Why is makeup such a big deal?

None.

There is absolutely no connection between the amount of makeup a girl wears (or doesn't) and anyone but her.

No one has the right to tell a woman to:

-Wear makeup.

-Not wear makeup.

-Criticize makeup.

Here are a couple times that people thought it was okay to judge:

1.

First of all, I think it is great that we live in a country where anyone can freely discuss anything and everything, however, I do think it is a little ridiculous that there was an entire segment dedicated to discussing how makeup may or may not empower these amazing olympic women or if they should or should not wear it. For the women who wore makeup during their olympic events and while receiving their medals, you looked great. For the women who didn't wear makeup during their olympic events and also received medals, you looked great as well.

2.

Alicia Keys has been on a make-up free lifestyle for some time now, but for some reason people felt the need to criticize when she came to The VMA's without any makeup on.

The response:




Think about it 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🙄😂 this is deep😳 #naturallove I'm not mad I'm just saying:)

And just a heads up to all the girls out there who criticize other women, not just about makeup, if you don't stand up for women why would a man?

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.
