Being a girl is mostly great. However, there are some days when it’s just a little less than fun. Let’s be real. Being a girl literally sucks. And no, before you come to think that this is one of those feminist articles. I’m not here to yell at men because they don’t give me what I think I deserve. Because I literally nagged my boyfriend to do the dishes this morning and he did. So, anyway, it wasn’t because I was sick or anything but simply because I was lazy. So no, this article isn’t what you think it is.
Being a female is a pain. We’re expected to know basically everything. How many times have you had your mom walk into the room just to find something you’d been looking for the past 40 minutes?

Hell no, we just want to do nothing all day and watch Netflix.

But, Fridays can change everything – or not.
All it needs is one last push!
Then comes the weekend.
And the world becomes our oyster!
It brings out the naughty in us!
Connects us with nature.
All of this was just a satire. Being a girl is the best. And you should truly be jealous if you’re not.
