15 Signs You're Just A Small Town Girl Living In A Lonely World

You might hate it sometimes, but you wouldn't have it any other way.

If you grew up in a small town like I did, you'll definitely understand. Small communities can be irritating and annoying, but it's shaped who you are today.

1. You know literally everyone and their cousin

It's a blessing and a curse.

2. Your hang-out spots are shopping centers

media.giphy.com

When I say shopping center, I don't mean a mall either. I literally mean shopping centers like Walmart, Dollar General, etc. If you're lucky you have some fast food restaurants, but we aren't all that lucky Linda.

3. You graduated in a class less than 50 people

media.giphy.com

It's normal, too.

4. You have to drive 30 minutes to have any real fun

media.giphy.com

Late night Walmart excursions can get boring.

5. High school football games were a HUGE deal

media.giphy.com

Whether your team sucked or not, everyone and their mama were sitting on those bleachers.

6. You frequently get stuck behind a tractor

media.giphy.com

I'm not joking, either.

7. You can't go anywhere without seeing someone you know

media.giphy.com

You'll stop and talk to them for what feels like an hour, too.

8. You're related to half the staff at your high school

media.giphy.com

Previous generations of your family probably went there, too.

9. You don't have that many major chain restaurants/stores

media.giphy.com

The ones you did have, shut down and got turned into a Mexican grocery store. Used the same sign, too.

10. You wave when you pass someone in your car

media.giphy.com

Go ahead and wave to everyone you see, because there's a pretty good chance you know them.

11. You know what school everyone in the county goes to

media.giphy.com

You either went to school with them or you immediately knew where else they went.

12. You don't have that many red lights

media.giphy.com

The ones you do have, have names. Example - "the CVS light".

13. Your teacher held multiple positions at your school

media.giphy.com

Your cheer coach is also your history teacher, SGA sponsor, prom sponsor, and whatever else is needed.

14. You know everyones business

media.giphy.com

Word gets around fast in a small town, if you haven't noticed.

15. You ask "how's your mama and them"

media.giphy.com

No matter how small and boring your community is, you wouldn't have it any other way.

Tonight's the night when we forget about the heartbreaks, it's time uh oh

o you don't know what to do for your 22nd birthday? You think, hey, I just turned 21 last year and got shwasted because I could finally 'legally' drink alcohol. So 22, isn't that big so what do I do to celebrate my 22nd birthday? Well for one, every birthday should be important to you because it's your day, a day that's all about you and it's the day that you were given life. You should celebrate every year because it's another year that you have lived, right? Why can't your 22nd be a bang, why couldn't your 22nd be bigger and better than maybe your 21st, 18th, or 16th? Here are some ideas that you could do on your 22nd if you're having a brain fart.

1. Get your friends together and go to a nice dinner

Food can never go wrong on your birthday.

2. Go to the movies

Go see the latest movie out, grab some popcorn and soda and have a friend tag along.

3. Dave and Busters

Arcade games for adults?! Enough said.

4. Go on a weekend trip somewhere

You have been dying to go somewhere for awhile, why can't your birthday be the perfect time to go on a getaway?

5. Take the day off from work/school

It's your BIRTHday, no need to work or go to school, it's your day to celebrate you and you don't need to work your butt off on that day.

6. Happy Hour with friends/family

Appetizers and beers, what else could you want?

7. Go to a brewery

Grab some brews with a couple of friends, be social on your day!

8. Bar/club scene

If you are into going down to the strip to go to a club or a bar to get wild, just do it on your birthday!

9. Have a beach party (if your birthday is in the summer)

Waves, sand, beach games, sounds like a blast to me!

10. Go go-karting

Who says you can't be a kid?

11. Trampoline park

Trampolines everywhere, dodgeball and basketball, why not do it on your birthday?

12. Winery


13. Go hiking

Why not see beautiful scenery on your special day?

14. Go to breakfast or brunch

If you love breakfast and lunch,combine them and grab a mimosa or a bloody mary while you're at it.

15. Do a spa day

Need relaxation and a little getaway, a spa day is perfect.

16. Get a hotel

Hotel on the beach? Where everything is in sight, why not?

17. Break out into your song of the day,

"I don't know about you but I'm feeling 22. Everything will be alright if you keep me next to you. You don't know about me, but I bet you want to. Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22 uh uh ah ah ah 22 uh uh uh" by the one and only TayTay Swift

10 Jonas Brother Songs That Complete The Perfect 2008 Nostalgia Playlist

My prepubescent 12-year-old self is still fangirling.

2019 is the year of the comebacks, with the most infamous one being the Jonas Brothers. My prepubescent 12-year-old self is still fangirling. I never thought the day would come where we would get another bop from the jo bros. In honor of this glorious event, I am counting down their best songs to date.

10. "When You Look Me In The Eyes"

This song is on this list only for my mother's sake. She almost fist fought someone during the burning up a tour and went on a rant because they were not going to play this. (They did for the encore)

9. "Year 3000"

This makes the list as number 9 because it was not only the first song that made me fall in love with them, but it also made me want to buy a Kelly Clarkson album.

8. "Play My Music"

Now granted, this was on the camp rock album it still is one of the best songs in their career. Every time they would play this on the Disney channel I would literally jump out of my seat to dance and pretend I was at their concert.

7. "Pom Poms"

The weak attempt at their first comeback due to creative differences gave us this gem. I will always play this at my cousin's soccer game due to the upbeat vibe and positivity it gives.

6. "Hold On"

This brought me to tears at the tender age of 9, with my imaginary boyfriend.

5. "We Got The Party" ft. Hannah Montana

Sweet Mama, this song is great for a summer day.

4. "Sucker"

This second attempt at a comeback was so much better than the first. This song is definitely the song of the summer.

3. "Lovebug"

This really put me in my bag and still does in 2019.

2. "S.O.S"

Kevin's dance to this made everything.

1. "Burning Up"

This was the first rap I memorized and is the most iconic song of 2008.
