Happy fall, everybody! After months of sun and sweat, it’s finally time to enjoy good TV and cozy autumnal fashion—or not. The weather is perfect: it’s warm enough to work out outdoors, if you’re into that kind of thing, but cool enough to make getting close to a special someone—meaning someone who can take direction—even more appealing…
My top contender for Halloween costume this year is “The Swine Flu.” Who knew dressing up as a pig could be so dangerous? But in all seriousness, swine flu is still among us, and no matter what your college is doing to protect you (read: installing bottles of antibacterial everywhere), we must protect ourselves.
Okay, so I don’t know about all of you but I am pretty worried about getting sick at this school year. Here at SU, school officials are predicting that half of the students will probably get some form of the flu. And that includes the Swine variety. Yikes! If you’re anything like me you’re probably a little worried (Read: freaking out and considering becoming a hermit).
Your slate is clean (and your pants still fit!), so let this new school year be your opportunity to start fresh and make good, healthy choices. It's always good to start out with goals you actually will end up completing, so here are some small, completely doable changes for you to consider so that this year finds you healthier and even more fabulous than the last!
Labor Day may be an awesome third day to a typically-too-short weekend, but sadly, it’s also pretty much the last day of summer. But just because those summer days are drifting away, does that mean the fun is o-v-e-r? Not for CollegeCandy readers! Psh, we can have fun no matter where we are and September is just brimming with some awesome stuff to take part in.
While sliding down frozen mountainsides is somewhat adventurous, nothing compares to the college Ice Luge. 6 feet tall, carved into the shape of your school mascot, fraternity letters, or just a giant wedge, the ice luge will leave you liquored up and slightly frostbitten around your mouth and nose.
If you thought we were out of the woods with swine flu when summer began, you’re sadly mistaken. Health officials predict that come the fall, the H1N1 virus will begin to spread once again. Residential colleges are expected to be hit particularly hard, as dorms make the perfect breeding grounds for the spread of illness.
It's been an interesting week. Now that we're in the thick of summer, we're starting to look ahead to the...fall? What? Despite my resistance to any and all cool weather thoughts at this time, they are here.
If you were anywhere near a public place this last spring, you probably were caught up in the swine flu mania. Maybe you washed your hands obsessively or carried hand-sanitizer around with you everywhere. Perhaps you even bought a surgical mask and pulled a Speidi.
Recently, CollegeCandy ran a post asking if our generation can really "have it all." What we got back were some accounts of people trying to stuff as much as they could into their lives and hoping they could carry the weight for as long possible. Sound unhealthy? Yes, and we all know it, even if we're doing it too (and who isn't?).
Until about 5 minutes ago, I thought Cinco De Mayo was a holiday to celebrate the invention of the pinata. Or tequila. Or those make-you-wanna-kill-yourself hangovers that only come from a full day of drinking tequila. What? That's pretty much what the holiday means to most college students, right?
It's been a tough week, but we survived it without catching the swine flu! That's probably because we used that pandemic as the perfect excuse to skip class and spend the day doing more productive things (and avoiding strangers' sneezes): we learned som new make up techniques, hit up Forever 21, and watched lots of TV.
Swine flu, the rapidly-spreading illness making headlines across the globe, is probably Mexico's least popular export at the moment. But let's talk about my faaaavorite producto de Mexico, Gael Garciá Bernal, whose new film The Limits of Control opens today. Yeow!
