14 Signs You're Addicted To Facebook

When "facebooking" consumes more than half of your day, it's safe to admit, you're an addict. I myself am a social media addict, but what consumes most of my "social media" addiction is most definitely Facebook. Urban Dictionary describes facebooking as:

1. Verb: To waste time by browsing TheFaceBook.com.

Yeah, I spent all last night FaceBooking instead of writing my paper.

2. Verb: To check your Facebook profile, search for something on Facebook or use one of its many apps.

gancho: Dude, put your iPhone away.
make: Hold on a second. I'm facebooking something.
gancho: Don't ever use that as a verb again.

I know you Facebook addicts out there don't want to admit it, but you probably are a Facebook addict. Here are 14 ways to know for sure that you're a Facebook addict.

1. Scrolling through your news feed the second you wake up and the second before you fall asleep.

2. When you go to settings on your iPhone and "Facebook" takes up over 55 percent of your Battery Usage.

3. Spending all day sharing/reading/liking random post and articles on your news feed.

4. Learning all your news from the "Trending" sidebar.

5. Watching those cooking videos that look absolutely delicious and saying to yourself every time you're going to make it, but you end up being too lazy scrolling through Facebook all day.

6. You will never go 30 minutes without being active.

7. Anytime you're ever doing anything on your computer, the Facebook tab will always be open.

8. You have over 1,000 Facebook friends because you crave as many friends as possible.

9. You always are up to date on what everyone is doing because you never miss a post, you're always online.

10. Your friends and family will get mad at you because you will never pay attention to what they're saying. You're way too focused with what's on your Facebook news feed.

11. You spend way too much time just staring at your Facebook profile for no reason.

12. You find it interesting to stalk people on Facebook you knew from your childhood.

13. You automatically type in "Facebook.com" every time you open up your browser.

14. More than half of your Facebook friends aren't actually your real friends. Some you probably haven't even met or talked to before.

If these 14 things consume your life, its time to admit, you're a Facebook addict.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
