Relationship Closed

I'm not one to be paired

With a laundry list of ladies

You have made a listless woman of me

I will not sleaze for your pleasure

And the sleepless nights now seem like

Wastes of precious fleeting seconds

Thank you for making me whole

Then meticulously carving me open

Keeping the fruit, Spitting out seeds

I will never know what you needed

I could never give you what you needed

So consider me, considering this closed


There will be a day

That these bricks that caused me to drown

Will crumble and all will be restored

Pain is just a phase you inflicted on me

Through your layered actions.

Actions that have me treading water,

trying to catching my breath,

choking on salt in the back of my throat.

I will untie the rope that hangs

Like a leash on my ankle

Bury these bricks

And swim


It's hard to find solace most of these days,

But I found her.

She lies in the healthiest fields of green

Where mistakes are forgiven

And nothing is questioned

She wraps her arms around me

And her warm breath strokes my ear

"Let it rest" she whispers

I listen to her words

and accept this present

She's hard to find,

But she is mine

And you will never find her.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
