Drunk Conversations

Do the conversations we have when drunk even count?

Drunk Conversations

Its safe to say that nothing good comes from drunk conversation. Sure it might end in making new friends and possibly the spontaneous hookup, but at what cost? Pouring your soul out to the guy you've never met before? Puking your guts out in an already overcrowded bathroom? Or my personal favorite, waking up in a completely different setting than the one you remember. So, do drunk conversations really count? ...

If we break it down, drunk conversations are 50% alcohol and 50% all the shit you wish you can say on a daily basis, but society won't accept. In actuality, I suppose we learn more about a person when they are drunk. We are free from judgment and censorship of our own words; quiet a liberating feeling. For instance, the guy I've had a crush on all year could approach me at a party, booze in hand, and I'd confess my deepest darkest secrets to him without question. Yet, if I saw him in any other setting; in line at the cafeteria, getting some work done at the library between classes, it would be a CODE RED. There's a level of security and genuine trust that is understood between two intoxicated people that are hard to find on a daily basis.

Not suggesting you should start showing up to your classes "lost in the sauce," but it made me think why brazen conversations have become scarier than the thought of having monsters under your bed. The only reason I could come up with is that the overall anxiety of the situation is subsided. Nine out of ten times I cower from the conversation is because I am overthinking the possible encounter. I spend so much time in my own head analyzing what could go wrong, what could go right, am I in the right outfit, did he walk in with that girl he is standing next to, OMG he's dating her... zero to one hundred, real quick.

If you are able to relate, don't loose hope. Instead, challenge yourself daily to break out of your comfort zone. The basis of drunk conversation is confidence. Being confident in yourself to strike a conversation with someone you've never met before. Being confident in yourself and your ability to engage others in the things you have to say. Who cares that you had a drink and can't stop talking about your cat that ran away in the 3rd grade! It is important to you and we tend to gravitate more towards people with genuine vibes. So you tell your depressing cat story with pride! And remember, you don't have to be drunk to have a drunk conversation

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
