent (no pun intended) for starting this company was to spread positive energy and encourage meaningful conversations.

I first saw these bracelets on Instagram and I fell in love right away. The idea of having a word or phrase that you strongly believe in being able to be made into a piece of jewelry is pretty cool, to say the least. We all need to be motivated from time to time, and what better way to do that than wearing your motivation on your wrist at all times?

Here is my “My Intent” story. I personally need constant motivation in order to get through the day. The phrase that I chose for my “My Intent” bracelet is SELF LOVE 105. To me, SELF LOVE is very important. Being able to love yourself is harder than it sounds. It is really easy to pick out all the bad things that are wrong with us but picking out the good ones is not that easy.

I have always had a very bad attitude when it came to loving myself, I would constantly pick out every little thing that I do not love about my body and everything that I wanted to change. Having the phrase SELF LOVE on my bracelet reminds me to think positively about myself and love myself whether I am having a shi**y day or the best day of my life.

Now you are probably wondering what the 105 stands for. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you (since I’ve started writing articles, I feel like the whole world knows every little detail about me, so why not tell you this). The 105 is not a class number or a date like some people assume. The number 105 actually means 105 pounds.

I’ve always had some body image insecurities since I was little and 105 pounds has always been the weight that I loved myself the most at. Now tying this back in with SELF LOVE; instead of worrying about what people will think about me or this whole 105 pound thing, I learned to always love myself and focus on ME. No one is living in my body other than me so the weight that I will love myself at (which is 105 pounds) is the weight that I will push myself toward.

I’ve had my “My Intent” bracelet for a little over a month now and it is doing wonders. Whenever I am feeling discouraged during school or frustrated at work, I look down at my wrist to give myself that little reminder. This bracelet is not a medication or magic trick to motivate you or make you be positive. It is all about you and you motivating yourself. You are the one choosing the word or phrase that keeps you going and you are the one channeling your negativity to positivity when looking down at your bracelet every day. I strongly suggest giving “My Intent” a try if you are struggling with being positive and motivating yourself (and let’s not forget how stylish it is).

So my question to you is; what is your word?

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
