I Party Hard In College And These 8 Reasons Show You That You Should Too

I Party Hard In College And These 8 Reasons Show You That You Should Too

You only go to college once. (YOLO)

Coming into college I was so stoked to finally go to college parties as a ‘college girl’ (I mean, I was basically the sh*t now). BUT, as we all know, the partying in college does die down after the first year or so because you finally come to realize that you actually need to do work in college. BUT, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t at least experience college parties at some point.

I will admit I partied pretty hard my first year and a half of college, and I wouldn’t take it back for the world. Some people are so against it, and I do understand because there is always the risk of something bad happening (which you should always have a plan before hand to be safe if something does actually happen), getting a ticket, or drinking too much. If you take care of yourself, you can have a pretty awesome time.

I advocate anyone who is about to enter college to go out to at least one party at some point in their college career, and here are some reasons why:

1. You can take cute pictures for the gram

Keep them classy of course.

2. Sometimes after a long week of school and stress, it’s nice to take the edge off with a drink

Know your limits too otherwise things can turn south fast.

3. You meet SO many people

A great way to put yourself out there and start making friends.

4. Dancing

This is like a hardcore workout too.

5. You have an excuse to look hot

Who doesn’t love getting dolled up every once and a while.

6. After hitting up a party you go and get pizza

Drunk food is the best food.

7. When you go out with the girls (or boys) and just mess around the whole time

Screaming your favorite songs on the top of your lungs with your besties is something we all need to do.

8. The laughs

You see some pretty funny things when out, and they are 10X funnier with some alcohol mixed in with it.

Remember to ALWAYS be careful and make sure you stay out trouble when out and again, have a plan. But just enjoy yourself. We are only young once, and since this is the time where we don’t have that many serious responsibilities yet, might as well get the partying out now while out metabolisms are still high.

Party hard, but study harder.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
