6 Fashion Items You Don't Need In College
Heading off to college and starting off a new chapter in your life can be daunting, but it could also be pretty exciting since this is when you'll get to know yourself a little bit better. Your taste will differ and your style will completely change. In short, your college wardrobe will be a completely different ball game now. Get ready to leave some old clothes behind and know which fashion items you totally don't need for college!
We know you love your favorite artist or band, but you don't need to wear their merchandise when you're in college because it's time to experiment with new clothing. You can still wear it minimally, but hopefully it's not the one that has your favorite artist's face on the entire T-shirt.
Worn out flip-flops
Some colleges may allow flip-flops in school, but it's probably time to retire your old flip-flops and trade them in for some sandals or flats. Flip-flops are ultra comfortable, but it will give others or maybe even your professor the impression that you can't be bothered to put on some presentable shoes for college.
Bright, colored jeans
Your college outfits will probably last you either a year or the entire four years you'll be staying at your university, so it's time to invest in a good pair of jeans and not bright colored ones that won't even last you a year in college.
Taking the lead from bright colored jeans, it's also probably best if you ditch your eccentric shorts as well. If your shorts have more than one color or pattern in them, it's best to leave them behind and get yourself some denim or plain shorts that would better match your outfits.
High school tees
College is all about embracing this new university and culture that you're in. You can still show off your school spirit with your new university shirts and not your old high school tees. You could still wear them once in a while, but remember, you've probably worn them enough during your four years of high school.
This should go without saying that any article of clothing that you may have that involves cartoons, is not what you need in college. We wouldn't want our inner kid in us to completely go away, but maybe it's best if we just kept it low-key.
What's the one thing you cannot swear off even in college?

Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
Bored this quarantine? Ever heard of the #chloetingchallenge? Since you got a lot of time in your hands, why not try Chloe Ting's workouts for free? YES! You heard it right. For FREE!
Aside from the fact that you can do it comfortably inside of your home, it doesn't require any equipment. You just need to be present! If you don't have any yoga mat, you can use a towel instead. For weights you can just use your body weight or water bottles.
Don't worry, based on my personal experience (and for others who already tried it) it's quiet effective. Tho the 2 Weeks Shred is a bit repetitive but some of the programs are not. If you are already curious about Chloe's programs, here's the link: https://www.chloeting.com/program/
