This Post Grad Life: Things I Can't Handle Like a Champ

College was a large Biodome for easy mistakes, debauchery, learning and living. And now that I've been out of college for a while, a few things have become irresistibly harder to accomplish without this grand ol' biodome of easy living. I've dealt with the following combo platter of difficulties in the real world, and in every situation I contemplated ripping my hair out.

Google + and 4 Other New Tech-y Things You'll Love

In 2004 when Facebook was just starting to quietly kill a few Myspace accounts, Google offered to buy it, but was turned down. Their first social networking site, Google Wave, was basically a fail. Fast forward to 2007 when Google decided to try to convince Mark that selling out was the way to go. This rejection was the birth of Google +: the social networking site no one ever saw coming.

Although we upload our pictures to Flickr and Facebook all the time or write about our weekend experiences in personal blogs, there could be a possible downside to all of this internet exposure?

We’ve All Been There: The Drunken Email

The boy you love just broke your heart, so your girlfriends decide that drinking is in order. Because nothing numbs the pain quite like a few shots of SoCo. Together with your roommates, you pick out a super hot outfit (consisting of some combination of low cut top/push up bra), take a few pre-gaming shots and head out the door to either “show him what he’s missing,” or “forget about that prick.”

CollegeCandy’s Guide to On-Campus Jobs

Going to college is so much more than hauling your butt out of bed before noon on a Friday to sit in the back of a lecture hall and attempt the daily Sudoku. In order to even be considered for a job in this economy, students are expected to pull great grades, take on multiple leadership roles on campus and still manage to avoid going completely broke (not to mention swing awesome summer internships).
