The Morning After: I've Said (Far) Too Much

By now you’re almost half way through Winter Break. You’ve got the major holidays behind you- Christmas eve, Christmas day, New Year’s- and that means pretty much all scenarios involving getting drunk with your family have expired. How’d you do? Make it through with minimal blows to your self-respect, pride, and squeaky-clean image?

Morning After: The Night I Robo-tripped

I was one of the good kids in high school. I didn't drink. I didn't do drugs. And my close friends were the same way. During my senior year, my best friend's parents went out of town and left her in charge of the house. Naturally, she decided to have a party. In our minds, that meant inviting some boys over and hanging out.

The Morning After: The Bedroom Treasure Hunt

I saw him at my first sorority mixer. He was the social chair of his fraternity and from the moment he checked my name on the guest list, I was in love. He looked dreamy in his designer jeans and flip flops, his hair perfectly floppy. And he knew my name. Well, at least for that moment.

The Morning After: The Surprise Parental Visit

After months of leading me on, the boy I was falling in love with decided to hook up with one of my hall mates. I probably wouldn't have even found out had I not woken up early that Saturday morning to go for a run...and found him walking down the hall with his shirt inside-out and his shoes in his hand.

The Morning After: The Nerves Won

After four long and frustrating years of sexual tension, my high school crush and I finally had our first hot makeout sesh the first week of college. That is if you consider making out with some nature special about tarantulas playing in the background to be hot. Regardless, it happened and I was oh so excited.

The Morning After: Operation Bagel Bites

Every time my roommates and I have a party we tape our kitchen cabinets shut, empty out the fridge and hide all of our food in our locked rooms. We want to protect ourselves from those random drunk idiots that may come through and steal everyone's sh*t, eat all their food and make a big mess.

Running the Bases, College Style

Was there anything more exhilarating, more energizing, more exciting than grilling a friend over AIM in 7th grade about what base she got to with her boyfriend? Of course at that point, first base was getting matched up with a guy during an intensive game of M.A.S.H, second base was making out in the back row of a movie theater while your friends sitting next to you giggled, and third base was letting him feel your training bra over your shirt.

The Morning After: The Curse of the Green Shorts

It all started with lime green spandex shorts. I thought they were the perfect thing to wear to the Glow theme party. And the St. Patrick's theme party. But those lime green spandex shorts really only spelled trouble for me.

The Morning After: Stripper Poles and Philosophy Notes

Freshman year actually scares me. Like, for real. The things I did make me wonder how I ever survived it. And here is a story that will make you wonder the same thing. This particular tale takes place on a Wednesday. The day before a big Philosophy exam.

The Morning After: Rebels Without a Cause

It was one of the first warm nights in a long time and everyone on campus was throwing impromptu house parties. I knew I'd be walking all over campus, so I ditched my plans for a dress and heels and opted for jeans and flip flops instead. I met up with some of the girls in my sorority and we headed out to one of the many parties of the night.

The Morning After: Bucket O Wings

My sophomore year I lived with my best friend in an all-girls' dorm. Needless to say, squeezing 500+ girls into one building was begging for trouble. Constantly surrounded by tampon wrappers, curling irons and vaginas (I mean, really) took its toll on my tiny, horny roomie. She met a guy in her Creative Writing class who she believed to be "the One,"even though he was an obvious tool (bleach blonde, tan, AND president of a frat).

The Morning After: The St. Patty’s Day Peep Show

As per usual in my life, my senior year (the first one, mind you) was spent obsessing over a gargantuan, shaggy-haired, Beatles' lovin, ex-BF who thought he was way too good for me. Even though he ignored me 99% of the time, I basically revolved my life around him. I planned my weekend festivities around where I thought he might show up.

The Morning After: Marking His Territory

As soon as I got to college, I started dating a guy who was a junior. Martin* wasn't my typical type (basically, he was a lot less attractive, motivated, and thoughtful than what I'm used to) but I decided to give him a shot anyway. I was the typical nervous freshman and I think I subconsciously felt like he had knowledge that could make my transition into college a little easier.

The Morning After: The Case of the Frisky First-Year

Let me take you back to a simpler time: my sophomore year of college. I had recently been dumped by my longtime boyfriend, and after about a month of taking solace in Half Baked and Friends reruns, I was finally ready to put myself on the market again.

The Morning After: International Affairs

I elbowed my way to the bar, giving fake happy kisses to every camp/youth group/high school "friend" I saw along the way. They all wanted to catch up (and tell me how great I looked!), but I had one thing in mind: vodka. That is until I spotted, across the room, my camp crush. I met him when I was 14 and fell truly, madly, deeply in love with him. He was super tall, super hot and the object of every single girl's affection.
