How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

He breathed hard and leaned against the side of the banister. Blood smeared the cold metal, and he knew he was not long for this world…not in this form anyway. He had watched his entire family, and all of his friends disappear, lost. They were gone forever, and he could do nothing to stop it, but that doesn’t matter now. Escaping matters keep running, keep hiding. Death was inevitable, but he was not ready, not for this. However, on this day, Jason did not have a choice. Jason was wounded, tired, and on the verge of shock. Then they came. Walkers, the living dead, stinkers, whatever names you gave for them, they are what they are. Zombies!

The Apocalypse is coming. Don’t be like Jason. Read More…

Unbore me Chris; I’m Sober Today!

It’s Saturday. You wake up, the sun is shining through the window pane and a gentle breeze brushes your face gently, waking you up from the deepest sleep. Mmmm, doesn’t that seem peaceful? No, it doesn’t. You know why? Because you decided it was a good idea to spend six hours last night doing jager bombs, whiskey shots, and some other things that didn’t smell quite right, but your friends made fun of you, so you took them anyway.

Now what did Timmy do wrong here? (In this particular scenario, the subjects name is Timmy). Well aside from the mystery shot, he forgot the main thing college students forget.

10 Tips In Hindsight From A Senior

I have been in school since the grand year of 2006.  In this “short” amount of time, I have learned quite a few things.  For instance, don’t drink liquors that don’t taste like they have alcohol in them; don’t use alarms with easily accessible snooze buttons, or the ever so popular, always knock entering your dorm room, even if you think your roommate is gone. *cringe*

Finishing up this December, I look back and understand a lot of things now, like why I did badly in certain classes, why I did well in others and more importantly how to keep your productivity up without your motivation going down.   This will be a brief overview of everything that has helped me throughout college.  We can safely say I have violated most of these.

How To Combat Social Media Overload

Before I begin, I would like to emphasize the fact that social media is a good thing. It has helped bring together those that would otherwise never speak, or keep friendships and relationships in tact that could have never happened without it. However, social media takes a toll, and unless managed well it can consume its users.

There are many social sites out there. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google+(soon) seem to be the big ones. Each have their benefits Read More…
