Your Life Explained By A Persian Cat Room Guardian

This white fluffy guy relates to everyday life more than I'd like to admit.

I don't know if it's just me, but when I saw this small, fluffy, and clearly confused little guy, I felt a strong sense of kinship. Maybe it's just our similar physical characteristics, but I feel like he knows what he's doing as often as I do- never.

They are called Persian cat room guardians; small creatures that protect one’s home from negative spirits and energies...and also somehow explain every scenario I've encountered in college thus far.

Such as when…

You lose your phone in your shoe-box sized dorm room. And your sunglasses. And your wallet. And the hamster you bought last week.

Your friends ask you to set them up with a guy for the date party, but you don't even have a date...

You go to sleep at 3 p.m. with the intention of taking an hour long nap, but then wake up at 9:30.

Your teacher calls you out for doing activities other than taking notes on your laptop during lecture.

You have zero pairs of clean socks because you haven’t done laundry in two (or more) weeks. Pray, it doesn’t rain because it looks like you’re wearing rainbows.

Your mom asks what happened to all your money. (Food, Mom.)

You roll in five minutes late to class and forgot to bring a Scantron to your midterm.

And then the whole test is comprised of only trick questions.

You sleep all day and wake up still tired. When was the last time you were tested for mono? You should get that checked out.

Starbucks is out of Cold Brew coffee and bagels… Why are they trying to hurt you like this?

Apple wants to update your phone, but when it starts it says 4 and a half hours remaining...

You need to vote for president, but all the candidates are mentally unstable.

On-campus dining DOESN'T HAVE AVOCADO. This is worse torture than (illegal) waterboarding. Which, by the way, Trump vows to bring back "and much worse."

A new season of your favorite show becomes available on Netflix so you (obviously) watch it all in one day and have to wait another year for the next season.

If you're interested in pursuing this scenario, try "House of Cards" or "Bloodline."

You're at the library and forget a computer charger. Or one person is taking up a whole big table in the library during finals week. If you're reading this and happen to work in the library, I think you guys should get more tables.

Someone tells you the tapestry hung around your bed is not a fort. Seriously that is so rude. It totally is.

This little guy clearly has no idea what he's doing. I get stressed when I feel like I have don't know what I'm doing, but when I moved to college I realized nobody my age knows! At many times I have suspected the same of older adults. This little guy reminded me that it's okay just to not know at all, and he still looks cute meanwhile.

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.
