10 Winter Struggles Of Oakland Students, As Told By "The Simpsons"


10 Winter Struggles Of Oakland Students, As Told By "The Simpsons"

Oakland University has many perks...as well as, many downfalls. As all universities do.

Eighty percent of Oakland students are commuters. The other 20% are students who reside on campus, but we all face similar problems during the winter semester.

Besides the fact that we live in Michigan and we expect cold weather during the winter, lots of other winter occurrences make OU a special school to attend in the winter.

The Simpsons are an animated family struggling to survive the winter season. They are the perfect family to describe OU's winter probs.

Eat my shorts, winter!

1. You're willing to be late to class in order to get a closer parking spot

2. Moving your car from parking lot to parking lot throughout the day

3. We appreciated the workout in nicer weather, but this hilly campus is killin' us now

4. When it's slushy and the yellow lines are hard to see, so the lot is a mess

5. You can't wear your moccasins because they'll be destroyed after walking to class and your feet will freeze

6. Hilly campus = slip risk maximized

8. When you're in a class that doesn't have windows, so you have no idea what kind of weather happened within that 1 hour and 47 minutes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
