Posts Every Girl Has On Her Finsta

And if you don't, you definitely know someone who does.

Posts Every Girl Has On Her Finsta
Phoebe Weisheyer

It starts out as a normal, extra account for all of your closest friends, and next thing you know you're saving every artsy streaks pic, every mirror selfie, and more crying pics than ever to post for 100+ people.

That's right. You've been sucked into, "The Finsta Bubble," a world that's supposed to be as real as it gets but, in reality, is probably a fake disaster. We're all different but somehow follow a similar theme of posts, let me break it down for you.

The profession of love to all their followers

I mean, thanks girl that I only follow because I saw you on a friend of a friend's cousin's post of y'all at a party and just wanted to know the deets. Love you too! #girlpower

The 7 part birthday posts

Now that Instagram has that swipe option, people go crazy on birthdays. It's just post after post of weird pictures and videos without any context at all. I don't even know the birthday girl, but I think I'm going to request to follow her too.

"You're lucky if you're still here in the morning" post

Let's be real, this was just to give one or two people a heads up. The other 124 of us are still here in the AM.

A plethora of pics that "aren't good enough for the main, so I'll post them here lol"

They all look the same as ones that are already posted on your main but go off sis.

The break

The typical "social media break" post. Been there, done that, but really didn't do it because you were either gone for no more than 48 hours or just stayed logged in but acted as a ghost. The finsta is addictive. How can I go about my day without knowing what Jessica's boyfriend did to upset her today?

Super dramatic crying selfies

Deep down, we all need a little extra love every now and then. What better way to get it than taking a mini shoot mid-mental breakdown and posting it to your exclusive insta? In 6 months, we're gonna look back and think, "what was I even crying about?" because it was probably nothing at all.

The "come to Jesus" moment

All of a sudden a long, sappy, religious post shows up in your feed, typically from the girl you'd both most likely and somehow also least likely expect it from. You know they just got caught sneaking out or tried to steal back their Juul, and now they're a changed woman. And hey girl power to ya, but we all know what post will probably come next...

The "good girls gone bad" post

Yep, you guessed it. Her head is probably back over a toilet or she's laid up with that guy she swore she was done with for good. Are we even surprised? Nope. But we're here with you for the ride, rooting for you either way.

And if you went all the way to the beginning and scrolled back up, you'd probably see how quickly they got a bit too comfortable in the finsta-verse

Not about one specific post but it's pretty self-explanatory. Do it to your own finsta; you'd be surprised how fast you got sucked in.

At the end of the day, we've all posted a few things we wish we didn't, way too many crying selfies, and were at times probably a little too fake, but no judgment. The finsta world is all one we have navigated together, as strange as it is. And don't get me wrong, a good bit of it probably is real (TOO real) but who are we kidding, it's still social media. You just can't have all 118 of your most trustworthy friends knowing all your darkest secrets. But don't worry, we all understand because we've all been there. Keep on keepin' on, I'm only following because I'm nosy anyway. Xoxo!

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.
