Why It's Okay to Wear Makeup

Why It's Okay to Wear Makeup

Because you should always feel confident about yourself.

One of the misconceptions in our society today is the thought that girls are trying to hide who they really are and what they really look like when they wear makeup. Well, I am here to tell you that this simply isn’t true. Girls aren’t wearing makeup in an attempt to hide themselves; they are wearing makeup in order to feel more confident about themselves because our society believes in an ideal form of beauty. Yes, girls may be covering up the blemishes on their faces and enhancing some of their facial features, but they are not doing so in order to conceal themselves from the world.

There are certainly girls who don’t feel the need to wear makeup, and I am definitely not bashing on them. I am simply trying to make a point of explaining why other girls may be wearing a lot of makeup, and through this explanation, I am trying to keep them from being judged by others. There is no shame in wearing makeup, no matter how much, because if that is what makes you feel confident, then no one has the right to tell you otherwise.

I am not one of those people who can go around with a natural face, so I wear makeup on a daily basis, and sometimes I feel a little judged for it. However, as many of you know, I feel more confident about myself in public when I wear makeup, so I continue to wear it. The reason that I do this is obviously not to hide my face from those around me. I don’t believe that wearing makeup is like wearing a “mask,” because who you are doesn’t depend on your outward appearance. It depends on your personality and your individual characteristics. Girls certainly wear makeup in order to cover up some of their physical characteristics, but even a maximum amount of makeup cannot hide who these girls truly are.

Many people may believe that wearing a lot of makeup is not really acceptable. I suppose that some people see girls wearing makeup as a sort of flaw. However, if that is what makes them feel confident about themselves, then they should not have to deal with any hatred from others. Wearing makeup makes me feel confident about myself and about my outer beauty, and I don’t believe that I should be getting judged for thinking so.

I know for a fact that there are girls out there who have clear faces and don’t need to wear makeup to feel confident about themselves, and they judge other girls for wearing makeup. This should not be an issue in our society. If you are fine without makeup, then great for you! But do not go around telling girls who may see some major flaws in their natural selves that they look “fake” when they wear makeup. Keep your thoughts to yourself, and allow girls to do what they need to do in order to feel confident.

The Trump Presidency Is Over

Say hello to President Mike Pence.


Remember this date: August 21, 2018.

This was the day that two of President Donald Trump's most-important associates were convicted on eight counts each, and one directly implicated the president himself.

Paul Manafort was Trump's campaign chairman for a few months in 2016, but the charges brought against him don't necessarily implicate Trump. However, they are incredibly important considering was is one of the most influential people in the Trump campaign and picked Mike Pence to be the vice presidential candidate.

Manafort was convicted on five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of failure to file a report of a foreign bank account. And it could have been even worse. The jury was only unanimous on eight counts while 10 counts were declared a mistrial.

Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, told a judge that Trump explicitly instructed him to break campaign-finance laws by paying two women not to publicly disclose the affairs they had with Trump. Those two women are believed to be Karen McDougal, a Playboy model, and Stormy Daniels, a pornstar. Trump had an affair with both while married to his current wife, Melania.

And then to no surprise, Fox News pundits spun this in the only way they know how. Sara Carter on Hannity said that the FBI and the Department of Justice are colluding as if it's some sort of deep-state conspiracy. Does someone want to tell her that the FBI is literally a part of the DOJ?

The Republican Party has for too long let Trump get away with criminal behavior, and it's long past time to, at the very least, remove Mr. Trump from office.

And then Trump should face the consequences for the crimes he has committed. Yes, Democrats have a role, too. But Republicans have control of both chambers of Congress, so they head every committee. They have the power to subpoena Trump's tax returns, which they have not. They have the power to subpoena key witnesses in their Russia investigations, which they have not.

For the better part of a year I have been asking myself what is the breaking point with Republicans and Trump. It does not seem like there is one, so for the time being we're stuck with a president who paid off two women he had an affair with in an attempt to influence a United States election.

Imagine for a second that any past president had done even a fraction of what Trump has.

Barack Obama got eviscerated for wearing a tan suit. If he had affairs with multiple women, then Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell would be preparing to burn him at the stake. If they won't, then Trump's enthusiastic would be more than happy to do so.

For too long we've been saying that Trump is heading down a road similar to Nixon, but it's evident now that we're way past that point. Donald Trump now has incriminating evidence against him to prove he's a criminal, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller is just getting started.

Will Trump soften the blow and resign in disgrace before impeachment like Nixon did? Knowing his fragile ego, there's honestly no telling what he'll do. But it's high time Trump leaves an office he never should have entered in the first place.

America You Made Your Choice

At the end of the day, you are definitely partly to blame...

PSA ~~ Before I even start writing this article I want it to be know that I am not trying to cause an outcry nor am I insulting the American people nor am I saying that the United States has a perfect form of government, I am just trying to put things into perspective. Obviously each country has it's own personal problems with forms of governments, but obviously some are just worse than others. So no, I am not saying that the United States government does not have flaws, nor am I saying it is completely flawed, so please do not come at me. I have the utmost respect to the United States government and to the United States, so that is the end of that. ~~

Whenever you have been hurt badly, wether emotionally or physically, you think that that pain is the worst thing imaginable, but all it takes for that idea to be falsified it for a worse pain to come your way. As people, we have a very hard time distinguishing "the worst" something can get, so we simply label something like the worst until something new comes along and pushes that scale further. Seemingly, that is what is happening with people's opinion on the voting system, the government, and the country as a whole.

For many people, this is the worst political situation America has been in during its modern history. A lot of people talk about how although they didn't agree with many of the policies made with presidents following Jimmy Carter, that they can still somewhat understand the logic or respect these decisions. But these past couple years seem to have removed this idea for people, causing many people to believe that this is the downfall or the apocalypse of American politics. I have heard people even go as far to say that this is the worst political climate ever. When I asked him if he simply meant in America's history or in the world, he vigorously said "worldwide."

Now America has always had a long tradition of being pretty self-centered, and wether I think this makes sense is a story for another time, but it is common for citizens to think of it as the center of the world. This is especially clear when much of elementary, middle and high school history curriculum solely focuses on America and very little on other countries. I am bringing this up because much like how people can't understand the "worst pain" until they experienced or seen something worse, this is much like people's perspectives on their own countries political climate.

What is clear is that there are so many countries that have political climates so much worse than that of the United States, and if you ask people from those countries how the United States is doing many of them still dream that their country could be as democratic as America. Some countries have rigged elections, very little personal freedoms, corruption and so much more plaguing their day to day life. So what is clear to me is that yes, the US is having a definite change in their political climate, but just look at so many other countries, and you will realize that on the spectrum of things, you are so lucky to have the political system you have, flaws and all.
