20 Things People Say When They Find Out You Are From Florida

1. So, you must be used to the heat?

Yeah, I prefer to be outside when it is 102 degrees, it’s really relaxing when I am covered in sweat and can’t breathe. We just use air conditioning…

2. How far are you from Miami?

Because this one time you went to Miami for spring break, so you can use that piece of information to pinpoint where I’m from?

3. Do you go to Disney, like, all the time?

You have probably gone to Disney more than I have…

4. Do you go to beach every day?

Ain’t nobody got time for that. As much as I would love to, the afternoon storms and the tourists (you) tend to get in the way of making that a reality.

5. Florida is not really southern, right?

Maybe not where you have vacationed, but the rebel flags in my high school parking lot would argue otherwise. So will the excessive amounts of sweet tea and grits- not that I’m complaining.

6. Oh, my grandparents live there!

I am sure they do. Please recommend that they retake their driver’s tests.

7. Wow, so hurricanes must be really scary.

When they hit, the answer is yes. The great thing about hurricanes is that we get a pretty big warning about their arrival, and then we stock up on snacks.

8. My friend lives in Florida!

9. Have you ever seen an alligator?

Yeah, I have. No, I would not attempt to “wrestle” one of those horrendous dinosaurs.

10. You are not that tan!

I’m sorry I failed you.

11. So global warming…

…Is definitely a thing.

12. Your state is so screwed up with elections.

Don’t hate on the individuality of my state.

13. Don’t you just want a white Christmas?

We have one every year! It’s called sand.

14. Do you get annoyed with tourists?


15. What are those bugs called that get all over your car on the interstate?

Lovebugs. The next time you say Florida doesn’t have comprehensive sex ed, please reflect on these creatures and the education many of us have gained from them.

16. Does everyone have a pool?

Pretty much.

17. Spring Break must be so convenient!

It is, except for the fact that my plane ticket home skyrockets because you want to get wasted on the beach.

18. Are you a [insert random sports team here] fan?

We have a lot of sports.

19. Do you wear flipflops everywhere?


20. Have you heard of Florida Man?

Are you trying to embarrass me?

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.
