Walmart touts itself as the "one-stop shopping experience" that handles any and all customer's needs. Whether you're looking for groceries, toys, gardening supplies or even weapons, not only can you find it at Walmart but you can probably pick it up for pretty cheap, too. This huge variety of products is what attracts so many people of different backgrounds and walks of life to Walmart.

With such a diverse population visiting Walmart, it's only natural that you'll see weird, crazy or hilarious goings-on while you're just shopping for a new TV. We've all seen families fighting, but sometimes people go a bit farther with their Walmart shenanigans. But why? Why is Walmart the breeding ground for weird happenings while places like Target generally attract a less-rambunctious crowd?

cnn.com

One reason that might explain this is the placement of Walmart locations. While Walmart stores can be found everywhere throughout the U.S., oftentimes they're the only place people can go to buy what they need in lower-income or less-populated areas. In the south especially, this can attract customers who might be more eye-catching than the normal superstore patron.

The cost of Walmart's products also might attract more typically dysfunctional families who take advantage of the company's Rollback program to get the best deals. Walmart really slashes the prices on a lot of good items on a weekly basis, so it's hard to blame people for shopping there. But you'll often see people who just don't have the ability to take care of themselves for financial reasons.

Because of its size, Walmart is also a haven for shoplifters. I'm sure we've all been strolling out of a Walmart to find some poor, unlucky soul being put into the back of a cop car and figured that he or she had tried to take something. Many people think that because of how big Walmart is, employees will overlook them and they'll be able to grab whatever they want. Not always the case.

Sometimes, particularly... interesting Walmart shoppers will come in and do something completely weird, crazy or hilarious. Luckily, a lot of these happenings have been caught on camera. Let's take a look at some of the strangest Walmart occurrences in pictures.

People are able to do incredible things. Many people are just risk takers and love to take on a good challenge. This is what explains daredevils who risk their very lives doing something that seems silly to most just to get a rush.

I mean, regardless of if you are wanting to make it over Niagara Falls in a barrel (not even sure why anyone would want to do that but whatever) or if you want to see how much pain you can handle when it comes to your private parts (yes, more details on that later), daredevils all have one thing in common. They love to take risks, and they love the feeling of a good rush!

There really is no set definition for the term “daredevil." It is just a certain type of person who thrives and lives off of taking risks and taking on challenges that most people would not even consider doing. Like this one guy who is said to have “balls of steel." While that may sound just awful to some of you, we actually think it's true after watching this video.

youtube.com

He basically allows people to do whatever it is they want with his, ahem, balls and he endures the pain…somehow. I mean, the video starts out with a big bang when a guy takes a hammer to his private area numerous times…and the guy just stands there like it's no big deal. What the heck!

He then places a brick in between his legs and the guy takes another whack with his hammer. At one point in the video, he even gets run over by a vehicle. Honestly, his reaction to that one actually looks like he felt a bit of pain. Can't blame him, really.

A guy then climbs up on a ladder as the risk taker lies on the ground on his back. The guy then jumps off the ladder onto his stomach and then runs away. Like, just for fun. It's also kind of funny because this daredevil has a group of what look like fans there to cheer him on and support him. It looks like these people are creating their own version of entertainment and it's pretty hysterical.

Up next, this crazy man breaks countless glass bottles that are each sitting on a brick. Ouch. That's all I have to say about that. By countless, we mean there were at least 50 of them. I just don't even understand!

He then balances two motorcycles on his shoulders as someone just stands there counting how long he does it. That part of the video stopped at 42 seconds but it looks like he held them there for longer than that. They then tie a man, yes an actual man, to a piece of material and the crazy guy holds the material in his mouth. I mean, he's lifting a human by his full body weight in his freaking mouth. How?

While we may never understand how daredevils do the things they do, you must admit, it is pretty impressive to watch!

We've all had those mornings when we've woken up and been too drunk to remember what happened the night before, yikes. Below people share some of the funniest, craziest, and just downright strange things drunk people have done or said in their presence...

15."Had to convince my friend not to jump in the pool because he thought "This water is 2016 water, I gotta jump before it becomes 2017 water!"

It wasn't even a pool party."

 

14.  "My girlfriend started puking, and between outbursts says 'At least this is all good wine, it doesn't taste so bad coming up!'"

13. "We had a bunch of friends over at our house last night for the new year's celebration. It was starting to wind down and a group of them were having trouble finding a cab home. So one of them passes out on the couch because the wait had been over two hours.

Finally when a cab is hailed, another friend rushes inside to wake up the girl to get her. My GF and I are saying goodbye to everyone at the door. She groggily stumbles over and begins to say goodbye to my GF. "So nice to see you guys, I had a great time. You guys should come over more, don't worry about the coat, we can meet up tomorrow and figure it all out."

"Yeah no problem we had a great time too! We'll talk tomorrow." She stands there in a blanket.

"Yeah, hope you guys come again. Again, we'll figure out the coats tomorrow. I'm going back to bed right now."

"Uhhhh" I start to clue in, "we live here, you're the one leaving."

"Oh." So she starts to put on some shoes at the door from the pile.

"I don't think those are your shoes, do you remember what you wore here?" She looks down and stood trying to fit into small shoes. She then moves to a red cup on the floor and sticks her foot in it. At this point I'm dying laughing, " I don't think you wore that either"

"Oh this is embarrassing" I think she walked away with our blanket too..."

For those of you who are brave enough to go out in the wee hours of the early morning after a Thanksgiving food coma, Black Friday is a big part of the American holiday season. Yes, you run the risk of being trampled in a stampede in front of Walmart, but you get access to some of the craziest discounts and best sales of the year to get a jump on your holiday shopping. So if you have the retail stamina to join the hordes of Black Friday this year, here is a list of a few things to keep in mind to plan and get a jump start on your shopping antics.

black friday

General

  • Friday November 25, 2016 is the official date of Black Friday with many stores opening their doors around 5am or 6am
  • Thursday November 24, 2016 is when Black Friday really starts (Grey Thursday) with many apparel and technology retailers starting sales as early as 3pm on Thanksgiving and running into the early morning on Friday (I will be fast asleep in a food coma at this hour)
  • Major retailers mean major deals. If you're looking for the biggest price cuts, start at the biggest, chain retailers of all departments rather than specialty stores.
  • The best deals will be on big ticket items.
  • Download all the aps, follow everyone on social media. This year we will see Black Friday retailers relying heavily on their mobile aps and social media offerings, so be sure to download them and take full advantage of exclusive coupons, deals, and information before the general public.
  • Only shop the deals. Black Friday is tricky, and as a Retail major, I know all the sneaky little tricks that these stores will have ready to make you spend. Go in with a budget, get what you came for, and only shop the sales that are really sales and not just regular items emblazoned with Black Friday signage and ads.

Apparel & Accessories

  • The best apparel and accessories deals will be at anchor stores like J.C. Penney, Belk, Dicks, Macy's, and Neiman Marcus.
  • J.C. Penney will have a $10 of $10 or more (hello, almost free stuff).
  • High end retailers like Saks Fifth Ave, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus will see the lowest prices on their luxury items including boots and sweaters and cashmere products.
  • Express and Banana Republic will offer major savings with early hours on Black Friday -- also great if your shopping for internship clothes.
  • Bass Pro Shops is going to have huge discounts on apparel and sporting gear and accessories, and even home furnishings. It is not usually one you think about, but will offer major deals.
  • Ulta will offer significant holiday deals and bundles on their products. Do not miss out on hair tools sales and huge price cuts on high end makeup and brands.

Technology & Gaming

  • Technology retailers like GameStop, Verizon, and Best Buy will offer huge savings starting late on Thursday including entire gaming systems and bundles with games, systems, and available software.
  • PS4 and Xbox deals will be at Walmart, Target, and Best Buy.
  • GameStop and Toys R Us will likely have BOGO 50% on top games like Madden NHL 2016, Assassin's Creed, with older games going for as much as 80% off.
  • LED and 4K TV models will be a hot commodity this year at retailers lie Walmart and Best Buy offering deep discounts.
  • The best deals of Tablets will likely be from Android from retailers like Target and Amazon.
  • Dell and HP will likely hold flash sales offering deep discounts on laptops alongside retailers like Walmart and Best Buy. Still, the best deals for dirt cheap laptops will be on slightly older models.
  • There will likely be deals on the iPhone 6 and 6s, but the more competitive sales and prices will be from Android.
  • Beats by Dre have consistently low prices on Black Friday
  • Black Friday is the best time to purchase digital cameras because comparatively low prices will come with free accessories like an extra memory card or a free carrying case.

Toys

  • While these prices are slashed on Black Friday, they'll be on sale again closer to the holidays. The thing is, they sell out, so make sure to get them first.
  • Toy sales will be closely linked to video game and movie releases, so watch out for special bundles and free accessories with a purchase.
  • Toys R Us is a sure bet, but Target will also have huge Black Friday sales on kids' toys.
  • Amazon has compiled a list of the top 100 most popular toys and set up deals on each of them.

Appliances

  • Big ticket appliances will be going fro as low as half of their retail price at major retailers like Lowe's and Home Depot.
  • Keurigs will be a a common buy this year going for super low prices and will likely come with accessories or K-cups.
  • Black Friday is the only day of the year that a Kitchen Aide Mixer will be reasonably affordable and justifiable to spend a lot of  money on a cheetah-print or polka dot kitchen appliance.

Best of luck, shoppers. Wearing comfortable shoes, bring snacks, and maybe wear some body armor or chain mail.

With my 22nd birthday coming up this week, I decided to compile the thoughts I have been thinking this week. 22 goes unappreciated for being a big milestone. In my 22nd year, I will graduate from college, start applying for big girl jobs, and hopefully mature a little more. This age is going to be very different from my last birthday and I am okay with that. This birthday is more scary and more eye opening in the aspect that is a real world birthday. I can only hope this year will bring more memories and opportunities my way.

imgres

22. First of all It's my birthday.

21. Hey Taylor, I don't know about you but I'm feeling 22.

20. Wait, I have lived for 22 years now....

19. I am so old... Nothing becomes legal on my birthday anymore.

18. Wait, don't I have to be 25 to rent a car?

17. This is my last birthday I will spend in college.

16. Just kidding, because I'll have to go to grad school...

15. Another scary thought... Grad school is next...

14. I will be graduating college at 22... hopefully.

13. I will also be getting my first big girl job... very hopeful.

12. I'm  a real adult now, time to be mature... Oh god

11. Not that didn't feel old already, but the when the babies born on my birthday this year turn 18, I will be turning 40.

10. Is that really true... 18+22= 40...

9. Are my future birthday plans just going to be going out to dinners now because I am an actual adult?

8. If I even get birthday parties after college...

7. When will I stop being excited for my birthday?

6. At least I know my mom will never stop being excited about my birthday. In fact, she will always text me at the exact time I was born... 6:46pm

5. What if I’ve already lived the best years of my life and didn’t even realize it?

4. Nope, 22 will definitely be better. It always gets better. This year has to be better.

3.  Actually, this will be the first year I won’t have a pre-set plan. Because I don’t have a mandatory track to follow anymore. Since his will be the first year I get to fully choose my own path.

2. This is the year I will finally figure out where I am going in life.

 1.. Like Taylor Swift said, everything is going to be okay. Because as we get older, we also become more mature. New opportunities will arise and also new memories.

This year is bound to come with some scary sentiments but it will also be a good year. This year will be filled with so much exciting  and eventful outcomes that will be new and outrageous.

 

Therapy: To Go or Not To Go

Therapy has changed my life and I want to let you all know what I have found out. Therapy is treatment for increasing mental health on all different levels.

All About That Treatment:

10. Seeking out help does not make you crazy or weak.

anigif_enhanced-4549-1408644760-7

9. Every one can go to therapy. There are no rules against it. tumblr_mbpln2vhR51r8xb8fo3_250

8. Encouraging yourself to get help could change your life.

7. Treatment comes in many forms and therapists have different specialties, so do research on what you need the most. Family doctors also can make recommendations.therapy

6. In addition, insurance covers the visit like a doctor's visit. 

parks-and-rec-treat-yo-self

5.  Because having someone to listen to you without bias and can give you professional life advice is important.

obama-might-want-to-listen

4. In addition, most college students need Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) because it teaches skills to get through anxiety, stress, and depression.

stress

3. After going to treatment you start looking forward to going because you know you are guaranteed an hour of someone's undivided attention.

tumblr_nyrqufl6NR1v0fpvco1_500

2. Because having open dialogue to your family about seeking treatment will bring you closer to your family they are more willing to help you.

hug1. Most of all, ensure your family knows that therapy is a very personal and you may not always want to talk about it.

miley

 

Since I have gone to therapy all summer I am calmer and in a better state of mind. My family and friends have been very supportive and they want to help me. In conclusion, going out to get help does not mean I am sick, if anything it means I am in control and will not let anxiety or stress take over. Knowing that I can learn from my treatment continues to inspire me to be a better person.

If you’re not in college yet, I’m sure you’ve heard some crazy stories from your friends about what happens on a college campus. Here’s a list of the craziest things that happened to real students their first year of college.

7. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

I was living in the dorm at my school in Boston and at the time the snow was about a foot high. It was around 9 pm, and my roommate had gone home for the weekend. It was nice and warm in the dorm, so I just had some flip flops and light PJs on. I forget why, but I stepped outside for a second, and right after the door shut I realized I only had the key with me for the door to the front of the building. I had to run around the building through the snow in flip flops to let myself in. So uncomfortable and embarrassing, but I learned to always keep track of all of my keys when going out in the snow.

6. A well rounded diet

I ate Moe's like 4 days in a row.

5. Easy Mac is a fire hazard

I was showering in the dorm around midnight and the fire alarm went off. I had to run downstairs with shampoo still in my hair and stand outside freezing in 40 degree weather with a hundred other kids. We were allowed back in the dorm 10 minutes later after the fire department concluded that the fire was caused by a student who forgot to put water in his Easy Mac.

4. Crash Course

 

A girl passed out in a huge math exam and no one noticed.

3. Because... art

My art teacher came in with some pulleys, rope, a bunch of wooden planks and said "We are going to suspend these planks at varying heights all around the room." We had this maze of wooden planks intersecting the room, many planks being 15 ft long. He had us stand on the more study planks (still risky) and then he wove rope through all of us suspended on planks and gave the end of the rope to the remainder of the students. Then he says "TUG OF WAR!!" Us on planks go flying in every which direction and we are all flailing and crashing into each other. The teacher seemed more than amused.

2. The "duty" incident

I was returning to my residence hall after studying in the library during reading days and there were these two guys trying to get in. One was clearly drunk, but wasn't able to take care of himself and his friend who was totally gone. The kid had already thrown up outside so I brought them in and told them to wait while I found the poster with the number of the RA on duty that night. On my way I ran into three girls walking down the hall who had also clearly been out that night. When I asked if they had the RA on duty's phone number, they literally fell on the floor laughing because I said "duty". I finally got the number and called the RA. By the time I got back campus security was taking care of the kid who had thrown up again and was now passed out. The three girls were still on the floor laughing.

1. Gotta love your roommate

My roommate threw my shoes in a trash can in the hallway. I got them back though.

We've all seen some crazy things at parties. We all have stories that start with alcohol and end with someone doing something outrageous. Whether you're in high school or college, there's always something insane bound to happen. Fortunately, these next 9 people decided to share their most memorable experiences.

9. I went to use the bathroom upstairs away from the party and found a drunk naked friend passed out with no clothes on. The shower was running but she was sleeping in the doggystyle position with her face on the bathroom rug.

8. When I was in high school I went to my first senior party (I was a freshman but I had a few older friends) and there were a couple guys doing drugs in the bathroom. About an hour later one of them comes into the living room where about 15 of us are dancing and playing quarters, and then he just squats down in the middle of the floor and takes a sh*t.

Still have no idea what he was on.

IMG_3568

7. Been to quite a few wild/trashy parties. Some of the craziest things I've seen have been a guy pulling a knife after a disagreement (he got taken down immediately), a couple who nobody knew having sex in the middle of the room, and a dude walking in completely obliterated with a raccoon he had found while on his way to the party.

IMG_3566

6. One night after a few games of beer pong in the garage we decided to shave my buddy’s head. Unfortunately, I didn’t own hair clippers so we figured a beard trimmer would do the trick. Nope. After ten minutes of struggling, we only managed to take out large patches all over his head. He was shaved down to the skin in some areas, and in others it just looked like a giant chunk of hair had been pulled out.

Eventually the batteries in the trimmer ran out and we just left it that way. In the morning he looked like road kill.

5. So, when I was around 16, I had some classmates over when my dad was away. We'd gotten a bunch of beer, and as the evening progressed, we got... tipsy.

A group of my friends had the brilliant idea to go outside and jump down our trampoline, conveniently placed under the second floor veranda.

What they didn’t expect, was that when hitting it from a 45'degree angle, you also bounce out at a 45'degree angle. And if you hit it hard enough, you can theoretically fly.

That is, until you crash into the kind elderly neighbours hedge and scare her to death.

IMG_3572

4. It was a backyard party and everyone was staring each other down, like a fight was gonna break out any second. Was about to leave with my friends when I heard glass shatter, then a girl scream "What did you do!?!?!" and then saw a guy bolt past me followed by a mob of dudes chasing after him. Apparently, he bottled another kid over the head.

3. When I was 19 I had some people at my house for a small get-together with work friends. A lot of them were too drunk to go home, so I let them crash at my place. One friend in particular had too much to drink, so when he had to throw up he ran for the bathroom. He didn’t make it to the toilet, and instead threw up in mid-air. When I walked into the bathroom it looked like his head had spun around like the exorcist - there was vomit absolutely everywhere. He was sitting on the floor with tears in his eyes using one tiny square of toilet paper to dab the vomit from the side of the tub.

I thought I had cleaned it all up until I found some in the shower the next morning.

IMG_3574

2. My house was the party house for a long time when i was growing up. I think its because me  and my brothers are all 13 months apart, so our teenage years were pretty wild to say the least.

Had a friend who walked into my house in the middle of the night during one of these parties ass-naked. I had no idea until like two people came up to me telling me there was "a naked Ed" running around the house.

He wore an American flag for the rest of the party after that.

Good times.

1. A couple years ago we decided to have a birthday party for my friend, and since I had a beer pong table we had it at my place. What I had forgotten, however, was that I didn’t have a plunger in my bathroom, so when my friend threw up all his birthday pizza he clogged the toilet and then had to pull the chunks out with his bare hands.

I'm addicted to being crazy

fun

When people say the word "crazy" everyone instantly thinks of loosing your mind. But for me crazy means a completely different thing.

By crazy I mean this. Playing hard to get, being a tease, making men feel like they have a chance, ect. That's my kind of crazy. Now listen ladies there is nothing wrong with doing those three things. It doesn't make you a slut or a bitch. It makes you unique and believe me it leaves the boys wanting more.

I wasn't always like this honestly. It just kinda happened one day and here's how. My friends and I went to a party at the beginning of my freshman year of college. I had recently broken up with my boyfriend so I was kinda a mess. That was until I got some alcohol in my system. I got introduced to a guy on the football team and the only possible way to describe him is "hot" actually take that word and it's about a billion times more extreme than that. So I was kinda on cloud nine when he asked me to dance.

This was a night of firsts with my first sip of alcohol, my first encounter with a guy that perfect, and definitely my first dance. I mean sure I had slow danced, but we sure as hell didn't slow dance. We got really into it and my friend was then ready to go so she came and found me. I told the guy I was leaving and I did just that except I left him with the biggest hard on in the world standing right in the center of the room. Normal girls would feel bad for the guy but oddly I didn't. It was a rush for me. I had found my high.

Every weekend I went out. And each night I would find a guy or as my friends called him my "victim." The more I went out the more creative I got with these guys. My only rule was no one night stands. I wanted to leave these boys praying that they would be able to get into my pants and then have them begging for me to stay as I walk away not even looking back. It got to the point where I would kiss them, leave hickeys, feel every inch of them and let them do the same to me. And just in time my friend would swoop me away by saying she's ready to go. I would turn around and normally they would ask for my numbers which I always gave them my number. Handing out my number was a sign of hope for them and I sat back and chuckled as my phone blew up with the "wanna hang," "how are you," you name, and it was texted to me. If any of them ever confronted me in person I instantly acted like I didn't know who they were.

I'm sure this may sound like an awful thing to do but I see no harm in it. I never got the reputation of being a slut just because I never slept with any of them. It was simply just as nice little game I liked to play. Many have asked me if it actually works and do they come crawling back for more? And the answer to that question is yes, they do. It's a torture game and boys only want love if it's torture. And as Taylor Swift would say they will come back each time I leave because darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a day dream.

We live in a world that is filled with exposure. There are some things we need to see and others, we simply want to see out of curiosity. However, there are times when we see things that we want to see, but we wished we hadn’t. Unfortunately, the image will forever be embedded in our brain. Here are 12 things that you can never unsee.

12. Your roommate doing "it.”

Sometimes you just want to not see stuff. This is one of the things you never want to witness.

11. Insane, crazy brows. It’s literally something that you can never erase from your mind.

Sometimes people get so creative with their makeup that you wonder if they’re human or alien beings.

10. When your parents hint that they have a sexual life.

You know they had to do it, but that doesn’t mean you want to have the visual floating around in your head.

9. People who clearly have no business in a thong. 

Everyone has the right to express themselves, but sometimes your self-expression hurts others more than you care to realize.

8. The scary maze.

Does anyone remember the scary maze? It was one of those times you wished you weren’t so curious.

7. The time someone told you to Google “2 Girls, 1 Cup.”

One of those times you shouldn’t click a link, Google search or take a suggestion from a friend. Do. Not. Do. It! Don’t do it!

13) There’s a difference between dirty and messy. Messy people are just cluttered and all over the place, not gross.

12) Most of time time, we know where the important stuff is under all the clutter. “Most” being the key word. 

11) We do clean. Our stuff just gets messy again in the span of 2 hours.

10) Honestly, we don’t know where all the stuff comes from. 

9) We are not hoarders. It just looks like a lot of stuff because its all over the place.

Have you ever wanted to buy fossilized poop or 55 gallons of lube? Who am I kidding? Of course you have! Online shopping can take you down a strange path sometimes, and we all love visting strange places here and there. Rather than make you search for these places yourself, I have compiled a list of the 20 craziest things you can buy online!

 

20.) Nicolas Cage Pillowcase

Have you had any trouble getting to sleep lately? This pillow case might just be the cure! If hit classics such as Conair and Face Off don't put you at ease, then honestly I don't know what can. Lay back and enjoy Nicolas Cage under your head as you sleep, how cozy.

19.) Positive Pregnancy Tests

Selling positive pregnancy tests online has become an easy way for some pregnant women to make a few extra bucks. Why would you want to buy a used pregnancy test? According to one Craigslist post there are a few reasons. "Wanna get your boyfriend to finally pop the question? Play a trick on Mom, Dad or one of your friends? I really don't care what you use it for." The average price for one of theses bad boys (bad girls?) on craigslist is about $25-$30.

18.) Hitch Mounted Stripper Pole

You know what all of your tailgating events have been missing? A freaking stripper pole, thats what! Class up your ride with this portable stripper get up and see where it takes you.

17.) DVD Rewinder

Nothing ruins my day more then going to use a DVD and realizing I am going to have to rewind it because someone else forgot to. Wouldn't you agree? Of course you wouldn't, because this is a terrible...terrible...terrible failure of a device.

Buy Here

16.) 55 Gallons of Lube

I bet you are so sick of going to the store every few days to pick up another gallon of lube. What a buzzkill! Pick up this 55 gallon drum of lubricant so you will never have to make that trip to the store again...ever.

All girls get bored with their hair. It's a fact of life, when we see the same thing in the mirror every day it gets dull after a while. No amount of styling will convince us otherwise, we just need a change. But, as college students, we can't always afford to hit the salon every time we want a new look. So, we have to do the unthinkable, the stylist's nightmare...we use box dye. But that brings a load of anxiety along with it. Every girl who's ever dyed her own hair will understand these stages of the struggle:

12. You go to the drug store and see all the options and know your hair won’t look like the model on the box’s when it's done.

11. Convincing yourself that if you dye it yourself, all your hair will fall out. 

10. Or that you'll look straight up ridiculous. 

 

We don’t always stop and think what went into an Instagram picture before we double tapped it. For a lot of guys it’s point, shoot, caption, and upload. On the other hand for some girls, it’s quite a lengthy process and can be very stressful. “Do I look pretty?” “Do you think my Ex will like it?” “Is this too much cleavage?” Instead of Instagram being a simple app in which we share our lives through photos, some girls have turned it into a full time job. Here are the steps girls go through when they are about to upload a new photo.

1. The Motivators- This can vary from having a delicious looking meal, to your friends telling you that you look hot, and even to fighting with your boyfriend but you still want him to see how much fun you’re having with your friends. No matter what it is, these are the reasons you get the little thought in the back of your head to upload.

2. The Photo Shoot- Obviously we can’t just take one photo! When it’s time to upload the perfect picture, we need an array of options and poses to get the best shot, that will get the most likes. With an average of 25 photos and 10 different poses, you’re sure to find one everyone can agree on.

3. The Choice- Now that you have a wide selection of pictures. It’s time to slowly go through and carefully critique each photo. You don’t want to pick one too quickly and have your Ex see you with a lazy eye. Every inch of that photo needs to be perfect and after a half hour photo shoot there has to be something there to work with.

4. The Filter- What filter you choose can debatably be the most important choice of the night! Early Bird may make you look washed out but Lo-Fi may be a bit too hipstery. You need a filter that will make that photo pop and make viewers stop scrolling to check it out.

5. The Caption- You need to find something simple. A caption that doesn’t ruin that photo but still perfectly describes your night. Use your hashtags wisely!

6. The Panic- The photo is posted and you start to worry. “Did I use the right filter?” “Do we look like we are trying too hard?” “Why is my like to minute ratio so bad?!” After all this work, you’re now considering just deleting the picture and drinking your failure away.

Florida State University was put on lockdown and secured early Thursday after a gunman opened fire in a campus library and was then killed by the police.  We have the full story here with a terrifying video at the bottom of the article. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone at FSU during these times. Nobody ever thinks something of this nature could happen on their campus. It's scary to think how all of this happened, and we have the full story below with a scary video at the end of the article that will give you goosebumps. Here's the full story:

A representative of the Tallahassee Police Department said at a news briefing that three people were being treated for gunshot wounds.

FSUNews.com reported that the shooting occurred at around 12:30 a.m. local time on the first floor of the Strozier Library, a multistory building at the center of the campus. The site reported that at least four gunshots were heard and approximately 30 police officers responded to the scene.

The university sent out a “dangerous situation” alert after midnight Thursday, cautioning students and faculty to seek shelter indoors. At 2:41 a.m., it issued a statement on its Facebook page declaring the campus secured. It was not immediately clear if the wounded being treated at the hospital were students.

Allison Kope, a freshman from Cocoa Beach, said she was on the library's first floor when said she heard a loud noise and then there was a lot of commotion. She said people were screaming about a gunman and chairs started flipping over.

"You never think something like this is going to happen to you until you have to react in that situation when someone is screaming there is a gun in the building. I ran for my life," she said. "I ran right out the backdoor. My laptop and everything is still in there. It was shock. It was just instinct. You don't think about anything else, you just go."

Reo Morris, 24, a second-year graduate student from Clearwater, Fla., received the advisory on his phone. He said in a phone interview that he was in touch with friends at Strozier Library who were under lockdown as the police searched for a shooter.

Toni Haywood, a junior, told ABC News that she was on the second floor of Strozier Library at about 12:30 a.m. when she heard gunshots. Minutes later, people on the first floor ran upstairs, telling students to hide, she said.

“The police came on the intercom and said that there was a gunman in the lobby, and I think he said two people had been shot,” Ms. Haywood told ABC News. “He said to stay away from doors and windows and to stay where we were. We all waited, then the police came back on and said the gunman was in custody and to stay where we were.”

Mr. Morris said he frequently worked late at the library.

“I have no clue what could have possibly happened to make someone do that,” he said.

The university, one of the largest in Florida, has about 40,000 students enrolled in 16 colleges spread across Tallahassee, the state capital. The university has recently drawn criticism for reports of preferential treatment in criminal matters for athletes on its football team, a contender for this year’s national collegiate championship.
