10 Struggles Every College Student Faces

"If college has taught me anything, its how to be a successful procrastinator and how to steal a parking spot."

10 Struggles Every College Student Faces

Going into college we all ride the struggle bus pretty much all of the time. College students are probably some of the most stressed out people in the world because of the transition from being a teenager to being an adult. I have compiled a list of 10 struggles every college student has and will face.

1. That week when you have 3 tests on Monday 2 tests on Tuesday, a paper due on Wednesday, and an exam due on Friday. Not to mention its homecoming week, and you have a job.

2. When you’re too broke to buy food but the cafeteria is a long walk so you eat ramen noodles for the 5th night in a row.


Like I said you’re hella broke so it looks like those

slightly worn pants are going to be worn for a few more days because laundry is


4. When you’re taking an online quiz or doing homework and the internet goes out and you have to beg your teacher for an extension.

5. When your class is taking the second test but you don't have the grades from your first test.

6. Waking up 10 minutes before class and finding the will inside you to get up and sprint across campus in your pajamas.

7. When you walk into class and forgot about a test and you don’t have a scantron so you have to run to the bookstore, buy the scantron, and run back to class.

When all you want to do is sleep but your roommates have 20 people over at 3 in the morning.

9. FINALS. When the final is nothing like what they talked about in class

10. And lastly, the one time you miss class the teacher decides to give out 5 assignments.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
