A PSA On RBF (Resting B*tch Face)

"I know I may seem like a bitch, but that's only because I'm acting like a bitch." -- "Mean Girls"

A PSA On RBF (Resting B*tch Face)

I have a confession to make: I have a disease. It's not chronic. I am not going to die. I have RBF. RBF stands for "Resting B*tch Face." RBF is when a person, usually female, naturally looks mean when her face is expressionless without meaning to. It isn't that you aren't friendly if you have RBF, you just don't look friendly. Living with RBF can be a huge problem for everyday life. Here are a few struggles that people who have RBF go through every day.

1. On the inside, you feel like you are the epitome of happiness.

Your brain is telling you that you are in a really good mood. You might even have yourself convinced that you are smiling on the outside.

2. On the outside, you look like you want to rip out someone's heart.

Your face doesn't show every emotion that you ever feel. Even if you are happy, your face may not show it.

3. You get asked, "Why do you look so mad?" many times throughout the day.

You may not even be mad at that point, but you will be if people keep asking you if you are mad.

4. People constantly ask, "Are you okay?"

Yes, I'm fine. Please quit talking to me.

5. You are constantly being told to smile.

Please don't tell me to smile again.

6. You never do.

I will never succumb to your begging and pleading.

7. You have the sudden epiphany that you have been scowling all day.

It's an "Ah ha!" moment when you realize that you haven't been wearing your fake smile all day.

8. It's a blessing.

No one has tried to talk to you all day, so you haven't had to deal with the ridiculousness of stupid people.

9. It's also a curse.

Being unapproachable is never a good thing. If people can't approach you, they might get scared when you approach them.

10. When you are actually mad, you have to get extra mad so that people take you seriously.

No one ever realizes when you're actually mad. You have to pull out all the stops. Let the steam escape from your ears and your face has to get really red.

11. You are a survivor and you will make it through the day.

As Destiny's Child once said, "I'm a survivor. I'm not going to give up. I'm not going to stop." You will make it through the day. Knowing that you have the best scowl on the face of this planet should give you some kind of ease and comfort to get you through the rest of your life.

If you ever encounter someone with RBF, and I know that you will, don't be a pest. Don't ask them a thousand times if they are OK. Don't tell them that they look angry (we know that we look angry, there isn't anything that we can do about it). Just ignore the look on their face and go about your day.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
