What Guys REALLY Look for in a Girlfriend (Ladies, take notes and learn something!)

On today’s show, we talked about The Top 10 Qualities Men Are Secretly Looking For In A Girlfriend, courtesy of YourTango.com. What makes the perfect girlfriend? Is she the girl next door with gorgeous good looks and double-Ds? Well, not exactly. Contrary to what you might think, most guys aren’t looking for a supermodel. They’re just looking for their perfect match: a woman who’s down-to-earth, sweet and sensitive to his needs.

We also talked about How to Celebrate After a Final Exam, courtesy of EHow.com. A final exam can be a stressful event for many reasons: the studying, wondering if you’re answering the questions correctly, worrying about the grade you’re going to get and how that grade is going to affect your final grade for the class. When all is said and done, no matter what the result of the test is, breathe a sigh of relief that you made it through the stress and celebrate your hard work.

“WTH” WEDNESDAY

Sanford radio show taken off college station after NC Rep. complains- A Lee County community college stopped airing a radio talk show this month after a state lawmaker took issue with an online post a radio host wrote criticizing the lawmaker. A legislative assistant for State Rep. Mike Stone, wrote the president of Central Carolina Community College on April 3 asking what the school’s affiliation was with “The Rant,” a weekly radio show hosted by three former Sanford-area journalists on the college’s FM radio station WDCC, 90.5. Stone is a Sanford Republican serving his second term in the state legislature. After questioning the show’s affiliation with the college, Susan Phillips, Stone’s legislative assistant, followed up with another email the next day saying that Stone had questions about the station’s radio programming, budget and source of funding. (Click here to read that email chain.) Central Carolina Community College is one of the state’s 58 community colleges that depend on the N.C. legislature for funding.

Stone-abd-CCCC-419

Not all of the community college’s trustees felt the program should have been suspended. Tony Lett, who is serving his fourth four-year term, wrote in an email to the entire board of trustees that if Stone was so bothered by the blog post, he should have come on as a guest of the Rant radio show to talk about the bills. “I wonder if Mr. Stone has heard of our Constitution and the First Amendment concerning freedom of speech,” Lett wrote in an email sent Thursday morning. He added, “Why does he (Stone) fear criticism of the decisions he is making?”

The Definitely/Maybe of Summer Love with a Side of Bacon

-1

On today’s show, we talked about the 10 Signs You’re Definitely, Maybe in Love, courtesy of College Candy.com. Something I have always wondered for my entire adolescence is how the heck do you know when you’re in love? How do you distinguish between “puppy love” or lust or real, full blown committed love? How do we know when we’re really, truly in love? You don’t know when, you don’t know how, you don’t know why. It just happens.

Earth Day 2013, Finals Week, & the Countdown to Graduation

Rise up, West Georgia!

Embedded image permalink

On today’s show, we talked about the 6 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day, courtesy of Scholastic.com. Happy Earth Day, University of West Georgia! Although the list is more geared towards kids, some aspects of this list can be done at any age. For example, Earth Day cards? More geared towards kids. Recycling? Geared towards any and everybody.

We also talked about De-Stress for That Test: A Before and After Guide, also courtesy of Scholastic.com. In honor of the fact that it is Finals Week and mere days until graduation, this list will give advice on how to de-stress both before AND after that final. Before the test, nervousness can potentially distract you prior to— and even during a test. On the other hand, unfortunately, for some, the stress doesn’t automatically disappear once you hand in your exam — you want to know how you did, what you got right, what you got wrong.

GET IT TOGETHER: SPECIAL MONDAY EDITION

Christian couple maintains abstinence through first two years of marriage- Yes, you read the headline correctly. Let it be known that I have all the respect in the world for people who choose to wait before marriage. However, I feel that this couple’s choice to continue after marriage has me wondering, “Then why did you two decide to get married?!” All I can say is to each his own. Hell, who am I kidding… that’s a lie. Get ‘er done already!

Jon and Darla Crocker, who dutifully abstained from sex during their 14-month courtship, have remained abstinent after marriage and plan to do so indefinitely. “If it was holy before, it must be double-holy afterwards,” Darla says. They have now completed 25 months of marriage without any sexual contact, going about their normal lives, jobs and social calendar with no hint of relational strain.

Sometimes after dinner they will kiss in the kitchen and “start having bedroom thoughts,” Darla says, but they never fail to pull back. Darla breaks away to spray cool, misted water on her face. Jon eats a whole raw potato to take himself out of the mood. (Say what? Misted water? Raw potato? WHAT THE HELL?!?! Get it together, Crockers! Ain’t nobody got time for that!)

Loud Sex, Rejection, & Bacon… Not in That Order

Wakey wakey, West Georgia!

On today’s show, we talked about the 7 Times When Loud Sex Is A Really Bad Idea, courtesy of YourTango.com. Loud sex is one of those things that’s only enjoyable for the people having it. For the rest of us, it’s highly uncomfortable. Unless you’re in the middle of the forest or a cheap motel, have some respect for others and try to be discreet for goodness sakes.

7 Times When Loud Sex Is A Really Bad Idea

We also talked about the 5 Things You Shouldn’t Reject A Guy Over, courtesy of YourTango.com. You may want to rethink judging him for his less-than-cool profession or lack of style. Some women go a bit overboard in the rejection department and write off potential matches for reasons that I believe are short-sighted and irrelevant to a happy relationship.

5 Things You Shouldn't Reject A Guy Over [EXPERT]

We also talked about the 15 Men You Shouldn’t Even Bother Dating Unless You’re A Glutton For Punishment, courtesy of MadamNoire.com. People aren’t always who they appear to be. After dating a guy for a little while or after getting to know a man for a few weeks, you may realize that he isn’t exactly what you thought or expected him to be. And in the dating pool, there are definitely some men that you want to avoid dating at all costs. (Side note: Many of these can also apply to women. Just saying.)

Post-WOLFstock Motivational Monday

Rise up this morning, West Georgia!

On today’s show, we talked about How to Keep a Woman Happy According to a Bunch of Men, courtesy of CollegeCandy.com. One of the top trending topics today is #howtokeepawomanhappy. Oh really? Twitter is going to tell me how I am kept happy? Does this mean in a relationship? In life? In my workplace? What exactly does it take to keep us crazy females happy these days? I would love to know! Thankfully, the bright and ever knowledgable men of the Twitterverse seem to have it all figured out.

We also talked about the top 10 Tips For Picking Up Women, courtesy of AskMen.com. Let’s stop pretending. Picking up women is not easy. We’d like to have the confidence to walk into a bar — alone — and separate the prettiest woman from her friends and make her fall in love with us. Emphasis on “we’d like to.” We may never become experts at it, but with more experience and the right guidance, things can, at least, get easier.

Look at the time…it’s time for your updates to keep you in the know!

Countdown to Spring Break 2013

Morning, West Georgia!

On today’s show, we talked about the Must-Play Songs for Your Spring Break Road Trip, thanks to Denon Blog. When going on a road trip to your Spring Break destination, it’s important to always be prepared. Besides making sure you have enough gas in the tank of your car, having all the proper clothes, the right drinks, enough food to feed an army (a partying army, oh yeah!), the main important thing to have for a Spring Break road trip is a good sound system with awesome tunes.

We also looked at Playlists for the perfect spring break road trip, courtesy of The Washington Post. So, it’s spring break. You and your friends load up into whoever’s car can hold the most people (or travel the farthest without breaking down) and head out on the open road. The most important thing to bring along? A decent playlist. A few college journalists (with better taste in music than me) were asked to list off the 10 greatest road trip songs of all time.

As we countdown to Spring Break, we also took a look at some drink recipes, thanks to the Mixology app. As always, whether it’s Spring Break, St. Patrick’s Day, or just another Friday night, please drink responsibly! Don’t consume alcohol if you’re under the age of 21. PLEASE don’t drink and drive. Now, let’s talk some drink recipes! Here’s a few just to get you started: Super Brass Monkey, Five Star GeneralSlamma Jamma, Kryptonite, Three Wise Men & a Dirty Mexican, Black Crack

Time for your updates to keep you in the know!

Recent Korean history reveals a sobering possibility- It may only be a matter of time before North Korea launches a sudden, deadly attack on the South. And perhaps more unsettling, Seoul has vowed that this time, it will respond with an even stronger blow.

State Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling said the 16-ounce limit arbitrarily applies to only some sugary beverages and to some places that sell them.

Vick’s book tour canceled- Michael Vick’s book-signing tour has been canceled because of threats against him for running a dogfighting ring.
