Corrine On The Bachelor Makes Me Want To Scream

Corrine On The Bachelor Makes Me Want To Scream

No, you are NOT Gossip Girl.

Winter break is amazing, pure bliss on it's own, but throw in a whole new season of "The Bachelor," and I'm literally rolling in pure happiness. At first I was like, "Ew, I'm not watching, I hate Nick." But then on Monday night, out of habit probably, I turned ABC on at 8 and Nick's new facial hair hooked me.

I instantly disliked contestant Corrine during her little bio part. I mean, what adult woman has a nanny? She says she "runs" a million-dollar company, but actually I think her dad does all the work while she gets the money. Then, she got all snappy asking her parents to do things for her. If I talked to my parents like that, they'd bring out the wooden spoon.

Then, she went in for a kiss on the first night. THE FIRST NIGHT. You've known this boy for all of two minutes, and you're on TV, and there's a bunch of other girls watching you, and it's an unspoken rule that you don't go for the first kiss at the first cocktail party. It's too forward. The cocktail party is for shark costumes and uncooked hot dogs, not kissing.

Then in week two, my dislike turned to hatred. RAGING hatred, or as least as raging as it can get in front of my TV alone on a Monday night.

The first thing that got me irked was the top off thing. Like, why are you doing that? Are you really so jealous of the girl who was told she HAD to take her's off, and so insecure, that you feel like in order for Nick to like you, you have to be "brave" enough to show him your boobs? Sigh.

Then, she was SO rude at the evening part of the group date, interrupting everyone multiple times. I get it's competition and you're trying to win his heart or whatever, but c'mon, it's the first week. I know you're not there to make friends, but at least show the girls some respect by letting them talk! NOBODY interrupts my shark girl Alexis. Nobody.

Worse yet, she couldn't handle the heat herself. She can dish it, but she can't take it. When somebody re-interrupted her after she interrupted them, she burst into tears. Homegirl can't stand the heat and she needs to get out of the kitchen (or in this case the mansion). I'm still seething Nick picked her for the group date rose. He's such a boy.

What truly set me over the edge, like throw remote at the TV edge, was when Corrine quoted "Gossip Girl's" famous line after sharing no gossip at all. How dare a 24-year-old with a Nanny try to quote my favorite show. She will never be at the same level of sass and shade as Gossip Girl.

Here's hoping Nick's misplaced fondness of Corrine doesn't last long. I've already got my wine poured for the next episode, and I can't wait to see how the girls handle the petty awfulness that is Corrine.

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
