11 Mocktails That Prove You Don't Need Alcohol To Be The Life Of The Party

National Sober Day doesn't have to be one day out of the year.

In college, alcohol is so rooted in the culture that it almost seems off-beat to spend a full day, or even a full week, 100% sober. The truth is, earlier this year, I struggled with some health issues. Between getting poked at with needles, changing my lifestyle just to get through the day and medications galore, I had to find peace with being what felt like the only college student who didn't drink.

It turns out, I never needed the alcohol to have a good time anyway. When I did go out with my friends, I offered to drive them home to make sure they got back safely. I always had a great time and actually saved a lot of money in the process.

Whether you're trying to cut some calories, remember what it was like to be sober every night, or you've just never been a vodka-cranberry kind of person anyway, these mocktails are sure to taste better than the overpriced drink you were going to get at the bar.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
