“I talk to Brad … I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to.”
Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Going away to college is scary — don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. When I left my little, rural town in upstate New York and came to the big city for college at NYU, I was terrified. All of the sudden I had to live on my own with people I barely knew, cook for myself, and (gasp!) learn how to do laundry. An A+ student my whole life, I had to learn to live with B’s and professors who graded like they had a personal vendetta against me. The whole experience of being a first semester freshman at college sucked. It didn’t help that, before classes began, someone in my grade jumped out of the window of a neighboring dorm and killed himself. Within a week, I decided I wanted to change schools. But my parents convinced me to stick it out a bit longer and, eventually, I began to like my new life and surroundings.

But she was under age at the time this picture was taken and if it surfaces someone is going to be in a lot of trouble. The person who has it is now hiding it.” Guess that’s pretty lucky for Ali. The image surfacing would not be the ideal wedding present. [Radar] Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Shortcuts.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in two sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss sending birthday messages to exes, freeloadin’ significant others, gaming-addicted husbands, and when it’s time to move on. Keep reading »
We thought we loved “The Golden Girls,” but apparently we don’t. At least not as much as the guy who got Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sofia tattooed on him in the shape of Mt. Rushmore. Not your bag? Then how about a back piece featuring the cast of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” or an arm tattoo of never-nude “Analrapist” Tobias from “Arrested Development”? Check out this collection from Flavorwire and see if you can spot your favorite shows on other people’s body parts. [Flavorwire] Keep reading »
