It's not as terrible as it looks.

10 Cold Hard Truths About Being A Single College Girl

I was sitting around with my mom the other night and she said, "you know, enough is enough. I'm gonna have to take finding you a boyfriend into my own hands."

Is this what rock bottom feels like? I thought.

Being single in college sometimes feels it's like the eighth deadly sin. Everyone's a critic. But the truth is, I don't mind it. There's a stigma surrounding it that's outrageous and unfair.

Sure, sometimes it's lonely and you sit wondering about how nice it would be to be able to watch movies with someone else so when you forget to pay attention you can ask them what happened.

But the truth is, I have enough going on with trying to make money and get good grades and have a social life all at the same time that I feel like it'd be unfair to everyone, and borderline selfish, to try and drag another person into that with me.

1. Someone is always asking you why you're single

And you've come up with some pretty creative answers.

2. You find yourself the butt of "single forever" jokes

*insert terrible punch line about being surrounded by cats living a sad life*

3. Someones always trying to set you up with someone

me: ok thnx Becky but I'm not really into guys that are balding prematurely with dull personalities


4. Your older relatives always hit you with the "you know when I was your age I was married with X amount of children!!"

Sorry to hear you ruined your life so early on Linda!!!!

5. You look at your coupled friends and think "thank god that's not me"

Whether they're fighting over the phone or posting corny pictures you're grateful (and so totally not bitter) that you don't have to deal with that.

6. You look at your coupled friends and think "I wish that were me"

OK, so the corny pictures are actually pretty adorable and you want everything to do with that.

7. You're closer with your other single friends

They're just easier to make plans with and understand you on another level.

8. When a creepy guy hits on you, you have to get creative

All your friends with real boyfriends have it so easy, but you just lied and said you're dating a farmer named Ralph and you're just praying he believes you.

9. You pretty much have the freedom to do whatever you want

Bar hopping tonight, clubbing tomorrow whatever.

10. You're tired of people feeling sorry for you

You're single....not dying....and *sometimes* *usually* you like being single.

There's nothing wrong with being single, it's not the end of the world, and there's certainly nothing wrong with it.

Be the doctor your parents wanted you to marry, then find someone you like.

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.

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 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.

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.

- 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 am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
