9 Things Every Girl Does To Get Through A Breakup, Besides Spending $300 At TJ Maxx

Yikes, we've all been there... a late-night call, a text, he sits you down on his couch... however it happens, it's like a punch in the face. Getting broken up with SUCKS and there's really no sugarcoating it. But it's part of life and every girl WILL do these 9 things to get through the process. Because that's exactly what it is... a process.

Binge eat pizza, ice cream, chocolate, anything that brings you happiness.

After you go through a breakup, you really just want to feel better, so you eat what makes you feel happy. Just confine this to one weekend, though. After that, it could start to catch up with you.

Call literally all of your friends and talk about it.

You want to call your man either 500 nasty mean names or cry about how much you miss him, but either way, you're talking to someone about it. It's too hard to just sit around and feel bad about it, so talking to someone helps with your anger or sadness.

Think about all the good times you had together (and maybe some bad ones, too).

You'll reminisce on your first date, your first kiss, meeting his fam, whatever it is that was good in your relationship. You also might think about how much he changed, what he did that drove you crazy, and you'll probably have a lot of questions.

Do something to take your mind off of it all.

Whether it's working out, getting lunch with friends, whatever, you'll try your hardest not to think about it. You really don't want to be in the place where he's all you can talk about, so you try to move on.

Cry over the thought of him finding someone new.

You know you're not supposed to think about this yet, but you do and it KILLS.

Get angry. 

After a couple weeks, girls will get INSANELY mad. They'll think about literally everything their ex ever did that made them upset, and they'll realize they never needed him anyway.

Change your look.

Whether it's cutting your hair, coloring it, changing your style, or anything else to switch it up, changing your look is definitely something every girl does.

Wonder who you'll meet next. 

When one door closes another one opens, right? You start thinking about who you'll meet next and you might even make a Tinder or a Bumble if you feel like it.

Gain your confidence back.

Obviously, after a breakup you feel like you aren't good enough and you wonder what the real reason was that he broke up with you. Regardless, after being on your own for a little while you'll start to realize that you'll be OK and that you really never needed him anyway. Thank you, next.

Break-ups suck, but you'll get through it! Grab your friends and some ice cream and let it all out!

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
