The CC Weekly Weigh In: Girly Girls

Farts make me laugh. A lot.
I talk about poop with my girlfriends on a daily basis.
I prefer a pitcher of beer to a martini any day.

Yet, despite spending my Saturdays watching college football with the boys, I am a pretty girly girl at my core. I love playing with makeup, trying on clothes just for fun, and lots and lots of smelly candles (there is a pumpkin one burning as we speak). And what’s wrong with that? I’m a girl and I can’t help acting like one.

No matter how much we all hate the overly girly Elle Woods’ of the world, we all have a little of her inside of us (hopefully not the part with the feathery pink pens). So this week I asked the CollegeCandy writers to share their girliest tendencies.

What’s yours?

Ricki – University of Michigan: I lock really sweet text messages so I can show them to my friends and read them when I’m sad

Kayla – California State University, Sacramento: I make this horrendously girly, high pitched squeal at things I consider cute. A baby? Squeal. Puppy? Squeal. My boyfriend doing…anything? Squeal.

Thu – USC : I get super nervous around guys I like. My mind races to put sentences together.

John – UConn: My girlfriend regularly berates me for having “confusing, erratic mood swings” and being “irrationally emotional.”

Charlsie – Hollins: I obsess about painting my nails. The majority of the time I have some type of nail polish on (usually a pink or red), but when I catch myself without some, I tend to freak out.

Lauren – University of Michigan: I spend one night a week watching cheesy romantic comedies with a bag of pretzels and a tub of Fun-fetti frosting. Alone.

Kari- Florida State: I buy Modern Bride every other month and hide them in my closet for future referencing…just in case I forget that I want ice sculpture vases for my centerpieces when I’m planning my actual wedding.

Melissa – GW: Probably blasting the music obnoxiously loud in my car with friends, windows down, all rocking the latest bug-eyed shades, screaming the lyrics so that anyone in the streets can hear, thinking we are all so cool.  Even though I always roll my eyes whenever I see other girls doing the same.

Sarabeth – University of Texas: I’m a 1950s housewife…I make casseroles, a damn good meatloaf, and pies from scratch.

Ness – Sheridan: I make others squish the spiders and other various creepy crawlies in my apartment. I just can’t do it!

Sara C – Fordham: Besides the fact that I could probably eat any quantity of chocolate you put in front of my face, I’m definitely that girl in the dressing room asking her friend, “does this make my butt look big?” Gee, maybe those two could be related!

Lindsay – University of Texas: I get french manicures once a week and watch High School Musical 3. I don’t do those on the same day, but I do love me some choreographed dancing accompanied with horrible acting.

Mechelle – Florida State: One word: SHOES.

Carly – Grinnell: I feel really self-conscious about pimples. I can’t help it! I just want to cover them up however I can.

Caitlin – University of Alabama: I use my cramps as an excuse for whatever I can, especially the need to eat excessive amounts of chocolate.

Liza M – Minnesota: I’m obsessed with all things weddings. I watch Say Yes To The Dress and Whose Wedding Is It Anyway obsessively to get “ideas” about hair, rings, dresses, flowers… even though I’m not going to be married for a L O N G time.

Maddie – Tufts: Preferring dessert to real food… it’s no joke that we gals have a sweet tooth.

Marisa – Wesleyan University: I say “like” a lot and tend to talk pretty fast. But I balance it out by saying “dude” all the time. I feel like I belong in the 70s, man.

Cristina – Michigan State: Constantly applying and reapplying lip balm/gloss. It starts even annoy ME.
