You wake up. You reach over to your bedside table, grab your ringing phone and click the dismiss button to stop the alarm. Phone still in hand, you rub your left eye, but leave the right one open and peek at the device in your palm. Eleven new emails and four texts.
American Apparel is an awesome place to go for basics. I can't even count how many t-shirts and tanks I have from there. And okay, I do own a few pairs of the shiny hot pants...but I can't remember the last time I wore them (or maybe I can. Those things are priceless.)
Okay so pretty much everything we did when we were kids was an attempt to piss our parents off. Hey, isn't that our duty as their children? Parents need a little excitement in their lives, and until we graduated high school, we were there to provide it. And isn't it so fun now to look and laugh at how absolutely obnoxious we were!
By nature, girls and guys are opposites, and there is an endless list of things we disagree on. I mean, haven't you ever read the book Men Are From Mars, Women are From Venus? I haven't either, but I hear it exists. Point is, there are many things that don't cross the barrier between girls and guys, and we here at CollegeCandy would like to give you a little authority on the basics.

Lying to other people...psh, that's easy (hehe). But lying to ourselves--that's when life gets a little bit difficult. Face it, life is full of moments when we have to do things we don't really want to do. But these things are all a means to an end, and so we spruce up the truth to ease the pain.

Celebs get photographed no matter what they're doing, be it anything from getting married to brushing their teeth. And even though we see ourselves brush our own teeth everyday (hopefully...), we'd rather look at pictures of our fave stars doing the same. Bradley Cooper, I will watch you brush your teeth all day long. Better yet, I'll do it for you.

Movies are all magical when you're a kid. Things are on screen, and they're moving, and a lot of times they have jokes that you think are absolutely hilarious and repeat thousands of times a day for weeks after seeing the movie. At least that's what the kids I babysit do. But that's beside the point.
YouTube has become the ultimate time-waster, and the number of views on these videos is stark proof of how much time we spend watching other people dance/sing/embarrass themselves on our computers. However, I have to disagree a little bit with what the world seems to be watching the most.
If you've ever looked through back to school editions of furniture and home decor magazines, they often focus on things you might want to buy to make your new dorm feel super homey and look super cute. The problem is, I'm not sure any of these "dorm furniture" designers have actually ever seen a dorm room, let alone lived in one. Like, I really love this floor to ceiling gilded mirror and the six foot long purple couch you're showing me here, but I'm pretty sure once I put all that in my dorm there would be no room for me.
I don't know about you, but there are a million more trequels I'd like to see before having to sit through the saga of Carrie's indecisiveness, Samantha's sexcapades (best part), Charlotte's boring life and Miranda's cynicism. To name a few...
For some reason, fanny packs have made some sort of comeback in the past couple of years. Why these terrible things have gained popularity among people who aren't moms at Disney World is completely over my head, but they're out there and people are wearing them.
If you've lived in a dorm, chances are you've seen (and completely ignored) many-a-dorm hall board. That's because normally they tell you things like what fast food places are the closest, which you could have learned by stepping out the door. However, there is some info that we KNOW our RAs have that could be super useful to those innocent and naive freshmen living on their halls. Unfortunately, RAs are supposed to be mature and trustworthy authority figures who only offer PG words of wisdom.
Australia is a pretty cool place, right? I mean, their accents are sexy and awesome and they have tons of beaches, really cute animals and an amazing music scene. More and more American students are catching on to the allure of the interesting culture coming out of Australia these days and making trips to the land down under.
