By Charlotte Mooney
April 19, 2014 - 12:00pm

Despite the stereotype that the best part of the Disney fairytales is the beautiful princess, I find myself drawn to the mysterious and (for the most part) undeveloped characters of the villains.  But thanks to the new movie Maleficent that focuses on the backstory of Sleeping Beauty’s wicked witch, we get to dive into the past of one of the greatest untold stories of fantasy. In light of the new movie, which is due for release in May, I revisited the classic animated film and I have got to say, Maleficent is a straight-up boss. Sleeping Beauty is probably my favorite Disney princess movie, (sorry Ariel, but no one’s hair looks like that underwater. Stop being so unrealistic) and I think it might be because of this vengeful creature....

  Thursday has rolled around yet again and it’s time to reminisce. So lets “throw it back” to high school. High school, oh high school, how little we miss thee. Early mornings, trivial homework, unnecessary drama…the list could go on. But no matter how great college has been to us, there are a few things we can admit to missing. So bring on the memories and #tbt to what we do and don’t miss about our high school years.   What We Miss: 1. The Minimal Effort Required READ MORE

As we progress further and further into the social media age, it is important for everyone—not just those involved in the communications field—to take advantage of social media. It’s useful to keep in contact with family, friends, and of course, getting your daily dose of current events. This 140-character form of social media is excellent for many reasons, but mainly because it’s succinct and often entertaining. Think of Twitter as a never-ending stream of Facebook statuses in less than 140 characters. Here are five Twitter feeds that every collegiate should follow: READ MORE

Strong is the New Sexy

  I don’t know where or when we got the idea that lifting weights would make us bulky but that LIE has been halting our progress for probably centuries now. Had we’d been spending as much time bench-pressing as we do on the elliptical, we’d all be much happier girls. While we were wasting time doing the squat/ab/leg challenge, those chicks in the weight room were getting our dream bodies by lifting heavy weights. The fact is, as women we simply don’t produce nearly enough testosterone to get bulky so all those female bodybuilders we see with an enormous amount of muscle mass have gotten it via steroids, not from simply lifting.

Mad about Mad Men

Do you crave television shows with drama, scandals and romance? Want to time-warp back into the 1960s? Most importantly-- do you love Jon Hamm? If you can successfully concur with all of these questions, you should be watching Mad Men. Mad Men takes place in New York City in the 1960s, following the life of Donald Draper (Jon Hamm) and his role as director of the creative department at the swanky advertising agency, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Although a great deal of the show explores the advertising industry during this era in American history, what really makes the show addicting are the provocative affairs that take place after work hours.

By Shannon Stocks

There is no denying it: the How I Met Your Mother finale was hardly satisfactory. Whether you are up to date with the show or not, you were probably hoping that the episode would be focused on, well, meeting the mother. Spoiler alert: illness, death, and divorce should rarely be involved in comedies. The following are some shows I would recommend if you are trying to get that sour taste of HIMYM out of your mouth. 1. The Mindy Project READ MORE
