Life From The Bird Cage

We can do anything we put our minds to, ladies. Freedom is now.

Life From The Bird Cage
Mickey Bratton

Sit down. No, not like that. Sit like a lady.

Shoulders back. Not quite right.

Keep your legs closed. Tighter.

Wear this. No, not like that.

Cover up your shoulders. Are those finger-tip length?

Who do you think you are, going out like that? Leggings are not pants.

Leather jacket? Lace? Too sultry.

Nipples poking through? Too much.

Dark red lipstick? Too bold.

Who do you think you are?

You’re doing good, sweetie. Oh no. Not like that.

You try too hard. You don’t care enough.

Just stop.

Good job, boys. Maybe tonight she’ll be all over you if she has enough alcohol in her.

Remember, crop tops mean she's on the prowl for sex.

Hairy legs? Do the world a favor and shave those babies. No one wants to see that on a woman.

Big boobs are beautiful. Small boobs are not boobs at all. Put them away.

No, no. Show them to me.

You don’t trust me? I told you, you can. I don’t know what you’re talkin’ about.

Follow your dreams. But wait. You can’t do that.

Well, you’re a girl. This is a man’s job.

I'll be back home. Stay here.

I'm the one that's going to support the family. You can maintain the house.

Dark alley. Grocery store parking lot. You’re all alone. I will approach you.

Don’t run. You don’t need to be scared.

Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey.

What’re you doing tonight?

Hey. Hey. Sup? Hey. Hey.

Lemme get your Snap.

Hey. Hey. Hey!

Why do you got to leave me on "read" like that?

Speak up for what you think is right! Nevermind. Don’t do that.

You got a big mouth on you. Why don’t you ever stop talkin’?

Do you even eat? Let me guess. Salads.

Let’s put some meat on your bones. You don’t need to work out.

Are you sure you want that? Aren’t you on a diet?

You’re going wear a bikini? Not if you’re over 110 pounds.

I love you. You’re my world, princess. Please don’t go.

I need you. I love you, baby girl. I promise you.

I don’t know what I did wrong. I’m sorry. Let me make it up to you.

I said I was sorry. Didn’t you hear me? I won’t do it again.

Did you just say no to me? What? Speak up!

That’s what I thought. But you just said you wanted to.

You’re going out like that? Slut.

Can I get your number? How old are you? Do you have a boyfriend?


You don’t need makeup. You’re beautiful just the way you are.

You look pale. Are you sick? Are you okay?

Oh, that’s mascara? I thought it was all natural.

Eyeshadow too? Foundation?

Who are you trying to impress? Fake. Deceiving.

If you say anything, I swear to God. Shhh. Quiet.

You’re not my mother. Are you trying to change me? Crazy bitch.

Big lips. Big eyes. Wow, you’re stunning.

Look at that booty, though! DAMN GIRL.

You’re going to school? For what? Oh wow. Nice.

Very interesting. You’re so pretty!

Tell me how you feel. Stop crying.

Oh, please. Stop! You’re always complaining.

I’m just lookin’. I’m not doing anything wrong.

Can’t a dude look? Damn.

Why not? But why? That doesn’t matter.

Can I get your Facebook? I ASKED YOU A QUESTION. Don't be like that.

Stay in the kitchen where you're supposed to be. Where's my plate? Thank you, sweetheart.

Maybe if I hold the door for her, she'll be interested. You’re welcome.

Oh, do you want to go get a bite to eat?

You're happy being single? You don't need a man?

You're lying through your teeth.

No? Rude. Crazy. Hoe. Slut. Bitch. Wild.

Who do you think you are?

Ugly. Dumb. Priss. Liar. Fatass. Skeleton.

Put a smile on that face!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
