Do’s and Don’ts: Spring Edition

spring-break-2012-whystayhere


Weekly Wisdom From Campus Diva
Damn. What a nice rack…of books. After stalking your spring break pictures for hours on end, you snap, painfully, back into reality and realize that you are indeed in the library and not in Panama City Beach/Ultra/Cancun/(somewhere that’s hopefully not your couch). You and your friends exchange war stories, show battle wounds and mupload those pictures of you doing body shots off an old Mexican. Unfortunately, what happens in Cancun doesn’t stay in Cancun when you have an iPhone – #YOLO, more like #OHNO. Too bad the glory days are over, right? WRONG. Just because girls may be wearing slightly more clothes here on the mainland doesn’t mean that you can’t get sprung this spring.

DO: Dage Your Face Off

UDel Day Drink

Dage: [day+rage] – verb

It should be a legit crime against humanity to sleep in on Saturday morning when the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the booze is flowing. Who needs a dusty old frat basement when you can rock out to some country, house music and throwbacks while gettin’ your tan on? But word to the wise, no guy looks good with a pinnie burn line – sorry lax bros. Do more: wear sunscreen and some deodorant while you’re at it. Beautiful weather brings sweaty AND smelly pits. Trust me on this one. You probably shouldn’t wear grey either, pit stains are far from sexy.

Slip and Slide

If you’re lucky, you might even get a front row seat to see a bunch of hotties going ham on a slip ‘n slide. You thought spring break fun was over? Wrong again. Drunk girls + wet shirts = happy boys. As an added bonus, it’s much easier to dodge grenades when the sun sheds some light on your beer goggles. This way, when a butterface or that girl with some extra junk in the trunk, and everywhere else on her body, gives you her number and says, “Here’s my number, so call me maybe?” you can be happily save yourself an awkward morning after and confidently respond with a “hell no.”

DON’T: Call Me Maybe

Sexy Girls Phone Number

Deny hating it all you want guys, but even the devil is blasting that song in Hell. I’ll give you the low down of what should happen after you get a girl’s number:

1)   Hey, I just met you and this is crazy

2)   Here’s my number

3)   So CALL ME maybe DEFINITELY

Before you came into her life she missed you so bad. Am I the only one who thinks that line makes absolutely no sense? How the hell can you miss a guy before you’ve met him? Creepy, but catchy as hell. But anyway, girls love to say that they don’t sit around waiting for the phone to ring, but they do. Screw the wait-two-day bullshit rule, grow some balls and make a move. You’ll save a girl a lot of frustration and save her iPhone from some serious abuse, which often comes in the form of throwing, smashing, cracking, etc. What can I say? Bitches be cray.

Do: Have a Spring Fling

Who needs to get wifed up when summer is just around the corner? You may think that every girl wants a relationship, but that’s not always the case. If you’re okay with being a boy toy, then go find yourself a girl who likes to play with more than Ken dolls. The key to successfully mastering the spring fling, AKA the spring buck fuddy, is to tell the girl upfront that you’re not looking for anything serious and don’t want a girlfriend. If you don’t do this early in the game, you could end up with a stage five clinger who secretly writes your name in hearts on her notebooks and incessantly tries to DTR (define the relationship).

DON’T: Miss the View on the Green

Tanning

Oh the weather outside is weather, and lucky for you it’s getting warmer. Coming to a green near you: girls in bikinis. It’s time to shed those heavy winter coats and jeans and get your tan on – sun’s out guns out! Chances are, if a girl is baring it all in front of everyone on campus, she’s got a hot bod. But if not, then for your sake, I hope you didn’t eat a big lunch because a half naked chick who should NOT be half naked is a nauseating sight. Screw the crowded weight room and go for a run or have a catch with some of your bros, preferably shirtless. “Accidentally” throwing a football toward a group of girls is an effortless way to start a conversation. You have to get your ball back somehow. We’ve all seen this move a hundred times, but hey, if a hot guy with a six-pack threw a football at me I certainly wouldn’t hate it.

The College Bucket List (For This Summer)

no thumb

School’s pretty much over for most of us right now, and finally we have weather that feels like summer. But last week when it was still freezing outside, I watched the movie The Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson for the first time. A few days later, The Campus Socialite Headquarters retweeted a CBS link about the only college bucket list you’ll ever need.

That list the people at CBS gave us was actually pretty good. I’d probably only change a couple of things based on where you go to school and what’s tradition and important there.

But anyway, after watching the movie, reading what CBS considers the top must-do things in college to be and being told the world was going to end today, I decided to make a bucket list for us soon-to-be/recent graduates, for before we hit the real world road hard. You know, for us to enjoy this summer as a last one connected to our college lives.

Why It’s Okay To Graduate College Unemployed

no thumb

 

Although statistics show the unemployment rate of college graduates has decreased by almost half in the past year to 4.2%, I’d like to challenge that statement. Only four people I know are graduating with legitimate jobs. Not that being a waitress or sales rep isn’t legit, but I mean graduating with careers. Most of us — myself included — are graduating with open minds and empty bank accounts. Are we worried? Only slightly. It’s okay to not have a job lined up after  graduation, I promise.

5 Apps College Students Must Have on Their SmartPhone (Spring Edition)

no thumb


If you go into Blackberry App World, the iTunes App Store, or the Droid Marketplace, you will notice there are hundreds of thousands of apps you can download for free or buy. Some people’s screens on their phones are so crowded with apps, but are all of them really used? Probably not. Unless you’re really into news, you don’t need CNN, the New York Times and your local paper’s apps all downloaded to your phone. You can check out those websites on your computer. Delete those apps from your phone, but below are five apps that college students should have.

Celebrating America (F***, Yeah)

no thumb

osama bin laden

Usually with good news comes fun celebrations. Great news brings parties…like graduations, for example. And terrorist deaths just fall under a whole different category that makes great news look like poop. But the deaths still should be a huge reason to react in celebratory actions. Last night, every major news source, the non-major news sources and president Obama announced something all Americans have been waiting to hear since September 11, 2001. Osama Bin Laden has been killed. KILLED. as in DEAD. No longer living, breathing, ruining lives.

Jack Daniels, You Make Me “That Girl”

no thumb

There is always that one person in a group of people who causes everyone else to point, stare and say “who brought the asshole?” This person could be a guy or a girl, but I must say it’s much, much worse when the proclaimed Asshole is female. Now, as a girl myself, the last thing I ever want to do is be That Girl. You know, the one who sloshes drinks on everyone she talks to…wears shoes she can’t walk in  – sober or drunk…slurs all her words and flirts with everyone including her friends and oh yeah…becomes Drama Queen 2011. Not cute.

How do you avoid becoming That Girl? You’d think it’d be so simple: just don’t get blackout and don’t act like somebody you’d soberly enjoy punching in the face. But it’s definitely easier said then done. Much easier.

Awesome Aspects of College You’ll Miss in Real Life

no thumb

We’re all college students here, so I know you’ll agree with me when I say we’re living the good life. We can pretty much do whatever we want – short of getting away with murder.

I hate to be the Debbie Downer or Party Pooper here, but with graduation just around the corner, I’ve sort of made a list in my head of all of the things you can only get away with in college that I’m going to miss since they won’t fly in the real world.

And you’re damn wrong if you don’t think I have every intention sharing my list with you right after the jump.

To Ship or Not To Ship: That Is The Question

no thumb

Unfortunately, we’re at the time of the semester where life gets kind of hectic and crazy. Whether you have less than a month left or a little more than a month left, it’s still the same news: finals aren’t too far away, things you’ve been talking about doing all semester now need official plans, and studiers abroad are coming back for the last couple of weeks of American college freedom (since they’ll have no classes).

If you’re on one of these study abroad trips then you probably already thought about how you’re going to get all of your awesome souvenirs, random things you bought and oh yeah, the stuff you originally brought with you, back to your house in the states.
