    Modabound: Solving the UF Fashion Crisis

    It was an all-too-familiar scene. Tobi, for the 15th time and counting, baited me with one of their irresistible and plentiful “50% Off Sitewide Sale!” email blasts. Despite my better judgment and my dwindling post-grad bank account, I still couldn’t resist. Just one week after my impulsive order, I came home to discover a neat little package of Tobi goodies waiting on ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah Mclachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken the task ...

    (Don’t) Meet The Parents

    Meeting the parents. It’s been chronicled via the cringe-inducing relationship between Jack Byrnes and Greg Focker. It’s been grazed over by David Sedaris, and it’s been depicted numerous times on “Friends.” You don’t hear about this dreaded scenario often in college because, naturally, you’ve gotta meet a boyfriend/girlfriend before you meet parents. And we’re all well-aware that “forever alone” is the collective ...

    Are Three Simple Words Killing Your Career?

    This is a guest post by AthensScene’s Kate Davis The three hardest words to utter in the English language are “I don’t know.” Instead of admitting to not knowing an answer, we dance around the truth, inserting what little we do know about the subject. In this era particularly, no one can force the heavy sorrowful words “I don’t know” to be ...

    Culture Your Fu**ing Self

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Gainesville. You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a sub-par 3-4-1 Long Island at Cantina every night or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore. We’ve helped you survive your road trips and spring break, ...

    A Rainy Lesson in Being Present and Pleasant

    On Wednesday morning, my alarm was not the most disappointing thing I heard. Mother Nature welcomed me to the land of consciousness with the clanging of torrential downpour on my apartment’s tin roof. It was 8:30, a time I forgot existed, and I had to leave for a meeting in an hour. When people joke that pigs will fly when the sun ...

    WTF? The Israel-Palestine Conflict Explained

    The Israeli/Palestinian conflict is basically as old as the land itself. It’s a conflict so deeply emotional and so rooted in history the only way to understand it is to just admit you will never understand it. No matter what view you take, ultimately, it will seem ridiculous that it has gone on for so long. In the past week and a ...

    Yes, You Should Own a Dog in College

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Leanne Castro Nothing reveals a person’s true colors quite like how he or she handles living alone. Some, like Henry David Thoreau, flourish in the aloneness and end up writing the book of their career. Others, like myself, handle loneliness a little less gracefully. This summer I found myself having to temporarily move to North ...

    “Snowpiercer:” The Ultimate Cinematic Ride

    We’re all familiar with the Captain America Chris Evans, but in “Snowpiercer” he sheds his stars and stripes and trades them in for tattered clothes, a perpetual scowl and a beard that is as dark as his past. When global warming threatens to kill off all living things, scientists invent a solution that backfires and freezes the entire planet, killing all living ...

    The Crazy Stages of a College Crush

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Alyse Faour  Crushes are often associated with youth. They are a way of reminding us that we are too young to emotionally commit to someone, so it’s labeled as a crush to applaud how adorable we are for having feelings. Growing up doesn’t mean you stop having crushes. They just develop past the stalking stage ...

    The Reality of the NYC Experience

    Disclaimer: To each his own. Growing up, I was one of those kids with pictures of Wall Street hanging all over my walls. I opened up an IRA when I was 14 (ambitious move, kid) and started my grind for the cash flow. New York wasn’t just a dream; it was the period to my sentence. I truly didn’t believe I belonged ...
