25 Signs You Went To An All-Girls Private School

The things you loved, hated, and couldn't live without.

25 Signs You Went To An All-Girls Private School

Going to an all-girls school was confusing and amazing all at the same time, with the uniforms, the no boys and the unbelievable girls that you spend four years with.

1. You never understood how people in public school didn't know EVERYONE in their class.

How do you go around not saying hi to everyone as you walk down the hall?!

2. You all accepted the fact that you cant make Bermuda shorts and polos cute.

3. Which led to a ridiculous amount of matching with other girls.

4. You gave up trying to look presentable after freshman year.

There came a point in time that make-up wasn't worth it and trying to actually match your pants to your polo was too time consuming and sleeping in was 100% more satisfying than doing your hair every morning. Like who are you going to impress, the other girls?

5. Dances were eye-opening because you realized that everyone could actually look like girls.

6. Your best friend's houses varied from 10 minutes, 30 minutes or an hour away.

Planning things in advanced as pivotal, because you never knew when you would be able to hang out outside of school again.

7. Your whole school kept J. Crew, the Gap, and Sperry in business.

When all you can wear are Bermuda shorts, cardigans, and khakis there aren't many options.

8. Wearing your uniform outside of school was dangerous because every public school hated you.

9. If some drama happened on Monday, everybody knew by Tuesday.

10. Including the teachers.

11. Even if you've graduated, you still hear about high school drama.

12. Seeing boys from public school with facial hair was like seeing grown men walking around.

13. You still hate your old rival private school (and always will).

14. There were always the girls that forgot about the scheduled dress-down days that everyone felt bad for.

15. Your classes were so small that once you got to college, you felt lost.

16. You also had no idea what to wear once you got to college.

Wait, you mean that you have to plan your OWN outfits!?

17. The highlight of graduating was being able to follow your teachers on social media.

We bothered them for years about following us and the answer was ALWAYS the same, "once you graduate,", so once those caps were thrown into the air that follow button was pushed.

18. Seeing a boy was like seeing an alien for the first time.

19. "Are you all lesbian?"

20. Everyone knew each other since kindergarten.

21. The two months before homecoming the most social time of the year (date time).

22. Football games were the highlight of the year because you actually got to hang out with boys and have a social life.

23. Your high school will ALWAYS be a part of you.

24. Graduation was bittersweet because you knew it was the last time that your whole class would be together.

25. You hated it in the moment, but high school was some of the best moments of your life.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
