Here are some life hacks everyone can benefit by knowing. I know I have.

Don’t walk down the steps with your hands in your pockets.

I never thought anything of it until I tried walking down steps with my hands in my pockets.

When crying out for help, cry help in a specific way. 

Giphy

Instead of just yelling “help” yell “hey, you in the green shirt, HELP”

If you’re caught in a riptide, swim parallel to the shore, not fighting the riptide

A great hack for someone like me who can’t swim.

Keep your phone face down to save battery

Tried this and to my surprise, THIS WORKED.

Tampons can be used as water filtration.

Great way to save your life down the road.

If you’re in a trunk, kick out the tail lights to get the attention of other cars

With kidnapping at an all time high, this will SAVE YOU.

If you have food, but no water, resist the urge to eat. It’ll make you even thirstier.

Hold out, it’ll be worth it.

If you’re ever in a fire, stay low to the ground. You'll have plenty of air down there.

Giphy

Heat and smoke rise. Always remember that.

If a gun is pointed at you, look them in the eyes.

They are less likely to fire at you.

Look both ways when crossing the road, even if a walk sign is saying you can go. 

Giphy

You can never be too careful with drivers. So many people run the red.

Always keep money in the sole of your shoes. 

Giphy

You'll never know when a little extra cash can help.

If you’re trapped on thin ice, lay down on your  stomach and wiggle/crawl to the shore from the direction you came. 

Giphy

Ice is a scary thing, stay smart.

If you’re stabbed or impaled, don’t pull it out. 

Giphy

It keeps your blood from gushing out everywhere.

If you get lost in the desert, breathe through your nose - it’ll make you less dehydrated

Don't panic, just breathe. In through the nose, out through the mouth.

Be observant of your exits.

In case of emergency, know all exists to safely get out.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
