20 Stages Of A Period Every Girl Experiences

Making jokes about menstrual cycles are not funny. Period.

20 Stages Of A Period Every Girl Experiences

Every month women go through a week of hell when our uterus has a Texas Chainsaw Massacre going on down there. I say this in the nicest way possible, but it is gross. When I say "gross," I mean we are wonderfully disgusting. To accurately describe what women go through, these 20 images should paint the picture for you. Let's find humor in our tragedy ladies!

1. Pre-period cramps are the start of it

These are such a tease.

2. Some of us get our periods early

I wasn't prepared for this! Now I have to change my outfit and go to the store and buy tampons!

3. Some of us get it late

Always ready to jump to conclusions, even after only being late by one day.

4. And some of us get it on time


5. Then you actually get your period

Fair warning, stay away!

6. And you become an emotional wreck

One second you're happy and then you're sad.

7. And then you become angry about everything

Uh oh...

8. Then you consume everything in sight

And you are happy again... but not for long.

9. And become so bloated

Me: I'm not that bloated Inner Me: You're fatter than a cow

10. And nothing fits

*Wears same two pairs of sweats and leggings all week*

11. And you have to avoid whites and bright colored clothes

All black everything or nothing.

12. And you can't get comfortable at night

Cranky B alert!

13. There's always a risk of staining your underwear

You got this girl. Legs closed tight together and waddle your way to the bathroom.

14. And don't even get me started on your mortal enemy: sneezing

Damn it! Not again!

15. But don't forget about your pimples

They're the worst. They spawn on your face, chest, and even down under. Ugh.

16. At the end of the week, sometimes we think our periods are over

It's too good to be true.

17. And then...

They're not.

18. When they finally end, we couldn't be happier

Happy dance your butt off!

19. Sometimes people get lucky and their period ends before an important event

This never happens for me...

20. And then there are people who barely experience any of these symptoms...

Screw you.

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.
