You Don't Need to Wear Makeup Every Day to Feel Beautiful

Do not discredit your natural beauty.

You Don't Need to Wear Makeup Every Day to Feel Beautiful

As someone who struggles with insecurities, I always hid behind makeup. Of course, makeup is an amazing and creative art form, one that I still partake in, but wearing makeup every day was taking a toll on my personal confidence and my skin. I have cystic acne so putting piles of makeup on was not helping the situation.

More recently, I have started wearing less makeup. Even the act of wearing less makeup has boosted my confidence and has allowed me to express myself without worrying if my foundation is getting splotchy and oily. My skin has started clearing up as well! Though I still wear makeup from time to time (trust me you will not find me without some mascara on!) But eliminating it from my daily routine has helped me save time in the morning!

Overall the idea of makeup is very misconstrued. It is always too much or too little. Makeup comes in many different art forms and that is the beautiful thing about it! You can do whatever you want to when it comes to putting products on your face. Just do not believe that you need to have a full face on to be beautiful, show who you are. Who you are is more beautiful than any color eyeshadow or highlight.

In the words of everyone's favorite drag queen "If you can't love yourself, then how in the hell are you gonna love anybody else" -RuPaul

Don't ever doubt your outer or inner beauty, because it is there inside all of us, it just depends on how we decide to share it with the world.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
