14 Things Girls Do That Confuse Boys

14 Things Girls Do That Just Confuse The Heck Out Of Boys

Why do we do these things? They'll never understand.


As a female, I know there are things I do that other people don't understand. As a female who has a lot of male friendships, I constantly get asked why I do some of the things I do. Here are some of those "confusing" things.

1. That weird towel wrap thing we put our hair in after a shower

Honestly, I don't even know how I started doing it. I've just always done this with my hair after I shower.

2. Periods

Obviously they don't have these, but they really don't understand how any of it works. At all.

3. How long it takes to get ready

Well...we have lots of hair that must be dealt with, we have to pick out clothes, and some of us like to wear a little jewelry and makeup.

4. Skin care routines

Yes, we have to have very specific skin care routines. We have to keep our faces from getting too oily or too dry or too broken out, etc.

5. How many different bottles we use when showering

We have to have shampoo and conditioner. We need body wash. We sometimes need extra products for our hair to keep it from being to frizzy or flat, and we sometimes need extra products for skin for sensitive skin. The 3-in-1 wash just doesn't do the trick for us.

6. Going to the bathroom in groups

No girl likes to go to the bathroom alone. Usually, there's a line and no one wants to wait in a line alone. Also, the buddy system!

7. "I have nothing to wear"

Just because there are clothes in my closet does not mean I have something to wear.

8. The amount of hair we shed

I just have lots of hair and I can't help that sometimes it falls out...

9. The pain of heels

Just because they hurt our feet doesn't mean we're going to stop wearing them.

10. Having hair collected on the wall of the shower

If you let the hair go down the drain, it gets clogged SO quickly. So you just have to let it collect on the wall and then throw it away after you finish showering. That's just what we have to do.

11. The way girls can magically find everything they need to know from social media

We can find out what was going on at 2:41 p.m. on December 13, 2014 if we really wanted to. Don't question it.

12. Saying "I don't know" when asked a question

Sometimes it's just hard to pick something, okay, geez.

13. Why we're so picky about pictures

Everyone in the picture has to look nice. Why would we want pictures where we don't like the poses, background, etc?

14. Why we use so many pillows

The pillows on all the furniture just give the place some color and decoration. As for our beds, what's wrong with sleeping with tons of pillows??

10 Things You'll Recognize If You Grew Up In A Small Town

Those stop signs were more like suggestions.

Whether you're from the Northwest or Southeast, all small towns share basically the same characteristics.

From hanging out at car washes to eating endless meals at that Mexican restaurant, if you're from a small town, you'll probably relate to one (if not all) of these things:

1. Yes, that Mexican restaurant.

Whether you came here to eat after ball games or simply came because there was nothing better to do, you probably spent way to much money on burritos and cheese dip. (For real though, cheese dip was so worth that extra $3).

2. Churches. Churches everywhere.

There seemed to be more churches than people, and everywhere you went one of them was staring you in the face. At least you knew that the whole town was covered on seats when it came to Sunday services.

3. Yep, you hung out at the car wash.

For some odd reason, teenagers like to hang out at the car wash. We don't know why we did, we just did. No car every got cleaned. We just sat on our hoods or tailgates and talked or listened the music. What a wild night.

4. Quick stops.

Gas stations were called quick stops and thank God for those quick stops. You could fill up your tank and get a snack without having to drive 30 minutes to the nearest city. Plus their boiled peanuts were always the bomb. #blessed

5. "Stop" signs.

Those stop signs were more like suggestions. No cop, no stop, right? Same thing with speed limits - merely suggestions.

6. The football field.

Fall Friday nights were made for football games, and there was no getting out of it. Do any of you small town girls really remember going on a Friday night date? Yeah, me neither. Football games were the closest you were going to get to a date on Fridays. You either waited for Saturday or the end of the season. Honestly though, those Friday nights hold some of you and your friends' favorite memories.

7. The good ole grocery store.

Sorry bud, Walmart, Costo, and Kroger were 30 minutes away, and driving to the city was not about to happen. You either went to Shop and Save or Piggly Wiggly for your groceries.

8. "The park."

You either played as a kid, coached a peewee team, refereed as a teenager, or simply watched your siblings play here. No matter the case, you've been to the park, and you're lying if you say you haven't.

9. Those white welcome signs.

Literal *cringe* just looking at it. Passing this sign after coming home from the city meant you were once again stuck in this little town with nothing to do, but you honestly kind of love having nothing to do sometimes.

10. This view.

Sure, there's not a whole lot going on in your small town, but with views like this you can't complain. #NatureIsCool #SoAreSmallTowns

Stand-Up Comedy Can Make The Most Stressful Days Way Easier

If you're stressed to the max, I highly recommend giving stand-up comedy specials a try!


Have you ever been laying in bed after a long and stressful day, scrolling through Netflix, trying to find something to watch? You can't make a decision on something, so you decide to try something new. Now, this could be a big mistake or you could find something amazing. This happened to me a few weeks ago and somehow I ended up in the stand-up comedy section. I have seen a couple of clips of Gabriel Iglesias, or "Fluffy," on YouTube in the past, but I've never watched a stand-up comedy special on Netflix before. It never was appealing to me and I don't know many people that watch stand-up.

After deciding to watch Gabriel Iglesias' new Netflix special, I was intrigued. Then, my friend told me that I had to watch Bert Kreischer's new Netflix special. He promised that I would find it funny and that he was really good. He added that Bert does all of his performances shirtless and it makes it that much funnier. So, I watched it and I've been hooked to stand-up ever since. Now, I've become a fan of the many classic stand-up comedians that many people know and love like Kevin Hart, Ellen Degeneres, and Iliza Shlesinger as well. It quickly became something I couldn't get enough of, especially after a stressful day. I figured out that even after the most trying day and even when I was extremely stressed or drowning in homework, I forgot about all of that. I got an hour to myself to just take a breath, have a good laugh, and forget about all of my problems.

A lot of times, I use the hour to eat some food while I watch the special or just lay in bed for a little while and enjoy forgetting about all of the things I could be doing. I've also learned some things. Like the fact that Ellen got her start by doing stand-up, or that Fluffy is coming to Columbus this summer to do a show. I also learned that even though these people are celebrities and have thousands of followers and fans, they're very relatable and more like me than I realized. We sometimes forget that they are people too.

I highly recommend taking an hour out of your day to see if stand-up comedy could be a stress reliever for you. This is definitely a topic that many people don't think of when it comes to relieving stress or getting into a better mood. I'm glad I stumbled across this new found stress reliever to be able to try something different and new and to enjoy a good laugh while doing so. If you're down in the dumps or having a hard day, try watching stand-up. I promise it'll make your day better.
