11 Signs You're Home For Break In Pike County, Missouri

Welcome home.

11 Signs You're Home For Break In Pike County, Missouri
Macie Crane

You are now entering Pike County.

Good to have you back!

1. You hear all about everyone and what everyone has been doing while you were gone.

It's funny to hear when you're no longer involved in it. Well...

2. You hear the latest gossip on yourself that you missed while you were gone.

You find out so much!

3. You see those people out and about that you wish you didn't have to.

You know, like exes and the girls you didn't care too much for in high school.

4. You try to order pizza from Louisiana's Pizza Hut, but find out it shut down a month ago.

Then you have to drive to Bowling Green.

5. Your schedule is crammed because every second you aren't with family, you're with old friends.

You've all got to catch up over a good ole' road trip.

6. While you were gone, you could talk to ten guys and avoid the headache. But when you're home it's nearly impossible to keep up with all 10.

So, consider yourself lucky if you saw the person you've been keeping in touch with while they were away at college.

7. Road trips just aren't the same over winter break.

When the dust turns into a slush, the road trip is just not as fun.

8. All your family asks how your semester went, so you lie straight to their face.

"How was school?"

*Smiles on the outside, cries on the inside*

9. Your room may have been taken over by your sibling.

For instance, I brought all my stuff home just to find out that I had been kicked out of my own room by my little sister.

10. It really sinks in just how much everything has changed.

In the time that you were gone, so much as changed, not only in your life, but those who stayed back home. Everyone's growing up. Some are getting married. Some work full-time. You realize you can't really take a break from reality.

11. You can't use your fake ID at Next Door or Southside.

You aren't in your college town anymore. Everyone in Pike County knows exactly who you are, who your parents' are, how old you are, what street you live on, and your first dog's name.

Welcome home.

XO and best wishes,

Ashley Rose Corbin

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

It wasn't until I hit 23 years old that I started getting hangovers. It could've been from two glasses of wine or even a margarita at happy hour, the next day, consider me bed-bound until further notice.
