The Fluffington Post

procrastinators guide

So you’re a news junkie, constantly checking for the next breaking story instead of doing, y’know, work stuff.

All that doom-and-gloom news can start to weigh a little heavy on your mind, so it’s good to throw in some light-hearted fare, and there’s no site quite as perfect for that as The Fluffington Post. Billing itself as “The #1 news source for breaking news and investigative journalism FLUFFY ANIMALS,” the Post is the ultimate source of cute animal pictures and hard-hitting news stories like “Puppy is nervous about first day of day care” and “Cat and Dog kiss on a dare.”

If you have one animal in particular that fills your heart with joy, they have tabs to sort out Puppies, Kitties, Bunnies, Birdies, Rodentia, Menagerie and, my personal favorite, Petflix! You’re even able to submit your own pictures and stories to spread some cute to the entire world.

So take a break from Huffington, and turn instead to Fluffington. You’ll thank me later.

We Are the Preppiest

Finally, a college ranking that makes sense. After Georgetown was profiled as one of the ten most hipster colleges in the country, we have now made the cut as one of the preppiest colleges in the country as well, according to The Huffington Post. And how couldn’t we? Even as I write this post in the ICC, I see at least four girls clutching Vineyard Vines bags, three people wearing Sperry’s, and even more preppy scarves, coats and boots.

The Huffington Post points out that our surroundings are conducive to the preppiness as well. Georgetown, after all, is frequented by the very people that we as prepsters try to become — Senators, Presidents, D.C. socialites, etc. — and by the stores where we as prepsters love to shop, including Vineyard Vines, Lacoste and Rugby.

So what’s the most telling sign of our preppiness? The Huffington Post notes that “all it takes is one trip to The Tombs … to realize students here like to imagine they’re living in a real life version of the Social Network.” Is it possible, then, that we are too preppy?

Other schools that made the cut included the University of Virginia, Boston College, Wheaton College, Cornell, Ohio State and Alabama.
