We all have hobbies we do when we're heartbroken—Izzie Stevens from "Grey's Anatomy" baked muffins, hundreds of muffins, Taylor Swift makes record-breaking songs, and other people make pasta. We all know if we could have it carbs would be its own food group, forget protein when there are thousands of things you can do with pasta.

So if you are single and alone and don't know what to do, head to the kitchen, boil some water and get to work.

Here are the things you should do with leftover pasta when you're single:

1. Make A Wig

Justin Timberlake did this with ramen noodles on his head.

2. Bathe in it

If you haven't seen "Patch Adams" you should, but in the end, he makes an old ladies dream come true. She wanted to bathe in a pool of pasta. Ever since seeing this I have wondered what it would feel like. So if you have time and like a zillion boxes of pasta and don't mind the mess, let me know how this works out for you.

3. Make spaghetti tacos

Who else watched "iCarly?" Well if you did you must remember the famous Spaghetti Tacos that was shown throughout the running of the show. Whoever thought mixing Mexican and Italian food would make for a crazy treat?

4. Throw it at the ceiling, let it stick, and try to catch it in your mouth

If it will stick it a wall it will stick to your ceiling. Even though there is a chance it will be stuck up there, there is also a chance it will fall and you are probably hungry. Why else would you be making pasta? Well, just try to catch it with your mouth the worst thing that will happen is that it will fall on your face.

5. Invite your girlfriends over and have a pasta challenge

Everyone loves pasta. So, invite some friends over for a pasta challenge. Everyone makes different dishes, and everyone leaves full! Grab a bottle of wine, eat and drink up!

6. Make rainbow pasta

Time to try out your skills to the test and make rainbow pasta. Have fun with it and make a mess, that's what cooking is all about.

7. Open your own Olive Garden or Fazoli's

So you're probably a master chef by now, so your skills to the test. Take the risk and open a chain restaurant. Feed the people of the world with your skills.

8. Try to make the world's largest noodle

The record for the Longest noodle has been broken after a Chinese food company successfully cooked a single strip measuring a whopping 3,084 m (10,119 ft 1.92 in). Since you have a lot of time on your hands now you can become one with the pasta. I believe in you.

9. Wear penne noodles as rings

Cut a piece of string the size of your finger and slip it through the flimsy pasta and BAM you got a ring. If this doesn't work for you use some manicotti noddles should be big enough to slide right into your fingers, just cut to size.

10. Give back and feed the homeless

It is always good to donate your time and give back. Thousands if not millions of homeless people go hungry each night, but we all know when we make pasta we always make enough to feed an army. So how about going out and feeding those less fortunate than us?

10. Lock yourself away, ugly cry, and eat your pasta

WE WILL NOT JUDGE!

Who needs ice cream when you have carbs? Go head put on "The Notebook" turn off the lights, and eat your heart out.

12. Macaroni art

Your probably sick of eating with it so play with it.

13. Try to make a Bob Ross painting out of the rainbow pasta you made earlier

The new trend seems to be doing Bob Ross Paintings on anything but a canvas. Using everything from makeup to frosting. By this point you have probably already mastered rainbow pasta, so join the trend with rainbow pasta.

14. Create an Instagram account just for all the pasta you've made

Share with the world your new passion. Who knows who you will inspire!

15. Pasta, but make it fashion

If Lady Gaga can rock a meat dress, someone can rock a pasta dress. So get to work and maybe by the time your done you'll be showing your avant-garde look at fashion week or maybe just end up on "Project Runway."

16. Have a food fight

Has anyone ever denied a food fight? Gather your friends, get some white shirts, and make a mess. By the time you're done, you'll probably laugh on the floor not even worried about the massive mess. You deserve to have fun.

17. Pig out

Although eating a large amount of pasta is shamed upon by society, you obviously made it for a reason so why not enjoy it? Just put those sweats on and eat up.

I Am A Hopeless Romantic Living In A World Where One-Night Stands Are The Norm

It's the little things.

In today's society, it can certainly start to feel like no one takes love seriously anymore.

Whether it's that one couple who has broken up and gotten back together more times than you can count, the two friends-with-benefits no one can figure out, your local womanizer, or just hookups in general, love and lust are a huge part of specifically college life and culture.

As a hopeless romantic, being part of a generation that "just wants to have fun" can be really frustrating, especially when you just want to find something real. It is so easy for people to put on a fake act just to get what they want and sometimes this can be extremely hard to see through. I'm sure we've all had some kind of incident with someone who played nice but had ulterior motives and the sad truth is that it can be impossible to recognize a person's artificiality.

I am a hopeless romantic.

I have always classified myself as such, and it has remained true. Sure, I can make the most of the freedoms I have as a single college woman, but deep down I just want to find my person.

I've had my fair share of letdowns, and I think we all have, but being a hopeless romantic makes it that much more difficult to get past the "what ifs" and fantasies that come along with starting something with someone new. We may already have our hearts set on a person when they decide they've gotten what they wanted and leave.

For me, I find myself caught up in the little things that someone does. I have always been someone who picks up on small details in situations, and sometimes this works against me.

I pick up on the small facial expressions that he may not even realize he is making; the ones that tell you when their guard has been let down, even just for a split second.

I pick up on the way he sits our two cellphones side by side on the nightstand, taking care to line them up perfectly as if that's just their spot.

I pick up on the short moments of laughter where he actually lets himself laugh and forgets about the act.

I pick up on things, and sometimes I end up hurting because of it.

When it comes down to it, though, I wouldn't change the way that I am. I wouldn't change the fact that I find myself in the search for more in a society that mostly only offers me less.

The trait that tends to hurt me most is also the one that I value most. Even if noticing all the little things is something that contributes to my own heartache, I love those moments. There is something beautiful about those tiny things shared by two people, even if the connection ends there.

Sure, it can be hard. But so can everything.

It's just a matter of finding the beauty.

Dedicate Your Summer To Bettering Yourself For Yourself, Not Your Ex

Why waste energy on an ex who doesn't care about you anymore?

1108

I'm single for the summer (yet again, no shock there) but this summer there's something in the air that just feels different. It's the feeling of true acceptance of my single status.

Last summer I was single when I really didn't want to be. My heart with still holding out for a guy who wasn't interested in anything more than my friendship. It took me from late March all the way until Halloween to get over those feelings. However, while working through those tough feelings that summer, I came to enjoy my time on my own and not talking to anyone except my best friends. I didn't have to worry about when I'd get a text back, or if I'd be left on read, or who he'd be out with since I wasn't around. The only thing I needed to worry about was my paychecks and tan lines.

Sometimes after breaking things off with someone who you put so much effort into, whether it was a boyfriend, an almost relationship, or even a friend with benefits, it's easy to want to show off on social media and make them regret ever hurting you or ending things. Why? It's a nice little ego boost, sure, but after those few seconds of glee from the fact that you know they've seen and maybe even liked your picture or your tweet, or saw your story on Snapchat, do you still feel happy? No, you go right back to feeling like crap, whether you want to admit it or not. Stop making yourself all about them when that ship has sailed and start being all about you.

Your ex is off doing their own thing, maybe thinking about you, but obviously not enough to want you back in their life the way you used to be. They are probably out there finding a new person to take your spot because they don't have you at their beck and call anymore. If they're also showing off to show you how much better they are without you or to make you jealous...why are you still following them or still participating in this sick little game for attention? Grow up and block them so you don't have to keep seeing their posts, or be adult enough to stop if you're doing the same as well. If it's only you posting, chances are you just look stupid, so stop before you really embarrass yourself. I was that person, and I know first hand how embarrassed I am for acting the way I did.

Summer is synonymous for doing whatever the hell you want. Wear what you want, say what you want, and be the best version of yourself that only a high dose of Vitamin D can bring out. Your ex is an ex for many reasons. You have to set aside the summer for you and what benefits you only. Don't concern yourself with an ex who doesn't care in the least about you anymore. Coming from someone who posted thirst traps aimed at a specific person along with countless shady AF stories on Snap and Insta in the hopes that this one person and their friends would see it, just stop and save yourself the energy as well as regret.

We're all adults, it's time to stop the petty posts and photos. Post your thirst trap for yourself because you're a sexy queen who doesn't need anyone but herself. Once you start focusing on yourself this summer, instead of your ex, you'll realize just have great it feels to truly be free.
