12 Things That Will Make You Say "Yep" If You're A Broke College Student Who Loves Spending Money

What's a savings account?

1. Checking your bank account and being excited that there's more than like $0.30 in it

2. Saying you need to "treat yourself" at least eight times a week and being able to hear your bank account crying

3. Eating out for every. single. meal. even though you have a kitchen full of food

4. Trying to save money by going to happy hour only to spend an obscene amount of money anyway

5. Hitting the town with your friends and somehow blowing all your money

6. Spending a fortune on cute clothes, knowing full well you're going to wear frockets and leggings every day

7. Basically living at Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Tim Hortons, and basically any other place you can get coffee and probably a donut

8. Getting your shifts covered because you never feel like working and then wondering why you're broke

9. Two words: Spring. Break.

10. Decorating your room/dorm/apartment and then continuing to do so all year

11. Getting your hair and nails done even though you can't remember the last time you wore real pants

12. Spending any extra cash on those cute school supplies you will never use

Basically, we should all probably learn how to save money instead of spending it. But also know that as you read this, I am probably online shopping with money I don't have.

But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

11 Encounters You Only Experience When You're 10 Years Older Than Your Siblings

No I'm not their mother, but I sure do I act like it.


I'm a 19 year old college student who has 3 younger siblings, all 3 being at least 10 years or more in difference to me. I have an (almost) 10 year old full sister named Gabby, a (newly) 4 year old half brother named Dylan, and lastly a 1.5 year old half sister named Marvell (yes, like the comics but with an extra "l").

My parents were married rather young, around my current age, but my dad remarried, and for the longest time I thought I'd be an only child. All this seems normal & reasonable with my situation in life; but God would only know what kind of things I, and many other like this, have to deal with and have learned. It's not as more offensive, as there's plenty worse in life than being accused of being too young.

With collective community talk and experience, here are 11 encounters siblings like me may have experienced in their lifetime with those little ones.
