Shooting the Sh*t with Real World, D.C.

When word spread around GW that The Real World would be filming here, the student body went a little crazy. It's all anyone could talk about. Where would they be living? Where would they be partying? How would we get an invite back to the swanky MTV pad?

I’m Kinda, Sorta OCD

I’m pretty sure I don’t have OCD, but sometimes I really convince myself that I do. And by "sometimes" I mean "every time I watch Obsessed on A&E." Although my habits don’t come nearly as close to those of the people on that show who have to touch the fridge 46 times before they can get some milk, I do have some quirks that make me go hmm…

Your Friend Cheated – Now What?

Okay, so here’s the problem: Alex isn’t just some guy. Alex is the guy with whom your friend is cheating (well this is the second time) on her boyfriend. Bigger problem: you happen to be really good friends with boyfriend boy. Oy.

Be Cool (and Employable) – Stay In School

God, am I lucky to still be in college. And no, I’m not just talking about the amazing carefree, party animal, parent-less lifestyle of mine (life literally does not. get. better). I’m talking about the luxury of not having to deal with the real world in a currently not-so-great world.

What Doesn’t Cause Cancer?!

Cancer. The word alone gives me the heebie jeebies. It's a scary disease that somehow touches all of our lives, especially nowadays when it seems like everything causes this deadly disease. Yes, we already know that smoking causes cancer; even if you ignore the doctors, it literally says so on the pack. And tanning is pretty stupid too. Fine, we get it.

Your Flip Flops Will Kill You

They come in all different colors, styles, and sizes. They’re a part of our daily uniform during the summertime (Editor's Note: And if you're me, they stay in rotation until the snow begins to fall); we wear them to the beach, to work, or when we’re just hangin' out in the house. Some people may hate on flip flops, but they are truly god's gift to mankind (after Channing Tatum and Coldstone Creamery, of course).

Keep The Nasty To Yourself, Please

You wanna express your love with your man? Fine, but keep it in the bedroom. No one needs to see you shoving your tongue down his throat (or your hand down his pants) when they're going about their daily business. And you know what else we don't want to see? You shoving your hand down your own pants to adjust those boy shorts that keep creeping up your crack.

Ashley Greene: Another Hollywood Moron Sends Nakey Pics [Poll]

Obviously no one learned their lesson from Paris Hilton (or Kim Kardashian, Leighton Meester, Screech, etc...). and clearly Vanessa Hudgens' nude body all over the internet didn’t quite send the don’t-take-nude-pictures message either, because twilight star Ashley Greene has some not-so-PG photos circulating the world wide web.

Are You A Facebook Stalker? Your Secret Isn’t Safe Anymore!

My day started off bad enough with ultra frizzy hair and sweat in every crack, crevice and fold on my body (thank you, hot and hazy NYC summer!). I didn't think it could get much worse than swamp ass, but it did. Oh boy did it get worse. Upon signing online for my morning FB stalk sesh I learned that Facebook has added a new application: The Stalker Check app.

Fit Finds: Core Over Crunch

So you’re determined to get those rock-hard, washboard, Jessica Alba abs. And you even stepped up the intensity of your workout by increasing those crunches and sit-ups to ensure that your stomach is flat in no time. Well, its time to stop that. Right now.

I See London, I See Paris (Not France)

She’s got her own show, album, book, sex tape…the list goes on. And now Paris Hilton, the infamous model, celebrity (what the heck do you even call her) has her own documentary, "Paris, not France" set to premiere tonight on MTV.

Quidditch: Coming to a Campus Near You

Clearly the fact that there have been six Harry Potter movies released, (two more in the making) seven books out in stores, and an upcoming theme park in Orlando, doesn’t quite express the extent of society’s obsession with the magic wizardly world. Because college Quidditch (yes, the broomstick-riding sport) is on the rise.

Chris Brown Apologizes… For What, Exactly?

It’s never too late to say sorry, according to Chris Brown that is. Five months later after the “incident” between he and Rihanna he has finally made a public announcement apologizing for “what occurred.”

Thank God I’m A Woman

Being a woman ain’t easy. Between monthly periods and mood swings, adapting to high heels, and - umm - we’re the ones who have to go through childbirth, there are definitely some difficult things that we have to endure. Nonetheless, there are so many other, bigger and better reasons that I’m still saying, “TGIAW!”

Jennifer Aniston has definitely dated her fair share of men. Between hot stuff Brad, hilarious Vince and singer John, the boyfriend list is very diverse and goes on for quite a while. Of course, she has been rumored to date more people that have actually been confirmed, but photos do not lie.
