7 People That Are Worse Than Debt Free Virgins With No Tattoos

Helping Lori Anderson expand on the expectations people should have when looking for a life partner

7 People That Are Worse Than Debt Free Virgins With No Tattoos

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife", and according to certain men, this woman must be a debt-free virgin with no tattoos. (Pride and Prejudice)

If you still haven't had a chance to read Lori Anderson's blog post on the threats that college-educated women can have on the market for eligible Christian wives than you are really missing out. According to Anderson, Christian women have to be careful about whether to even attend university if they want to ensure their ability to proper wives and mothers in the future. She goes on to mention that men will have troubling training their wives "since they've not been taught to live in submission to their husbands" while commenting that these women could instead live at their father's home for protection until marriage.

Anderson's post gains favor from some, while for others, like yours truly, are simply astounded at the blatant infantilization of women and that their worth would be diminished in any way by pursuing a higher education or that tattoos would somehow also affect their worth.

But what surprises me the most is the standards that Christian women apparently have to meet are still fairly low: to be debt free, a virgin, and no tattoos. So I've taken it upon myself like Anderson to expand more on the subject and present the following people you should definitely not enter a relationship.

1. People that pour milk first and cereal after


Everyone knows that the only way to preserve the good cronch of cereal and avoid any immediate sogginess is to pour your cereal first and then add the milk afterwards. Also how the heck do you expect to get the right cereal-to-milk ratio if you don't measure out the amount of cereal you want first?

2. Guys that wear shorts all year (even in winter)


I honestly do not understand as a Midwest native how some guys can go all year, no matter the weather, rain or shine and just wear shorts and only shorts. What are you trying to prove to the world? That you have knees? That your bro-ness can withstand even Mother Nature herself? Because your frostbitten kneecaps stand to say otherwise. And contrary to your strange logic, shorts are not always the best option for formal wear, so in an ironic twist, I'm going to have to tell you boys to cover up.

3. People who use the wrong 'Your' or 'Their' when texting


Let me break it down for you:

Your = possession

You're = You Are, it's a contraction

Their = possession again

There = placement/location/direction

They're =They are, another contraction

Please get it right people.

4. Anyone that uses the word "triggered" for minor annoyances/inconveniences


Please note that trigger warnings and triggers are used to avoid any stimuli or situations that might cause a person to remember or relive a traumatic event.

Please don't use this when you can't recognize that the "leaf" in your Chipotle burrito is bay leaf which is used for seasoning.

5. That one person who thinks it's acceptable to bite into the entire kit-kat bar


No. Just...no.

6. People that drive and don't use their blinker


Two Words: Actual. Heathens.

7. Independent feminist women with autonomy over their bodies and relationships


Oh my bad, that's exactly the type of person you should want to pursue a relationship with.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
