can social media save the world?

socialmedia_4

 

This is going to be a very crazy post, but I am going to do my best to organize all my ideas and thoughts. A while ago, I wrote about how awareness can only go so far in terms of solving global, social and political problems. This post is going to focus specifically on social media and the power it has. Or maybe the power it doesn’t have. Writing these kinds of posts where I look and discuss multiple points of views of a topic really helps me determine what I believe. Hopefully, reading it will have the same effects.

stop saying sorry

stop say sorry 2019.jpg

 

Yes, that’s me when I was 5. The point is, as females, we are raised from a young age, by society,  in a world where we automatically feel guilty for everything. As women, we are more inclined to say sorry for things that we aren’t even at fault for. That all the bad things can somehow to be tied back to our actions. When we say sorry, we give up our power. We relinquish it to the person at fault, who will now feel entitled to do as they want. In this post, I’m going to explore why females say sorry and how you should own yourself. I’ve read so many articles an essays about this topic, which is what initially got me interested. At the bottom of the post, there are links to websites and articles I enjoyed and recommend!

the making of a vision board

RO_-7

 

What else is there to do on a summer morning except to make a vision board. I like having order in my life, having a plan, a schedule. I obviously had to be even more planned and organized out, which led me to make a vision board. My sister and I cut things out of fashion magazines that “spoke to us”. What spoke to me were headlines about the women joining Congress. What spoke to my sister were ads for chocolate bars. That doesn’t matter, but we had fun collaging and were able to get through half a season of friends.

my may bullet journal spread, pinterest themed!

may bullet journal.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m so excited for this spread because it was by far my favorite bullet journal spread I’ve ever done. I used Pinterest to find inspiration for these pages after developing a color scheme. The core colors are a few shades of blue, a bright red, a light pink, and grey. I definitely did not keep it minimalistic. After determining that I wanted to make this month extra special, I decided to start early. This took a lot more time than my usual spreads, although if you do want to see those posts, keep reading to the end for all of those links. Enjoy!

Not everything was great this year, but I’m grateful for all the good things that happened. When you are done reading this post, comment a way you’ve grown this year or something you learned. Enjoy!

Hello Everyone! In my last post from this series, I talked about Feminism and everything you need to know about it.

BeFunky-collage-32

 

Hello Everyone! Through all the school, stress, and fatigue, I still managed to finish this month’s bullet journal. I would probably fall apart without my bujo, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that I don’t have the time. This month’s spread is more minimalistic and still cute. I started out with the theme of fall food, but I ran out of ideas and changed it to fall in general. There was also some time to practice my calligraphy and my doodling skills. This might give you some inspiration for your bujo spread or maybe you want to start a bujo. Click on the month to see that spread,  August|September| October |.  Enjoy!
