Being your own Girl Boss

October 3, 2016

I love Girl Power.  There is nothing more inspiring to me, then seeing a powerful, successful woman.  

Women like Sheryl Sandberg and Sophia Amaruso are both women who I most definitely admire.  Women who overcome obstacles to become the successful women that they are. 

So, at this point, you may be asking this question, how do I become that girl boss?

Do you have a passion?  Do you have a hobby that you can't see yourself ever giving up? 

Congratulations!!!! You have everything you need to become a girl boss.  

How do I get there? You keep on doing what you love.  You do it and you do a good job at it.  

The rewards will come with that.  Yes, you will need to work hard.  Yes, you may endure failure.  You have to keep trekking on.  Don't give up.  

Being a Girl Boss is all about you.  Yes, again, you have the power to create your destiny.  

As that famous Dr. Seuss phrase goes, "Whatever you are, be a good one."  That quote goes for miles and miles.  It is a universal saying for everyone.

Being a girl boss isn't given, its earned.  You have the power to be a girl boss.

Go out and look for it.

Negative People and Making Friends

September 26, 2016

If you have read my previous posts, you would know that most of high school I was socially absent.

I was the person, who never found their place, socially.  I never went to Prom and went to but one school dance.  I spent the nights of school dances, depressed.  Saying, why can't I be the one having fun.

I also would say, that I never had many friends.  I would spend my weekends with my parents.  Yes, you read that right.

Through high school, it was pretty much the same thing each year.  I learned a lot throughout those 4 years and finally made some awesome friends.

I still struggle, I'm shy, what else do I have to say.  I'm scared of what people think of me.  I went through high school with people whispering behind my back mean rumors about me.

I was always weary of who I made friends with.  I always second guessed my friends, when I realized that my true friends were the ones who stuck around through those times and never failed me.

What I'm trying to say here is, no one can define you.  Don't listen to what other people to say about you.

You are the one that controls your own future.  Go out and join something that you enjoy and do it for yourself and the friends will come with it.

It's a process, you're not just going to wake up one day and have a plethora of people wanting to be your friend.   Start with one person that you have similar interests with and go from there.

The Real Deal On Applying To Colleges

September 19, 2016

Rewind a year ago.....

I was just beginning my senior year of high school and with that comes that scary 7 letter word COLLEGE.

That past summer, I visited lots of colleges and sat during those admissions presentations scarily looking at that average GPA and SAT score that they post.

I like to say that I was a "late bloomer" when it turned to school.

My freshman and sophomore years academically and otherwise I was a hot mess.

Academically, I really didn't get my act together until my junior year of high school, better late than never right? Then SAT's came around and I took classes and when the results came back, I was disappointed.

I have to say, I felt like a failure and would compare myself to many of my peers.

So, when I went to these admissions presentations and see these scores, my heart sank.  I thought to myself, wow, I am never going to get into any of these schools.

Then, I fell in love with one school, I interviewed, applied early decision, and got rejected.  I cried for three days, completely unsure of where I was going to end up.

After I got over the fact that I wasn't going to be attending my number one.  I felt like I was back to square one on my college search.

I continued to do well my senior year of high school, and went to visit one more school that I applied to last minute, and also found out that I got into the day I was rejected from my number one.

So, here's the truth about college admissions.  You may have that number one school in your head, but you are truly meant to go to school where you are supposed to go.  College is what you make of it no matter where you get in.  Also, you should never be afraid to apply to a school because of their statistics, colleges aren't looking for simply a good score or a good GPA.  They are looking for a well-rounded person.  Go out, explore your passion and keep up with it, write your college essay on it.  That's what they want to see.  Not that you joined clubs for the sake of the application, but that you did things with it.

I could go on and on, but those are basically my major statements about college admissions.

If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them in the comments or through my social media.

Gabby
