Watching Like Crazy because I don’t know that movie gives me the perfect happy/sadness that I constantly crave when I am feeling sad, especially the familiar neutral sadness that branches from the constant numbness of not being with my love. That movie just always in a way reminds me of us. Though the story is quite different, the sequences hold such a likeness to my personal life. The...
There needs to be 24 hr fashion malls for girls that suffer from late night depression like me. Is that not a good marketing idea?
Being home alone sucks so horribly. I kind of can’t wait to have roommates again, especially one who understands having a boyfriend that is so far away from you. A long distance relationship is so hard on nights like these when you don’t want to be out, but you don’t want to be alone either. I really, deeply miss him. I don’t get to talk to him for another week while he is...
I know this sounds really bad, but I’ve become a home body. Of course, like any college student, I enjoy going out and having a good time with friends. Lately though, I’ve just wanted to stay home and watch Doctor Who and eat ramen noodles alone at my computer. I don’t know why. I decided to go out tonight to celebrate with my friends, but I was ready to go home at 1, and they...
Ok, so I know this sounds horrible, but I. AM. ADDICTED. TO. SNAPCHAT. I made it a few weeks ago when my friend Elizabeth forced me to make one so we could send each other double chin photos. I kind of forgot about it until two or three days ago and I’m almost constantly snapchatting someone… In short, add me if you want gratuitous 10 second photos of me. Username: derpmantha ...
AHHHHH HELP IT’S HAPPENING. Dear teachers, Please excuse Samantha Wood from all finals week activity. Her existential angst along with general self-consciousness precludes her from leaving her apartment. Most unremittingly, Her self loathing
My eagerness to complete this semester is unbearable. I have only one week left of classes that includes finishing this final paper, presenting my French composition, a French and music final, and some other miscellaneous assignments. All my grades are borderline A’s and B’s and I really just want to get a 4.0 this semester. On top of that, I need to get a job for the summer. My dad...
I get people just want to be nice on the extremely rare occasions I wear my hair down, but sometimes when people ask “Oh, are you letting your hair grow out?” I just want to respond with “Holy shit! I totally have forgotten to maintain my pixie cut in the past year!!!” -____-
My boyfriend better appreciate this bra and panty set I just purchased at Victoria’s Secret. I don’t ever buy sexy sets, let alone buy VS’s stuff full price. $90 for a bra and teeny underwear! On a college student’s budget! I didn’t even really love the set, it was just the nicer one there from the scarce amount of choices. Usually I always see pretty, elegant sets...
There should be a world for people like me. Our own separate existence where one can be alone with loners
There are thirty Hispanic men working on the roofs of my apartment complex. They’ve been outside for the past three days, clanging away. They are diligent in their work as I pass to walk to and from classes. Today as I was walking back I wondered what they think of us [college students], and what they think of Auburn. I wondered if they had wished they went to college, if they had the...

theshelflives: I just want to say that all my fellow English/Literature/Writing majors out there deserve a big pat on the back. Going to school to study something that you love and have passion for rather than going to school for something that will “gaurantee” you a direct doorway to a “good/high paying job”… Ah, thank you for putting this into words for me. Goodbye computer science,...
The weather is cold and grey. My closest thing to a friend has received a DUI charge. My grandmother, my best supporter, is slowly passing away. Also, I am being pressed to make a moral decision that may change the entire future of one man’s life resulting in years of jail. This muted weather won’t last and soon a tornado is going to consume me.
