7 Types of Party Girls You’ll Find at Any Holiday Party

My name is Alexcis. We have all experienced, one way or another, seeing or being a certain type of party girl.

These are the most common you will find at any party you got to. Now that it’s winter break and you’re home for the holidays, you might just find yourself being or partying with one of them. See which one you and your friends are!

1. The Emotional Party Girl

She’s the girl that once alcohol has entered her system turns into the biggest baby of all. Probably worse than any toddler because the problems she is crying her yes out for are most likely schoolwork, boys, and anything possible from that past that she hates about herself. She will most likely have makeup running down her face and will cling to anyone that will hear her out.

2. The Mom

There’s always one in every friend group. You can easily find her by looking to see if she is the sober, holding some girl’s hair while she pukes, or yelling at a friend for being too drunk.  She takes care of you, yells at you, and occasionally finds you when you disappear. Most of all she either knows how to hold her liquor or goes out completely sober.

3. The Runner

Usually too drunk to function, this girl likes to sprint off without a single sound or word. She can be dancing right next to you and in a split second is halfway across the campus at another party. She tends to lose her phone or have the battery die and can be difficult to find. She may seem slow sober but a drop of liquor has her running close to Usain Bolt’s speed.

4. The Seducer

Very flirty and will try to hook any guy in sight, this type of girl, usually single but sometimes may have a boyfriend, just does not even care. Shell flirt with her eyes, use her body, and say anything to get the guy’s attention. More often than not it works and she goes home a winner. If she doesn’t get the guy she will need to be reassured of how pretty she is about 27 times from any other guy at the party. She will abandon friends and not give two shits about it.

 6. The Snapper 

She is going to snapchat every moment of the party. She’ll make you look like a puppy when you take that shot of vodka and she’ll slo-mo you making out with that creepy guy so you’ll never forget it, at least not for the next 24 hours.

6. Starving Sally

Any type of food mentioned at a party gets this girl going. She will leave the party for that $1 slice of pizza and go right back when she’s done. She will also eat so much that you have no idea how she is going to stomach it all. This girl will also abandon any guy she is talking to just to go home and cuddle up against a box or two of pizza from her favorite place. Nothing gets in the way of a party girl and her food.

7. The Girl Who Is Giving the Party Life

The life of the party! Every party needs one, every party girl needs one to party with. She’s the girl making sure everyone is having a great time. She’s dancing, drinking, mingling, and setting the vibe.

Say hello to the iCar? Volkswagen turns to Apple for help making electric cars

Volkswagen is looking at Apple products for guidance on how to style its new generation of electric cars, its top designer said, as the automaker aims to turn profits on battery-powered vehicles when they launch in 2020.

The U.S. tech giant has brought about a design aesthetic with its iPhone and iPad that set it apart from rivals such as Samsung Electronics Co Ltd; and Sony Corp and helped make it the most valuable company in the world.

For Europe’s biggest automaker, adopting simplicity as the guiding principle for future styling of electric vehicles (EVs) marks a departure from the era before its 2015 “dieselgate” emissions scandal, when vehicle design conveyed the German group’s engineering prowess and technological ambitions.

“We are currently redefining the Volkswagen values for the age of electrification,” Klaus Bischoff, head of VW brand design, said in an interview. “What’s at stake is to be as significant, purist and clear as possible and also to visualize a completely new architecture.”

With regulators slashing emissions on a fast timetable, dieselgate has also energized the costly shift to EVs that is necessary to compete in China, VW’s largest market, and to avoid future fines in Europe.

Previously a laggard on electrification, VW has pledged 34 billion euros ($42.45 billion) of investment in EVs, self-driving technology and digital mobility businesses across the group by 2022.

The core namesake brand alone will spend 6 billion euros on a new modular platform dubbed MEB designed to underpin over 20 purely battery-powered models such as the I.D. hatchback, I.D. Crozz crossover and the I.D. Buzz microbus.

Bischoff said VW will use the Geneva auto show on March 5-7 to give early guidance on what the post-I.D. generation of EVs might look like, but declined to elaborate.

Bischoff belongs to VW’s old guard, having worked a quarter of a century in VW’s design operations and the past decade as head of the core brand’s design.

He became famous through a video shot at the 2011 Frankfurt auto show that has since drawn over 2 million hits on YouTube.

It showed Bischoff being yelled at by former CEO Martin Winterkorn, who was inspecting a model by South Korean rival Hyundai and had discovered something that had displeased him.

“In the past everything was very centralized, very narrow boundaries were set on the road of success,” Bischoff said. “Today is the most exciting time of my career because I’m allowed to do things that didn’t use to exist that way.”

‘People would die for Olympic medal, I nearly did’

Canada’s Mark McMorris described his comeback from life-threatening injuries to the podium at the Pyeongchang Olympics as a “miracle” and said inspiring others with his story was worth more than the slopestyle bronze he won on Sunday.

Snowboarding near his home in British Columbia with his brother Craig in March, McMorris caught an edge as he took off for a jump and spiraled into a tree.

He broke his jaw and left arm, ruptured his spleen, suffered a pelvic fracture, rib fractures and a collapsed lung.

“People would die for a medal at the Olympics and I nearly did,” he said on Monday, a day after his medal-winning run at the Phoenix Snow Park.

“It’s definitely a miracle and I’m really thankful… to be able to motivate and inspire others – that’s bigger than any medal, right?”

McMorris’ remarkable comeback drew praise from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who tweeted: “What a journey back to the podium for @MarkMcMorris. Mark – your tenacity and courage inspire so many of us.”

McMorris tweeted two photographs on Monday, one of him in the hospital following his crash and the other on the medal podium. They were accompanied by a caption: “Thank You Life.”

The Canadian could add yet another chapter to his success story before the end of the Games, as McMorris is seen as a gold medal contender in the new Olympic discipline of Big Air.

Tokyo elementary school is so EXTRA AF with Armani uniforms for students

A public elementary school in Tokyo’s upscale shopping district of Ginza has raised parents’ eyebrows with a plan to adopt uniforms designed by Italian fashion brand Giorgio Armani for its students, media said on Thursday.

Taimei Elementary School is introducing the uniforms for incoming pupils, each costing more than 80,000 yen ($729), including optional items, or more than three times as much as current ones, the Huffington Post said.

Armani’s Japan head office, located in Ginza, is just 200 meters (219 yards) away from the grade school.

“I was surprised, and wondered why such luxury brand-designed uniforms have been picked for a public elementary school,” an unnamed mother was quoted by the Huffington Post as saying.

“I’m worried that a wrong notion that something expensive is good and something cheap is bad could be imprinted on children,” said the woman, whose child is set to start at the school in April, when a new school year begins.

In a letter to parents last November, headmaster Toshitsugu Wada said Taimei was a landmark in Ginza, and the decision to adopt the Armani-designed uniforms aimed at creating an atmosphere suitable for such a school, the Huffington Post said.

Taimei officials were not immediately available for comment, but Wada posted a statement on the school’s home page, promising to provide sufficient explanation on the plan for new uniforms.

“With humility, I take the criticism that explanation has been insufficient and not well-timed. I will go on explaining carefully to those concerned.”
