• Hide Your Hangover In 7 Minutes!

    Now that summer is sneaking up on us, it's time to start preparing yourself for plenty of nights out.

  • Where’s The Weirdest Place You’ve Ever Woken Up?

    College life can get pretty crazy -- especially when alcohol gets involved. Especially when that alcohol comes from a cooler labeled Jungle Juice. So this week we were in the mood to hear some crazy "only in college" stories and asked you in our weekly Monday Facebook poll "where's the weirdest place you've ever woken up?"

  • Morning After: Never Drinking Again

    It's safe to say that my New Year's Eve celebration got way out of control this year. This year my college friends and I decided to go all out for the night. It's our last year of college and we barely even talk to our home friends anymore, so it made perfect sense that we have a mid-break reunion in the big city.

  • Friday Faves: The 6 Stages of Getting Drunk

    It wouldn't be a Friday night if you weren't incredibly inebriated and on the verge of getting a record-breaking 10th DUI. But how did you get from your desk in the library to this high-speed car chase?

  • We’ve All Been There: Procrastinating

    Your 10 page paper on the complete works of Shakespeare is due in less than a week. You vowed to spend all of Sunday at the library working on it, but an impromptu beer pong tournament broke out at your house on Saturday night and you were so busy eating Oreo Cakesters and chugging Vitaminwater that the entire day passed you by.

  • The Funniest Morning Regrets

    Yesterday we asked all our Twitter-capable readers to tweet their biggest morning regrets and we were wowed to see that we were quickly outdone by some of our followers. We consciously chose blogging as a profession so it's pretty hard to beat us in the #morningregrets category, but like we said, you did!

  • Coupled. And Making The World A Better Place

    About 3 weeks ago, David and I were laying in bed on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, nursing epic hangovers from a Happy Hour that lasted far too many hours. After eating an entire pizza and deciding we were too lazy even to go rent a movie, we channel surfed, trying to find something we could both agree on. Naturally we settled on a marathon of Flip This House (can anyone ever get enough of Armando Montelongo? C’mon, just saying his name puts me in a great mood).

  • Drinking: A Love/Hate Relationship

    There's so much I love about drinking: it helps me forget about stress and schoolwork, it makes everything that happens so much funnier, and it's fun to do outside when it's nice out. (...and inside when it's crappy out. And in the morning. And in the night. And on Mondays.) And those crappy Black Eyed Peas songs you usually can't stand? Total fist pumpers! Not to mention the hilarious piecing together that happens the morning after.

  • The 6 Stages of Getting Drunk

    It wouldn't be a Friday night if you weren't incredibly inebriated and on the verge of getting a record-breaking 10th DUI. But how did you get from your desk in the library to this high-speed car chase?

  • The 20 Things That Are Only OK in College

    Keg stands, day drinking, mardi gras beads, vegging out at home during the holidays... these are all things that happen during college. And by all accounts, they should happen, you know, before you're catapulted into the real world where whatever you do at your local bar on a Thursday will not go over well in your cubicle on Friday. Yeah, not only does college give you that yummy degree, it gives you the freedom to act like a college kid.

  • St. Paddy’s Day – The Aftermath

    So St. Paddy's Day 2010 has come and gone and if the giant foam hat I discovered in my bed this morning (that I don't even remember wearing...) is any indication, the day was a huge success. Not a success: my brand new pillow cases that are now permanently printed with glittery green shamrocks that were once adorning my cheeks.

  • One Month Challenge: Sober, Week 4

    It's here. My final sober weekend. Even though this month has flown by and been not only easy, but totally productive, I am at the point where I am truly glad it's over. For the most part, going stone cold sober hasn't really been as challenging as I expected it to be. But that all changed on Wednesday. I don't know if it was the playlist was I listening to or the stress mounting, but I hit a wall and for the first time in 25 days, all I wanted was a giant cocktail.

  • One Month Challenge: Sober, Week 3

    Another week. Another drinkless week. And it almost wasn't that way. On Monday my friend's parents were in town and took us out to a nice dinner. I was looking at the menu deciding between steak and fish when the waiter began pouring wine around the table.

  • One Month Challenge: Sober

    When I told my friends I would be giving up alcohol for an entire month, I got one of three reactions: 1. Why would you do that?! 2. I bet you $100 you don't make it. 3. Why the hell would you do that?!

  • Life After College: I’m Lame. Yeah, I Said It

    Riddle me this. Why did no one warn me that 3-day weekends don't exist in the real world? Maybe I was naive and in a college bubble, but I truly had no idea that people worked full days on Friday. Like it still blows me away me when my boss gives me a ten page to-do list on Friday at 4:00. By that time I'm in full weekend mode and already planning my outfit for the night.

  • The CC Weekly Weigh In: Annoying Drunks

    Let's be honest: drinking is fun. So fun, in fact, you're probably nursing a hangover right now so you can get the party started again in a few short hours. Everything is just so much more exciting when you've got a couple vodka sodas in your (carb-loaded) belly. Songs are better. Food tastes better. The weirdo guys from your Poli Sci class look better.

  • The CC Weekly Weigh In: Academic Regrets

    Did you know that college was all about academics? Yeah, we didn't get that memo either. We spent more time researching easy professors, building a schedule that didn't require waking up before noon/at all on Fridays, and playing Kings, than actually studying.

  • The Morning After: Untag, Untag, Untag…

    Only a recent graduate of the underage club, the majority of my nights out have consisted of shimmying up my skirt to woo a bouncer, or settling for a dive bar in the middle of nowhere. On this particular night, I believe it was a Tuesday - a night when I shouldn’t have been out in the first place since I had class the next morning - the former had not worked out and so we ended up at the latter...

  • College Myths Debunked: Liquor Before Beer…Doesn’t Make That Much of a Difference

    There it is, the golden rule. Liquor before beer and you’re in the clear! The thing is, I know this isn’t true, I knew on my 16th birthday that this “rule” was BS. The amount of alcohol you drink—not the type and not the order in which you drink it—determines how drunk you get.

  • Weekly Ten: Sober and Loving it

    For the past four weeks I have stopped drinking. Like, completely. I know - scary. Especially for a girl like me who loves to pair a drink with every time of the day. 9:30 AM? Bloody Mary. 11:45 AM? Margarita. 12:00 PM? Vodka Cran. 1:30 PM? Harpoon Summer Ale. 6:00 PM? Dirty Martini. Make that porn star dirty. You get the picture. I am definitely no lightweight.

  • Dear Welcome Week, I LOVE YOU

    There is a holiday that exists that, in my heart, surpasses Christmas and even Halloween (which is a pretty bad ass holiday, because it involves drinking, candy, and costumes). This holiday is Welcome Week. Oh yes, that's a holiday, even if it isn't recognized by calenders or...anyone who doesn't go to college.

  • Gradvice: Tips for Surviving Real Life

    As I write this very post I am curled up in my bed feeling the effects of an 8-hour drinking binge on a Sunday afternoon. I can't see straight, my head hurts, and I haven't had the strength to put on a bra. Or pants.

  • An Open Letter To “That” Girl

    Dear Drunk Girl, Hi sweetie. Long time no see. I take that back. I saw you last Friday. Same place, same hazy look in your eyes, different black dress that falls down to expose your bra. This one doesn’t have vomit on it… yet! Congratulations.

  • College Graduation: It All Comes Full Circle

    I remember my college graduation like it was yesterday. After a group of my friends threw an open bar graduation party for family and friends the night before, I woke up graduation morning hungover, naked and confused about my whereabouts. I rolled over to find myself lying next to the first college friend I made at orientation.
