For every server who has kept their mouth shut one too many times.

25 Things Your Server Would Much Rather Say Than, 'Thank You, Come Again!'

Working in the food industry can be incredibly irritating, especially when you deal with rude customers. Ask any server you know, I am almost positive they will share some crazy story about the time they were either yelled at for a mistake they didn't make, or for food they didn't cook being too undercooked.

Servers are told to just plaster a fake smile on their face because "the customer is ALWAYS right", but here are a few things servers would rather say than "Thank You, come again!"

1. Did this woman really just holler at me from across the restaurant while I was talking to another table!?

2. Do you not see me carrying over 1,000 f*cking things in my hand... I can't grab you another soda right this very second, actually. 

3. Damn, how much dressing on the side do you really need...

4. Did you actually expect your steak to be cooked like a five-star meal...where do you think you are sir, Paris?

5. I don't make enough money to run back and grab you an EXTRA lemon for your water

6. I'm sorry your burger was undercooked, but I'm actually not that sorry  because I DIDN'T make it

7. If you really don't like our healthier options than maybe you should just eat at home

8. Need faster service? Head to the drive-through in McDonald's instead!

9. Want a free drink because you didn't like the one I just took time making for you? Tough sh*t

10. Can you please teach your child how to behave in a restaurant, how old is he now? Ten?

11. If you didn't want your child purchasing a game on our tablet why would you let him/her play with it then?

12.I COULD grab you extra sauce for your pasta, but do I WANT to... 

13. Wow, I really can't wait for you and your family to leave!

14. This old woman really did not just yell at me for giving her a small portion of fries...

15. I hope another server never has to deal with the pain and stress you just caused me

16. I need a fat glass of wine after dealing with your pain in the as*

17. How is it possible to have a problem with every little thing I've brought out?

18. Boy... you would be so much cuter if you actually left me a 20% tip

19. You really expect me to carry all 6 dishes out at the same exact time?

20. No really, I love all random sass, please continue!

21. Ah, less than 20% tip 

22. No eye contact when we speak? Its fine I'm totally just here for fun 

23. Should I be the first to tell this woman her child just chucked a chicken tender across the room or...

24. Attention 12-year-olds! I have beef with your parents who raised you to act like this in a restaurant

25. I genuinely hope you never step foot in this restaurant again

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

The Smile Project is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading happiness, founded by Elizabeth Buechele. It all started on a random day in the fall of her senior year.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
