11 Questions College Girls Always Ask Dad, Never Mom

There are certain things that are best to go to Dad about. Here are 11!

1. CARS.


Tires, battery, locks, you name it. If it's about cars, I ALWAYS go to dad, after all, he does know best. Just last week, actually, my car battery died and my dad helped me throughout the very traumatic process of going to the car place all by myself (not actually by myself, but still without parental supervision).

2. "What do I get for mom?"

This one should kind of be a given, but if it's a gift for Mom, I always go to Dad.

3. Fishing (or hunting if you're into that).


Some of my favorite memories have to do with fishing, but because my mom gets seasick, it's definitely a dad thing.

4. When you're really fired up about something!

Absolutely love Moms, they're wonderful. But if you're fired up and you just need to get even more fired up because that's your current ~mood~, always go to dad.

5. Grilling questions.


Ladies and gents, if you ever have a very very important question about grilling, take it to dad. Chances are, he's grilled once or twice in his life.

6. House problems.

If your light goes out or your toilet gets clogged or your house just really seems to be falling apart, always always call dad.

7. Moving into a new place!

100% you need the big muscles on move-in day! I remember my freshman year move-in day we had my dad and brother there, things went way faster than this past year when it was just me (in case you hadn't already guessed).

8. Curtain rods.

Kind of random, but I had this curtain rod that none of my friends could see to get up. One of my friends even tried and put 5 unused holes in my wall. Each of them tried with a hand held screwdriver and an electric one (also an electric drill I think???). Well, story time, so my dad comes in and in LESS THAN 5 MINUTES, he manages to have all three holders in the wall, the curtains on the rod, and the rod on the curtains. It's just something about dad's, I'm telling you.

9. Surprise visits!


I distinctly remember my freshman year calling my dad on the way home and saying "hey, I'm coming home to surprise mom. Can you keep her at home?" Much to my surprise, they were not in fact at home, so it's a good thing I called Dad because I was able to catch that in the right spot!

10. Electronics issues.

If my computer breaks or my TV isn't working, or something else in my electronics-centered life gets messed up, you can bet I'm calling my Dad.

11. "I miss you!"

Cheesy, but also you should go to dad when you're missing them. Because I promise they miss you too (or at least I would hope they do).

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
