14 Times College Students Are Really Drunk Uncle

"SNL's" Drunk Uncle just gets us.

14 Times College Students Are Really Drunk Uncle
Saturday Night Live

If you are like me, college is a whirlwind, and balancing the stress, drama, and embarrassing nights out can be a struggle. The Drunk Uncle sketches on "Saturday Night Live's" Weekend Update speak to me. He may be a middle - aged drunk, but we've all been there. These are 14 times that college students are really Drunk Uncle.

1. When your professor assigns a group project.

Can't I just work alone? I am going to end up doing all the work anyway, I don't want their name on my paper.

2. When we try Tumblr and never fully understand it but are instantly addicted.

Wait, so how do you tag someone? Where is my blog? And why can't I reply to anyone? Wait, can I just show you this cute cat video?

3. When you don't pay for electricity, water, and the dinning hall is buffet style. Take advantage of the free things, because we are really paying for it in some way or another.

Yes, I take tupperware into the dinning hall. Yes, getting free stuff at the student union is the highlight of my week.

4. When you want the room all to yourself but your roommate just won't leave.

5. When your birthday is on a weekday and you have an 8:30 class in the morning, but your squad still has your back and goes out hardcore.

Hey you only turn 21 once right?

6. When you just want to cuddle and date but your school's hook up culture is too intense.

7. When you didn't quite study as much as you should have, and maybe skipped a few too many classes. Hey, there is always next semester!

8. When you have to dress up for formal chapter.

No one wants to get dolled up on a Sunday night. I have too much work to do, I don't have time to make myself look respectable.

9. When you and your friends are looking good for a night out.

10. When you try to act sober and casual, but its blatantly obvious to everyone around you that you're not.

What, who, me drunk? Naw I am straight edge man, I just wear my shirt inside out for fun!

11. When you are trying to avoid someone you hooked up with on campus and you end up seeing them everywhere.

12. When finals have you so stressed out you're not even sure what year it is.

13. When you come back from break and everything has changed.

She is dating who? Why aren't they friends anymore? It is just too much for me to keep up with. I'll just smile and pretend I know what everyone is talking about.

14. When you know that college ends one day, and you don't want to have to face the real world.

Can't I just stay here forever? I can't leave everyone, they need me. And it's not socially expectable to drink every night in the real world. Maybe i'll just be a super senior.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
