You are a QUEEN. You deserve the best in the world and you won't get the best if you don't DEMAND it in your everyday life.
1. When you get ready for class, you get up, dress up, show up, and never give up. If you dress well, you feel well about yourself. It's that simple.
2. Stop saying, "omg I am so basic". Bitch hell no. You are a bad ass bitch! Who cares if you like taking selfies and drinking starbucks? Grey's Anatomy is a GREAT show and so is Friends. I love starbucks and I love posting super cute instas with cute captions, but I don't give a damn what other people think about it, because it is what makes ME happy.
3. Believe in yourself. You can do anything you want to. All you have to do is put in the effort.
4. Know that you are a prize to be won. Don't let boys be mean to you. Don't let girls be mean to you. If someone is mean to you, take it as a compliment that you are enough of a threat to them that they are trying to take you down, and then tell them to politely f*ck off.
I have been #blessed (yeah I said it) with amazing role models that show me every day how to love myself. My greek family is AMAZING. My great grand big who's a senior now went to a frat party with the rest of the fam a few weeks ago and made us run around the house trying to find the best lighting for an insta and then proceeded to make a pledge take our picture. She shamelessly made him take picture after picture until she was satisfied, and when any of us complained, she flawlessly responded with, "whatever I want a cute pic and I don't give a sh*t what these guys think". Here's the final product which did come out great:
So that's what I'm telling all of you. Be the best. Have confidence in yourself that YOU ARE A QUEEN. Because as soon as you start saying that to yourself, other people will start saying that about you too. You don't have to be the skinniest, or the prettiest, because no one should be comparing themselves to others. Make yourself the best you can be. As soon as you start comparing yourself to your best friend who can't gain weight no matter how much junk food they eat, you will be miserable. You need to love yourself. You are the only person who should be validating you.
Be fierce, be strong, don't let bitches get you down. Be the boss ass bitch I know you are.
