Web Spy: WakeupDialer.com

I’m a ridiculously sound sleeper (seriously, I’ve slept through earthquakes), which makes it really difficult for me to get up in the morning. When I first went away to college and I didn’t have my parents or sister to yell at me to get up when I hit the snooze button for a third time, I realized how big of a problem this could be.

Web Spy: ReQall

How familiar does this scenario sound to you? You're driving in your car or walking to class when you suddenly get a great idea or remember you have to do something...but by the time you get a chance to write it down, you've already forgotten it. Or maybe you simply forgot to write down an assignment right when it was assigned...and then forget to turn it in.

Sign Off and Get Some Shut Eye!

It’s no secret that we live in a technology-obsessed age. Smart phones dominate our lives, laptops are constantly...on our laps, and a few hours sans wireless scares us more than the recession. Although they’ve all made life undeniably cushy, they’ve also impinged upon a practice that is absolutely essential for our mental and physical health

Summer Job Got You Down? We’ve Got 7 Easy Ways to Lift Those Spirits!

Even though summer should be all about relaxing and enjoying the sun, many of us are so busy with our own internships and work that we often forget to take care of ourselves. And even when we do, pampering on a budget seems almost impossible. (Um, hello $65, one-time facial). Pretty soon we're pasty, tired and moody to boot.

Web Spy: Soshiku

A few years ago, Andrew Schaper was a high school student with the same organization problems I have. In order to solve these problems, he created Soshiku, a website that helps you manage and keep track of all your school assignments.

Our Lives Are Duuuurty: Five Things Dirtier Than a Toilet Seat

Despite the fact that I ran around for weeks downing Airbourne and bathing myself in hand sanitizer, I couldn’t outrun the flu and it currently has me severely down and out (don’t worry I’m not about to sprout a curly tail over here, it’s just our regular old seasonal pal).

Hot Accessories for a Cold Winter

This fall weather is quickly beginning to feel a lot like winter. Sweaters and tights are being traded in for winter fleeces and long-johns. You may think you're good to go with your new crochet Uggs and long, puffy North Face jacket, but there's a lot more out there this winter when it comes to accessories.

Campus Couture: Keepin’-It-Comfy Meagan

I’ve known Meagan since elementary school, and she’s always been one of the happiest people I know (she’s a cheerleader so she has to be, I guess). Her clothing choices are always full of color and spunk, and she is the definition of cute: a tiny body with a big personality that shines through her outfits.

An Open Letter To Obnoxious Texters

Dear Obnoxious Phone Users of the World: While I will never deny that my cell phone has allowed me the opportunity to amuse myself during a boring class, I understand that there is a time and a place for texting.

Is There an iPhone App For That?

Even with all the apps already available, most notably the ones that make you fat, there are still things that we wish the iPhone could do for us. Like laundry. Or take the garbage out. Too bad Apple hasn't come out with some sort of external thumb feature...

Overheard: Big Piece of Lame

(Guy, talking on the phone.) Guy: I have the best story. Dude, it's crazy. So I was in the darkroom, and this girl was developing... like, these naked pictures, right? And they looked kinda like her. So I went over, and... I asked her, "hey, is that you?" And she was like "yeah". Geez. Best day of my life.

Miss Manners: “Can I Have Yo Numba?”

I’m sure every sexy CC reader has gotten the awkward “Can I have yo numba?” from a not so appealing guy. While some of you are fine with flat out saying “No,” I’m looking to all the other ladies who decide to give up their numbers (or more...) “just to be polite.”

Technology Makes Me Hate People

I'm addicted to technology. If I'm not at my computer something is very, very wrong with me then I'm checking my Facebook/email/Twitter/stock updates on my iPhone. I text when I drive, when I work, and even when I'm in the same house as my roommates. I can't even fight with a friend face to face anymore.
