7 Friends Every College Girl Finds And Keeps In Her Life, No Exceptions
Kat Devine

Everyone you meet in college is different. People come into your life for different reasons, and they bring different things.

But each of your friends, no matter how different, is a special and important part of your life and college experience.

1. The Friend From Home You Don’t Talk to a Ton but Still Love

When you go to school far away from each, there’s bound to be a little distance. You might not talk every day, but you always make sure to catch up and hang out when you’re home. Plus, none of your college friends will share the same obsession with your favorite hometown bagel place.

2. The First Semester Freshman Friends

Sometimes they stay and sometimes they don’t, but every freshman has those first semester friends. You meet them in the first few days of college and they’re your go-tos for the rest of the semester. And if you’re lucky and find good ones, they’ll be around for the next four, too.

3. The Best Friend From Home

It doesn’t matter how far away from you this person is at any given moment because they’re still your best friend no matter what. You have a long AF snapchat streak, they’re the first person you see every time you go home, and you’ve gone to visit each other on at least one occasion. This friend knows the names of all your other friends because they’re the person you can tell shit to 24/7.

4. The Friend You Make by Sitting Next to Them in Class

This friend is the girl or boy you sat next to on the first day of your random ass gen-ed requirement class. You complain about the professor together, maybe work on group projects together, and send each other notes when one of you misses class. At the end of the semester, they’ll probably fade into the void, but they’re still pretty cool and you say hi to each other on campus.

5. The Crew of People in Your Major

College is f*cking hard. Regardless of your major, you’ll take some challenging classes and face some difficult obstacles. This group will be the backbone of your academic career. You’ll struggle together, cry over tests and labs together, and if you’re like me, you’ll all go through clinicals together. By the end of your four years together you’ll watch each other walk across the stage to collect the diplomas that you slaved for, and it’ll all be worth it.

6. The True Ride or Die Best Friend

You might call a lot of people your best friends, but in reality there’s always one or two that are true, real, honest to God ride or die best friends. These girls will cheer you up, cry with you, pig out with you, take care of you, hate boys with you, find boys with you, study with you, and literally everything in between. You’d give your life for them and they’d do the same because they’ll be your bridesmaids in a few years, the fun aunt to your future children, and the women you’ll be causing trouble with well into your golden years.

7. The Whole Damn Squad

These friends are your family away from family. You’ve got a giant ass group chat with all of you, your instagram is scattered with pictures of all of you, you all roll up to the parties together and drag each others stupid asses all over the place. If you don’t already live together, you probably will within the next year or two, and only God knows how much of a mess that’s going to be.

You'll never experience anything like college. It's crazy, it's fun, it's messy, and it's some of the best years of your life. And you'll never forget the friends you spent it with.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
