To The Girl Who Doesn't Party In College

They are rare, I know.

I know what you all are thinking, she is just writing the article to brag on herself or to show the world the kind of person she is. No, I am writing this article to the girl out there who feels as if she is alone.

Not being a part of the party season is not the most popular thing to do on a college campus.

Most people spend their days thinking about what they will do at night. Life pretty much revolves around the next party. But for people like me, it isn't spent thinking about alcohol or the next party I'm going to attend. And that can get pretty lonely.

It is not like I sit and wallow in my sadness or ever feel like my friends leave me out because I don't drink. I have great friends that support every decision I make.

But, some are not that lucky.

Some girls don't have the support system like me and I am here to tell you to never compromise the person you want to be just because you don't fit in. If you don't want to party, don't give in just because your friends are pressuring you into. Not to sound cliche, but find new friends because they are not your real ones.

Choosing to stay true to you will pay off in the end, and you won't regret it. I promise.

I don't know why you choose to not attend the party scene, but I would be hindering my calling if I didn't tell you why I don't. I know this guy, and his name is Jesus. He is my best friend and the person I talk to about everything. It is because of Him that I decided to not party, to set an example for the people around me.

But, I am also not 21. So I don't think, by any means, that me having a margarita when I turn 21 is hurting my reputation or my testimony.

I firmly believe that alcohol isn't a sin when consumed in the right ways. I also don't ever see myself as a partier, 21 or not. Partying is a way of conforming and a way of becoming what this fallen world deems acceptable.

So to the girl who fails to be the typical college partier, I commend you. I look up to you. I respect you. I want you to know how rare you are. You choosing to not party and rise above the college standard is something you will never regret. I don't believe that my college years are boring because of the way I decide to live my life. I wish that I could befriend each and every girl relating to this article.

So, when those Friday nights get boring, remember that you are not alone. You are rising above the standard.

5 Healthy Drinks To Boost Your Energy

Not your basic iced coffee.


Going on a semester-long coffee binge is not the most sustainable source of energy for your body. At this point in the school year, there are only two months left until summer – you just have to keep up your motivation through finals! If you feel like your eating habits have become exceptionally bad and want to get healthy for summer, try swapping out your morning coffee with these energy-boosting alternatives. With little to no caffeine, these replacements for coffee will fill your body with healthy calories that will help you power through your day the natural way!

1. Iced Green Tea & Lemonade

There is nothing more refreshing than an iced tea and lemonade combo! Natural green tea contains a small dose of caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine, which work together to give you a sustainable energy boost. Green tea is known to improve brain function so you will have the added bonus of increasing your focus.

2. Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie

VICKY ✩ | Dream Food on Instagram: “Anzeige ♥️🍓 CHIA BERRY CUPS with PEANUTBUTTER 🍓♥️ Who's ready? #chia #berryboost . Eine meiner Lieblingskombinationen: selbstgemachte…”

Combine mixed berries and peanut butter powder in a DIY smoothie for a delicious drink that is packed with protein! This powerful energy booster will also help you meet your nutritional needs because it contains fruit, antioxidants, and just enough carbs to get you ready to take on the day.

3. Citrus Spritzer

A glass of orange juice with a splash of seltzer is an easy DIY citrus spritzer that will taste amazing. Drinking orange juice has many health benefits including vitamin C, ascorbic acid (the basic component of collagen), and it even has anti-inflammatory properties. But the best part of all is that the citrus will elevate your energy to keep you from crashing throughout your day.

4. Cold Brew Mint Tea

Mint tea has been linked to enhanced memory and increased alertness. To make your own energy-boosting drink, simply brew a few cups of hot mint tea on the stove and then chill it in the fridge overnight. The next morning, you will have a delicious iced drink that will sharpen your mental awareness while reducing stressors that get you down. Coffee could never live up to such a promise!

5. Coconut Water

Coconut water is an excellent alternative for those who don't like drinking regular water. This replacement contains a great number of nutrients including fiber, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Coconut water also makes for an ideal post-workout drink because it contains enough electrolytes to compete with your favorite sports drink.
