    Meet Your New Invisible Boyfriend

    It’s official. The internet has come up with everything. Now, at a computer screen near you — drum roll, please – you can  get an “invisible” boyfriend or girlfriend. You can’t make this stuff up. Don’t ask me how I found this, because I’ll never tell. But, as I entered the Invisible Boyfriend homepage, giant letters stopped me in my tracks: I was weirded ...

    The Murky Waters of the F-Word

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Kriti Vedhanayagam. I never was completely brought into the feminism camp. I grew up with a very strong willed mother who, despite her independence and higher education, never bought into the feminist movement. Throughout my years at college I have seen a frustrating amount of women touting their feminism as a badge of honor while still ...

    Culture Your Fu**ing Self

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Tampa. You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in dollar pitchers at The Hut every Saturday, or you can embrace your precious time here in Cigar City and go explore. We’ve helped you survive road trips and spring break. We supply ...

    Your Weekend Dirty Dozen

    It might be too rainy for Swamp front lawn, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start the weekend right. Grab something alcoholic, throw on this weekend’s DD and let the good times roll. Rain or shine. Featured photo courtesy of: Jolanta ...

    College Fears: The Bump ‘n’ Grind

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene editors.  Everyone is quick to tell you that college is “the best years of your life,” but it seems that no one is willing to tell you that it can be scary as fuck. You get ripped from the comfort of Mom’s bosom with no guide except the bullshit you watched on MTV and life ...

    Medicine As An Art Form

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Kriti Vedhanayagam.  In a top-tier research school like the University of Florida, the pre-med title is ubiquitous. I am one of the stereotypical pre-med majors who spend a majority of their time crying over some sort of science-related subject on the second floor of Marston. But the workload isn’t the problem. My issue is that ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken it upon ourselves ...

    Marvelous Muslim Women and Girl Power

    As we embark on this new, grand journey we call 2015, it’s only natural that we glance at the past. As we look back we reflect, we accept, we regret, we learn and we grow. The year 2014 was filled with various moments that will be forever engraved in our minds, some that we can laugh at and many we can roll ...

    Real Men Wear Scarves

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Daniel Harrison. Like every year around this time, it’s getting cold here in Gainesville. I’m not talking about the “Ooh! I need an ugly sweater and hot chocolate” type of cold, I’m talking about the “I would cry about how cold it is, but my tears are frozen” type of cold. The problem with us (yes, all ...

    Thoughtless Catalog: Voices of a Voiceless Generation

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Jordan Milian. At this point in web history, we’re all accustomed to the cultural and intellectual nadir that is BuzzFeed. The website is sometimes unfairly punished for being painfully and gut-wrenchingly stupid, but websites like Thought Catalog and Elite Daily commit the even more heinous crime of feigning depth and insight. At least with BuzzFeed, what one ...

    Instagram Artificiality: You Did Not Eat That

    Ever since Instagram invaded the social media scene in 2010, food and fashion have been at the forefront of its success. In a matter of days, everyone became a professional photographer, food stylist and fashion model. While most of us mere Insta-Mortals only post pictures of our perfectly assembled Crazy Tuna rolls or selfies in our new Urban Outfitters shirts before heading out ...

    Vital Grammar Rules for Everyday Life

    This is a guest post by GainesvilleScene’s Kriti Vedhanayagam. Dealbreakers, we all have them; some have a more extensive list than others. I pride myself on having a few basic qualities I appreciate in a man. “Nooooooo,” I groaned as I scarfed down Mochi. “What? What happened? What did he say?” my worried female friend probed. I shook my head sadly, “It’s over. ...

    Business Behind The Books

    This is a guest post by TallahasseeScene’s Casey Feindt. Let’s take a step into the past. You’re in college, but it’s the year 1975. You’re submerged in a sea of polyester, bright colors and David Bowie. You work about 20 hours a week in a pizza shop, making the minimum wage of $2.10 an hour. With your salary you have no problem paying ...
