Summer used to mean a few things: sleep-away camp, s'mores, arts and crafts, and trying to find a dry Speedo. Unfortunately, for most of us who aren't Michael Phelps, finding a dry Speedo and swimming our lives away won't be very beneficial to our futures. Nor will concocting the perfect s'more, made with the most awesomely browned marshmallow ever. So now, summer means one thing: interning.

Well, Lindsay Lohan is at it again… or is she? Following her DUI in August 2007, Lohan was ordered to attend alcohol education classes weekly. Now, in violation of her probation, it is reported that she has been attending every 21 days instead. A court hearing set for May 20 will determine if she will have to serve jail time because of the violation. The sad part is: this time, she didn’t actually do anything.
My grandma once told me that she had a secret love affair with Elvis Presley during his gyration days of “Jailhouse Rock.” Although the claim was about as real as Heidi Montag’s chest, my grandma made a good point: it was her word against his, and because he is no longer with us, by default, her word prevailed.

BREAKING NEWS. A study done at The University of Maryland shows that students are addicted to social media. ....Wait a second, we needed a study to prove this??
Well, Target is at it again. Now that the not-so-Gaultier line has come and gone, it is Zac Posen’s turn to take over the racks of Target. Posen’s line won’t debut until April 25th in stores, but we got a super special preview of the collection and Zac has certainly hit the target this time (no pun intended).
Its 6:00 A.M. and your day is about to begin. You ignore the fact that its negative four degrees outside as you flip through your closet trying to pick out the perfect dress to go with your new chunky heels that you bought at the Barney's sample sale. Of course you're not going to tell the jealous girl staring at them in class that they were a sample sale find, you'll let her think you went on a 5th avenue shopping spree this weekend.
Thanks to the Snuggie and its family of unnecessary-but-ridiculously-popular-useless-items, get rich quick schemes are appearing everywhere. Potheads in dorm rooms all over the country swear that their invention is the “next big thing” and have no idea how the country has functioned thus far without the “Condomizer 3000” which dispenses condoms 1 at a time like PEZ.
Your boyfriend is in the shower and you venture over to his computer to check your Facebook only to find that he is already logged in. Usually you would just log him out (or so you say) but this time, you can’t help but notice he has been “poked” by an ex-girlfriend. You freeze. You consider your options: sign out and go about your business, or sort through all of his inbox messages to see if there is any other incriminating evidence.
Windows are up, shades are on, legs are tanned (hopefully) and it’s time to whip out the shorts for the summer. But don’t worry, just because your sweats are going in storage doesn’t mean you have to spend your life savings on shorts to beat the heat
