The 9 Everyday Struggles Of Being A Female As Told By Regina George

Being a girl is not always fetch.

The 9 Everyday Struggles Of Being A Female As Told By Regina George

1. Eating one almond and bloating like you just ate a five course dinner.


We all know this struggle... Why is it when you wake up in the morning you have the ideal body, but right after breakfast you're bloated?

2. Slut shaming


When girls hook up with multiple guys they get shamed, but when guys hook up with multiple girls, they get a high-five.

3. The pressure of finding the perfect outfit for an occasion.


Maybe I am just incredibly extra, but when I know I have an important occasion coming up like a formal or a wedding, I buy my dress weeks in advance. Not to mention brainstorming different ways to do my hair and make-up so I can assure I am putting my best look forward.

4. The side effects of the crimson tide.


​Whether you're bloating, aching, or breaking out, your monthly period is the most unwelcome guest and is a struggle all of us deal with.

5. The pressure to dance with a guy after he buys you a drink.


What happened to guys just being nice and chivalrous? Why MUST we feel this weird pressure to go twirl around and pay more than an ounce of attention because a guy bought a drink? Do you want a gold star because you spent $10?

6. Two Words: Sticky Boobs.


For some reason, clothes are being made with less and less fabric and necklines are going deeper and deeper, and you know what that means! You're either going commando upstairs or putting on a sticky, uncomfortable, piece of rubber or fabric to *somewhat* cover you up.

7. The constant groping and catcalling.


When I walk in the streets of the city, it is hard for me to walk by a crowd of boys without staring or whistling, and I don't believe that has anything to do with my looks. Creepy men love staring at girls and making them feel uncomfortable, and the second we yell back, it’s like hell has frozen over, and the men are in awe. Oh, and don't even get me started on the groping that men do in a crowded bar. Why is that even a thing?

8. Automatically being second-guessed because you're a female.


This is just a fact. Men, and sometimes even other women, are more likely to doubt a female. This is something the third wave of feminism is trying to crush, but unfortunately, these things don't change overnight.

9. Being emotional with men


Why is it a guy can get away with being affectionate and saying bold, emotional things even if you're not even there yet, but if a girl initiates the affection and the emotion, the guy freaks out? Did you catch that? Guys can cross the line with words, and we can't.

Although being a female is a daily struggle, I am most certainly thankful I am not a boy. As long as Regina George relates to us, it can't be that bad, right?

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
