Unpopular Opinion: Zendaya Did Not Slay Met Gala 2019

On most occasions, this would not be the title to this post. Last year for Heavenly Bodies, Zendaya's Joan of Arc inspired moment gave me CHILLS. However, immediately when I saw this Cinderella for Notes of Camp, I yawned. First of all, I did not find that it really fit the theme of Camp. Unless you count that it is a glorified Disney costume that lights up over the top, maybe, but I feel like it just was not giving me the outrageous-ness that the theme demanded this year. For design and technicality, it is a very well made gown that is visually beautiful! I just thought someone who has served some serious lewks at the Met Gala would have been more original!

GASP, I know there are some stans out there that will drag me for saying this but this has been done before...but better... In 2016, for the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology Zac Posen created possibly the most beautiful gown I have ever seen for Claire Danes. It gave me Cinderella realness for all the right reasons. Let's just let it have its moment one more time:

UH. One of a kind, I am speechless, breathtaking design and structure. Zac Posen did THAT. PERIODT. To me in comparison, it makes any other attempt look cheap and tacky. I honestly don't even have an issue with the fact that Zendaya chose to wear this light up dress or that the designers at Tommy Hilfiger went on this avenue, but this was done not even five years ago!! Same color, same silhouette, same concept. That's why I can't give my stamp of approval on this because it just has an overall wannabe vibe.

Now on to more positive notes, Zendaya's second look of the night was something I was 100% behind. Although it was not very "on theme," I feel like she went very classy and chic in this pink Grecian inspired gown.

Beautiful and effortless, I almost wish she would have jacked this dress up on Camp steroids and wore this as her main and the Cinderella as her after party. But alas, I am just a broke college student behind a computer screen.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
