17 Things I Won't Ask For As A Single College Girl

Some girls beg for things, but I'm not even going to ask you for them; so who is the better option here really?

17 Things I Won't Ask For As A Single College Girl

Ask and ye shall receive... or so they say. I, however, am not asking for anything extravagant or un-give-able.

I am just a girl asking for a human connection, as we all are, but here is a list of the things I am NOT asking for from a significant other.

1. Too much

I will never ask for you to do something absurd or out of reach.

2. You to love me immediately

I get that these things take time, but you should know that I get attached easily.

3. Attention all of the time

I have my own stuff to do, so I will be fine if you don't feel like talking to me for a little while.

4. All of your time

I know that you have your own life and things to do, so go do them!

5. Instant fame

You don't have to introduce me to your parents or your friends until you want to.

6. Perfection

Nobody's perfect. You live and you learn it.

7. Best Friends

Your friends don't have to be my friends and my friends don't have to be your friends.

8. Compliments

You ain't got to tell me I look good because I know.

9. A relationship right away

10. For us to agree on everything

It is actually good for us not to agree on everything that way we always learn something from each other!

11. You to be the guy of my dreams

Because, frankly, he doesn't exist.*

*yes, he does. His name is Damon Salvatore.

12. To compromise your goals

I will help you reach your goals if anything! Go get 'em, babe!

13. A relationship without hardships

There will be highs and there will be lows. I'll be there through it all if you allow and want me to.

14. Money

I got my own money and a job, so you do you boo boo.

15. Us to become virtually the same person

We will never have a joint facebook, ever.

16. "Relationship goals"

Sure, those are nice and flattering when someone says, "Oh, y'all are #goals," but they only see half of it.

17. You to trust me with your life

I understand there are things that you would rather experience alone and keep to yourself. I get it, I do.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
