10 Thoughts You Have Before Getting Out Of Bed

The struggle is REAL.

10 Thoughts You Have Before Getting Out Of Bed

Getting out of bed in the morning is a day-to-day struggle, but something we all have to do in order to survive at school. Here are the 10 thoughts that probably pass through your mind as you're trying to wake up in the morning.

1. "NO!!!"

You're in denial. You can't believe it's already time to wake up. It feels like you've been asleep for 5 minutes. Why, cruel world, why?!

2. "5 more minutes..."

You press snooze. You're still fine on time. Then you press it again. And again. And again.

3. "Crap, I'm late!!"

Twenty minutes into your "snooze", you realize that time is not forgiving, and you're running late. You need to get out of bed or you'll be hellaembarrassed when you stroll into your lecture hall late, after your professor has already started talking. Hopefully he/she won't call you out in front of everyone!

4. "Is it even worth going to class today?"

You're ahead of the readings, and all you do during class is switch tabs between Facebook, Twitter, and other repetitive websites. It wouldn't kill you to skip one class.

5. "What if there's a pop quiz though?"

Although these small quizzes don't help your grade much, you know that failing this quiz can hurt you. You can end up getting this grade dropped, but what if later you get a 2/3? You'll probably have to keep that grade, which is a bummer. Is sleeping in today worth it?

6. "I guess I'll go. But I really need to shower."

Maybe you fell asleep last night doing homework. Maybe you were out and some drinks spilled on you. Either way, you feel gross and need to shower before you do anything.

7. "Will I have time for coffee?"

No matter how late you're running, there is always time for coffee. Coffee saves lives before morning classes, or any classes for that matter, so it is a necessity. In the wise words of my computer sticker, "but first, coffee."

8. "What should I wear to class?"

Living in State College, we all know that every day the weather goes from 50 degrees to 70 within a few hours. How do you prepare for that? And will your class be hot or cold today? The answer: layers. If you need to carry your parka around later, do it.

9. "I just need to check my phone."

Obviously checking your phone before getting out of bed is a necessity. We all need to see the lack of texts and snapchats we received before our fateful 9 ams. Who knows, maybe there's an off chance that someone actually tried to contact you.

10. "Ugh I'm getting up."

Getting out of bed for class is a true struggle, but you'll be happy later that you went to class, and it'll all be worth it.

My advice to all college students, incoming freshmen and upperclassmen, is go to class. Even if you don't have time to put yourself together that day, just go to class. It's always worth it in the long run. You never know what helpful tips your professor will give that day, so why risk missing that? The more you go to class, the better your grades will be; it's not that difficult. Your grades at the end of the semester will be the most rewarding part.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

United Nations Day 2023: Understanding The U.N.

As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101

Multiple countries flags on poles

For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members, and what better day to do that than United Nations Day (today!). So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations:
