    How to Cure A Hangover!

    In the spirit of my current condition, I thought I’d take a few minutes to discuss the finer points of curing a hangover. We all know what causes a hangover, but what exactly is a hangover? One simple word: Revenge. A hangover is your body’s way of punishing you for poisoning yourself. You wouldn’t pour sulfuric acid in your gas tank and expect your car to win the Indy 500, and your body is no different. Just replace racing with basic motor skills and the ability to effectively leave your bed. It’s far too late for fun analogies though, isn’t it? You’ve already made your mistakes; lucky for you, you…

    5 Things Every Person in Their Twenties Should Do

    Top 5 Things Every Man in Their Twenties Should Do 1) Write a Bucket List The number one thig I’d say to do must be to make a bucket list. Although writing one can make a great thing to keep in your memories, the main thing is to think of your goals, and things you want to do and see, while you can.

    Meal prepping

    I had a busy work week coming up that I knew would result in late nights and not much time in the middle of the day so I decided to use it as an opportunity to try out meal prepping. Meal prepping, if you haven’t heard of it, is when you prepare all your meals for the week (or any given time) in advance.  The most obvious advantage is that you have a weeks worth of tasty food all ready to go! Other benefits of food prepping include being able to control portion size easily and effectively, less cooking time is required as you are cooking everything at once in…
