College Life As Told By Friends

Most of us grew up watching Friends-- maybe with our parents or on our own, but who would of thought that the show would become relevant to a college student's life. There are so many memorable quotes to choose from-- Chandler's witty sarcasm, Joey's child-like persona, or Phoebe's thoughtless comments (or are they?) Here are a couple that us college student's can relate to.

1. "Because the more I drink, the less there is for the kids to drink."

Because aren't we all looking for an excuse to get drunk on a Tuesday? Why not make that excuse the kids.


Professors like to give us exams in the most inconvenient times. Who wants to study for an exam on a Monday when it was just the weekend? Why did you fail that Biology exam that was 1/3 of your grade? Well, because WE WERE ON A BREAK!

3. "I'm not even sorry."

College is time to explore and do things outside of our comfort zone. Some of these things might not be approved by friends, family, professors, etc. But why be sorry?

4. "Monday, one day. Tuesday, two day. Wednesday, when? Huh? What day? Thursday, the third day!"

I, personally, will loose track of the days. They seem to blur past me as I study, do my endless hours of homework, and juggle an internship all at once. How else are you going to keep track of when you have that exam unless you have a witty way to keep up?

5. "Hell is filled with people like you."

When it comes to professors, I think this one speaks for itself.

6. "If I'm going down, I'm taking everybody down with me!"

Ah, teacher evaluation forms. Usually at the end of a semester, professors will hand out their evaluation forms. Some unlucky students probably didn't do so well in the class, and if they're going down, they're taking the professor down with them.

7. "I don't know what I'm gonna do with my life."

Much like Chandler, who of us really know's what we're doing with our lives? Before we know it graduation hits and we're running around like chickens with our heads cut off in our caps and gowns.

8. "I don't like when people take food off my plate, okay?"

As a college student, we have a meal plan that we basically depend on to survive. Although, that meal plan isn't usually enough to fulfill our food needs.There are rare moments when we'll get care packages filled with food from home-- and we aren't sharing.

9. "I just shouldn't be allowed to make decisions anymore."

Sometimes we make stupid decisions with our new found freedom-- and sometimes, we just shouldn't be allowed to make those types of decisions anymore.

10. "So why don't you be a grownup and come watch TV in the fort?"

As much as most of us college kids claim to be 'adults' some of us just aren't quite there yet. Every once in a while we just want to watch cartoons in the fort we made in our room and eat mac n' cheese.

11. "Phoebe, do you have a plan?" "I don't even have a 'pla'."

What college student completely has a plan for when they graduate? I envy you if you have a plan for what

you're going to do tomorrow.

12. "Welcome to the real world! It sucks! You're gonna love it!"

We might not be in the real world yet. College life is some sort of limbo to adult hood that we're all in--wandering around, bumping into things, and looking for food. Who's isn't dreading the moment when we walk across the stage and become a functioning member of society? Maybe it'll suck, but we'll probably also love it.

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.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
