Paramount Pictures

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

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

1361035

According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

331268
Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?

I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
