New Year, New Me?

When Fall semester ended, I took a break from writing but now as Spring semester is here (holy moly), I have decided to continue writing again. This month-long break of no studying, no homework, no stress, lots of time with friends and family, and too many naps to count was much needed. At the end of Fall semester, I was just done and ready for a break and now I am refreshed and ready to rock out my last semester as a Sophomore in college, wow.

As 2018 rolled in, I saw many people on social media talking about their "New Years Resolutions" and "New Year, New Me." I am not one to make resolutions for the upcoming new year because I think it is crazy and nobody ever keeps those. Right? I think we should have New Year Goals instead of resolutions that we probably won't ever keep. For instance, going to the gym every day and eating healthy. Now, those are AWESOME resolutions but not many of us ever keep them but if you do, kudos to you!

Instead of resolutions, I have come up with some goals that I hope to achieve this year. I want to strive to be healthier and get in shape at my own pace, simply love people better, dig into God's Word and experience His grace, and strive for success as a college student.

These goals may not seem grand to you but they are grand to me. I want to become a healthier version of myself and love people the way that Jesus does. I also want to give all I have to become the best future teacher I can be this semester. Last semester, I let myself become bogged down in school work and get way too stressed but this semester I hope to not let myself become as stressed and focus on not becoming a procrastinator, ha!

If you don't have any goals yet for this new year, I encourage you to start praying and thinking about some goals that you want to achieve this year. Whether it's school related, health-related, work-related, or relationship related, I hope you strive to achieve these goals this year. What are your goals this year?

I can't wait to see all that God has in store for me in 2018! Happy New Year, friends!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7073

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
