9. Your phone blowing up with hundreds of Scranton Alerts.

Followed by sirens going off every second.


10. Wellness.

Does nothing.


11. The weather goes from 100 to negative 20 in a matter of days.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F10%2F636117091750628516358290041_giphy-9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=111&h=5aed17b98de19c53c266aedd6fc44bc22c919adb46dd2bae85154e59fa8d5a5c&size=980x&c=4080560007 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F10%252F636117091750628516358290041_giphy-9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D111%26h%3D5aed17b98de19c53c266aedd6fc44bc22c919adb46dd2bae85154e59fa8d5a5c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4080560007%22%7D" expand=1]

12. Hitting the dinning hall during a meal rush.

Suddenly DeNaples looks like the next battle scene in Game Of Thrones.


13. Zoca charging extra for guac.

Like no. You are not Chipotle.


14. Getting hopelessly lost in LSC.

Yes, you do walk in to the second floor.

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.

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.
