I know what you’re thinking.
Why have you already insulted me?! We haven’t even met!
I’m so sorry. Where are my manners?
And your name is? Oh, Loser? Hmm, that’s interesting. Were your parents hippies?
Anyway, lovely to meet you, and thanks for stopping by our blog. Oh and please don’t make up fake plans about a cooler blog you have to be at 5 minutes from now when you realize there are no cute boys here. Everyone knows you can only make up fake plans after 20 minutes has passed. A-duh.
Back to our point. This blog is for girls, by girls. Because why should you take advice from some 45 year old guy, or worse, some expert?
Besides, if expertise requires 10,000 hours of practice, we are basically experts on teen girldom. We both have 61,320 hours of experience in growing pains, heartache and general mortification. We’ve definitely been there and cried about that.
We are recent college graduates and best friends. We created this blog for our little sisters,
because we would have loved having advice from a big sister, but we were stuck being big sisters instead. We had no choice but to learn the hard way, by giving each other bad advice, and employing trial and error…emphasis on the error.
No matter what you’re going through, you’re not alone. Don’t think you’re the chosen one. There is no ‘why me?’ in growing up. We all go through the hazing. And while we’ve managed to make it through our adolescence, we are still idiots. We screw up frequently and think, ‘wait, we’re giving other people advice?!’
But that’s the point. We are just girls. We’re not role models. We aren’t holier than thou, or you. We aren’t prim and perfect. Or perfect-ly bo-ring! HIGH-FIVE!
Anyway, we aren’t here to judge you, we’re just here to help. We want to start a conversation, not draw ironclad conclusions. If anything, we are just asking that you think, which is sort of ironic since your prefrontal cortex isn’t fully developed yet. (Cue condescending laughter)
We titled the blog ‘stop being a loser’ because we say it a lot, as a joke. And it cuts to the chase. We can only hope you have a sense of humor. If you don’t, you probably left ten insults ago. In which case, WE NEVER LIKED YOU ANYWAY!
(Doorslam. Burst into tears. Blast Linkin Park. Stare longingly at your picture)
This blog is not about how to be mean, or perfect, or exclusive, or a bitchface, or a facebook whore. It’s not about clawing your way to the top of the high school food chain. It’s about how to deal with those tools. And how (and why) not to be one.
We hope you enjoy it, Loser!
