Kristen’s Team Pick:
Okay kids! It’s 33 days until A-camp! That’s two more PLL episodes, four more hilarious TRLW recaps and nineteen more opportunities to help us out! How many shades of excited are you? I’m just one, green, because I’m not going this time around. But don’t worry, that week I’ll sleep in a make-shift blanket tent and eat my body weight in s’mores in solidarity.
No matter where you’re going, whether it’s A-Camp, Space Camp or Girls Rock Camp, there is that unsure First Time. There are so many little things to think about. Did you remember to pack your toothbrush? Who’s going to take care of your pets/plants? Do you have enough undies? What will you do for the talent show?
Luckily a ten year old boy typed up some sound advice on just that topic and Jezebel managed to get their hands on it. His words of wisdom?
Smart isn’t dorky.
Asking a girl out isn’t a yes or no question (If they say maybe, say never mind)
Don’t play Hard to Get
No talking about TV shows in case the person you’re talking to finds the show boring
Must know how to dance
No looking at other girls while with your girlfriend
He warns you about six questions you should always avoid, so head on over to Jezebel to take notes. Although you could read this as the musings of a child sized pick up artist, I’ll take it as honest-to-goodness How to Talk to Cute Girls in a Bunkbed-Type Situation advice. Seriously, this kid is wise. Especially the dancing bit. So in preparation for A-Camp, practice your moves, double-check your toiletry kit and remember that smart isn’t dorky.
