Where Do YOU Stand?
Start writing a post

The other day, I was scrolling through Facebook and stumbled upon a video asking "Is water really wet?" Curious to see what other people thought, I decided to take a look at the comments. To my surprise, there were thousands of people arguing their opinions and spitting out facts supporting their side of the argument. This made me think: how many questions and arguments are out there that can get people this heated. So, I decided to compile a list of these arguments and preach to the choir my thoughts on each one.

Cereal or Milk First?

Personally, I believe the cereal should be poured before the milk. This way, you can make sure you have enough cereal in the bowl to fill you up without overflowing once you pour the milk in. The other side of the argument is that pouring the milk in first keeps the cereal from becoming soggy; however, I believe this assertion is redundant, as the cereal and milk will be mixed anyway.

XBOX or Play Station?

I have never personally owned a Play Station, nor have I ever played one. I have owned every generation of XBOX, though, so I guess you could call me pretty loyal. I don't really have anything against Play Station, I just would prefer XBOX because that's what I grew up playing with.

Raisin' Cane's or Zaxby's?

Ok, this one hits a little close to home. I don't have a Raisin' Cane's where I'm from, so I don't get the courtesy of feasting on such a delicacy very often. I am simply stuck with disgusting Zaxby's chicken. I think Cane's is better because it's fresher and the sauce is better in my opinion. Zaxby's is also always too salty in my opinion.

Is a Hot Dog a Sandwich or Just a Hot Dog?

This is an oldie, but a goodie. I think a hot dog is a sandwich. The definition of a sandwich, I think, is meat (most of the time) and condiments between two pieces of bread, which is exactly what a hot dog is. I don't understand why people think a hot dog isn't a sandwich because I'm not quite sure what else it would be classified as. I also would feel sort of bad for hot dogs if they weren't sandwiches. They would just be thrown into a weird miscellaneous food group.

Does a Straw Have Two Holes or One?

Pants have three holes, socks have one hole, and straws have two holes. To make a straw, you have to make two cuts; therefore, there have to be two holes. If there weren't two holes you would just have an infinitely long, useless piece of hollow plastic.

These are my opinions on some of the most debated arguments I have seen online or heard from my friends. What are your thoughts and opinions?

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
