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:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F23%2F636234823812974859-667559827_tumblr_nk6izyrcHJ1s9362xo1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=793&h=095bd5332871b96c3412ca6b4fc72bf26407ca34063440d2f03f3672caacf8c8&size=980x&c=101028143 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F23%252F636234823812974859-667559827_tumblr_nk6izyrcHJ1s9362xo1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D793%26h%3D095bd5332871b96c3412ca6b4fc72bf26407ca34063440d2f03f3672caacf8c8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D101028143%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F23%2F636234822644455466-443581000_2n5YPQF.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=276&h=2eb520c5b768fd4bbe6501f66207b665cfbdc1bfc9a7c4821dac96cf9f1ca6f1&size=980x&c=638565337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F23%252F636234822644455466-443581000_2n5YPQF.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D276%26h%3D2eb520c5b768fd4bbe6501f66207b665cfbdc1bfc9a7c4821dac96cf9f1ca6f1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D638565337%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F23%2F636234822190978496-1956461129_hungover.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=498&h=cbda4bdc09128dd0edf6a01a0f91fa5cf032fc9b04c6720703cfbfb8a276bd0e&size=980x&c=2724517702 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F23%252F636234822190978496-1956461129_hungover.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D498%26h%3Dcbda4bdc09128dd0edf6a01a0f91fa5cf032fc9b04c6720703cfbfb8a276bd0e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2724517702%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F23%2F636234821296663078-1481866238_Hungover-reply-gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=441&h=6679c860a9c9dd38a6d7f48d913853c5c5017ac6b40c73107dcb96ef2966ed61&size=980x&c=3269286936 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F23%252F636234821296663078-1481866238_Hungover-reply-gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D441%26h%3D6679c860a9c9dd38a6d7f48d913853c5c5017ac6b40c73107dcb96ef2966ed61%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3269286936%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F23%2F636234833391716207-464041489_Hitn0ze.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=96&h=636f67546769d2f848bd7bb2a6197695dcccd9909567059824b936ece5b6ee96&size=980x&c=3266313876 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F23%252F636234833391716207-464041489_Hitn0ze.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D96%26h%3D636f67546769d2f848bd7bb2a6197695dcccd9909567059824b936ece5b6ee96%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3266313876%22%7D" expand=1]

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.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
