8 Signs You Spotted A Jersey Girl In The South

No, they're nothing like the people you see on "The Jersey Shore."

8 Signs You Spotted A Jersey Girl In The South
Things To Do In New Jersey

Leaving your hometown to go to college is always a struggle for everyone. This struggle is especially significant for any student that goes out of state for college. Becoming accustomed to a different culture is number one hard and number two hilarious. Moving to Georgia from New Jersey for college has been an interesting and beautiful experience all wrapped into one. Life is so different in the New Jersey, so here's 10 ways to spot a Jersey girl in the South.

1. They probably will have some trouble pumping gas.

In New Jersey, the pumps are not self-serving aka an attendant pumps your gas. Call us lazy but it is super convenient when it is negative degrees. So if you see a Jersey girl struggling to pump her gas lend her a hand.

2. Did you just cuss?

We tend to talk like a sailor. Sorry, not sorry.

3. This is not pizza!

Jersey pizza is like nothing in this world. Hand a Jersey girl a chain brand pizza and she probably won't talk to you ever again.

4. Yes, I am from the Jersey Shore. No, it's nothing like the T.V. show.

Don't ever ask a Jersey shore girl about the t.v. show. First of all those people are not even from the shore or even Jersey. Locals know the shore to be a beautiful coastal community, not some trashy reality show about tourists.

5. She'll be blasting Bruce Springsteen.

If New Jersey had an anthem I am sure it would be Springsteen. Don't be surprised if your Jersey friend knows all the lyrics.

6. They talk fast.

New Jersey tends to be fast pace because it is so close to NYC. If you can't keep up just ask us to slow down. Sometimes I have to remember not everyone moves at a million miles a second.

7. Wait, where is the hockey?

Sure hot places have hockey but it's just not the same. So if you see a hockey game playing in the bar you know why.

8. They are some of the best friends you will ever have.

Sure we may cuss, have an attitude, and may be the boss of things. But, a Jersey girl, especially from the shore, is down to just have a good time. We never take life too seriously and value the friendships we make. So if you meet someone on campus from Jersey get to know them, who know they could become your life long friend.

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.

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.
