5 Stages Of A Hangover
Stay At Home Mum

We've all been there, when we wake up and realize that all we've done is made mistakes last night. What was once fun has now turned into the worst day of your life. And it only takes a few moments to come to the realization:

And no matter where you are, what you drank, or how much you drank we all experience the same five stages. None of them are pretty.

1. Waking up.

Whether it's to an alarm or naturally, waking up is the hardest one on the list. This is when the hangover really hits you, like a surprise birthday party that you never wanted. At first you think you're golden but then you realize that your entire day is going to be a struggle.

2. Fatigue.

It feels like you just got done with the hardest workout routine, or like you've been awake for four days straight. Just moving to the edge of the bed feels like climbing Mount Everest. Writing your name on the attendance sheet should earn you a gold medal. And your body will feel that way all day.

3. Headache.

The slightest noise, smallest bit of light, or that one kid in class who yells instead of talking at a normal level. All you want to do is cover your ears, take some advil, and pray that the world will be quiet and peaceful for you that day. Of course, it won't be.

4. Nausea.

Someone might mention a greasy cheeseburger, their favorite alcoholic beverage, or you might have to go to a microbiology course where your teacher just wants to talk about all these disgusting diseases that make your stomach churn even more. And there's no way to make the nausea go away. It's here to stay.

5. Death.

Yep, it's all over. All of these hit you so hard and so fast that all you can do is lay down and die. It might be the end of the day, it might be the middle. Either way, it's game over.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
