If you’re a college student, you’re probably done with your spring semester classes. It’s officially summer and you don’t have...
Next time you're in a classroom, look around. You'll notice that there are very, very few people who always sit with perfect posture. Especially students. We spend such long hours sitting in class and studying that it's really tempting to slump. I know I do. So for this week's workout, I've put together a few exercises that will engage the muscles in your core and back that contribute to your posture.
When I began my freshman year of college, I was overwhelmed to say the least. I was overwhelmed from meeting so many new people, overwhelmed by how sinfully delicious the late night food scene was, and overwhelmed by the workload. All of the sudden, I was getting numerous weeknight texts from people about amazing parties.
There was an interesting article posted on the HuffPo detaling SeekingArrangements.com, a website pairing "sugar daddies" with "sugar babies." The sugar babies are overwhelmingly college aged women and recent graduates saddled with a variety of financial obligations, and the sugar daddies are your typical wealthy older men who have a fixation with women young enough to be their granddaughters.
Right before I sat down to write this I opened a letter (yes because apparently people still send those) informing me that come April I will be able to pick up my cap and gown. I looked at the letter, rolled my eyes, and thought April? Really? Why are they sending me this now when I don’t need to pick it up until April? But still I opened up my Google Calendar and went to plug in the date. But oh wait…what’s that?
I love the first week back after Thanksgiving break. No scratch that, I hate it, actually. But what I do like is what that week represents. It’s the beginning of the end.
It's Thanksgiving week. You know what that means: more food than you’ll ever be able to eat, run ins with family members you'd really rather avoid and those awkward moments when everyone gathers together to say what they’re thankful for.
• Gap year lessons • Best foods to eat before an exam • The ultimate school playlist • Emma Watson talks about life at a (non-magical) school • Why can't this girl get here work done? • Plan ahead to avoid the post-Thanksgiving crunch
In elementary school all that was required of us to get decent grades was coloring inside the lines. Middle school and high school introduced to the word “studying” and, soon after, a genuine dislike for the word. But college is where the work is no joke. The classes are hard. The workload is heavy. And the social scene is exploding. So how does a college girl stay on top of it all?
Apparently ridiculous college courses are the new trend on campuses all over the world. I’d go so far as to call them “unnecessary,” but the 440 people who just enrolled in Potsdam University’s e-mail flirtation class would beat down my door (or fill my inbox...) in disagreement. Yes, you read that right- one German university is actually offering a master’s course on how to flirt via modern technology.
While we may not like all of them, rules exist for a reason. They keep us safe, they keep us sane, they keep some sort of order in this world of ours. And that applies to college campuses, too. There are all sorts of rules that we live by: no food in the library, no drinking in the dorms, no sex in the stacks.
(Girl, bringing a drink back to a table.) Guy: Whad'ya get? Girl: It's a gimlet. Guy: Oh. We usually freeze those. Or put them in the gravy.
Today is Good Friday and it is a Good Friday indeed. The sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and I've got a whole lot of Real Housewives and The Soup on my DVR just begging to be watched. In honor of the holiday (and the fact that the sun is putting me in a fantabulous mood!), I thought I'd have the CollegeCandy writers share what makes a Good Friday for them.
