Top 10 ways to get over a rejection of any kind

March 26, 2019 — by Victor Liu and Jeffrey Ma

10. Rest thy head upon thy pillow. As the bard once said, “Sleep is the cousin of death.”

9. Drink your sorrows away. Stay hydrated with water and other non-alcoholic beverages — crying expends a lot of the body’s liquids.

8. You can do better than har. Not her, har. I mean Harvard.

7. Take ibuprofen. If it can dull your headaches, it can probably dull your heartaches too.  
6. Put yourself back out there. Try again, or in the wise words of SHS confessions, “shoot your shot.”
5. Try retail therapy. Purchase $170 prom tickets, even if you don’t have a date.

4. Rewatch your favorite K-dramas. Live vicariously through the love life of your beloved oppa.

3. Raise your standards. “Pshh, I didn’t want to go to Stanford anyway.”
2. Reject their rejection. “No u” works every time.

1. Resort to bribes. USC might change their mind if you have a “talk” with their crew coach.
