We Found The Cure: 15 Ways To Be Less Basic

The term “basic,” used to describe the Starbucks drinking, Instagram using, pizza eating, girl has been popping up everywhere. Whether you’ve read it in an article or watched College Humor and Lohanthony’s viral videos, you’ve probably already diagnosed yourself with the terrible “basic” disease.

But nobody wants to be a typical girl. They’re boring. And being the same as every other chick won’t get you anywhere. So, this whole “basic” epidemic got us thinking, and we’ve found a solution. All of these sites and videos tell you that you ARE basic and give you reasons why, but none of them tell you how to avoid being basic and cure yourself. So we’ve got just what the doctor ordered.

Unfortunately, some of the damage might be irreversible, like the fact that you wore Victoria’s Secret sweatpants with the word “PINK” across the butt in 8th grade and you Instagrammed 29,834,901 pictures of your food last week (even if you delete them, your “friends” already saw them), but we’ve found 15 ways to help you be less average. And you better read them, because let’s be honest, the only people that want to be friends with basic girls are other basic girls, and like nice guys, basic girls always finish last in the dating world. So if you’re a “basic,” which im 99.9% sure you are, check out our slideshow and then get off your computer and go do something interesting!

And don’t forget to check out: 10 Things You Can Actually Learn In A Sorority, A Defense of High Waisted Mom Jeans, and 10 Celebrities It’s OK To Have A Crush On.
