Alright Summer, I’m Ready for College Already

Before I started college I would spend literally weeks fantasizing about summer. The perfect summer camp, summer job, summer fling, summer barbecues (mmmm cole slaw), whatever. Daydreaming about all the fun I was to have in the summer days ahead was the only way I managed to keep my eyes open during those high school classes that miserably lasted through June.

The Cure For Camel Toe and 10 Celebs Who Need It

I wouldn’t exactly say it's a coincidence that these new Camelflage panties came out just as the number of camel toes seems to be rising at an exponential rate. They’re everywhere! At the MTV movie awards, standing next to me on the subway – heck, at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw a few on the soccer field at the World Cup this Saturday.

5 Things That Should Be Outlawed from Dorms

Can you imagine hearing the incessant whimpering of a dog while trying to study in your dorm room? Well, it might not be too unrealistic of a nightmare/dream (depending on your take). An increasing amount of colleges are now permitting dogs in dorm rooms. Although they’re incredibly cute, how gross?!

Who’s Lady Gaga Calling the “Shady King?”

No matter how many crazy hairstyles she does or how many Sesame Street characters she pieces together into an outfit, I can't get enough of Lady Gaga. She's irresistibly intriguing and simultaneously the slightest bit frightening. You just never know what to expect from her next

Muggs, Moobs, Murses… Now Mandles

The Man Candle (or mandle for those guys in the know) is a guy's answer to the lavender/vanilla bean/clean cotton candles we ladies have been burnin' for years.

Study Says Our Generation Isn’t Ready for the Real World

Somehow, the girl who always comes stumbling into your 9 a.m. with uncombed hair and smelling of vodka from the night before turns out to be the only one in the class with an A. Other times, the guy who always cuts class or, if he actually manages to show up, winds up falling asleep is the only one in the class who actually managed to get an internship this summer. Basically, in a nutshell, looks may be quite deceiving.

Out of the Tanning Bed, Into the Vegetable Aisle

Scientists are claiming that incorporating more cantaloupe, apricots, carrots, peppers and spinach into your diet can give your skin a golden glow. In the study, Caucasian volunteers who consumed a diet rich in orange and green fruits and vegetables were said to have even preferred the look of the golden glow effect from the diet to the darker effect from the sun.

Spontaneous Sex: The Best Sex of All

Here's a fun bit of information for all you "sex is way better when it's with the one you love, blah, blah, blah" peeps. Turns out, it's not. And, no, I'm not just saying that. I've got some stats to back it up!

I’d Rather Be Sober Than Put Vodka In My Eye

f you’ve ever dreamed of a vodka IV on those nights where you just can’t seem to throw back that very last much needed shot of Belvedere Popov, some sickos (read: exceptionally inebriated college guys in some dirty, smelly frat basement) have devised a new method of intoxication that comes awfully close.

Snooki’s Taking Over The World

I love when completely undeserving, socially unacceptable, borderline retarded people like Snooki are somehow able to rake in the big bucks for absolutely no reason at all. Good for you! (Actually, if you couldn’t tell by my tone, I absolutely hate it).

The 11 Things We Wish Guys Would Do More Often

Earlier today, while procrastinating on that whole "find a summer job" thing, I came across an article on entitled, “11 Things Men Want You to Do More Often—in Bed and Out. The list is honest and endearing, but there's one major problem: most women don't receive half of these courtesies in return.

Wanna Go To Harvard? Just Lie!

It's a widely accepted fact that many of us do a bit of exaggerating when it comes time to fill out those college applications. Little "white lies" to make ourselves sound just a bit more (how should I put this?) refined. But 23-year-old former Harvard student, Adam Wheeler, took lying on his college and scholarship apps to a whole new level.

College or No College: That is the Question

I think many (myself included) kind of just wind up at college somehow with little thought in advance as to why we’re there in the first place. There’s elementary school, middle school, high school... college is just kind of the next step in the education process. An expectation for some; a requirement for others. The reason why college is so paramount to parents is because they equate four-year degrees with success and large figure salaries to come in the future.

Sex is Out, Celibacy is In

Much like boat shoes, chambray and shortening words, celibacy is now officially trendy. You heard me: celibacy. Trendy. Totes. Lady Gaga and Courtney Love are doing it. Or, well, not doing it, I suppose. But it's not only them. According to a new article in the New York Post, bands of women are going celibate, claiming it makes them happy.

Hating Your Ex is a Great Idea

So apparently trashing your ex after a breakup is in. And no, not just for the pure fun of it (because believe me, it’s one of my many joys in life). But there’s actually scientific proof that shows it might just be necessary in order to move on.
