Formal Season: As Told By "Gossip Girl"

It only comes but twice a year

Formal Season: As Told By "Gossip Girl"

Ah.. the sweet smell of formal season. The even sweeter sight of spray tans, blowouts, and manicures. There's no season quite like formal season. It seems like every night someone is all dressed up, going to some formal somewhere fancy. And who would be better to illustrate a fancy event than the cast of "Gossip Girl."

When you see the first Instagram with the “#formalszn.”

Your friends try to convince you to go to your third formal in one week.

Your friend won’t stop talking about how great of a time she had at the formal you didn’t get invited to.

You tell your best friend that your date bailed on you, last minute.

Trying to find a new date.

Expectations of how your date will look at you.

How he actually looks at you.

When you’re sore after squatting in a picture for the eight millionth time.

“Who ate all of those chicken nuggets?”

Someone tries to cut you in the bathroom line.

“How many drinks have you had?”

When they make the last call for buses, but the DJ puts on yet another absolute jam.

Recapping the night at breakfast the next morning.

You realize how much time you spent looking through pictures the next day.

When you realize the next season after formal season is finals season.

May the odds be ever in your favor, formal-goers. Finals are awaiting.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
