Last week, Playboy Magazine announced the top 25 party universities in the country, and the UA was dubbed the fifth best party school. Instead of experiencing a rush of embarrassment, some students consider it an ""honor"" to attend a wild university, even though these same students don't realize that Playboy isn't doing the UA any favors. By adding us to this atrocious ranking, Playboy is telling the country that the UA is made up of spoiled, promiscuous, irresponsible, moronic students who are only good for the insanity they bring to university life.

I've recently had a recurring dream that most UA students would consider a nightmare. I wake up in my Villa del Puente dorm room, where I lived last year, and all my current upperclassman anxieties have vanished. I can even envision the intricacy of my old roommate's custom-made hot pink bedspread and authentic brown pillow from Paris. All is well because I'm re-living my favorite year at UA.
For a president that many absurdly equate with Jesus Christ, it's a shock that Barack Obama has been snubbed by two of the three universities he plans to visit for graduation.
In the higher education world, there's not much for students to be upset about, at least for those who can afford it. When I hear about students who pay for every cent of their college degree, I feel bad about agonizing over my homework load, especially since my 30-year-old sister-in-law just finished paying off her student debts.
How many people got hired in January 2009? The number could probably be counted on two hands, but one of those people was Meghan McCain, daughter of 2008 presidential candidate Sen. John McCain. Meghan has been running the McCain Blogette since 2007, but earlier this year, she landed a blog on the online Daily Beast, and she isn't broadcasting GOP pride.
""I'm not here to be your babysitter,"" Professor Timmons told his Personal Morality students in spring 2007.
The UA campus is beginning to remind me of a horror film.
There's no one more apathetic about sports, much less the Olympics, than me. At 20 years old, I still don't understand the rules of baseball or most group sports. Whenever the crowd screams after something happens during Wildcat football games, I shamelessly ask the person beside me, ""Is that good?!""
Are you in need of another Arizona Wildcats t-shirt? The University of Arizona Bookstores and local Wal-marts are no longer the only places to find one. Wherever you are in the world, you can now order University of Arizona clothing on the Victoria's Secret Web site (I apologize to the male audience, unless you're petite and unrepentant Victoria's Secret shoppers).
Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away, but all the merchandise has been in stores since the beginning of January, when it was time to take down all the faux Christmas trees and turn off ""Jingle Bells."" Safeway employees have long-since-stocked the candy shelves with pink and red M&M;'s bags, and customers can't miss the cheesy Disney Valentine's Day cards by the store's front entrance. The much-anticipated romantic comedy, ""He's Just Not That Into You,"" hits theaters this Friday, and all the single women who need to take the film title as advice will go out and see the movie, only to forget the moral message and continue agonizing about being single and chasing after undeserving men.
""Misery loves company.""
Most waiters and waitresses share a similar behavior pattern. They ""over-tip"" at restaurants for the same reason: They ""know how much it sucks to work in the restaurant business."" In exchange for being patient with nasty customers and acrobatically balancing multiple plates on their arms, waiters expect an impressive tip in addition to their minimum wage paycheck.
One of my classes was canceled in honor of inauguration day, and I wouldn't be surprised if Jan. 20 becomes a national holiday. Those of you reading a hard copy of this article probably didn't make it to Washington, D.C., but you can still enjoy the today's events. From your television, you can witness the results of a $150 million inauguration budget, which may be the most expensive United States inauguration to date.
President-elect Barack Obama is about to be sworn in as the next United States president, so it makes sense that he is mentioned in several news stories a day. Journalists write about his political plans, but this week alone, two stories about his personal habits have been published. We learned on Jan. 10 that Obama enjoyed a ""terrific"" chili dog and basket of cheese fries at Ben's Chili Bowl restaurant in Washington, D.C. The story was cute, but pointless, and it left me craving unhealthy food.
The break is over, and most students probably had homework due Monday, meaning they had to devote ""break"" time to dense reading, busywork and finals preparation. No one ever said college would be easy, or that the academic world goes on hold for the holidays, but it's disheartening that one of the few breaks during the semester cannot be even remotely relaxing.
In two days, it'll be socially acceptable to gorge yourself until New Year's and gain weight, which will take effort to lose. People tend to worry less about what they eat this time of year, and the holiday season also provides an excuse to drink more alcohol.
""He was really cool, but he smokes, so it would never work out,"" said my friend a month ago. She met a nice classmate at a party, but all bets were off when he pulled a pack of Marlboros out of his jean pocket. Even though they had a long, engaging conversation, she decided he wasn't worth any further consideration because he was a smoker.
""Never judge a book by its cover.""
Unless the losing candidate decides to throw a tantrum and demand a recount like in the 2000 election, we should know who the next president is by Wednesday morning. We already have an idea of who it'll be based on the frustration of United States citizens.
Midterms are back during arguably the hardest month of the semester, so it's time to claim an open table in the library and various coffee shops for study purposes. If you're overwhelmed by the amount of work you have, you're probably not in the mood to be interrupted while you're in the academic zone, but if you're good-natured as most Tucsonans seem to be, you'll chat with whomever approaches you for at least a few minutes.
