The Weekly Ten: Celeb Body Parts I Covet

I am pretty happy with myself. It took three torturous middle school years and four years of high school full of insecurity to get me to the point where I actually like who I am and how I look (most days). But sometimes I see certain celebs, and I think, "I would kill for her (insert body part here)."

The Weekly Ten: How to Spend Presidents’ Day

While many of you may not have to go to class today, I do have to go to class. Why do I have to go to class on Mr. Washington's birthday? Because my school obviously hates presidents, duh. But for those of you who have the day off, I have compiled a list of presdential themed things you can do today.

Whether you are on the singles team or the relationship team, there are plenty of things to love about February 14. So stop dreading leaving your apartment or dorm on Tuesday if you hate seeing everyone wearing red and smiling, and if you're in a relationship, try to appreciate these OTHER parts of V-Day along with appreciating your significant other.

The Weekly Ten: Laugh a Little

I bought a day-by-day calendar all about being assertive and basically saying "No, thank you" more (but without the 'thank you' part). And by "assertive," I mean it's filled with hysterical quotes about how it's okay to be super-bitchy, because we all have those day/moments/weeks/lifetimes...when we need to insert an extra NO! into one thing or another.

The Weekly Ten: Summer Fever

As a New Englander you would think I would be one of the many supporters of winter. After all, I used to figure skate and bring my inner tube to the Seven Hills, but somewhere (I blame junior year of college; not sure why) I turned. Maybe it was when I fell in love with all the wonderful things summer had to offer, maybe it was when winter started taking over half of the year.

The Weekly Ten: Best Movies for a Snugglefest

I know a thing or two about snuggling, mostly learned from John Stamos...but I digress. There is nothing more complimentary to a good snuggle then a great movie. So here are some movies that will have you jonesin' for another snow storm...

The Weekly Ten: Best Warm Winter Drinks

As someone with a strong addiction to anything hot and caffeinated (*cough* Ryan Gosling sipping coffee in his ch√Ęteau *cough*), I'm positive I have found the best combination of drinks to not only warm your hands, toes...all extremities, but also one that will make you feel cozy inside.

The Weekly Ten: Last Minute Gift Ideas

I love giving presents. I love the face people make when opening up the specifically picked gift, hearing the sounds of the wrapping paper tearing. I love the hugs and thank yous, the 'Oh my god! You totally shouldn't have (but I'm secretly really really glad you did)'s. However, I hate the process you need to take to get there.

The Weekly Ten: Reasons I HATE Snow

As a December baby (December 28th to be exact, yes I do now expect you to send me lots of presents) you would think I would be a fan of snow, or at least of winter. But I am not, and I will tell you why.

The Weekly Ten: Reasons Why I Don’t Want Kids

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but I'm currently a nanny to an adorable (when sleeping) four-month old baby boy. Before taking this job, two and half months ago, I thought I wanted kids. I now realize I do not want kids, at least not for a really really (huge emphasis on really here) long time.

The Weekly Ten: When Reality TV Was Amazing

Oh reality TV, how you have gotten me through many a rough patch in my life, many a break up, many a late night binge fest...really any low point in my life. I've been with you since the first Real World appeared on MTV, to the horrible escapades of a young Jessica Simpson, I've seen it all.

The Weekly Ten: Give Thanks

The food, the family, the parade, the mark of the beginning of Christmas...really what more could anyone ask for? But with all of these amazing things around us (and the promise of half-price shoes the next day) we sometimes forget what Thanksgiving is all about.

The Weekly Ten: My Christmas List

I am fully aware that Christmas isn't for another 4,394,668 seconds, but since every other store in the world is getting ready I figured I should start to compile my wish list. You know, in case anyone wants to buy me something other than socks. Grandma, I'm looking at you!

The Weekly Ten: Happy Halloween

As mentioned in previous posts, I love Halloween and everything about it. From being scared straight, to mocking the horrible fake blood in haunted houses, it's the most magical time of the year. Plus, it's the one time of year I can watch Halloweentown multiple times a day (which is exactly what I plan on doing today...judgement free zone).

The Weekly Ten: Love Yourself!

I know you are probably sick of CollegeCandy writers telling you to hop on the self lovin' train (not in the masturbation sense), but I'm having a week of self-hate, so you're just going to have to grin and bear one more person telling you that you are awesome. Think you can deal?

The Weekly Ten: My Hipster Halloween

My original plan, for this year, was to be Ruth from "Hey Arnold." It fits my obscure rule: The more times I can scoff and say "What, you don't know who I am?" the better. And when I find someone who does know who I am...well, we become best friends for the night. Then I found a pretty dress so I'm being a fairy...I know. So as inspiration for the rest of you go-all-outters for Halloween here are my ten favorite dorky-hipster-internet themed costumes.

The Weekly Ten: Things College Students Take For Granted

Needless to say there are very few things I wouldn't be willing to part with in order to get back the comfy dorm room living I've grown accustomed too. So here are some things you should be thankful for having while living away from home...

The Weekly Ten: How to Stay Healthy

It's the time during school when the coughs starts, the sniffles rule the class room, and sweatpants seem to be in short supply at the book store. With changing seasons often comes the first cold of the semester. This is the one time living at home has its benefit, and where living in the dorms makes you a sitting duck for disease.
