There is an incredible misconception about what being a feminist means. It’s all too often thought of as being a dirty word or a man-hating agenda – all which are far from the truth. Simply put, being a feminist is the equality among the sexes socially, politically, legally, and economically.
I never used to be big into the law of attraction, or things like actually writing down my goals. But more than half of my new year’s goals involved getting closer to my dream life, and whatever I was doing in the past just wasn’t cutting it; I knew I had to try different methods.
There’s something nice about being up early and knowing that half the world isn’t even out of bed yet. When I was in high school, I hated the mornings and would cut it extremely close when it came to running for the bus – especially my senior year. Now that I’ve been in college for almost two years now, I have grown to like the mornings especially when I don’t have class until the afternoon.
I used to like to pretend that I’m not super into Valentine’s Day because, on one hand, I do believe you should show your love for the people in your life every day. But, on the other hand, I’m an ‘extra’ kind of person and, honestly, I love days where I can shower people with my love and appreciation for them.
Something that has really peaked my interest in the last couple months is why I am the way that I am. I know some of the aspects to that question lie in my anxiety, but there were just somethings about myself that I couldn’t explain to people or even myself.
I don’t know about any of you, but I had such weird week mentally. I mean it’s probably because January seems to be lasting FOREVER, it cold, and I’m getting really sick of chipping away ice on my car almost every morning.
The deep winter is finally here and, although I love winter, January always feels like the longest month. It’s cold, dark, and you’re never really sure what’s going on. Plus, you’re coming off the last two months of holiday hype and realizing you have no money and a whole bunch of things to do that you put off because of the holidays.
On Monday of this week, I returned to classes for my second semester of my sophomore year. And it’s been quite the week of a little bit of stress and a lot of changes. Honestly, school is not my favorite thing, but I’ve found some habits since starting college that has only proved to be helpful and make life a little easier that I wanted to share with you guys.
Every year as you get older just gets faster and faster. I feel like it was just 2016’s New Year’s Eve and then I blinked and here we are a whole trip around the sun later. It’s crazy and I will never not be shocked by how fast a year goes by.
