What Having A Girl Squad Really Means

It's not like Taylor Swift's Squad, but it's better

What Having A Girl Squad Really Means
Kenzie Dicken

Ever since the appearance of Taylor Swift's girl gang in 2015, the world has been abuzz with the importance of having strong female friendships in your life. What was once seen as a toxic group of women competing, is now seen as an essential survival tactic. The importance of having women in your life that support you and understand you is beyond important. Having people you can always text about bra or "bruh" issues will always be essential. But, what exactly is the purpose of a girl group?

1. Support

The first and foremost essential part of a girl group is supporting one another. All of the natural competitive instincts are taken away for a climate of acceptance and love.

2. Someone to do fun things with

Having a group of girls to hit up with a "what are you doing text?" is essential to college survival.

3. Beauty Tips

Look, one of the girls in my squad is a flawless MUA who literally runs circles around everyone with a foundation brush. I look like a baby applying lipstick for the first time. Everyone has their place. I just wish that I had the natural talents of the MUA....

4. Cry Sessions

I have had my fair share of guy trouble recently. But, my girls are there. And I am there for them when ex-boyfriends decide to not take a hint and keep showing up. I can openly cry in front of my squad and that is more valuable than words honestly.

5. Someone to binge watch television with

I recently convinced the squad to watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend with Me on Netflix and now I finally have someone to text about my constant frustrations with this show (My evil plan is complete!!!).

6. Someone to indulge in healthy (and unhealthy) behaviors with

There was one night where we worked out for five hours and then went to my apartment and ordered a crazy amount of pizza and watched Legally Blonde together. Life is all about balance and having friends to balance with never goes out of style.

7. An extra pair of eyes

When your girl hits you up with "Have you see these salt and pepper shakers anywhere?" at 5 am with a picture from Gilmore Girls, you drop everything and immediately start googling. Because you know that she would do the same for you. I cannot emphasize the importance of a judgment free zone is in this instance.

8. Other women who accept you for who you are

Having a group of friends that cheer you on when you fart in the middle of a yoga class are the best kind of friends. But then, if they give you crap about it for months after, that squad is inevitably going to exist for life. It's science.

9. Someone to visit during long summer breaks and travel buddies

When your summer seems to go on endlessly, just remember, you'll be hitting up your homies in San Francisco soon enough. Have no fear, the Bay Area is near.

10. Magic

Look, it doesn't make sense to normal people who do not have a squad, but there is something simply magical about constantly having a group of girls that supports you. It truly is magical and an essential part of any woman's survival. These friendships are natural and everlasting. Do not ever take them for granted but know that they certainly exist for a reason.

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.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
