10 Thoughts All College Students Have

To drop out or not to drop out? That is the real question.

10 Thoughts All College Students Have

College can be stressful, and many who are not in college don't understand the back and forth battle we college students have while attending college.

Not only is there the stress to succeed and do great things during your college career, but there is also the stress of keeping a social life, making time for your family, staying healthy, getting a good grade, being involved, and on top of that working and staying financially stable as you go to school.

I spoke with some students and came up with 10 things that cross students minds during college.

1. Why am I here

The main one is always questioning why we are in college, what is the point, and if we have made the right decision.

2. I should become a stripper; they make a lot of money

When money is tight, we college students begin to reconsider our majors and wonder if we should've taken another route. A route that is full of dancing and dollar bills.

3. Please let class be canceled

Sometimes you just need a day off, but professors don't think so.

4. I should just drop out

When it comes to those finals and you have a week of all-nighters and your brain is fried — these are the moments when you begin to wonder if it is all worth the pain.

5. I can't go out tonight I need to study

Being responsible, organized, and productive is a must in college. Otherwise, you are just going to stress yourself out later with the piles of homework you have got.

6. I'm going out tonight, screw it

But then again...college is some of the best years of your life, and you can't just study your heart out all four years. You need a break from that too.

7. I can't skip class, but I really want to

Again, responsibility is a must in college. It is a back and forth battle, not having anyone telling you to go to school. You don't want to, but you go anyway because, in the end, you are paying for all of this.

8. I need a nap

College students are around the clock tired and always feeling it. Even when we sleep eight hours and take a couple naps, it always seems like there's a never-ending feeling of tiredness.

9. Should I sleep, workout, do homework, or Netflix...

Sleep is essential, but so is homework, and catching up on your favorite show. Plus being social is hard to juggle, and no one will truly understand the struggle of a college student more than another college student

10. This was worth it

In the end, once you finish the four years, you realize that all those all-nighters and mental breakdowns MAY have been worth it in the end.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
