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

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?"

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
