Being home from college in the summer is a total stay-cation. Partially relaxing, partially boring, mostly adjusting to a totally different lifestyle than living in your dorm at school. Some of your friends have great internships, some have classic summer jobs, some are hanging out at the beach, and others are hanging home. Whatever category you fall into, "New Girl" feels you. Here's 13 times "New Girl" perfectly described being home for summer break.

1. When you have your first home-cooked meal in forever

2. Running into high schoolers around town



3. When your siblings don't understand your dire need for personal space



4. When your parents say that you need to get out more



5. Trying to actually get out more



6. Trying to be adventurous with your friends



7. When all your friends are off from work on the same day



8. When people try to ask you about your future life plans



9. Trying to be helpful around the house (and somehow failing)



10. When you wanna go to music festivals but your bank account is suffering

6 Things You Should Know About The Woman Who Can't Stand Modern Feminism

Yes, she wants to be heard too.

2018 is sort of a trap for this woman. She believes in women with all of the fire inside of her, but it is hard for her to offer support when people are making fools of themselves and disguising it as feminism.

The fact of the matter is that women possess qualities that men don't and men possess qualities that women don't. That is natural. Plus, no one sees men parading the streets in penis costumes complaining that they don't get to carry their own fetus for nine months.

1. She really loves and values women.

She is incredibly proud to be a woman.

She knows the amount of power than a woman's presence alone can hold. She sees when a woman walks into a room and makes the whole place light up. She begs that you won't make her feel like a "lady hater" because she doesn't want to follow a trend that she doesn't agree with.

2. She wants equality, too

She has seen the fundamental issues in the corporate world, where women and men are not receiving equal pay.

She doesn't cheer on the businesses that don't see women and men as equivalents. But she does recognize that if she works her butt off, she can be as successful as she wants to.

3. She wears a bra.

While she knows the "I don't have to wear a bra for society" trend isn't a new one, but she doesn't quite get it. Like maybe she wants to wear a bra because it makes her feel better. Maybe she wears a bra because it is the normal things to do... And that's OK.

Maybe she wants to put wear a lacy bra and pretty makeup to feel girly on .a date night. She is confused by the women who claim to be "fighting for women," because sometimes they make her feel bad for expressing her ladyhood in a different way than them.

4. She hates creeps just as much as you do. .

Just because she isn't a feminist does not mean that she is cool with the gruesome reality that 1 in 5 women are sexually abused.

In fact, this makes her stomach turn inside out to think about. She knows and loves people who have been through such a tragedy and wants to put the terrible, creepy, sexually charged criminals behind bars just as bad as the next woman.

Remember that just because she isn't a feminist doesn't mean she thinks awful men can do whatever they want.

5. There is a reason she is ashamed of 2018's version of feminism.

She looks at women in history who have made a difference and is miserably blown away by modern feminism's performance.

Not only have women in the past won themselves the right to vote, but also the right to buy birth control and have credit cards in their names and EVEN saw marital rape become a criminal offense.

None of them dressed in vagina costumes to win anyone over though... Crazy, right?

6. She isn't going to dress in a lady parts costume to prove a point.

This leaves her speechless. It is like the women around her have absolutely lost their minds and their agendas, only lessening their own credibility.

"Mom, what are those ladies on TV dressed up as?"

"Ummm... it looks to me like they are pink taco's honey."

She loves who she is and she cherished what makes her different from the men around her. She doesn't want to compromise who she is as a woman just so she can be "equal with men."

12 Questions To Ask Before You Sign A Lease For An Apartment

College students are still trying to figure out the 'adult world' and may not know all the questions to ask before signing a lease for an apartment or house. I'm here to help.

Going off to college is one of the single most exciting things to happen to teenagers. You're going to be on your own (no curfews, woo!) and you're overwhelmed with things you're going to learn and do. So many life experiences are about to come your way. However, some of those life experiences aren't the fun kind. They're the 'learn from my mistakes' kind. I was lucky enough to have parents to help guide me through finding an apartment and what questions to ask my landlord before I signed the lease. Not everyone is as lucky as me, though. So here's 12 questions I think all people should ask their landlord before signing that lease.

1. Are utilities included in the rent?

A lot of apartments or houses advertise these low prices for rent, 'ONLY $325 A MONTH' but that's how they trick you. The rent is so cheap because you have to pay your own water, electricity, garbage, you get the idea. It adds up. Be sure to clarify this because you may think this apartment/house is a steal, when in reality, it's just regularly priced.

2. What is the grace period for rent and how can I pay?

Most places allow a 5 day grace period for rent. Say rent is due the first of every month, but most places won't place a late fee until the fifth. Which, if you're like me and bad at planning and don't happen to have the cash on the first, that is such a RELIEF. Also, some places have an online website where you can pay so you don't have to worry about writing a check and dropping it off during office hours.

3. Does the landlord require renter's insurance?

My first apartment I lived in didn't require renter's insurance, honestly I didn't even know what that was. However, my current apartment does. At first I was confused and kind've annoyed that I had to purchase this insurance but after thinking about it and discussing it with my parents, I'm really happy it's required. Now if someone in my apartment decides to forget that a candle is lit next to their books and the building catches fire, I have insurance on all my belongings.

4. Are pets allowed and is there a pet deposit?

Many college students get a pet while they're in college. A pet is a friend who won't change majors or transfer to a new college and who will love you unconditionally. However, not all apartments allow pets and of those that do, most ask for a pet deposit AND charge extra on rent per month per pet. So make sure to do your research and find if you're getting the best deal for your little buddy. Another thing to look for: is there grass near my apartment/house where I can walk my dog and let them use the bathroom.

5. Am I promised parking?

College makes students vicious about parking. And if you're spending all day fighting over a parking spot and then still walking 10 minutes to campus, you don't want to go home and have to fight over parking there, too. Make sure there's plenty of parking at the place you're looking at and that parking is promised in your lease.

6. Can I have guest stay and where can they park?

College also means SLUMBER PARTIES WHENEVER YOU WANT! Staying up all night gossiping and drinking wine is one of the best ways to spend the night with a BFF in college, but you want to make sure your friend can park at your new place. The worst thing is inviting someone over and waking up to their car being booted. A lot of places allow guest passes from the front office or have specific parking for visitors. Make sure to ask, though. You don't want to sign a lease and then find out that guest aren't allowed. BUMMER!

7. What happens if I need to terminate my lease early?

We all hope for a smooth ride through college, but sometimes life happens and you have to deal with it. That might even mean having to leave college and move home for a bit, maybe even in the middle of the semester. Be prepared and make sure to ask your landlord the conditions for early termination or if it's even possible. Most places won't allow an early termination, but they will allow someone to sublease for you. Always ask! You never know what life is going to throw at you.

8. Is there a maintenance man and how long does he usually take to fix a request?

If you're like me, you have bad luck and things constantly break. If you're a lot like me, you're also clueless on how to fix ANYTHING. That's why anywhere I live, there needs to be a maintenance man who I can call to come when I'm panicked because my washing machine isn't working. Living somewhere where there's a maintenance man makes all the difference to me, but also ask how long it usually takes to fill out orders or else you'll end up with a broken AC that doesn't get fixed for three weeks in the middle of summer.

9. What is forbidden?

Some apartments/houses don't allow nails in the wall, posters being hung up, things being mounted to the wall, you get the idea. Each place has their own set of rules of what is forbidden and they absolutely don't allow. Make sure that these rules are clear before you sign or else you'll end up with an accidental hefty fee.

10. Which furnishings and appliances are included?

Like I mentioned earlier, some apartments/houses seem like a steal because rent is so cheap! Another reason rent can be so cheap is because they don't come with ANY appliances, so counting rent you also have to go buy a fridge, a microwave, a toaster, an oven, a washing machine, a dryer....it adds up, guys. This is one of the biggest things to ask because any appliances that come with the apartment, it's the apartments job to replace when they break.

11. Is the landlord allowed to enter your apartment without your permission?

Hidden deep in your lease agreement could be a sentence saying that the landlord is allowed to enter your apartment/house with no warning or permission needed. CHECK FOR THAT AND ASK! I don't know about you, but I'd like a warning before someone comes into my place.

12. How's the crime in the neighborhood?

Last but not least, always ask the landlord and any current tenants how the crime in the area is. A place can seem really nice and safe during the day but once night hits it can become an area full of break ins and robberies. Always drive by your potential living place at night to see how the area seems before signing that lease.
