12 Things People With Curly Hair Are Tired of Hearing

No, you can't touch my hair.

1. “You should straighten it!”

If it didn’t take me about 3 hours to do, I probably would. Regardless, you probably wouldn’t even recognize me without my locks.

2. “Did you brush your hair today?”

No, I didn’t, and no, it’s not gross. Brushing my hair will make it a whole new level of frizzy. Would you rather be walking around with a friend with nice shiny locks or a friend with big poofy hair? Also, I'm pretty sure that my curls are more than capable of breaking a standard hairbrush in half, so there's that.

3. “Is it naturally curly?”

No, I wake up three hours before I have to every day and take a curling iron to my scalp just to achieve this look.

4. “Can I touch it?”

The answer to this question doesn’t even matter because I know you’re going to touch it anyway and then become disgusted when you figure out that you can’t run your fingers through it. Bye, Felicia.

5. “What products do you use?”


6. “Your hair is so exotic.”

I hear this a lot, but what does it mean? Please let me know. I'm really curious.

7. “I wish my hair was like that.”

Okay, I get it. When you curl your hair with a curling iron it falls flat after 20 minutes, no matter how much hairspray you use.

8. “You don’t wash your hair every day?”


9. You have so much hair!

I know! It’s on my head!

10. “How do you get it to look like that?”

Product, lots and lots of product.

11. “You should try doing something different with your hair.”

With curly hair, there are only two possible hairstyles: up and down. Maybe on a good day, you could get a little fancy and do a half-up, half down thing, but that’s rare.

12. “I like you better with straight hair!”

This is such a backhanded compliment. I straighten my hair once a year, maybe twice. How do you think this makes me feel?

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
