23 Things Anyone Who Went To All Girls Catholic High School Can Relate To

Because we're all girls and public display of tampons wasn't weird

23 Things Anyone Who Went To All Girls Catholic High School Can Relate To
Emily Hattier

High School is nothing like the stereotypes make it out to be. For some, its's better, others worse. Regardless of your experience, if you went to all-girls Catholic high school, this list is definitely something we can all relate to:

1. Your morning routine went something like this: roll out of bed, brush teeth, put on uniform, leave

Because you're a natural beauty

2. No shave November (or no shave school year)

“Feel my leg hair!”

3. Going days without brushing your hair

And accidentally forming a dreadlock…or two

4. Never having to choose an outfit because you had a uniform

A luxury you probably took for granted

5. Doc Martens <3

Or Eastlands, Saddle Oxfords, Loafers, etc.

6. Ugly sock tans

Don't forget kankles!

7. Seeing someone with a tampon in her pocket and not thinking twice about it

Because realistically, there is nothing weird about a girl on her period

8. Being asked, "So, how do you meet guys?"

Then replying with a sarcastic response because it was school, not a remote island

9. If a boy did happen to make an on-campus appearance it became a small ordeal

For about five minutes because no one actually cared

10. Trying to text in class as discretely as possible, failing, and ending up in detention

"I was just checking the time!"

11. Same with chewing gum

"I was chewing on my cheek!"... which was probably the worst lie ever

12. Baking your friends food for their birthdays

And then attracting a large crowd

13. Perfecting the messy bun because you had no one to impress

Wouldn't be necessary regardless (see #1)

14. Spending hours upon hours searching for a dress that met dance dress codes, but also did not resemble a pillow case

Remember your first tea-length dress? Gross.

15. Prayers before every class

I still say some of them tbh

16. In-class parties (...more baked goods)

Because carbs don't count while you're in class

17. Wondering who was going to pass out during liturgy

You'd think the AC would have been turned down considering the whole school was in one room

18. Avoiding the lunch time stampede

Taco Tuesday was usually the worst...

19. Feeling bad for the male teachers since most girls were PMS-ing at the same time


20. Going out of town, telling someone you went to an all-girls Catholic high school, and being labeled a snob (LOL)

Again, LOL

21. Even if you graduated years ago, you still remember your Alma Mater

And it probably gets stuck in your head all the freaking time

22. Going to class in college in whatever you slept in, looking around, and laughing at the girls who actually tried that morning because the most important lesson you learned in high school was that you are a strong, independent woman who don’t need to impress anyone

Again, please refer to #1

23. Not willing to trade the experience for the world

But college is way better

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
