6 Things You Learn When You're A Girl Who Drinks With The Boys

PSA: Grandmas, please don’t read this one!


When you are a girl drinking with your guy friends, it's inevitable you will learn a thing or two.

1. How to drink

Two mixed drinks and a couple of shots spaced throughout the entire night probably used to be plenty. A few weekends drinking with the boys though and you quickly learn how to properly spend your 21st year of life.

Before you know it, you are starting out the night with two long island pitchers (yes pitchers) and a round of shots from Brothers. A fishbowl (you heard me, a freaking fishbowl) and ANOTHER round of shots from The Pioneer and well, to be honest, you don't really know what you drank from 11 p.m. to bar close because the 10 o'clock hour did you in.

Now when they text you "Bars?" you spend three hours minimum mentally preparing yourself for the damage about to be done.

2. NEVER bet one of them that you can out drink them

Remember THEY taught YOU how to drink so you never win this one. The only outcome is you puking all over the bathroom floor or worse, the table at the burrito place. Maybe even both.

3. They will always have your back

Even the one who is more shots deep than he knows he can handle will make sure you get home alive. They are willing to fight that creep on the dancefloor that grabbed you.

They almost always text you "wya?" when you've wandered off to the bathroom or the burrito place. They will even pay the $5 fee to cancel the $7 Uber because you and that Uber driver have a history.

4. You don't have to talk about your feelings

On the rare occasion that you are the one texting them "Bars?", all you have to say is that you're not great and that's that. They will spend the night making you laugh, cheering you on while you down more shots than normal, and put an extra solid effort into being your wingmen. Never once asking what's wrong or prying you to talk about your feelings.

5. No "random broad" will ever be good enough for them

You will not like any of the girls they bring home. They won't like your choice of men either. Fair enough.

6. They truly are the best

It's like having a bunch of brothers. They will never not pick on you, but they'd kill anyone else that does. They will make you laugh and annoy you all in the same sentence.

Even when you just want to throat punch them, you simply can't help but love them. And they will never admit it, but they love you too sis.

So, boys "Bars?"

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
