Coupled. And Leaving On a Jet Plane

Oh air travel, how I despise thee. All flight delays/massive airport navigation/stinky seatmates aside though, I am actually very (very) excited to be flying into DC tomorrow. I’ve never been, and I’m so pumped to explore our nation’s great capital.

The Post-Grad Journey: I’m Officially a Post-Grad

I did it! I graduated. Although the moment of hearing my name, walking across the stage, receiving my diploma, and turning my tassel went by incredibly fast, the road to Commencement has been an unforgettable eye-opening four-year journey.

The 11 Things You Do In Your 20′s That You’ll Regret When You’re 40

Let’s face it: we all make stupid decisions. Like choosing a fifth over a review session, or bringing that guy home…who stole our iPod in the morning. That’s part of college life... and a big part of what makes it so memorable. But there are some choices that have longer lasting repercussions; things we do now that will haunt us later.

Web Spy: Voyij.com

Spring Break is just around the corner, and it has college students everywhere are dreaming of a week free from classes, preferably spent partying and relaxing on a beach somewhere warm. However, that's not always a reality on a college student's budget, and many students resort to spending their week off from school at home--or worse, stuck in the abandoned dorms--while everyone else is having fun.

Web Spy: The Weather Stylist

Getting dressed in the morning is always such a hassle: finding an outfit among the array of shirts, pants, skirts, sweaters, shoes, and belts in your closet that's both stylish and weather-appropriate is both stressful and time-consuming. Usually, I spend about 10 minutes watching the weather channel with my closet doors open, hoping for inspiration, only to just throw on another tee-cardigan-jeans combination.

Thanks a Lot, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

While many of us were opening presents and eating mom's homemade breakfast in our Christmas pajamas on December 25th, there were some people out there who were just not feelin' the Christmas spirit. Like, I don't know, the man who attempted to blow up a Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Detroit?

Duke It Out: Study Abroad

The time has come once again to start picking classes for spring semester (really? didn't we just do this?) and my mind turns to places that won't be covered in grey slush come January. Places with warm, sunny vistas and boys with sexy accents. In other words, places abroad.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: We Want A Do-Over!

No matter how much we all love college, I know that everyone has that one thing they'd like to do-over. Being that we're all heading back to campus in a few weeks (Oh wait, not me.

Why You Should…Go To Japan

Let's look at the facts - our economy is bad, everyone is cutting back, no one has money (maybe that's just me), and even the weather is bad. If there was ever a time that vacations were needed, it's now. Whatever happened to the glory days of the traditional random college backpacking trip or the "I need to find myself" adventure to who-knows-where? Well, go find yourself! Actually, I already found you - you're in Japan.

I’m Torn: Summer School

Ahhh, summer. The sweet, glorious days of summer. Days spent lounging by the pool, building sandcastles at the beach, or lying in bed all day watching old episodes of The OC on Soap Net. School's finally out, and since the last long vacation you had was winter break, you're ready for some of mom's home cooking and not getting up from your bed. Ever.
