The 10 Life Lessons The Movie 'Bridesmaids' Taught Me

The 10 Life Lessons The Movie 'Bridesmaids' Taught Me

I loved the movie Bridesmaids. It was not only funny and witty, it was also full of applicable lessons. Every time I watch it, I seem to learn something new that I didn't know I needed to know and apply to my life. Here are 10 things I've learned from the hilarious movie Bridesmaids!

1. How to pump up your friends before going out

Some nights, the thought of going out does not seem very intriguing. But thank goodness that every squad has that one friend that knows how to drag you out of bed and into some heels.

2. That dancing is a source of stress relief

Between juggling school, work, and any personal issues we have going on, blasting music and dancing around with friends always seems to help relieve stress and make the problems fade away.

3. How to handle nosey roommates

It can be hard for others to realize that you would prefer that they do not take your things without asking, so maybe a note on your door could help clarify things and eliminate the risk of an argument with your "froomies."

4. When in doubt (and debt), be honest

In college, we are constantly eating out and ordering Starbucks at the library, so I've found it's best that when the invitation to go to Chipotle with your friends comes around, just be honest with them that you can not afford a rice bowl today.

5. How to dance my way out of a speeding ticket

On your way home for winter break, please make sure you are driving the correct speed or at least your cruise control is set to a decent speed. But, if time comes and those red and blue lights start following you on the highway, take a few notes from our friend Annie from Bridesmaids and give the officer a laugh, he may let you off with a warning.

6. Do not trust strangers or free tattoos

On a college budget, things that come along that are free are very intriguing. However, take note of what we should take if it's for free. T-shrits and protein bars are okay. Tattoos, on the other hand, are not.

7. Do not inflict your bad outlook or worries of relationships onto others that are happy

Whether you are fresh out of a relationship or stole cold single, seeing PDA could set you off. But, do not talk bad about love and relationships to people that are happy. That is just not cool, man.

8. How to ~blend in~

When moving to a new school where everyone has already made their friend groups, all you want is to fit in. Do not try to copy what everyone else is doing, but be yourself without making this whole transition about you.

9. Always try to get a good workout in and it's more enjoyable with friends

During our crazy schedules, it is important to keep up a good workout regime. Working out with friends brings enjoyment and positive results. Note: taking up sports with friends is also a good source of fitness!

10. No matter what, you'll always have that one friend that understands you

Lastly, life with throw you curve balls left and right, but the friends that stick by your side during the breakups, bad grades, rejection, etc. are the ones that you will have forever.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
