As I am writing this, I am on my couch on a Friday night. I have never felt more uncool in my entire life. Everyone I know is out having adventures and living their lives- hanging out with their boyfriends, on awkward dates, or making amazing memories with their friends. And I am on my couch writing an article. I feel like my life is at a complete standstill. My job is amazing and my friends are amazing, so why do I feel so uncool? My ideal Friday night consists of exactly what I did tonight: a movie with my family and writing articles that I am incredibly passionate about, so why do I feel so uncool? Why has society decided that my actions are considered uncool? Why can I not simply enjoy what I do without the negative comments and stares?
This is to the girl who is uncool. To the girl who would rather seek people who enrich her life than just people to fill voids she may have. To the girl who would rather go to new cafes for brunch on Sunday mornings than be recovering from a night downtown. To the girl who actually enjoys spending time with her family (gasp). To the girl who would rather have a girls night or a night alone than go on dates with boys who she has to constantly analyze. To the girl who would rather spend her time in museums and art galleries than in bars. To the girl who knows her self-worth. To the girl seen as goody-two-shoes. To the girl called a prude because she doesn't drink or smoke and takes pride in her appearance by dressing conservatively. You girl, are uncool, much like me, but if this is being uncool then I will wear the title proudly.
Girl, one day some amazing man (not boy, guy, etc) is going to come along and love you for every uncool thing you are. He is going to love that you have saved yourself for him. He is going to love that sometimes you talk in an accent just because. He is going to love spending time alone with you and learning about everything you love. Wait for him. But while you are, don't let society tell you that you and your actions are uncool. Own who you are and be proud of it.
Uncool girls are the best girls in my humble opinion, so let's stop letting society tell us otherwise.
