Huge Group of Girls [Video]

It seems that whenever we girls decide to go out, we end up walking into the bar or club with a posse of, like, 15 females. Once we're in our element, we "dance, dance, dance" and "text, text, text". This hilarious music video does a wonderful job of explaining just what happens when a huge group of girls roll into a bar. There's even a "Drunk Girl Roll Call" including Becky, who's that one girl's cousin. Not to mention, the song is sort of catchy!

This Post Grad Life: My First College Bar Experience

Me and a few girlfriends put on our highest heels and tightest jeans, teased out our hair, chugged a glass of wine and strut our stuff downtown. For the first time, I felt a hint of cougar status brew in my insides. I was only a year older than most of the people in the bar...aside from the 18-year-old freshman busting in with fake IDs. But we all promised ourselves that this was only an experiment -- to hands-on discover how much we'd grown up in the past year. Right?

Summer in the City: Drinkin' on the Cheap

It’s safe to say that coming from the land of Thirsty Thursday nights, where $5 liquor pitchers and $1 beers reign, to the land of $12 mixed well drinks has been an adjustment. It’s enough to wonder whether the experience from my unpaid internship is worth as I dish out more cash in one night than I do in a month at the bars from my university town.

How to Act the First Time You Go to a Bar

Everyone remembers their first time at a bar. Whether they were 17 with a fake ID, or they actually waited until they turned 21, it's relatively exciting experience.

We've All Been There: Frozen

It's cold outside. Like, chill-you-to-the-bones cold. So cold, not even your North Face jacket and Uggs can save you. The moment you step outside to go that class-you-really-wish-you-could-skip-but-the-TA-is-a-jerk-who-will-dock-your-grade-if-you-miss-even-one, the air stings your face and makes your eyes water.

It's a new year, you tell yourself, a new decade. There's no better time to make some changes and improve upon yourself.
