A False Sense of (Virtual) Intimacy [Sexy Time]

A False Sense of (Virtual) Intimacy [Sexy Time]

Two people meet online somehow. They exchange contact info, and they fall into a loop of talking to each other all day and night via texts, IMs, and/or phone calls. Maybe they end up meeting in real life, but the vast majority of their communication is virtual.

How To Communicate Without Your Phone

How To Communicate Without Your Phone

In light of the recent Blackberry outages, which just so happened to coincide with the day before the iPhone 4S was released (conspiracy alert!), it's come to our attention that we are obsessed with our phones. We can't go five minutes without checking our phones to see if we have texts, emails, tweets, or Facebook messages.

Are You A Social Media Oversharer?

Are You A Social Media Oversharer?

Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr have (sadly) become a drug to our generation (and to our parents, all of a sudden). While social media definitely has its perks, it also has many cons, and I’m not just talking about how easy it is for my entire family to become friends with me and comment on every one of my statuses.

This Holiday Season, Say Sayonara To Technology

This Holiday Season, Say Sayonara To Technology

Receiving a text message gives me a blissful, momentary high. A day without access to the internet is a sad day. If a couple of days go by and I haven’t signed onto Facebook (like that ever happens), I get antsy and feel out of the loop. This loathsome habit isn’t exactly an insightful revelation that came from deep soul searching or a problem unique to myself.

How to Survive With a Lost Cell Phone

How to Survive With a Lost Cell Phone

So there was that one crazy night - you lost count of Jell-O shots, games of beer pong, and perhaps even where you were. You wake up in the morning, the grogginess sets in, and you feel your wallet, your keys, and -- that's it. Your phone is AWOL, and in the new era of technology you're up a creek without a paddle as a college student.

Even long distance relationships don’t seem that long-distance anymore.
