Recently I went on a trip to a girl's favorite place: Target. I wanted to look for a new one piece swimsuit but also a dress for graduation. Well I found a cute dress and picked up some bathing suits to try on. When I tried everything on, I was getting annoyed with the sizing variations.

Typically, I wear a small in clothes. I have literally been the same weight for 8 years now so you cannot tell me I've changed in size. Well I tried on the dress in a small and it was actually too big! I tried on an extra small and it fit perfect. No big deal, it was just a minor sizing difference. Then when I tried on the bathing suits, things got interesting. The small was wayyyy to small. The medium fit my body except the bust was still way too small. The large then fit better in the bust, but was baggy around the rest of my body. Can you see the frustration?

Now of days women constantly have to try on clothes in all types of stores because sizing is never consistent. I know there are a lot of body types, but these variations are so extreme anymore. Like how can I go from wearing an extra small dress to a large bathing suit? That is way too big of a difference. Even kids clothes are probably the same way. Some of the outfits I see in the kids section look like they are large enough that I can fit in them! I received a pair of YOUTH LARGE pajama pants for Christmas and they fit me perfectly!

Just look at this tweet I saw the other day. It is one of the most relatable tweets and I saw so many women liking and retweeting it!

It has really become an epidemic in the fashion industry that clothing sizes just aren't standardized anymore. I understand making clothes for plus size or jeans in a short style, but the basic dimensions should stay the change. These vast variations in sizing is probably what leads to low self confidence in some women. If they go from a size 5 to a 10 in a year they might think very poorly of themselves, when in reality they didn't change one bit and here it was the manufacturer of the clothing changing the sizing.

This ridiculous variation in women's clothing really needs to stop. We need influence manufacturers to stop changing their sizing.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
