If You Give a Girl A Golf Club

She will want a bag to go with it.

If You Give a Girl A Golf Club

I recently started golfing so I had a competitive sport to pass the time. Having played three sports in high school, I found that I was missing some of that competitive drive in college. My boyfriend so graciously said he would help me learn how to swing a club and play the course.

It took a few days at the driving range and one round of golf and I was hooked. I already got a new bag for my clubs so I can carry them easier when we walk the course. I decided to write a comedic version of the slight downward spiral that I will most likely hop on in a few days. Here is for all of the boyfriends thinking about getting their girlfriends into golf!

1. If you give a girl some old golf clubs, she will say, "lets go golfing!"

18. After she gets her new irons, her woods will no longer do and she gets new sets of those too.

19. After she has all of the get up, she will want to go with you, and you take her, but explain that golf is your way to get away and she understands that you need some alone time.

20. When she understands that sometimes you need your space, she calls up your buddies and takes them. Now you are without a golf partner.

Even though she drives you crazy and she took all of your golf buddies, you still love her and love that she found something that keeps her happy. Golf is a lifetime sport. It can be leisurely or competitive, and it is somewhat easy to pick up.

I highly recommend taking it up as a hobby because it has kept me sane, especially through finals week. And boys, don't be afraid to take your girlfriend golfing. You might find that it is another way to bond other than watching Netflix. And girls, let them go golfing with their buddies. Sometimes, they need their bro time.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
