Mariah Carey Hospitalized With Severe Flu

This is why we get flu shots, people.

The Starting Line: Where is my Chicken Soup?

The air is crisp, the dorms are abuzz with “I’m going home!” and my suitemate and I are—feverish. Literally.

Show That Flu Who’s Boss!

The flu sucks. There, I've gone and said it; plain and simple. It makes you feel gross, look gross and keeps you in bed all day (in a very different way than you'd want).

We’ve All Been There: Sick In Bed

As you try to rouse yourself out of bed, you feel it. Your head hurts, you can’t swallow and your whole body just feels achy. You walk to the bathroom to wash up, hoping it’s just one of those “I slept with my mouth open” deals; it will go away in a few minutes.

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.
