• Fuck It: A Guide on How to Youth

    I’m writing this to you within the 564 square feet that is my studio apartment, in a complex that when the sun is just right, you can detect even the most esoteric of odors radiating from the community dumpster. I’m a student, also working an internship that pays in peanuts (the gross, orange kind). I worry about student loans, job availability, and health insurance. I’m trying to navigate the rat race of networking while keeping my sanity, my grades, and my job intact. I’m like you; except I’m fucking awesome. Why am I so fucking awesome you ask? Because I’ve figured out the secret to true happiness you idiot, but…

  • Spin City: A Guide To Doing Laundry In College

    Upon entering college, I came to the realization that many of my fellow pupils, mostly being of the male persuasion, simply did not know how to do their laundry. Not only did they lack the knowledge to do laundry, but they also lacked proper laundry room-sharing etiquette.

I respect them more than anyone, and I’ve honestly only been grounded once in my entire life.  If there were a child more loyal than I, they would probably have the names of their parents branded into their skin by now.  Something that I’ve realized as I move into…

  • A Rant On The Life Decisions Of My Peers

    BEGIN RANT. Last time I checked, I was ONLY 20 years old. So, how is it that every single time I log into Facebook, people that I know are getting engaged, married, and/or having BABIES? Since when did that become okay? That’s basically babies having other babies. I’m not going to say that it’s not possible to find someone this early in life, because I know quite a few people that have, but it just blows my mind that someone at the age of 20 knows who they want to spend the rest of their life with. What on earth is the rush to tie the knot THIS early in…
