11 Ways That Spongebob Explains College

A running cartoon from 1999 has captured my life in college and journey into adulthood better than anything else ever could've.

11 Ways That Spongebob Explains College

We couldn't wait to graduate high school. We wanted to be adults. No more mom and dad telling us what to do! For the first time, we're independent (semi, if you're a commuter like me) and...it kinda sucks.

"Enjoy your childhood while it lasts." Who else scoffed at the phrase that almost every adult would tell us? I know I did. Now, as a junior in an university, I find myself longing for the things I despised as a child and I find myself relating to the most childish (but still one of the best shows ever) shows: Spongebob.

A running cartoon from 1999 has captured my life in college and journey into adulthood better than anything else ever could've.

1. Refusing to grow up

Yes, Spongebob, being an adult sucks. Sometimes I want to cry and eat cookies instead of facing my responsibilities.

2. Being broke

The bills are piling up, the Chipotle cravings are rising, and your bank account is at three dollars.

3. Emotional breakdowns

What's college if you don't have a breakdown at least every other week?

4. Pulling an all nighter to write a paper

The bane of my existence. Shout out to MLA, APA, Chicago and any other paper style they come up with. Try me, I've done them all.

5. Realizing you have 3 friends

College will make or break your friendships. It is also a time in which we learn to be independent and spend time with ourselves more than anything.

6. You become sarcastic and apathetic

It's the golden age.

7. You value being a child

Whether it's watching cartoons or visiting Disney 24/7, you learn to embrace your inner child

8. You value your best friend

What would we do without them? They keep us sane.

9. You forget everything on the final.

There goes the past 15 weeks worth of material!

10. You're constantly stuck in traffic.


11. You'll constantly be sleep deprived

Then you start to wonder "when was the last time I actually slept?"

11 Christmas Movies You'll Remember If You Were A 2000s Kid

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.
