Going out is one of the best parts of college. It doesn't matter the day of the week, time of year or the occasion, going out is a huge part of a lot of students' college experiences. Some nights are a bust, some are successful and some just end up with a s**t ton of junk food. Here is a typical night out in my world.

1. Getting Ready

Getting ready is actually one of my favorite parts of the night. My friends and I raid each other's closets and basically have a fashion show until each accessory is perfect. Music is jamming, we are perfecting our smokey eyes and doing each other's hair. It is quite a sight to see. After everyone has approved each other's looks for the night, we head downstairs to take some pictures.

2. Pictures

We all head downstairs to take some pictures before our big night out. We perfect out hair, poses and lighting before taking our "insta-worthy" pictures of the night. Turn your air drop on, send me the group photo and we need to retake that are all things you will definitely hear everyone saying. When everyone is content with their photos, the uber is called.

3. The Uber

"Kevin is two minutes away everyone!" Everyone files outside to get into our uber. We all pile in. We ask the uber driver to play us some tunes and everyone jams along. Most of the time, the uber driver will say we are a funny group of girls. Other times, the uber driver seems annoyed. Eventually, we finally arrive at our destination.

4. The Actual Party

We finally arrive at our destination, whether its Midtown, Downtown or a house party. We all walk in together and scope out the scene. We make a lap around the club/party to say hi to everyone we know. After a while, we are all doing our own things such as socializing with friends, talking to cute boys or hitting up the dance floor. Typically, we all lose each other at the club and get one million "Where are you..." texts. There is always the one friend that ends up talking to the boy she promised she would never speak to again. Then there is the friend who is crying over a boy, as well as the friend that just wants to go home and watch Netflix in bed.When everyone has had enough, you know what that means...food.

5. Food

It's the typical drunk food debate. Should we go to Pizza by the Slice, Relish, Pita Pit or Jimmy Johns? Especially in a college town, the options are endless. Of course, no one wants the same thing so we make a round trip to each stop. Once everyone is satisfied with their food, it's time to uber back.

6. Arrival Home

Now this my friends is the funniest part of the night when we talk about everything that just went down while snacking. You will hear things like, "Her ex-boyfriend did what?" or "I met the cutest boy tonight." After everyone has finally told all of their funny stories of the night, it's time for bed. Usually, someone goes a little too crazy and we have to throw them in the shower and put them to bed. Trust me, it is all being photographed so we can laugh at it the next day. The night is over and it is time to sleep. Now that, my friends, is a typical night out in my world.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

5187

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

431

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

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 endocrinologist 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.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4164

- 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.
