Hey , I'm Regina George and I am the most popular girl in school.

I'm pretty sure that all of you have wished to be me at some point in your high school years. I mean come on, I'm popular, gorgeous and have the best boyfriend ever. I'm the Queen Bee of the 2000's right after Jennifer Check from that movie Jennifer's Body. Let's put it this way, I don't know where you have been since 2004 (Has it really been that long?!) if you've never saw the movie that made me famous.

This movie changed and defined what we all wish high school could be. Who doesn't want lessons to survive in the real world from an actual mean girl? I'm the girl you all love to hate. The boys all want me and the girls are completely and totally jealous. I'm sweet as sugar but I am just as sour as salt. Having the world in my hands is an obvious way to live because I'm pretty and always right.

I'm sure you saw the title of this article and had to read it because of my name. You maybe clicked on it because of my BFFs, Cady (Africa), Gretchen (Who needs to stop with fetch) and Karen (Needs a better Halloween costume) but I know for a fact you clicked on it for the prom queen. Without anymore explaining, let me tell you my hacks of living...And you better send me a candy cane.

Set a goal for yourself and don't lose sight of it

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

I set my sights on losing three pounds and it happened...Despite Cady giving me those nutrition bars. I changed my ways up to lose it and look at me, I'm still fabulous

3 way convos are too much fun

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Gretchen did do that to Cady and it was friend code to only tell her. I mean, all of us talking at once can mean that things are only going to get confusing. Tell your friends the truth whether the other doesn't have to know

Always thank your peers

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

thank you for voting me in as Prom Queen. People shape us day to day and I'm more than glad I get to reign supreme over all of them

Toy your boyfriend in front of others

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

They are either jealous he's with me or jealous that I'm with him. In any case, I'm allowed to dangle Aaron like a key chain. It boosts my confidence and it should with yours as well

IF the diet fails, eat cheese fries

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

It's no secret I'm bad at math and those bars are not filling. If there is no options for cheese fries, try nachos. They are not worth that many calories and are simple to eat. Throw your diet out the window girl!

Don't be afraid to speak your mind

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Dealing with Karen is a handful considering she says the stupidest things (Is stupidest a word?). If my friend is having a blonde moment, I'll correct them. Don't be afraid to use your voice in front of others

It's okay to be dramatic

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

I mean, what's a girl if she's not dramatic? What I did wasn't wrong and I enjoyed every moment of it. Anyway, show your emotions whether they are real or not, it's okay

It's okay if you aren't smart either

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Obviously I'm smart enough but I'm not like honor roll material. Don't compete with others just because they have better grades or work harder than you. You're at your own level and that's perfectly okay

Sometimes, you just watch the world burn

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Oops, did I cause that scene? In life you need to hold yourself down to others even if that means causing a little trouble. If destruction happens oh well but just enjoy the glory

Tell your friends the truth

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Gretchen got so annoying with fetch so if your friend is annoying just tell them. Loyalty and trust builds a relationship and if you can't have it then your not friends. Obvi.

Joke around with your BFFs

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Karen doesn't know I wasn't joking but who cares. If you can't playfully call your friends name or joke then what? Did she really take what I said to heart? Fat chance

Go all out for Halloween

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Halloween is like christmas for us girls. Look cute, look sexy but makes sure you do you. You don't need to go all out like Cady but me as a rabbit? I totally looked hot

Tell your BFFs you love them

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Love ya girl! Love you more! My friends mean the world to me even though we have our ups and downs. Show them your love because without my girls I don't know where I would be

Let the boys envy you

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Be desirable to all of the boys around you. It's okay to tease and flirt but don't go overboard. If you see a boy that catches your eye, go for it (Hi Shane!). It's okay to keep your options open

Shopping doesn't hurt anybody

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Name a more iconic line in the movie? Okay, you probably could but that's not fair. Treat yourself to a little relaxing which means shopping. A new outfit, makeup or whatever your heart desires will do

Who cares about rules

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Blah blah, on Wednesday's we wear pink. Defy the rules that people make and break your own rules. You are your own person and you be yourself

Don't believe what people say about you

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Did I write that about myself? At least I didn't believe it. People talk, especially girls and do not ever let them bring you down. Smile in their face and shrug it off. You know what's true and what's not

Lazy days are perfectly fine

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

So I gained weight and couldn't fit in my clothes. Sweatpants are like from God and I think I will wear them more (Only Juicy Couture). Who cares if you don't look your best, feel your best

Mom's are embarrassing, I know

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

I wouldn't be where I am without her and I love her to death. Sure, sometimes she gets on my nerves or embarrasses me but come one, she is my Mom. I'll always be grateful for that...Plus she gave me her room

Let people be obsessed with you

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

It's obvious about Janis Ian. It's obvious that people are jealous and obsessed with me. Live the life that people wnat to envy and chase your goals to do so

Do whatever it takes to keep your man

Mean Girls Quotes

Giphy

Cady really did some voodoo spells in her notebook. I was only protecting Aaron and keeping him for myself. He is my man after all so do what it takes to keep yours at your side

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

396

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
