Weekly Wrap Up: It’s a Hot Mess Up In Here

You know what's cool? Pit stains. Or not. But thanks to the summer sun, I've got 'em and I have a feeling they'll be sticking around until September. That oughta be good for my social life.

Weekly Wrap Up: Mama Wants a Margarita

Wow, what a week! If it weren't for the Fraps-your-way at Starbucks, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have made it out alive. But after a long week full of long-ass lines to get the new iPhone, extreme heat, long hours at the summer job and getting this shocking/disturbing nugget of info, I survived.

Weekly Wrap Up: Operation Stress Mode

This time of year is so stressful. I'm so stressed out, I'm stressing about all of the TV shows I have to try and DVR every day. Job interviews are flooding my planner (yay), senior thesis papers are suffocating my existence, and trying to wiggle time to party with my closest friends before graduation is like trying to fit a fat man in a small jacket (nearly impossible).

Weekly Wrap Up: It Was a Good Week

Well, the week is finally over, and what a week it was. Where do I even begin? Obviously with the amazeballs Glee Madonna episode. Sue Sylvester is seriously my hero. Then we found this video of 'Things I Hate' that made me laugh until my face hurt more than after prom pictures. It was also 4/20 and Earth Day, and I killed two birds with one stone by chowing down on Sunchips.

Weekly Wrap Up: Senior Slide

The final weeks of my entire college career are wrapping themselves up quickly. Wasn't it just yesterday when I was sitting in my first boys dorm room, trying to decide what I was going to do with all of these brand new opportunities? Wasn't it just yesterday when I was eating Cheez-its for dinner, and pulling my first all nighter? Wasn't it just yesterday when I slapped my first bag?

Weekly Wrap Up: I Can’t Stop Watching The Olympics

I don't know about you, but I could not stop watching the thrill of moguls, downhill skiing, and the hockey hunks tear it up over the ice this week. Something about the Olympics just brings me back to when I wanted to be Kristi Yamaguchi (but not Tonya Harding).

Weekly Wrap Up: January Signs Off

My favorite combination of four letters is finally here: TGIF. Whether you were finishing up your first week of school, or applying for internships, this week was a productive one for all of us. And so was this month! Is January really almost catapulting us into February? The month was especially productive for the fist pumping guidos of Jersey Shore, as the cost per fist pump sky rocketed.

Weekly Wrap Up: 2010 Makes Me Tired

Whew. We have all officially survived the first week of 2010. And if the rest of the year is going to be anything like the past 8 days, I think I'm in for some serious trouble. After a whirlwind New Year's weekend chock full of drinking, celebrating, and more drinking, it took me until yesterday (true story) to get back to normal. I was so tired and out of it all week that I already blew through my Caribou Coffee gift card that I got for Hanukkah.

Weekly Wrap Up: No Boys Allowed

Oh, boys—can’t live with them, can’t live without them. First he’s joining you for a romantic snowball fight or making you a thoughtful, handmade gift, then he’s holding your sexy pictures hostage and updating his Facebook status on your wedding day.

The Weekly Wrap Up: Tis the Season… Already

Thanksgiving has been over for less than 24 hours, which means that the world is already in full-fledged holiday season mode. The advent of The Season brings with it all kinds of things, some positive and some negative: major deals and awkward run-ins with high school friends, feelings of gratitude and feelings of Grinchiness, holiday nookie and so on.

Weekly Wrap Up: Thank You, World

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. That means you’ve got six days to hit the gym and eat healthfully in an attempt to make up for the massive amounts of fat, sugar and tryptophan about to hit your bloodstream. (Unless you’re currently single, in which case you’re probably mainlining cake frosting at this very moment.) I’m getting sleepy just thinking about it.

Weekly Wrap Up: Friday The 13th Has Us All In a Tizzy

It’s Friday the 13th, and even though I’m not particularly superstitious—I’ve stepped on many a crack in my day, and my mother’s back is still working just fine—I do feel a little uneasy. That’s mostly because, as my main man Tim Gunn might say, I’m concerned about a lot of things right now.

Weekly Wrap Up: Helloooo, November!

Oh, sweet November—overnight, Starbucks has switched to holiday cups, Christmas-themed commercials are beginning to air, and I’m starting to get a serious hankering for turkey. I can’t wait to get a spiffy new pair of mittens—maybe designed by Lady Gaga?—and enjoy my last winter in college.

Weekly Wrap Up: Pass The Wine

As the week comes to a close, I am overflowing with pressing questions. Why is it 75 degrees on the east coast halfway through October? What the hell am I going to be for Halloween? How long is it going to take for this milkshake obsession to catch up with my thighs? I’ll find solace in knowing I’m not the only one asking away.

Weekly Wrap Up: Midterm Season Blows

When will it stop raining? Who is balloon boy and why should I care about him? And I’m not the only one asking questions. Take a look at some of the burning queries that have been occupying CC writers for the past week:
