Going out is one of the best parts of college. It doesn't matter the day of the week, time of year or the occasion, going out is a huge part of a lot of students' college experiences. Some nights are a bust, some are successful and some just end up with a s**t ton of junk food. Here is a typical night out in my world.

1. Getting Ready

Getting ready is actually one of my favorite parts of the night. My friends and I raid each other's closets and basically have a fashion show until each accessory is perfect. Music is jamming, we are perfecting our smokey eyes and doing each other's hair. It is quite a sight to see. After everyone has approved each other's looks for the night, we head downstairs to take some pictures.

2. Pictures

We all head downstairs to take some pictures before our big night out. We perfect out hair, poses and lighting before taking our "insta-worthy" pictures of the night. Turn your air drop on, send me the group photo and we need to retake that are all things you will definitely hear everyone saying. When everyone is content with their photos, the uber is called.

3. The Uber

"Kevin is two minutes away everyone!" Everyone files outside to get into our uber. We all pile in. We ask the uber driver to play us some tunes and everyone jams along. Most of the time, the uber driver will say we are a funny group of girls. Other times, the uber driver seems annoyed. Eventually, we finally arrive at our destination.

4. The Actual Party

We finally arrive at our destination, whether its Midtown, Downtown or a house party. We all walk in together and scope out the scene. We make a lap around the club/party to say hi to everyone we know. After a while, we are all doing our own things such as socializing with friends, talking to cute boys or hitting up the dance floor. Typically, we all lose each other at the club and get one million "Where are you..." texts. There is always the one friend that ends up talking to the boy she promised she would never speak to again. Then there is the friend who is crying over a boy, as well as the friend that just wants to go home and watch Netflix in bed.When everyone has had enough, you know what that means...food.

5. Food

It's the typical drunk food debate. Should we go to Pizza by the Slice, Relish, Pita Pit or Jimmy Johns? Especially in a college town, the options are endless. Of course, no one wants the same thing so we make a round trip to each stop. Once everyone is satisfied with their food, it's time to uber back.

6. Arrival Home

Now this my friends is the funniest part of the night when we talk about everything that just went down while snacking. You will hear things like, "Her ex-boyfriend did what?" or "I met the cutest boy tonight." After everyone has finally told all of their funny stories of the night, it's time for bed. Usually, someone goes a little too crazy and we have to throw them in the shower and put them to bed. Trust me, it is all being photographed so we can laugh at it the next day. The night is over and it is time to sleep. Now that, my friends, is a typical night out in my world.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

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.
