The Perks of Being a Girl

“I just want you to know that you’re very special… and the only reason I’m telling you is that I don’t know if anyone else ever has.”

The Perks of Being a Girl

As frustrating and annoying as it can be, being a girl is really awesome. We are beautiful inside and out. Not a lot of people may see that, but girls have a ton of amazing qualities.

We have unique flirting skills.

Us girls have a significant way to flirt with other people. Even when we say the most random or awkward things, we have a way of making everything sound cute and planned. It’s just a gift; we’re good like that.

We know how to fight back.

While maybe not literally, that is Guy Territory. However, when it comes to dealing with drama and other people, we learn, and eventually know, how to deal with other people’s issues with us. We also do a lot more payback.

We pick pretty great friends.

Some girls may have a lot of friends in general, but for the most part, we know how to pick and keep the friends that are the most special. Through experience (of course) we learn how to see people and keep the ones who will stay by our side. Go us!

We have a pretty great fashion sense.

Yes, there are many times when we just want to lay around wearing sweats and not care if we match or not. But when we go out, we are really good at picking out outfits and rocking everything we wear. We know how to clean up pretty well, if I say so myself.

We each have one heck of an imagination.

Whether it is thinking about a boy or our future careers, we girls can think of some pretty vivid scenarios, even though we know deep down they may never come true. But the beautiful thing is we never stop dreaming. Even if we think of something that is impossible, we still dream it, because it makes us feel better. What we imagine can maybe even affect how others think, and who knows? Maybe in the end we do get the prince we’ve been dreaming about.

Never be ashamed of being a girl, because we are truly amazing people. No one should tell us that we are not good enough or are not capable of doing something. We are special and unique. We know how to make someone smile and make someone's day. We go through a lot, but we learn. We have the power to do anything, and no one should try and tell us otherwise. And hey, girls just want to have fun, right?

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.

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.
