Because we need to stave off boredom somehow...

Websites To Entertain You While In Class

Let’s face it. We never pay full attention in class. Sometimes we’ll space out. If the professor allows computers, we’ll start browsing instead of taking notes. It’s inevitable. There’s the standard Facebook and Twitter. You can send some emails, message friends, and catch up on what's going on in the world. However, once you’ve refreshed your News Feed three times in one minute, things start looking a little bleak as you realize you have nothing else to occupy your time with while the professor is up there still babbling about who knows what. Luckily, here are some other websites you may or may not have heard off that are highly entertaining for when you’ve exhausted all your options.

1. Buzzfeed (

This one is obvious. I’m sure everyone has heard of Buzzfeed and has frequented it in the past. I’m guilty of visiting it probably a little more often than is normal. It’s reached the point where people will show me things and I’ll be like “Yeah, I saw that a couple of days ago.” That’s beside the point. I listed Buzzed first because it’s my go-to and highly entertaining. You can catch up on news, read funny stories, take quizzes. The possibility are endless.

2. StumbleUpon (

I haven’t met many people that have heard of StumbleUpon in the past. I started using this website in high school when one of my friends told me about it and from then on, my life was completely changed. What you do is you make a free account (you can use a social media account), you check off your interests from a list, which range anywhere from travel to celebrities to outer space, and then you click the “Stumble” button. Once you do, you’ll be taken to random websites related to the interests you listed at the beginning. It’s amazing and addicting. I’ve spent way to many hours stumbling upon (pun intended) the coolest and most entertaining pages that I never would have found otherwise.

3. Thought Catalog (

Thought Catalog is great if you love to read random articles or stories. There are serious real life stories, opinion pieces, funny listicles, news pieces, etc. You can spend hours on here since the articles are usually pretty short and you are always bound to find something that catches your eye.

4. The Irish Potato (

It seems that this website started in January. However, I wasn't aware of it's existence up until last week, but props to whoever started it because it's actually pretty funny. If you are a fan of The Onion then you'll definitely enjoy The Irish Potato because it's basically the same thing but Notre Dame related.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
