I didn't start drinking until I came to college and turned 21. And if you're anything like me, you probably had no idea what to order or what to drink. I basically relied on trial and error on what drinks I liked or didn't like. Through my trials and the hundreds of dollars spent and drinks wasted, I discovered the safe drinks. They're either really good and you can't taste the alcohol, or they're real cheap and bearable.

1. Vodka Cranberry

A classic drink. The simplest to make and the cheapest drink to order or buy and make yourself. All it takes is Vodka and Cranberry juice.

2. Dirty Shirley

It's like Shirley Temple grew up and started having fun. All it is is Sprite, grenadine and tequila. You can also use vodka instead of tequila.

3. Vodka Sprite

Super Simple. Vodka and sprite.

4. Rum and Coke

Usually a simple drink for guys, but hey, girls drink it too.

5. Long Island Iced Tea

I made this mistake when I first ordered this drink thinking it actually had tea in it… it doesn't. It's a cocktail of all the known different types of liquor: Tequila, Vodka, Rum, Gin and Triple Sec. A splash of coke is added to give that iced tea color.

6. Moscow Mule

Ginger Beer, Vodka and Lime Juice. Served in a copper mug.

7. Gin and Tonic

Another Classic, a gentleman's classic. Add a lime for extra flavor

8. Beer (Budlight, Budweiser, Natty Light etc.)

You can't go wrong with beer. It's everywhere, it's cheap and it gets the job done.

9. Tequila Sunrise

Tequila, Orange juice and Grenadine.

10. Lemon Drop

Another drink with vodka, this time all you need to add is lemonade. Usually Taken as a shot.

When God Gives A Girl A Brother

He gives her a best friend.

My brother is only 18 months younger than I am, but he's also at least a foot taller than me. Growing up with someone so close to my age has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. Yes, there was a time when I thought every single little thing he did was annoying and his feelings towards me were mutual. Yes, we still get into arguments and disagreements. But for the most part, we enjoy each others company. When God gives a girl a brother, He gives her...

1. A listener

I always have someone to talk to. No matter what, when, or where. Some of my favorite moments are spent chatting my brother's ears off while he absent-mindedly nods and continues to play x-box. Sometimes he just listens and doesn't say anything. Sometimes he gives me long replies. He always knows just how to react to what I am saying to him, which is why I tell him almost everything.

2. A protector

When I think about the man that my brother has become, it seriously brings tears to my eyes. He's so big!! How did this happen? I can remember when I was little and could boss him around and he would actually do whatever I said. Now I'm scared that if he hugs me too hard, I might break in half. My brother cares about me, and lets me know it. I'm so thankful to know that he is there for me no matter what and would do anything to keep me from harm.

3. A dance partner

Another favorite memory is dancing to Juju on that beat in the kitchen while mom is cooking dinner (or dancing with us). Or any other time any other song is on... in any other place... LOL. My brother and I are different in a lot of ways, but we both have no problem busting a move together.

4. A Sonic date

"Hey, wanna go get a sonic drink?" "Yeah, if you're buying!" This is a typical conversation for us, and he actually really does usually buy my food! (With mom's credit card sometimes, does that still count?)

5. An example

Being the older sister, I sometimes feel like I have let my brother down in a lot of ways in that he is probably an example to me more than I am to him. He is incredibly smart, talented, and hard working. Kids FLOCK to this guy, and he has the most creative mind ever. Seriously, I'm so nervous that my future kids are going to like their funny uncle more than me. He's way cooler than I am, and I want to be just like him when I grow up.

6. Comic relief

If you've never heard a "Lane Prevett story," pull up a chair. I will be glad to make you cry from laughing so hard. There's no way you can spend time with him and not laugh. And that, to me, is the best kind of person to be.

7. A best friend

My brother is a lot of things, but my favorite thing about him is that he is my best friend. Yes, we aggravate each other. Sometimes he plays his music too loud, and sometimes I take up all the internet so that he can't play video games. But I know that he would do anything for me, and he knows the same goes for him.

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.

I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
