11 Guilty Pleasures All College Girls Are 110% Guilty Of

Because everyone loves to watch Netflix all day.

When you're in college, it's hard to always remember to eat healthy, exercise, or get enough sleep. Sometimes, or more like all the time, it feels like your life is consumed with studying and partying. Probably more partying, at least in most cases.

1. Binge-watching Netflix shows

I had to start with the most obvious because this is something that everyone does whether you're a book nerd or nightlife extraordinaire. I know that I could spend a whole day in my bed and probably almost finish an entire season of a show because I actually have.

2. Eating a whole pizza and then an entire carton of ice cream

This might not be the healthiest option, but it is definitely the best.

3. Trying the stupid bed exercises you found on the internet so you can watch Netflix and work out

Just a heads up, they don't actually work.

4. Wearing a baseball hat because you're too lazy to wash your hair

All girls know that if you're wearing a baseball hat odds are its too cover up your greasy hair. So boy, do not try to be funny and take them off because first, hat hair, and second, just no.

5. Online shopping

It is a serious addiction, especially when you need to try and drown out your boring professor.

6. Wearing only leggings and sweatpants

If I never have to put on jeans again, my life would be complete.

7. Making wine Wednesday an everyday thing

8. Dancing alone in your room

When you're stressed out it's always the best cure.

9. Taking candid pictures with your girls

The truth is they are never really turn out as cute as you expected.

10. Buying new school supplies to study but really just procrastinate

Alright, this is the worst form of procrastination and I know that I'm extremely guilty of this one.

11. Going out even when you know you should study

Sorry, but did you go to college to miss all the date parties and T-shirt Tuesdays? I think not.

The Importance Of Journaling

The journey to discovering "YOU."

I believe in writing. I believe in keeping a daily journal to capture your thoughts, ideas, and emotions on a regular basis. Journaling not only relaxes you and helps clear your mind, but it also teaches you a lot about yourself. I have been journaling every single day since February 2017.

I have taken breaks here and there mainly as I transitioned into college, but now I am back on track and loving it!

Journaling helped me find myself. The journey to finding yourself and discovering your true being is something that never has an end, but writing on a regular basis definitely helps speed up the process. Writing everyday sounds very strenuous and time-consuming, but it does not have to be! You can write a few sentences, bullet points or multiple pages. Customizing your journaling experience is key to sticking with it!

Do not force yourself to write an amount you are not comfortable with because you may become discouraged if writing does not come natural to you. The goal in writing daily is to record a snip-it of how you are feeling each day and what you are going through. Getting started may seem like a hassle, but you will thank yourself in a few months when you revisit your journal and see how far you’ve come. Journaling has gotten me through so many tough times. Anything from boy issues to anxiety and depression over having severe cystic acne in high school.

The beauty in writing is that you are literally recording your own history. Weeks, months, even years later you are able to read exactly what you were doing on a particular day and all the obstacles you were dealing with at a certain point in time.

Writing helps you realize how far you have come and grown as a person; the overwhelming amount of comfort you receive from making this realization is indescribable.

I have made it through so many things I never thought I would be able to at the time, and it is a very humbling experience to discover how strong and resilient you really are.

We all go through so much and endure so many hardships throughout our lives, and documenting our journey is one of the best ways to find ourselves. Grab a pen and journal and start your journey to bettering yourself.

Be Selfish Because You Actually Need Yourself

The only person that is truly going to be concerned about you, is you.

Be selfish.

OK, now hear me out and let me explain.

From a young age, we are all taught not to be selfish. We are taught to put other's needs above our own, and sometimes: it stuck. Our parents and teachers and soccer coaches thought it was a great idea. We were being taught to not be assholes; but now, some of us are caught with the issue that we don't know how to be selfish.

They drilled it into our heads so much that we don't know how to care for ourselves. We don't know how to be selfish, but we need to. We are all old enough to know when to put other's needs above our own, but we need to do the reverse. It's for our own good.

So be selfish.

Be selfish because the world was not taught that being selfish was a bad thing. Be selfish because the only person on the planet concerned about your wellbeing is you. I'm sorry to say it, but it's very much true. No one is going to help you. No one is going to be concerned about you, except for you.

Be selfish. If you don't want to do something, don't do it for someone else. Don't drop everything for someone else, because often don't do the same for you. Be nice, and be pleasant, and absolutely help them out, but do not expect them to do the same.

Be selfish, and be self-sufficient, and be able to take care of yourself because others won't do it for you.

Be selfish and look out for yourself.

Be selfish but be sweet and pleasant and a good friend.

But be your own best friend.

Know what you need more than anyone else.

Be your own advocate.

Be selfish, and be selfish until you don't have to be anymore.

Be selfish.
