The 37 Commandments Of Girl Code

A guide to being the best girl you can be.

Girl code--it's a secret honor code system that bonds all females. The code is unwritten, unspoken, and unbreakable. Here are 37 of the most sacred Commandments of the code to live by.

1. Thou shall not date a friend's ex.

2. Thou shall not let a friend go to the bathroom alone.

3. Thou shall not ditch a friend when going out together--especially if it's just the two of you.

4. Thou shall not ditch a drunk friend, regardless of how annoying they are.

5. Thou shall give a tampon to any girl in need.

6. Thou shall be honest when a friend asks "how's my outfit?"

7. But be nice if it doesn't flatter her, and then help her pick another one.

8. Thou shall be nice to your friend's boyfriend, even if you don't like him.

9. Unless he is disrespectful and abusive towards her, you will not interfere with their relationship.

10. That means no bad-mouthing or secretly scheming to break them up.

11. That being said, if they do break up, thou shall promptly arrive at her door with a tub of ice cream, sad movies, and tissues and cancel all your other plans for that week.

12. Thou shall always provide a shoulder to cry on.

13. Thou shall remain loyal to the phrase "Sisters before Misters."

14. Thou shall share food, not boys.

15. Even if the boy is the one making the food.

16. If you and your friend both like the same guy, neither of you will pursue him.

17. Even if he's really cute and asks you out.

18. Thou shall provide a sympathetic listening ear when your friend complains about her boy drama.

19. And forget about it and not get mad when she forgives him the next day.

20. Thou shall give dirty looks to your friends ex.

21. And dislike everyone she hates.

33. Thou shall not let your friend send that 2 a.m. drunk text.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

5 Tips To Help You Feel Better If You're Sick

A few helpful tips if there's a bug going around.


Not to brag, but I don't get sick very often, maybe once a year. When I do find myself a little under the weather, there's a few things I like to do for a faster recovery. I have no idea if any of these are 100% accurate, but I'd like to think they do. None of these will immediately make you feel better, but they'll help quicken the process.

Drink lots of water.

This one is a no-brainer, but it can be hard to do sometimes. I know when I'm sick, I definitely don't think about it. Water can help flush toxins out of your body, makes you hydrated, and can help you feel more awake and energized! If you're not a huge water drinker like I am, Tea also helps.

Stay home.

If you're sick, it's honestly better if you just take a day off and focus on feeling better. If you're worried about going to school or work, it's better that you don't spread anything. Let me just say, I'm fairly certain the last time I caught something was because someone behind me in a class was coughing through the entire lecture.


This one goes with the last point, but sleeping will help your immune system fight off any infections. It's good to take some time off and get any extra sleep you can.

Clean everything.

I like to wash all of my clothes and bed sheet, because they're what I wear and touch the most, especially my pillow cases. This will help get rid of some germs and stop them from spreading. It's also good to disinfect anything you touch often, like doorknobs and table surfaces.

Take medicine.

This one also sounds like a no brainer, but seriously if you expect to feel better soon you should be taking some sort of medicine. At the very least, it'll help with your symptoms, so you're not couching or sneezing every couple minutes.
