To The Girl Who Doesn't Party In College

They are rare, I know.

I know what you all are thinking, she is just writing the article to brag on herself or to show the world the kind of person she is. No, I am writing this article to the girl out there who feels as if she is alone.

Not being a part of the party season is not the most popular thing to do on a college campus. Most people spend their days thinking about what they will do at night. Life pretty much revolves around the next party. But for people like me, it isn't spent thinking about alcohol or the next party I'm going to attend. And that can get pretty lonely.

It is not like I sit and wallow in my sadness or ever feel like my friends leave me out because I don't drink. I have great friends that support every decision I make. But, some are not that lucky. Some girls don't have the support system like me and I am here to tell you to never compromise the person you want to be just because you don't fit in. If you don't want to party, don't give in just because your friends are pressuring you into. Not to sound cliche, but find new friends because they are not your real ones. Choosing to stay true to you will pay off in the end, and you won't regret it. I promise.

I don't know why you choose to not attend the party scene, but I would be hindering my calling if I didn't tell you why I don't. I know this guy, and his name is Jesus. He is my best friend and the person I talk to about everything. It is because of Him that I decided to not party, to set an example for the people around me. But, I am also not 21. So I don't think, by any means, that me having a margarita when I turn 21 is hurting my reputation or my testimony. I firmly believe that alcohol isn't a sin when consumed in the right ways. I also don't ever see myself as a partier, 21 or not. Partying is a way of conforming and a way of becoming what this fallen world deems acceptable.

So to the girl who fails to be the typical college partier, I commend you. I look up to you. I respect you. I want you to know how rare you are. You choosing to not party and rise above the college standard is something you will never regret. I don't believe that my college years are boring because of the way I decide to live my life. I wish that I could befriend each and every girl relating to this article. So, when those Friday nights get boring, remember that you are not alone. You are rising above the standard.

Do You Like Coffee But Get Heartburn? Try Cold Brew

As a sufferer of heartburn, I have found that drinking cold brew coffee does not give me heartburn like regular coffee or espresso does.


I am an avid coffee drinker and I drink at least four or five cups a day despite the recommended daily value of caffeine. In addition to being a coffee-lover, I also suffer from heartburn almost daily due to a hiatal hernia that I have. Typically, coffee causes some wicked heartburn for me, but I have found a remedy that doesn't involve giving up that cup of joe.


I recently decided to give cold brew coffee a try to see what all of the hubbub was about. After trying it, I found that my heartburn was not nearly as bad if I would have it all. After doing some research, I found that I was not imagining things, but that cold brew coffee is not nearly acidic as regular coffee or espresso. This is because of the process that is used to make cold brew.

Typically, when coffee is brewed, the heat of the water causes the coffee to turn more acidic and bitter. However, cold brew does not involve the heating of water in the slightest. Instead, the process involves steeping coffee grounds in cold water for 10 to 20 hours. By allowing the grounds to steep in this way, the coffee becomes smoother, richer, and less acidic, which is great for sensitive tummies.

If you have a sensitive stomach or strong acid reflux, give cold brew a try; especially if you are sick of watered down iced coffee. You will be pleasantly surprised by both the flavor and the effects this coffee has on the stomach.

Cold brew coffee also does not have to come from an overpriced shop like Starbucks. You can make your own cold brew at home if you have the patience or buy it pre-made from any grocery store. My personal favorite is Stok Cold Brew Coffee: Not Too Sweet. Coupled with some flavored cream, this coffee will have both your mind and stomach singing happy tunes for the day.
