10 Things To Look Forward To This March

10 Things To Look Forward To This March

March has got lots to offer!


Each month, I've compiled a list of things to look forward to. Here are some of the best (in my opinion) things about March!

1. Women's History Month and International Women's Day


March is Women's History Month, and more specifically, March 8th is International Women's Day! With the rise of feminism and the #MeToo movement, there is no better time to band together and support your fellow woman!

2. Pi Day


March 14th is also known as Pi Day because of the date's correlation to the most popular never-ending number of the mathematical world: 3.14159265...and what better way to celebrate Pi Day than by eating pie!

3. The Ides of March


The 15th of March is also known as the Ides of March. This was an important date in the Roman calendar, partly for financial and religious reasons, but also because of the infamous assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC.

4. St. Patrick's Day


March is mainly known for St. Patrick's day, which falls on the 17th. The Irish have celebrated for more than 1,000 years in remembrance and celebration of their patron saint Patrick, an important figure in Christianity. The clover is another prominent symbol for a similar reason because of its resemblance to the Holy Trinity, (the three leaves), which is why wearing green is a popular tradition.

5. Daylight Savings Time and Spring Equinox


The 21st of March marks the first day of Spring! Even though Oklahoma isn't at all predictable in terms of weather, we can at least count on a few more warm days, some gentle sun, and fresh, green buds on the trees. Daylight Savings Time begins, too. Though you do lose an hour of sleep (which I notice all too well), the days are longer and brighter, which makes for an overall happier mood.

6. Aquamarine


January has the garnet, and February the amethyst. March has it's own birthstone as well - aquamarine! This transparent light-blue, sometimes blue-green, gem is said to protect soldiers in battle, foster young love, and rekindle stagnant marriages.

7. The Daffodil


Each month has a gem stone and each month has a flower. March's flower is the daffodil, also known as the narcissus or the jonquil. This bright yellow flower represents playfulness, friendship, and rebirth.

8. Beer (bonus points if it's green!)


Since each month has its own birthstone and flower, I've decided to add a signature drink as well. Considering the St. Patrick's day traditions and activities, it only seems right that March's drink should be beer. If you want to be extra festive, make it a green beer!

9. Spring Break!


For most of us, spring break is during the month of March. So, get ready to pack your bags and either go home to relax or travel far away for a new adventure!

10. Kite Flying Weather


March is also known for its very windy weather- which has been very clear here in Norman in the past few days. The wind patterns change and are more drastic due to warming from the sun, so it's all for the best. Grab a kite and make the most of it!

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.
