7 Unspoken Rules of Visiting the Jersey Shore

Alright, so before we begin, let’s get the stereotypes out of the way. Those that live in New Jersey are not all about the gold chain, GTL (gym, tan, and laundry), being in the mob, always being at a diner, or having big hair. While some of that may be true – especially the part about diners – going “down the shore” is big part of our culture that speaks volumes about our beloved state.

3 Words That Aren’t Used Enough

Too many times there are fantastic words that fall through the cracks of our culture and society. Just like bringing retro colors back from the 80’s, I am going to petition to bring back these words just because of their awesomeness.

“Wigging Out”

Don’t ask me why I used this the other day. I have no idea, but once it slipped past my lips, I said to myself damn I should use that more often. When someone is “wigging out” it usually refers to freaking out or they are anxious about something. You usually get an uncomfortable feeling when someone is wigging out around you because you can’t quite get them to come back down to reality and calm down.
