11 Things Avid Readers Can Relate To On A Spiritual Level

For those of us whose idea of relaxation is diving into the world of a novel, there are a couple of things we know to be true; everything from the obsession of a new favorite book, to the immense love of bookstores, to the crazy amount of time we spend reading (who knew hours could fly by so fast?) are all part of the lives of avid readers. If you love to read, spend countless hours immersed in the pages of your favorite books, or would rather go to a bookstore than anywhere else, you'll probably relate to the following:

1. Looking forward to free time so you can read.

Whether you've started a new book or are reading your favorite novel for the thirtieth time, you savor those moments of time you have to yourself so you can curl up with a captivating novel and read for as long as possible.

2. Appreciating the wonder that is beautiful cover art.

I know they always say don't judge a book by it's cover, but beautiful cover art really just makes a novel that more enthralling. And there is nothing better than an amazing novel adorned by equally amazing cover art.

3. Bookstores are dangerous for your wallet.

You enter a bookstore just to look around and end up buying way more books than you expected. But if you spent your last bit of cash on good books, then its money well spent.

4. When someone asks you for book suggestions, you're far too quick and far too overly excited to give them a comprehensive list of your favorite books.

Do not underestimate my power of telling you in-depth summaries of my favorite books and my arguments for why you should read them.

5. Finishing a good book for the first time is both wonderful and terrible all in one.

My feelings have never been so confused: finishing the book makes me so happy to have read it, and yet so upset that I'll never be able to read it for the first time again.

6. The release of a new book in a series is probably your high point for the week (or month).

And waiting for it to be released truly tests your patience.

7. "Just one more chapter" is one of the biggest lies you can tell yourself.

Five or six is more accurate... and then some more.

8. You can confidently say you like books better than movies.

I mean, both are great, but I feel like I get a bit more freedom when reading a book.

9. Reading multiple novels at once can be even more exciting than just reading one.

The more the merrier!

10. Very old books and very new books have the best smell.

They're both so different and yet so wonderful.

11. There is one movie scene you just can't help but be jealous of.

I'll let it speak for itself.

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."

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.
