It's a Ginge Thing

Graduation

As a junior in college it’s always hard for me each semester to say goodbye to friends for the summer, but it’s especially hard for me to say goodbye to those who are graduating. When I was a freshman I was placed in a sophomore hallway so majority of my friends are leaving me this year to go out into the real world and start their lives. This year has definitely been one for the books, and I will never forget those people who have impacted my life in the way that they have – plus, I know that during their hectic schedules working 9-5 jobs they will find the time to come back and rage with me at school.

I am dedicating this post to all of my friends that are moving on to do bigger and better things with their lives especially my only ginger friends that are leaving. I’ll miss my friend Jimmy – as much as he has grown to hate me for constantly calling him out on being a ginger, I will miss being able to call him out and embarrass him for being a ginger – I will also miss constantly making him take “ginger pictures” with me…guess I’ll have to recruit some more redheads. Jimmy is one awkwardly funny son of a bitch – like most gingers – and I’ll definitely miss him. My other ginger friend, Hillary, is also leaving me this year. Hillary is a flaming ginger. Her hair is much more red than mine, in fact it’s pretty much a bright shade of orange – one of those gingers. I’ll miss having Hillary around because sometimes it’s beneficial not being the biggest flaming ginger around and I thank her for constantly getting more shit than I do. Hillary and I will always be ginger sisters though. She is so crazy and funny I will miss her tons!

I’m not sure what I’m going to do being the only ginger around next year but hopefully I’ll be able to make friends with some new ones so I’m not the only one in my group of friends being made fun of. Sometimes it’s fun when us gingers are together and people make fun of us because we can make fun of them together for being boring and normal. It’s a little hard to rebuttal solo, but gingers always prevail in the end so I’m not really worried about it.

Good luck seniors everywhere graduating both college and highschool…especially good luck to all the gingers out there who are going to make big things happen and eventually rule the world! :)

Dad

I am a readhead, you all know that, so naturally I get my flawless locks from a member of my family – that person is my father, Ken. My dad is the best guy I know and I love him more than anything! He is literally the coolest ginger that has ever walked the face of the earth and there is no doubt about it. Ken is so funny, laid back, and just the best dad any gingkin could wish for.

Now that I’ve rubbed it in everyone’s face how my dad is better than theirs, I think this story will pretty much convince you all that he is. Last night Ken was at the Red Sox game – shout out to all you bostonians out there – sitting directly next to the dugout. That alone is unreal. He literally could reach right on in and give somebody a big ole’ ging hug if he wanted too. He was texting me pictures of Pedroia, Ortiz, and even some of the managers all night obviously to rub it in my face that he was totally killin’ it at the game. I have met Youkilis before so this didn’t really phase me to an extent, especially since they were losing. It wasn’t until my dad sent me this picture that I really got jealous.

If you aren’t a Boston sports fan you deserve to burn in hell (just kidding…but really) and you probably have no idea who this is. This beautiful man standing next to my father – my dad being the ginger on the left…not that obvious – is none other that Milan Lucic. He plays for the Boston Bruins and is literally a god. This picture is gold. Ken completely owning the entire thing because his hair is phenomenal – mind your he is 57 and still has the ging-fro – and Lucic is just straight reppin the sox even after the bruins devastating loss just last week. That’s what Boston is about. Unity, and gingers…minus the gingers.

God damn you dad. #longhairdontcare

Kids

Okay so nobody would really know this but I love little kids so much! Babies, tots, just up until the peak age of eight or so and I’m in love. They are literally the cutest, and funniest people on the face of the earth and I think it’s safe to say nobody can deny that. I came across this video the other day and was  falling off my chair laughing because of how god damn cute this six year old is. Smart, charming, hilarious – does it get any better than that? The best part about it is that he has an undeniable love for redheads, at the age of six! He even has a ginger girlfriend who is 26….kid is obviously the man. You guys seriously ALL have to check it out it is literally the cutest thing ever I had to share. It’s an interview of him on the Ellen DeGeneres Show talking about his love for redheads and his fascination of the solar system. Definitely something you have to watcht!!

 

Leslie is a very lucky girl.

Watch out, Katniss.

PCB

Well, it’s safe to say it’s been awhile and I do apologize for that. As some of you may know, I traveled to Panama City Beach Florida over my spring break and have been attempting to recover ever since. It was a wild ride to say the least.

Besides the bus being an hour and a half late to pick us up, waiting an hour and a half at a gas station in New Jersey because the bus driver forgot the papers, having a two-hour delay in Virginia when some kid on our bus was tripping on acid and ran away so the state police had to find him, a 4.5 hour delay when we got a flat tire in south carolina, a 3 hour delay when the new tire shred, and a 6 hour wait when our bus finally shit the bed an hour away from our resort….the trip was amazing! It truly was a bus ride from HELL…also a close comparison in temperature considering the bus didn’t have air conditioning and it was hot and humid…..how do you expect a ginger who already has a natural body temperature higher than most to survive in extremely high temperatures? It wasn’t a joyful experience.

Aside from the 48 hour-long bus ride that was supposed to take 24 hours, the trip was AWESOME. I had the time of my life and got to share it with some of the best people I know and love. Our days consisted of lounging on the beach, playing volleyball and doing fun activities like parasailing and banana boating, and our evenings consisted of going out to the bars and clubs that were located on the strip. The best part of my trip was the fact that there were SO.MANY.GINGERS. Hundreds of us. Literally everywhere I turned I wondered if I had died and gone to red-head heaven which, by the way, doesn’t actually exist because everyone knows none of us have souls.

I naturally approached nearly every ginger I saw and offered them sunscreen because I knew how critical it was..in fact my parents both texted me multiple times a day making sure I had applied the proper amount. Me and whichever fellow ginger I would talk to would share our thoughts on how awesome we were and then take a picture for this lovely blog of mine to share with all of you! I have attached only some of the photos in a slide show because not nearly all of them would fit so I hope you enjoy!
