'Dranksgiving': The Drinking Game That Will Help You Survive The Holidays

Take a shot every time a relative makes you uncomfortable.

'Dranksgiving': The Drinking Game That Will Help You Survive The Holidays
Madison McNulty

Do family gatherings frighten you? Do your family members make you question every choice you've ever made? Do you enjoy alcohol? If so, there's a solution for you on how to survive the ~holidays~. Spoiler alert: it's alcohol. But not your usual drinking-away-your-sorrows type of drinking. Oh, no, it's drinking in a game form. This is better because, one: it's less depressing, and two: drinking every time a relative asks you an over-personal question will prevent you from having to answer.

Here's how to play:

1. Take a sip every time someone undermines your major


Family member: "'re major??"

2. Finish your drink every time there's a debate over politics


I'll agree with whatever you're saying if you pass the damn mash potatoes.

3. Take a sip every time a relative insist on kissing your cheek


So. much. lipstick. on. my. cheek.

4. Take a sip every time someone pats their stomach and says they're "stuffed"


Wow...I would've never guessed you were full after eating 12 casseroles.

5. Take a sip every time someone asks "How are you?" in a high voice


*in a high voice* "I'm good. How are you?!"

6. Finish your drink every time someone "discreetly" brags about themselves


Or just keep drinking until they finally stop.

7. Take a sip every time someone talks over you


If I actually took a sip every time someone talked over me at family gatherings, I would evolve into an actual bottle of wine.

8. Take a shot every time someone asks how you're doing in school


Well, Aunt Jen, I can no longer feel any emotion and I may be failing....but this green bean casserole is amazing.

9. Take a sip anytime there's an awkward pause


Rule clarification: the sip has to last as long as the pause does.

10. Take a sip every time someone insists on taking a picture


Rule clarification: Take baby sips because this will probably happen a lot.

11. Take a shot every time someone asks when you're graduating


I feel attacked by this question.

12. Take a sip every time someone asks about what you plan on doing after graduation


I feel VERY attacked by this question.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
