Girls have so many little tricks and secrets to get them through the day. There are things all girls just KNOW. So, if you are a boy reading this, you may end up learning some dark magic. Beware. Girls, if you don't know these things...where have you been and can I have directions to that rock you must have been living under? All jokes aside, here are 10 things all girls know to be true:

1. That one pocket in your purse...

..we know what it's for. We all put our pads and tampons in there. It's that pocket men just don't go in. I think subconsciously, they know not to venture into that black hole of feminine products. The pocket is like the gates of hell: "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." Dante Alighieri

2. That one makeup bag in your backpack that's for the same thing.

This is the bag you grab and take inconspicuously to the bathroom. We know what's in it, even if the boys will never know it's like the pocket above.

3. We all are lesbians for each other.

That guy that won't leave you alone, so your friend comes over and pretends to be your girlfriend.

4. Target is your happy place.

You never just get one thing and that five minute trip turns into a two hour shopping spree. #bankrupt

5. Ulta is for your broken heart.

Ulta is the place to go so you feel good about yourself again. It isn't about makeup or the hundreds of other beauty products...it's about being somewhere where you treat yourself and are there for you, and only you.

6. Not wanting to shave your legs in the winter...

...or any time of year. This is me once a year. I hate shaving more than you can even imagine and all girls know the debate on whether or not to shave. You WANT to wear the dress, but your legs look like this...the struggle is real, man.

7. The struggle of getting the perfect messy bun.

You try one thousand times and the one time you get it perfect, there is that ONE PIECE OF HAIR AND GODDAMN YOU, WHY!? Why can't I do it like the other girls? They make it look so easy.

8. Getting the best selfie possible in good lighting, while it lasts...

...attempt number 1,006,956 and it's still not perfect. You'll finally settle on the first one you took because you guess it passes the standards. You also leave all the others in your camera roll for a rainy day.

9. That diet that never happens...

"I'm so dieting this weekend so I can fit into my new jeans." "I'm going to do crunches so my butt looks fabulous, like Kim Kardashian's." "I'm so full I can't eat one more---is that cake?" We've all been there. We male promises to ourselves but honestly, food just makes us happy, and we won't apologize for that.

10. Leggings ARE pants...

...I don't wear the same leggings everyday. If you disagree, you can come fight me. I just have 10,000 of the same exact black leggings. I mean, you can never have enough leggings.


These are just some of the things all girls KNOW to be true.

7 Ways To Get Your Mind Off Something

"Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don't want."

Sometimes things happen that are out of our control. Troubles creep in, plans don't go the way we would have them to, and suddenly everything feels wrong and you just want to ball up and cry. While this helps to an extent, at some point you've got to stand up and remember you are more than your problems.

However, if you're anything like me, your mind always drifts back to that pain and hurt. You constantly think about that thing even when you try your hardest not to.

While they may not be a permanent cure for your problems, I have found a few temporary fixes that might help get your mind off that pain (and maybe even put a smile on your face).


1. Watch a scary movie. (or a funny one if you want to sleep tonight)

I personally am a fan of sleep, so scary movies are not my go-to. Comedy, horror, romance, really any movie. Admire how cute Tom Cruise was in Top Gun. Recite every line of the Avengers. Marathon the Harry Potter series. Seriously though, this is bound to get your mind off that problem for at least a few hours.


2. Go on an adventure (even if it is to your local Walmart).

Whether it's a planned out hiking trip with your squad in the mountains or a spontaneous midnight drive to Wendy's with your roommate for a frosty and some fries, it's going to be a good time.


3. Memes, memes, and more memes.

Who doesn't like memes? From caveman spongebob to evil kermit to JoeBama, you're guaranteed to at least crack a smile.

Laughter truly is the best medicine.


4. Retail therapy. (Even though you only have like 6 dollars in your bank account.)

Hit up the grocery and walk down your favorite snack aisle. No one will judge you for buying 3 boxes of pop-tarts (except maybe your body.) Also, never underestimate the power of trying on new clothes. Window shopping has the same effect as actual shopping, minus the bill! Seriously, even if you don't have the money to buy them, go try on those jeans that make your butt look good. Spend hours in Ulta looking at makeup and pretending you know how to apply it. Go to Hobby Lobby and pretend you know how to do arts and crafts. You'll feel great in the moment. (Make sure you have someone with you to restrict you from spending all of your money though because that will just cause you more problems later...)


5. Have a late night jam session.

Scream that Beyonce song at the top of your lungs. Sing your favorite Disney song in the shower. Watch a dance tutorial video on youtube. Memorize all the lyrics to every One Direction song ever. I promise it will be better than spending your night awake in bed overthinking all your problems.


6. Pick up a new hobby.

Go for a run, ride a bike, learn how to sew. Teach yourself a new instrument. Paint on a canvas. Make some jewelry. The list could go on and on. When you decide to try something new, you are putting your thoughts and energy into that new thing rather than the problem you are trying not to think of. So, at the same time you are trying something new, you are forgetting about that pain. Win-win situation.


6(and 1/2). Ice cream.

Enough said.


7. Look outside and smile because you're still alive and it could always be worse.

Also, take a second to think about all the people who truly care about you and want to see you happy. You are loved.

An Introvert's guide to Starkville, Mississippi

How to avoid people and still have all of the quirk and charm of Mississippi's College Town, without all the hassle.

Let's be real with each other, okay? Starkville is a town of quirky, hole in the wall shops and restaurants that can sometimes feel like a minefield of awkward social interaction if you have yet to be shown the ropes.

1. Shopping

When you are a student, it's rare to have enough room in your budget to do much anything else than watch Netflix and go to class, but on the rare occasion there are a few shops like Deep South Pout, The Lodge, Book Mart and Cafe, Aspen Bay, and Giggleswick that let you do your own casual thing.

Often times I just go to these stores to walk around, look, and just get my "human interaction" for the day. The shop workers tend to not bother you or ask too many questions, which is nice. And on the occasion that you have to leave your dorm or apartment to go get groceries, Neighborhood Market down 12 is much better and less frequent than the "big Walmart" near 25.

2. The Cotton District

Bin 612- Personally, I love a good mid-day chill here. Nothing is better than hanging out with your friends on the patio sharing a few orders of cheese fries and talking about life. What I wish I had been told earlier: The truffle cheese fries or the Buffalo Chicken cheese fries are the best and the patio is the most empty around 5 pm.

The Klaas Room- This place is good to go if you're looking to have a nice time for cheap. Me and two friends go there around six or seven pm, order a large Walk of Shame Pizza (ranch and buffalo chicken) and a mimosa tower (three liters of vodka, champagne, and orange juice) and the whole thing ends up totaling around $45 before tip. You can leave full, a little drunk, and happy for less than $20. There's also a sweet dog that comes there, her name is Luna and shes the best girl. 10/10 loves to be petted.

City Bagel- City Bagel is a great and somewhat hidden gem. My favorite part about this joint is that the owner is super nice, and sometimes even works the counter on Sunday mornings. The menu-board walks you through how to order, step by step, but it is hard to get something that's bad. The coffee is spectacular and the Italian Nights are even better. Bonus points for having the WiFi written out near the register so you don't have to have that super awkward conversation.

3. Activities

Jilly Beams Pail of Paint- This is a super cute pottery painting place near The Lodge. The staff there is very kind and helpful, but for sure will leave you alone if you look like you are keeping to yourself and not like actively on fire. Plus, you get a fun mug and some memories out of the experience.

The Refuge- To me, The Refuge is the ultimate spot for a unplug and unwind. There are a ton of walking trails, places to fish, and places to hang your hammock to just relax. I like to drive out there, sit on the edge of one of the long piers/boardwalks, turn on some music, and just reflect on things. It's also an amazing place to study for finals or dive into God's Word.

Starkville Community Market- Now, I know that this is just because I'm hopeless when it comes to living out my dreams of being that girl who reads a lot of books, goes to farmers markets and drinks enough water (LOL), but the Starkville Community Market is actually so precious. Imagine if a crafts fair and a farmers market had a baby. Then showed off that baby on Saturday mornings and Tuesday nights (helloooooo twinkly lights). It is the perfect place to walk around, get exposed to local businesses, and buy fresh produce that isn't from the side of the road.

Cotton District Arts Festival- Usually held on Super Bulldog Weekend, The CDAF is when the entire cotton district shuts down, from the bridge to Stromboli's to host a craft fair. Local artisans, painters, and businesses come out to really give a taste of Stark. Daves Dark Horse even brings their own portable wood-fired pizza oven. Even though there are major crowds, it is worth it. (like YES pet parade) There are also amazing deals to be gotten, I got six hand pressed bath bombs with natural essential oils for like $25! And they were HUGE.

4. Fancy Resturants

Veranda- This is my absolute favorite place to go in Starkville. The wait staff is almost invisible, but somehow your glass never goes empty. I like to go on a Monday night when I don't have to get dressed up but I can still feel like I fit in. The Cajun Tenders are to DIE FOR, and so is the gorgonzola salad, blackberry margarita, and the creme brulee.

Harvey's- This is like the quintessential date night spot. At first, I was really intimidated by the atmosphere and the fact that it was the only place in town Megan Mullen knew when her husband got the head coaching job, but on a Tuesday night, I got dragged in by my sister and her boyfriend and thank goodness I did. Somehow my shorts and t-shirt didn't feel so out of place. My personal recommendation is the Pimms Cup (21+) and the cajun chicken pasta. SO GOOD. And bonus points for having the table lights be made out of cowbells.
