12 Struggles Only Only Daughters Who Grew Up With Brothers Know

“This isn’t the WWE” is a commonly used phrase.

12 Struggles Only Only Daughters Who Grew Up With Brothers Know

Being the only daughter in the family is both a blessing and a curse: the main advantage of being the only girl is that you are the princess so you tend to get away with things more easily, BUT you are also subject to living with gross, unfiltered, testosterone-driven boys. Don’t get me wrong, it has its perks—like knowing they will beat up any guy who ever hurts you. Sometimes, however, being the only girl can get frustrating and overwhelming...

1. Boys are disgusting.


Farting, burping on command, wearing the same clothes three days in a row — it gets old real fast.

2. They're lazy and unorganized.


“When is the last time you cleaned your room?”

“I don’t know, the last time mom cleaned it.”

3. They beat the crap out of each other ALL THE TIME.


“Boys will be boys” is a cute phrase until someone breaks their collarbone.

4. Boys can be just as dramatic as girls.


God forbid someone accidentally changes the channel on the TV while they watch football.

5. They are so damn competitive.

“I bet you I can chug this root beer faster than you.” There’s just no need for it.

6. If they know something annoys you, they will do it to no end.

The minute you say “stop” to something they’re doing, they continue to do it, except faster or in some way more irritating.


But then they just leave the empty box/container where it was, instead of throwing it out like a normal person.

8. They're usually the ones pissing off mom or dad.

Therefore, you have to live with the consequences of their dumb actions.

9. They have zero sense of style.

“Nice groutfit.”

10. They won't let themselves be seen in public with you.

How is it that THEY are the ones embarrassed by ME?

11. They will never actually say "I love you" to your face.

Any time you show them affection it’s either “get away from me” or some sort of unenthused moan.

12. But they will always have your back at the end of the day.

Brother & Sister

Despite all these annoyances, brothers definitely make you laugh until you cry and will always be there to support you (even if they’ve made you “tough” enough.)

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
