    Getting ready to go out is a grueling process, especially for women. Women are expected to meet or exceed dozens of ridiculous, socially contrived beauty standards. We go through some messy shit just for you fools to complain that we take too long in the bathroom.

    2. "Sex with a Stranger"

    So, it happens. And rarely is it some glamorous rendezvous. Sometimes it's hard to have fun when you're preoccupied by not wanting to get murdered by the stranger you just invited into your home.

    3. "I'm Just a Girl In Love"

    Because sometimes you text the wrong person the wrong thing. Like when you mean to text your BFF that you found your crush's high school ex on Twitter, but you stupidly send him the screenshots instead. Or when you accidentally sext your grandma. Yikes.

    5. "Group Hang"
