The Nitty Gritty Of Being A Christmas Baby

You ever forget that people are born before, on and after Christmas? Yes, probably. Well, being a Christmas baby myself, not born on Christmas but after, I know the inside scoop on being born within the Christmas season and how we Christmas babies celebrate our birthdays while competing with Christmas. Here it goes.

1. We have to compete with Santa and Jesus

Your birthday is overshadowed by the Christmas holiday season. If you're lucky, you share your birthday with Jesus and Santa always attends your party.

2. Combined gifts

With everyone spending so much during the Christmas season, you sometimes get one gift for both your birthday and Christmas from friends and family. Fun!

3. Your family and friends are always around on your birthday

Your birthday always brings people together, whether it's for Christmas or not, your family and friends can't make an excuse for not coming to your birthday since it falls around Christmas which is great. Your birthday brings everyone together.

4. If you are born on Christmas, everyone will remember your birthday because they have to

If they forget, they aren't a real one.

5. One time of the year is really fun, and the rest of the year is just regular days

You get to celebrate Christmas and your birthday around the same time, and then the rest of the year just consists of regular days. You have one season to look forward to and that's Christmas season cause both Christmas and your birthday happen. You have to celebrate the season extra cause this is your time to shine since the rest of the year drags.

6. Never celebrating a birthday during the school year, ever.

Your birthday always falls in the holiday break while you're growing up, so you never get the true experience of a school birthday. Sometimes I wish I knew what a school birthday was like. Us Christmas babies have never experienced that. Kind of jealous, but happy I don't have to do school work during my birthday.

7. We are CONSTANTLY reminded that "Having a December birthday must suck"

Thanks for telling us. We are the ones with the Christmas birthday, not you, now please tell us AGAIN.

8. But being a Christmas baby is okay because we have unique birthdays

At least that's what we all tell ourselves.

Be a little nicer to us Christmas babies on our birthdays. We wish we were born on a different day sometimes, but sometimes being born around Christmas is the best thing ever. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to my fellow Christmas babies out there.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

3886

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
