Q & A

Today's blog is pretty simple, I asked you guys to tweet me any questions you had for me, and now I'm going to answer them.

Natalie (@NatalieSemsel) asked: 

  • What job do you want with social media?

Well if you read my last blog post you'll know my new dream job is to work for the company 160over90, a branding agency in Philadelphia. I don't know what position I would like there, but if that doesn't work out working for Buzzfeed would be awesome.

  • Do you plan funny posts for laughs sometimes?

Yes and no. I am not bragging when I say people tell me I'm funny all the time, I genuinely hear that very often. It's something I take pride in, but it doesn't all come naturally. I'm constantly looking for the next one-liner or punch line in a conversation and it's the same with blog posts. I try and write funny content because that's what I'm good at. I'm not as happy with my more serious posts and I think they don't do as well for that very reason. 

  • Did you have MySpace?

Of course, what middle school girl didn't? I'm actually really sad that I don't know my login anymore because I would really like to laugh at my embarrassing posts. 

Alex (@alexandrareese_) asked:

  • Why haven't you written about me yet?

I am so terribly sorry, Alex. Stay tuned for my next post, folks "10 Reasons Why Alex Camplese is the Best Person Ever." No, but really Alex constantly supports my blog and I am forever grateful. 

Sheridan (@Sher_Bear36) asked: 

  • Do you think social media has changed the person you are?

Again, yes and no. I think social media honestly changes everyone. I wholeheartedly believe my teen years would be completely different if social media didn't exist. At the same time, I think social media just enhances who I already am. I'm free to be who I want, say what I want, post what I want but I choose to post the things that I do because I think it will display me in the most accurate way. Sometimes that means tweeting "my diet is froot loops and pizza oops", 10 points if you can find that tweet. 

  • Why is our culture so obsessed with social media in your opinion?

I think social media is so obsessive because it can be whatever you want it to be. We can reach a large number of people in a small amount of time. You can say whatever you please and choose to view whatever you want to see. There's something for everyone honestly and you don't have to be an expert to use it. 

  • Do you think your life is heading in the direction you thought it would?

Honestly a year or two ago I had no plans in life. I was going to high school because I had to, I had no true passions in anything and now I love life more than I ever have. I'm pursuing a degree in something I love doing, I have amazing friends and family (I had those things before too but now I have more), and I'm just really happy with life. I'm in a good place and it makes me realize that every decision I've ever made, good or bad, has led me to writing this very blog post, so I do not regret a single thing. 

Thanks so much to everyone for sending in questions, this was actually really fun to write! I might do a second part if that's something you guys would want to read. Thanks always for reading and I hope you can find something to laugh about today!

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
