11 True Life Pros And Cons Of Attending An All-Girls High School

For high school, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a school near my house that introduced me to some lifelong friends. Although I did not always love the school, I was surrounded by some awesome teachers and fantastic strong pals.

Each high school had their own pros and cons but these were a few I found common among my peers.

Pro: You make best friends for life

I know I can count on them no matter what.

Pro: No Boys = No Boy Drama

Woohoo (except for that rare time when Becky finds out Jennifer is also going out with Brad.)

Pro: Getting to throw on sweatpants every single morning

Not to mention being able to not brush your hair.

Pro: Helped me come out of my shell

My mascot was a snail so this is literally true.

Pro: Distraction Free Zone

Now this one I can't always say is the truth as I was usually distracting others but I'm sure it's true for some people!

Pro: Feel more freedom to take risks/ look foolish

Pro: Community full of support (most times)

This can depend on what school you go to, but most times you can be surrounded with people who care about you.

Pro: Our Football Team was Undefeated

Whatever all-girls school you go to, just know you can brag about being an undefeated team!

Con: No Boys = Still lots of Drama

Even though we won't be fighting about boys, you can still count on the drama.

Con: "Wait, you go to an all-girls School?"

The shock on people's faces as you repeat for yet the ninth time, that yes, I go to an all-girls school.

Con: Boys are like a rare species when you see them

This one needs no commentary.

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.

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.
