10 Reasons Why Your College Friends Are The Best Friends

10 Reasons Why Your College Friends Are The Best Friends

They make college feel like home.

Kelsey Simeone

The fall semster of freshman year is a huge adjustment. You don't have any friends (yet), you don't know where everything is, and you're away from home. It's hard to imagine meeting someone you can go to the dining hall with, forget finding a best friend. But soon enough, you become close with a few people in your classes. The next thing you know, you hang out every day, and are always together. These people are the ones you can count on for everything and anything, at any time of day, making them your best friends. As if that isn't reason enough, here's ten reasons why your college friends are the best friends:

1. They make nights in and out fun.

Whether it's actually going out, or staying in and ordering take out, you always have fun when you're together.

2. They know your schedule and already planned when you can eat lunch together.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday, you're meeting up at 1:15... duh.

3. The group chat.

Even if it means they yell at you for falling asleep before midnight on your birthday, or when you don't check your phone and there's twenty texts, the group chat makes your day.

4. They make reuniting that much sweeter.

5. They're there at any time, day or night.

2 a.m. or 8 a.m. they're always there, and better yet, they're right down the hall.

6. Their closet is your closet.

Suddenly you hate everything that's in your closet and can't find anything to wear, but then you remember you have a second closet.

7. They make distance feel like nothing.

Living down the hall or living in two different states means nothing, you'll still see each other and stay in touch no matter where you are.

8. They know all of your weird habits.

They know that during exam week you follow a strict schedule that includes when you're showering and for how long, no questions asked.

9. There's no boundaries.

You burp in front of each other, you ask them the dumbest things, and you walk into their room like you live there.

10. They make college feel like home.

College is a huge adjustment freshman year, but with the right group of friends, they make school your new home, and you can't wait to go back.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
