It seems from semester to semester there is some sort of trend Web site that the college-age group is obsessed with.

In the spring, FML.com was among the popular Web sites.

The site is open for any person to submit random stories about misfortune and bad-luck.

If you think that you’re having a bad day, looking at that Web site and seeing how other people lives are going can make you feel better or give you a good laugh, even if it’s fact or fiction.

Another popular site involving submitting stories or one-liners of ridiculous times is textsfromlastnight.com.

The Web site’s title is self-explanatory, and the site is hilarious and can sometimes leave you speechless.

While textsfromlastnight.com is still a popular site, there are other Web sites that have taken over the laptops and computers of college students.

Farm Town, Sorority Life and Mafia Wars are applications that are accessible through Facebook.

While they are not individual Web sites, each of these applications have a huge following, and include everything from harvesting crops to buying Coach purses for your sorority sisters for your online world.

I, too, harvest crops and send my neighbors flowers and pigs, and think that it’s a different way of wasting time and avoiding studying for tests.

Along with the game world of Facebook, there is a spin-off of Facebook called Lamebook.com.

Lamebook features all of the ridiculous things that are said and posted on Facebook.

After just a few minutes of looking at Lamebook, you can’t help but laugh the entire time your viewing the absurd and obscene things that people actually post and say.

Another site that can make you laugh for hours and can distract you from the hours of studying you have to do is PeopleofWalMart.com.

The people of Wal-Mart Web site shows you the bad, the ugly and no good of Wal-Mart.

The followers of the Web site are encouraged to go to Wal-Mart and take pictures of the ridiculous people/cars/things that you find there and submit the pictures.

Each picture is accompanied by a hilarious one-liner about the picture and add to the mystique of it.

There is a monthly contest that takes place in which the top three most disturbing and hilarious pictures are chosen.

Wal-Mart gift cards are the obvious prize, and 1st prize receives a $100 gift card, 2nd place $50 gift card and finally a $25 gift card for 3rd place.

One Web site that has remained equally popular, if not consistently increased in popularity is postsecret.com.

Post secret is an on-going art project in which people submit their deepest, darkest or most funny, random secret on a post card and send it in to Frank Warren, Post Secrets creator.

Secrets are posted every Sunday, and Post Secret books are available at all major bookstores.

It goes to show that college students have a wide range in trending Web sites, and I can’t wait to see w
