Anticipating The Month Of August As A College Student, As Told By Ross Geller

Seeing old friends, living on your own again, starting school - what else could August bring you?

Anticipating The Month Of August As A College Student, As Told By Ross Geller

For college students, August is the month to look forward to so many things: reuniting with friends you haven't seen all summer, moving back into your beloved college town, getting back into the groove of living on your own, and the parties.

For me, it's a magical feeling when I finally get to be back out on my own after living at home for a summer. One of my favorites things about moving back to college was the fact of getting to see my best friends again and continuing right where we left off and doing crazy activities. No one, however, can describe the feelings during this chain of events better than the one and only, Ross Geller.

Moving Back Into Your Room

The physical work of moving may not be the best part of returning to school, but it may not be so bad - as long as your couch fits in the stairwell and through doorways.

Life On Your Own Can Be Difficult

I remember having several of these moments after moving into my first apartment with my friends. When something broke or we didn't know how to fix it, it seemed as if the world was ending. In reality, we just needed to plug it back in or make sure the breaker was on.

Seeing Old Friends

Whether you plan on seeing your friends or it happens from across the student union, you always run to them and give them a hug or fangirling around until you've both come to terms that you're never separating again.

Doing Crazy Things With Your Best Friend

Driving around like maniacs, spending too much time at your favorite restaurant, or ordering each other's favorite drinks at the bars, you will truly never want to separate from your best friend. You'll realize that spending a summer away from each other can't ever happen again, and you'll sign a pact saying so.

Partying On A Saturday

This is one of the best freedoms about being back at school. Now, you and your crew can get down to Funky Town every single weekend.

Partying Two Different Nights In One Weekend

Yolo. Partying more than once a weekend is still a thing, right? Live life with no regret. Don't let your negative friends dictate your life, anyway they're probably jealous you have the tolerance to party more than once.

The Realization School Starts In The Morning

Wait, you mean the almost two weeks I moved down here before school starts is OVER? It can't be. It can't be Sunday night and I'm already in bed.

When The Real Schoolwork Starts

How you'll feel after syllabus week won't even compare to how you felt beforehand. The and homework starts piling up and if you don't manage it you'll be overwhelmed in no time.

End Of The Month Grade Check

It was always a relief to check my grades at the end of August to make myself feel accomplished. You might have done one or two assignments in each class, so the grade you saw was never a real depiction of how your final grade would end up.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

I've been in a media job for the entirety of my professional career. From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
