13 Tell-Tale Signs You're A Masshole Living In NYC
The Boston Herald

You may not think there's very many of us in New York, but I've met my fair share. Hiding out in a Dunkin, a whispered Boston accent from a corner -- Massachusetts people are alive and well in NYC. If you're looking for a fellow Bostonian, here are some tell-tale signs you're from Massachusetts:

1. You will always pick Dunks over Starbucks.

And it's Dunks, not "Dunkin' Donuts."

2. People often ask you to translate for other Bostonians.

There's a wicked packie right before the roundabout, just bang a uey at the Bertucci's.

3. A "GOAT" is not just an animal to you.

4. Halloween isn't just a holiday, it's a part of your culture.

Salem, Massachusetts is the most haunted place in the world and it's awesome.

5. You know there's only one to make clam chowder, and it doesn't involve tomatoes.

THIS is what clam chowder should look like.

6. You're afraid to wear Pats gear in the city.

You may get hurt by a rabid Yankees fan.

7. You laugh at what New Yorkers call a "blizzard."

They don't know what real winter is.

8. The best summer spot is Martha's Vineyard, not the Hamptons.

9. Your friends can't believe when you walk across 6 lines of traffic in Midtown before the light goes red.

10. You still want to call the subway lines by the colors instead of the letters.

11. The scoopers at Morgenstern's stare at you when you ask for jimmies.

12. When you order a coffee "regular," you're confused why it's black.

13. Being called a "masshole" is in no way an insult.

Wicked proud of it!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
