3 Ways To Be A Winona In Today's World Full Of Kardashians

Winona forever, baby.


Sure I just used the cliche introduction and notorious household name we like to call the Kardashians, but you clicked on it — bringing this article to a valid point: you clicked because you saw the Kardashians.

In modern society, we praise fake, unrealistic figures. Just log onto Instagram and take a look at what's on your timeline. People have to prove a point on how they look in order to be excepted into today's society. Without Instagram, you really wouldn't matter. I am currently 22 years old and a quite frequent selfie poster but I prefer my sweaters over the lavish and quite trashy lifestyle that I see some of my peers enduring in. I am all for self-love, but the difference between self-love and exposure is your selling yourself short.

1. Dress To Impress

The cult of Winona Ryder is a wild sensation, that you just have to look into yourself to understand and truly define it. The first time I was exposed to her was in the movie "Heathers." This movie is full of teenage angst brought to a whole different level. Winona flips the script and literally takes down the popular clique. She is most definitely the Audrey Hepburn of the '80s and '90s. Her dark scripture is what gave her her status as an icon. This was the first movie I took notice of her looks and true beauty. The way she carried herself was classy, with a rebellious undertake. She did not need her midriff or breasts showing to sell her movies. Men wanted her for her mysterious ways. That's something rare to find in these Instagram models.

Date a Johnny Depp instead of a self-proclaimed douche bag

Now I have dated everyone from an athlete to someone who thought they were a rockstar and even people who were very positive and outgoing. And with this being said, she always had it right when it came to Johnny Depp. I'm dating this all the way back to the early '90s when he was known as Hollywood's mysterious dreamboat. Why would you want someone full of themselves when you can have someone who isn't fond of that lifestyle and treats you like you should be.

She's free-spirited and not caught up in current trends.

She was part of the grunge scene instead of the glamour pop. You can still catch her to this day in a tight black dress on the red carpet. A story went viral about her getting beat up for wearing men's clothing in her teenage years. That never changed her or the way she presented herself. She has always stood her ground and her movies and lifestyle have proven it. She is known as a Tim Burton movie icon and is counting that sense of movie and television in the hit show "Stranger Things." She has never cared what the public eye has thought of her and will keep doing so until she dies. She truly defines what an individual is. While all these girls are worried about men and how they look for men, they should start focusing on their personalities and who they really are as a person. She stood out from the rest from her carefree attitude and natural beauty. She is one of the most underrated stars of her time.

On that note, Winona forever, baby.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
