9 Things Your Professor Probably Said To You On The First Day Of Classes

We've all heard it. Hopefully, you've endured your first day and survived the boring introductions to your classes.

1. "Attendance is mandatory"

Ugh we get it. We pay for class, but show up for class (even though I don't want to).

2. "I don't have to read the syllabus to you"

They say it... but they will continue to read too much of it.

3. "The textbook isn't that expensive"

Listen buddy. I'm only fake rich. I've got that student loan, not a million dollars.

4. "As long as you do the work, you'll pass the class"

But what if you don't wanna do the work?

5. "Not a lot of people pass this class, so you should get a tutor now."

If you hear this, it's a red flag. Run. Find a different professor who is actually going to to do their job and TEACH you.

6. "I realize it's after lunch, but you have to wake up."

You professor will say this to you, even though they're yawning.

7. A very bad mispronunciation of your name.

You just smile, laugh it off, and correct them.

8. "The course schedule is in the syllabus"

Even though you know they won't follow it.

9. "We're gonna have fun this semester"

Yet the only one with the doctorate is saying it.

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.

To The Classes That Follow
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.
