Review: Applebee's Bahama Mama

It's the season for returning back to school and when returning back, the risks of drinking are once again more prevalent. Time and time again you'll hear the phrase "know your limits." Drinking can be fun when being responsible, but can also lead to many problems. Each drink you have lends itself to being buzzed and then drunk. But how do you know what your limit is? I did a fun experiment to see what it feels like to drink some popular drinks.

The first step was to bring someone who I knew I could trust in being my designated driver. None other than my boyfriend was the one who accompanied me to Applebee's to test out this experiment. My goal for this little fun experiment was not to get drunk, but to show people how alcohol can affect someone.

Drink 1: Large Bahama Mama

I started with a large Bahama Mama. They prove to be quite popular drinks, since Applebee's runs sales on them at night for half price. The photo shown was the actual drink. I finished it rather quickly because it was made right with not an excessive amount of alcohol or sweetener. The drink is a little bit bigger than the regular size. After one drink, I recognized that I was a little bit buzzed, but not to the point where I needed to be cut off from ordering another.

Drink 2: Regular Bahama Mama

I got another Bahama Mama, but this time, regular size. Again, I drank it rather quickly because they are one of my favorite drinks. After drink two, my boyfriend noted that I was laughing a bit more and smiling a lot. And as a side note, most times when at a college party, there is not food like when at a restaurant, so the food did help.

Unfortunately, before I could order another drink, our waiter gave us the check and I felt too bad to ask for another Bahama Mama. So after only two drinks, I was definitely buzzed but not drunk. Knowing your limits can save you an unfortunate situation from happening and feeling sick later on. Drinking can be fun, but it is good to "KNOW YOUR LIMITS!"

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
