The 7 Stages Of A Basic White Girl In Fall

The leaves are changing colors, the temperatures are dropping, and fall is finally here. With this comes Basic White Girl Syndrome (BWG), a spreading sensation that causes girls everywhere to become basic, or predictable according to Webster. There is currently no found cure, but there are symptoms that you can use to self-diagnose. Here’s what to watch out for this season:

Stage 1: Fall Clothes are Back

The temperature dropping to 65 degrees means it’s officially boots, vest, and flannel season. A warm yet stylish fall wardrobe is essential for BWGs, so this symptom will definitely be apparent this fall.

Stage 2: A Need to Cuddle

Following a drop in temperature comes a BWG's desire to cuddle up under several blankets and refuse to move for hours. This symptom is completely normal and may even be confused with laziness. But please do not be alarmed, for a BWG is simply always cold and they love to cuddle.

Stage 3: Pumpkin Spice Everything

This is one of the most glorious flavors that will have every BWG going crazy. Starbucks cups use will be at an all-time high, your Pinterest feed will be blowing up with recipes, and the smell will be everywhere. You'll feel as if you live in a cloud full of pumpkins, but who wouldn't love that?

Stage 4: Social Media

One of the best activities during fall is picking apples, getting apple cider, and enjoying a nice day out with your friends. With BWGs, you’ll feel like you’re right there with them due to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook posts and pictures. Fall brings out every BWG’s ability to pose, filter, and post their best pictures of the day.

Stage 5: Halloween

It’s the beginning of October and one of the biggest stresses a BWG will go through is what to be for Halloween. Who should they coordinate with? How can they make it as cute but warm as possible? Will anyone else have the same idea they do?

Stage 6: Decorations

With Halloween and Thanksgiving coming up, why not deck out the apartment in all the coolest things. BWGs love this stage. It gives them a chance to express their creativity and let their guest know how festive they are.

Stage 7: Makeovers

Hair dyed for a fresh new look, nails painted in the latest and trendiest fall color, and new makeup has been purchased. A BWG must be in style for this fall season. And what matches better with their boots, vest, and Starbucks than pretty hair and nails for the Instagram picture? New season, new you.

May the pumpkin spice be nice, the weather suffice, and the leaves be a delight this wonderful season. Happy fall, my fellow basic white girls!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
