Texan Lingo, As Told By Texans

Did you know we have our own lingo?

Texan Lingo, As Told By Texans

I have been living in Texas for about four years now and I have traveled a lot to say the least. Yet I can tell you that there is no other place that I would rather call home! Here are some tweets that prove that we have our own lingo:

1. Bet

So you and your friend have come to a compromise and can part ways peacefully.


Because we are too lazy to say the whole thing ...

3. Fixing

This is weird even for me, and I still can't get used to it.

4. Hoe

We are talking no sexual things here ... get your mind out of the gutter.

5. For real

It's just a way to reassure the person that you are being honest or that your statement is accurate.

6. Y'all

It means "you all" for those who don't speak Texas.

7. Ma'am

Down south we are respectable gentlemen.

8. Swang

This just might be that someone made a mistake, but we like to start trends and so we did here with "swang."

9. Nah, you got it

The Texas way to wash your hands off something.

10. No

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it" is our predominant motto.

And MY Favorite - Whataburger

We are just crazy about it and we like to have our own name for it, too ... can never go wrong with water and a burger right?

What other things can we claim as Texan? Comment below!

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.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

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.
