You know how you hit the hottest club in town one night with all your BFFs, looking Beyoncé + Nicki Minaj remix ***Flawless, and then the next day you’re all so lol hungover that you can’t even deal with society right now? Chances are, like statistically speaking, you probably ate a piece of pizza at some point during the night and you probably also did this while shouting “I WOKE UP LIKE DIS” to everyone.

A survey of over 1,000 binge drinkers conducted by recovery.org reveals some pretty interesting stuff you didn’t know about your drinking habits. For starters did you know that breakfast food is the most loved hangover cue but tacos are absolutely the last thing a hungover person wants to put in their mouth? Also, drunk people with dogs are more likely to play card games whereas drunk cat owners are more likely to do drugs???

Confidence

1. Open your chest, stand up straight, walk with authority. No slouching!

2. Don’t fidget!

3. Take a deep breath, and slow down. The faster your speech and higher your voice, the more nervous you seem.

4. Stop second-guessing yourself. Get out of your head, man!

5. Repeat after me: I am worth your time.

Managing Stress

6. Deep breathing exercises to calm your mind.

7. Walk around for a little bit — it helps clear your mind.

8. Talk to someone you trust. They can guide you and relieve that stress!

9. Place a warm heat wrap around your neck. (I fill up an old sock — clean, of course — with rice and tie off the end. I heat it in the microwave for about a minute and place it on my neck. It’s very soothing. Add lavender for extra effect.)

10. Sit…

21 Things You Should Never Be Embarrassed About

Pretty Much..

Thought Catalog

1. How many likes and comments you get on social media. I don’t know when it became a contest to have every status about what you ate for lunch harvest 20 people’s positive commentary, but it doesn’t mean anything about you as a person.

2. (And while we’re at it, no one should care or even have a moment of introspection over not having enough social media friends. Facebook friends not Chuck E Cheese tickets that have more value as they are added. The real introspection should be for people who have more than a thousand of them because, like, why?)

3. Whether or not you shave your personal bits, and to what extent. It’s no one else’s business what your box/ween looks like, no matter how many magazine covers tell us what the “hot new trend” is.

4. Whether or not you have had a one-night stand. Having them…

27 Simple Things That Every Woman Needs

Thought Catalog

1. A pair of jeans that fit you correctly in all the right places, lift the cheeks, and don’t stretch out into sad puffiness within two hours of wearing them.

2. A pair of boots that keep your feet warm and comfortable in the winter without giving you the upside-down corn dog look of Uggs.

3. Your signature scent. (But let’s be clear, perfume is expensive as hell, and no one should be expected to pay for that shit. Get your perfume sample game to the level where you are going six months deep on samples from ONE Sephora. I smell like Flowerbomb for zero dollars, AND I can carry it in my makeup bag with ease.)

4. A favorite book that you can always grab and re-read an excerpt from while curled up in bed. (Mine is Neither Here Nor There by Bill Bryson…

25 things every woman needs to know.

Good Read.

HANNAH BRENCHER

1) Life is a steep, uphill battle but it’s fierce & it’s beautiful & you’ll be sad to see it go if you live it right.

2) New people won’t stop coming into your life and opportunities won’t stop knocking on the door but you need to have the space for them. In all you currently have– be them relationships or obligations– step back and ask yourself “why.” If you can find the answer, hold tighter. If the answer escapes you, it’s time to let something go.

3) You should resolve to be awesome for the rest of your life. Right now. Do it.

4) Leggings, no matter how much we wish, will never one day magically transform into pants. Wearing them with tops that don’t cover your bum is not cute. Please, please, please stock up on pants.

5) Goals are not a January 1st kind of thing. Set…
