Perhaps you’ve dreamed about getting a face tattoo like Mike Tyson or perhaps you’ve dreamed about having a tiger ride in the back of your car? If you have, then what better way to have your dreams come true, than to take a short trip to the magical world of Las Vegas; a world so insane you might find yourself waking up sunburned on a rooftop.

If you are 21 and have been dying to go, here are 10 dos and don’ts of Las Vegas you should read about before going.

1. Do: The crew

Everyone has a partner in crime for a reason: to tear down Vegas. People need to be sure they go with the right group of people who can handle each other when they are in their drunkest state and when they are questioning their life choices the following day.

2. Don’t: The pregame is not the party

While the pregame may be loads of fun, don’t get trapped drinking and hanging out in your hotel room too long or you will miss the big-name DJ’s perform at your club of choice.

3. Do: Have Gatorade or Coconut Water Handy

Be nice to your body. Remember to have some sort of beverage to waken your soul when you arise the next morning in a hung-over stoop.

4. Don’t: Minesweeping is not a game

Everyone likes free alcohol, but feel free to decline the sketchy offers. When guys or girls offer to buy you a drink, follow them to the bar and when you have your drink, don’t let it out of your sight. Trust is but a myth in Vegas.

5. Do: Remember, what happens in Vegas, goes straight to snap story

The old saying, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” does not ring true to many. With the use of social media these days and people being too intoxicated to remember everything, pictures and rumors somehow seep their way across state lines.

6. Don’t: Those heels are never worth it

Girls, the amount of walking causes gruesome blisters. Pain is beauty, but when you’re dancing at a club, the beauty gets real ugly, real quick.

7. Do: Girl Power

The cover charges for guys are absolutely ridiculous. Vegas is very sexist when it comes to who they let into their clubs and for what cost. Women can often times get into clubs for free when guys will empty their wallets faster than the line goes.

8. Don’t: Blacking out could cost you

Literally. Some clubs will throw money in the air like confetti and if you have no idea what’s going on or where you are, you might miss out on a few bucks.

9. Do: Promoters are everything

Find yourself a solid promoter. And a real one. Make sure you find someone who can get you a good deal; many can actually get you free entry and even V.I.P. But be wary, your name might not make the list if your give your information to a poser.

10. Don’t: Do NOT get married

Do not pull a Rachel and Ross. No one needs the cheap plastic ring on the finger that breaks a week later. This chaos just calls for instant regrets and unnecessary paper work.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
