9 Things All College Girls Should Be Grateful For On Thanksgiving, Whether They’re Single Or Taken

Sometimes in college, we get a little carried away by the things that grab our attention. Specifically, our significant others. It is important to remember that we have so many things to be thankful for beyond our partners.

Our quality of life is not based on relationship status, but instead on the things that make our lives full. Send a text or make a phone call to the people that make an impact on your life. Thanksgiving is not the time to take things for granted.

This year, don't forget to be thankful for...

1. Your college education

As college women, we are incredibly thankful for our access to education. Although sometimes I dread going to class in the winter, I try to remember the value of education.

2. Your college best friends

There's something special about your college best friends. They've seen you at your worst. They've seen you thrive. They're the people you celebrate your 21st birthday with and drag your drunk ass home from the bar when you've made mistakes. Don't forget to text them from home this Thanksgiving.

3. Making your parents proud

I live to make my parents proud. I push myself in my classes so that my family is will recognize my achievement. It's not about being the best in the world, but I want to be the best in their eyes. My parents sacrificed for my college education and I couldn't be more thankful.

4. Access to a support system

Don't forget to be thankful for all of the amazing people that support you through your education. Your advisors, supervisors, professors, friends and more. Your college community has helped to support you and your education. Non-college students don't always have the same network of attentive individuals.

5. Your campus involvement

Maybe it's your sorority sisters or maybe it's your favorite club, but these folks serve as a relief from the grind of college life. It is important to step away from the classroom with involvement and college wouldn't be as wonderful without your involvement.

6. The professor that changed your life

Our educators have the ability to change our lives. Professors touch our lives when they are passionate about the topics that they teach. For some of us, they're the reason that we've changed career paths or the reason we got our dream jobs.

7. Your ex is no longer in your life

Whether your single like a pringle or wifed up, you can always be thankful for not being with your ex. They are canceled and it is something to celebrate daily.

8. Being politically engaged

College gives you the opportunity to learn about the value of political engagement. I never saw the importance of participating in local elections, until I moved to a small college town.

9. Your bright future

As a future college graduate, your future is endlessly bright. Don't forget to be grateful for all of the excitement to come in your life. You're almost there, finish strong.

10 Signs The Guy You're Texting During Sylly Week Will Be Your Boyfriend By Finals Week

Trust me hunny, if he is actually interested, you can tell.


We've all had that guy in our message thread that we have a crush on but can't tell if he does too. It's a little nerve wrecking because us girls don't want to say to much and make him flee. It's a give and take kind of game that can be fun or stressful. When texting a guy, it's always a gamble.

Here are 10 signs that will tell you if he actually likes you:

1. He texts YOU first 

This is super, super telling. If he really likes you, he will want to initiate conversation. Plus, this means he is thinking about you.

2. He sends long, thought out messages 

Typically, guys aren't the biggest texters. They usually send short and to the point messages, but if he is sending you long and carefully constructed texts, you are heading in the right direction.

3. He texts you when he wakes up 

Everybody knows this is of extreme importance. There are so many things a guy thinks about when he first wakes up so if you receive that message it means you were one of the first things that came to his mind.

4. When you don't text back right away he asks what you were doing 

The longer you take, he either wont think anything of it or he will think nonstop why you're not responding. So, If he asks what you were doing you know he's interested.

5. He makes it a point to text throughout the day 

Guys typically hate texting and don't do it often. So if he texts you all day long you are important in his daily life.

6. Compliments, compliments, compliments 

Compliments tell it all! If he constantly is genuinely complimenting you he is 100% interested.

7. He is always asking you questions about yourself 

If he does this he wants to get to know you better, which is a very good sign.

8. He tries to make you laugh

Making a significant other laugh is normally incredibly important. So if he is always trying to make you laugh and it's successful, you are on the right track.

9. He lets you know what y'all would be doing if he was with you 

This means he is thinking and fantasizing about you and imagining what it would be like to be with you—the best sign you could receive.

10. He texts you when he is drunk 

Listen up girls, if he is texting you and he is blackout drunk then this is tell tale sign. Guys can rarely even remember their name when they are drunk let alone text. So, if this happens you are definitely on his mind.

There are always signs to let you know if a guy really likes you. Here are just a couple to give a little insider, but if he does these then girl you've got nothing to worry about. Go get him, girl.

10 Reactions You Have When Your Ex-Boyfriend Has A BABY, As Told By Michael Gary Scott

"Oh, my God! OK, it's happening!"


I don't know if I'm still too young or already old enough for my ex-lovers to start having children but either way, I'm freaking out.

Whether it's my ex or my friends, I am in utter shock because it's a reminder that I am not getting any younger. I'm stepping into a realm that I've never traverse before, and in all honesty, I don't think I'm ready.

There's nothing wrong about them having a child, settling down, and doing their thing but how the hell did time fly so fast? It's just that I can barely make my bed every day, let alone change a miniature human's diaper.

These were my reactions while stalking my ex on Instagram, as told by Michael Scott:

1. When you first hear the news 

2. "Wait how old were we?" 

3. "How old am I?" 

4. "No I'm not THAT old... am I?" 

5. "Can someone please tell me how and when did this happen?" 

6. "OMG, it's so small and chubbers" 

7. Two words—baby fever 

8. Then you remind yourself that you can't even take care of yourself 

9. Miss emotions about the whole ordeal 

10. You're actually really happy for them
