7 Ways To Make Plane Travel Easier

These seven steps will be sure to make your next trip to the airport more comfortable and more affordable.


Do you live within driving distance of your college? If so, stop reading, because this article is not for you. Actually, scratch that, keep reading and share. In fact, create another Facebook profile, friend me, and then share it again … but I digress.

Well anyway, I have to fly home from college and for the longest time it was a pain. But I recently figured out the best way to make flight travel both comfortable, and more importantly affordable.

Step 1. Pay for a limousine.

Nothing is more affordable and more luxurious than a stretch limousine. With prices as cheap as a few hundred dollars an hour, it’s hard to say no to such great rates.

Step 2. Avoid the costly prices of suitcases, and simply wear all of your clothes to the airport.

If you layer together all your shirts and jackets, you will be sure to stay warm, and you won’t have to wait to pick up your luggage.

Step 3. If you are late for your plane, there is one surefire way to get to the front of an obnoxious security line.

Start crying loudly and animatedly, and people will do whatever it take to get far away from you. Once they get out of the way, you can be next to the security desk.

Step 4. Fill your pockets with as much metal as possible.

The TSA have been spreading a rumor that their metal detectors detect all metal, but that is a sorrowful lie. The truth is that if you have enough metal with you, the metal detectors overload, and you can walk right through.

Step 5. Nothing is more stressful than travel.

Luckily, recent studies show that exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Use the airport hallways as track for some jogging, and absolutely remember to bring your dumbbells for some quick lifting while you wait for your plane to arrive.

Step 6. When it is time to present your ticket, remember that there are other options besides your phone and a print out.

This is the perfect opportunity to practice your etching. Etch out the bar code of your ticket, and watch as the airport employee’s face lights up with astonishment.

Step 7. Finally, remember that you and all of your fellow travelers on the plane are not strangers, but members of the same team.

Therefore, try to encourage some team building exercises, like karaoke or Trivia. Plane travelers love this sort of thing, and they will be grateful for your leadership.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
