Not everything makes me sad to say goodbye.

11 Things That I Won't Miss About College

With graduation just around the corner, seniors are starting to get emotional and nostalgic. We're all sad to be leaving behind a place that's become our home over the past few years, and the friends who have become our family. But, rather than focusing on what we don't want to leave behind, let's take a moment to celebrate the fact that there are also annoying things about college that we won't have to put up with anymore.

Here is a list of all of the things that won't be missed by graduating seniors:

1. Putting off doing laundry because the washing machines and dryers are a) gross b) always full unless it's the dead of night and c) only work like 43% of the time.

2. Wearing shoes in the shower.

Or just the dirty dorm showers in general. Freshman year, I yawned in the shower and a bug flew into my mouth (true story).

3. Getting sick from the food after a long break because your body hasn't "adjusted" to it yet.

4. Having to eat bananas that are either too ripe or not ripe enough because that's all the dining hall ever has.

"Really? Peru's in South America?"

Really? You're in college?

7. Wifi that always seems to stop working as soon as you have to write a research paper or video chat with your grandma.

One of two things happen when you try to fall asleep: it's impossible to get comfortable, or the thing starts sliding off your bed and you have to keep readjusting it.

9. People that act like they're still in high school.

And puke sitting in trash cans, water fountains, or sinks for days on end, stinking up the halls.

To all of these things we say, goodbye and good riddance.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
