If Every College Stereotype Was An Alcoholic Beverage

Everyone has their taste in people, just as everyone has their taste in alcohol.

1051

The definition of college is this: 10-page papers, brutal exams, and binge drinking on the weekends. While you spend your time there, you do end up following some sort of stereotype, whether you like it or not.


1. Frat Brothers/Sorority Sisters: Natty Light or Jungle Juice

"Who do you know here?" These are your Vineyard Vines, Sperry-clad party boys and sweet girls. They want to be messed up, binge drink, and want their frat house guests to partake in the same. Natty Light is bland and easy to find, like most frat guys. (Not all of them are this way. There are a few decent ones, but most follow the stereotype.) They've got money to throw and Natty is cheaper than most, so they can buy a lot of it. Jungle juice is the opposing gender–the female army. Most sorority girls are nice and inclusive, like the jungle juice mixture itself.

2. Gym Rats/Student Athletes: Four Loko

"Square up, bro. How much do you lift?" These are the people whose dedication to health and sports are insane, just like Four Loko. Anyone who drinks Four Loko has a death wish. Sometimes, athletes go far beyond the normal workout regimen to achieve peak athleticism. Those athletes are the equivalent of people who shotgun Four Lokos, which is a whole different level of crazy.

3. Hipsters: Blue Moon or an IPA

"But I liked the Lumineers before they were even cool." This alcohol choice shouldn't be shocking, even to the hipsters. Any drink that is really hoppy will attract hipsters. These are the "cool" drinks that are aesthetically pleasing in design, much like a hipster's wardrobe. No one can disagree that their general style isn't cool looking, it's just the obnoxious few that ruin hipsters for everyone. But these people are an acquired taste, much like IPAs or beer in general.

4. Club-goers: Trash Can

"Hey, wanna dance?" We all know the club regulars. These are the people whose tolerance is through the roof. They go clubbing every night, even with a life-altering exam the following day at 8 A.M. No matter the theme night, they're there and they're down for anything. Trash cans are drinks that get you messed up quickly and are as reckless and careless as the club-goers themselves. They not only down these like apple juice, but they'd probably bathe in those cheap drinks to prepare for the next day of partying and creepily walking up behind people instead of asking them to dance.

5. Student Government: Wine 

"Fight for your right!" For those who are sophisticated and have their shit together, wine is the perfect drink. They fight to better the school and to make it better for the students who attend. They're cool, calm, and collected–like most wine. Plus, wine just makes you feel cool when you drink it.

6. Country folk: Bud Light or Moonshine 

"Boi, howdy." This is also pretty unsurprising when one thinks of the country music-loving, custom truck folk. You barely see them, especially when they're wearing camo. You'll never see them coming, much like moonshine's effect. You don't think that moonshine will creep on you that quickly, but it does. There's nothing wrong with this group of people, except for the fact that they like Bud Light.

7. Student employees: Burnett's 

"No, the floatie belt doesn't go with the kickboards." As a student employee, all I need after a long shift is a strong drink. While Burnett's is the Natty Light of vodkas, it gets the job done. Student employees do their jobs and do them well. They have to start paying for college somehow, so their jobs matter. Also, Bernie is a great mixer and helps everyone get along. It rewards those who work hard so that the rest of the students don't have to.

8. Grad students: Whiskey

Older and wiser–much like the maturity of whiskey–they've been through enough college and just want to be ahead of their competition in the real world. Sometimes, the pressures of extra schooling lead them to harder liquor. Who can blame them? They're killing the game and will have a higher-paying job right out of school than we undergrads will. Just know that grad students, no matter their school, are going through a lot and whiskey tends to be the answer.

While not everyone follows their stereotypes, each alcohol fits them perfectly. No one can prove me wrong. No matter how bad these cliques seem, you always end up in one. You might not realize it right away, but you will soon. I just hope it isn't during a drunk revelation because then that turns to alcoholism.

Good luck figuring yourself out!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.
