10 Signs You Went to a Girls’ School

10 Signs You Went to a Girls’ School

Going to an all girl’s school has its benefits and disadvantages. If you went to an all girls’ school, you really know what it was like. While it wasn’t all perfect, it wasn’t all bad either. So what’s it like going to an all girls’ school? Find out here:

1. You experienced twice the amount of drama

Girls in high school can be downright mean and having an all-female student body, doubles the drama. There is more room for cliques and mean girl behavior in this environment and it can be torture if you happen to be excluded from the in-crowd.

2. You didn’t have to worry about boys

One benefit of an girls’ school is that you don’t have the distraction of boys in any of your classes. This makes it easier to focus and contribute in class without worrying about embarrassing yourself in front of your crush in history class. It is scientifically proven that girls performed better in this environment than if they were at a co-ed environment.

3. You did miss having guys friends at school

Sometimes it is ice to have a couple of guy friends to hang out and escape the drama that is common within your group of girlfriends. In a school backed with other girls you did not have the chance to hang out with guys until after school. Finding a solid group of guy friends may have taken some time because you had to look for them outside of school.

4. You didn’t have to put as much effort into your appearance

Getting ready for school wass a breeze because you know that there is no cute guy in history to impress. Your everyday uniform does not vary from t-shirts, jeans and minimal make-up. Dressing more casually, allows you to focus on other things, like studying an extra half an hour for your AP English exam.

5. You felt awkward in encounters with males outside of school

When you are attending an all-girl’s school, interaction with males is often slim and reserved for weekends and dances. When you go to a co-ed school it is a reflection of the real world and allows you to practice interacting with males in varying types of situations that a female-only school does not provide.

6. You weren’t feel embarrassed to excel

In co-ed schools girls often feel embarrassed to show their skill in math or science due to an unspoken rule that this is a male-dominated area. When boys are not present in the classroom, girls often do not feel as intimidated and learn that they can really shine in these areas as much as their male-counterparts.

7. You had a crush on the young cute male teacher

When there is a lack of testosterone in your school and a young male teacher is present, there is bound to be at least a few crushes on him. Although this situation many seem innocent, this can create a great amount of distraction and competition during class among students vying for his attention.

8. You easily found feminine products when it is your time of the month

When your period unexpectedly happens and you need a tampon, you know you are bound to find at least one girl that has an extra one. You also know that all your classmates can be empathetic towards your situation, because they know the inconvenience firsthand. There is nothing like having a student body full of girls that understood your issues just as much as you understood theirs.

9. You had to play your fair share of male characters in the school play

Being the avid theater enthusiast that you are, you have learned to be versatile in not only the type of characters, but also learning to play the opposite sex. Time in girls’ schools may lead to numerous awkward moments on stage, but it likely made you a better actor in the end.

10. You weren’t limited to certain sports

In a co-ed school, boys’ sports teams can often outshine girls’ ones and provide more variety for males. In an all-girl’s school this is never an issue and you are free to try out for any team you want or if it does not exist you can petition to create one.

10 Things To Remember When Everything Goes Wrong

10 Things To Remember When Everything Goes Wrong

Problems and heartaches in life are inevitable. However, there are some things to remember when you’re right in the thick of it that can help you get through it. When everything seems to be going wrong, practice telling yourself these things.

1. This Too Shall Pass

Sometimes life’s rough patches feel like they’re going to last forever. Whether you’re dealing with work-related issues, family problems, or stressful situations, very few problems last for a lifetime. So remind yourself, that things won’t be this bad forever.

2. Some Things are Going Right

When things are going wrong, it’s hard to recognize what is going right. It’s easy to screen out the good things and only focus on the bad things. Remind yourself that some things are going right. Purposely look for the positive, even if it is something very small.

3. I Have Some Control

One of the most most important things to remember is that you have some control of the situation. Even if you aren’t in complete control of the situation, one thing you can always control is your attitude and reaction. Focus on managing what is within your control.

4. I Can Ask for Help

Asking for help can be hard sometimes. However, it’s one of the best ways to deal with tough situations. Tell people what you need specifically if they offer to help. Don’t be afraid to call on friends and family and ask them for help, whether you need financial assistance, emotional support, or practical help.

5. Much of This Won’t Matter in a Few Years

Most of the problems we worry about today won’t actually matter five years from now. Remind yourself that whatever is going wrong now is only a small percentage of your actual life. Even if you’re dealing with a major problem, like a loved one’s illness, remember that a lot of good things are likely to happen in the course of a year or two as well.

6. I Can Handle This

A lack of confidence in handling tough times can add to stress. One of the best things to remember is that you can handle tough situations. Even though you might feel angry, hurt, disappointed, or sad, it won’t kill you. You can get through it.

7. Something Good Will Come Out of This

No matter how bad a situation is, it’s almost certain that something good will come out of it. At the very least, it’s likely that you will learn a life lesson. Perhaps you learn not to repeat the same mistake in the future or maybe you move on from a bad situation and find something better. Look for the one good thing that can result when bad things happen.

8. I Can Accept What’s Out of my Control

There are many things that aren’t within your control. You can’t change the past, another person’s behavior, or a loved one’s health issues. Don’t waste time trying to force others to change or trying to make things be different if it isn’t within your control. Investing time and energy into trying to things you can’t will cause you to feel helpless and exhausted. Acceptance is one of the best way to establish resilience.

9. I Have Overcome Past Difficulties

One of the things to remember when you’re facing difficulties, is that you’ve handled problems in the past. Don’t overlook past difficulties that you’ve dealt with successfully. Remind yourself of all the past problems you’ve overcome and you’ll gain confidence in dealing with the current issues.

10. I Need to Take Care of Myself

When everything seems to be going wrong, take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest, get some exercise, eat healthy, and spend some time doing leisure activities. When you’re taking better care of yourself you’ll be better equipped to deal with your problems.
