Morning Roundup 02/25/13: 10 Things for Teenage Girls; Social Media in 2013

Katee has a new book B&H coming out on these ten things for teenage girls. Good stuff.

Ten Things I Want To Tell Teenage Girls -- Kate Conner

1. If you choose to wear shirts that show off your boobs, you will attract boys. To be more specific, you will attract the kind of boys that like to look down girls' shirts...

2. Don't go to the tanning bed...

3. When you talk about your friends "anonymously" on Facebook, we know exactly who you're talking about. People are smarter than you think they are. Stop posting passive-aggressive statuses about the myriad of ways your friends disappoint you.

4. Newsflash: the number of times you say "I hate drama" is a pretty good indicator of how much you love drama. Non-dramatic people don't feel the need to discuss all the drama they didn't start and aren't involved in.

5. "Follow your heart" is probably the worst advice ever.

6. Never let a man make you feel weak or inferior because you are an emotional being. Emotion is good; it is nothing to be ashamed of. Emotion makes us better - so long as it remains in it's proper place: subject to truth and reason...

9. Don't play coy or stupid or helpless to get attention. Don't pretend something is too heavy so that a boy will carry it for you...

10. You are beautiful. You are enough...

Here is an interesting video about social media.
