Birthday Faves: One Very Awesome Reason We Salute You, Khadijah Williams

I want to share with you all the story of Khadijah Williams, a freshman at Harvard University who proves that a woman, no matter where she's from or what means she has access to, can achieve anything with the right amount of determination.

Bikinis Are Out, One-Pieces are In!

One-pieces are totally in this summer, which has us happy as a clam since the past few weeks of finals have left no time for the gym and a lot of time for late-night food deliveries. For the first time since middle school we can actually feel sexy and trendy rockin' something at the pool that isn't a bikini (and doesn't give us uni-boob like a Speedo!).

When It Comes To Dating, Everyone’s Playing The Game

Most girls, when asked, will deny playing games when it comes to dating. We complain that guys are players and that we're the innocent victims. But being more than a few years (and ice cream binges, and drunken cry sessions) into the dating world, I'm beginning to wonder....is dating itself just one big game, and are we all players?

Drinking: A Love/Hate Relationship

There's so much I love about drinking: it helps me forget about stress and schoolwork, it makes everything that happens so much funnier, and it's fun to do outside when it's nice out. (...and inside when it's crappy out. And in the morning. And in the night. And on Mondays.) And those crappy Black Eyed Peas songs you usually can't stand? Total fist pumpers! Not to mention the hilarious piecing together that happens the morning after.

8 Things You Should Never Say to a College Senior

As I sit elbow-deep in final papers, projects and exams that are all due within the next week, saying I'm counting down the seconds until the end of the semester is the understatement of the year. No. Of the century. But if I relayed that fact to my senior friends that are actually graduating in a couple of weeks, they'd smack me.

Girls’ Away Messages [VIDEO]

When my friend first sent me this video, I thought it was just a bunch of Jersey Shore wannabes trying to make it big on the Interwebs. But then I watched it (3 times) and couldn't stop laughing. Even though it is totally making fun of us ladies, it's hilariously accurate! And just watching three juice heads with some serious brows acting like obnoxious Facebook updaters is funny.

A Tip of the Hat to Duke’s, Cathy Davidson

Whose lunatic idea was it to throw National Teacher Day in May, when finals are looming and we're more stressed out than Kanye when he pulled the mic from T-Swift!?

Summer Break Is Almost Here – Yay?

Spring semester is winding down, and when we're stuck in the library for 24 hours at a time with our eyes glued to a textbook and an energy drink surgically attached to our hands, it's easy to count down to seconds until summer vacation. But as we all know, life back at home can be a drag an adjustment.

Facebook Is Ruining Everything

Facebook is the hallmark of our generation. It's usually a good way to see what your friends (or acquaintances, or enemies...) are up to and a good way to kill some time. But the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that this social networking tool is actually ruining our lives and dramatically changing the way we stalk communicate...for the worse.

3 Surprising Ways to De-stress

April is Stress Awareness Month, and I don't know about you guys, but I am definitely aware of my stress. Research papers, projects, and exams are rolling in faster than ever before and it seems like I can't finish one thing without getting behind on another.

CollegeCandy’s Guide To Selling Those Books

Campus bookstores suck. They convince you that you need to buy a textbook for $150, and you'll crack it open on that one day you were bored feeling studious, before realizing your exams are straight from the class notes/Powerpoint slides and you don't even need that 10 pound eyesore in the first place.

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service? Not For The Situation

Dear "The Situation" (if that's even your real name), You have nice abs. We get it. But don't you think maybe it's time to put a shirt on? At the beach on the Jersey Shore, it's okay. But at the gym when you're all sweaty, it's unsanitary

How Far Would You Go To Get Rid of a Zit?

There's almost nothing worse than waking up in the morning and discovering a big, fat zit in the middle of your forehead. And it always seems to happen the day of sorority formal/a new ID photo/a presentation/any random Tuesday when you pass your crush on the way to class.

Don’t Blow That Tax Refund

Happy Tax Day! I know it's not the best day for those of you who have to hand your hard-earned money over to the government (perhaps a free donut will help?), but some of you might be lucky enough to be getting some cash back. Hooray! If you're anything like me, you were so excited at the prospect of having a positive number in your bank account that you started spending that money before you even got it.

The 5 Douchiest Ways to Dump Someone

Ah, getting dumped- we've all been there, and it's not pretty. Whether it was a long-term, serious relationship or a fling in which the end was inevitable, getting broken up with sucks. A lot. But even more pathetic than the subsequent week spent downing ice cream, getting incoherently drunk off boxed wine, and sobbing to your friends is the way in which some dudes choose to perform the dumping.

Abercrombie & Fitch Is The Worst Place on Earth

When I was 16, I needed an easy job that could fund my many expenses (like the two beers that got me drunk on the weekends and movie tickets for 7pm on Fridays). The mall was an obvious choice, since I'd always have someone to hang with on breaks (the place employed my entire high school) and I'd have a sweet employee discount.

Snooki’s Worth Her Weight in Gold(schlager)

LiLo's fallen and she's fallen hard. First her acting career, then her love life, and now her popularity. While she hasn't had a real movie since Mean Girls and, as such, no real income, Lindsay has been bar hopping to score some cash. But even that isn't bringing in the dough anymore. In fact, it is rumored that Snooki is now making more per appearance than Ms. Lohan herself.
