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.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
