15 Things Girls Will Relate To If Most Of Their Friends Are Dudes

If you're like me, you can count on one hand how many boyfriends you've ever had in your entire life. That being said, you need every phalange on your hands to count the amount of guy friends you have. They are the best even when they are being the worst and here are the 15 things girls can relate to when they have guy friends.

1. They give the best guy advice.

Sometimes it may be a bit blunt, but you can always count on them to be honest with you about how a rejected call means "he's just not that into you".

2. They are the brother(s) you never had.

I grew up with one sister and adore keeping my guy friends as close to my heart as she is.

3. You can be your true self.

No makeup, no bra, no problem for your relationship. You love being able to chill, burp, and swear as much as you want because they're doing the same.

4. They will buy you beer and wings because they want them too.

Preferably a nice IPA, but Busch and Coors will do just fine. Also, any type of junk food on game day is always an option for your guys.

5. They are always down to see the latest James Bond, DC Comics, or Marvel films.

These films involve hot guys, action, killer music, and did I mention hot guys. Throw in some Bond girls and you have a winning combination for a movie date for you both.

6. Sports and your guy friend go together like PB&J.

Any sporting event is 10 times better when you have someone to talk crap with.

7. They can encourage you to talk to any new guy at the bar.

They are your Yoda and give you all the confidence to talk to that really hot stock broker at the end of the bar.

8. They introduce you to new drinks (Hello, whiskey!)

When vodka doesn't cut it anymore, count on your guy friend to give you some whiskey on the rocks or a classic Jack and Coke.

9. Heated arguments are the best.

Politics, sports, and even fashion can start off calm and turn into a level-5 storm in less than a minute.

10. Your grudges last about as long as a commercial break.

You fight just like brother and sister but you can never be mad at them for longer than a day.

11. Your parents can't seem to understand why you won't date them.

They're attractive, you're attractive, so why can't you guys try dating? Mom and Dad, us dating would be like my dating cousin Bobby..ew.

12. That reason being: You have already dated and it never worked out.

One of my best guy friends and I dated briefly when we are freshmen. Luckily, feelings were never established enough for us to hate each other after we ended things. We found that even though it didn't work out romantically, we still liked each other on a platonic level.

13. You want them to set you up with their cute friends.

What better way to be un-single than to have your bestie set you up. You trust their opinion and if they're already friends, you know he's a good guy.

14. And they want you to set them up with your cute friends.

Just because you guys won't date, doesn't mean you're friends can't! When it's successful, you're the one who gets to speak at their wedding and tell all the incriminating stories about them to the wedding party!

15. Finally: They're the best shoulder to cry on.

They are always there when you need them and though they may speak a few words, they are the words you need to hear.

All the guys out there who have girls that are friends, let me be the first one to thank you for all the hard work you do for us. You are amazing and we love our brothers from another more than all the beer and wings in the world combined.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
