Things College Guys Shouldn't Say But Do Anyway
Rick Falkvinge

Did you ever hear a guy say something to you about you or someone else and think, are you kidding me right now? I believe we all have. Even though I am only in my second semester of college, I have heard some things come out of a guy’s mouth that shouldn’t. Maybe they think they are trying to be funny, but news flash boys: insulting a girl is never funny. Here is a list of the top 11 things a college guy should not say, but does anyway.

1. Your roots are showing.

Boys, look closely. When someone dyes their hair, they have to wait 6-8 weeks before they can dye it again. In the meantime, hair will be washed, which causes the dye to fade and the hair to grow, with the original color. Women are already conscious enough with their looks, pointing out something that isn’t that big of a deal is just stupid.

2. Whoa, you're eating pizza?

Damn right I am, so shut your pie hole and let me enjoy my food. Women are human just like men, even though some will argue (including myself) that men are not human. Eating disorders are a huge problem, and mostly women have them. We aren’t going to eat salad three times a day, seven days a week.

3. You're wearing sweatpants.

Even though I always wear jeans, why do you care so much about what a girl wears? In college, most guys wear sweatpants every day. Some girls aren’t going to get up early to pick out a “cute outfit," especially if they have a class before 10 a.m. Most of us aren’t dressing to impress someone, we are just lucky that we decided to put on pants at all.

4. You're wearing a lot of makeup.

Again, some of us ladies are more insecure about our looks than others. And we wear makeup for different reasons. Some women wear makeup to cover acne, some want their eyes to pop, and some just think they look better with it on. Most people don’t have a flawless complexion, myself included. Guys, all of the makeup in the world wouldn’t be able to help some of you, so just don’t say anything.

5. Relax .

Oh boy. It’s one of those words that causes the opposite effect.

As much as this is a compliment, a guy’s intentions are not flattering to most girls. And to be honest, some of us get uncomfortable… what do we say back to that? Thanks, I like my ass too? A type of compliment that is flattering to a woman is “You have pretty eyes” or “You have a really nice smile." They are still comments about a women’s physical appearance, but guys, if you want most of us to keep talking to you, I suggest you start using those kinds of comments.

7. Oh, you're on your period.

“Yes, yes I am. Thanks. It happens for about a week every month. Is there a problem with that?”

Guys, you are not obligated to keep track every month when we get our period, but I am here to tell you that we really can’t control when it comes, so just accept it just like we have. And no, it will most likely doesn’t leak as long as we keep it under control.

8. I don't like your friends.

If you don’t like my friends, you can exit out of my life, please and thank you. For someone who chooses to keep a close friend group, you have to understand that if I do hang out with them, I truly like being around them. And I am not going to change that just because someone says they don’t like them. We probably won’t mention to you if we don’t like your friends because they are your friends.

9. You can't because you're a girl.

Just like some women can’t do the same tasks that men can, men can’t do some things that women can. So just don’t go there. It’s probably one of the oldest and most annoying sayings that women have heard.

10. I've wanted to hook up with you for a while now.

If you say this, the small chance that we would have has gone away completely now. And you probably won’t have another chance again. And the gif below explains what goes through our heads anyways when you say this.

11. You're going out in that?

If we want to wear a long sleeve shirt or jeans out instead of a skirt and a crop top, there is nothing wrong with that. And there is nothing wrong with wearing a skirt and crop top out either. We don’t care, because we are going to enjoy ourselves regardless of what we are wearing.

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.
