20 Ways To Win Over The Midwestern College Girl's Heart

I would just settle for some Culver's deep fried cheese curds and a movie, but occasionally we demand more

20 Ways To Win Over The Midwestern College Girl's Heart

I would marry the man who did five things on this list. Mostly seduction by food.

1. Tell me I look beautiful in my crew neck sweater. I may look like a slightly puffy marshmallow for the next 6 months while we live in arctic hell, but tell me I'm still beautiful under it all.

2. Buy me some good beer. Non-midwesterners might appreciate a gimlet, but I would rather have a seasonal Leinkugels.

3. Offer to spend a lazy winter Sunday in bed with hot chocolate and Netflix. It's too cold to actually go out on real-world dates so let me stay warm and be my big spoon.

4. Plan a spontaneous hiking trip at the lake. Just give me a chance to put on my lulu's and Nikes and make it an Instagram-worthy day.

5. Take me to Steak 'n Shake. While fancy dates in the city are always appreciated, I have a soft spot for super crispy fries dipped in a chocolate shake.

6. Tolerate the crazy. Midwestern girls are famed for being nice (except this writer), but if you let them lose at a tailgate or bar during game day you may have found yourself with a new person.

7. Let me win at bags ("cornhole," if we're being proper). I might not be as good at it as you, but you can let me take the winning throw.

8. Seduce me with ranch dressing, i.e. the nectar of the gods. Cheese is an acceptable second.

9. De-ice my car for me in the morning or shovel my driveway. I won't be able to thank you enough.

10. Get really, really "lost" in a corn maze with me. wink wink.

11. Buy me a Northface or Patagonia during the winter; it may be the second best thing to an engagement ring.

12. Air-lift in Portillos for me when I'm having a bad day (a girl can dream, can't she?).

13. Offer to get some Cortizone for my bug bites in the summer. Take it up a notch and apply it yourself.

14. Don't get mad at me when I keep your sweater with your letters. Think of it as you keeping me warm when you're not there.

15. Actually cheer on my team (or at least fake it) in the Big Ten. Rivalries may be fierce, but I'll think you're a better person because of it.

16. Plan a romantic weekend up north complete with a bonfire, stargazing and canoeing.

17. Tell me my accent is cute, even though I say words obnoxiously with hard A's.

18. Allergy season is every season, but when you check the pollen levels on a spring morning and surprise me with some Claritin or Zyrtec, my sinuses will thank you.

19. Fried cheese curds. Everywhere. At any time. Put them in my line of sight and I'm instantly a happier person.

20. Tell me, even when I'm snotty and gross because it's -15 degrees out and I've got a cold and look like a ratchet piece of crap, that I always look beautiful. White lies are the corner stone of a healthy relationship.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
