10 Things Men Don't Understand About Women, Explained

Women, sometimes we don't even get ourselves.

10 Things Men Don't Understand About Women, Explained

1. Why we take so long in the bathroom.

Gossip, makeup touch-ups and more gossip.

2. Why we go to the bathroom in pairs.

We can't gossip on our own. Since our minds are always racing non-stop, we need to be able to express ourselves to one another.

3. Why we're so emotional. No, this does not mean we are on our period. We get mad and upset and sometimes we don't even know why. Women are complicated. Bottom line.

You want to bring us a bar of dark chocolate to our door step and watch chick flicks while we cry on your shoulder? Don't mind if you do!

4. Why we say we're fine when we're not.

We want others to figure out if something’s wrong. It's not that we don't want help, we just get too upset and tired to explain why.

5. Why we date bad boys. Bad boys present themselves so easily. When we've chosen to go for the bad boy instead of the good, honest gentleman, it means we've reached a mega low. We are really just searching for love in the wrong places. Either that or we just don't think we're worthy of good, caring men.

We need to be affirmed, gentlemen!

6. Why five minutes means 30 minutes.

We really don't want to keep you waiting, so we genuinely mean five minutes when we say five minutes but then the minutes end up accidentally stretching out to become 30 minutes. It happens more often than not.

7. Why we say we want a sensitive a guy but don’t go for the sensitive guy. We don’t really want a sensitive guy, we want a guy who will be sensitive to our feelings. We're crazy emotional and need men who ground us and make us feel safe.

8. Why we spend so much time on our looks when men don’t care half the time.

We've heard men say a million times that they like us with minimum makeup and that they love us just the same in sweats as in a dress, but we can't help wanting to impress. To be quite honest, not only are we trying to impress men but also (mostly) our girlfriends.

9. Why we are so indecisive.

We don't like making decisions. We struggle because we want all people to be on board with the decision being made, so we'd rather not be the ones in charge of the final decision. Women, contrary to men, care more about the consequences of the decision instead of the decision itself. What're people going to think? Will they be upset?

10. Why we have so many shoes.

Women own about 20 pairs of shoes, on average, at a given time. Flats, heels, boots, platforms, clogs, sneakers, tennis shoes, sandals, buckled, lace-ups, peep toes — the possibilities are endless! Different colors are essential to go with different outfits. We choose shoes depending on our mood too, so sometimes we need to buy more shoes to perfectly match that mood. Shoes allows us to communicate without saying a word. A lot can be told about a person by the shoes they're wearing. For that matter, having the cutest shoes is essential. Plus, it's not like your feet are every going to lose or gain weight either so we don't have to worry if they'll still fit in the next year.

Irrational? Maybe, but to be quite honest I don’t even understand myself.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
