College is an interesting place. We think we are becoming adults, growing into who we are supposed to be, and while (hopefully) that's happening, we also catch on to some pretty unique trends. Although it differs from university to university, depending on the location, weather, etc., here is a list of clothes and accessories that were irrelevant until you came to college.

1. Oversized T-shirts (short or long-sleeved)

So even if you've just rolled out of bed, no one will know.

2. Laptop stickers

You can rep your letters while looking studious.

3. Ugly sandals

Looking at you, Chacos and Birkenstocks. They may be ugly, but they are also comfortable.

4. Nike shorts

So you can at least look like you went to the gym.

5. White high-top Converse sneakers

Very cute, but I'm not sure how this came to be a thing.

6. Backpack buttons

Because why not put your letters on everything you own?

7. Iced coffee

Delicious and energizing.

8. Ray-bans

No makeup? No problem.

9. High-waisted shorts

An excuse to wear short-shorts without showing too much skin.

10. Baseball caps

When dry shampoo just isn't cutting it.

11. Nike running shoes

So your feet aren't killing you by the end of the day.

12. Riding boots/Hunter boots

Keeps those feet warm while looking good.

13. North Face or Patagonia fleeces

The warmest jackets you'll ever wear.

14. Game day pins

Remind you that you're "always wearing your letters," even while tailgating.

15. Frat tanks

To show how much the gym is paying off.

16. Anoraks

Keep you warm while protecting you from the elements (i.e. wind and rain).

17. Flannels

For added warmth, whether they're tied around the waist or worn normally.

18. Spirit Jerseys

Huge and comfy.

19. Fleece or puffer vests

Perfect for those 50 degree fall days.

20. Flower crowns

Used way more than you think, from Bid Day to Waltzes.

21. Longchamp tote bags

Because they carry everything, from your laptop to your water bottle.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

Contemplating Regret

A personal thought on love and regret.

views

BASED ON SONNET 116 BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

LET ME NOT TO THE MARRIAGE OF TRUE MINDS
ADMIT IMPEDIMENTS. LOVE IS NOT LOVE
WHICH ALTERS WHEN IT ALTERATION FINDS,
OR BENDS WITH THE REMOVER TO REMOVE:
O NO; IT IS AN EVER-FIXED MARK.

THE THOUGHT OF YOU AND THE THOUGHT OF US BURNS THE HEAVY DARKNESS OF MY EYELIDS LIKE THE COOL STREAMS OF VODKA THAT SLIDE DOWN MY THROAT. WE WERE IT, YOU WERE IT FOR ME. WE WERE THE KIND OF LOVE, THE TRUE AND UNTAINTED LOVE.

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT.

YOU LEFT A TATTOO ON THE SINEWS OF MY HEART AND BRANDED YOUR TOUCH INTO THE SOFT SKIN OF MY HIPS. I CLOSE MY EYES AGAIN AND ALL I CAN SEE IS YOU, ALWAYS YOU. I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL RECOVER.

OR IF THE RADIANCE OF YOUR SMILE WILL EVER FADE FROM THE STARS.

OR IF THE SOUND OF YOUR LAUGH WILL EVER DISAPPEAR FROM THE FOUR WHITE WALLS OF THIS COLD AND EMPTY ROOM.

BUT HERE'S TO US, THE BROKEN COUPLE WHO COULD NEVER FIND OUR FOOTING IN THE WORLD.

I RAISE A TOAST IN A FRACTURED GLASS FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH A STINGING BITE OF REGRET AND DISAPPOINTMENT. THE SHARP SHARDS CUT MY TONGUE, AND A CRIMSON TIDE BLOCKS THE WORDS I NEVER KNEW HOW TO SAY.

TONIGHT I'LL LOSE YOU AGAIN TO A SEA OF LIGHTS THAT SHINE ALMOST AS BRIGHT AS THE STARS WE USED TO COUNT. THE SAME EXACT STARS THAT YOU SAID WOULD NEVER OUTSHINE MY EYES.
