An Honest Cover Letter To Potential Employers

Reading between the lines of bullshit.

An Honest Cover Letter To Potential Employers

Dear Potential Employer,

I am a broke-ass college student majoring in something that will hopefully keep me from living in a cardboard box during my post-grad years. I am interested in quite literally whatever position you are offering. I have no standards, because beggars can't be choosers. I learned of this position through my 2 a.m. desperation after spending $40 on food.

I am intrigued by this job because I need money. I'm probably not especially qualified for this job, or perhaps I'm overqualified and in normal circumstances this menial job would be completely beneath me. But these are not normal circumstances. This is college, where I want to buy a ton of clothes I don't need and pizza I shouldn't be eating as well as certain liquid substances which I also probably technically shouldn't be consuming if we are to consider the fact that I have to ask my senior friends to purchase said substances for me. But hey, you were young, wild, and free and underage once too, right?

My relevant experience includes:







*other resume buzz words to make your hiring manager heart sing*

*other bullshit in which I grossly over-exaggerate the gravity of the mediocre tasks I've had minor involvement in over the years*

*some more bullshit in which I try to make completely unrelated accomplishments seem remotely connected to the job description and what you're looking for in an applicant. I'm basically your puppet at this point.*

Working in whatever job you are offering would allow me to combine my love for indulging that little voice that says "treat yo' self" with my desperation for money to pay for such gluttonous consumption and my dedication to ensuring that you don't fire me so that I may continue to regret all my life choices and rack up an unreasonably large credit card bill (I prefer to view it as "accruing credit").

Please hire me.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
