The lemons life hands you can definitely be turned into tasty lemonade.

The Man Who Drunkenly Booked a Flight

If you think getting a tattoo when you're drunk is crazy, you should know about the man who drunkenly bought a plane ticket to another country. A Scottish man by the name of Jamie Ather, had booked a flight to Rio after an apparently awesome night of clubbing. It is said that he had no dream of going to South America at all, and he had no recollection of even booking this vacation at all. He had checked his email a couple days later, and to his surprise, there was an email that said his flight was confirmed.

After a while of debating whether he should waste the mere $800, or take his mistake and make something out of it, he decided to go anyway. He had planned an itinerary for his trip. In it, included Copacabana Beach, Iguazu Falls (Brazil and Argentina Border), the Inca Trail (Machu Picchu, Peru), and a sloth sanctuary in Bahia. This drunken mistake had turned out to be an awesome vacation for him. He had no regrets.

The fact that he was blackout drunk when he booked it is hilarious, but the fact that he decided to actually go is amazing. Who wouldn’t want to visit a sloth sanctuary, let alone Rio? It kind of makes me want to plan a trip (sober, I’m 18). I need a foreign, tropical vacation! Seriously though, my last vacation was to Florida (Universal Studios).

Let’s talk about sloths! Have you heard the noise they make? So cute! Their faces are adorable. They are truly a lot of people’s spirit animal. Their name is cute. Last but not least, Sid.

When life hands you a trip to Rio, take it full on! Make that "lemonade" worth it.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college.

It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
