26 Reasons Why Being a Girl Sucks

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?”

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
