5 Reasons Why Everyone Can Relate To The Grinch

On a personal level.

The Grinch may have been seen as different or unusual in Whoville, but on a college campus or in the real world in general, the Grinch just might be the most relatable one of all!

1. He eats when he's bored or emotional. 


Because who doesn't eat an entire bag of potato chips when they have nothing better to do? Or an entire carton of ice cream when they're emotions are getting the best of them?

2. He can't go out if he doesn't have the perfect outfit. 


My closet may look like its full of clothes, but don't let that fool you, I still may not have a single outfit to wear out. Or at least that's the excuse I use when I don't want to go somewhere.

3. He has people who gets under his skin a little too much. 


Whether its a life long enemy or a newly met acquaintance, there is someone out their who irritates us until our very last nerve is shot.

4. He only goes out when free food and gifts are involved. 


Let's be honest, we wouldn't go to half of the events we go to if it weren't for the free food or gifts we were promised in advance.

5. His dog is his best friend. 


Do you find yourself talking to your dog? Possibly talking to your dog more than any actual humans? Yeah, me too.

Maybe the Grinch isn't all so different after all. Maybe, in fact, he is absolutely the most relatable of all.

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.

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.
