There are a lot of movies about college. Animal House. Old School. The list goes on... But I think there are three glaring lies being perpetrated by these three college movies. I will not let it stand.
THE LIE: Not only will your dorm allow pets, but you'll be able to fit a Stairmaster in your room. Oh, and you can install a giant sunset mural on your wall, too.
THE TRUTH: The closest thing to a pet that I've had is when two pigeons took up residence in my room while I was getting sloshed at a Seder dinner with my friend Daniel.
THE LIE: If you're looking for a boyfriend, look no further than the custodial staff.
THE TRUTH: If you're looking for a boyfriend, look no further than the prof that teaches the landslides unit in EOSC 114.
THE MOVIE: The Social Network
THE LIE: You've probably seen it. Bunch of kids in a study room, jotting down logarithms (real talk, had no idea how to spell "logarithms" until today) on the windows with dry-erase markers. Lot's of late nights. Lots of caffeine.
THE TRUTH: Instead of coming up with stuff like Facebook, last year at UBC we got Peeked Interest which consisted of people taking creeper shots of people they thought were babe-like in hopes of hooking up with them later. My friend Emma landed on the site. She just thought it was creepy, because it was. They're "re-launching" the site. Allegedly.
Although, maybe I'm really just bitter that Luke Wilson isn't a TA at my school.
