They're your rock, the thing that keeps you from pulling your hair and teeth out on those stressful nights of studying. Nothing is better than reuniting with them after such a long time apart.

2. When you're trying to sleep your first night back on campus and your neighbors won't shut up at 3 in the morning

Ah, I love the sound of bass and drawers slamming and people screaming when I have to get up in three and a half hours-- wait, NOT. We've all had people like that, whether they live above you, next to you, or even in your own room! Just try to find sme ear plugs and pop a melatonin, my pals.

3. When you finally have unlimited access to the never-ending junk food on campus

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F06%2F6362194838833708211898618359_PandR%25203.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=558&h=1eb4eb2f69eba09f02d3aa3b44e4c8f0c4d1aff0f9ae63489bd4d23e2d717489&size=980x&c=757593222 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F06%252F6362194838833708211898618359_PandR%2525203.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D558%26h%3D1eb4eb2f69eba09f02d3aa3b44e4c8f0c4d1aff0f9ae63489bd4d23e2d717489%26size%3D980x%26c%3D757593222%22%7D" expand=1]

Chicken fingers, french fries, Chinese food, ice cream, soda, pie-- you name it, i can get it at any given time on my campus. And who would rather eat broccoli over a slice of pizza anyways? Maybe I should add work on impulse control to my to-do list...

4. When you have to wake up and walk in the cold to your 8 AM class

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F06%2F636219492959446802590224798_PandR%25206.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=361&h=ed649c46676c1cb6e0419be84f04762f68c5e3371e94cc99bd72d4d272bb674d&size=980x&c=2270085286 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F06%252F636219492959446802590224798_PandR%2525206.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D361%26h%3Ded649c46676c1cb6e0419be84f04762f68c5e3371e94cc99bd72d4d272bb674d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2270085286%22%7D" expand=1]

It's the first week of classes, first impressions are everything! There's no excuses for not going. My suggestion is to make at least three cups of coffee and make sure you're dressed warmly!

5. When the professor is going over the syllabus

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F06%2F6362194856063880181143990990_PandR%25204.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=357&h=f71e2f9978b2741b4794c314f9660df9b511915b21e5d1a54de02fdb29387ff2&size=980x&c=2026385129 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F06%252F6362194856063880181143990990_PandR%2525204.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D357%26h%3Df71e2f9978b2741b4794c314f9660df9b511915b21e5d1a54de02fdb29387ff2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2026385129%22%7D" expand=1]

Blah, blah, blah. Same stuff, different professor. We know not to cheat or use our phone in class. We also know you don't want to be here just as much as us.

6. When your assigned an essay on the first day of class

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F06%2F6362194810277424131635710335_PandR%25201.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=955&h=8af63d249e3589cf631c703e8e955f3640969c3c4faab74521689f698510a233&size=980x&c=1129886900 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F06%252F6362194810277424131635710335_PandR%2525201.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D955%26h%3D8af63d249e3589cf631c703e8e955f3640969c3c4faab74521689f698510a233%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1129886900%22%7D" expand=1]

College isn't for the weak, my buds. There's no waiting period to ease back into the swing of things. Essays happen, especially at the beginning of the semester. Don't be like Chris, it won't be the end of the world! If you're stuck, visit your campus writing center, they'll be glad to help!

7. When you've conquered the first week of classes

One down 16 more to go! 16 more tiring, stressful, anxiety-ridden weeks... but we got this, right guys?

8. When you and your besties get to finally hang out on the weekend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F06%2F636219496230974980727675022_PandR%25207.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=134&h=8139bcb0520114763c4062a75a92a8b96c4a701e6baa1f4b8d74f8a36cf86a66&size=980x&c=3979858834 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F06%252F636219496230974980727675022_PandR%2525207.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D134%26h%3D8139bcb0520114763c4062a75a92a8b96c4a701e6baa1f4b8d74f8a36cf86a66%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3979858834%22%7D" expand=1]

Time to let loose, shake your booty, drink something fun, and get your sax ready! The first weekend back is always a wild one-- just make sure to do your homework once you recover!

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
