7 Male Movie Characters We All Know In Real Life

Movies like 'She's the Man' and 'John Tucker Must Die' are as iconic as drunk Taco Bell for collegiate women, but there may be more to these chick flicks than meets the eye. Although the plot lines are unrealistic and every high school student looks like a 20 something-year-old model, the male characters strongly resemble men I've met at my university, and chances are they're lurking your campus too.

1. John Tucker

To kick start the list we've got John Tucker. You probably already have a mental image in your head of who this is at your school - I know I do. Girls want him and boys want to be him. Almost every conversation you have with this kid revolves around women. Physically, he's flawless, but he struggles emotionally. Underneath the ego, there's probably a really cool person, but we won't see him anytime soon.

2. John Tucker's Sidekick

Every John Tucker has one, some even have two. They're his boys. They enable John's giant head with comments like, "You're the man!" This guy is trying to follow John's lead, but can't execute it as well - mostly because he has a conscience. This guy will go far in life, but he needs to find a different role model.

3. Bumper

Bumper is the president of the lamest fraternity at your school. He looks really great on paper which is why he's so cocky, but those who truly know him aren't as impressed. He makes sexist jokes, eats a lot of subway, and can be seen shouting "damn Daniel" in the library.

4. Mr. Bates

Ah yes, Mr. Bates. This one's a personal favorite. This is the professor that judges you for wearing your sorority letters and gives up on you as a student before you even open your mouth. He never prepares for lecture and he's made the same joke three times this semester.

5. Carter Farrell

Carter is permanently friend zoned. He's your dorky bestie that makes weird comments and is always two months behind on pop culture. He's extremely loyal and honest which makes him good company, but he has a tendency of embarrassing you in public.

6. Justin Drayton

This is the star athlete that hates frat guys and still uses an Adidas bag to carry his alcohol. If he's not playing soccer, talking about soccer, watching soccer, or playing FIFA he's probably shotgunning bud light and texting three girls at once. Justin is too immature for a serious relationship right now and he's struggling to find his manhood. I've got a lot faith in Justin though - he'll figure it out.

7. Warner Huntington III

Lastly we have Warner. This guy is perfect. He's smart, handsome, and motivated. He comes from a good family and exudes class. He's got one problem, though: his personality f*cking sucks. He has a 4.0 but can't quite figure out social cues which causes people to believe he's a pompous ass that thinks he's better than everyone else.

If you're wondering why Austin Ames, Duke Orsino, or "The Other Tucker" didn't make the list it's because they don't exist.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
