Everyone please.


It's my unfortunate responsibility

to share with you some terrible news.

It seems that over the weekend

your fellow student, Marina Mills,

committed suicide.

Is it true that she filmed it on her web-cam?

One of your classmates died,

and all you care about is whether you can see it?

There was a video uploaded to the university

website this morning.

Some of you were crafty enough

to grab it before we could take it down.

I urge you not to watch it.

Anyone caught sharing it

will be suspended - period.

No discussion.

Are any of you friends with Marina?

Or have any info that could shed light

on this tragedy,

If so, see me after class.

Liv, this video is so cute!

- So not scary.

- Right.

That was so good.


- Hey.

- Hey.

- Hey. - Hello...

Someone didn't come home last night!

Yeah, again.

- So are you like monogamous now?

- Liv, it's not a dirty word. Jesus!

I know, I'm just jealous...

for being dumped.

You were not dumped.

You knew him for one day.

It was an amazing day!

So you're in a relationship?

Here we go...

No, it's super cool. Really.

I just...

love all these precious updates

about you and Dr. Surfboard.

- Good for you.

- Oh shut up!

Another argument why internet addiction disorder

doesn't belong in the DSM

is that it's frequently

symptomatic of other disorders:

depression, anxiety, trauma.

Often it's an escape from things

we don't want to deal with.

From our everyday lives

to things far, far worse.

But the most common disorder might just be

that we have too much time on our hands.

Play it cool.

Wait a few days.

He already knows I'm not cool.

I think we might have an excellent

example of internet addiction disorder

right here in class.

Besides from Miss Woodson and Miss Matheson...

Does anyone else here experience symptoms?

- I love it!

- I like that.

- And this is good.

- I really like that filter.

I can show you how to do it.

- Look at Kobe.

- Jesus. When's he going to get over you?

- He's such a creeper.

- He is not a creeper!

- Who is that?

- That girl in my class.

Zero friends sounds like super-weird.

Maybe she just started her profile or something.

Is she like 12 years old?


She's really talented.

I like it.

- You like it when she rips her hair out during class?

- Come on.

I literally saw her pull an eyelash out today.

It's a condition called trichotillomania.

You would know about it if you

cracked open a textbook once in a while.

- Owned!

- Oh well, whatever...

- I'm actually changing majors next year.

- And the year after that?

- Ow! Two-fer!

- Whatever!

What are you cooking? Seafood curry?

My dad was a psychiatrist,

so I guess I want to follow in his footsteps.

That's nice.

Are you doing it for credit,

or do you really just want to do it?

I'm not sure.

I just transferred.

- I don't know anyone yet.

- Well, now you know me.

Are you in the dorms?

My friends and I just got an apartment.

It's amazing...

But we're definitely not getting any work done.

- Too many friends.

- Exactly.

I'll see you around campus.

Bye Laura.

- I thought med students had homework.

- You're one to talk.

Well I'm studying - Internet Addiction Disorder.

- And you're your own case study.

- Exactly.

What's the deal with this girl?

I don't know. I think she's lonely.

Is she your friend

or your first mental patient?

She'll be my second mental patient.

She's going through every post

I've ever made in my life.

Wow! She's crazy.

- Look what she just sent me.

- I want to see.


It looks like you guys are going
