  • And We Call Ourselves Accepting?

    And We Call Ourselves Accepting?

    As far as people go, I am rather intolerant. I am intolerant of people who do not clean the coffee maker after they use it. I am intolerant of couples that walk too slowly together on the sidewalk and therefore block all of the people behind them. Mismatched outfits and too much eye makeup make my blood boil. However, I’ve always felt that I exemplify a very accepting society when it comes to the bigger issues.

    Dry Spells Make You Do Crazy Things (Like Vacuums)

    One CollegeCandy Editor’s Dream: A Chat with O.A.R.

    If someone were to ask me to list my favorite bands, Of A Revolution (O.A.R.) would most definitely be at number one. Which is saying a lot, considering I am a Michigan grad and the boys of O.A.R. got together at Ohio State, a school I have learned to loathe in the deepest part of my core. But I can’t help it; these guys are good. Really good. And no matter what is going on in my life, popping in one of their 6 albums always makes me feel better.
