20 Truths Of Sisterhood When You're The Only Girl

If you grew up with brothers, you can't even try to deny the truth that is to follow. And if you didn't, consider yourself (un)lucky.

1. You know for a fact that girl's definitely DON'T take the longest time to get ready.

2. You don't freak out about talking to guys because you've trained for this your entire life.

3. When your brother brings home a new girl, you don't judge her because you're petty, but because she could be your actual sister one day.

4. All of the sweatshirts, sweatpants, and t-shirts you've stolen from them are 10x more comfy than your own.

5. And they're willing to fight to the death to get them back (or just tell your mom).

6. You sometimes wish you had a sister.

7. And then you realize you escaped an over emotional, tear filled, drama riddled childhood and you're perfectly okay with that.

8. You still watch TV and say "that's you" when the villain/nerd/annoying character comes on screen.

9. You can't introduce yourself to a cute guy without getting the "Oh, are you ________'s sister?" response.

10. Now that you're older, there's an unspoken rule that "if you don't show Mom, I won't show Mom".

11. You still get flashbacks of sprinting to the shower in fear your brother would make it in there before you.

12. You're not even phased by your boyfriend's weird habits because you've been desensitized (aka watched your brothers eat spoonfuls of ketchup and pick ticks off of each other like monkeys).

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F17%2F636122695913702382692587951_giphy%2520%283%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=127&h=0766329b7551d9f2ce663605504ffef12f77c340002d1321476fc7dbf4520543&size=980x&c=2626993642 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F17%252F636122695913702382692587951_giphy%252520%25283%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D127%26h%3D0766329b7551d9f2ce663605504ffef12f77c340002d1321476fc7dbf4520543%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2626993642%22%7D" expand=1]

13. Attempts at finding the adult version of the feeling of awe you got while watching your sibling say something rude or snappy to your parents prove unsuccessful... because nothing quite compares to the power of Mom & Dad compelling them into next week.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F17%2F6361227028675333581031483314_giphy%2520%287%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=937&h=b3f64c164b3fec3332ec8a581f59d48b3388cea635ea707431c37eebe42667d2&size=980x&c=3536876414 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F17%252F6361227028675333581031483314_giphy%252520%25287%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D937%26h%3Db3f64c164b3fec3332ec8a581f59d48b3388cea635ea707431c37eebe42667d2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3536876414%22%7D" expand=1]

14. You still get the urge to run up and block the cable box (or even turn of the TV entirely) when someone doesn't want to watch the same thing as you.

15. You can't eat a real meal with them because they inhale their food as if they were a real life vacuum cleaner.

16. Getting the constant reminder that 14 years ago you pushed the other into the entertainment center and he had to go to the emergency room because he split is head open and somehow after 14 years of hearing about it you're supposed to still feel bad.

17. Taking pride in how nice and girly you smell now because from ages 3-12 you smelled like dirt and sweat from running around with the animals you call brothers.

18. Still experiencing that twisted kind of sibling telepathy when at awkward family events.

19. You still give each other a hard time for literally everything. Good grades, new sports, the people they call "friends"-- you name it.

20. Somehow, after all this time, everything still remains a competition.

Being the only girl may consist of way too many sporting events and not much alone time, but having brothers is one of the coolest things and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
