It’s true what they say,
we always hurt the ones we love
and love the ones who hurt us.
We can quote Bukowski as much as we want,
but we need to realize the severity of his words.
“Find what you love and let it kill you.”
Love is a death sentence.
It is a sweet one, but in love’s very…
My professor’s face when he wrote our exam. Probably.
Well it’s finals week…
I haven’t posted in a while, but I figured it would be worth it. The only thing this finals week has taught me is that I probably should have taken better notes (The day my prof gave us our take home final for an open book/open note test, she deleted all of her lecture notes from the internet. Yes, really.) and that if I want to be a writer in any capacity, I should probably start like…NOW. (Though if we’re being honest, I should probably use that enthusiasm for the five papers due next week.)
Life right now feels like the Olympics to me, you know? It’s that scenario where you’re sitting on the couch and you see someone who’s sixteen just nail a triple axel/quadruple loop combo while eating a cheeseburger and promoting literacy in Africa and you wonder if you’re barely skating by at the age of twenty because you’re not out there doing dead lifts or saving the world. Am I crazy?

Is it sad that this may or may not have just made my day?
WHEN I GET CLOSE TO TELLING MY ROOMMATE THAT HER HABITS BOTHER ME
So I should explain that my roommates and I have given up swearing for the next six months. As we are college students, we need to save our precious quarters for things like laundry. As follows, here is our punishment system for slipping up:
- P*ssed= 1 push up (we were iffy on whether or not this was a curse)
- Sh*t = 1 cent
- A**, b*tch = 3 cents
- f-bomb = 5 cents
- c-word = 10 cents (This word does not come up unless Bridesmaids is quoted.)
We are by no means liberal swearers, but we liked having a challenge. So far we have amassed 22 cents since last Friday.
So internet community, I challenge you to hold yourself accountable for your language - not necessarily your curse words (because I honestly don’t think they’re bad) but for fillers like um, uh, and like.
I have a professor whose sentences are peppered with UM, and UH. I stopped counting at 67 total and we were only 15 minutes into the class.
As a disclaimer, I advocate legally drinking at the appropriate drinking age.
As I sat down with my boyfriend and roommate, we decided to watch Bridesmaids. Now, as you have probably learned sometime in your collegiate years, a drinking game can be made out of anything. Before watching the movie, we looked up the Bridesmaids drinking game. We found about three results for such a search and they didn’t quite satisfy me, so here is the revised edition.
Drink every time:
- Someone says “Cake Baby” or the sign/logo is displayed
- The f-word and all its adaptations
- Someone speaks in a foreign language
- Finish your drink when Annie finishes her argument with the teenager in the jewelery store.
- Someone in the movie drinks - sip for sip.
- A traffic law is broken.
- Helen upstages Annie.
- Someone gets hit in the boob.
