“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” -Maria Robinson

I'm just your average college student, trying to find my place in this world. I stand up for what I believe but I will always respect what you believe. I'm a psychology major and I love over-analyzing things! It's a blessing and a curse.
Just got home from a 5 day trip to Vegas! It was a blast :) I took this picture at the top of the Eiffel tower at the Paris hotel & casino. Breathtaking view!

As women, we have been so conditioned by society to desire the approval and attention of men that catcalling and harassment on the street can be misconstrued as flattery.
In this article, a woman asking for advice on dealing with catcalls is told that she should appreciate the attention since when’s she’s older she’ll miss it.  The author captures exactly why it’s so confusing for girls today - even though harassment makes us annoyed and makes us feel unsafe, it is still reassurance that we’re pretty.  When we’re younger, the harassment is a pain, but when it’s gone some women do miss that reassurance.  However, I certainly don’t agree with the advice to just ignore the issue now because when you’re old and wrinkly you will wish a homeless man on the street would “compliment” you.
