10 Things College Students Do In Their Free Time
http://blog.sleepdallas.com/naps-friend-or-foe/

Before I began college, I imagined I'd have no free time. It seemed as if college students were always busy doing something important and efficient with their lives. However, now that I myself am a college student, I can see my thoughts were completely wrong. College students can go days at a time without having to study, do homework, or even (while I do not recommend it) attend class. With all this free time on our hands, there are several activities we college students enjoy participating in to pass the time away.

1. Eating... a lot.

Why not? It's not like you had anything going on anyways. College students have access to free food all over campus, and you can bet we are going to take advantage of that.

2. Spending money we don't have.

Two things go hand in hand when you're a college student: constantly needing to purchase something and constantly being broke.

3. Staying up all night binge watching Netflix.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F6361157148969187771234143130_200-14.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=801&h=b87707b7021a25d0bb77a61002c49cbad05bf84f8834c5d02936f167c02f3837&size=980x&c=954579931 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F6361157148969187771234143130_200-14.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D801%26h%3Db87707b7021a25d0bb77a61002c49cbad05bf84f8834c5d02936f167c02f3837%26size%3D980x%26c%3D954579931%22%7D" expand=1]

College students see finishing a whole season of a TV series in a week as an opportunity, not a challenge.

4. Taking naps.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636115753639948127-1983603190_200-18.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=419&h=e6732b89cb818315872c0787348a863842ecc5d3ecd72d6a1da50bd18b157208&size=980x&c=2587750519 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636115753639948127-1983603190_200-18.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D419%26h%3De6732b89cb818315872c0787348a863842ecc5d3ecd72d6a1da50bd18b157208%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2587750519%22%7D" expand=1]

Since we're up all night watching Netflix, we must find other times in the day to catch up on sleep.

5. Scrolling through social media.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636115724177069461-1010666337_200-15.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=469&h=a4e8ba0cef71e3e024fbeb698b87d347f8a2a375eff067b72a8191d00b4b85b0&size=980x&c=2041579538 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636115724177069461-1010666337_200-15.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D469%26h%3Da4e8ba0cef71e3e024fbeb698b87d347f8a2a375eff067b72a8191d00b4b85b0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2041579538%22%7D" expand=1]

If you don't share at least one cute puppy video on Facebook a day are you really a college student?

6. Going out.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636115728844548727881549518_200-16.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=544&h=5590a6faf3d1ebbfec9b982fb63771bdcdf5c313b920400605e4833cafc23dfd&size=980x&c=1291123382 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636115728844548727881549518_200-16.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D544%26h%3D5590a6faf3d1ebbfec9b982fb63771bdcdf5c313b920400605e4833cafc23dfd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1291123382%22%7D" expand=1]

Much of a college student's free time can also be spent attending parties.

7. Having FOMO when we decide not to go out.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636115731623424766-1058143740_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=852&h=fd87a8ac1fd920f49db27afddc993c253491017b4affe55b68308ae825eb9b93&size=980x&c=2247869225 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636115731623424766-1058143740_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D852%26h%3Dfd87a8ac1fd920f49db27afddc993c253491017b4affe55b68308ae825eb9b93%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2247869225%22%7D" expand=1]

Sometimes, when college students decide to spend their free time binge-watching Netflix and scrolling through social media, they regret the decision to stay in for the night and develop FOMO, also known as fear of missing out.

8. Questioning what we are doing with our life.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636115742084878733-1544076058_tumblr_nn0nmvUFRs1rkiuhro1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=476&h=2ea01679eb186473fb79d96b59400d1ef2c4607fc0aabfe77e66b1f386b2bba5&size=980x&c=3488847189 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636115742084878733-1544076058_tumblr_nn0nmvUFRs1rkiuhro1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D476%26h%3D2ea01679eb186473fb79d96b59400d1ef2c4607fc0aabfe77e66b1f386b2bba5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3488847189%22%7D" expand=1]

Are you really in college if you don't have a breakdown every now and then about what you are going to do when you get out into the real world?

9. Complaining.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F09%2F636115746429476920768964809_TinaFeyEverythings.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=699&h=0dae68231ade0690dfb5a56e3c13d3d741faecc67739d10fae39a6bdbf1378bb&size=980x&c=2246249523 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F09%252F636115746429476920768964809_TinaFeyEverythings.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D699%26h%3D0dae68231ade0690dfb5a56e3c13d3d741faecc67739d10fae39a6bdbf1378bb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2246249523%22%7D" expand=1]

"Oh, you had two tests today? I had two test AND an essay due today. I win."

10. Procrastinating.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.
