Guy Ruins His Chances With Date Because He Can't Believe 'Psychology' Is A College Major

Guy Ruins His Chances With Date Because He Can't Believe 'Psychology' Is A College Major

If I could go back and do it all over again, I probably wouldn’t have gone to college. Either that or I would’ve gone about it much, much differently.

First off, I wouldn’t have started off majoring in business to make my father happy, and I would’ve re-applied to my first choice school like my original interviewer suggested, instead of just comfortably staying in the university I wound up at.

I definitely would’ve taken my major more seriously and not just settled for the fact that I could easily “pass” classes and give the teacher what they wanted instead of actually fighting to give myself an education that made me happy. I know, idealistic, youthful, cheesy stuff, but what’s wrong with cheese? Cheese is awesome. I would’ve definitely walked around campus more with my group of multi-ethnic friends while posing for the university mailer pamphlet, too.

Because I didn’t work hard enough to forge a direction for myself early on, I am always super impressed with people who know or at least seem to know what career they want to pursue from a young age.

Which is why this Snapchat conversation between two people who seem to be in the nascient stages of getting to know each in a romantic capacity is so hilarious, because they couldn’t possibly be more polar opposites.

It all begins with our friend, Lit Lord (last part of name blurred).

image

It begins innocuously enough – he asks our poster what they’re studying in school. Our screenshotter answers him and he responds with what appears to be a joke.

But we quickly find out that it’s not a joke.

image

We’ve come across a man who believes that being a psychopath is a major in school, because they’ve never heard of studying psychology as a major. And he’s trying to date someone who clearly knows what they want to do with their life and seems to be serious about the path they’ve chosen.

Our screenshotter is convinced that he’s still pulling their chain. But he makes it clear he isn’t.

image

He laughs the whole thing off, but our Psych major isn’t letting go.

Believe it or not, the conversation gets worse.

image

Lit Lord admits to not having any idea what psychology is. The man apparently has never even heard the word before! He chalks it up to not knowing anything about college, but then again, one doesn’t need to attend college to know what “psychology” means.

He does his best to explain where he’s coming from, but our Psych major just isn’t having it.

image

At the very least he’s heard of “reverse psychology” and tries to offer that up as an opportunity to reach some common ground and understanding. But our screenshotter is just too flabbergasted that they’re texting with someone who has never even heard what “psychology” is.

They decide to let Lit Lord down easy and tell them they’re probably not compatible.

image

Which Lit Lord thinks is weird and petty, because he isn’t trying to study when he’s not in school. Guess he missed psychology word day in class.

Lit Lord can hold his head up high though, because he totally shows our psych major at the end.

image

How does she expect everyone she’s potentially going to date to know about the intricacies of the word psychology?

What’s insane is that Lit Lord leaves the conversation none the wiser. He hasn’t bettered himself, he doesn’t know anything else. All he’s discovered is that he’s unwanted after investing a certain amount of time, and he has no idea why.

Actually, it sounds like he totally went to college.

This Woman Is Regretting Buying Something Hilarious At A College Party

We’ve all done something that we’ve regretted in college. But that’s okay, because college is probably the last chance at being young and free that you’re going to get. And over the weekend, Twitter user Annie Swartz of Texas Tech did something that probably seemed like a good idea at the time, and would probably be considered an equally great idea by many people, day or night. 

Swartz is well known for finding all the animals at parties. Whether it be a chicken or a puppy. 

But over the weekend, Swartz went way too far when she found one animal. 

Yes, she purchased a goat. No, she doesn’t still want the goat now that the party is over.

Somehow, this is a relatable tweet for some people. 

Others were just wondering how someone can accidentally buy a goat. Or why this is a problem. 

People really like goats, apparently. 

A lot of people seem to think this will happen to them. 

Would you accidentally buy a goat?

This College Student Went Viral For Having A Last Name That's Hard To Wedding Hashtag

Fear of not being able to have an adorable wedding hashtag is real, and the sum of those fears is here. I present: college student Steven Kleinschmidt. 

Kleinschmidt joins me and many other cursed souls in having a last name that doesn’t exactly conjure romance.

But other Twitter users started thinking up some actually ingenious hashtags. 

Including lots of “smitten” puns, which Kleinschmidt told BuzzFeed were his favorite. “Everything else was clever but nothing you’d ever really use for a wedding hashtag,” he said. 

What, Steven, you don’t think these would make good wedding hashtags?

Muslim Teen Writes About Black Lives Matter In College App, Gets Into Stanford

Muslim Teen Writes About Black Lives Matter In College App, Gets Into Stanford

I don’t remember what I wrote for my college applications, but it was definitely a handwritten mess. I recapped the plot to Fight Club, talking about the plot of the book like it was the most revelatory thing that’s ever been written in the modern era.

Sure, Brad Pitt’s obliques had a lot to do with why I’d initially become so obsessed with Chuck Palahniuk’s book in the first place, and I kind of cringe when I look back at what I was obsessed with back then as an angsty teen, clinging to anything that could be viewed as “edgy.” But as stupid as that essay was, I do remember writing it with a lot of feeling. As deluded as I was when I wrote it, I definitely believed in what I was doing.

I guess I thought I was making some kind of grand political statement that ended up not paying off. Like, at all. The truth was, I wasn’t really all that excited to go to college, mainly because I was put off by how expensive it was. I also didn’t want to settle for a school that wasn’t my first choice. There are times, however, where I wonder what would’ve happened had I gotten accepted to Yale, or if I never attended college at all.

But this teen’s risky college statement to Stanford, which asked the question, “What matters to you, and why?” paid off in a huge way.

Ziad Ahmed, a high school senior at Princeton Day School, decided that he would extend his passion for activism into every aspect of his life, including his college applications. While most students would fold under the pressure and probably submit another McEssay that highlights a story about a time they did something meaningful (and a chance to rattle off how amazing they are), Ziad demonstrated his amazingness by taking a huge risk and showing how seriously he takes his activism.

“I was actually stunned when I opened the update and saw that I was admitted,” Ziad said in an interview with Mic.

“I didn’t think I would get admitted to Stanford at all, but it’s quite refreshing to see that they view my unapologetic activism as an asset rather than a liability.”

Ziad received tons of praise from other notable Muslim activists and his tweet has been liked over 5,000 times.

The young student went on to say that his Muslim faith compels him to be a social activist, and that turning a blind eye to the issues that African-Americans face on a daily basis goes against his religious upbringing.

“To me, to be Muslim is to be a BLM ally, and I honestly can’t imagine it being any other way for me. Furthermore, it’s critical to realize that one-fourth to one-third of the Muslim community in America are black … and to separate justice for Muslims from justices for the black community is to erase the realities of the plurality of our community.”

If Ziad looks familiar, it’s because the 18-year-old has already been acknowledged on a National level for all of his activism.

He’s given a TedxTalk about the stereotypes Muslim teens face, was invited to the White House’s Iftar Dinner, was put in charge of Martin O’Malley’s youth presidential campaign, and worked for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign as an intern. Not to mention, he’s already founded two youth organizations and has been accepted to Princeton and Yale, in addition to Stanford.
