10 Ways Pageants Ruined Me.

Keali Lay

Competing in pageants can no doubt change a person. But it’s not always what you think. Pageantry definitely changed who I am. Screen shot 2014-09-15 at 6.12.51 PM 10 Ways Pageants Ruined Me:

1) They totally depleted any desire I had to settle for mediocre. Average. Just ‘okay’. Status quo.

2) They destroyed my shyness and anxiety I had towards interacting with people my own age without constant fear of judgment. That being said…

3) They also screwed up any hopes I ever had of worrying about interviews or addressing adults. Speaking with superiors was already one of my strengths, but now it is a skill I have refined and honed so much that I actually look forward to tough questions and serious discussions.

4) They shut down any fears I had about singing with an audience. I am no Aretha, Carrie, or Celine, but how many people actually conquer that fear in their lifetime? I…

The worst teenage fashion mistakes of the naughties

Love With The Lights On

1. The Hooch coat. Remember this girls? The huge fur hood and the pom, poms? If you didn’t have a Hooch coat back in 2000, you simply were not cool. I remember the day I got one, walking down the corridor at school like I was the absolute don (until someone pulled my pom poms and the fur ball fell off, then my reign as the Hooch queen was officially over)

2. The earrings with your name through. I was never lucky enough to have my own pair of these, although sometimes wore my best mates and pretended my name was ‘Sarah’ on a Friday night. At 15 years old, these were what we all wanted, saving up all our spends to go to Warren James and become the ultimate chav.

3.  Tooth gems. Just why? Why did we ever think it was a great idea to…

10 problems girls face the morning after the night before

Love With The Lights On

1.  Trying to peel your eyes open – If you can. That feeling of panic you get when you can’t open your eyes because last nights fake eyelashes are stuck to your bottom lashes. Probably best to keep them shut.

2. Waking up in your dress. Oh no, the panic begins to rush through you as you realise the state you must have been in. Could it get worse? Yes.

 

3. Waking up naked. Why am I naked? I never sleep naked. Suddenly you feel very vulnerable and quickly sit up in a crazy rush to find the nearest item of clothing. Then you feel very dizzy. Lie back down.

4. Finding the phone. No, your not ready to face the music. You know you’ve been a drunk dialler and can’t bear to see those cringey texts just yet.

 

5. Oh…

Join Us in the Fight For Net Neutrality

The WordPress.com Blog

“Net Neutrality” is the simple but powerful principle that cable and broadband providers must treat all internet traffic equally. Whether you’re loading a blog post on WordPress.com, streaming House of Cards on Netflix, or browsing handcrafted tea cozies on Etsy, your internet provider can’t degrade your connection speed, block sites, or charge a toll based on the content that you’re viewing.

Net neutrality has defined the internet since its inception, and it’s hard to argue with the results: the internet is the most powerful engine of economic growth and free expression in history. Most importantly, the open internet is characterized by companies, products, and ideas that survive or fail depending on their own merit — not on whether they have preferred deals in place with a broadband service provider. Unfortunately, the principle of net neutrality, and the open internet that we know and love, is under attack.
