How to Play the Girl Card Right

Keep Up With The Boys Without Turning Into One.


Hanging with the guys can be tricky.

These tips will help you play your cards right.

1. The "I'm like one of the boys" card.

Guys love it when girls aren’t afraid to mess up their manicure and roll around in the dirt. Throw in a few light cuss words and laugh a little. Act like one of the guys.

Play this card with guy friends or a potential new man in your life. Most guys will let their guard down when they can relate to you unless he is Edward Cullen and loves you so much but secretly wants to drink your blood. 

2. This tip will save your entire hand.

When I said roll around in the dirt, don’t take it to the next level of manliness. Guys don’t find it attractive when girls eat like they haven’t seen food in years or have armpit hair longer than theirs. Make sure your presence as a woman is still known. This is not one of the girl cards to play, but a tip that'll save your entire hand: don’t be one of the guys.

3.The "I'm a lady, but I am a down-to earth human" card

Let’s say you chug a beer with one of the guys and an incredibly loud burp rolls out. Follow it up with an “Omg, eww, excuse me, that never happens!” and you've played this card. And if you still feel totally like a dude, apply some lipgloss or throw in a hair flip. Nothing screams girl more than make-up and playing with your hair. Always counter-balance your inner bro-side and outer femininity.

4. The "I'm not like every other girl" card

This common card is a bluff most guys fall for. Pet peeve number one of most guys is when girls hate each other and make it known. If you don’t like a girl because she is a slut or a stuck-up broad, just be nice. Kill with kindness. And most likely, if the girl is as bad as you know she is, you will be able to listen to the guys talk about her when she leaves. 

5. The "but I'm still a girl card".

Let’s face it. Guys do not want to lose. Guys like to think they can win everything whether us girls are “decent” or not. During a competitive game, start to lose a little. When their confidence is up, make a mistake. For instance, if you are playing darts and he is winning, don’t steal his thunder. Instead, miss completely and ask for a redo with a sly smile on your face.  Nine out of ten times he will let you. It’s a win-win situation; the boys have their ego intact and the ladies know they are the reason for it. 

6. The "subtle miss independent" card

This may seem counter-intuitive considering the previous point, but I’m not telling you to belt out Kelly Clarkson’s “Miss Independent” song. Yes guys like it when girls need them, but they also like girls to want them. Show that you are accomplishing your goals without a man’s help. Don’t dumb yourself down to bimbo status or appear to not have a single muscle in your body. Sure, ask for the buff guy next door to help move in your furniture. Make sure you are carrying the other side of the couch with him.  Don’t be afraid to show some independence.

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.

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.
