  • The Alcohol Diaries: Raspberry Lemonade and Vodka

    I finished out my strange and wonderful year with the greatest group of friends I could have asked for. Maya was the one who got me through the year. We spent an obscene amount of time together and made what seems like a lifetime of memories. I’m writing this from her hometown, where I’m spending my precious two weeks of vacation this summer. Emma, another suitemate, completed the trio. She’s honest, outspoken, and willing to shoot the shit for hours, even in the middle of the night. She grew closer to Maya and I in our second semester and I couldn’t be more grateful she did. Nat was the seventh…

  • Rum and Coke / Vodka / Kahlua / White Wine

    I never imagined I’d find myself lost on the outskirts of Boston at 8 AM on a Saturday morning. I had gotten lost because I’d tried to walk home and veered off into the wrong direction. I’d tried to walk home because I was too nauseous to get on the train. I was too nauseous to get on the train because I’d been puking since 6 AM. I’d been puking since 6 AM because the night before I’d ingested two rum and Cokes, one vodka mixer, several glasses of Kahlua and half a bottle of white wine. I’m feeling a little puke-y just thinking about it. I’d arrived late to…

  • The Alcohol Diaries: Whiskey Sours

    We had a small bottle of Jack Daniels and a massive bottle of Jameson (it was St. Patty’s Day, after all). On Saturday night I mixed whiskey sours, which I still really like, despite what followed.   I’d started my first semester of college with five roommates and ended it with four. Tricia, whose tiny shoebox of a room had been right next to mine, transferred to another school after a chaotic couple of months. Although our replacement suitemate was perfectly nice (and caused significantly less drama), the “old suite dynamic”, as we called it, had breezed out of the city with Tricia the week before Christmas. Tricia and Carly,…

  • How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Make My Fear My Bitch Lover

    I am playing with my band onstage in a small club, under blue and red lights. I feel a tug at the hem of my shirt. I try to ignore it and stay with the words I’m singing and the notes I’m playing. But the insistent tugs continue – in fact, they become even more frequent and strong – and they succeed in pulling me out of where I want to be. I struggle to keep looking forward, keep focusing on the task at hand. The tugs turn into yanks, and then a constant tapping on my shoulder. I cannot bear to look back at this force that must be…

  • The Alcohol Diaries: Shots

    “Okay. We’re going to get as drunk as we can in thirty minutes.” Not one to say no to such a challenge, I let Nat into the suite and put my homework aside. It was a Thursday night. Emma was at dinner with friends, Maya had gone home for the weekend and I wasn’t really sure where the other suitemates were – I was too focused on being a complete loser and getting some boring assignment out of the way. Nat had a not-particularly-exciting party coming up and didn’t want to pre-game alone. I met Nat on the first day of classes, but it’s hard to say exactly how we…

  • The Alcohol Diaries: Vodka in a Sprite Bottle

    My friends and I met Carlos at yet another frat party in Allston. Fraternity guys at parties usually fall into two camps: those who are creepy and those who are uninterested and unable to begin a conversation with girls they don’t know. Which is okay, as I too have trouble striking up conversations with people I’ve never met (and never really had any desire to meet) while bad rap music blares in the background and there’s nothing but warm beer to drink. But anyway, Carlos was different. He was comfortable, but not cocky. He dressed well and talked to us like it came naturally to him. He was a little…

  • Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

    For some of you, sex may be a new thing you’re trying out lately, and that’s cool. But for those of you who have been at it for awhile, you probably know that sometimes it can get dull. So, in order to keep your sex spicy like your personality (yeah? yeah.), here’s some of my favorite tricks to use in the bedroom…or you know, wherever it happens. 1. Your first step towards a better sex life – watch some porn, read some erotica, check out some blogs (like this one, duh) or whatever you’re comfortable with in order to find some bedroom inspiration. An artist always gathers inspiration before just slappin’…

  • Last Minute Tips For Finals Week

    Study Tips:   With the first round of tests quickly approaching, you’re probably thinking it’s about time to freak out and lock yourself in your dorm room and cry. No worries, friend, I’ve got you covered. Especially for all you freshmen out there, to whom studying might be a completely new concept. I know I, personally, didn’t really study all that much until I got to college. So, when it was time for me to buckle down and hit the books, I was at a complete loss as to how to study for my first official college exam. Here are some helpful hints that I have learned throughout my time…

  • Senioritis: The Disease That Is Plaguing My Life

      Senioritis: It’s a Thing. Letterman jackets, lunch table cliques, Friday night football games, ditching seventh period just because – these are just a few of the things that remind me of high school. And then there’s Senior year, which is an entirely different story. I don’t know about you (but I’m feelin’ twent- …no? okay, sorry), but when I think about senior year of high school, I think of one thing – senioritis.   This sneaky little guy caught like wild fire at my high school. Teachers practically had to pull teeth to get seniors to come to class and turn in work; I pretty much didn’t put in…

  • College 101: Two WRONG Ways To Party

    I was the stereotypical party girl during my freshman year of college. Nearly every weekend, you could find me at a house party or a bar, dancing and drinking the night away. It’s a phase that that many people go through; and one that inevitably brings with it mistakes and regrets, which most likely turn into a long list of what to avoid when going for a night on the town.   Gif Source 1. Now, this first rule of thumb was taught to me not by my own actions, but my best friend’s. It was bound to happen to one of us, though, because we were new to the whole partying thing,…

  • Spin City: A Guide To Doing Laundry In College

    Upon entering college, I came to the realization that many of my fellow pupils, mostly being of the male persuasion, simply did not know how to do their laundry. Not only did they lack the knowledge to do laundry, but they also lacked proper laundry room-sharing etiquette. This is kind of annoying to those of us who have been doing our laundry since middle school, and simply just want to get our laundry done quickly and efficiently. I know this seems like an insignificant subject, but I can recall many a time my freshman year of college being asked, “do I wash this in hot or cold water?” Of course,…

  • Two Rules Every College Girl Breaks

    Two Rules Every College Girl Breaks Finding a boyfriend in college these days is pretty much like finding a Chanel bag at a discounted price; it just doesn’t happen. Now, granted, I’m speaking for the average college girl. The “I like to get drunk, hang with my friends, and I think I am a pretty attractive girl”. We all know the “I’m super involved in church girl” automatically gets wifed up in college after being here for maybe 30 seconds. But like, why is it so difficult for the rest of us? From a guy’s point of view, it’s pretty simple. For them, it’s college. This is the time for…
