The 15 Stages of Applying for an Internship

The Struggle is real.

The 15 Stages of Applying for an Internship
Bonnie Kittle

Entering the "real world" is the ultimate goal of college, right? Well, while we're in college we often forget that (or at least I do). Which means we start to operate on a different schedule than the rest of the world... and forget about deadlines... especially for Internships.

It's one of the most stressful and exciting things you can do while in college. You are literally taking your first step into your career field (hopefully of your dreams). Getting everything in on time is enough of a struggle, but then all the "what if"s pop into your head.

By some miracle of God, we get through and end up with an internship.

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.

How My Long Distance Relationship Changed Me

My personal experience on distance and dating

Bayly Grosskopf

I never thought I would be the kind of person to be in a long distance relationship. I always though that it was selfish to be with someone when you can't really BE with them. I grew up not having a very good example of relationships in my life. My parents were divorced at age nine and I had to mature a lot faster than most, and I never really got to experience that "one big, happy, family" scenario that every other small town American family seemed to have. I never imagined myself to be okay with seeing someone every once in awhile and practically dating a technological device because you couldn't actually be with the person in real life.
