12 Times '80s Movies Described The Stereotypes Of Going To An All-Girl's School

We are real people, too, I promise

12 Times '80s Movies Described The Stereotypes Of Going To An All-Girl's School

Going to an all-girls, private school, I often hear remarks, and stereotypes from people around me. There are definitely many differences between going to a co-ed, public school and a same-gender, private school. But there are also many similarities between the two. I mean, just because I go to an all-girls school, doesn't mean I am a different species. We are the same as everyone else. And we definitely don't think we are better than you. Furthermore, the '80s was probably one of the best decades, and personally it was my favorite (even though I didn't get to live through it). Everything seemed more real back then, and nobody was afraid of what to say. So here are some stereotypes that are thrown at people who go to an all-girls school, according to the '80s.

1. We are all lesbian.

Not all of us are. Just because we go to an all-girls school, doesn't mean we don't like guys.

2. We are very cliquey.

We're not. At all. We are all one big family, and we know every little thing about each other.

3. We care about our appearance -- a lot.

You're lucky if you see any makeup on us, or with brushed hair.

4. There is always drama.

Correction. There is never drama. Like ever.

5. Salad is the only food we eat.

You are more likely to see us shoving pizza into our face.

6. We don't know how to talk to guys.

If anything, we over-talk to guys.

7. We don't socialize with boys.

We do, we really do, but if you want to hit us up, feel free.

9. We all aspire to be nuns.

Just because we go to a Catholic school, doesn't mean we all dream of being nuns.

10. We have weird traditions.

This one is actually true. But nobody gets them, not even us.

11. We are all boring and stuck-up.

We all have respect for each other, and we know when to have fun too.

12. The school is run by nuns, who beat us with rulers and belts.

Really? You really think that happens? Just go home.

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.
