The Stages Of Being Roasted As Told By "The Office"

Nothing was more iconic than the Justin Bieber roast on Comedy Central Roast. Ever since then, the term “roasting” has taken off. Let’s be real: roasting people is HILARIOUS, especially if the person deserves it. It’s all fun and games until you’re the person in your friend group or team or grade that gets roasted 24/7. This goes out to all of the unfortunate chosen ones. To the roaster: in case you were wondering what it feels like to be roasted, which you probably don't, just go ahead and roast your roastee while you’re at it for reading this article.

1. When you're just minding your own business, and suddenly your whole friend group attacks you

2. And now the spotlight is on you for just being you

3. So you sit there quietly, absorbing the insults and pretending that you're not wounded on the inside

4. You quickly bottle up your feelings and attempt to move on, knowing that you will probably cry about it later

Because if you don't move on or cry about it now, you will continue to get roasted.

5. Then there's that person who isn't even part of the squad, that joins in on roasting you like it's a game of frisbee

You realize that it starts to get to a point where people are justing roasting you to roast you so it eventually stops hurting after a while and you start to feel numb to the pain.

6. Not to mention, you get blamed for everything that goes wrong

It could be the dining hall running out of quesadillas, ants in the dorm, classes not getting cancelled, a clogged toilet, global warming... you name it, -- because you did it.

6. You think to yourself “Screw them. I’m a strong, independent human being and I can stand up for myself!”

7. And that’s when you start to fight back

8. Which drastically goes downhill

9. So you’re back to where you started -- getting roasted.

10. Now you have no comebacks, no weapons, no sense of self-esteem...

11. But you learn to accept this life, your title, as the roasted person

You didn’t choose this life, it chose you and you’re not quite sure how or why. Regardless, you own it and it has made you a better person.

12. So you move on with your life knowing that when the next day comes, it will be full of getting roasted and your friends sharing the story about how you got roasted yesterday to a whole new group of people

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

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.
