22 Reasons Beer Is Better Than Wine

Ireland is blessed with some of the best beers in Europe, and I'm blessed to be drinking them all one pint at a time. With an Irish father and an Italian mother, alcohol is always a yes! Don't get me wrong -- I love to have a nice bottle of wine every now and then, but if you ask me what I want to drink, my answer 10 out of 10 times will be beer!

In case you need some reassurance of why beer will always be better than wine, here are 22 reasons.

1. It's delicious.

2. No one craves a glass of wine on a hot summer day.

3. Beer goes perfectly with hot dogs.

4. Budweiser beer commercials that move you to tears -- enough said.

5. Beer comes in all shape and sizes: kegs, pints, bottles. We love them all.

6. All drinking games include beer -- it's pretty much a law.

7. Seriously, no one wants to funnel some Moscato.

8. There is an art to pouring the perfect pint, just ask Guinness.

9. Oktoberfest.

10. Keg stands are better thsan slap the bag.

11. Beer hangovers are rare while wine hangovers ruin your whole day.

12. Beer is, 99 percent of the time, cheaper than wine.

13. Don't have a bottle opener?

It's all good -- use a lighter or edge of a table. Beer can be opened with anything and everything -- including another beer.

14. You never see TV characters hang out at their local winery.

Pubs are where it's at.

15. IPAs, lagers, porters, strong ales, stouts.

One of each, please and thank you.

16. Beer and bonfires.

17. All the country songs are about beer for a reason.

18. Did I mention how delicious it is?

19. Ben and Jerry's partnered with New Belgium Beer and made Ice Cream and Beer.

Where's your wine flavor boys?

20. Beer Gardens -- the ultimate drinking hangout.

21. Beer names are original and hilarious.

Galway Hooker, Cute Hoor, Hoptimus Prime, Pure Hoppiness. Take that Cabernet and Merlot.

22. Beyoncé drinks beer.

Now, grab yourself a pint and marvel at all its glory. Sláinte!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
