Final Exams Dos and Don’ts

Finals week is probably the most daunting few days of your college career. Winter break is so close you can almost taste the gingerbread cookies in your mouth. But first you have to survive your Calculus exam. Four exams, three term papers and a presentation may seem like the impossible dream.

Gifts for the Party Animal In Your Life

There is always that one friend that is the sparkler at every party. And I mean every party, because she never misses one. Infamous for dancing on tables and singing louder than the rest when Miley’s “Party in the USA” comes on, she’s a party animal and you love her just the way she is.

There’s a Time and A Place for Facebooking

Everyone has that one friend who is a habitual Facebook status updater. Their life is an open book for all of their cyber friends to read. As if people care that you are at the gym right now or cleaning out your earwax. There are some things better left un-updated. And there are some places and times when it’s not OK to update either.

Lesson Learned: Storage Bins and Stairs Do Not Mix [VIDEO]

Like this girl, this little experiment seemed like a great idea to me at first. I mean, what could possibly go wrong? Well, except for hitting the 4th stair at the wrong angle and heading teeth first into the floor.

10 Questions for Taylor Momsen

I don't know about you, but if I were Taylor Momsen and I was about to appear on TV (yes, even It's On With Alexa Chung), I'd probably change out of my one-night-stand's military button-down before I went on air. That is, if it were appropriate for my 16-year-old self to be putting out in the first place.

Technology Does Not a Relationship Make

We live, breathe and flirt in a world of high-tech, digital romance. And I can’t say with a straight face that I am not a user and abuser of texting/IMing/FB chatting when it comes to communicating with members of the opposite sex. But there are some instances where no Tweet can do justice to a face-to-face interaction when you’re wheeling and dealing in the game of love.

What Can Your Computer Do For You?

True Life: I'm completely dependent on my computer. It's my life source, as sad as that sounds. But honestly, it can do EVERYTHING. And when I say everything, I mean it. I bet you didn't know the extent of your computer's power. With one simple USB port, the world is your oyster.

Thanksgiving Break Dos and Don’ts

Being back under your parents’ roof for Thanksgiving comes with a cornucopia of blessings, such as mom doing your laundry, shopping sprees and overeating until you actually consider braving the Black Friday crowds just to purchase a pair of jeans with an elastic waistband. However, being back under mom and dad’s watchful eye can be treacherous, as well.

WTF Happened to Prince William?

There’s something that’s been on my mind recently, and I’m hoping I’m not the only one who has noticed. But seriously, what happened to Prince William and when exactly did he get assaulted with the ugly stick? Because with every day that passes, William begins to look more and more like his father, and that’s a genetic battle that he is most definitely going to lose.

Costco Goes Couture!

Chanel at Costco? STFU. I thought the only thing of value they had there was the 40-pack of Trojans for a mere $10. Who knew that between the 80 rolls of Angel Soft toilet paper and the caskets, a myriad of designer brand names could be found at your local Costco warehouse?

Are You Fugly? Ask Your iPhone!

Ever heard of Fibonacci's Golden Ratio? Yeah, me either. But I feel like it's maybe the one thing I would have appreciated learning about in math class. But that's what the iPhone is for! There is a new app called "Fit or Fugly" that uses the Golden Ratio, which measures how symmetrical your face is, to tell you just how beautiful or hideous you actually are.

Want Some Placenta On Your Face?

I’m all for living an organic lifestyle. There’s simply no reason not to. But I draw the line at smearing birthing excrement on my face. Gross, I know, but Hollywood is telling me that the new fountain of youth comes from the very beginning of youth itself. So alert the media: the new craze for the beauty-obsessed is placenta facials.

CollegeCandy’s Gay Men Of The Year

GQ magazine has unveiled its annual “Men of the Year” list. They have men in every category from Leader of the Year: Obama, to Badass of the Year: Clint Eastwood. While GQ did a comprehensive job of compiling the best men out there (who will all be starring in tonight's sexy dreams), it got me to thinking. What about Best Gay Man of the Year?
