26 Reasons Why Being a Girl Sucks

Most of the time, being a girl is so great. But there are some times where it is just a little less than fun.

Here are a few reasons why being a girl sucks sometimes:  

1. Losing all your bobby pins. How does this even happen?

2. The struggle of creating a cute “messy bun.” This is actually impossible for some girls. I so envy any girl who can just throw her hair up in five seconds and look attractive.

3. Shaving.

4. Being asked if you are tired or sick if you skip wearing makeup for a day.

5. Emotions... So. Many. Emotions.

6. The endless amount of hair on the floors or anywhere else you go. It seems like a miracle that you’re not bald, judging by the amount of hair you find on the floor.

7. Wearing eye makeup and not being able to rub your eyes.

8. Periods.

9. There are some occasions where you just have to wear high heels. Heels suck.

10. Painting your nails (which is a struggle in itself) and then not being able to use your hands for the next two hours.

11. The ridiculous amount of money you have to pay for bras and underwear. Seriously? It’s literally underwear, why does it have to be so expensive?

12. It takes girls twice as long to shower as guys. Quick two-minute shower, including washing your hair? Impossible if you are a girl.

13. And don’t forget the time it takes afterward to blow dry it and/or style it.

14. Scrubbing your eyes to get off your waterproof mascara.

15. But also scrubbing your face if you cried while wearing regular mascara. Sometimes you just can’t win with mascara.

16. Going to the store to buy tampons, forgetting and getting in a checkout line where of course the cashier is a young guy.

17. Running up or down stairs without a sports bra on.

18. Getting ready for formals, etc. can take hours for girls. For guys, it takes roughly ten minutes (so unfair).

19. Finding a spot on your leg that you missed shaving.

20. Or wearing shorts when you forgot that you haven’t shaved in weeks (Waco weather problems…).

21. Being unable to kill spiders, roaches, etc.

22. Overthinking everything. Literally everything.

23. Being expected to know how to cook or bake. Or do anything domestic. Sorry, boys, I’m probably more useless in the kitchen than you are. 

24. Eyebrow waxing. Or any waxing. 

25. You can’t pee just anywhere, like a tree or a fence. 

26. The text every girl has sent at some point: “Are you dressing cute or homeless?”

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
