17 Irish Proverbs Every College Kid Should Live By

In honor of St. Patrick's Day's passing, here are some Irish proverbs to keep in mind during your college days.

1. However long the day, night must fall. Even if it was the bar crawl from St. Patrick's Day.

2. You must take the little potato with the big potato. Sometimes it's hard to spot the little potato, while other times it's really easy.

3. Everyone feels his own wound first. Especially against the hard. cement. pavement.

4. Pity him who makes opinion a certainty. Pity the ignorance.

5. Who keeps his tongue keeps his friends. Some things aren't worth fighting over.

6. A heavy purse makes a light heart. Which is convenient, since we're all broke college students.

7. A cat can look at a king. We'll be the king one day.

8. You won't learn to swim on the kitchen floor. You won't do anything productive on the kitchen floor.

9. Slow is every foot on an unknown path. Also, unknown paths are not to be trekked on alone.

10. Forgetting a debt doesn't mean it's paid. And it doesn't mean that the person who lent you money forgot it either.

11. Lie down with dogs and you'll rise with fleas. You are who you hang out with; just make sure your friends don't have fleas.

12. Beauty won't make the kettle boil. Beauty is temporary, but brains are forever.

13. Young people don't know what old age is, and old people forget what youth was. Which is why professors schedule your midterm the day before spring break.

14. The schoolhouse bell sounds bitter in youth and sweet in old age. One day we will reminiscence about that midterm the day before spring break.

15. Lose an hour in the morning and you'll be looking for it all day. Procrastination is not key.

16. It's the first drop that destroys you, there's no harm at all in the last. Even if it destroys you, no one likes a quitter.

17. A man takes a drink, the drink takes a drink, the drink takes the man. Don't let the drink take you.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
