Being A Mean Girl In College Isn't Cool So Why Are You Still Acting Like A High School Bully

College is hard and girls should be supporting girls.

Being A Mean Girl In College Isn't Cool So Why Are You Still Acting Like A High School Bully

We all knew someone like Kate Sanders from the show Lizzy McGuire in high school, but I don't know why you're out here in college still acting like you rule the school.

There's nothing worse than putting people down, but to think you can be an actual adult still bullying people like we're on the playground is ridiculous.

I've never experienced this college version of Kate Sanders first hand, but just hearing stories of how mean girls are to each other in college is crazy.

We're out here combating frat boys as freshmen, trying to make it out of a sophomore year slump, working on getting the internship of our dreams during our last summer of college, praying for the day we turn 21 and struggling through our senior year before we go into the real world.

But, some girls have time to make fun of other girl's appearances, put people down and slut-shame people who are supposed to be their besties? That's a mess, and I want no part of it.

A little gossip is OK, but when you're in full on mean a** bully mode that's where it needs to stop because we're in college. We're all messing up, saying the wrong things, learning the same lessons over and over again and staying out too late. The stress is never-ending, and we wake up every Monday and do it all over again.

We need all the support we can get.

No one cares about the designer bracelets on your wrist or how much you have in your bank account so stop acting like you're better than everyone.

Whoever heard of belittling others as an adult? I never thought I'd see a bully in the flesh in my college years, but life will surprise you like that.

There are always going to be cliques in any group, but a college bully brings it to a whole new level.

Being a mean girl in college isn't cool because we're all struggling with classes, the looming date of graduation and trying to balance a personal life, so I'm confused how you have the time to be mean to people?

I need to be kinder to people.

We all need to be nicer to people because college is rough and girls should be supporting girls not tearing them down.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid,, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.
