Women Can Too!

It’s time for everyone to realize that women can too!

Women Can Too!

A lot of times being in a majority male class it comes with its hardships. As if highschool isn't hard enough it seems like the boys, and men, want to make it harder. I think a lot of times, it is hard for a boy, or man, to realize that women can too! When the very little amount of girls, we have in my graduating class (which is only three) accomplish something the boys did not, they seem to complain and argue. It is sad when the girls get accepted into their dream school, and one of the boys who doesn't even want to go to college, makes them think low of themselves just for accomplishing and getting that much.

Most of the girls in my class, including myself, have to work hard for everything they accomplish or they want to get. Some of the boys, on the other hand, get fed with a silver spoon and get everything they ever wanted, and belittle the girls because of it. When the girls stand up for something they believe in, or stick up for themselves, the boys call them out and say how they'll never go anywhere, or do anything sometimes.
I believe, that all highschool boys need to learn that women can too! Women can achieve something over a man! Women can go after their dreams and achieve them, even if a man is too lazy to reach them.

Boys, and men, need to realize it's not about who has it handed to them, it's about who wants it most! Guess what boys? Right now the women are wanting it and going after it!
The girls in my senior class know what they're doing after graduation, they have their acts together, their future planned. Boys, you can't even say that much about yours can you? But with that being said, women can be just as bad and they need to learn to step down and applaud a man if he does something great.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
