The One in 2017..

If F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Took Place Today

Friends, a staple TV show, is still so popular today that there are reruns of it every single day. But have you ever thought about what the show would be like if instead of it taking place in thelate 90's to early 2000's, it took place in 2017?

Their apartments would be A LOT smaller

No 20 something year old could afford a huge two bedroom apartment on a chef or waitress's salary. Today, their apartments would be one bedroom, that they made into two with a wall. There would definitely not be room in these apartments to host the number of people they have in the show.

Rachel would have found out about Ross cheating on her much sooner

Someone would have seen something on social media, or heard about it from a friend and text Rachel before Ross could even get to the coffee house from his apartment.

Carol would meet Susan through a dating app for lesbians

Or, Ross would have discovered that Carol was gay because someone saw her profile on the app.

Chandler would have a profile on every single dating website or app

Desperate times call for desperate measures?

Phoebe's music would be available on SoundCloud

So you could listen to Smelly Cat all day everyday.

Monica would Instagram everything she cooks

Her pictures would probably have captions with hashtags such as #Iamanamazingchef #foodporn #chefmonica

Emma would have her own Instagram

Created by Rachel of course to show the world how cute her baby is.

Monica would start a GoFundMe for her wedding after her parents used the Monica wedding fund to buy a beach house

Her and Chandler would also have the most extravagant wedding ever!!

Phoebe would find her Dad through Facebook

Rookie mistake making a Facebook Frank Buffay. If you're trying to hide from the families you abandoned, having a Facebook is probably not the best move.

Chandler would use Vine to do stand up comedy

He would only have 5 followers (Monica, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe and Joey).

Ross would have a hedgehog or some other "trendy" animal instead of a monkey

Sorry Marcel..

Central Perk would have an app so you could order coffee ahead of time

But don't worry, they will still spend way too much time at the coffee house.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
