My TA Was a Creepster

With the start of a new quarter comes the excitement of new classes and a new schedule. And new TAs. While my friends are frantically researching classes that both fill their requirements and leave Friday open, I'm zoning out at my desk dreaming (and praying) about a tall, handsome, smart, romantic, witty discussion leader.

Coupled. In Class

Back when Matt and I were first dating freshman year, it came time for us to register for our next semester's classes. He and I both wanted to take Japanese as our foreign language, but agreed that it'd be better off if we took it at different times. He thought I'd be a distraction, and I didn't want to compete with him over grades.

College Q&A: Do I Really Have to Go To Lecture?

OK, so I have a 8am lecture 3 days a week next semester. Even better, it’s a requirement which I DO NOT want to take. There are apparently over 200 people in the class, the prof puts the notes online, he’s apparently horribly boring and I really don’t feel like getting up at 7 to go. Especially since my next class isn’t until 2pm. Annoying.

Would You Rather…[POLL]

Would you rather have to go about college life normally for a day except that you're naked or retake all of the tests you took in your worst class (without having any time to study) because your Prof lost the grades?

(Two guys at a giant party.) Guy 1: What? The cops are coming now? Guy 2: Yo, don't touch my ass, bro. Guy 1: I'll touch your ass. I'll touch your ass as much as I want.

Overheard: The Story on the Street

(Girl and guy, yelling in a noisy gym.) Girl: Woman climbers usually use their legs more, since they don't have the same arm strength. Guy: Yeah. Oh, I get it. You guys always need to be tied up. Girl: Excuse me? Guy: Sorry, I'm not sure what you said.

I’m Torn: Summer School

Ahhh, summer. The sweet, glorious days of summer. Days spent lounging by the pool, building sandcastles at the beach, or lying in bed all day watching old episodes of The OC on Soap Net. School's finally out, and since the last long vacation you had was winter break, you're ready for some of mom's home cooking and not getting up from your bed. Ever.

Money Matters: Smart Splurges in Celebration of Your Tax Refund

Overall, this is sad, but in a couple of weeks I'll be getting nearly a G in tax returns. Yeah, that's a crapload of money. But when I look back at all the hours I worked in 2008, it also makes me realize... I made jack sh*t.

Day-to-Night Styler: From Casual Cool to Casual Chic

We all live busy lives; we go to school or work (or sometimes both), we try to keep our lives in order and, on top of everything else, we try to maintain a social life. It can all be a bit overwhelming at times, especially when you're running here, there and everywhere, and in the process of it all, still trying to look cute.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: What Makes a Good Friday?

In honor of the goodness of Good Friday, I decided to make this Friday extra special and do everything to make sure it was good: I ate a donut for breakfast (good), I put real cream instead of skim milk in my coffee (good), I never got out of my PJs (good), and I'm hoping to watch the entire first season of The Hills on DVD (very good).
