The Life Of A Business Major, As Told By 'How I Met Your Mother'

Ahh the business major. The most ambitious, greedy, and serious of college students right? Well, not quite. We may appear to have our shit together and our lives figured out, but trust me when I say that most of us don't. We wouldn't change our major for the world (most days) but it can be a grind. So who else is there to better explain what the life of a business major is really like than the dysfunctional gaggle of friends that make up the cast of "How I Met Your Mother."


Accounting.

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)

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...
