15 Vines That Perfectly Describe The College Experience.

15 Vines That Perfectly Describe The College Experience.

Because Vine is the culture.

Movies and TV shows love to depict college in such a "party hard, work never" way, but most college students can attest to the fact that the media's fantasy of college just isn't real. Vine (RIP), undeniably, is one of the biggest impacts to our generation's society, so there is no better way to properly describe the college experience than by using vines (and some short videos).

1. Dead Doves

You coming back from Thanksgiving Break thinking that you’re rejuvenated but your soul is just as dead as it was before

2. Michael Scott


When you’re doing a group presentation and you feel like you’re speaking the least so you try to say random shit to make up for it.

4. Then Where the Hell Can We Go?

When your favorite bar/club/ party house gets shut down


When you butt heads with your roommate and it doesn’t seem like you can peacefully do anything anymore

6. An avocado… thanks

When you get a random gift from a family member you forgot you had (but seriously, we appreciate every and any gift we can get, so if you sent us a gift, thank you).

When you see that you only have $3.28 in your bank account.

15. hey that's a wATER CUP!!!

If The Songs In 'A Star Is Born' Album Were Your College Major

Because grades have really gone "by the wayside."


I think about "A Star Is Born" daily and I saw the movie weeks ago. Bradley Cooper is AMAZING and I want him to break into the music biz and release an album. Lady Gaga, wow. I forget her humble meat dress beginnings and I have so much more respect for her as an entertainer. Also their chemistry, dang. It's good. However, the real star of "A Star Is Born"..... THE ALBUM. It is beautiful and tells a wonderful story and Bradley Cooper actually wrote a bunch of them. So let's go down the time of the eighteen songs that make me weep and apply it to our college majors, so you can jam out while studying for finals.

1. "Black Eyes" - Engineering 


Let's be honest, engineering is hardcore, because it requires lots of math (lol pass), creativity, and problem solving skills. Black eyes is very hardcore and the movie opener. Also bradley cooper learned to play the guitar for this role and dang did he succeed. What a lil engineer.

2. "La Vie En Rose" - French/ another foreign language 


Ok, I can barely remember the Spanish alphabet and here Lady Gaga is singing a BEAUTIFUL song in French. Classic foreign language people. I can see why Jackson Maine catches the feels in this song. Honestly same.

3. "Maybe It's Time" - Education 


The song is very basic (one might say elementary) and it talks about letting "the old ways die" and I would argue that is what teachers do every day by stopping bad learning habits and teaching me important things like reading and tying my shoe.

4. "Out of Time" - Math / Statistics 


This song is a hardcore guitar solo, likely taking years to master. Similar to math, it starts with the basic addition and subtraction but then suddenly you throw in calculus and everything gets difficult. Snaps for Bradley Cooper and Math / Statistic majors.

5. "Alibi" - Philosophy 


This song is another banger, but Bradley cooper keeps singing the words "I don't lie, without an alibi" and I'd like to think that ethical philosophy majors don't lie either. Ya kno? Also no one should lie or cheat because #honorcode

6. "Shallow" - Marine Biology 


You're lying if you say you don't belt "IN THE SHA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LOW" alone in the car . It is a major bop and even though I'm not Lady Gaga, I'd like to think I'm hitting those high notes along with her.

7. "Music to My Eyes" - Musical Theory


During this part in the movie Ally and Jack realize that they are not only a couple with incredible chemistry, but also an iconic music duo. This long is all about, music, harmony, and (of course) love. Musical theory majors, let's be real, this is your dream come true.

8. "Diggin' My Grave" - Nursing


This song is kinda depressing if you listen to the lyrics, which could be similar to Nursing. But Nurses are amazing and so necessary, just like this bop of a song.

9. "Always Remember Us This Way" - English 


Ok, this is by far the best song on the album and I'm an English major so I'm definitely biased, but I still think only an English major could write a song this beautiful. So when you got a writer's block and you're "all choked up and [you] can't find the words," just ask an English major.

10. "Look What I Found" - Journalism 


Journalism is all about investigation and finding the truth. Also this single is the start of Ally's career, just like any good news story or op-ed is the start of a major scandal.

11. "Heal Me" - Biology / Pre Med 


Doctors heal people with good ole modern medicine and #science and for that I am very thankful.

12. "I Don't Know What Love Is" - Undecided 


It's okay not to know what love is or what you want to do for the rest of your life! That is what college is all about!

13. "Is That Alright?" - Religious Studies 


I think I had a religious experience listening to this song. If not, I was definitely crying and rethinking my life.

14. "Why Did You Do That?" - Exercise Science  


Lady Gaga is dropping some major dance movies during this song and is breaking a hardcore sweat on SNL. She is getting a major workout while I was in the movie theater sitting for 2.5 hours eating pop corn and drinking a slushy.

15. "Hair Body Face" - Marketing / Advertising 


Marketing is all about the #brand, which include your hair, body, and face. Simple.

16. "Before I Cry" - Business 


This song is EMOTIONAL and I would be too if I was studying for an Econ final. You probs couldn't pay me enough money in the world to be a Business major, but luckily for others, you can.

17. "Too Far Gone" - Environmental Studies 


With climate change, overpopulation, mass extinction of keystone species, and extreme pollution, many Environmental Studies majors feel the earth is too far gone and beyond saving. Which is depressing, so maybe let's try to recycle and do better.

18. "I'll Never Love Again" - Musical Theater 


Wow. Just wow. Lady Gaga should have been an MT.

The Honest Truth About Stress

This is exactly what you need to hear


Stress is draining. It takes all of our energy, our focus, and just makes us feel almost useless.

When we are stressed we lose our focus on what we are stressed about and focus on how our stress is causing more stress. We take bubble baths, watch movies, put on face masks, we do whatever it takes to make our stress go away and often times it never does.

Lou Holtz says "it's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it." Our stress is so draining because we don't know how to carry it. We look at all these tips and tricks on how to organize our lives, we have Pinterest boards devoted to relaxation and healthy living, but when we get stressed we honestly don't know what to do.

There is no cure for stress.

Or is there?

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." James 1:2-4

Our trials, seen in the right way, can produce joy. Our trials bring us perseverance and the fact that we can face one and then face another, and another after that is truly magnificent. Yes, stress is draining, but how often do we look at a road filled with green lights and say "wow all of those green lights really helped strengthen my patience"? No, we learn patience through getting red lights or getting stuck behind slow drivers when we're in a rush.

Everyone knows that stress kills joy, but when we look at stress from the end rather than the beginning or being stuck right in the middle it changes everything. It makes us think, it forces us to be uncomfortable, and best of all once we're through it there is always joy.

Stress drains us, but it also challenges us. It grows us and allows us to see that we are capable of doing more and being more. As Thanksgiving comes, we can be thankful for the hard times because we know they bring goodness.
