My Friend Likes Someone

20 Things You and Your BFF Do When One Of You Is Talking To A Boy

Liking someone is still as giddy and annoying as middle school – totally obsessed!


My friend and I spent HOURS obsessing over every little thing a boy was sending back the other day trying to decipher and decide what he meant so we could determine his intentions. I seriously felt like I was in middle school again. We were both giddy and stressing out over a simple conversation. LOL, but totally relatable, I feel.

1. Spend hours discussing possible ways to initiate conversation.

Do I say: "Hey!!"?

Or should I say: "Hey"

Do the exclamation points make me sound too excited or desperate? But does not using them make me seem disinterested or boring?

2. Hype your friend up so she hits send on that first message.

"Just do it– rip the bandaid off!"

"Ok, I did it!"

"Omg yay he HAS to respond!"

3. Freak until he answers.

"Are his reads on?? Has he read it yet?"

4. Start trash talking him in case he doesn't respond.

"Ugh maybe he is just like this with everyone– taking forever to respond!"

"He sucks at looking at his phone– he is never on it!"

"You need a guy that knows how to respond!"

5. Quickly switch back to hyping him up when he does respond.

"Omg he responded!!!"

"Yes I knew he wasn't the kind of guy to leave you on read– what a keeper!"

6. *waits at least five minutes to respond* and during this time you and your friend debate on perfect responses to send once again.

"He said 'what's up?' I shouldn't say watching Netflix... I need him to think I'm studious... do I say I'm at the library?"

"Ok, so he obviously responded when I used an exclamation point, so can I use an emoji now?"

7. Take turns stalking his social media.

"His insta isn't up to date.. he looks better in person, I promise!"

"He retweeted a pic of a football game, so he's into football!"

"I totally am into football too!"

8. Take turns stalking his exes.

"Who is she?"

"Does she go to school here?"

"Omg she's a blonde– I'm brunette– is he more into blondes??"

"Oh no– another ex was a brunette– I'm good!"

"Two exes????"

9. "When is his birthday?" *Checks for his astrological sign*

10. *Studies his astrology sign to better understand him*

"Omg he is an Aries... that makes total sense!"

12. You guys then check your astrological sign with his to see the compatibility.

"Omg we are the most compatible together!"

"Oh no... it says we wouldn't make a good couple... but who cares, this stuff isn't even real!"

13. You'll come up with multiple theories and explanations for the attitude of his responses.

He said: "Yep"

"Should I leave him on read? It's good to leave them wondering... but what if he wants me to start a new conversation and I miss out on it?"

14. Together you guys brainstorm ideas for hours on how to casually drop hints that you want to go out.

"Should I say that I like margs? I know he does... and maybe that means we can get margs together?"

"Should I mention I am going out on Friday, and maybe he is too, and then mention we should meet out?"

15. You'll have your bff analyze his behaviors towards you and then have her give you her opinion.

"He totally grabbed your hand for a sec while you guys were out– he's soooo into you!"

16. You guys turn the red flags into "flaws"

"He can have an attitude and doesn't always filter what he says.."

"Maybe he just needs someone to put him in his place or call him out?"


"If it becomes a habit then it is unhealthy, but until then, see if he'll get better!"

17. She'll listen to you obsess over what your relationship would be like. 

"We are both super chill so our relationship will be too."

"We'll spend our nights doing homework and then watch Game of Thrones before bed."

"We could have coffee dates before we go to classes every Wednesday!"

18. You both will start talking through possible fights.

"I mean, I know he doesn't like it when I do _______, but we could compromise on _________"

"He likes to fight, and I like to fight, so I bet we will fight a lot, but it'll keep things interesting."

19. You guys will discuss what your sex life will be like.

"I bet he's good in bed, he's good at dancing!"

"We have chemistry whenever we are out, so we have to have it in bed too?"

20. You'll plan out what your future will be like.

"He graduates next year, and so do I, so we could go anywhere."

"His last name is ______, that sounds so good with my first name!"

"I wonder if he wants a big wedding?"

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year


Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad
