I knew this was real; I did NOT make it up!

Cheers That 'Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated' Wasn't A Fever Dream Of My Childhood And Netflix Finally Put Nostalgic Goodness On Their Dashboard

Unlike most students, I came back to campus a week early due to prior obligations. Responsibility cut my Texas trip short, but that's okay. Although, being at my dorm while everyone else remained away on break left me with little to do. Of course, there was the Big Monday basketball game (where we tragically lost), and I went to that. Past that, the activity list for this week seemed minimal.

One of my closest friends, Abby, only lives an hour from campus, and she definitely came to my rescue. Abby was my very first, new friend at Oklahoma State University, and we continue our friendship! She invited me to her house where we quickly gathered up some necessary sleepover snacks - Cheez-Itz, beef taquitos, Blue Bell ice cream, and of course, chocolate chip cookie dough! We scanned Netflix to find a must-see that night, but with her mum in the room, the options were limited. Jokingly, What's New, Scooby-Doo? played until her mum went to bed.

However, I asked Abby, "Do you remember that show Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated or was that just a fever dream I had?" I have not seen a single trace of this show since the last time I watched it back in the early 2010's so naturally I feared that it was simply a fever dream; something my mind entirely made up. The intellectual discussion about Scooby-Doo and its many versions began. After a hefty discussion plus a tube of raw cookie dough, we decided to switch shows when lo and behold, Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated appeared. The marathon launched.

This version of Scooby-Doo aired in 2012, but I vividly remembered it. A whole new style of animation. Fred only cares about traps. Velma's personality altered immensely. Scooby has a love interest. But, the best part? There was an online game where you got to walk around the city as Shaggy and Scooby, solving all the mysteries on the show. Did I find the game? Yes, I did.

There were other positives besides just the online game. For example, in this series there is an overarching storyline, and most of the episodes have some correlation to one another. Don't get me wrong, What's New, Scooby-Doo? will always be a banger, but this version probably seemed better as it launched during my major TV-watching days.

If you're wondering, I have almost solved the entire mystery of Crystal Cove, but I couldn't have done it without my crime-solving partner, Abby. We've decided that we collectively make up the classic gang as she has Velma's brains, I have Daphne's pop-culture knowledge, and together we make up for the weird combination of Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby. Pardon me, but I have a mystery to solve!

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
