11 Things You Find Under Your Bed at the End of the Year

You found that pair of underwear that you thought you lost and with it, your dignity.

11 Things You Find Under Your Bed at the End of the Year
Stuff Monsters Like

If you’re anything like me, your room is a mess by the time finals week rolls around. Your laundry isn’t done, your clothes are all over the floor, and you might not have taken out your trash. Who has time to clean when there’s so much studying to do? You might even attempt to clear a path through the wreckage by shoving a few things under your bed. No shame, I do it. What’s a lofted bed for, if not to store things underneath?

The underneath of your bed becomes a bit of a black hole, a cornucopia of your filth and laziness. Luckily, you find all the things you lost, and more, when you clean up your room for the summer.

1. The pair of underwear that you thought you lost

Congrats, girl! You still have all 7 of those $27 for 7 thongs. The washing machine didn’t actually eat them! Your roommate didn’t actually steal them – time to let go of that grudge, I guess.

2. Someone else’s underwear

You’re bound to find a stranger’s pair of underwear under your bed as you clean up. Maybe you stole them from the laundry room, somehow thinking that those men’s boxers were your’s… weird. Maybe a suitor left them behind after a midnight tryst. Would they really go home commando? Probably not. None of these situations make sense, but that doesn’t change the fact that you are now the foster mom to a pair of size medium vineyard vines boxers.

3. Empty fifths

Cliché? Probably. Doesn’t change the fact that you needed to get a little sneaky throughout the year. You live in a "dry dorm" after all. No law can keep you away from that strawberry lemonade Svedka, though.

4. Cheetos and Dust Bunnies

Those late night eats have made a home of their own under your bed. Puffy Cheetos have turned to crunchy ones… not a pleasant sight.

5. An Overdue Homework Assignment

You argued with your professor for weeks about this assignment. You held your ground, knowing that you handed it in on time. You swore that your professor was the one who lost it. You were headstrong, steadfast in your conviction to not redo the assignment.

Whoops… looks like you never handed it in after all.

6. A library book

You’ve been accepting the fees for this late book on “Sand Rock Art” all semester long. Little did you know, it was shoved in the corner, right next to that collection of scarves that you never wear.

7. Five dollars


8. A dead animal

Cockroach, mouse, bunny, or your freshman roommate, at least you finally know where that weird smell was coming from.

9. Hair ties. So many hair ties.


10. A sports bra

Your excuse for never going to the gym: “I can’t find a sports bra, I totally can’t go to spinning today.” If you cleaned your room earlier in the semester, maybe it would still fit.

11. Hopes and Dreams

You find your planner, filled with all the things you had planned to do this semester. You’ll just have to add them to the to-do list for the fall.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
