15 Things That Make Girls Cry

Not going to lie, I teared up writing this article...

15 Things That Make Girls Cry

First of all, this article is not meant to insult women because crying is not a weakness. I’d like to believe I’m a strong and independent woman, but that doesn’t mean I don’t occasionally cry at some of the dumbest things. We’re human and have feelings; sometimes too many feelings. There are times where we just can't help but shed a few tears, sometimes even when there’s no good reason to. There are some things that will make girls cry every time; whether it’s sad or happy, it doesn’t matter. Here’s a list of those things. Warning: proceed with caution.

1. Puppies/kittens/any baby animals.

This also includes any pictures or videos of a baby animal. These sloths could bring a girl to tears.

2. Babies.

Their squeezable cheeks switch on the waterworks.

3. When men cry.

This is a biggie, especially when our dads cry. It makes our hearts break.

4. Videos of soldiers coming home.

Gets me every time. Even if I've seen this video five times.

5. Videos of dogs greeting returning soldiers.

This is 10 times worse, which means 10 times more tears.

6. Weddings.

I once spent two hours watching random people's weddings on YouTube. This is arguably the best one.


Elderly couples.

Weddings are beautiful, but long marriages give us hope.

8. Reminiscing.

Sleepovers when we were 12 and get-togethers at 20 haven't changed much because story time always goes like this: "Remember that time when..."

9. Goodbyes.

Or even long-overdue hellos.

10. Sappy endings.

Girls love their romance novels and chick flicks. We rate the book or movie based on how hard we cried at the ending. No tears? Zero out of 10.

11. When anything is over.

Not only relationships and friendships that hurt to let go, but this could be the smallest of things, like finishing a Netflix series. Don't risk bringing up the last episode of "Gossip Girl" or "One Tree Hill."

12. Too much of any emotion.

We'll cry from frustration or from laughing too hard. We like to keep everyone on their toes.

13. Too drunk.

Too much alcohol makes us cry too. Try to keep us on the dance floor to avoid this one.

14. Food.

Or is this just me? #sorrynotsorry.

15. Anything during our time of the month.

This just about covers everything else.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
