In high school, everyone seems to find their place in a clique, deemed for 4 years by a name or title based on who they associate with. Back to school season is in full force – don’t let your social strategy get sucked into one and only one clique. In order to make this school year a successful one, be sure to take away a lesson from each standard high school clique.

When you apply for a reality show or game show nowadays you are in it for the big bucks. Even the lowest paying shows have you walking away with a couple thousand dollars. However, some gifts are just priceless such as the hush puppies and encyclopedia CDs you used to get on a Nickelodeon game show. Watch and learn how to get a contestant excited.

Clerks. Frankly, he wasn't even supposed to be there. Every time something goes wrong, he reminds us and rightfully so. Feel free to use this quote freely, even if you were supposed to be in that day.

Dear Future Roomie,
Hey girl(s) hey! I'm Shari, a 22 (almost 23!) year old amazing, smart, funny woman working in Midtown. I have compiled a list of things you need to know in bullet form - for an easy read. Ready? Here we go...

The Mighty Ducks. There is nothing more inspirational than a speech from EMILIO! aka Gordon Bombay. Whether in junior hockey, the olympics, or a really fancy high school, always remember these wise words:

Mallorie for letting me steal 20 books off her kindle - this being one of them. This book has opened my eyes to the world, seeing everything that seems so ordinary in a completely new perspective. *spoiler alerts coming so stop now if you don't want to know what happens *

This is not your typical cartoon. It is highly inappropriate but also very funny. Although the movie may be lesser known, some of the characters have found a place in pop culture history. One of the main ones being Jessica. And here is her infamous quote.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was a great book and I highly recommend it. The book discusses the story of a married couple, Nick and Amy, and Amy's disappearance. To say that the book was a roller coaster is an understatement. Both #25hour bloggers (Shari and I) have read the book and we end with differing opinions. The real question is, who's side are you on? I honestly can't decide but below lays out some reasons that argue both. Spoilers below! Stop reading if you want to read the book and enjoy it! * Shari's Note: This is probably one of the best books I've ever read and if you haven't gotten your hands on it yet, you are severely missing out.

I used to have this best friend. Her name was Samantha, or Sam, as we called her. For three glorious years, Christina, Sam and I spent 98% of our time together. We'd go on AIM, play SNOOD, listen to CDs, watch movies that made us cry, and snoop her sister's diary. Her apartment had this tiny balcony. I remember the three of us sitting out there til the wee hours of the morning, watching the moon cast shadows on the street. I wish I could remember what our 12 year old selves talked about all the time, but silence was not a sound often heard.

Cara approached me with this crazy idea. "Sign up for this 5K with me!" she said. My initial response was a "hell no". But she said free teeshirts were involved and that a bunch of us from work would do it together. So I gave in and signed up. Now for some background, I am NOT a runner. I've done P90X and I Zumba on a weekly basis, but I get winded when I run for the subway or the bus. I used the $50 fee as motivation to get my ass in running shape. I ran twice a week for about a month or so and was able to run 2 miles before wanting to collapse. Then I got distracted and didn't run for a month. Suddenly, the run was a week away. I told Cara I was screwed and we'd never finish the 5K.
