I Call Bullshit, Asher Roth. College Is NOT That Awesome.

(I hate when celebrities make things sound cool that are totally shit. Like college. And dumping a bucket of ice on yourself.)

I start back to school in less than a week, and I think my body is staging an internal revolt. I literally was asleep from Sunday afternoon to yesterday (Tuesday) evening, which either means I’m dying or I have an iron deficiency. Regardless, I don’t wanna go back.

If you’re familiar with Asher Roth’s song “I Love College”, you’ll probably agree that there is NO POSSIBLE WAY you can have that much fun and still get good grades. It’s funny because I read on Wikipedia that he was going to West Chester (that’s sort of near me) for Elementary Education (I’m Secondary Education and English) and our major is like especially difficult. Pennsylvania really has a boner for education majors, probably because our governor is a douche. (Editor’s Note: We had a different governor in 2014.)

Anyone who actually tries at good grades will tell you Asher Roth is a dickhead, and that’s why I’m calling bullshit on this one.

(Also, why are all these young white rappers from Pennsylvania? Meek Mill, Mac Miller, Asher Roth… seriously. You can look it up.) (Editor’s Note #2: Meek Mill is not white, my apologies.)

On a side note, I really think the whole “Ice Bucket Challenge” thing is nonsense. No offense if you’re into that, but I’d rather just donate the $100 instead of jumping on yet another social media bandwagon and giving myself hypothermia.

(I don’t even have a bucket.)

On the bright side, my friends and family know me enough that I haven’t been “challenged”. They realize I’d kill them if they tried. “How about I come to your house and pour a bucket of dry ice on you?” And I totally would.

Plus, I’m a Catholic, and although I don’t go to church every single Sunday or abstain from premarital sex, I maintain some beliefs. Here’s an interesting article about it.

“Any treatment which claims to save human lives, yet is based upon the destruction of human life in its embryonic state, is logically and morally contradictory…” -St. John Paul II

You can agree or not, I don’t care. I’m not condemning anyone. It’s just my opinion. All I know is that if someone tries to tell me to dump a bucket of ice on myself and videotape it, I’m going to have a fucking fit.

White Girls Be Like

Hey there, I'm Alanna. I can't give you my last name for legal reasons, but you probably won't pronounce it right anyway. This is a blog about various occurrences in my life and also some of my thoughts and feelings about things, otherwise known as "what white girls be like". It's true. We be like... "Cats, Lana del Rey, Coors Light, and Twitter". If you disagree, please comment and tell me to shut up. Otherwise, enjoy! :)

        1. See, I wish I had majored in something that didn’t require my soul. Also, teaching in Pennsylvania is like… some analogy like trying to prove time travel. Idk. It’s really hard to get into. I’m having trouble getting an internship at the worst inner-city school in Harrisburg. I might just give up at this point and go apply to my catholic high school because as long as you’re willing to give up benefits and a pension, you’re in.

          1. My didn’t require my soul or an internship. I wish that my school made a better effort to get us internships and jobs, but they were perfectly happy taking our money in exchange for not helping us become productive members of society.

        1. Will do!!! And yes, the future of being an English major horrifies me like nothing else. Also, Microsoft Word tells me that it’s “aficionado” but that looks like Spanish or possibly Italian so I question the validity of spell-check.
