10 Simple Pleasures Of A College Student

College is a stressful time for everyone. Classes are hard, being away from home is scary, and adulthood is waiting way too closely in the future. For that reason, us college students have to find solace from all of the stress in any way we can, even if it's only getting out of class early enough to sneak in a nap or taco night in the dining hall.

1. Getting into all of the classes you wanted

2. Not having to wait in line for a printer

3. Getting out of class early

It's better than Christmas.

4. Even better, when class is canceled altogether

I live for e-mails from my professors saying that they're canceling class. There is no better surprise.

5. Having enough time for a nap

College students need naps like they need to breathe.

6. When the dining hall actually has good food

It's a rare but beautiful feeling.

7. FaceTiming your friends from home

It's always the best part of my day.

8. Getting in bed after finishing all your work

It's what we all live for.

9. Waking up on a weekend and realizing you still have time to lay in bed

Let's face it, any day you get to wake up without an alarm is a great day.

10. Finishing your last exam during finals week

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
