An Open Letter to My Fellow Insecure College Students
…As humans we are taught and conditioned to behave as though we have everything together — even when we don’t. We get so caught up in our daily life that we have a tendency to forget, everyone has faults that they hide and try to avoid acknowledging. No one is perfect, no matter how perfect they seem. Not even that one girl you know with a fashion blog — we’re all human. It’s okay. Just do what you have to do, and don’t worry about anyone else. It’s okay if you didn’t get an A this time on that paper. It’s alright to eat that red velvet cupcake and not count the carbs sometimes. You’re not lazy for sleeping in on Sunday morning — sometimes your body needs the extra sleep. Don’t be so hard on yourself.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re studying English Literature, Theology, Economics, or Biology. The message is the same. You are smart, you belong, and you’ve worked hard to get where you are. Don’t ever doubt yourself, or allow the presence of someone whether it be a pseudo intellectual or a supermodel to change your opinion of yourself. You are what you believe you are. The Sufi poet Saadi once said, “Human beings are members of a whole, in creation of one essence and soul.”"

Do they have pads and tampons in the wizarding world? or do they just cast some super absorbing spell on their underwear?
Are girls allowed to bring tampons to the Hunger Games arena?
Or do they have to publicly announce that they are on their period and hope a sponsor will send a parachute?
Or do they have to make their own out of moss?
I am so glad I’m not the only one who’s thought of this.
