Queer Eye Gifs For Every College Student's Moods

Who better to represent the up and downs of college than the Fab Five?


Queer Eye has taken college campuses by storm. I had no idea who they were when is stepped on campus in August, and now along with 85% of the female population, I am obsessed with five fabulous, gay men who change lives. So it's only fitting to represent my every mood with a Fab Five gif.

When your friends hold your to your plans to go out on Thursday night.

Thirsty Thursday always sounds like a great idea until it's 11:30 and all you want to do is sleep and watch Netflix.

Finding out class is cancelled.

Better than a good morning from any boy ever.

Thinking about another cafeteria meal.

There's only so many slices of pizza and bowls of cold pasta you can take.

When your friends are having mental breakdowns.

It happens to the best of us, and whether it's crying in library or at their apartment, you're always there for them.

Watching frat pledges.

From tabletop motivational speeches in the caf or swimming in the fountains, watching pledges are one of the most enjoyable parts of college.

When you actually do make it out on Thirsty Thursday.

Or when High School Musical comes on while you're in the car with your friends.

Trying to make it to your 8:00 AM when you wake up at 8:05.

We have all done the sprint of shame.

When you ace an assignment that you though you bombed.

It is a rare occurrence, but it does happen, and it is the best feeling in the world.

Opening the first page of an exam and realizing you know nothing.

No amount of studying can prepare you for the terror the some professors unleash.

When your roommate cooks for the first time.

We ALL have that friend who swears up and down they can cook, and they most definitely cannot.

When you decide to start a project in your room at 3 a.m.

It seems like such a great idea, until the next morning when you wake up in the middle of a disaster covered in glitter and regret.

When your friend finally shows up for class.

It sounds like a great idea to take a class with your friend until they quit coming and you have to sit by yourself.

Making an awful joke and getting actual laughs in return

Being accepted, bad jokes and all is, is what college friends are about.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.


1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten

Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

Presenting Sucks, But It's Necessary

Uh. Uhm. Like.


As VSB's semiannual case competition rapidly approaches, I am paralyzed by fear for what Saturday holds. Though I wish I could be a super confident person who brags about how much he or she loves presenting, I'm not.

While other people like to have their voice heard in the classroom, I actually enjoy taking tests and writing papers. I may be social around others and seem like an extrovert, but I really struggle when it comes to things like presenting. I get sweaty, I get shaky, and my voice occasionally quivers. Yeah sure, it can be embarrassing.

But that doesn't make me less of a student.

I remember the first time I realized I had difficulty presenting. I was newly a freshman in high school after my acceptance to an all girls, private institution. The second I got up to speak, I realized that I was in the presence of some of the smartest girls in my age group in miles. I presented, thought it went fine, but sat back down and was greeted by the type of review only a catty, self-conscious girl would give. "Why is your face like that?" I asked her what she- my new friend, mind you- meant and she went on to imitate me. She contorted her face to look a little scared and a little like she had to pee. I was mortified and so thankful that I was the only one to hear it.

Seven years later, I still think about that moment and how a single person whose opinion does not matter determined how several presentations and my perception of myself would be for years. Though I pity that girl for trying to make me feel bad about myself and distract me from getting an education, I use it as a reminder to be patient with others and always, always lift the people around me up.

With the case competition around the corner, I have to remind myself of my own strengths. I am a strong student, I always prepare extensively, and I bring many intelligent ideas to the table.

This time, I will let myself stutter a little bit if it means I can get all my ideas out. Presenting is tough. But in my pursuit of being a businesswoman in top positions, I better make it work.

I remember one professor last year saying something that really struck me. She warned us that she graded participation intensely and reminded us, "You may have great ideas, but if you don't say them out loud, no one is ever going to know them." Your boss isn't going to read all the slides to your PowerPoint and he or she sure as hell isn't going to read your full 5000 page report. Speaking articulately is important.
