I don't know about you, but Facebook has gradually begun to take over my life over the past few years. It's getting to the point where I think in third person, a la the Facebook status: "Kathryn is really stressed about her class schedule this spring." "Kathryn is annoyed with bad drivers who slow her down." "Kathryn really needs to get laid." See? Now that last one would be inappropriate.
I remember those naive high school days when puking during a rager meant that a) you couldn't control your liquor and b) the party was over, for you. That's why I was shocked one night during my freshman year of college, when my friend came back from the bathroom and proudly announced, "Oh, man, I just puked my brains out!"
Being a poor college student sucks...except when other people notice and begin to cater directly to us and our needs. Like the student rate at the movie theater, or Apple's sweet discount for college students.
I hate to break it to you, but if you're planning on sacrificing your summer for an internship this year, now is the time to start searching, applying, and interviewing.

You're so busy with classes (and a rockin' social life), you can't seem to get ahead in the finance field.

I confess... I've missed the past couple weeks' worth of new GG episodes. First of all, I've been crazy busy and can't even keep my days straight....
Is the spring semester half over already? Sadly, it's true. And while some of our peers will be looking forward to spending the summer at one pool party after another, many of us are currently scouring job listings for summer internships.
It's your BFF. You've known her since you were five. And yeah, you just spent a whole paycheck on housing, but you still need her to hang out. But still, you're both broke, college students. So who's taking the brunt, financially?
Sure, I've been in love before, but in a watch-the-sunrise-over-bong-rips kinda way, not a need-to-keep-my-hand-on-your-ass-to-claim-my-territory kinda way.
It’s easy to throw down your MasterCard and forget about how much your text books cost for the semester; it’s...
New Year’s is long gone. The singles just finished drowning their emotions in V-day bar specials. What do we celebrate...
With the economy suffering, a lot of airlines have slashed their baggage allowances. This season, more than ever, it’s important...
