Some things I’ve learned from my recent move

Following my graduation from CSC, I moved to the Lake of the Ozarks. While I have only been here a few weeks, I have already discovered some very important life lessons.

1. ALWAYS apply sunscreen. Even when you think you’ve applied enough apply more. No one wants to spend their first few days as a lobster, and the tan lines aren’t always cute.

2. NEVER and i repeat this wholeheartedly NEVER go to the store on weekends. You will never get out the line is horrendous and people are rude. Well maybe not all the people but enough that you will always wish that you had not gone.

3. If you’re going to get on random peoples boats be prepared to have to find a way home. Trust me on this one I had to pay 40$ for an uber. However, it was fun. So, I guess weigh the options?

4. If you’re getting off your boat onto the dock hold on tightly to your phones and other belongings . This one goes out to my girl Georgia for not only dropping her phone but her boyfriends RIP ***they went diving and actually found her boyfriends phone but not hers. Not the best end to an otherwise pleasant day.

5. Don’t go to certain bars on the lake alone or leave your drink unattended. I don’t know this from personal experience, but my friends who are Literal cops told me it’s just not a good place. Roofie central, sketchy, or dare I say ~shady~ people go there.

Editor Suggestions for drinks when you have been dumped

Take this advice at your own risk because we are a real emotional bunch

  1. Whiskey neat

If I have to go through a break up, I want the burn so it has to be just straight whiskey. Another reason, is that it’ll give me confidence. Now that confidence is important, that way I can either punch someone in the face or flirt with someone better than my ex.


If I ever was dumped, I would drink whiskey neat. It’s bitter and it burns just like I would be feeling. Its also straight to the point which I wish that relationship could have been. Oh, and it would keep me warm at night since they won’t be anymore.

2. Vodka, a lot of it.

If you can’t remember who they were, then you can’t remember to be sad about it. Kidding, kinda?


I always drink vodka because I’m not a great drinker and it really hurts when I drink it. Then I can focus on that pain instead of the terrible, terrible emotional pain.


Well I’ve been dating my girlfriend for five years… that being said, I would definitely drink vodka. More specifically something like Everclear. Like I would have absolutely no idea what to do after losing such a strong bond.

3. Tequila

I drink tequila, but only in margaritas. Tequila really works well because I don’t want to forget about them, but I do want to have a good cry. Sometimes it’s nice to just get it out and embrace your emotions. Also, you can get some great food while you just have a meltdown.

4. Creme Liquor

I always go with creme Liquor. I absolutely hate the taste to be honest, but I have a really big travel mug and you can mix it with coffee. You can walk around campus all day just avoiding those emotions. Although I do not advise doing this during finals, that was a poor choice.

5. Water

It’s okay to drink and not feel those emotions or in MT’s case embrace them, but eventually you have to move on. At some point you have to pick yourself up and start moving forward. It doesn’t have to be right now, but you will have to eventually. Also you can start drinking water and working out so you look hot af.
