Things That Every Girl Should Know
Start writing a post

The world is your oyster, girl! Go out and conquer it, while keeping these few tips in mind.

1. Don’t go to the gas station alone.

It’s always smart to bring someone with you in the event that you need to pump gas at night. People can be sketchy, especially at night. Don’t put yourself in a possibly dangerous situation.

2. Wash the makeup off your face BEFORE you shower.

Say good bye to black mascara smears! Washing away any makeup, sweat, and dirt on your face before a shower is definitely something that everyone should incorporate into their routine.

3. Don’t pop your pimples.

It's like zits practically scream at you until you pay some kind of attention to them. I promise, it is so much better to leave them alone. Just dab some spot healing treatment if you really want to address the issue. If you end up poking a zit, make sure the spot is always moisturized to promote healing.

4. Surround yourself with good people.

You would be surprised at how strongly friends can affect you and the way that you make decisions. It is important to make sure that you are surrounded by people who help create a positive and constructive environment.

5. Carry pepper spray at all times.

If you ever catch yourself in an emergency situation, pepper spray will come in handy. Most of them come on keychains to make it super accessible when you need to use it.

6. Guard your heart.

Don't let just anyone sweep you off your feet. Make sure that whoever enters your life is not just there for one thing before they leave. Protecting yourself from heartache is worth the effort it takes. Remember, never settle.

7. Learn how to budget.

It is important to know what you make and what you need to set aside for bills, a savings account, and other expenses that life throws at you.

8. Don’t overdo the drinking.

There is so much more you can do on a weekend rather than be drunk for more than half of it. Besides a terrible headache and sensitive stomach, too much drinking can lead to all kinds of health problems.

9. Find time for yourself.

“Me time" is the best time. Make sure that there is room for some R&R, because you deserve it, after all.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
