12 Things That Are Only Acceptable For College Students

Things college students do that the rest of the general public finds abnormal.


College is a fun time. You are finally an adult and free to do what you want. With this new found freedom, comes some weird habits we have adapted that other people don't find normal. Here's some things that are only acceptable if you are a college student...

1. Sleeping until 1pm daily

In fact, when you wake up before 10 or 11 people question why you are awake so "early".

2. Wearing sweatpants every day of the week

Why waste jeans for an hour class? Sweatpants allow the comfort you'll need to trudge across campus in all weather and then sit and semi listen in class.

3. Watching 10 or more Netflix episodes in a day

It's just so hard to turn it off once you've began. You just need to watch one more episode to find out what happens, just one more...

4. Eating breakfast at 1pm and dinner at 10pm

No college student eats dinner at 6pm or breakfast at 9am. We sleep late and have classes at dinner time.

5. Drinking on weekdays is the norm

Everyone knows that the bars are less crowded on weekdays. You and your friend have off classes on Monday night so hit the bar for a few drinks!

6. Laying in your bed all day, only to leave when you need food

No one will think it's weird either. It's become a part of life. A nice part of life.

7. Submitting papers at 11:58pm when they are due at 11:59pm

I'll admit there's been times I submitted papers early, but only because I thought they were due ready and I was actually late.

8. Sleeping anywhere at any time of the day

You know those kids who sleep on the couches in the library? They are all of our spirit animal. Everyone loves to sleep. Anywhere.

9. Showering once every three days

Does anyone really take a shower daily? Maybe they do. Maybe it's just me.

10. Eating out multiple times a week

It isn't always in the plan, but how can you turn down a call from a friend to grab sushi or wings? It just so happens your friends ask you to get food together more than once a week.

11. Having no money but spending majority of your paycheck on food

We all complain that we are poor and then spend our lunch breaks at Chick-fil-a and Taco Bell. I'm guilty. I know you are.

12. Crying and having breakdowns more than once a week

It's perfectly normal to see people crying around campus or having a breakdown on social media. It occurs daily.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
