Total WASP move.

19 Things White People Like

Now, before y’all go and completely trash me on the internet for my white fragility or whatever it is (I know I’m fragile but it’s not because I’m white), just know this article is supposed to be lighthearted and fun. Now that I’ve stated the obvious, let me begin.

1.Base Tans

We get so freaking white in the winter that we actually have to work on a “base tan” so we don’t fry. You have to get tan to tan.

2. Virtue signaling

It goes something like, “Yes, I’m white, but no I’m not racist. I voted for Obama.” Most white people aren’t racist but we can always count on, like, 1% of white people to be racist enough to make us all look racist.

3. Elevated surfaces

You know the ones who do off-the-wall mess that makes you question their sanity. What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the words “sky diving?” That goes for other thrill seeking nonsense like jumping off cliffs, base jumping, or anything that involves jumping off or out of things you shouldn’t... including tables, bars and chairs.

4. Running to the worst possible place in horror movies

It’s a great idea to run to the graveyard or abandoned shack when a murderous ax slinger is after you.

5. Brunch

What white person doesn’t like brunch? It’s breakfast AND lunch. It’s so sophisticated.

6. Country Music

We really love us some good ole country music. We love singing about small towns even though we grew up in country club in Florida.

7. Alternative music

We love angsty music about unrequited love by a band whose name resembles a mad lib.

8. Soccer

It’s like the only sport white people are good at. And golf.

9. Golf tournaments

I don’t know why but golf tournaments are actually really fun.

10. Pastel colors

11. Winery Tours

You bet your sweet behind I’m going on a wine tour after I get mimosas at brunch for my 21st birthday.

12. Monograms

Whoever came up with monograms lived with sisters who like to steal clothes.

13. Vineyard Vines and Lilly Pulitzer

14. Jacked up trucks

I don’t understand the allure of having a truck you have to use a step stool to get in, but my high school was full of them.

15. Old Row and TFM/TSM

Not gonna lie, I’ve sent in pics to Old Row. I can’t say any of them have made it, but I tried and that’s enough for me.

16. Shonda Rhimes’ shows

White girls live for "Grey’s Anatomy" and "Scandal." We aspire to be Meredith Grey and Olivia Pope

17. OTBTS, Birkenstocks, and Chacos

I couldn't understand why anyone with eyeballs would wear these shoes, but now I'm mourning the loss of my Chacos and looking into buying some Birks and OTBTs.

18. Mission trips to impoverished places

19. The Confederate Flag

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
