“Like A Girl” Should Not Be An Insult

You know how people say someone does something “like a girl” as an insult? LOL it’s funny right? Because, like, women are apparently weaker sex so doing something “like a girl” means they suck at it. Well, it’s time that stopped. Always just released this video to show that “like a girl” isn’t a bad thing. It’s a good thing that we should be proud of. I teared up watching this, and I think this video is going to make a big impact.

15 Amazing Pieces of Relationship, Self-Esteem and Life Advice Every Girl Needs To Hear

No One Really Cares About Your Mistakes: People are too caught up in their own insecurities to notice other people’s mistakes. No one is going to notice if your eyeliner isn’t quite perfect or if you forgot to shave your legs. No one is going to care that you are having lunch alone or watching a movie by yourself. Remember that one time that you blurted out the wrong thing in front of a zillion people? No one there even remembered it even happened except you (when you play the scene over and over in your head, mortified, late at night when you can’t sleep).

23 Times Miley Cyrus Shocked Everyone By Acting Like A Role Model

Is Miley Cyrus perfect? No, of course she isn’t. Has she done and said really stupid things? Um, yeah, she has. I’m not denying that. But keep in mind that Miley was literally growing up in front of the world, figuring out who she is and what she wants. When you’ve done that, or if you’re doing that right now, have you done/said stupid things you wish you could take back? I’m sure you have, but the difference is that the world wasn’t watching, waiting to judge.

#FeministsAreUgly Is Actually Brilliant

Apparently, feminists are total trolls according to the latest Twitter trend #FeministsAreUgly. Yup, the hashtag popped up overnight. But wait! It wasn’t started by a bunch of misogynistic jerks like everyone thought. I was prepared for a whole timeline filled with gross tweets about how much feminists suck.

No, no. It was started by two awesome feminists, Lily Bolourian (@LilyBolourian) and Christine Yang(@chueya). Lily put out the initial tweet on July 22, 2014 and Christine responded yesterday saying that we needed to get it trending.

This Teen With Cystic Fibrosis Will Inspire You Today

There are a bunch of people out there trying to become the next big YouTube star, but only a few are lucky enough to really make it. Well, once I saw this video of Claire Wineland, I knew she was going to be one of those lucky few. She posted a video on her channel (aptly named The Clairity Project) called “Perks of Going to the Hospital,” which was a fresh and hilarious take on hospital life. See, Claire has cystic fibrosis and has lived in and out of the hospital for quite some time. And she’s not letting her illness get her down. This girl is amazing! I lived in the hospital for a while, and I wish I had Claire’s strength and positive attitude when I was there.
