Signs that you're "one of the guys"

A few signs that you've officially become "one of the guys"

Signs that you're "one of the guys"

“You’re my dude who’s a girl.”

“We’re boys.”

“She’s one of the fellas.”

If you’ve heard any of these phrases said to or about you, this article is for you. Being a girl in a group of guys can be slightly intimidating, until you begin to embrace the fact that you are one of the guys.

1. You begin to walk, talk, and act like your guy friends.

Not on purpose, it just happens. You begin to pick up their mannerisms, quirky phrases, and even their tone of voice sometimes. Other people notice this before you do, and you are completely unaware. Sometimes you begin to use the gestures they use, whether its the way the point their fingers like guns, or the way they stick their neck out while talking. Little things like this are normal for any type of friendship, yes, but when you're the girl who is acting like the guys, people notice more.

2. You’re the only girl when everyone hangs out, and you’re the only girl in the group message.

Group-chats suck, everyone knows this. But when you're the only girl in a group chat full of guys, it doesn't suck as bad. You open the chat, and as you're scrolling through the contacts, you see that you're the only girl. No one ever acknowledges that though, they talk as they would to each other, and you do the same. The guys don't make any exceptions when referring to everyone in the chat as "homies" and "fellas", and you even respond to it.

3. You get called “homie” and “dawg” more often than not.

"homie", "dawg", "bud", and "fella" are just a couple of the normal nicknames you not only get called, but respond to. You become so used to these nicknames, that when they call you by your real name, you are taking by surprise, and maybe even confused.

4. Your guy friends sometimes “forget” that you’re a girl.

Obviously, they don't actually forget that you're a girl, but sometimes you are so much "one of the guys" that they're surprised when you act like a girl. No matter what the case is that is making you "act girly", they still seem slightly confused. You also know you love pulling the "I'm a girl!" card on them every so often, just to fluster them and see how they react.

At the end of the day, you know your guy friends have your back, and would protect you if it came down to it. As much as you love to mess with them, you know you love being one of the guys, and wouldn't trade it for the world. After all the stuff you go through dealing with your guy friends, you're happy to be one of the fellas.

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.
