I spent countless hours working in the business office of The Daily Campus and never thought to write something until well after I graduated. Thankfully, half of my inner circle still works at the paper so here I am dropping takes.

Teatoxes:

Why drink foul smelling tea for weeks straight when you could go out for Mexican food one time and receive the same outcome? If you are spending money on these nasty concoctions just to lose two pounds, do less. You are the only person who notices your little tummy roll anyway.

Brangelina:

Did Angelina Jolie really think karma would be on her side when she slept with Jennifer Aniston’s husband? Jennifer is an angel sent straight from heaven. Furthermore, Angelina should know that if a guy cheats WITH you, he will also cheat ON you. The Brangelina divorce was inevitable and the phrase “sorry not sorry” has never been more applicable.

If you aren’t incorporating your bitmoji into at least 50 percent of your texts, wake up. Your bitmoji is most likely the prettier, cooler, more interesting version of you. Why bitmoji hasn’t replaced texting entirely is beyond me, but I’m optimistic that it can still happen.

Pam from The Office:

If Jim wasn’t such an adorable TV husband, no one would like Pam. She is the most vanilla character on The Office and it’s not close. No one’s favorite character from The Office is Pam. She rarely tells jokes and I think she wears the same sneakers as my dad. She’s plain, boring and unambitious.

Jeans:

Why would you wear jeans when you could not wear jeans? We are blessed to be alive in 2016 because leggings are now considered pants. Squirming your way into a pair of suffocating skinny jeans is dreadful. Leggings are essentially a cloud hugging your legs. Leggings are NOT a sign of laziness. They are a sign of intelligence.
