11 Different Types Of Girls You See At Formal (Even If They’re All Wearing Basically the Same Dress)

Whatever you do, please don't be the Sad Boi

11 Different Types Of Girls You See At Formal (Even If They’re All Wearing Basically the Same Dress)
Alison Nieto

Spring has arrived, finals are in the near future, but above all else, formal season is here! Whether or not you're a jumpsuit kinda gal, here is a comprehensive list of all the people you'll probably see at your spring formal.

The One Who Pregamed WAY Too Hard

You know who they are and can spot them from a million miles away. Sure, we ALL like a good pregame before heading out to the venue, especially if you're not 21. But most of us like to make it to the venue and remember it, maybe buy a drink or two there. Calm down, my friend, there is plenty of time to drink responsibly at the event without puking all over your date's shoes. Class it up.

 The Sad Boi

Some people become the life of the party when they drink. Others just get really freaking sad. You know, the person who's crying at the table about they're ex-S.O. never really loved them, or they'll never find love or really anything. Sometimes you're that person. Lend them a hand if you see them this time around.

The Party Animal

Contrary to the Sad Boi, the Party Animal is the person who wants everyone dancing, no matter how badly your shoes hurt. They're definitely the person in the middle of the dance floor, breaking it down to "Every Time We Touch" while throwing back another drink.

The Table Top Dancer

They're like the Party Animal, only on a table.

The Photographer

There's always one person who brings a professional camera to the venue and spends the entire evening shooting pictures of their friends. You can usually find them by following the camera flash around the venue. Be friends with this person, you could use some solid pictures to spice up your Instagram feed. Plus, how often are you dressed up that nice?

The Couple

There are always those couples who are basically attached at the hip. If you see one half, the other is usually not far away. It's cute but definitely doesn't help the Sad Boi be less sad. They always come out with really awesome pictures though.

Everyone’s Best Friend

Don't even bother trying to find this person, because they are bouncing around the venue from group to group saying hi to everyone they know.

The Mom Friend

This is the person who walks around with water the entire night, not only just for themselves, but for all their friends who definitely drank too much. They're the person who left Powerade and pretzels on their desk for when they get home.

The One Who Wants to Fight Everyone

Alright, some people get sad when they're drunk. Others get really happy. Still, there are those who just really wanna fight people. Don't be that person. Don't let your friends be that person. Fighting isn't fun for anyone.

The One Who Stays By The Food

One of the best things about formal is that sometimes, the venue has really awesome food (the fan favorite is chicken nuggets). Some people are really excited about the bar aspect of formal. Others park themselves right next to the table being filled with fresh chicken nuggets. They have their priorities straight.

The Girl Who Compliments Everyone In The Bathroom

Some girls get so nice when they drink. There's always one at every party who you meet in the bathroom. Sometimes you're crying about your ex (because he's a jerk) and she's the girl to give you the pep talk you need to wipe off your mascara and get back on the dance floor with your friends.

Formals are great. They're an opportunity to dress up, have a couple drinks and laugh with your friends. It's a time to shoot your shot with that girl you've wanted to talk to since, like, forever. Whichever person you end up being at formal, please follow the one rule: don't be a dick.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
