Whether I like it or not, I’ll be turning 20 this weekend. Friday will be my last day of being nineteen and clueless. After that, I’ll be 20 and sophisticated. Just kidding, no matter what age I turn, I’ll always be clueless about something. Anyways before I make a wish and blow out my candles, I wanted to share a couple of things I’ve learnt this past year. I know what you’re probably thinking, what type of wisdom could a nineteen year old share? Even though I still have not been able to master the proper form of taking a selfie, I have grasped some helpful information about life. First, through all the stress and hard work that we go through everyday, we seem to forget that time passes by quicker than we believe. Like I’ve said before, I advise you all to remember to live in the moment. Second, I’ve learnt that I really dislike change, but I’ve also matured a bit more because of it. However, I’ll probably always dislike change because of how stubborn I am. All in all, my nineteenth year was a pretty great year. If I’m lucky, I hope that by next year I’ll be mature enough to enjoy the taste of coffee and know how to take a proper selfie.

What does it take to be considered a girl boss? Power? Confidence? Intelligence? When I think of girl boss, I imagine someone who’s not afraid to take risk. I imagine someone who is glowing with confidence and pride. Have you ever heard of a store called Nasty Gal? A few months ago I ran across various Instagram posts about a book called “#GIRLBOSS.” Until today, I found out that this book was written by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal! OMG, it’s no wonder why Nasty Gal was sharing posts about the book! Anyways, after reading about this, I realized that rather than being thought of as the next Steve Jobs, women like Sophia are now creating their own titles. Let’s give it up for girl power. So, what does it take to be a girl boss? To be a girl boss (or boss in general) you have to be…
Sadly, I’m still not fully sure how to answer this question. Since I still haven’t gotten the chance to get my hands on this book, I’ll have to continue and answer, “What it takes to be considered a boss?” some other time. For now though, I encourage you all to take on the challenge and join the movement of becoming a “boss” at anything you do.
As I continue with my investigation, I would like to clarify that this post is not intended to exclude men. I am not here to create a division, instead I’m here to create an incentive for everyone to strive for success.
Books, Starbucks, and good looking backpacks, these are only a few items that get college student through the day. I may be superficial for saying this, but the appearance of a backpack is important. Listen, I love the feeling I get out of wearing an amazing outfit, but I also love the feeling I get when I get a good grade on an exam. Unfortunately, some days I don’t have enough time to pick out an outfit, so I end up grabbing random items from my closet. Just like bad hair days, bad outfit days exist too. So you may ask, how can I avoid this type of fashion faux pas? The answer is, find an appealing backpack! This way, all the attention will be drawn to your backpack, and your outfit will most likely be overshadowed. Also, pick a backpack that matches your everyday style, so it won’t be too obvious that you’re trying to cover up your outfit. School is stressful, so don’t torture yourself if you can’t put together an awesome outfit in 10 minutes. Instead, look for a backpack that will save you from having another bad outfit day.
