I can still recall a time about 15 years ago when my Myspace page said "I'm terrified of flying, but traveling is one of my favorite things." It's always been a fact of my life, but I've never let it slow me down.
Ready to plan for Mercury retrograde 2020? Even if you're not someone who's big on astrology, you've probably heard of Mercury retrograde, a period of time when the planet's position supposedly causes general confusion and upheaval in our lives.
The Amalfi Coast has long been a hotspot for the rich and famous (Kylie Jenner spent her 22nd birthday in the region in 2019). With rainbow buildings, gorgeous viewpoints, and peaceful beaches, it's exactly where you want to go for a perfect holiday in Italy.
We've all found ourselves in awkward situations where we'd rather scroll mindlessly on our phone than make the effort of mingling. But it doesn't have to be anxiety-inducing to break the ice with people you've never met before.
Whether you're looking to get rid of stuff or you want to help others in need, there are so many ways to donate anything you own. We have created the ultimate list of places you can donate and what kinds of items they accept.
Everyone tells college students to get out of their comfort zone, discover new things, and make new friends. So when I was applying to colleges in 2015, everyone told me to not go to the same school as my best friend, and if we did, we definitely shouldn't room together.
Image Source: Everett Collection It's times like this when I need Hermione Granger here to smack some sense into me, because I'm preparing to blow all my savings at the new Harry Potter store coming to New York City. As the first official Harry Potter flagship location, the three-story shop will take up 20,000 square feet of space and have all the makings of your traditional Diagon Alley locale, adding a little bit of magic to the muggle world.
Ask anyone what their ultimate goal in life is, and no matter what their answer is - be it a job, a relationship, or something else - it all boils down to one basic want: happiness. However, most of us are doing happiness all wrong.
In high school, I always felt like the "cool" thing to do was to keep up with all the popular social media influencers. If you didn't follow Kylie Jenner's Instagram religiously, you were the odd person out.
As someone who identifies as both an extrovert and introvert (according to my Myers-Briggs test results), having a nice balance of social time and also a secure sense of my own personal space is very important to me. I love getting to know people, and can actually be pretty touchy-feely with the people in my life who are close to me.
Being a part of the Disney College Program is a dream for many college students. It's a chance to work at the Disney parks while earning college credit, and if you're a Disney fan, it seriously doesn't get much better than that.
Growing up, the word "death" didn't hold nearly as much weight as it does now. I used to associate it mostly with older relatives, but it still wasn't something I entirely understood.
When I showed my mother the film Crazy Rich Asians, her first reaction was to wrinkle her nose and pointedly comment at all the parties with hundreds of people in attendance. While I like the movie and what it represents, I could see her point.
I recently saw the new Little Women movie with my mom, and in one of the scenes, Jo March (played by Saoirse Ronan), says to her older sister, "I can't believe childhood is over." I had been feeling some sort of nostalgia lately and couldn't quite put my finger on what it was until I heard her say this line.
When I was in second grade, I was obsessed with the movie Grease. I loved the music, the dancing, and the retro vibes, but most of all, I loved the friendships.
I've always been the "brainy" girl. I was in the "talented and gifted" program in my elementary school and then took all the upper-level classes when I was in high school.
When you think about going to college, you probably imagine the whole college experience: a new roommate, shared bathrooms, and parties in the dorms. But living on campus isn't a viable option for everyone, which can make feeling connected to your school (and making new friends) a real challenge.
I never thought my screen time was that bad. Sure, I'm on my phone a lot, but it wasn't until I started receiving notifications from Apple informing me of just how much time I was spending on it each week that I realized the damage it might actually be causing.
The start of a new year (and a new decade) always brings about exciting change. In addition to fiery love horoscopes for 2020 (thanks to Venus's retrograde!), we'll also be experiencing a life-changing astrological shift.
The post-holiday blues are the worst. After warm family get-togethers, festive parties, gift exchanges, and more treats than you could hope for, January tends to be a bit . Post-holiday blues have nothing on you this year!
You probably don't think too much about cleaning your sink, but it should be on your list of household chores. You can make it shine like new for almost nothing using products you probably already have - plus, there's no scrubbing involved with this quick cleaning method.
