21 Memes Only PETTY Girls Will Understand

“Petty” isn’t a character trait, it’s a way of life. Sure, you could always choose to be the bigger person and let trivial matters go. You could choose to live and let live, or choose to stay in your lane and mind your own business … But where would be the fun in that?

Here are 21 memes that only the pettiest of girls (or guys) will understand:

 


 

21.) When your friends are trying to help you get over your pettiness, but you try and fail every time.

 

20.) At this point, you just have to accept that you were born this way.

 

19.) Or maybe you were raised that way. Either way, it’s a part of you who are.

18.) You’re not too worried about your pettiness anyway, it turned out well for Blac Chyna.

17.) When you check the weather and realize that every day is 100% chance of shade.

 

16.) When you have no time for baes who won’t respond to you in 5 seconds or less.

The 18 Best Things About Having Guy Friends

The coveted, platonic relationship between a guy and a girl BFF is something most only see as legend.

Two people with potential sexual energy CANNOT POSSIBLY get along without wanting to jump each other. Am I right?

eye roll

 

The answer is no. Having a close guy friend has more benefits than any potential uncomfortableness that may be brought on by two close friends hanging out alone. Not to mention that most of the time, they’re more like a brother than any kind of potential hook-up, the prospect of which makes you actually want to vom.

threw up

 

The Ed Sheeran to your Taylor Swift, the Harry Potter to your Hermione Granger, you’re there for them through thick and thin, with the added bonus of giving insight to the often-confusing female perspective and none of the jealousy. They’re a great balance to have in a world surrounded by sometimes catty, passive aggressive female friends; here’s why:

18. Once you’re in the inner circle, guys will open up around you with their ridiculous, raunchy, crude humor… and it’s hilarious.

17. Their jackets are warm, more comfy, and essentially up for grabs at all times.

cozy

 

16. Their perspective is invaluable because they know how boys think in all situations. (As is yours when they’re wondering whether their GF is being crazy).

bitches be crazy

 

15. Boys have limited drama.

shenanigans

 

14. They’re a perfect cover when you’re trying to duck the creepy guy at the bar.

13. They’re protective over you like you are their actual sisters.

The 18 Stages of Having An Annoying Uber Driver

Some Uber drivers are the coolest, chillest people you will ever meet, but some Uber drivers are clearly the mayor of Creepsville. Some Uber drivers leave you wishing you had just stayed home and stared at the wall rather than get yourself into a situation where you needed to call some stranger to come drive you home. These are the 18 stages of having an annoying Uber driver:

 


 

(18.) It’s Saturday night, the feeling was right, and you did what you always end up doing— getting blackout drunk. 

 

(17.) You finally accept that you’re maybe not sober enough to drive yourself home, and you’ve seen enough Lifetime movies to know that trying to drive drunk never turns out well, so you turn to your last resort – Uber.

 

(16.) After the longest five minutes of your life, you finally get a text that your Uber driver has arrived.

 

(15.) The text says your Uber driver has arrived in a black car, but when you look around, there are like fifty black cars, so you try to discreetly peek into all the windows, looking for anyone who looks remotely Uber-driver-ish. 

 

(14.) Your uber driver will finally get tired of watching you stumble around like an idiot and roll his window down to let you know which car is his.

The 17 Stages Of Getting Your Body “Summer Ready”

Every girl in the world has gone through the last minute panic when she realizes that summer is a month or two away, and she’s no closer to looking like a Victoria Secret model than she was last year. How are you ever going to wrack up the Instagram likes if your body is more “Fat Amy” than it is “Kendall Jenner”? Here are the 17 stages every girl goes through in an attempt to get her “summer body”:

 


17.) You accidentally open the Snapchat camera in Selfie-mode, catching a glimpse of your one-too-many double chins.

 

16.) With the summer season rapidly approaching, which means endless beach days and bikinis, you decide you should probably start working on your “summer body”. How hard could losing a few pounds possible be?

 

15.) You consider your options. Working out is something that people are, like, supposed to do, right? You should probably start jogging, or at least start taking the stairs? #BabySteps

False Assumptions About Greek Life

It’s not a surprise that Greek Life gets a lot of bad representation in the media and out. To lighten some of the tensions here is a list of things that you might have heard about Greek Life that is ENTIRELY false. Take a look:

 

10. We “buy” our friends.

This one gets said a lot and I find it pretty hilarious because it’s not true. We form friendship, we do not buy it. The dues we pay go towards national fees, chapter operating costs, and our social functions.

giphy

 

9. We’re cliquey.

Yeah, we like to hang around with each other a lot. So? This does not mean we’re cliquey. If you just tried to get to know us you would understand.

126

 

8. All we do is party.

No. A lot of us value education. We are still regular college students. Just because a few of us go out a few times doesn’t mean that’s ALL we do. Many of us like to keep each other grounded and even form study groups together because that’s what college is mostly about.

7. We’re a cult.

This one is my favorite. Not because it is true, because it is ridiculous. Like, OHHHH YAH we drink blood! Haha! You got us!….No.

giphy

 

6. We’re all spoiled little rich kids.

Some of us are friggin’ broke. Just because we’re in Greek Life doesn’t mean we’re all preppy, little, rich kids driving around in our nice set of wheels…Although that would be nice.

Why You Should Be Cutting Out The Bad Friend

Call this a blog post. Call it a PSA. Call it an article on the ins-and-outs of friendship.

Whatever you see it as, call it a message that needs to be HEARD.

attention

 

I have one particular issue that people around their mid-twenties (girls, especially) seem to continuously encounter, whether it hurt you in the past, bothers you daily, or keeps popping up in your life like a flower you’re allergic to. This rant is on the issue of cutting off friendships.

We all have that one friend, usually from high school or college, who you were just BESTIES with. You did everything together, the Bert to your Ernie without all the rubber ducky mumbo-jumbo (or perhaps even with it, after a night of tequila shots and childhood reminiscence- we’re not here to judge.)

rubber duckie

 

You were inseparable. You were sisters. You were each other’s secret keepers, confidants, and best friends. And when graduation came, you promised each other that nothing would change, you pinky-swore to the sky that your friendship, solid as diamond, would remain intact.

Well, kids… people grow up. Jobs happen, marriage happens, babies, new cars, more degrees, other friends, addictions, illnesses, new hobbies—they HAPPEN. And one day, two years or ten years after graduation, you wake up and realize the solid friendship you once cherished has crumbled.

This is when it’s time to take a good look at your life and evaluate who deserves to be in it.

change

 

Now, listen.

There are two kinds of people in every relationship.

myself and hummuss

 

I’m talking about the leader and the follower. The one who tries and the one who complies. The top-tier and second-tier. There is always, in every relationship ever established, a person who cares more than the other. And you my friend, if you are reading this article, are probably on the side of the follower. The trier. The second-tier. (Sorry to break it to you.)

Why else would you have clicked on a ramble-rant about letting go of the dead-end friendship?

It’s okay, though. These types of people are the ones who have many friends because they excel in keeping friendships afloat. You’re exceptionally good at planning and getting people to open up about their feelings. You’re the comfort friend- and that’s a good thing.

friend family

 

What’s not okay is when your efforts are unappreciated and unnoticed. Now, admittedly, I’ve been both of these types of people. I’ve been strung along by someone I called my best friend, spending years putting in effort where it wasn’t appreciated or acknowledged and got my heart broke time and time again from it AND I have, admittedly, been the friend who keeps a person around simply because I’m too nice to say ‘hey- this was fun. But we had our run. See you around!’ to someone’s face.

Consequently, you either get hurt or hurt other people when you are in either of these positions. This is why you should CUT IT OFF NOW.

snip

 

Think of the person you’re spending all your time and energy caring about- the one whom you pictured when you read the title of this article. YOU ask about their life, YOU invest your time and effort into their problems, YOU go out of your way to see and love them because YOU are a good friend.

Now do yourself a favor and cut the dead weight of a long-gone friendship away from your positive well-being and LET IT GO.

waving

 

This will be hard.

Yes, you will have memories you cherish. YES, you might see each other around or at gatherings years from now- yes, you will reminisce. I’m not saying you have to tell them everything you hate about them and leave the scene a bloodbath. I’m not saying that not being close now invalidates the friendship you once had, either.

What I am saying is… now? Now, you’re upset because you’re not the way you guys once were. You’re not putting in equal effort, you’re not feeling the same sentiment about each other that you once did. You’re a shadow of your former selves, holding onto them because they remind you of a part of the past you love, not because of how they positively lift you up, now.

never forget

 

This is damaging for multiple reasons, but the forefront of them is the simple fact that YOU are holding onto something and someone who simply doesn’t want you to grip them so tightly anymore and that realization is PAINFUL. It hurts and it’s hard, but that’s what it is.

And you’re worth more than that. We all are. Life is short and adventurous and messy and sporadic and dammit, it’s hard enough without having to put in effort where effort is certainly not deserved.

happy

 

In the long run, you will be happier. What’s the quote about being precious with your time? Be fiercely protective over it. Be very selective about who you spend it on because it is a finite amount that you will never be able to find more of. This is an attitude I’m trying to put forth in my everyday and you should, too. Be better than a person who lets other people take their time and effort and concentration from them. Make sure you’re a priority in the lives of those you care about. Spend your moments on people who make you feel like you MATTER because you do.

I know I’m going to.

Winter Struggles Only Florida Girls Understand

When girls think of “winter”, certain images may come to mind: Snowflakes, fuzzy jackets, and chocolate. When girls from Florida hear the term “winter”, what comes to mind is … well, completely different. Here are 10 winter struggles only Floridian girls can ever truly understand:


 

 

10. ) You were totally excited for like, the one week of cold weather for the year, mostly because you’ve been dying to wear a cute pair of boots. It’s not fair that girls in other states get to wear cute shoes, like, all the time.

 

9.) You feel insanely jealous of girls on Instagram taking super-cute pictures in the snow. Meanwhile, you’re drowning in sweat and have to pile on the deodorant.

 

8.) Christmas didn’t even feel like  Christmas, mostly because it was like 80 degrees out and instead of looking for reindeer, you were swatting away mosquitos.

 

7.) The super rare occasions when it does get cold, you have nothing to wear. It’s not like you need cute jackets or sweaters the rest of the year.

 

6.) While the rest of the world is freaking out over ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte’ and ‘Peppermint Latte’ season, you’re unable to join in on the fun unless the coffee is iced, which is totally not the same thing. Stupid hot Florida sun, thanks for ruining hot coffee for everyone.

What your go-to dinner says about you

Every one has a go to dinner during college. You switch it up every once in a while, but these are the meals everyone knows you by. And these few foods and personalities are very common everyone can see it.

Pasta: You love the olive garden, and never change your order. Your idea of the perfect Saturday night is binge watching some old Netflix tv show in your blanket and ignoring ever text you get asking to chill. Maybe switch it up next weekend. Trust me, spicing it up is great.

Pizza: You never commit to a man. You love to string them along though. You’re the fun one to take to formal, mess around with, and guys love you because they don’t have to worry about calling. On weekends you’re most likely to be found drunk on a school night instead of doing work.

wgrr.com

Mac and Cheese: You’re the nerd of the group. Your GPA is either a 4.0 or you spend every night crying about your 3.9. You love the mac and cheese life because its the easiest to make at 3am when you finally get home from (kicked out of) the library. Maybe one Saturday you need to put down the books and explore your college’s night life. It may drop your HW grade .1 point, but that is what college is about.

bwbx.io

Chicken: You have your sh*t together. You have a 5 year plan, an internship this summer, a job lined up for after college, the perfect boyfriend, and the best roommates. Keep doing you girl! Keep working at your life because trust me, even if you don’t think its perfect, everyone has you as their #lifegoals. You are rocking that Lilly planner!! You do you!!!

cookdiary.net

Chinese Take-out: Pull yourself together. You may not have seen the freshmen 15 hit, but it will. And when it does you’ll feel it. You can’t spend every night up till 5 am  watching TV and “hanging out” with every person on your floor. This isn’t high school. You have to start pulling your weight in group projects and actually doing your homework. People are gunna notice if you ask to copy theirs every night, and they won’t be nice about it. Call home, go to the gym, and eat a salad. Your tight pants and tired mind will thank me.

12 Things to Thank Your Best Friend from Home For

We have a lot to thank the person who has stuck with us since our awkward preteen/high school years. They saw us through our worst acne and our worst taste in fashion, but they’re still around. This one’s for them.

12. Thank you for helping me pick the best filter for my selfies.

You never judge when I send you three versions of the same picture and ask which one is prettier. And you’re usually right.

11. Thank you for wanting the best for me.

I know I go to school too far away for your liking, but thank you for understanding that it’s the place that makes me happy. Thank you for scrutinizing my taste in men because you don’t want to see my heart broken. Thank you for demanding that I treat myself better than I do.

10. Thank you for the laughter.

The moments when I’m doubled over, tears rolling down my face, and unable to breathe because I’m laughing so hard are my favorites, and I sure do have a lot of them with you. We bring out the weirdest parts of each other’s sense of humor, and I couldn’t ask for more.

9. Thank you for the silent moments.

I truly believe nothing marks a strong friendship quite like the ability to share a comfortable silence. Though we rarely run out of things to say, I love that we enjoy each other’s presence without having to say a word.

8. Thank you for sharing your family with me. 

Nothing beats how your parents and your dog are always more excited to see me than you are. Throughout the years, I’ve come to love your family like they’re my own. Thanks for letting me crash family gatherings, or for sending your sister to come get me when my car battery died back in high school.

7. Thank you for posting those Timehop pictures.

Yeah we were awkward and ugly, but we were having fun. My favorite days (most days) are the ones where I get to see exactly where we were 5 or 6 years ago, and smile at how much has changed since then. I’m amazed at who we were, and even more amazed at who we’ve become.

10 Reasons To Love Being Disaffiliated For Recruitment

At my school, we’re Rho Gammas. Every campus has a different name for us, but every group does the same thing: we take off our letters to help you find yours. Wether you’re a recruitment counselor or a member of Panhel Exec board, it can be hard (and kind of sad) to be separated from your sisters, at least publicly. Luckily, there are some perks.

10. MORE T-SHIRTS


Since we can’t wear the plethora of shirts we have with our own chapter on them, being disaffiliated kind of eliminates your entire wardrobe. So, we obviously have to do an order of shirts that say Rho Gamma, or Pi Chi, or whatever on them. Right?

9. Getting to know other disaffiliated girls.


If your group is paired with the group of a girl you barely know, you’re about to spend 45 minutes eating food and sitting in a stranger’s bedroom with said girl. Chances are you’re gonna find something to talk and laugh about. The next time you see her on campus, you both smile and say hello and maybe make plans to grab coffee. And isn’t that what being a Greek woman is all about?

8. Getting the inside scoop.


As their recruitment counselor, the PNMs come to you with tough decisions. If they’re torn between to houses, you know about it. And you, with your infinite wisdom, get to help them figure out which one fits them better. You also know which girls become horrible and catty the second they step out of the houses.

7. Recruitment Week is a lot less stressful for us.


The week leading up to recruitment? That pretty much sucks. But we don’t have the pressure of impressing the girls, following your Recruitment Chair’s dress code, asking the right questions, and making sure you’re perfectly Panhellenic. We just have to put them in alphabetical order and hold their shit. Boom.

6. The questions.


The PNMs want nothing more than to figure out our affiliation. They will ask and guess and try to stalk our social media through its airtight security (thanks, Panhel). It’s fun to hear their guesses. It’s also fun to try and trick them. It’s even more fun when they figure out they get to be your sister.

10 Things A Woman Should Live By

No matter how stable a person is or how old they are, they need a road map of some sort. For women we sometimes need to be told things in order to believe it. We are complicated creatures and that is all I have to say on that matter. By being these complicated creatures we should always be knowledgeable about life. It’s how we have a leg up an the boys.

10.Know What You Are

Yes you are aware that you are a female that is not what I’m talking about. I’m saying that you to know how the people that are in your life see you. Know that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you even think that you are. As girls we are our own worst critic and we are hardest on ourselves. So other people see us as superheros while we see ourselves as just regular civilians. Christopher Robin said, ” Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You can really do hard things!” Now if you can’t take advice from one of the greatest childhood cartoons than I don’t know what to tell you.

balls

9. Smiling

Cosmetically, smiling uses less muscles so therefore you get less wrinkles so everybody wins! But seriously if you take the time that you have while you’re waiting to fall asleep, to think about your life you will realize some crazy things. Like how loved you really are even if you don’t feel it sometimes. That you are someone special, because as corny as it is, there is no one else like you. They may come close but it will never be exact.With all the hussle and bussle of the world you can forget all of these great things especially when it feels like the world is coming at you full force. When it seems that no one is giving you love know the the Big Man upstairs has all the love.

smile

8. Having The Best Of The Best

I’m speaking of the people that you allow into your life. You do NOT deserve the scum of the Earth to be able to be blessed with all of the awesomeness that makes you, well you. This is why you should surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher. It isn’t very fun climbing this ladder of life and you get knocked down by some selfish jerk. Oprah says that, “as women, we need to be with those that support us and help us become the person we want to become. Not only hang out with those who are good for you, but be the good for others too.”

surround

7. Disappointment is Okay

Timing is so critical to making life work. It can be a total inconvenience or it can save our butts. Sometimes disappointments are just God’s way of saying “I’ve got something better coming for you.” Sometime we can’t control everything and sometimes that is okay.

dog

6. WWDD: What Would Dory Do?

Yes I brought Dory into this. Because she has the simplest fix to life. So life is going down hill and it scares you, so what do you do? YOU SWIM! Just keep swimming just keep swimming. Look now that song is stuck in your head and you have some pep in your step. You’re welcome.
