Abigail Fisher, aka Becky with the Bad Grades, was reportedly/maybe spotted at this past weekend’s UT vs Notre Dame game. And if it’s her, she still looks mad as hell.
Why you mad, Abby?
Here’s another purported pic.
Meagan Richards, a recent #UT16 grad in African and Africa Diaspora Studies, tweeted out this golden video at UT’s commencement ceremony.
The title speaks for itself. Metaphor.
Buzzfeed interviewed Richards, who commented on her video going viral:
“I knew the video made me and my friends laugh, but I never expected it to make this many people laugh,” she said.
It finally hits you when you look at your calendar: SPRING BREAK IS ONE MONTH AWAY! You suddenly have significantly less time to lose your winter break weight than you though. WHO CREATED THIS HORRIBLE SYSTEM?
You make a promise to yourself: you are going to eat healthy for the next month. So long to anything delicious and enjoyable, you are going to be the picture of health over the next four weeks.
One day into your diet, you realize just how hungry you are so you eat everything in your entire kitchen so you’re just sitting there like “F**k. Now what?” Well, there is always tomorrow to start your diet.
You look up all these crazy diet regimens that you heard have worked in the past. You set out to the grocery store and get the healthiest stuff you can find.
Ugh, all the healthy food is making your dizzy from lack of fat and sugars. You have to give in and go to Shake Shack. You’ll just start working out really hard tomorrow.
The desperation starts to hit that your time is winding down so you do all the mathematical equations of how much you will have to work out and how much you can/cannot eat over the next 25 days to feel your very best.
There’s free food at work and you would be economically hurting yourself if you didn’t take advantage of the opportunity. Your diet can always start the next day.
You try on your bathing suit you just ordered and go momentarily blind.
Okay, you’re finally going to try that juice cleanse everyone has been raving about.
HOW HAS ANYONE EVER SURVIVED A JUICE CLEANSE???!?!?!?
Holidays are known for being the happiest time of the year, but if you are a student at the University of Texas, then you know the holidays can be pretty heavy on the heart. Holidays are the time where you have to spend an entire month away from your Longhorn friends and even harder, Austin.
You finish your last final and feel like you’re on top of the world, because you now have an entire month of no homework or studying.
It comes the time to say goodbye to your friends, and it nearly breaks your heart. You physically don’t know how you’re going to handle the separation.
On your way home, you can’t help but get that excited feeling of being home and having all the time in the world to treat yo’ self.
When you get home, the first thing you do is jump in your bed because it is even more comfortable after not being slept in for months.
You feel unbelievably spoiled as your family makes you home cooked meals of all your favorites, and you got your eye on it all.
Finally, you are reunited with your hometown best friends and it seems like no time has passed at all.
You and your hometown friends spend much needed time catching up on all any any drama that has happened over the past three months.
The rare moment arises that a party in your hometown comes up, so when you arrive you make sure to look your absolute best.
At the party, the weird kids from your high school attempt to catch up with you and your fabulous Austin life despite your blatant lack of interest.
Then the inevitable and tragic moment happens: you run into your ex.
When you can tell people are pretty over listening to what an amazing life you have at UT, you give them the benefit of the doubt and attempt to listen to them share their boring stories from their boring colleges.
After a few too many drinks, the unrequited drama of summer seems to rise to the surface, and you can’t help but be glad that you’ll only be stuck here for a month.
The horrible yet inevitable moment arises where you realize you don’t fit in with your hometown anymore because you are far too superior and weird like Austin meant for you to be.
Your parents start reprimanding you for being too hungover/sleeping in too late as if waking up at noon on the weekends isn’t waking up early in college time.
During the actual holidays, you are subjected to spending time with your relatives who take it upon themselves to question you on every facet of your life, expecting excruciatingly specific details.
It gets to the moment during break where you realize you’re better left off only hanging out with yourself until you get to go back to UT.
Then the real hometown boredom hits, and it hits strong.
Looking at your calendar and realizing you only have a few days left of break, you suddenly realize you have accomplished absolutely nothing all break.
But it’s time to go back to the best place on Earth and you can’t contain your excitement. So long, hometown, you’re off to the best city in the world.
Let’s keep Austin weird, shall we?
El Arroyo is probably one of the best places to go for a margarita and chips & queso. But, it’s even more well-known for their signs they put up daily. We’ve hand-picked our favorites.
1.) Welcome to Austin.
This should replace our population sign as you come into town.
2.) Soy Milk.
I can’t. No puedo.
Black Swan should have queso, tho.
4.) Oh, Willie.
We’d buy from you any day.
Always live up to them.
And if you’re really hurtin’, you can check out our Horns Countdown!

Give us a reason to piss off any Aggie and we will. Like this pic from Justin Tucker, the famed Longhorn kicker who will forever live in history because of this:
Justin, you already stole our hearts and now you’re stealing our Instagram “likes”. Take ’em all!
