If You're Sassy And You Know It, Clap Your Hands

I'm pretty sure we get it from our moms.

If You're Sassy And You Know It, Clap Your Hands

"Can you cut the attitude?"

"Take it down a few notches, will ya?"

"Watch your tone with me, young lady."

These are some of the phrases that perpetually sassy girls are doomed to hear for the rest of eternity. Personally, I'm pretty sure it's not my fault that I was born this way. Aren't certain personality traits genetically influenced? (Thanks, Ma). Ultimately, the life of a sassy girl is rough. We truly are hassled more than we deserve. Here are a few things every sassy girl will relate to...

Your poor eyeballs. Your poor, poor eyeballs.

Every female, sassy or not, knows that sometimes your eyeballs work out more than any of your other body parts. After the 8,674th eye roll, you start feeling like they might get stuck, but you can't help it. People can be really dumb. You can't do anything about it, so you just sigh and roll those big green peepers. Same, girl. Same.

Conversations (formal and casual) can be a nightmare.

I'm pretty sure I can name several instances within even the last three days when I was trying to hold a conversation with someone, and I saw them visibly recoil after I said something. We're sorry, guys. It just happens. Sassy girls truly have no filter and will say whatever comes to mind, regardless of whether it makes any sense or not. So, we end up stuttering angrily and tripping over our words, which makes us more angry. And, thus, the cycle continues. Go figure, am I right?

You're a 24/7 savage.

When you're sassy, sometimes you just get a little vindictive. Oh, is that a picture of your ex and his new girlfriend? Double tap. You thought of something that's probably rated PG-13? You'll tweet it, and not think twice about it. See something that you don't agree with? You'll let that person know. You don't really mean bad by it. You just don't really care what other people think, either.

Sudden spurts of self-confidence.

All sassy girls just have those days. You wake up and put a cute outfit on. Your contour and brows are on fleek. So, you flaunt it. Ain't no shame in your sassy game, my friend. Work it. At the end of the day, the only person you truly have to be content with is yourself. So, love your body and slay that selfie game, girlfriend.

You're secretly super sensitive.

I sure say, "Fight me," a lot for a girl who is 5'3" and cries when people raise their voices at her. It's just something that happens. I think that we truly are some of the most sincere, loving girls on the inside. It just takes the right people and the right circumstances to coax it out of us. It's like Marilyn Monroe once said, "If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." Preach, fam.

It's worth getting to know us.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
