Time to take a trip to the Upside Down!

College As Explained By Eleven From "Stranger Things"

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’ve heard of the new Netflix original series, Stranger Things. It seems as if everyone has either watched it or has had a friend beg them to give it a chance. No matter what, there are some pretty iconic moments in the show that are sure to go down in television history. Most of those moments involve a specific character – Eleven (El for short). And, since college can be an awful lot like the terrifying world of the Upside Down, I thought it’d be fun to see how El would react to it.

So, here is college life as explained by Eleven. Hopefully she doesn’t run into any Demogorgons!

1. When you walk into your first class - and you don't know anyone.

2. When the professor says attendance isn't mandatory.

3. When you can’t fall asleep because the pressure of adulthood is slowly eating you alive.

4. When it's Monday.

5. When someone asks you what grade you got on the first assignment.

6. When you're struggling to get ready for your 8 AM.

7. When you have two tests to study for, ten chapters to read, and a plan to end world hunger all due by tomorrow.

8. When you actually get to go out on the weekend.

9. But then you realize you just tricked yourself into procrastinating.

10. When your entire class fails a test together.

11. When it's nearing the end of the year and you're desperately trying to use up the rest of your meal plan.

12. When you're drowning in stress.

13. When you gotta put your thinking cap on and teach yourself an entire course in one night.

14. Walking into class on the last day.

15. Walking out.

Congrats El, you escaped the Upside Down! Now if only we could find Barb…

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
