13 In-Class Annoyances All College Students Can Relate To Because All College Students Have Experienced Them

Oh, great, another 30 page powerpoint lecture followed by more notes? Can't wait.

Do you ever feel mentally unprepared for class? How about drained from your daily class schedule routine? Or maybe don't have the patience to get through the day? Yes, we have all been there, too.

That's why I have selected 13 common thoughts and feelings all students have during class with gifs to match.

1. The walk to your class to take an exam you didn't study for... at all.

2. When you're dreaming of that leftover pizza at home.

3. "Class, we will be working in groups for this project."

4. When someone is sitting in your unassigned, yet personally assigned, seat.

5. Having no clue what the professor is talking about and getting picked to answer a question.

6. That one student who constantly interrupts the class with irrelevant information.

7. The one day you decide to skip class and end up missing a new project introduction, seven reviewed chapters and free attendance points.

8. After your all-time favorite pen runs out of ink.

9. Group discussions turning into heated debates.

10. Being unable to copy notes fully because your professor flies through them.

11. Did I mention the professor also "doesn't believe" in putting the notes on canvas to copy for later?

12. Two minutes remaining till class is over and the professor yelling "class isn't over yet, sit down!"

13. When you realize class is canceled and you can go grab that pizza at home.

15 Things That Totally Suck About Leaving Your Roommate For The Summer

You don't know what you've got till it's gone

Living with a roommate is one of my favorite parts of college. That may sound crazy depending on your own roommate experience, but living with a girl like mine, you'd get it. It's like having a sleepover with your best friend every night, a luxury I didn't realize I loved so much until I returned home for the summer and went back to living by myself.

With just my parents and me at home, I felt right away how different it was living back at home then in my cozy dorm with my best friend. It's much quieter, less cramped, but certainly less fun (sorry mom and dad). I can't shout to my neighbors to come over or run down a flight of stairs to join all of my friends for a movie night anymore and it's #tragic. Here are 15 things that change after leaving my roommate for the summer.

1. No more late night chats.

The best part of the day was getting tucked into bed and gossiping with my roommate like we were 5th graders at a sleepover. Now I have to facetime her and it's just not the same

2. No one to make sure I get up in the morning.

Nothing like a personal alarm clock when my alarm doesn't go off and I almost miss class

3. Only one closet.

My options are severely limited now.

4. No one to get ready for bed with.

It's much easier to be motivated to wash my face every night when my roommate drags me to the bathroom with her.

5. No one to complain to when I'm bored/stressed.

My personal therapist.

6. No one to have mid-study dance parties with.

I need study breaks okay

7. No one to have late night snacks with.

Because sneaking down to your kitchen for a snack is much less fun than eating peanut butter and pretzels in bed with your roommate

8. No one to binge-watch a new show with.

I'd rather watch 13 Reasons Why season 2 with my friends :/

9. No one to share my random thoughts with.

Whether it's a weird fact I saw on twitter or a deep philosophical question, I miss just blurting out whatever popped into my head to my roommate

10. No one to take BuzzFeed quizzes with.

It's not as fun finding out that I'll meet my soulmate in a Starbucks in 2026 when I'm not finding out when my roommate will meet their soulmate too

11. No one to make me clean my room.

Living with someone else gives you so much more motivation to keep your room clean

12. No one to tell me if I missed a spot when straightening my hair.

A true blessing

13. No one to tell me if my outfit looks dumb or trendy.

Guess I'll just send her pictures

14. No one to make me study.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, roommates= motivation

15. No one to have a midlife crisis with.

Things I Miss Now That I'm Home From College Again

There are so many reasons to be glad that the school year is over, but if you've done it right... there are a lot of reasons to miss it too.


So, school is over now and I've come home. As expected I was so relieved at first. No more showering with flip-flops, no more listening to screaming girls running up and down the hall, and a space that is mine and mine alone. But after a week or so of being back, there are a few things I've already started to miss.

I know that not every single person has the ideal roommate but I got really lucky with mine. Coming home I was excited to have my own space, but now when I'm doing my midnight scrolling, I'm realizing that I miss being able to talk to her about the funny things I see in that very moment. Tagging, DMing, and texting her doesn't feel the same as a long night of giggles spent together.

Also, while seeing old friends when you get home is amazing, and there is always a lot to catch up on, you do start to miss your other friends too. Being in college means that your friends are going through similar things as you are all the time. You have tests together, clubs together, and sometimes you spend way too much time procrastinating together. The bond you begin to form is one you definitely begin to miss - especially when you guys don't live close off of campus.

Coming home also means you don't have a set schedule or at least not immediately. You may come back to a previous job and that puts something on your calendar, but the free time you still have during the week can be a little too much. I know I've spent way too much time obsessing over the Tati/James drama than I ever would have at school. The routine I had at school kept me busy and entertained, and I'm honestly missing it a lot right now.

There are a lot of other things to miss too - even things you thought you wouldn't. You miss the classes, the teachers, and sometimes the food. I know I miss the environment. It isn't a perfect one, but it's full of people just trying to find their way. We are all working through the roller coaster of life and we are all stuck on one beautiful campus together while we figure it all out. I miss meeting new people at the bus stops or running into old classmates and catching up.

I guess the bonus for me is that I just finished sophomore year which means I have more time to spend at school. Come senior year, I guess I'll have to learn quickly how to deal without the things I miss - and also create a schedule so I can travel to see all of my friends, but those are all problems for future me.
