Grad Student Majors in Life Delay

grad studentAfter much contemplation, newly enrolled graduate student, Rick Grable, has decided to major in Life Delay. While the specific program is fairly new to the college that wishes to be anonymous, the foundation from which it was created has been around for some time.

The program consists of a core curriculum of electives, an online bartenders course, and a weekly one-on-one session with a professional psychiatrist.

“I was going to major in business or economics, but I figured they’d just bore me and I don’t even know if that’s what I want to do,” said Grable. “Now that I’ve found the perfect curriculum, I can focus on delaying the inevitable mundane life that awaits me, without having to explain to my ex-girlfriend that this is the best I can do.”

Like most Ivy League colleges, the program steers clear of “grades,” instead relying heavily on attendance and outrageous tuition fees.

“We feel the student should surround himself with a constant state of delay, and should continue his or her studies as long as is financially possible,” says Dean Prager.

Given the instant popularity of the program, the anonymous college is already laying out plans for its Master’s Program.

Spoiled Bitch Unhappy with Job Situation

angryworkerFor the third straight day this week, twenty-three year old Rachel Blum complained to her roommate about her stupid Marketing Coordinator job, where she barely makes $40,000 a year. The Michigan native has been out of college for just over a year now and can’t believe how dumb everyone is that works with her, and how much of a retard her boss is.

Rachel has a Marketing degree from Michigan State University and was recommended for the Marketing Coordinator position by her father, who knows the CEO of the top 5 ad agency from his fraternity days. She currently resides in a $3500/month two bedroom apartment on the 9th floor of a luxury building, situated in the heart of Manhattan’s Murray Hill district.

“It’s like I work my ass off everyday and I can barely afford to go to brunch on Sundays,” said Rachel. “And now I have to actually put away money if I even want to go to my friend Sarah’s birthday in New Orleans this year.”

Rachel’s typical day of work consists of contacting online advertising options, facebook, crafting semi-legible e-mails, Twitter, texting her girlfriends, and shopping online. Through her first year of work, she’s only missed a total of fifteen days – not counting holidays, birthdays, and weddings.

“To be honest, I’m not sure what she does on a typical day,” said one of Rachel’s superiors. “Some days she looks pretty hot though, and I think she hooked up with Ted from creative.”

Rachel has contemplated moving back to Michigan, but isn’t sure she can stand moving back in with her annoying parents after experiencing New York City. She’s also considering other job options, but doesn’t know people like everyone else in the fucking city. One thing she is sure of, she would never stoop so low as to work in retail. After all, she has a college degree.

Area Man Comparable to Iconic Character Thanks to Simple Algorithm

area man surveyIn a recent online survey, an area man searching for purpose while killing time at his dead end job, discovered that he’s most closely comparable to an iconic character that you and I have heard of – thanks to a simple algorithm created by a reasonably average computer programmer. The character isn’t necessarily someone that we see on a day to day basis, but he or she is definitely someone that we’ve seen on a screen at some point in time.

It’s not certain whether it was a television show or classic film…or maybe he or she was from a novel? Nevertheless, this recent discovery has sparked almost fifteen minutes of temporary joy for the man, providing him with the ability to share the news with close to 200 friends via social media.

“It’s so funny, because I always thought of myself as another similar character, but not this specific character,” said the man, sipping his second large coffee of the morning. “I wonder if other people see me as this character as opposed to the one I was thinking of.”

While no one has “liked” or commented on the newsflash, the man expects his closest friends have, at the very least, read the news and perhaps even filled out the survey themselves, so that they too can have this brief moment of sedated enthusiasm.

Research Proves Not One Actual Fan of Music at Coachella

coachella

After surveying the masses at this past weekend’s Week 1 of the annual music festival, Coachella, it has been concluded that there is not one actual fan of music at the entire event. Not one. The results were found upon basic testing, which included naming a few of the bands in the lineup, knowing a verse from any of the songs played, or owning (or even having downloaded illegally) one song of any particular band on the lineup.

Given the nature and popularity of the event notorious for its musical talents, it’s hard to fathom that not one attendee has even the slightest appreciation for music.

“This is the most fun I’ve ever had,” said an attractive 20-something female, sporting a headband of feathers and Ray-Bans. “I’ve been getting like over 100 likes on all my Instagram posts. I bet this is exactly what people felt like at Woodstock.”

As Week 2 of the event begins this weekend, further research is underway as to whether or not anyone at the festival has an actual, real job.
