Life can be hectic and you try your best to keep up with it all. Whether it is school, work, or friends, you've got your plate full with responsibilities. You're always working hard to earn money, and never stopping until you achieve your dreams. Wouldn't it be helpful if there was some way to make it easier? Well, the internet is looking out for you, my friend! Here's 13 Life Hacks for you because you deserve it.

1) Laundry Detergent too Expensive? Make your own at home!

Whether you want a cheaper alternative or you want to know the ingredients in your detergent, I got you covered.

Combine:

1 Cup of Washing Soda

1 Cup of Borax

1/2 - 1 Cup of Grated Bar Soap

Use about 1/4 cup per load

2) Write a "Thank You" note after an interview!

It is common for interviewees to send a "Thank You" note after an interview. Not only does it show that you are grateful in a professional manner, it helps you stand out from the crowd! Here is a basic outline you can use:

Dear ______:

Thank you for the opportunity to sit down with you to discuss (Insert Job Position). I think I will be a great fit at (Company Name), especially given my experience in ______. (optional reference to something you talked about in the interview) I look forward to hearing from you (if you feel like you nailed it: and working together in the future).

Sincerely,

(Your Name)

3) Need help with a math problem? Go to WolframAlpha

This free tool is full of help for many subjects including Engineering, Chemistry, and Elementary Math.

4) Need to write a research paper?  Use Google Scholar!

Instead of using Google.com, research your topic on Google Scholar for more relevant information.

5) It's a good idea to always be prepared on the road.

Items to keep in your car:

Change of Clothes

Duct Tape

Carpet Replacements (For tire traction if you ever get stuck)

Fire Extinguisher

First Aid/Emergency Kit

Money

Blankets and Hand Warmers

Raincoat/Umbrella

Brush/comb

6) Want to donate to charity but can't afford it? Check out FreeRice!

Freerice.com donates rice to the United Nations World Food Program every time you answer a question correctly on their website. You can adjust the category so you can study for an upcoming test, or just use this free resource as a way to stay sharp.

7) When buying gifts, you are buying for them, not yourself.

You like it so everyone must, right? Wrong. No matter how much you love that video game or perfume, it may not be their style, so stay focused and don't just buy it because you would want it.

8) Flying somewhere?

Buy your plane tickets in the middle of the week to save money. Tickets become more expensive on the weekend so the company makes more money on impulse vacation buys.

9) Don't know what to make for supper?

Don't let your fridge fool you into thinking you can't make anything! Enter what food you have into MyFridgeFood.com and BOOM, recipes you can make from your fridge!

10) Got a cough?

Try using pineapple juice instead of cough syrup! Pineapples are a natural alternative and they contain Bromelain, which can fight infections and eradicate bacteria.

11) Stuck zipper?

Try rubbing crayon on both sides of the zipper to loosen it up. It's also best if the crayon is the same color as the zipper!

12) Shrunk your favorite sweater?

You can fix this mistake easily by soaking the sweater in warm water and hair conditioner for a few minutes.

13) Having trouble falling asleep?

Blinking your eyes quickly for a minute can tire them and make it easier to fall asleep.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
