10 Times Drinking Water Was Cooler Than Alcohol

There are only benefits to drinking water. And there are so many cons to drinking alcohol. So why would you choose the cons?

1. You stay hydrated. 

Who likes the feeling of almost passing out because they didn't drink any water all day? No one.

2. It's acceptable at any point in the day. 

Whether it is 8 a.m.,12 p.m., 8 p.m., or 12 a.m., water is cool.

But if it's 8 a.m. and you're taking shots, you might want to talk to someone.

Day drinking is too common in this day and age and it is one step closer to alcoholism.

3. It's legal at any age. 

Drinking alcohol under the age of 21 is a big no-no, but drinking water under the age of 21 is perfectly acceptable. If anything, it is encouraged. You will never get arrested for drinking a nice cold glass of water.

4. You can infuse it 

Water has never looked cooler. Sick and tired of the plain old taste of water? Spice it up a little bit! Throw a slice of strawberry, lemon, mint, kiwi, blueberry, cucumber, or basil in. Or if you really want to be extra, add everything! Your water will surely taste amazing.

5. You can find it (just about) everywhere. 

When traveling to different countries, they're not always going to have that one bottle of fancy whiskey. You may know exactly what isle and shelf to go to in the Wine and Spirits, but traveling somewhere else it may be trickier. With water though, all you have to do is go to the faucet.

6. You could be a water tasting expert

There are wine tasting experts, but I am most definitely a water tasting expert. I can tell you what the difference is between well water, city water, spring water, and bottled water. You may look at me and say I'm crazy, but not all water tastes the same, just like a wine expert would say not all wine tastes the same.

7. You can have a cute reusable water bottle. 

I'll admit, I've put some wine in a reusable Starbucks cup and showed up to a party looking fancy. But that's not an everyday occurrence. Plus, then you have to wash the cup more often. Water doesn't actually dirty glasses, your mouth and germs do. So wash your water bottle as often as you feel necessary when it comes to your germs, but if you put wine in a reusable cup, you better wash it before reusing it.

8. You can't get alcohol poisoning. 

No drinking too much water and throwing up later that night. You're safe to drink as much as you want. At some point you could throw up but that's not because you're poisoning your stomach, just because it's too full.

9. You can't become a water-aholic. 

There's no addiction for water. You never have to worry about it. It doesn't run in the family. It can't develop. You are safe.

10. You need it to live, so you might as well love it. 

Long story short, your body needs water to survive and cannot run on small intakes of water. An obtainable goal that people follow is drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. If your body can survive on four, that's fine and same with if it needs more to survive.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
