Ladies, Stop Trying To Hide Your Intelligence For A Boy

In a world where "the future is female," I find myself astounded that so many girls are still pretending to be dumb around boys because they think it makes them more attractive to them.

We live in a society full of strong, successful, and beautiful women who are doing such amazing things with their lives and have proven themselves as huge role models for all women, and yet some girls still think the key to a man's heart is by acting as if you don't know anything?

It's not helping you. All pretending to be dumb to attract boys does is hinder the growth of women all around.

A quick look at the history of women and the struggles for equality that we have and still continue to go through should be enough of an indication that being smart is beautiful. Showing off the hard work you've put in at school, in a job, at a hobby, or any other aspect of your life should be treated as a proud accomplishment, and any man you're trying to get involved with should absolutely see it as such.

If they don't, they're probably threatened by or jealous of your success, and honey, you don't want him.

Your girlfriends and your parents should not be the only people supporting your creative and academic endeavors. Especially in a lasting relationship, it is important to feel like the man in your life not only supports your intelligence but is pushing you to achieve even more.

If you pretend to be less intelligent than you are, and you do end up dating the guy, you'll never be able to break out of that cycle of acting like someone you're not. How can you want to be with someone that doesn't even know you?

"Knowledge is power" is quite cliché, but it's the truth. For the sake of all women in the past, present, and future to come, don't be afraid of your intelligence.

Embrace and flaunt it.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
