Let's face it, not all of us have quite perfected our time management skills. A lot of us are far from it. And some of us (me) seem to be lacking the skill altogether. I'm literally running late to everywhere and on everything, including this article (hence my inspiration for it).

But we all have our own different flaws, and for my fellow "late-runners," we'll get there one day, just probably not on time. If you are a college student, and you find yourself falling into this category, you have most-likely been late to a class or two, or all of them.

Depending on the class and professor the range of embarrassment can vary for when you walk into the classroom late and all eyes turn towards you as you awkwardly shimmy through the tight rows of legs and backpacks to your seat.

Like most people, we try to prevent putting ourselves through that cringe-worthy moment, but alas we continuously struggle with running late. If you've experienced this these are probably the thoughts that ran through your head:

1. "OK, I'll leave for class in 30 minutes, that will give me plenty of time!!"

Me being proud of myself for showing some responsibility.

2. *30 minutes pass* "OK just five more minutes and then I will DEFINITELY leave."

Knowing that I'm still lying to myself.

3. *10 minutes pass* "OH, SH*T, CLASS IS IN 10 MINUTES FML"

Me trying to run down my apartment stairs in a panic to leave.

4. "I can't believe I'm causing myself to be late again!"

*Pretends to be surprised by her own lack of responsibility*

5. "Why do I ALWAYS let this happen"

I swear it's like I like stressing myself out every day for no reason.

6. *Driving to campus* "If I park in 3 minutes that will give me 4.5 minutes to sprint to class and then I'll be basically on time"

7. "WOW, of course, I can't find a single parking spot when I need one the most!!"

Maybe if I showed up earlier than three minutes before class started it'd be a lot easier to find a spot.

8. "FML FML FML""

I literally say this to myself the entire time I sprint to class.

9. *Gets to the classroom door 5 minutes after class has started* "Should I just not go in and spare myself the embarrassment?"

This is usually when I contemplate whether I should walk into class late for the 50th time and risk my professor calling me out, or just go to the student union and eat.

10. "F*ck it I'm going in. Who cares if anyone judges me?"

Me faking all my confidence as I open the door.

11. "Oh, shit, why did I just make eye contact with the entire classroom"

*Immediately regrets walking in*

12. "Where TF is an open seat?!?"

13. "OK, NEXT TIME I will not be late!!"

When you promise yourself to get your sh*t together.

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What I Have And Will Continue To Learn From Working With Kids

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.

I have loved kids ever since I can remember.

I was an only child up until I was 5 years old. Those years were great, but I spent a good amount of them laying on the floor, crying and begging my parents for another sibling.

Soon my sister came, then another sister and then my brother.

I loved them so much and wanted to do nothing but care for them.

My siblings made me realize how much I love working with kids, how much I love teaching them and how much I love learning from them.

I had the opportunity to help my dad coach my sister's softball and basketball teams. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Throughout high school, I spent time volunteering in elementary classrooms, and any "uncertainty" I had about what I wanted to do with my life was gone.

The "uncertainty" was the fact that I maybe wouldn't get paid enough, I wouldn't be good enough or people would think I wasn't smart enough.

But I can learn more from kids than I could ever learn from my professors.

And I'm not saying anything against any profession. But we all have our things.

And mine is kids, mine is teaching.

Children teach me to take life a little less seriously.

They have taught me that you truly never know what other people are going through and we are all going through something.

Children will teach me to keep my patience.

They will keep me young forever.

Children have taught me to never pass judgment and always spread kindness

They will teach me lessons that I can't even imagine right now and things I don't even know.

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.
