No reason to stay is enough reason to go.

Stop searching for reasons to stay, and go. Stop making excuses as to why you can't, and do. Sure most of us weren't born with the means to jump on a plane and see the world in one fell swoop, but the worst thing you can be is content. Too often do we find ourselves so overcome with routine that we neglect to realize we have the option to explore. Your soul mate may be at a cafe in Brussels,…

18 Rules of Friendship.

Even the most basic of bitches know to tell their friend they shouldn't wear a denim skirt in public, not to bang their friend's ex, and to <3 their bestie's Instagram post right away, but realistically that isn’t what makes a best friend. In order to avoid being the #friendeveryonesecretlyhates my friends and I have come up with a list that should guide you in the right direction. 1.) "Take one for the team". If your friend asks you to talk to…

YOUR ADHD BFF: HOW TO FOCUS DURING FINALS

Like many of you I was fortunate enough to be diagnosed with ADHD prior to my arrival at college. There are a number of benefits to my condition, including a massive supply of adderall each month that would go for about $300 on the black market (or the freshman dorm halls.) However, despite my pharmaceutical advantages-- I still find myself perusing Buzzfeed, Facebook, etc when I should be doing more important things, such as anything else in the world. Here…

How to know you were a scene queen in 2007

In 2007 the scene-scene was all the rage, how HXC were you? [caption id="attachment_3707" align="aligncenter" width="332"] My sister Taylor in her glory days[/caption] Lets set the mood: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCyGvGEtOwc] 1.) You've made out with a boy with a lip-ring, and it was awesome. 2.) You were all about plastic jewelry, over-sized plastic pearls were all the rage. 3.) You either had gauged ears or wanted them. 4.)

Why YOU need to go to Indonesia!

I know as a study abroad student I'm pretty much obligated to write about what I experience abroad. However, I realized early on that nobody cared what I did they just want inspiration for what they will someday do. I spent 2 weeks in Indonesia in December..... and this is why you should do the same. 1.) Eat like a king/queen for next to nothing. A gourmet dinner + a beer or a glass of wine in Bali will cost you…

Out with the Skeleton.

[caption id="attachment_3261" align="alignnone" width="504"] Photography used with permission by Allison Gray of Go Gray Productions[/caption]   Everyday I workout next to the same woman, on the same elliptical. Over the semester I have watched her shrink. She started off the semester stick thin, perhaps the type to model. Now she is little more than a skeleton. There is neither an excess of muscle nor visible fat on her body. Everyday when I visit the gym, no matter what time of…

What I learned working 5 months in the hospitality industry.

This past march I accepted the glamorous job as a "front desk agent" at a "premiere hotel" in Boston. While the price was right (higher than anything else I could manage in college), the job itself was something I could only imagine in my wildest.... nightmares. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of great things about working in the hospitality industry, the pay is really good, you get to meet some really cool/interesting people, and you ALWAYS, ALWAYS…

Justin Beiber's Instagram makes him completely unlikable.

I have defended Justin Beiber for years. When people claimed he was the next Aaron Carter, I stood up for him, said he had a lot of talent. When he cut his bowl cut, I stood by him, said he looked cute. Worst decision of my life: following Justin Beiber on instagram. He has made himself completely unlikable, and here is why...   Images found here: http://instagram.com/justinbieber# 1.) Justin had his publicist take this picture of him and Selena to…

Miley Cyrus's shorts drawing more attention than her next album.

The past couple of days Miley Cyrus has created quite a bit of controvery. No, it isn't over explicit lyrics in her upcoming album. Instead, the media is all over her about the length of her shorts. Well, as a Miley fan, and as a female, I have some things I'd like to say regarding this issue. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/22/miley-cyrus-short-shorts-too-far_n_3133762.html 1.) Miley Cyrus has said on a number of occasions that she attends Pilates classes 6-7 days a week. I'd like to…
