A GIF Story: What Would Beyonce Do?

There are few things in this world that I am more obsessed with than Beyonce (…is there anything else?). While most of my friends think that I am crazy, to put it lightly, I think most of us will agree that Beyonce is the epitome of a successful, powerful, woman. Now, who doesn’t strive to be like that? Although you may not name your car after her daughter (Baby Blue, my blue Volvo) or make your profile picture on Facebook an image of you pretending to be her (see above), all collegiettes™ can learn a little something from my beloved Queen Bee. Buzz, buzz, ladies…

Although we may wish (a lot), we will never be Beyonce, but we can learn from her example. If you’re ever feeling down on yourself, just ask “What Would Beyonce Do?”
