Ladies, we put a lot of effort into becoming experts in the men we love, but do we ever put so much effort into becoming experts in ourselves? This clip – part comedy, party spoken word might make you stop and think a bit. My favorite line: “Study hard, bitches! You’ve got a paper due Monday morning titled ‘My Man Wants To Be Treated Like A Man But Won’t Act Like One!'” Have a fabulous weekend, lovahs!
